For now, NCIS has bid farewell to Ziva David.
After Cote de Pablo abruptly decided to leave TV's most-watched drama this summer, producers had to find a way to tie up Ziva's narrative in short order. The result is Tuesday's episode, in which Ziva's will-they-won't-they partner-in-crime-solving Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) goes to Israel to find her. Once he tracks her down, he begs her to return to Washington with him, but to no avail. She leaves him on the runway with a tearful goodbye and a long kiss.
NCIS: What did you think of Ziva's goodbye?
How will Ziva's exit affect Tony, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the rest of the team? Is there a chance for her to return? And why was her exit arc so, well, Ziva-less? TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Gary Glasberg for answers....

Ziva David has left the building.
Actress Cote de Pablo made her long-awaited exit from NCIS this week. How did Ziva's storyline wrap up? Read our recap to find out:
Cote de Pablo
Among last week's more encouraging TV signs: On the first Tuesday of the official fall season, it felt a bit like a return to the good (or at least simpler) old days when network TV was the dominant game in town, and crowded time periods could support more than one hit. In prime time's starting position of 8/7c, there appear to be three blockbusters duking it out:
Mark Harmon, Leslie Hope
NCIS started its 11th season with a bang Tuesday night — literally. A terror attack on a hotel kills Secretary of the Navy Clay Jarvis (Matt Craven), and may cause Morrow (Alan Dale) to lose his leg. But it quickly becomes clear that the explosion is just a hint of larger things to come. And the group's next target? Ziva David (Cote de Pablo).
Cote de Pablo
NCIS fans have long memories. They fondly recall the scene back in Season 4 when Ziva David, then still a visiting Mossad agent, announced to Tony DiNozzo, "I will kill you 18 different ways with this paper clip." So when the woman who so engagingly played Ziva for eight seasons, Cote de Pablo, announced she was leaving the series, grief-stricken devotees sent paper clips to CBS in protest. But even that couldn't keep Ziva attached.

In case you haven't heard, big changes are underway at NCIS.
A refresher: In the Season 10 finale, Tony (Michael Weatherly), Ziva (Cote de Pablo) and McGee (Sean Murray) all handed in their badges to protect Gibbs (Mark Harmon) in the wake of a Department of Defense investigation into the agency. The episode then jumps ahead four months, when Gibbs is aiming a sniper rifle with FBI Agent Fornell (Joe Spano) in his crosshairs.
Although we doubt it's what was originally intended, Ziva's resignation will likely stick. As fans are well aware by now, De Pablo announced over the summer that she'll be leaving the show. Will the team (and the show) be able to go on without her? Why is Fornell a target? And what additional fallout will result from the investigation into Gibbs? TVGuide.com took these burning questions and more to executive producer Gary Glasberg and Weatherly. Here are the biggest issues the show needs to address early on in Season 11:

Sorry, Tiva fans: Cote de Pablo really will be leaving NCIS this season. And although we expected her character to get written out, is it possible the series will go so far as to kill Ziva?

So, how will NCIS actually write Ziva's exit from the show? — Samantha
ADAM: Given that Ziva was one of three agents who resigned to protect Gibbs, it actually won't be that far-fetched. The season will open with a two-parter that features Colin Hanks returning to threaten Gibbs, prompting a team reunion. "Ziva is out in the ether and Tony has to go off and find her," executive producer Gary Glasbgerg says. "The second episode is really all about Tony and Ziva, and, I hope, delivers all the things the Tiva fans are going to want." Adds Michael Weatherly: "The will they/won't they is answered. Tony's going to be forced to face this Sword of Damocles that's been hanging over him since Season 3." That's Greek for "they're totally gonna do it," right? ...
