Elizabeth (Téa Leoni) finds out that Henry (Tim Daly) has been keeping a secret from her in the upcoming episode of "Madam Secretary."
In the episode titled "Global Relief," the synopsis (according to CarterMatt) reveals that Henry will be kicked off the VFF doomsday cult case. After all the hard work he has done, the FBI now wants him to leave the case alone and let it handle everything. The snub will not rest well with Henry, as he was the one who managed to track down the bomb. It was also he who discovered that the cult was planning a second attack. While working on the case, Henry was ambushed and he had several broken bones to prove it.
It remains a mystery, though, why the government wants him off the case. Henry has no wish to tell Elizabeth the truth, but she learns about it anyway.
The promo shows the secretary confronting her husband about something. Elizabeth berates Henry for keeping "that" a secret. She must be pertaining to his current predicament.
In Henry's defense, he probably does not wish to bother his wife, who has been very busy with her work in the State Department. In fact, Elizabeth's newest case will put her in a precarious situation with the president.
