Series 3, Episode 6

Zoe is in the firing line when an operation goes badly wrong. An undercover police officer - posing as a gang member in a gun-running scam - is shot dead, leaving a grieving widow and a lot of unanswered questions.

Will and Zoe

With an election on the horizon, the Government is keen to be seen to be clamping down on such activities that suggest the Security Services are above the law. Zoe finds herself as the scapegoat for MI5 and is charged with conspiracy to murder. A tearful and frightened Zoe goes to see ex-fiancé Will, who is still adamant that he didn't tell his brother she was a spy. She admits she's in trouble and pleads with him for comfort. He has no idea of the enormity of the situation, but they are reunited.

Harry and Ruth

In court, it is revealed that Zoe was attempting to infiltrate a Turkish mafiosa gun-running gang. The plan was for her to form a wedge between the boss Celenk and his weak sidekick Ozal using her feminine charms, with the intention of unravelling the scam. But Zoe soon discovered that Celenk was a nasty piece of work and she was genuinely scared. She asked Harry and Adam to be taken off the operation. Request denied.

Barrister and Zoe

Zoe continued to play the two ganglords off against each other. Ozal, fuelled by drink, drugs and sexual jealousy, took the bait to extremes. Encouraged by Zoe's cojoling, he was whipped into a frenzy which resulted in him shooting Celenk and the undercover policeman, even after the latter's true identity was revealed. Zoe, under direction from Harry, lies in court - they were not aware there was an undercover policeman in place and the plan had never included the death of Celenk.

Zoe

But Zoe admits the whole truth to Danny. She had been briefed by Harry and Adam that not only did Celenk have Al-Qaeda connections but that assassination had always been an option - facts she cannot reveal in court. Under pressure and frightened, Zoe had actively encouraged Ozal to pull the trigger on his boss and had made the potential death of Celenk a reality for her own ends. Harry, convinced Zoe will just receive a rap on the knuckles, is horrified when she is found guilty on all charges. A bit of blackmail at Government level and he has secured a 'disappearance' for her. A devastated Danny finds himself persuading Zoe to leave the country, her family, friends and Will, under a new legend. A tearful goodbye and she is gone.
