Liverpool City Council The city Cohesion does however nonetheless posits itself as a forward looking model of confidence, solidarity and cohesion. My husband and I both enjoyed the bread. The oversized ambitions, involuted theories, and grandiloquent presentations? Paloma's brother, Alejandro, uses his position in the task force to get the forensic evidence linking Gibbs to the murder using Abby Sciuto 's skills.
Pain at the Afghan embassy. It was revealed that Mr. Pain knew that Javid was innocent and that the only reason he was torturing him was to break Ducky to stop giving prisoners morphine injections.
Pain was then arrested and turned over to the Afghan government for trial. However, Ducky claimed that he would not be forgiven for the act by others or by himself. He then joined NCIS in Although most of his time is spent in autopsy and attending crime scenes, he is sent on an important undercover mission in " Blowback ".
Ducky has a "second talent", as Gibbs calls it, to be able to read people, which he expands in season four by studying psychology. In cases without actual bodies, he assists by using his psychological training to decipher the clues left by the perpetrators and establish modus operandi and motive.
Until season six, Ducky lives with his aging mother and her corgis. Nina Foch , who played Ducky's mother, died in In " Broken Bird ", Ducky reveals that his mother has moved out and has Alzheimer's disease.
Her headstone indicates she lived — Later, Gibbs pays him a condolence call in the autopsy room, but Ducky seems relieved at her death probably as she was no longer suffering from Alzheimer's , grateful to have been her son and proud that she almost lived to the age of In season nine, " Playing with Fire ", it is revealed that Ducky has inherited a lot of money from his mother's estate. Gibbs is the first person he reveals this to.
In the episode "Spinning Wheel", Ducky is revealed to have a half-brother, Nicholas, who is 20 years his junior; his father Joseph and his ex-stepmother, Lorraine, are also introduced in that episode. Ducky drives a Morgan that he restored himself. There is a running gag in which Ducky and his assistant first Gerald and then Jimmy frequently get lost or meet a mishap when driving to the crime scene. According to Jimmy, Ducky chased the teens for several blocks and apprehended them and made them clean its windshield.
He asks Gibbs to be the executor of his will. While walking on a beach, Ducky suffers a heart attack in the season nine finale, " Till Death Do Us Part ", after hearing about the bomb blast at NCIS headquarters and then is seen lying motionless.
From this he is seen to push Jimmy into being more confident and to be ready to take his place. In "Twofer", Ducky learns that his alma mater , the University of Edinburgh , wants to present him with an honorary doctor of Humane Letters , which he receives in "Exit Strategy".
Palmer in charge in his absence. Timothy "Tim" McGee Sean Murray first appears in the episode " Sub Rosa " as a case agent stationed at Norfolk, and is promoted to field agent and assigned to Agent Gibbs' team at the end of the season two premiere, " See No Evil ", becoming a regular character.
He serves as a field computer consultant and occasionally assists Abby in the lab. McGee clashes with DiNozzo, though after the two became partners following Ziva's departure from the team at the end of season six , they are frequently shown to form an effective team; however, their relationship has occasionally reverted to its original state upon Ziva's return. McGee's methods are often indecipherable to the other team members, which earns him the pejorative nicknames "McGeek", "McGoo", and "Probie" from DiNozzo along with other derisive nicknames, usually based on his surname ; and "Elf Lord", used by multiple characters due to his elf character in an online role playing computer game.
McGee is also a writer, writing mystery crime novels including a national bestseller, Deep Six: The Continuing Adventures of L. Tibbs , under the pseudonym Thom E. Gemcity an anagram of his name , featuring characters based on his fellow co-workers and others from his everyday life. He drives a silver Porsche Boxster as seen in the episode " Twisted Sister ". He owns a dog, Jethro. Jethro was falsely accused of killing his police handler until Abby proves his innocence, names him and convinces McGee to take him because her landlord won't let her keep the dog herself, despite the dog having attacked him earlier in the episode " Dog Tags ".
Ziva was Ari's control officer and half-sister. Despite initially believing that Ari is innocent, she fatally shoots him when he attempts to kill Gibbs, earning the latter's trust.
At the end of season six, she falls under suspicion as a spy for Mossad. De Pablo describes the character as someone who is "completely different from anyone else on the show" because "she's been around men all her life; she's used to men in authority. She's not afraid of men". I wanted to bring in a character that causes Tony to have to sit back and not quite be able to handle her. And I wanted someone who was more international".
David's specialties with Mossad were espionage , assassination and counter-terrorism and she is highly trained in martial arts. Despite being fluent in English, she sometimes misinterprets idioms and phrases; this is a running joke within the series. Throughout the series, she is accused of driving too fast with passengers though she claims that she was trained to drive quickly to avoid roadside ambushes , leading to McGee and DiNozzo always wanting to drive whenever they are partnered with her.
She is shown to frequently clash with DiNozzo in good-natured arguments. She is very skilled with a knife and is shown teaching her colleagues how to throw one properly. She is the one person Gibbs trusts with any type of firearm in difficult situations.
Throughout her career, she has travelled extensively to countries including Egypt where she met Jenny Shepard , Iraq , the United Kingdom and Morocco. Following Ziva's captivity and torture in a terrorist camp in Somalia , an ordeal that lasts for several months, she resigns from Mossad. Since then, Tony refers to her as with McGee as "Probie".
As of " Rule Fifty-One ", she is a citizen of the United States and able to become a full agent which is made official in season nine's " Nature of the Beast ". David rarely speaks of her personal life. As of season ten, all of her immediate family are deceased. The show rarely mentions her mother, Rivka, who taught her to drive; all that is known is that her mother is deceased and that she does not have the same mother as Ari.
