We’re just one week away from Ziva’s farewell! Get a sneak peak at the heartbreaking episode, including a special tease from executive producer Gary Glasberg.
At this point, NCIS fans are virtually inconsolable. And while I know there’s really nothing that can be said to cushion the blow of Cote de Pablo‘s departure from the hit CBS procedural, I can share a few words from one of the show’s executive producers that will hopefully make you feel better about Tony (Michael Weatherly) losing the love of his life.
During the Sept. 24 season premiere, the official NCIS Twitter account passed along comments and teases from executive producer Gary Glasberg, including a few special treats for all those “Tiva” fans out there:
Also in episode 2…prepare for an emotional payoff between Tony and Ziva like never before.
Ziva’s necklace will return again in episode 2.
Thank you #NCIS fans for never ending support. Special tease just for you on episode two…
…in episode 2 — Tony will lie to someone very close to him regarding Ziva. Have a great night!
So, there you have it: There will be a major “emotional payoff” for the fan-favorite couple. Do you feel any better now?
‘NCIS’ Fans Tweet Confusion About Ziva’s Absence On Season Premiere
NCIS fans went into season 11 already disappointed, knowing they’d only be getting two more episodes with Cote de Pablo — so you can imagine how much more disappointed they were when Cote was virtually absent from the season premiere! CBS has been billing these first two weeks as a two-part farewell to Ziva, but in actuality, it’s all going down in one episode next week.
@LostDeeJay tweeted, “A Ziva-less and a Tiva-less #NCIS simply will not do.”
A far more passionate @mezjennifer added, “LETS TALK ABOUT “YOULL HAVE TWO EPISODES TO SY GOODBYE TO ZIVA” AND HOW SHE WASNT EVEN /IN/ LAST NIGHTS EPISODE.”
And @yuntingchen pretty much summed it up with this tweet: “That really a WTF #NCIS episode. Ended that Ziva didn’t show up for even one second?!”
