Thirty Days NCIS Meme Mark 02. Day #23 - Favourite Ziva episode or moment

I have such fun doing thirty days memes that I decided to create another  NCIS one. Please feel free to snaggle it should you wish to.

Day #23 - Favourite Ziva episode or moment

Not the easiest of choices, but I'm going to go with 'Recoil' from Season 5.

The reason I've gone with this is (to quote my own review from when it aired):

Part of me felt Ziva's behaviour throughout the case, in one aspect was very OOC - after all she's killed before, we've seen her, she even killed her half-brother, so why did this affect her so much?

OTOH, maybe it's the first time she has come so close to being killed herself, and believing that it was her fault as she didn't act quickly enough. Everyone has a breaking point, no matter how detached, experienced, able, trained, etc. they are - so it looks as if this was Ziva's. And it was good to see that, I felt, because it again showed she isn't the cold-hearted, ruthless killer she sometimes (albeit not so much these days) comes across as being.

I enjoyed seeing a different side of Ziva and felt it was well pulled off, interesting and believable.

And it was a jolly good case that kept me guessing throughout.
