Go To

Directed by Dennis Smith

Written by David J North

Ziva has a tense reunion with her father, the head of Mossad; Gibbs is forced to make a shocking decision.

Tropes in this episode:

  • Cliffhanger/Wham Episode: Ziva leaves NCIS to rejoin Mossad, and she ends up getting abducted and imprisoned in a terroist training camp in Somalia.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Ziva, as usual. Lampshaded by her father.
    Eli: With traffic, I wasn't expecting you for another hour.
    Ziva: I drove.
    Eli: Enough said.

  • I Did What I Had to Do: Tony outright says this to Ziva on having to kill Michael in the previous episode. She doesn't buy it.
  • P.O.V. Sequel: It starts with Ziva's POV at the end of last episode.
  • Title Drop: When demanding that Ziva stay at Mossad to prove her loyalty to him, Eli describes the events as her Aliyah.note 
  • What Could Have Been: In-universe, Ziva angrily tells Tony that he could have turned Michael in without having to kill him, or shot him non-lethally.
  • Wham Shot: Ziva being held prisoner.

How well does it match the trope?
