NCIS Spoilers: 'Shabbat Shalom' Preview -- Michael Nouri Returns as Ziva's Dad

Find out the upcoming revelations to unravel on the midseason return of NCIS! TV Line dissected the next episode titled "Shabbat Shalom" -- which airs on Tuesday, Jan. 8 on CBS.

First up, "Ziva will reconnect with her dad (played by Michael Nouri)," says showrunner Gary Glasberg. Eli's latest encore will in part tee up "a big sort of turn for Ziva that will happen in the latter part of the season," one that "affects her, affects her relationship with Tony and adds a whole other layer to the puzzle."

Glasberg also promises a "really fun" origin episode that introduces us to 10-year-old Abby and her brother Luca, plus a "terrific" turn by Greg Germann (Ally McBeal) as NCIS Deputy Director Jerome Craig. "Greg brings a sense of humor, a wit and a sarcasm that’s unique and different."
