Does Rufus know?

I don't know if Rufus knew back when Cissnei first left Shinra, but I'm sure Tseng told him when they were discussing this plan to send Rude and Vandal undercover.

Though now I really want to see her meet up with Zack again, as the last time they met up she was trying very hard not to follow orders reguarding him.

Yes, it'll probably be a very interesting meeting. ^_-

That also raises the question of just how close they were, as it takes alot for someone to risk their life (As if Tseng hadn't backed her up, she might have been taking a long walk off the top of the ShinRa building)) over what their employer had done to a friend.

To be honest, I really don't think Cissnei and Zack were that close. They were certainly friendly and respect each other, but I think that both of them were well aware that they were not exactly on the same side (i.e., they have different loyalties). So while they'd certainly go out of the way to help each other if they can, I wouldn't really say that they were emotionally (or romantically) close or intimate in any way.

In CC, it seemed there was a bit of underlying tension between the two girls, mostly over Zack. So I was wondering what Cissnei's reaction to Zack being alive again, and if Aeris was ok with whatever the reaction had been.

For one thing, I don't think you can really say that there's tension -between- the two girls because that implies that Cissnei and Aerith knew about each other's feelings for Zack and were knowingly in competition over him. While Cissnei may be slightly jealous over Zack's obvious interest in and feelings for Aerith, there's no evidence to indicate that Aerith was aware that Zack was friendly with Cissnei.

And while I'm sure Cissnei will be happy to know that Zack is now alive, you have to remember that she's a very controlled and cool-headed sort of person. I simply don't see her gushing over Zack like a silly teenager or blatantly displaying a crush on him, especially when it's quite clear to any remotely observant person how committed he is to Aerith. So no, I really can't see Cissnei getting to any sort of 'catfight' with Aerith over Zack.

As for Aerith, remember that in Feral-verse, she and Zack were serious lovers (along with Cloud and Sephiroth), not to mention all that time they spent in the Lifestream together. Aerith knows just how loyal Zack is -- he flirts playfully, but he doesn't stray. So even if Cissnei was somehow foolish enough to make a play for Zack, I can see Aerith being amused and perhaps even a little pitying. She'd probably tease Zack mercilessly about it, but I can't see her getting worked up to the point of getting into an serious and/or violent argument with Cissnei over Zack.

To put it bluntly, Cissnei is absolutely, positively no threat to Aerith's relationship to Zack. Zack is Aerith's, and both Aerith and Cissnei are smart enough to know it.
