Ziva surprises Gibbs with a cryptic warning, prompting him to question why she remained underground for years while being presumed dead by her family and her former NCIS colleagues.
It's revealed that Ziva's landlord, Odette and Adam Eshel were aware of Ziva's survival and have been secretly helping her.
It is also revealed that, contrary to what they had initiallybelieved, the destruction of the David Farmhouse had been done with the intent of targeting Ziva herself, not just the David files.
Odette reveals that Ziva was the real target on the attack on the farmhouse, set by Sahar, the woman who has been hunting her and trying to kill her for reasons unknown other than it somehow relating to Ari Haswari.
McGee, Nick, Jimmy, Leon and Jack find out Ziva is alive and learn about Bishop's knowledge on her survival, including her withholding the information.
Ziva has developed anxiety issues due to her hunt for Sahar and also from being separated from her daughter and Tony.
