NCIS First Look: Married Tony! Handcuffed Ziva!

Tuesday’s landmark 200th episode of NCIS puts an "It’s a Wonderful Life" spin on TV’s #1 drama. More specifically, "Life Before His Eyes" is based on the 1998 film Sliding Doors . Whatever parallels you want to make, it's going to be out of this world ... in the literal sense. We're talking alternate realities. Fans are used to single NCIS agents Tony (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva (Cote de Pablo) on the same side of the table and exchanging wisecracks and quasi-flirty remarks. Well, that won't happen Tuesday. Here's a shot of married (!) Tony interrogating a handcuffed Ziva, who’s still a Mossad officer:  //
