On his will they/won't they chemistry with Ziva (Cote de Pablo) -- and how being stuck in an elevator together in the season premiere changes them: "Knowing now what's actually going to be revealed, I like to think that there may be some things we didn't show, other things you may be able to glean, but right from the start, it tees up this relationship in a sliver of light that's very direct and very hard, and it's basically saying, 'Pay attention this year, because I think this is gonna be the year of the Tiva, the Tony/Ziva.' And we've done, now, multiple episodes where there's been stuff going on and I think it all starts in that elevator, and it all starts with them repairing some of the damage that they did to each other over the years."
On what effect the bombing will continue to have on the team going forward: "I think any time you have that near-death experience, it sort of redefines your existence for a while, but then it's amazing how quickly things snap back into the baseline behavior. I think we all get back to baseline pretty quickly, but with some new pieces of information about each other. So we all get back to normal, but we kind of know some different stuff. Ultimately, it becomes clear as we're moving through the season that Gary Glasberg, genius showrunner that he is, has in mind something very specific for the end of the year, and he's moving us all towards that door. And I do think it's the best season ever, because I think there's a concerted effort to stick to a plan. There's something very natural about it that we're getting to that's gonna make this one the one to watch."