Her younger sister, Tali David, was killed in a Hamas terrorist attack against Israel at the age of sixteen. She also has an Aunt Nettie who likes to play mahjong. Ziva is able to play the piano and is shown to enjoy cooking and reading. She enjoys the fictional drink Berry Mango Madness. She does not own a television but her favorite film is The Sound of Music. In season thirteen, following Ziva's presumed death at the hands of a Trent Kort-hired assassin, it is revealed she and Tony have a child named Tali.
She first appears in the episode "Kill Ari Part I ". She is Gibbs' former partner and lover. When Gibbs asked Jenny to go with him, she refused as she wished to advance her career to exact revenge on the arms dealer who killed her father. Shepard has a close relationship with Ziva David and occasionally provides her with key information on cases without going through regular channels or telling Gibbs, as in the season three episode " Head Case ".
They make it a point to keep these dealings confidential, arguing that "what Gibbs doesn't know can't hurt us". Later in the episode, though, Gibbs' remarks reveals that he already knows about her assistance. The sub-plot comes to a head late in the season when it is revealed that Jenny blames Benoit for her father's death and that Benoit is now central to a major CIA deep-cover operation.
Gibbs confronts Jenny over the operation, suggesting she is letting her emotions rule and has knowingly placed DiNozzo in danger and jeopardized a major CIA operation for the purposes of revenge.
In several episodes during season five, Jenny's failing health becomes a plot issue. For example, in " Stakeout ", Ducky is shown ordering a test on a blood sample and tells Abby it is from a John Doe. Gibbs deduces, correctly, that the only person Ducky would "stick his neck out" for would be the Director. In the next episode, " Dog Tags ", Gibbs questions Jenny about her illness and she says she is fine.
Her exact illness is never revealed; however, in "Stakeout", Abby tells Ducky there is an elevated level of creatine kinase in the blood sample she runs. Mike Franks also discovers Shepard's illness by going through her purse and finding her medication. Shepard is killed in the episode "Judgment Day" Part 1. Franks and Jenny are talking in an abandoned diner when she reveals that she regrets leaving Gibbs and she is still in love with him. It is revealed that she botched an operation ten years prior, when she and Gibbs had been ordered to assassinate a pair of Russian crime lords and lovers.
Gibbs shot the man, but Jenny faced down the woman, Natasha aka Svetlana , and let her live. Natasha sends assassins to kill Jenny in the diner; Jenny kills them all but dies of her injuries. Franks, who is outside at the time of the shooting, returns to Jenny's house where Natasha is trying to kill Gibbs, and Franks shoots her. Gibbs and Franks decide to cover Jenny's mistake and death by burning down her Georgetown mansion.
Jenny's cause of death is reported as "death in home fire". Her loss affects the rest of the characters greatly. Abby regrets that she never told Jenny she was a snappy dresser, and says that would have made her smile. In " Knockout " it is revealed that he was originally from Ohio, but grew up in Chicago where he trained to be a boxer.
His wife states that Vance attended the United States Naval Academy and was commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant in the Marine Corps , but was forced to take a medical discharge before ever serving due to surgery to repair a detached retina suffered during his boxing career. Vance also reveals that it was this friend who decided that Vance should leave Chicago while he stayed behind. Vance says this despite his insistence to Gibbs that his friend was a Marine, though there is no record of his friend's service in the military.
More of Vance's background is revealed in "Enemies Domestic", in season eight. To play the young Vance, Rocky Carroll underwent make-up procedures that he described as "a little instant facelift". He even imagines one himself: Operation Frankenstein, which would later play a big part in the season eight finale. Vance is trained by Sharp and after a six-week training course, leaves for an operation in Amsterdam, codenamed Trident.
NIS believes he is bribing sailors for intelligence. Vance meets Eli David, a promising Mossad agent, who tells him he knows of the operation and that the Russian will kill him.
Later, Eli betrays Vance to the Russian but it is revealed that this is so he can kill him himself. Eli also tells Vance he has been chosen because he is expendable and would not be missed.
Eli and Vance kill the Russian's hit team, but the Russian manages to escape. Eli is unable to find him or who he was. Vance is credited with the elimination of the hit team and he starts to rise swiftly through the ranks at NCIS. It is later revealed that this is McAllister; an expert on Russia, he saw that the Soviet Union's collapse had diverted attention onto the Middle East, and planned to have Vance killed by a Russian operative to show that Russia still posed a major threat, thus setting himself up for the directorship of NCIS.
Then-Assistant Director Vance takes over for Jenny Shepard during her leave of absence between "Internal Affairs" and "Judgment Day", establishing himself as a formidable presence with Gibbs and his team. He scatters Tony, McGee, and Ziva to various departments and assigns Gibbs a new team in the Season 6 premiere " Last Man Standing " upon being named Director; however it is later revealed that he did this to flush out a mole in the agency.
Vance and Gibbs clash during this span, prompting a cold war between them which ends with a détente in " Agent Afloat " at the start of season six. However, the two clash later on as Gibbs feels he cannot fully trust Vance, though he cannot identify a specific reason why.
Vance spearheads the investigation into Shepard's death, and is angered greatly when he is not kept in the loop by Gibbs and Mike Franks, who ultimately manipulate the situation to exonerate Shepard from her past failure, not what Vance had in mind.
