NCIS season 17 photo: Torres and Ziva prepare for a showdown

NCIS season 17 episode 2As we prepare for NCIS season 17 in just under two weeks, there is plenty of good stuff to look forward to – yet, the return of Ziva David has to be at the top of the list. She is a fan favorite character emerging from the rubble and prepared to do battle against everyone standing in her way of getting her life back and protecting her family.

While Ziva may be exceptional at what she does (they don’t call her the ninja for nothing after all), at the same time we recognize that she can’t face this threat alone. That brings us to the image below (via Wilmer Valderrama’s Instagram), one that features Cote de Pablo’s character alongside none other than Nick Torres, someone who knows a thing or two about operating in the shadows. Remember that prior to joining Gibbs and his team, Torres worked in some deep-cover operations. He and Ziva may have more in common than most of the other characters on the show in that regard, though we do wonder if they have so much in common that it could cause the two of them to clash here and there.

There isn’t much evidence out there that Ziva is going to meet either Torres or Bishop in the first episode, as she could be rather isolated in much of it and working solely with Gibbs instead. NCIS is taking its time bringing you these meetings, mostly because it recognizes that it has SO much story to tell. Also, it’s going to have Cote for another couple of episodes (at least – we are of course hoping for more), following the first two.
