My wife enjoyed the sibling rivalry between Cait & Tony - moreso than what we're seeing now (Season 3) with Ziva, so that's good to know. And in trying to find the reason the character was killed (thank you very much) without wanting to gleen future spoilers (thanks again) I did happen upon the Bellisario angle and wonder if that is going to be the nail in its coffin for me. As far as why</> Sasha Alexander wanted off the show - any ideas? I greatly enjoyed her participation.

I tried to avoid spoilers... :)

Sasha Alexander wanted of the show because the workload was too heavy for her, basically, and she had a lot of difficulty coping with the physical demands of the action -- essentially just a bad fit between show and actress. There's never been any indication of bad blood between her any anyone else on the show.

Contrary to what might be expected, Bellisario's departure has actually helped the show in terms of what they're doing, and it gave them an opportunity to close out some storylines through the last season. I don't know whether you've come to that point yet, but there's a somewhat amusing (in the end) bit of meta in the series regarding Bellisario's tendency to hire his relatives for his shows -- the character of Chip is played by another of Bellisario's relatives (just as Tim McGee is), but his brief storyline is pretty much the other senior staff screwing with Bellisario.