Vance also reveals that he knows about the true story of the death of Ari Haswari. After this, the two of them realize that circumstances will prove one of them right. Despite his professional attitude towards Gibbs' team, Vance shows that he does care about them at least once when Alejandro Rivera threatens Abby in " Spider and the Fly ".
He tells Rivera to leave before he gets hurt and when Rivera asks by whom, he replies angrily: Even after the events of "Aliyah", Vance is shown to still be in official contact with Eli David in his capacity as director of Mossad.
This is shown when he receives a text message on his phone from Eli which says only: Vance also refuses to discuss a phone call from Eli with Gibbs, despite knowing how dangerous Eli is, and despite his precarious relationship with Gibbs and his team.
Upon being promoted to the director's position at the end of season five, Vance immediately goes to former Director Shepard's office, and is seen to shred a single mysterious document from his own personnel file. It is revealed in season six "Semper Fidelis" that the document was written by his supervising agent at the time. The Secretary of the Navy tells Gibbs that the file is a fabrication and that he thought all copies had been destroyed.
It is further revealed in the season eight episode, " Enemies Domestic ",  that the head of the San Diego field office, when Vance was assigned there, had begun creating a legend for Vance that incorporated fictitious information about Vance in order to backstop a deep cover assignment, including the false information that Vance had been a pilot and director of a field office.
In the season 10 premiere, " Extreme Prejudice ", it is revealed that he survived relatively unscathed. In the season 10 episode " Shabbat Shalom ", Vance is widowed when his wife Jackie is shot and dies in surgery. Eli David also dies in the episode. In the Season 11 episode " Homesick ", Jackie's estranged biological father Lamar Addison shows up at the family home, much to Vance's displeasure. It is revealed that he walked out on Jackie and her mother and brother when she was young and that he was never married to her mother.
Vance and Jackie have two children: Vance met his wife while attending a University of Maryland basketball game while Len Bias was playing.
Gibbs is particularly empathetic to Vance after his wife's murder and his recovery from a serious injury since Gibbs himself has been through a similar experience. In that episode, Secretary Porter mentions that he has been the Director of NCIS for longer than his last two predecessors combined at that point, just over 7 years.
James "Jimmy" Palmer Brian Dietzen is an assistant medical examiner who first appears in the episode " Split Decision ". After Gerald Jackson is incapacitated, Palmer becomes Mallard's assistant.
He self-identifies as a sufferer of a "mild" case of diabetes mellitus in the episode " In The Dark ". He often seems intimidated by Gibbs, especially when he goes into one of his trademark strange rambling explanations of something that has not been requested. Part of the reason that Dr. Mallard and he are often not at the crime scene until well after Gibbs and his team arrive is related to Dr. Mallard's emphasis on Jimmy being a horrible driver and always getting lost, although Jimmy tries to defend himself by pointing out that Ducky is the one with the map.
He was named after former Baltimore Orioles pitcher Jim Palmer ,  but does not like baseball. Jimmy is the central character of the episode " About Face " where he must recover his memory to find a suspect to a murder case and his attempted killer. Like Ducky, Palmer speaks to the dead, though he is far more irreverent, sometimes raising not only eyebrows but doubts about his analytic abilities in the process.
Some episodes depict an ongoing illicit office romance between Jimmy and Michelle Lee. They make excuses for working late and are seen entering and exiting the underside of the autopsy table.
In the episode " Last Man Standing ", Palmer admits to Gibbs and Vance that he and Agent Lee had been "doing it" for a while, but he had broken it off because he felt "used" - an important bit of information about Lee's character, as a bit of dramatic irony reveals at the end of the same episode. In " The Good Wives Club ", it is revealed that Jimmy is claustrophobic; when he is entering the enclosed hallway he is seen sweating profusely and when he has to go get the body bag he freaks out about having to go back through it.
In " About Face ", as Jimmy is being hypnotized by Abby, it seems that Jimmy has a shoe fetish, as he dreamily talks in detail about Ziva and Abby's footwear instead of recalling information about the current case. The episode also indicates that his mother's name is Eunice. In the episode " Bounce " we see that Palmer regularly helps Tony when he is in charge, despite the fact that Tony has frequently mocked Palmer by calling him an "autopsy gremlin"; yet since DiNozzo mocks just about everyone in the series, this is unsurprising.
Palmer is also shown to have severe tinnitus. Season seven reveals that Jimmy is in love with a girl named Breena Slater, who is employed as an mortician and appears in the episode " Mother's Day ". Barrett congratulates Jimmy on his engagement, and in the season nine premiere " Nature of the Beast ", Ziva says that they are getting married next spring.
Ed alternates between grating on the nerves of the entire team and mocking Palmer's career choice. Most of the team either ignore Ed or quietly tolerate his rudeness out of respect for Palmer and his guest. Palmer eventually tires of Ed's behavior, telling him to sit down and shut up. The end of the episode shows Ed accepting Palmer and expressing a desire for a grandchild. In episode " Damned If You Do ", Jimmy tells Ducky that he and Breena are on a waiting list for adoption, seeing as how there are so many children without parents.
In the season 11 episode, "The Admiral's Daughter" it is revealed to Jimmy through a word game that Breena is pregnant. During his first few seasons, Jimmy is portrayed as a geek with a tendency to ramble or speak out of turn, much to the irritation of Gibbs and even Ducky on occasions. When he first starts, as with most "newbies", he is subjected to some teasing by DiNozzo. By season ten, he is shown as more of a surrogate son to Ducky rather than simply his assistant though this relationship has been implied throughout the series.
