NCIS season 17: How Cote de Pablo feels about Ziva, Tony reunion

Cote de PabloThere is no guarantee that a Ziva – Tony reunion is going to happen at some point during NCIS season 17. Yet, the expectations are clearly there. We know that the December 17 episode “The North Pole” is going to feature Cote de Pablo’s character doing the one last thing she needs to before reuniting with her family. Through that, it feels reasonable to think that come January 7 (which is also set to feature Cote), said reunion could happen.

Yet … it’s hard to necessarily guarantee anything at the moment, and for a number of different reasons. Take, for example, the fact that Michael Weatherly’s status remains very much unclear. Is there interest there from him and Cote both? Absolutely, based on what she had to say in a new interview with publication Programme-tv.net:

Michael and I have always dreamed about possibly getting these characters back … I think his schedule is pretty packed, but we have never said no to the possibility and I think we’re both open to it, when the time is right.

Like Cote noted, the biggest issue remains still Weatherly’s schedule, especially since this is around the time he would’ve had to go out to Los Angeles and film something. If it happens … of course, the producers are going to keep it a secret. We imagine the same sort of skeleton-crew environment that we saw back when Cote appeared on set for the first time at the end of last season. We don’t think that we will see Tony for some long period of time, but it does feel like the perfect culmination of the Ziva storyline for this season.

So is there another time to make something happen? If we don’t see the reunion in early January, the next-best time could be in the 400th episode later this spring. What better way to ensure that this occasion is properly noted? It’s a chance to embrace this show and its history like never before.
