Season 4 for the La Grenouille season-long arc. Gibbs had "retired" to Mexico and the assignment was given to Tony by Director Shepard and she didn't take him off of it when Gibbs "un-retired" and took his job back. We last saw Jeanne in Season 5s "Internal Affairs". Yes, the Leland Spears deal was all "pre-series".

Could be all these IDs were created at the same time. Gibbs worked with both Franks & Jenny as Spears but Miranda Flemming and Edgar Braun never met.
Don't forget, that Tony's undercover persona: Tony DiNardo, Film Professor was brought up too. I LOVED that and that Jeanne Benoit's name was invoked. The Bishop conundrum? Perhaps all of that was one of those "Easter Eggs" that NCIS was once so good at making a come back. I can totally see why she would be concerned and why Gibbs very long cover all those years ago would have all those concerns bubbling over. Could be something coming up later this season - or next. I'm intrigued. That said, she's really green and even after all these years Tim has only done one-off undercover assignments so the chances of her being assigned one are slight -unless, it's not. I loved that Tony called his relationship with Zoe "serious". Hasn't had dinner with parents when he was in a serious relationship before because he doesn't count that dinner with Jeanne's mother (Dr Helen Burkley). I believe McGee has met Delilah's parents - when she was in the hospital after the explosion that paralyzed her. Thoughts:The marriage Gibbs would have been on then seems to be Stephanie - she was the last one before he & Jenny got involved - or did they get involved while undercover during the marriage (to me it was heavily hinted at in "The Ex-File")?Loved Gibbs tuning out Tim's tech heavy lingo and winging it - a true master at undercoverLoved the security guard. "Good morning, sunshine". One of my favorite things about this episode? It was self-contained.