In the season fourteen episode "Keep Going", Jimmy confesses to a victim's son that he is now a qualified doctor, having passed his Medical Examiner test on the third time; he had failed it twice before , but doesn't want the rest of the team to know. However, everyone finds out because he was speaking in front of a mic, and Ducky congratulates him. Bishop is a " country girl" from Oklahoma and has three older brothers.
She has a love of food, and is often shown eating snacks at her desk. She also tends to associate specific memories with whatever food she was eating at the time.
Gibbs later offers her a probationary position as a Special Agent in "Monsters and Men", affectionately referring to her as "probie" for the first time. After that, DiNozzo and McGee are seen pulling the seniority card by ordering her around to do more menial tasks, such as evidence collection. Bishop is repeatedly shown as a bit of a perfectionist, sometimes asking for second tries, knowing she can do better the next time around.
Alex Quinn has remarked that she is too tightly wound. When first introduced, DiNozzo and McGee quickly notice her wedding band , but she remains coy when asked about her marital status.
They met during their first week at NSA, though during season thirteen they appear to be having marital difficulties. Bishop is horrified and the two separate, with Bishop going home to Oklahoma to get some distance. Despite him wanting to make things work, she has already decided to file for divorce. She sees Gibbs as a father figure and leans on him. After her divorce she prefers to stay single for a while.
Unfortunately, the relationship ends abruptly when Qasim dies from injuries sustained in an attack by a criminal that the NCIS team have been tracking, leaving Bishop grief-stricken and hellbent on exacting revenge for Qasim's murder. Quinn is extremely concerned about her wellbeing, especially as she eavesdrops on her asking MI6 officer Clayton Reeves to translate the files Qasim was assigned to assist the case.
It is revealed that Qasim proposed to Bishop a few weeks before he died. She asked him for some time to think, and he agreed. Bishop planned to accept the night he died, but never had the chance. While Gibbs and McGee were held prisoner in Paraguay between seasons 14 and 15 , Bishop, as the ranking agent, served as Special Agent-in-Charge of the Major Case Response Team; she retained command until Gibbs was medically and psychologically cleared for duty.
Both of them find that they enjoy the experience and develop a mutual lingering attraction towards each other. Nicholas "Nick" Torres Wilmer Valderrama is an undercover agent who first appears in the season 14 premiere, "Rogue". Nick has been an NCIS deep cover agent for years, but when his cover is blown and he learns his sister's life could be in danger, he races back to DC in an ill-fated attempt to stop it. His mission crosses over with that of Gibbs' team.
However, after working with them to bring down his sister's attackers, he is offered a spot on the team with Alex Quinn. Nick often has trouble readjusting to a normal life and working with a team; he is thus reluctant to wear the NCIS windbreaker or cap when visiting crime scenes. Being undercover for so long has given him a range of skills such as close combat training, but his methods are a bit unpredictable: Nick is also not afraid to break rules if he needs to, which on occasion has him butting heads with Gibbs.
He is very charismatic, has a sense of humor and is very adept in social situations; he once got a suspect to talk by offering her a candy bar. He has a picture of himself on his desk as a reminder of a woman he loved but lost to cancer as a teenager. Torres is superstitious of anything relating to the dead; once forgoing an apartment where the resident had recently died and proclaiming he could never work in a cemetery because of this. He also strikes up a friendly rivalry with Clayton Reeves, and they both try to one-up each other—from undercover tactics to arm-wrestling contests.
In the episode "High Tide", Torres and Ellie Bishop go on an undercover mission, which revolves around them both acting like a couple. Before that she was a field agent, but after her partner was killed in an ambush while the two were following suspects, and her engagement to Mike fell apart, she left the field.
Quinn met Gibbs when he was a part of the team investigating her partner's death. She has a sister in her twenties and a mother who is later revealed to be developing Alzheimer's. She is described as having "sharp wit, quick mind and immense talent as a federal agent".
Quinn prides herself on remembering every agent she's ever trained, including McGee, Bishop, and Torres. Quinn leaves the team at the end of Season 14 to take care of her ailing mother. He first appears in season 13, and returns as a main character for season Because his desk is behind the bullpen of the team, a running gag is he tends to pop up unexpectedly with information in regards to the case at hand. After a botched undercover job to capture the terrorist Chen, he secretly works with Bishop to find a lead on him and arrest him, despite Gibbs ordering them both to stand down.
Reeves has many skills from his career as an MI6 agent and brings those skills to the team when needed, ranging from computer forensics to piloting for his undercover work. While friendly and charming to everyone he meets, he strikes up a rivalry with Torres; both are seasoned undercover agents and generally try to one up each other. During season 15, it's revealed he is a recovering alcoholic as he often drank to cope the stresses of his undercover operations.
His past is unknown, but he lost his mother at a very young age and was homeless. In an effort to honour her and as part of his recovery, Clayton volunteers at a program that helps homeless veterans and their kids. Devastated by his death, Abby leaves NCIS to escort Reeves' body back to London for his funeral and to start a homeless charity in honour of Reeves and his mother. She holds a Ph. Sloane served in Afghanistan, where she was a prisoner of war. The memories of this experience are shown to often have a serious effect on Sloane, but also allow her to connect with people suffering from similar trials.
Vance during season She was originally a Major Case Response Team leader stationed in Rota, Spain , which attracts DiNozzo's attention as he had previously been offered the same position in the season four episode " Singled Out ", though he does not resent her position as he turned the offer down to stay in Washington. Barrett's presence is a source of tension between Gibbs and Director Vance, as Gibbs initially believes Barrett was reassigned to Washington because of budget cuts.
