For everyone who have watched “NCIS” since the very beginning, there is something interesting about getting to see characters return who we weren’t sure we would ever see again. Jeanne Benoit (Scottie Thompson) is just one of them. We’re not sure if there is anything romantic coming for her and Tony (isn’t Zoe still around in some form?), but there is some unfinished business here that could be interesting to see resolved after being dormant for so many years.
This also appears to be a story that the show’s executive producer is particularly excited to tell. In speaking about this matter further to TVLine, executive producer Gary Glasberg had the following to say:
“The Jeanne Benoit storyline is rooted deep in NCIS history … Bringing Scottie Thompson back in Season 13 creates all kinds of opportunities for our characters. We are so excited to welcome her back into our family and promise the fans some genuine surprises.”
At this point, the main thing that we’re excited to see with this storyline is a sense of nostalgia and continuity, and a chance to see even more great guest stars down the line. We’d ultimately like to see even more of this take place over the next couple of years, since all shows are finite, and you have to start looking towards the end of the road. We don’t think that season 13 will be the show’s last, but who knows how many more there will be beyond it?
