NCIS 10 Finale "Damned if You Do" Review
You know, always switching from the hip holster to the shoulder to the ankle. Changing from the Glock 17 to the 23 and then back again. You know, what's high maintenance about that? I like a certain holster. I like a certain gun. The bullet that killed Midge. It's like way nastier than any standard. It looks pretty standard to me.
Yeah, but look closer. It's covered in mold spores, and old mold, like sixty years, which means it's a very old bullet. Well, my first thought is this assassin from the past.
He stumbles through a tear in the space-time continuum. Or from somebody's old gun. That was my second thought. You've barely spoken since we left, brilliant chatterbox. Not feeling so brilliant, I guess. Well, if it's any consolation, your friend Judy did not seem the least bit spoken for to me either.

Vance was right to yell. I'm off my game. I've lost my focus. It's like half my brain is still stuck in that elevator. The most remarkable thing about him was how unremarkable he was. And whatever the motive for his murder is. Sounds worse when you say it like that.
Tell me you got something, Abs. Gibbs looks at her in bemusement. I don't know where to start. Well, it's just that ever since the "kaboom", you should've been walking around looking like Mr Sourpuss but I know that on the inside you're one of the kindest people I know. So I thought it would be nice if today your outside reflected your inside.
I know what you did for Ducky. It was very, very sweet.
NCIS Season 10 Finale Review: Have Gibbs’ Past Actions Finally Caught Up With Him?
There is evil afoot that must be cast asunder. The fun is over. We can get you out of the bullpen now. I thought I might assist with the paperwork. No, McGee can take care of that. The only place you're going is autopsy.

Back to -- Gibbs: You've been cleared for duty, Duck. Back to -- okay. He further states that he is no longer certain of her loyalty, insisting that she return to Mossad as a full-time operative and complete Rivkin's assignment. They manage to recover various emails and pieces of information that allow them to assemble basic conclusions about the objective of Rivkin's mission and they also discover that Rivkin was in contact with Ziva.
The team is shocked by the turn of events, and Ducky privately expresses his surprise that Gibbs would come to such a decision, saying, "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. Despite knowing that Gibbs doesn't want to hear this, Vance believes that Ziva will serve them well at Mossad. Gibbs, on the other hand disagrees, stating if Vance knows Eli, then they'll probably never see Ziva again. The episode ends in a cliffhanger when in the Cape of Africa, terrorist leader Saleem Ulman Omid Abtahi enters a room and asks a female captive for information on NCIS before revealing the captive is none other than Ziva herself who has been tortured.
Before the finale aired, then executive producer Shane Brennan stated that it would be "jaw-dropping" and "stunning" and that the impact of the episode's events would "send shockwaves" through NCIS. He further elaborated, "We filmed a secret ending, and those pages were only in one copy of the script. People will see the finale and say, 'I know what's going to happen next in the first episode back.
You don't know what's going to happen. People will go, 'Am I really seeing that? I promised that with [the Season 5 finale] 'Judgment Day,' and I think we delivered. It is very much in that vein.
The way I've always approached it is that Rivkin loves Ziva. Part 1 You could hear a pin drop in MTAC — which was quite a feat given that there were at least a dozen people in the room.
Some were bent over terminals, checking data, receiving reports from all over the world. Others were in the room to offer assistance in a case that had caught up 2 teams and was now heading for a deadly conclusion. But whatever their reason for being there, no one was making any pretence about the fact that they were watching the drama unfold around the woman standing in front of the video screen.
McGee didn't know how Director Shepard was staying so calm and in control. She hadn't raised her voice, wasn't pacing or giving any indication that she was anxious. Instead she had kept track of every snippet of information, following the separate threads of the investigation, giving orders, making suggestions. Earlier she had been standing at his shoulder, offering quiet encouragement as he teased the technology at his disposal into co-operation. Perhaps if he knew her better he'd be able to detect the strain he was sure she must be feeling.
But of all the team, he was the one who knew her least. Gibbs had been her partner and, if you believed Tony, perhaps something more; Ducky kept his distance until he forgot and told stories about her exploits as an agent, Tony and Ziva both had their own connection with her and even Abby seemed to get under her skin at times. He was very aware that he'd never really thought about her, except as an authority figure who sometimes had the ability to open doors that had remained stubbornly closed to other approaches.
And suddenly it mattered a great deal that despite all of his knowledge, all the things he could use a computer to find the answer to, he had no idea what decision she would make — and what would inform that decision. It made him feel surprisingly powerless. This lack of knowledge was of more than academic interest; because the Director of NCIS had two teams trapped in an underwater power station, with the clock ticking on its structural integrity.
Of course, the teams weren't in the same part of the building and everything they knew to date indicated there would only be enough time to get one team out before the structure, weakened by several explosions, succumbed to the pressure from the water surrounding it and collapsed.
A specialist unit from the Coast Guard was on site — ready to attempt a rescue mission. The Commander was giving Shepard his recommendations now, but everyone knew that the final decision was hers and that decision, once made, would likely condemn some of her agents to death.
McGee knew should have been down there with Gibbs, Tony and Ziva — not sitting in the safety of MTAC trying to get a better pinpoint on their exact location within the ailing structure. He could hardly stand to think about what he would do if the decision was to send the rescue team to the others first, he wasn't ready to think about losing his family. Director Shepard knew that everyone was watching her, waiting to see what she would do.
But the only person she was interested in right now was the Lt.
