The Season 16 finale of NCIS ended with a plot twist that still has fans reeling. Agent Ziva David, whom everyone thought was dead, turned up in Agent Gibbs’ basement alive and well. But she didn't come for pleasantries. She came bearing bad news, telling him that his life is in danger. 

Fast forward to Season's 17's premiere, "Out of the Darkness," and we now see that both Ziva and Gibbs are on the run after narrowly escaping a bunch of bullets. They're hiding from a vengeful woman named Zahar. But even now, fans are still brimming with questions.