However, in the episode " Two-Faced ", it is revealed that Barrett is stationed in Washington to track a serial killer known as the "Port-to-Port Killer" or P2P for short. When one of the killer's victims is found within the MCRT's jurisdiction, Vance puts together a task force to capture the killer, appointing Barrett as lead investigator. Gibbs begins to suspect Barrett and DiNozzo are in a relationship and dividing the loyalties of the team, and is so distrusting of her that he questions her very motivations for being an NCIS agent, opposing her in everything from interrogating a suspect to profiling the killer.
In the season eight finale, " Pyramid ", it is revealed that E. After being rescued by Gibbs, she is taken hostage by the P2P but is again rescued by Gibbs. Gibbs leaves the door open for her, having finally warmed to her. At the end of season eight, DiNozzo is tasked with dealing with an agent who is selling top-secret information.
In the season nine premiere, " Nature of the Beast ", Tony stops E. However, the captain was murdered and E. They turn to Gibbs for help and E. She meets with her team member Simon Cade in an alley. DiNozzo steps in and wants to arrest Cade, and reveals that he was the agent selling top-secret information. However, Cade knows nothing about it and all three realize that they have been used.
They then get shot, Cade fatally, E. A petty officer she had called for help dies at the hands of an unknown assassin. Gibbs and his team investigate the murder, reuniting them with E. Agah Bayar Tamer Hassan is an international Turkish arms dealer, who first appeared in the season eight episode " Broken Arrow ".
He had a brief appearance in the episode " Kill Screen " and returned in the season nine episode " Need to Know " and the season 12 episode Lost Boys. Gibbs does not like Bayar, as he seems to avoid trouble with federal agencies too easily. S and the main antagonist of season seven. He is hired by an Iraqi tribal leader to capture her daughter and granddaughter from Mike Franks' home in Mexico. Bell sends two of his men to accomplish the mission, but they are killed by Franks' daughter-in-law, Leyla Shakarji.
Franks and his family run away to Gibbs' home in Washington, D. With the help of Damon Werth, a former Marine under Bell's employ, Gibbs traps and arrests Bell before turning them over to the Mexicans for trial. Bell is released with the help of American lawyer Margaret Allison Hart.
He then sends Hart to Washington in a bid to have his revenge against Gibbs. In " Patriot Down ", Hart reveals to Vance that since he got out of prison, Bell had been gathering information on Gibbs and is responsible for uncovering evidence that almost twenty years earlier, Gibbs killed Pedro Hernandez, the drug dealer who murdered Gibbs' wife and daughter in Bell orders his right-hand man, Jason Paul Dean, to kill Special Agent Lara Macy, who has discovered this evidence but subsequently buried it according to " Legend, Part 2 ".
Bell and his men then set out for Mexico to murder Mike Franks and his family, but they are all killed by Dean who is revealed to be working for an unknown party. Gibbs initially believes Bell's body is actually Franks, but Dean confesses to the murder, leaving the fate of Franks and his family unknown until " Rule Fifty-One ". In the same episode, it is revealed that Bell was working for the Reynosa drug cartel.
Paloma Reynosa, daughter of Pedro Hernandez and head of the cartel, plans to use his vendetta against Gibbs to have her revenge for her father's death. She orders Dean to kill him as she no longer needs him. She is an ER resident in Washington, D. In the episode " Angel of Death ", it is revealed that she is the daughter of arms dealer René Benoit and that Director Shepard, during Gibbs' absence at the end of season 3, assigned Tony to an undercover mission to get close to her.
After her father is found dead, an FBI team led by Agent Tobias Fornell investigates Gibbs' team and interrogates Tony based on testimony from Jeanne that he killed him.
She later admits to Shepard that she lied out of anger at Tony for breaking her heart by lying about his identity and his intentions. She leaves the squad room after telling Tony who did not lie about his feelings, despite his undercover deceptions that she wished she had never met him. In the episode " Bounce ", she is mentioned as someone who could possibly have a grudge against Tony and be willing to frame him.
Two doctors go missing, one of whom is Jeanne's husband. She joins Tony and Tim on their mission, where Tony promises that they won't rest until they locate her husband. On their return flight, Jeanne thanks Tony and tells him that she owes him. He responds "No, you don't Months later, in " Loose Cannons ", Tony encounters Jeanne and her husband while investigating a case; she worries about it being connected with her father, which Tony assures her it isn't.
He tries to apologize, as he didn't know, but she says she was beginning to feel whole again until encountering him. Later, after the case is closed, Tony returns to Jeanne's office to find her alone after a fight with her husband regarding her unresolved feelings for Tony. Tony fully apologizes to her and sits down with her, admitting he isn't feeling whole either.
They then have an amicable conversation about both of them wanting to go back in time to fix their relationship, in the hope of a happier ending. However, as they part, they both stand up and have a tense moment where they nearly kiss, but both agree it should not go any further. He is always referred to by his sobriquet , an ethnic slur for the French. He is introduced in the episode " Blowback ".
Director Shepard has been obsessed with bringing him to justice for over ten years because she believes he killed her father and made it look like a suicide. Although he has connections to Iran, the CIA appears to tolerate him as a method of funneling disinformation to Iran as well as maintaining him as a prominent arms dealer so as to keep a degree of control over the arms trade.
According to a psychological profile by Dr. Mallard, even though La Grenouille is a "merchant of death", he is not a violent man by nature, a viewpoint Gibbs later embraces, as he too learns the fact that the arms dealer isn't really dangerous anyway.
