NCIS‘ Agent Tony DiNozzo is due for a major blast from the past, when ex-girlfriend Jeanne Benoit resurfaces during November sweeps.
TVLine can confirm that Scottie Thompson, who created the role of the doctor/arms dealer’s daughter back in Season 4, will return to the CBS drama in November, for the first of what could be multiple episodes.
To say that Tony’s romance with Jeanne was complicated is putting it lightly. Their relationship was positioned as a quite serious one as it unfolded during Season 4, until Jeanne — the daughter of René Benoit aka La Grenouille (“The Frog”) — learned that her beau was an NCIS agent tasked with taking down her dad.
Jeanne broke up with Tony, leaving behind a letter asking him to choose between her and his job. Later, when La Grenouille was murdered, Jeanne (unsuccessfully) tried to pin the kill on Tony. Afterward, she asked if any of what they shared was real, to which he responded, “No.”
Or was it? Regardless, they’ll have things to talk about.
Thompson has been popping up here, there and everywhere as of late, in episodes of Zoo, Grey’s Anatomy, The Blacklist and Castle. Her TV resume also includes arcs on Graceland, Trauma and Brotherhood.
