‘NCIS’ season 11 spoilers: Cote de Pablo’s Ziva absent from premiere synopsis

The latest -While we have heard that the second episode of “NCIS” season 11, and her final one of the show, is going to be a little bit heavier in the way of details about Cote de Pablo’s Ziva, we are still somewhat surprised to see that CBS is not even mentioning the character in the official synopsis from the premiere. This episode is one that has kept everyone eagerly waiting for some news for a while, but it seems as though most of the focus (at least on the surface) will be more about Gibbs, DiNozzo, and McGee, as they try to unravel everything that we saw in the flash-forward at the end of last season.

In case you have not heard, this episode is entitled “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” and will air on Tuesday, September 24:

“An explosion at a D.C. event that results in a casualty connected to the agency changes Parsons’ perspective on Gibbs and the NCIS team. Meanwhile, without badges, DiNozzo and McGee investigate the case as civilians, despite the case’s dangerous ties to each of them”

Now, we should note first of all that Cote’s name is still listed on the CBS press release for the episode (along with returning guest star Colin Hanks), and so we are assuming Ziva as a part of the story. Our assumption is that in order to get to the point where we understand just why she could be leaving the team, we have some other things to get through first. This will probably be what the premiere episode is ultimately about.
