Career [edit | Edit source]

NCIS Senior Special Agent DiNozzo is Leroy Jethro Gibbs' deputy and a philanderer who seldom can resist advances to a female colleague or suspect. He has Italian roots, which among other things in the episode A good patriot mentioned. DiNozzo studied on a scholarship at Ohio State University and played for the Ohio State Buckeyes football team there. He also holds a Bachelor of Physical Education degree. He also won several swimming competitions as a child and is also listed in the Guinness Book of Records for having the ability to do heavy work underwater with a single draft. He is a former cop from Baltimore, where he worked on the homicide squad. At the time he was engaged to Wendy Miller. She resolved this on the day before the wedding, as she did not yet feel ready for such an obligation. DiNozzo is an expert in ballistics and crime scene sketching. Tony is also fluent in Spanish.

During the fourth season, his girlfriend Jeanne Benoit (Scottie Thompson) is introduced, who, as it turns out in the season finale, is the daughter of the wanted arms dealer La Grenouille; his relationship with her therefore did not come about by chance: he was put on her by Director Shepard in order to get to La Grenouille. At the beginning of the fifth season he decides against Jeanne and for the NCIS team. After Ziva David joins the team, he only has "superficial feelings" for her at first. Over time, he not only develops friendly, but also romantic feelings, but he doesn't dare to open up to her. In the final episode of the fifth season (Agent at Sea), DiNozzo is transferred to the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76). However, at the end of this episode, he returns to the Washington Field Office.

Relationships [edit | Edit source]

colleagues[Edit | Edit source]

Special Agent Ziva David[Edit | Edit source]

Tony and Ziva relationship

In many ways, Ziva mocks Tony, just as Caitlin Todd used to do. However, some aspects of Ziva's personality intimidate DiNozzo, such as the fact that she sleeps with a gun under her pillow or that she always sneaks up on others unnoticed. Tony and Ziva's relationship is something of a cat and mouse game.

In the third season, Ziva and Tony were sent undercover, while they pretended to be the assassins Sophie and Jean-Paul Rauniere and convincingly played the couple. Even the simulated sex was convincing enough for the FBI agents who watched Tony and Ziva to believe it.

In the fourth season, Ziva's father reveals that he had set a spy on her and that he had monitored her for months. The surveillance shows that Tony has visited Ziva at least once a week for the past 3 months. Eli asks his daughter whether she has become intimate with Anthony, but she still denies the question. In the further course of the fourth season it becomes clear that there is no romantic connection. The reason for Tony's numerous visits, however, remains unclear.

In a later episode of season five, Ziva encourages Tony to speak to and fight for Jeanne Benoit, Tony's ex-girlfriend. Although Ziva initially showed great interest in Tony's frequent disappearance at the time, - at first she was concerned - she thought he might be ill. Even when it became known that Tony was hanging out with his girlfriend, she upset Tony's secrecy.

Season 6 also shows signs of emotion between Ziva and Tony. Before Gibbs, they both admit that they miss the team and each other. Tony has pictures of Ziva (in a bikini) and Abby hanging in his room on the USS Seahawk. The banter (?) Stays the same between them. However, Tony shows astonishing interest in Ziva's vacation in Israel in the episode The wrong witness.

Tony discovers a picture of a man on Ziva's desk without realizing that it is Ziva's Mossad partner. To learn at least one sentence in Ziva's mother tongue, Tony takes a language course.

When Ziva receives a call from another Mossad agent named Michael Rivkin, she hides her colleagues to avoid questions. She also lies to Tony, who reacts curiously and does his own research. It turns out that the man Tony saw in the picture on Ziva's desk is Rivkin, and that he belongs to the Mossad. The question then arises about Ziva's loyalty. The fact that Ziva does not respond to Tony's allusions and only Gibbs responds when he speaks straight to her on this subject puts a strain on Tony and Ziva's relationship. During a fight in Ziva's apartment, Tony shoots Rivkin, who succumbs to serious injuries and dies. As a result, Ziva no longer speaks to Tony and tries to avoid him as much as possible. Rivkin's death triggered a series of events that called Gibbs, DiNozzo, Vance and Ziva to Israel. Ziva, who has still not forgiven Tony and also does not believe that Tony acted out of self-defense, remains in Israel while the others fly back.

In the episode The Joker says Tony, while under the influence of a truth serum, that he cannot live without Ziva, which means that she is very important to him.

Subsequently Like in flight Tony and Ziva are in Paris, where they are on a secret mission. You are supposed to bring a witness to the USA unscathed. Nora, the witness, senses that something is between Tony and Ziva; at first she even thinks the two are a couple. Since Tony and Ziva shared a room, Nora continues to allude to a connection between the two, but Ziva tells her that she slept on the couch. However, when McGee confronts him, Tony claims he slept on the couch. From a conversation between Ziva and Tony, however, we learn in the end that both lied. We will probably never find out what really happened in Paris.

Subsequently For Evan Tony and Ziva discuss weddings. In the end, the building is evacuated because of a bomb warning and the bomb goes off when Ziva and Tony are in the elevator.

In the tenth season, Tony and Ziva are in Berlin looking for a terrorist. The two dance in a club, and Ziva remembers her childhood. At that time she danced with her father Eli, who told her that one day she would dance with the man she deserves. After returning to the United States, the two are in a car accident. Before that, you can see the two sitting in Tony's car, smiling and holding hands - all of this happens a few seconds before a car drives into hers. The entire team resigns at the end of the season.

In season 11, someone tries to kill the entire team. Tony travels to Israel to warn Ziva. After months of searching, he finds her in the house where she was born, where she tells him that she wants to change her life. After this statement, Tony leaves Ziva in Israel and flies back to Washington DC. He gets the chain that Ziva always wears as a present from her.

Subsequently The return Tony witnesses Kate's death; he is deeply shocked and stunned by what happened. Along with the rest of the team, Tony tried to get into the episode The duel (part 1) Coping with Kate's death; he even imagined seeing them. In his imagination, the two argue with each other, and Tony can't help but make some sexual innuendos.
Kate's death changes Tony in many ways, including growing up and growing protective of his friends and colleagues.

Still, the question remains whether Kate and Tony would have become a couple if Kate hadn't died, as one of the episode Kiss of death realizes how important they are to each other. Furthermore, the question of what really happened in the field of the two agents in Paraguay remains open. Also shows the episode What happened if... what would have happened if Kate had survived.
