Yes, Sam's behavior is a puzzlement for me in this ep. It's been set up previously that she wants to do more "spook" work and less tea serving, but spying on a friend is really low, especially given that it's Ruth and she's really not doing anything that's so awfully terrible. It's not like she's selling state secrets or threatening the security of the country. She could have told Ruth that Harry was suspicious of her and to knock it off -- that's what a real friend would have done, imo.

I agree. In past episodes Sam and Ruth have been quite close, chatting etc. Even though Sam is not the brightest of the bunch, she would have known that Ruth was not really doing anything seriously wrong. Why therefore did Harry keep Sam spying on her then? It was Malcolm that got the file out of registry for Ruth which was surely a breach of some rules. Harry could have warned Ruth before she went to the sing along but seemed happy to let Ruth continue on her little adventure. Maybe he was confident that it wouldn't come to anything.
