Proof that if you have high expectations you are often disappointed. Why did Ziva leave NCIS? It doesn't matter, we want more of Cote, but this miniseries wasn't as good as I was expecting. It was still a good story, I'm glad I watched it.

I did not like this serie. I did not get what it actually where about. I will not recommend this to anyone. It jumped too much and between two stories.
