NCIS Season 12 spoilers currently exclude a special appearance by Cote de Pablo's Ziva David; but when TV director Dennis Smith and writer Jesse Stern brought up a "Truth or Consequences" follow-up in a #TivaCamp2014 shout-out on Twitter, TiVa fans were thrilled. Meanwhile, the titles of the first two episodes, as well as the centre of the third episode, have been revealed.

"Just talking about "Truth or Consequences" with Mr.Weatherly and Mr. Stern the other night over a nice bottle of wine," NCIS director Dennis Smith said on Twitter, sparking again hopes for a Cote de Pablo and Ziva David visit in NCIS Season 12.
Mr Weatherly is presumed to be Tony DiNozzo himself, Michael Weatherly. Mr Stern, who also tweeted about the same topic, used #TivaCamp2014 in his shout-out, asking Tiva fans for their opinion. The replies he's drawn is a glimpse of fans hoping for some NCIS Season 12 moments with Tiva.
"Hi #TivaCamp2014 been thinking a little bit about a follow up to Truth or Consequences lately. Think that'd be fun?" tweeted Jesse Stern, who wrote NCIS Season 7, Episode 1, titled "Truth or Consequences."
(In NCIS Season 7, Episode 1, Tony gets tortured for Ziva, McGee shows steely determination to save Ziva, and Gibbs kills Ziva's captor with his excellent sniper skills.)
Fans have learned earlier that Gibbs and McGee (Sean Murray) find themselves in Russia when NCIS Season 12 starts this fall. Alex Veadov joins the cast in a recurring role. (Read the spoilers here and join the interesting discussion in the comments section, too.)
In other NCIS Season 12 spoilers released earlier, Tony DiNozzo is going to meet someone new. Many Tiva fans are hoping for Tony to at least have a more definite closure with Ziva David before this new lovelife blossom completely.
Other NCIS fans, meanwhile, have simply had enough of the TiVa arc. For them, Cote de Pablo the actress has moved on, and Ziva David the character is no longer coming back to NCIS. Smith's and Stern's tweets, however, fuel the Tiva fans' hope for at least one TiVa moment in NCIS Season 12.
NCIS Season 12, Episode 1 is titled "20 Clicks," according to a TVLine scoop. Episode 2 is called "Kill the Messenger," director Smith revealed. Episode 3, title still unknown, is going to be Ducky-centric, says the same TVLine report.
NCIS Season 12 premieres Sept. 23, Tuesday. The air date is displayed on the show's official CBS online page.
