NCIS (2009): S06E25 – Aliyah


The sixth season of the police procedural drama NCIS was originally broadcast between 23 September 2008 and 19 May 2009.


Despite Ziva’s efforts to help him, Rivkin dies in hospital from his injuries, with Ziva blaming Tony for his death. After Ziva’s apartment is destroyed in an explosion, Gibbs, Vance, DiNozzo and Ziva travel to Israel, having been summoned there at the request of Eli David, the enigmatic head of Mossad and also Ziva’s father. McGee and Abby are in Washington working on the laptop found in the wreckage of Ziva’s home, discovering Ziva had vital intel on their current operation and did not share it with the rest of the team. After Ziva admits that she cannot trust Tony because he killed Rivkin, and with her loyalties torn between Mossad and NCIS, Gibbs decides to leave Ziva in Tel Aviv, where it is later shown that she has once again returned to Mossad and is embarking on a mission to stop a terrorist cell. The episode ends in a cliffhanger when it is shown that Ziva has been captured by the Somalian terrorists that Rivkin had been investigating, and terrorist leader Saleem Ulman is torturing her for information on NCIS.
