Caitlin "Kate" Todd is a popular character on NCIS despite being on the show for only two seasons. This might account for the several mentions/hints at her character in future episodes after she had died.
A popular trope in fanfiction dealing with Kate is to deny her death, usually by an alternate universe in which she somehow survived the shooting or was in never any danger to begin with (or was switched with a similar looking person to keep Ari from realizing that it wasn't Kate he shot). Other popular storylines is her to appear as a "ghost" or missing scenes from the first two seasons.
- "Kate Todd is not dead", a crossover vid with Rizzoli & Isles showing that Kate hid her identity (and became Maura Isles) and faked her death to protect Gibbs and Tony.
