AN EXIT WITH NO RETURN

The episode in question saw Cote De Pablo's character "Ziva" exit "NCIS." Although the actress left before, she returned in 2019 when season 17 premiered.

Pablo's character needed the team's help with a case, and she got it. The return gave the show's fans hope that the actress would stay on and become a regular, but this exit seemed final; it dashed their hope to pieces.
