Corporal Jason Magida, a Marine convicted for espionage, escapes from a Navy brig, and while claiming that his court-martial for espionage was a frame-up, he takes Admiral Chegwidden hostage inside his office, demanding a new trial. Meanwhile Harm acts as intermediary and, with the help of CIA agent Webb, uncovers new information about the original trial while also keeping a SWAT team from killing Magida.
Secrets contains examples of the following tropes:
- Miscarriage of Justice: The core plot of the epsode revolves around an escaped prisoner trying to prove his innocence.
- Out-of-Character Alert: In "Secrets", Admiral Chegwidden is being held at gunpoint inside his office, and tells Bud over the phone to get him a specific case file. Harm and Mac realize the file the Admiral asked for is about a sailor who held his CO hostage, tipping them off.
