Enemies Foreign

Series 8 - Episode 8 Enemies Foreign



In this two-part story, first shown in 2010, Ziva’s father – Mossad director Eli David (Michael Nouri) – makes a surprise visit to the US to attend the NCIS conference. Ziva (Cote de Pablo) obviously resents him (he did abandon her in the desert, which is poor parenting by anyone’s standards) but the team have been tasked with his protection, so she must put personal feelings aside.

For a mid-season episode, this has more of a finale feel, with a heart-stopping gunfire scene and a cliff-hanger ending.


Part one of two. Ziva confronts her past when the team is ordered to protect her father, Mossad director Eli David, at a gathering of former heads of NCIS. The agents discover he is being targeted by terrorists who have hijacked a shipment of advanced weapons from the army. Drama, guest starring TJ Ramini and Michael Nouri, with Cote de Pablo and Michael Weatherly.
