Tony and Ziva respected Gibb's like he was there farther and would have hated to have gone behind his back but if that was the extent they would have had to go to to be with each other then they were willing to do it.
When they started to go out Tony and Ziva both made a pact that if things were to end badly then they were going to go on as normal, as it was before for the sake of the team. Did you sleep well? It was really nice of Gibbs to give us nine days off work.
It's not like him to stick to the law that we actually need time off work" She reached her arms out in front of her signalling Tony to come to her. She still kept her eyes shut as Tony leaned slowly over and placed soft pecks on her lips, she returned each one not wanting him to take his lips of hers. Tony slid his hand under her back and under her T-shirt to feel the warm soft skin.
Once he finished leaving small kisses too her lips he started to leave kisses along her gaw and down her neck. Ziva's head tilted back as his lips and tongue reached her sweet spot. I could get used to this. What felt like hours had passed before Ziva opened her mouth to say something, before she could even get any words out Tony pressed his lips hard against hers. They lingered there for a while before he opened his mouth sucking Ziva's lips as he closed his lips on hers, it did not take Ziva long to react to this and start to mimic Tony.

Ziva ultimately kills Ari, who was also her half brother, in order to save Gibbs' life. This event serves as the initial foundation for their relationship, and Gibbs takes responsibility for Ari's shooting in order to spare Ziva further pain.
There is still tension, however, stemming both from NCIS director Jenny Shepard 's decision to add Ziva to the team without consulting him and Ziva's habit of occasionally calling on Shepard, with whom she had a close relationship, to obtain key information in a case without going through regular channels as seen in the Season 3 episode "Head Case". Ducky later tells Gibbs, "You took to Ziva more quickly than to any other agent before her. Timothy, Caitlin, even DiNozzo. I've always sensed there's a strong bond between the two of you.
In "Hiatus Part 1", Ducky unintentionally chastises Ziva for not asking which hospital Gibbs was taken to after the explosion; upsetting her when he implies that Ziva does not care for Gibbs like the rest of the team does. She also finds herself being slapped by Abby when she comments about Gibbs' possible death scenario. Ziva appears in the bathroom following this, extremely upset by the fact that they think that she does not care.
In the second part of this episode, Ziva visits Gibbs at the hospital in the night and begs him to remember. When he becomes angry, Ziva uses his hand to slap the back of her head, causing Gibbs to remember himself within his team.
He remembers that Ziva saved his life and that she had killed her brother to do it while Ziva breaks down and cries into his arms. He remarks that he owes her at the end of the episode, something that would become true when he returns to the US during " Shalom " to help in clearing her name after being framed for murder and a terrorist bombing by Iranian Intelligence.
She admits that she had been under orders to kill Ari when it became clear that he was out of control, but elucidates that she had never intended to go through with it, believing him to be innocent.

Eli is all but dead to me and the closest thing I have to a father is accusing me Ziva reveals that when she finally killed Ari, it was truly to save Gibbs and she was not following her orders, re-earning Gibbs' trust.
After he persuades her to tell her version of the story and she is cleared, Gibbs whispers something to her and kisses her on the forehead,  causing her to break down in tears of relief. Mark Harmon later disclosed that he had improvised the final moments of the scene, and when questioned about what Gibbs said, replied, "[De Pablo]'s not gonna tell you any more than I am—I don't think. Director Vance hands the approved application to Agent Gibbs, who in turn transmits it to Ziva, whom he calls "Probie".
In the Season 8 episode " Baltimore ", after learning that her partner Tony DiNozzo arrested Gibbs when he first met their boss, Ziva comments that she would rather arrest her own father than Gibbs.
In the Season 9 episode "Safe Harbor", Ziva questions his seemingly solitude lifestyle, prompting him to respond, "You're never alone when you have kids," kissing her forehead and adding, "Good night, kid.
Family[ edit ] Ziva is depicted as having a complex family history, and, as of the tenth season, all of her immediate family is deceased: Tali, her seldom-mentioned younger sister, was killed in a terrorist attack against Israel;  her mother died in an unspecified violent incident;  Ziva shot and killed her half-brother to save Gibbs;  and her father was shot dead in a targeted killing.
Her choice to fatally shoot Ari after his guilt becomes apparent in order to prevent him from killing Gibbs is often regarded as a pivotal moment for the character and a recurring subject within the show. I was not following orders. She recalls him taking his children into the forest for "fun" blindfolded and making them find their own way back.
When Ziva was a child her father told her that one "can never truly know a person or their secrets". At the time, she had refused to believe him but later said that he had never been more honest with her. It is remarked upon several times that Eli "raised her to be a killer",   a fact that he does not deny and explains to Director Vance: It is my dream that my daughter will not have to make that decision with her sons and her daughters. I would like my grandchildren to be doctors and architects.
To live a happy life. To grow fat and old. She stays in Tel Aviv with her father and Mossad. The episode ends with a cliffhanger in which Ziva is being tortured at a terrorist camp in Somalia by Saleem. It is later revealed that her father sent her on this mission despite knowing that the risks made it a suicide mission.
Gibbs holds Eli responsible for Ziva's captivity and subsequent abuse by Saleem and his men, saying that Ziva did not have a choice  and that "her father left her to die in a desert.
Shortly after her being rescued from Somalia, she sends an email to her father formally resigning from Mossad, and applies to become an official NCIS agent. Eli attempts to prevent her from leaving Mossad by having her former team leader Malachi Ben-Gidon accuse her of killing a marine who had been among those who died on the Damocles.

