Mad Men mistress Melinda McGraw has been cast as Diane, one of the three (redheaded) women Gibbs (Mark Harmon) married after his first wife was killed. Fans of the show will recall that after Diane split from Gibbs, she also married his friend and colleague, FBI Agent Tobias Fornell (Joe Spano), who will also return for the episode.

"My last girlfriend didn't work out super well," Dietzen tells TVGuide.com, referring to Agent Michelle Lee (Liza Lapira), the NCIS mole who died after Gibbs (Mark Harmon) shot her in Season 6. "It lasted a while, but every time your girlfriend ends up being a double agent or getting shot by your boss, it's hard to handle for your personal confidence."
Don't worry: Jimmy's new girlfriend isn't going anywhere, and even makes a brief appearance in Tuesday's episode...
