‘NCIS’ season 10 episode 21 “Berlin” aired April 22, 2013 where Ziva and Tony go to Berlin to try to track down Bodnar for killing Ziva’s father and Vance’s wife.
A Little Misdirection
Musad has one of their operatives killed since they believe him to be in league with Bodnar. To start though we don’t know this, we just know he was killed and they supposedly have pulled strings to have NCIS investigate. Gibbs gets suspicious and it only peaks when he checks on Abby who is starting on the car the officer was killed in. Gibbs asks if Ducky has the body yet, and Abby shows Gibbs the body of the Musad officer in the car’s trunk.
Off to Berlin
Ziva takes Tony with her to Berlin. She believes Bodnar has taken the advice of her father and is exchanging his funds for Diamonds. When funds were taken from his accounts, she noticed an increase in diamond purchases made in Berlin.
In Berlin, her and her Tony meet up with Adam, one of Ziva’s contacts who provides information on who has been purchasing the diamonds for Bodnar and he knows the exchange is going down that night. Bodnar contacts Ziva on her computer, McGee tracks the signal to a subway station nearby but looses the signal when he hops a train.
They track down the man who who purchased the diamonds and where the exchange will take place. Tony and Ziva go in but find it’s Bodnar, just not the Bodnar they are after. His brother is there to pick up the diamonds.
Back in the states, Gibbs and Vance confront the new Director of Musad that she hid key information that Bodnar may still be in the states and never went to Rome. All the key players were working off the same airport pictures, but Musad had pictures of the brothers changing clothes in the bathroom. They also bring up the bogus investigation they sent NCIS on, making sure they followed a false investigation to allow them to remain on US soil while they tried to find Bodnar. Homeland, and NCIS give Musad a pass, but warn this is the only pass they get.
Tony and Ziva pass off Bodnar’s brother to the Marshalls and are on their way back to the office with the diamonds. They are having a touching conversation about Ziva’s father and things that have been happening, what she wants, and how she came to be who she is. The camera takes Tony’s viewpoint as he looks over at Ziva and they share a moment. A moment that doesn’t last as you see a black SUV coming at them and crashes. Then we see Tony’s hand weakly reach for Ziva’s unmoving bloody one. As far as, the many unanswered questions viewers now have, we anxiously await next week’s episode when the team goes out for revenge