She learns what it's like to have compassion and loyalty. As an immigrant, she faces prejudice and racism, but she handles it with poise. That's the freshness she's injected into [NCIS], which just wrapped its fourth season with military honors and where second-season de Pablo is de anti-pablum, a no-nonsense ninja of a nemesis for those nasty evil-doers who soon discover that the Israeli is for real.
She was tough, fearless and, often, tender. Coville from Cracked magazine questioned the choice to script her as "an espionage expert who knows nine languages The network released the following statement: Glasberg commented, "Ziva and Ray are a little open-ended at the moment.
There isn't any closure to it. We'll have to see where it leads, but I think he was pretty clear that he has a job to do at the moment, and that's gonna be the primary focus for him. After a fallout with Tony, she tells him that Ziva respects him and cares about him. He at first deflects but then says, "Surround yourself with people you would give your own life for.
He's protective of her and cares about her and has feelings for her, and, at the end of the day, wants to make sure that she's safe and happy with the direction of her life. Season X and the Year of Tiva and an emotional farewell[ edit ] They've been through extraordinary circumstances together, so it doesn't necessarily require the explosion. There's a real, plain-spoken, straight read between them, so they don't have to jump through hoops. When she watches Tony does his stuff or he watches her hide behind that barricade of an Israeli assassin princess mentality, they both clock it, they know it and they can move around each other.
It's a great relationship. Tony and Ziva, feeling bad about missing Jimmy and Breena's wedding, try to cheer each other up by joking about how awful weddings are—an exchange that begins to take on meaning when they become wistful about "the vow, the ring, the kiss, the ketubah Later, when the Navy Yard is seconds from exploding, Ziva refuses to leave the building without Tony.
The bomb goes off while they are still in the elevator; Ziva and Tony fall to the ground, with Tony's arm around her waist, and their free hands clasped tightly as the elevator appears to crash. This is the year. I've had years in which I thought, 'Oh my God, this a Tiva year,' and there have been years he thought were Tiva years….
The truth is, we have yet to find out where that storyline is going to go. I think they're toying around with us like they always do. Weatherly stated, "She was really the beginning of his love for movies and why that is such a deep, penetrating part of who he is. The last gift she gave him was to turn to the movies as a moral compass.
It's a profound, soft, vulnerable moment. Tony, believing her to be going on a date, badgers her until she admits that she goes to the opera every year on her deceased sister's birthday, as Tali had wanted to be a singer. Unable to obtain tickets for her himself, he makes a CD of opera music and gives it to her to listen to.
We end up back in Tony's apartment, and there's some really lovely, emotional stuff that happens. It's all the things I hope that people who enjoy the Tony-Ziva relationship will look for. Near the end of the episode, he comes to see her off as she prepares to fly to Israel for Eli's funeral and assures her in Hebrew that she is not alone.
I think they're always testing that relationship and they're always throwing things at it to see how far they can take [it]. It's already a very complex relationship. They're very close; they're very good friends; and they trust each other. So, I think the complexity of it all can go further and I think they're going to explore more. I like things the way they are, so I'm not in [to] that.
I'm petitioning against it. Before the episode aired, Glasberg disclosed that they would share a slow dance while there, resulting in "a very personal moment of vulnerability where her guard goes down and she lets herself melt into his arms". Elbaz was the reason her parents split up. She tells Tony, "If it were not for Orli, things would be different. I would be a different person. Tony replies, "Then I should catch her before she leaves, you know, and thank her.
Michael and I crafted that scene. We felt the moment was very intimate, and we thought that just looking at each other was enough. And the director kept saying, 'No, I want the moment to be longer,' and we had to sort of fight the director. Finally, I had to say, 'Listen, if there was any more time of staring into each other's eyes, it would be like, cut to a hotel room.
We certainly enjoyed it.
I told [Tony] — without really realizing what I was saying and then I realized it came out the wrong way — I said, 'God, I felt a little drunk when I was staring at you. They both survive the crash, and despite being urged to back off by various other characters, Ziva ultimately kills Bodnar in the following episode.
This leads to DOD investigator Richard Parsons Colin Hanks initiating a witch hunt against the team and Ziva being aggressively interrogated about her conduct in the aftermath of her father's death. When he approaches Ziva about the accusation, she admits that it was a "moment of weakness" because she felt alone. This obviously hurts Tony, and he says, "My Hebrew must not be as good as I thought because I could've sworn when I dropped you off at the airport, I told you you are not alone".
Ziva recalls this, and Tony says that they must have different interpretations before walking away. Despite this, he later confronts Parsons, demanding that Ziva be left alone and calling her his best friend. I think there's a little more to it than that. I think they're sort of dancing around each other and trying to get a sense of how to move forward and, based on everything that's happened in the last year, where they are and what the next step is going to be.
And, you know, we're letting it slowly percolate and build and hopefully get it to a place that's going to be satisfying for everybody. He kisses her forehead and assures her that "nothing is awkward between friends". I think there are gestures being made that have definitely advanced from where we were a year ago. Their relationship has evolved, has changed.
They're a little more open with each other and a little more emotionally connected, certainly more than where we were at the beginning of the season. That's not to say we're not headed in the direction everyone would like to go, but I think we're getting there. It's very complicated when two agents who are working together get into a relationship, and that's something that [Tony and Ziva] would be very conscious of.

So I think they would tread lightly, which is why, in theory, we're treading lightly and being very careful about the steps that we take. I look forward to finishing Ziva's story. Show runner Gary Glasberg stated in an interview with EW that: Images that will end up in the archives.
