When Cote de Pablo Left ‘NCIS’ the Second Time, She Virtually Disappeared

Cote de Pablo delighted NCIS fans when she suddenly returned in the closing minutes of the season 16 finale. As fan-favorite Ziva David, she returned as a recurring character in season 17 for four episodes and retconned her supposed off-screen death of her. De Pablo’s return of her, however, was brief. and since she left NCIS the second time, she’s virtually disappeared.
