NCIS plot hole: Fans uncover obvious Ziva David blunder which changes everything

NCIS has welcomed a huge amount of well-loved characters to the screen over the years, bringing people hailing from all cultures and religions to help Agent Gibbs – however fans have now spotted Ziva David has not been completely consistent with how she lives her life.

NCIS viewers were unhappy last month when they saw the shocking exit of Ziva David (played by Cote de Pablo) after a brief return. Although her return to being a detective was short-lived, she was praised for bringing her much-needed character to the show once again. Despite this, fans have now been pointing out how Ziva has not been completely consistent throughout her time on the show.
As fans know, Ziva is a Jewish character, and has been seen celebrating Jewish holidays on occasion over the 17 seasons.

Because of this, Ziva subscribes to having a kosher diet – meaning she is not supposed to eat certain kinds of meat, or animals.

Now, viewers have begun pointing out Ziva has not exactly adhered to this practice strictly over her time in the show.

This supposed issue was first brought up by Screenrant, who posited that Ziva “sometimes eats kosher, and sometimes she just doesn’t”.


Viewers have also pointed this out, with one viewer writing: “Also I don’t think Ziva kept kosher but WHATEVER.” (sic)

Another fan wrote out the episodes in which Ziva slipped with regards to kosher eating.

They said: “In ‘Ravenous,’ Ziva turns down pigs’ feet because ‘they’re not exactly kosher.’

“But in ‘Kill Ari,’ she eats pepperoni pizza.” (sic)

With this in mind, Ziva has not always been the most devout Jew, and therefore could not be blamed for not adhering to the religious law for her stay on the show.

While Screenrant called this discrepancy “a major flaw in the series’ script”, it may well be down to Ziva’s character.

Could she have made the decision to renounce her kosher practices off-screen, without the viewers seeing it?

Meanwhile, viewers have also spotted a huge flaw in the earlier seasons, as one character who was killed came back to life again.

Viewers will remember Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon) couldn’t prevent the unfortunate death of Tony DiNozzo’s (Michael Weatherly) partner in season eight.

His partner, Danny Price, was played by Scott Grimes, and made a brief appearance on the show as the partner before dying.

However, years later fans of the NCIS franchise spotted Grimes in the show once again.

Except this time, Grimes made an appearance as a brand new character – Special Agent Dave Flynn.
