Ducky: 18 different ways...
- Ziva throws a knife to kill the woman about to shoot Ducky, and then subdues two other offenders. (3.4)
- Ziva looks at the burn marks around a bullet wound to a guy’s head, and says that means that a silencer was used. “It was done in haste by someone with little, if any, experience. If a professional did this, he would have not left his weapon. It’s untidy. Marks of an amateur. If it were me, I would have not been so obvious. There are literally dozens of effective ways to eliminate a target without raising suspicions. Heroin overdose is popular, but it requires a history of prior use. Of course something like insulin or potassium can be used to suggest death by natural causes.” Ducky stares at her for a moment, and then genuinely says, “I really must ask you over for dinner. Mother would love to talk with you.” (3.7)
- Ducky thinks that killing the witness would be far beyond Ziva’s character. He says that there’s no sign on the body of a physical altercation, but Gibbs points out, “With her training, there wouldn’t be.” (3.22)
