It absolutely weighs on her

Are ziva and tony dating on ncis

Upon being brought into the room to talk to him, she is shown to have been severely beaten and very weak as well as unsure of how to react at Tony's presence. After a failed attempt to kill Ziva, he escapes and disappears. Ziva asks him why he lied and he returns the question. The hair later even came to hanging past down her shoulders, nearly being elbow-length.

She returns to the team

Their relationship has evolved, has changed. In that moment, I didn't want Trent Kort dead. All I wanted to do was take care of Tali. The shooter evades capture and then kills the Iranian by triggering a bomb attached to his car. The way I've always approached it is that Rivkin loves Ziva.

When McGee called, something hit me. Ziva recalls this, and Tony says that they must have different interpretations before walking away. She was intended to portray one of the lead female roles in a Broadway musical version of The Mambo Kings and had turned down other television roles to stay with it. After this is resolved, she doesn't appear to hold a grudge against her boss, and they seem to enjoy each other's company. Ziva abruptly ends their relationship after learning that he had lied to her directly about his reasoning for being in Washington, D.

There's a real, plain-spoken, straight read between them, so they don't have to jump through hoops. Ziva breaks down when she realizes that Eli had succumbed to his injuries, cradling her father's dead body while sobbing and praying in Hebrew. An insight that we often wish for in real life. She later proves her worth in the same episode by using her training to save herself and Dr.

And it obviously presents a huge challenge to me because whenever they throw something else at me I just have to sort of tackle it and go with it. We end up back in Tony's apartment, and there's some really lovely, emotional stuff that happens. It's already a very complex relationship. Tony bonds with Tali and leaves with her for Israel and Paris to look for answers. Tony about the politics in the hunt for the mole within the team, which required the team to withhold information from each other, and Ziva for reasons undisclosed.

She returns to the team at the conclusion of the episode. Contrary to speculation, she claims she volunteered to join Mossad as soon as she was eligible, and was not motivated by the desire to avenge the death of her sister.

This event serves as the initial foundation for their relationship, and Gibbs takes responsibility for Ari's shooting in order to spare Ziva further pain. Despite this, she agreed to after executive producer Shane Brennan described the scene.