Subsequently, the CIA do their best to protect their asset. In " Bury Your Dead ", Benoit asks Director Shepard for protection, claiming someone is trying to kill him and take over his arms business, added to the fact that he no longer trusts the CIA.
Shepard tells him "protect yourself" in true devotion to her father and hands him her gun, although it is later shown that he doesn't take it, as Gibbs is there in the same room to see what really happened that night.
At the end of the episode, he is seen floating in the Washington Channel with a single gunshot to his head from Director Shepard's gun. In the episode " Angel of Death ", it is revealed that La Grenouille is the father of Jeanne Benoit, the woman that DiNozzo falls in love with after seducing her in the course of Director Shepard's undercover investigation, which Shepard later reveals in an apology to the young woman for "crossing the line" in " Internal Affairs ".
Originally from a small town in Ohio and an only child, Borin served a tour of duty in Iraq as a sergeant before presumably retiring from the Marines and joining CGIS where she later rose through the ranks, eventually getting the opportunity to lead her own team. Her most recent appearance was in the season twelve episode, " The San Dominick ". She is similar to Gibbs; both are coffee drinkers, liking it the same way, and workaholics with a strong sense of duty to their jobs.
In " Safe Harbor ", Tony attempts to matchmake the two of them, to no avail, although Borin continues to humor him by returning his wisecracks. The character is also a recurring special guest on the spin-off NCIS: New Orleans , first appearing when she and Special Agent Dwayne Pride's team conduct a joint investigation.
She previously worked with Pride on a joint undercover operation. Prior to the series' start, he was Gibbs' partner and subordinate, but eventually was transferred out as an Agent Afloat, when he was replaced by DiNozzo.
He looks up to Gibbs, and enlists his and his teams' help in tracking down a drug dealer on board the USS Enterprise. Burley knew or at least knew of Mike Franks, and calls Gibbs following his death to express his condolences. Over eight years after his first appearance, Burley returns in the season nine episode " Playing with Fire ", where he leads DiNozzo and David in tracking down and thwarting a terrorist who tries to destroy the carrier USS Benjamin Franklin in Naples, Italy, under the orders of businessman Harper Dearing.
Burley is injured by the terrorist in the process. Nicknamed "Mo", she assisted Gibbs in the episodes "Alleged" and "Viral". Barrett's team who appears in three episodes in season eight and the season nine premiere. In the episode "Swan Song", he is wounded in a shootout with Jonas Cobb, but recovers. Following his recovery, he drops off the grid and is suspected of being a mole. Cade was shot and killed by Jonathan Cole in the season nine premiere "Nature of the Beast".
An expert on Middle Eastern terrorists , she works as an interrogator at Guantanamo Bay. During " Minimum Security ", she is viewed with suspicion by Gibbs as the deceased victim in the episode had letters containing her name. She develops a romantic relationship with DiNozzo and the two seemingly stay in contact, but she breaks it off at the end of " Heart Break " after hearing nothing from him or possibly due to her anger at Gibbs giving her grief.
Following the aftermath of Kate Todd's death, Cassidy temporarily joins Gibbs' team during " Mind Games " and helps in the case of a serial killer as well as tracking down a copycat who is carrying out similar killings. After becoming a team leader and being assigned to the Pentagon , Cassidy's team is killed while investigating a suspected terrorist, and she later joins the team to find out who arranged the phone call and the trap that sent her team to their deaths.
She also has a hostile relationship with Ziva David, pronouncing Ziva's surname wrong to antagonize her, a trait that Abby repeats upon meeting Ziva for the first time. It is later revealed that Ziva has been allowing herself to be the target of Cassidy's anger in order to help her through the ordeal of losing her team. Furthermore, as a result of the bombing, Cassidy is left with psychological scars and begins developing survivor's guilt , believing herself to be the one responsible for unknowingly sending her team into the trap.
Her death leaves Tony grief-stricken and finally gives him the courage he needs to tell Jeanne that he loves her.
Her portrait is later seen in a bar wall honoring officers who have been killed in the line of duty. She first appears in " Check ". She appears in season 11 episode 8 " Alibi ", season 12 episode 8 "Semper Fortis" and season 13 episode 9 "A Day in Court". She has worked with Gibbs and his team on a case, while working for the FBI off screen. Dunne tells Carrie that he has an alibi, in that he was involved in a murder outside of the base at the time of the hit and run, and that somebody else must have stolen his truck.
Due to attorney-client privilege, Carrie cannot tell Gibbs and the team anything about Dunne's crime other than he has a solid alibi.
However, she manages to leave small, subtle clues for the team to follow. Originally recruited into a CIA assassination team code-named Frankenstein, Cobb cracked under intense and inhumane training before escaping.
He re-surfaced in Rota, Spain , where he began his pattern of killing Navy personnel when they made landfall. One body in the episode " Baltimore " resembles P2P's work, but is later found to be a copycat by Dr.
Mallard because of the way the knot is tied. The killer is revealed to be Agent DiNozzo's former superior at Baltimore PD, and the victim is DiNozzo's former partner there, with whom he never got to reconcile. The real P2P, though not known to be Cobb at the time, makes the deception final through a fake Abby Scuito email.
Cobb's modus operandi involves luring his victims into a trap before slashing their throats from behind. He then scrubs the body down with a hospital-grade cleanser before wrapping the bodies in plastic and dumping them in isolated areas. He has been known to dress seamen in the uniforms of officers, and often leaves personal effects of his victims behind frozen in ice that foreshadow his next kill, though his m.
