Masterpiece Episode: "Zen: Cabal"

Season 41, Episode 19
Episode Synopsis: "Cabal." Zen investigates the death of a disgraced aristocrat who either jumped off a bridge or was pushed---possibly because of his plan to reveal the existence of a shadowy organization called the Cabal---while balancing the demands of superiors. A Justice Ministry official wants a suicide ruling, but a female prosecutor believes it should be classified a murder. At the same time, Zen deals with the prosecutor's advances and, like Tania, has difficulties putting his failed marriage to rest.
