While many of us had hoped to see Tony and Ziva make a go of their feelings for each other on "NCIS," we were all surprised with the Season 8 finale when her boyfriend Ray hinted at the possibility of marriage. Sure, Tony had E.J., but we all know there's no hope for a future there. Is it possible the tough as nails Ziva David may actually want to marry the somewhat shady CIA agent?
During the Season 8 finale, Ray gave Ziva an empty box that was supposed to represent a box full of possibilities and promises for their relationship. Ziva looked disappointed, and what girl looking at an empty ring box wouldn't. This alone hints that she may have more serious feelings for Ray than we originally thought. While the gesture was sweet, Ray also received a mysterious text right after their sweet scene and off he went on a mission. He promised they would talk about their future more when he returned.
No Sign Of Ray
If you were like me, you expected some type of explanation of what Ray was up to during the first few episodes of Season 9. However, it is like the man has disappeared. Ziva doesn't even talk about him. Tony doesn't tease her or even appear jealous. This story line is far too important for "NCIS" to just let die, so there is something major on the horizon for Ray and Ziva. The question is, what? An even better question at this point is when?
Can He Be Trusted
Ziva and Ray already have trust issues. He didn't fill her in on a case he was working on in the area, which left her feeling as if he didn't trust her. Considering it was her butt on the line at one point because of it, it would have been nice for Ray to let her know what was going on. Either he doesn't trust her or there is more to him than he lets on. Perhaps one of his missions is to get close to Ziva. For what reason, no one could really fathom unless it has to do with the family she left behind to join "NCIS."
Every time Ray appears there is turmoil of some kind. Ziva obviously cares for him, but without complete trust, a relationship simply cannot work. Ziva has her suspicions but is giving Ray a chance to come clean on his own. For her sake, let's hope he does. For Tony's sake, let's hope he turns out to be the big bad guy he seems to be.
