** It's a small moment, but Vance's advice to Tim to enjoy every moment with Delilah counts too-- he loved and had a happy marriage with Jackie, a similarly "strong and intelligent woman," and clearly hasn't forgotten what happened back in Season 10.

* The start of "House Divided", judging from the previews, has seen Gibbs and [=McGee=] outgunned and captured after the cliffhanger of the previous season finale, and tortured for a long time, evident by the fact they've both grown full beards from captivity.

** And the climax. [[spoiler:Though it's sweet to see she's as concerned for McGee and even Tony as she's ever been on being reunited, her dialogue from the last few months screams UnwantedRescue. Whatever torture she went through, compounded with Gibbs abandoning her back in "Aliyah," Ziva clearly does not expect to leave Somalia alive.]] [[spoiler:Thankfully, Team Gibbs didn't come totally unprepared, making her ensuing rescue all the more awesome and heartwarming.]]

* Jimmy's crushed look on his face and heartbroken tone of voice when he tells everyone that the woman who was carrying the child for him and his wife has decided to keep it. Questioning himself and wondering if he's really able to be a father.

** After discovering The Calling and unsuccessfully trying to talk a member out of bombing a city bus in "Troll," Gibbs comes across another new member, Luke Harris. For the next two episodes, [[spoiler:''including the finale,'']] he has a few false starts with trying to connect with him throughout the episode, despite Vance, Teague, and [[spoiler:a hallucination of Mike Franks]] warning him not to get sucked in.
*** YMMV, but it's one heck of a TraumaCongaLine for Luke. [[spoiler:He was getting ridiculed at school for being an adopted Iraqi-American, so turned to The Calling for guidance despite the love and support from his own family. Then that family is found gunned down right after Gibbs successfully gets through to him, leaving him devastated and all but completely adrift.]]

* In "After Hours", [=McGee=] gets distracted by the anomalies in the current case they're investigating and violates the agreement that he and Deliah would only talk about work for one minute. Deliah gets angry with him at this, and then they end up fighting over it. After things calm down and the two of them talk it out, Deliah admits that she got so upset because she's scared about work becoming the basis of their relationship. Since the two of them are from different governmental agencies, [[PoorCommunicationKills their might be a time when they're not allowed to divulge anything to each other]], and that's part of the reason why Ellie and Jake's marriage fell apart. This shows that Bishop and the Team weren't the only ones hurt by Jake's affair, and the whole thing has gotten Deliah worried about something similar happening between her and [=McGee=].

* In "Keep Going", the {{Victim Of The Week}}'s son, Ryan, blames himself for his father's death because he feels as if he wouldn't have been hit by that car if Ryan didn't need money due to being laid off the previous day. As a result, he climbs onto the ledge of a nearby building so he can throw himself off of it. Palmer is the first one of the NCIS team to notice Ryan on that ledge, rushes up there despite his fear of heights, and hangs onto him for the entire episode [[TalkingDownTheSuicidal in order to talk him down]]. [[spoiler: It makes Gibbs catching the road rager that killed Ryan's dad, and Palmer ultimately talking him out of suicide, all the sweeter]].

** When he says "I was angry. My wife died, I had to raise a child by myself, and I took it out on you. And I had no right to do that." You can tell that he was also probably apologizing to his son (who's watching him interact with Susan) for his ParentalNeglect after his mother died.

** Special mention to Jimmy's speeches on how he loves his job and his friends, and about looking for the good when bad things happen, especially since he sees a lot more dead bodies and voilent deaths than the average person.
