Santa Clarita, California - The special agent's sudden unexplained Season 11 disappearance into the anonymous Israeli/Jordanian hinterland was inevitable once the baby bump began to bulge.
Now, according to exclusive insider reports based on a Santa Clarita Studios pool man's camcorder footage, the stunning reason behind Ziva's mystery exit can be revealed.
The sloe-eyed ex-Mossad fighting machine had a one night stand with NCIS boss Jethro Gibbs in a blast of carnal passion that blew both their minds.
Over a dozen scenes of the torrid night's tryst were filmed at the California studios ahead of a proposed Season 12 or 13 reunion episode when Ziva returns to DC and Gibbs discovers he's a Pa once again.
"Yeah, she's called the baby Shannon in honor of Gibbs' first, much loved wife who died so tragically," a spokesperson at celebwatch website LA HagFagSlagMag.con who's seen the camcorder spoilers said this evening.
But actor Michael Weatherly's studio podiatrist hotly denied any such story line, insisting on 'WTF?' when asked to comment on the shocking spoiler.
