Remember the NCIS Super Bowl promo that teased the potential return of Special Agent Ziva David (Cote de Pablo)? Well, the latest episode to air on CBS gave us a brand-new revelation that is blowing our minds.
Here’s what you need to know: In season 16, episode 13, titled “She,” Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham) found a crucial piece of information that confirms Ziva isn’t dead like we were initially told. How could you!?
It all started in this week’s episode when the team reopens an old missing persons case after finding a malnourished child hiding in a storage unit. While searching through Ziva’s case notes, Ellie stumbles upon a message that made us nearly knock over our coffee table.
It reads, “Eleanor Bishop, for the safety of my family, please keep my secret.” And by “secret,” Ziva means faking her own death. We’ll give you a moment.
