After Tuesday’s episode delivered one of the biggest surprises in some time, NCIS season 16 episode 14 is going in a different direction.

In the video below for “Once Upon a Tim,” you can get a pretty good sense of what we’re talking about. After all, it seems as though McGee’s computer is going to be attempting to attack the Department of Defense. What’s going on here? We don’t exactly think that the computer (which seems at least 25 years old) is suddenly going to become some sort of sentient being; instead, it’s probably been tampered with. There’s someone out there who is trying to use some of McGee’s old equipment in order to cause some problems — or possibly even pin things on him.
Does someone have a vendetta against Tim? We think it’s easy to draw that conclusion based on what we’re seeing here, but we also don’t think that this case is anywhere near that simple. This is probably just some evildoer who is taking advantage of what is before them in order to execute their plot. The biggest question to wonder is how they were aware of some of Tim’s equipment in the first place. That’s the biggest piece of evidence that we’ve got that the responsible party is someone from his past.
So what about Ziva?
It was wonderful for NCIS to finally confirm on Tuesday that the character is still out there, and we do think there’s an openness for Cote de Pablo to return provided that the story is right.
However, there’s no sign that “Once Upon a Tim” is going to be that episode. It’s important to remember that this show is a procedural and there aren’t often stories that bleed over from one episode to the next. We do personally think that Bishop’s secret in regards to Ziva will come into play again, but it’d be somewhat of a shock to us if it happens so soon. NCIS doesn’t really operate like that. The promo below does hint at some sort of “surprise,” but it’s not really promoted as something anywhere near as serious as what we had with Ziva during the episode “She.”