Psychological profiling of Cobb depicts him as methodical, intelligent, and opposed to authority, but not easily distracted by law enforcement. The threat posed by Cobb is deemed so great by Director Vance, that he deliberately changes NCIS policy to antagonize Gibbs in the hopes of setting Gibbs up as a figure Cobb will identify with, in an attempt to lure Cobb into a trap. While Gibbs interrogates him with Agent Barrett watching, he tells a story about the son of a Marine who was told that he had to have his horse put to sleep, which turns out to be a deadly seed planted into Cobb as a child, since the story was about him anyway.
Cobb is killed in the season eight finale, " Pyramid ", where it is revealed that everything he had done since his first kill in Rota has been a part of a larger plan to get revenge on those he holds responsible for Operation Frankenstein—Leon Vance, Trent Kort and the Secretary of the Navy. He is aware that what he does is evil, but maintains that his actions have been for the greater good. He is shot and killed by Gibbs and Vance when he refuses to surrender. In death, he is said to have had a smile on his face while his corpse lay on a wrecked car.
He was formerly a member of "Phantom Eight", a clandestine team of operatives assigned to the Watcher Fleet tasked with protecting the United States Navy. Cole goes rogue some time after the Phantom Eight are disbanded and begins working with Sean Latham, the corrupt Director of Special Operations for the Office of Naval Intelligence and a former member of Phantom Eight himself.
Cole and Latham conspire to sell a series of microchips belonging to Phantom Eight members, which give their owners unrivalled access to the Navy mainframe. DiNozzo, having forgotten the events that led up to the trauma of the shooting, attempts to reconstruct his memories, recounting his investigation of NCIS Agents Simon Cade and E. His investigation centers on a microchip Barrett extracted from the body of Gayne Levin, who also served in Phantom Eight, but wound up the last murder victim of Lt.
Jonas Cobb, the Port-to-Port Killer. Cole manipulates DiNozzo, Barrett, and Cade into first distrusting one another and then meeting, where he attempts to kill all three before fleeing with the microchip.
Cole kills Cade, wounds DiNozzo, and misses Barrett, who flees. He later approaches DiNozzo in the hospital under the Casey Stratton alias, but is unable to kill him as DiNozzo is under guard. Cole reappears in " Housekeeping ", where he attempts to kill E. Barrett, who has since resurfaced.
After the first failed attempt, Latham advises Cole to abandon his mission, but Cole refuses, claiming that he has to see it through, and he murders Latham. The safehouse is empty, and Cole is apprehended. Cole agrees in exchange for a slightly reduced sentence, but Dearing is already aware of his role and rejects his offer of help. Although Cole never offers a reason for his crimes, and the circumstances that led to his becoming a traitor are never detailed, he does admit that he thought he had good reasons for doing what he did; he was soon proven wrong.
First appearing in "Loose Cannons", Grace builds a professional relationship and personal friendship with Gibbs, nicknaming him "Popeye", and often resorting to child psychology including picture charts to tap into his psyche.
Grace returns in "Privileged Information", as Gibbs investigates a patient of hers, a Marine Sergeant, after she ends up in a coma, and tells Gibbs he should treat it as a murder investigation, but cannot divulge further due to doctor-patient confidentiality. When the patient dies, Grace tells Gibbs that the patient was involved in covering up a murder, but that she didn't tell her any details.
Gibbs surprisingly is able to open up to her about his troubles more than she's already known, but McGee skips his appointment with her, frustrating her. Gibbs is able to convince McGee to go to his appointment with Grace, and meets with McGee outside her office after the session, having himself become a more regular patient of Grace.
Craig is promoted to Acting Director following the drive-by shooting of Jackie Vance. It is in this capacity that he helps investigate Ajay Khan "Canary" , though he later steps down from his position in "Hereafter". Craig is a bureaucrat, with little-to-no field experience. She has made four appearances to date, the first being in the season eight episode " A Man Walks Into a Bar In the season nine premiere " Nature of the Beast ", she helps the team piece together the events of Tony's undercover assignment.
Her most recent appearance is in the season eleven " Double Back ", when she psychologically evaluates McGee after a bombing leaves his girlfriend Delilah paralyzed. He was in office from at least during which he made his first appearance until he resigned in during the events of " Pyramid ". David also had a younger daughter, Tali, Ziva's full sister, who is also deceased. Though appearing to be "all business" and uncaring about his children, Eli's reasons for this come from the need to preserve the existence of Israel, a country surrounded by enemy nations.
He and Director Vance have shared a history since a time in Amsterdam when Eli saved his life from the attempts of a Russian hit squad. Towards the end of season six, Eli sends Michael Rivkin to Washington in what Vance describes as a not-so-subtle message that he does not think NCIS are doing their jobs.
During " Semper Fidelis ", Eli is suspected of using Michael Rivkin to spy on the Americans and using the intelligence to locate a terrorist handler and find a training camp located in Somalia. Vance claims that Eli ordered Ziva to kill Ari and gain Gibbs' trust. Later, David demands that Ziva return full-time to Mossad and complete Rivkin's assignment. Ziva thus travels covertly into a Somali terrorist camp to eliminate Saleem Ulman, its leader. After one member of the team is killed and the other two are wounded, their instructions stand, and this leads directly to Ziva's captivity and torture at Saleem's hands.
Afterward, during the episode " Good Cop, Bad Cop ", Eli sends Mossad operative Malachi Ben-Gidon to Washington to discredit Ziva and her account of events that led to her capture prior to " Truth or Consequences ", which prompts her to believe that her father is corrupt: Unfortunately, both he and Jackie, Director Vance's wife, are shot and killed in the Vance home during dinner in a drive-by shooting orchestrated by hawkish anti-peace Mossad personnel headed by Deputy Director Ilan Tohar Bodnar Oded Fehr.
