What do you think of the season finale? . . . . . . . . . . I think Vance is either in on something with Eli David (He's lied many times and remember the first thing he did as director was to replace a page in his own file and shred the original) or was lied to by the Mossad director. Here are some things that bugged me: 1) The Israeli's could not have missed the laptop when they cut the lines, meaning they either already had/took the info on the laptop (location of the base in Africa) or left it to be "found" (ala Ziva's emails to Rivkin). 2) Vance suddenly claims to have knowledge that Ziva was sent to kill Ari and get on Gibb's good side. There wasn't even a hint of this until now, and the only thing that makes sense is that Eli told him on this last trip. So how would Mossad suddenly know? Ziva likely told Rifvin this when they were sleeping together. 3) Eli said that everything his agents do, are expressely ordered. While Rivkin was tracking down the enemy cell, he was also killing all of them as he went, and was acting as a ghost op (and an unwelcomed one at that) in an official NCIS investigation. 4) Eli wanted Ziva to remain to "finish" what Rivkin started, and it's hinted that Rifkin was trying to get her to go back with him. 5) The Star of David she was wearing at episode end. I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that Mossad do not wear those while on an op/undercover cause... they're sort of a give-a-way. 6) Why was Rivkin so drunk when Tony showed up? So my own theory? That Mossad Director David is playing at a much larger game here, one that requires focusing the terrorist cell's anger at NCIS. This is what Rivkin was doing when he first showed up, and that his relationship with Ziva started out as being ordered. However, as time went by it started to bother him, especially with Ziva, and so he screwed up (by choice or accident?) and killed that one American agent. His continued deteration led her to call on Mossad to extract him, but Tony accidently gave Eli the perfect excuse to get Ziva back in Israel instead. So why did Eli want her back? To give her over to the terrorists so she can provide info for them about NCIS. She'd know a lot about Mossad, yes, but he could have ordered codes, routines, etc. changed already, while she was out of the loop. Remember, this is the guy who got a Palestinian lady pregnant so he could have the perfect double agent.
