It does, and finally, when it seemed that she and Tony had bumped uglies in Berlin, they may become an item.

So long as she avoids a bullet to the head, I'll be happy for the character.

Oh why do you have to leave!

They mined her (the character) entire background for plot lines. New blood might give them new ideas. The last couple of seasons were pretty boring.

Ziva alone has been responsible for many familiar themes in the series. Eight years is a long time to be comfortable with that.

I'm optimistic that the show will endure - but this will be it's biggest loss to date.

I am genuinely gutted I love the character and the actress, it won't be the same without her, but as mentioned I will survive as long as they don't kill her...the characters been through enough, she deserves a happy ending. :'(

It's a sharp contrast to some of the people who have left shows in the past and not bothered to come back to film their character's ending, so credit to her for coming back for one last episode.

I wouldn't hold out much hope for her survival though .. the regulars who have left NCIS in the past have all been killed off.

If they did kill off the character, it could certainly inject some life in to the show in one respect, but then in another, they'd probably do the usual and wrap it up in no more than one or two episodes, which is a shame because it could really take the show in a different direction.

We'll see. I'm still not really interested in watching it any more after the first episode of S11, but i'll reserve judgement based on the outcome of Ziva's fate.

Considering they killed Kate which led to Ziva coming into the show, are they really gonna kill Ziva and replace her with another female character? I hope they don't kill her off so she can come back in a later season or in special episodes.

I hope this now signals the end of the show as she was pretty much the best thing in it, by quite some margin. Then again, it's getting very long in the tooth now anyways so hopefully they'll end it gracefully, instead of spiralling down into complete senility which is where they're heading.

Regards

Mark

I did have a bit of a thought as to what will happen - I bet we'll have a scene where they're all in Vance's office and he has all their badges laid out on the desk, effectively just as they left them. Tony takes his, McGee take his and Ziva goes to take hers and stops and says something like "I think I'm done".

IF they don't kill her off.

If they promote that other actor (the one with the black curly hair) to a full cast member and have him join the team as Ziva's replacement then I really AM done with the show

I love her connection with Tony on the show especially when she can't pronounce certain English words and Tony is always on hand to correct her.

I read a few weeks ago that Mark Harmon was considering leaving the show let's hope it was just a rumour.
Without Gibbs there would be no more NCIS for me anyway

Kim Raver is attached to Revolution so unless she leaves that show, I doubt she'd do it.

I think they'll definitely replace her though.

I kind of knew that would happen as she was hesitant about signing a new contract, will miss her but I wish her good luck in the future.

Now all they need is get rid of that irritating twunt in autopsy that thinks he is the new ducky.

Hey, I love Palmer, and gave a cheer when he was (finally) upgraded from the guest-starring position to full-time member.

Can't abide him, it's the actor I really detest rather than the character.

Confirmation of what's going to happen. Obviously a spoiler if you really don't want to know ..

Goodbye to the departing viewers.

I expect I'll still be around. I'm invested enough in the remaining characters to fight through this loss. I haven't come this far just to let it end here.

I'm normally like that with shows - i really struggled with the last season and a half of Battlestar Galactica but I stuck it out as I thought it was silly watching it for so long just to walk away. I just don't get that with NCIS any more because i don't think it will ever change.

There's *a* change coming in about a month ; )

I wish people hadn't moaned about NCIS: Red so much. NCIS: LA kept my interest in the franchise alive.

Well I know about that change, but I mean more along the lines of Tony will still tell stupid jokes, McGee will still be a computer nerd, Abby will be 'kooky' and so on. And they'll stick far too rigidly to 'case of the week' as well with little to no story arcs.

Tony is the one who annoys me most. They have never really developed the character and he is still the same teenage prankster who has not grown up despite 10 years of the show.

Exactly. And when they do the usual end of season storyline over a few episodes and the writers actually give him some 'adult' situations, it shows that michael weatherly is actually a decent actor.

But then I suppose when some episodes pull in 20-30 million viewers, they're not going to change the formula any time soon.
