Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of NCIS, we recommend that you do not continue reading as this post could spoil your viewing experience. You’ve been warned!

When NCIS wants to deliver a punch, they really go straight for the gut, don’t they?

We always knew that tonight’s episode — which saw the return of Ziva’s father Eli (Michael Nouri) — would be an emotionally-charged one. (His relationship with his daughter is nothing if not flawed.) But I don’t think anyone could have predicted that he’d be dead by the end of the hour.

Yup, dead.

for more...

Wow, shows have been pulling out all the stops after the break this winter.  None have beaten NCIS from last night.  OMgosh, I had tears tons of tears.  I can't believe how they ended the episode.  Ziva's dad dead...it was just so cute how at the beginning they showed the humor of him saying radio instead of rodeo.  And the fact that Ziva was angry with her dad right before he died.  All of those things she was saying to him while she was holding him.  You couldn't understand what she was saying(well at least I couldn't) but you knew what she was saying.  Wow, I'm crying right now.  Then I really figured Vance's wife would make it thru but to have her die as well.  After they were suppose to just spend the night the two of them.  You know Vance is going to be GUILT ridden.  He now also has two kids to raise on his own.  Watching Gibbs worry in that waiting room.  Wow, I'm just bawling again!!!  Holy crap NCIS!!!

Okay.... Ummm it took me 5 tries to just READ your thread/post and then it took me 4 times to sign in.   I am getting sooooo sick of this mess.

Deep cleansing breaths....

Okay so yes, we watched this last night.   I almost forgot it was Tuesday and that NCIS was new.   So I was a little distracted through the first 30 minutes, but then really paid attention to the 2nd half.   OMG.... I don't think I was as shocked that they killed off Eli as much as I was that they ALSO killed off Vance's wife.   I was surprised that they'd kill 2 people in one episode and it was just SO sad.

I love how realistically they portrayed Vance's relationship with his wife.   When he came home and told her there were guests coming for dinner, her facial expressions were cracking me up and she really got me when she snapped the carrot in half.    I think this is going to give Rocky Carroll a LOT to work with as an actor.

And OMG Ziva's dad..... there is a lot to work with there, too.   So much of this will not just be over with when they get their revenge.  So much of what happened will have residual effects into the future for both Ziva and Vance (and the whole team).

Excellent episode - so well written!   Just watching Gibbs when he was waiting for Vance was nerve wracking and emotional.

I agree the residual effect of what happens is going to last a very long time. It reminds me quite a bit of how Kate died and how that impacted that team for a long period of time. Jenny's death was hard on them for awhile but for not as long as Kate's death and these two deaths will be.