The last we see of Director David is Ziva holding his body while sobbing and praying in her native Hebrew. Harper Dearing Richard Schiff is the primary antagonist during the last episodes of the ninth season. Initially described as "an eccentric businessman whose son was killed in a terrorist bombing",  he appears as a domestic terrorist, out for revenge against the Navy due to the death of his son, Evan, which is revealed in " Up in Smoke ". Samatha Ryan describes Dearing as "a sociopathic, paranoid narcissist".
Robert Wagner is the father of Tony DiNozzo. Described by his son as a "con man", DiNozzo prefers to refer to himself as an entrepreneur.
From season seven, he attempts to rebuild his relationship with his son, from whom he had been previously estranged. The character is shown to be particularly charming. Jones is a probationary agent first introduced in the Season 9 episode " Sins of the Father ". Usually known as "Dorney" to the rest of the team, he is often assigned to the evidence locker against his wishes and desires to become a full field agent.
In " Need to Know ", Gibbs decides that he is ready and hands him his first field assignment. Like McGee during his days as a probie, Dorneget is often the butt of Tony's hazing pranks in Season 10, most notably in the episode " Prime Suspect ". The character does not return for Season 11 but is briefly mentioned in the Season 12 episode " The San Dominick ", when he calls McGee for updates regarding Gibbs and the hostage situation.
In "The Lost Boys", Dorneget is killed in Cairo in a terrorist bomb attack after saving dozens of people at a hotel. He returned in episode four, " Good Cop, Bad Cop ". His third appearance and the last to date is in season seven, episode seven, " Endgame ", although this time it was in person in DC, when Ziva notices that he "cleans up nice".
In the distant past, prior to her appointment to Mossad, Orli had an affair with Eli David that led to the dissolution of his marriage to Rivka David. Though she and Ziva are initially resentful of one another, they reconcile in the season following Ziva's departure from NCIS — and Elbaz is one of the only people she confides in about the paternity of Tali.
During Eshel's first appearance, he assists in the investigation into Ilan Bodnar, working with Tony and Ziva; in the same episode, it is mentioned that he and Ziva spent the night together after her father's funeral. In "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot", Eshel lends his expertise in order to give DiNozzo an insight into Ziva's personal life and current whereabouts. He is mentioned in "Family First", with DiNozzo stating he has asked Eshel about Ziva's current location, but he has not had contact with her in over a year.
In the Season 11 episodes "Kill Chain" and "Double Back", Delilah is left badly injured in a missile attack at a black-tie event she and McGee are attending. While McGee is not seriously injured, Delilah is left permanently paralyzed due to shrapnel embedded in her spine, and she thereafter uses a wheelchair. She continues to assist the NCIS team. After spending almost a year as a senior intelligence analyst in Dubai , Delilah returns in the episode, "Status Update".
When she returns as team leader now based in the US, she and McGee move in together. McGee later buys an engagement ring, with the intent of proposing to Delilah.
When McGee spontaneously proposes to Delilah in the elevator in the episode "Love Boat", she accepts. By the middle of "Something Blue", McGee and Delilah have been planning their July wedding when Delilah collapses due to the stress of wedding planning. While she recovers in hospital, she and McGee find out that she is pregnant. The overall benefits of the project will be realised when the Coal Line is completed.
The nature of the project, and the several sites that make it up, means that it could be delivered in eight stages, as different development sites and the resources they need become available. The Peckham Coal Line is best understood as a network of new public routes and spaces, interwoven both at street level and along elevated decks that connect pockets of neglected space alongside and beneath the existing railway line. These link Peckham Rye with Queens Road, running through areas of different character — from the urban industrial architecture of the Bussey Building and Peckham Levels in the town centre, to open views to the central London skyline between Consort Road and Gordon Road, and nature in the woodland of Kirkwood Nature Reserve.
The Peckham Coal Line vision is ambitious, complex and innovative, which is part of its appeal and its strength, as well as making it challenging to deliver. It can be viewed as a series of individual projects , and although the overall benefits would happen with the delivery of the Coal Line as a whole — and it could potentially be designed, funded and built in a single process — a hybrid approach may be more appropriate.
One of the key drivers of the Peckham Coal Line is the community it will be built by and for, so a vital part of the feasibility study was to incorporate the needs, views and desires of local people.
Events were held in and for people to learn about the project, explore different options and share what they thought about it. Local schoolchildren, businesses and residents showed high levels of interest and involvement, underlining the credibility of the Coal Line, and making sure that the study had significant community-led input. Along the way, the Friends of the Peckham Coal Line formed to encourage continuous community involvement and help push things forward.
Meanwhile, conversations with key stakeholders and decision-makers secured the support of Southwark Council, Network Rail, the Greater London Authority and the Mayor of London. In the project was included in the New Southwark Plan, safeguarding its future in local planning policy.
The Peckham Coal Line will only happen with continuing local support — and there are many ways for you to be part of it: You can keep on supporting the Coal Line. Come along and join in at one of the Friends of the Peckham Coal Line events, where you can find out more. You can share the story and make the Coal Line community grow, so tell your friends and family. You can engage stakeholders like Network Rail , institutions like the Greater London Authority or the Mayor of London and local government to continue their commitment to the project.
These organisations respond to people pressure, so make some noise. You can get directly involved in planning what will happen: But it always needs more help, so please be part of the journey.
