Storyline

Shortly after sunrise a farmer on a tractor in West Virginia sees an unattended intact USMC Cobra helicopter inside a crop circle on his land. The bird took off at 23:00 the previous night from the Marine Corps Air Station, New River, North Carolina. While Gibbs and company investigate the site, a smoldering burned-down cabin turns up nearby; Abby remotely suspects that someone died inside the shack; cadaver dogs find a charred body elsewhere. Local citizens give evasive, deceptive, and uncooperative answers, and a state trooper gives some insight. The team find the two pilots in two different places, and they solve both the disappearance and the related murder. Written by DocRushing

Agent Timothy McGee: Actually, it's more like the Stockholm Syndrome. The emotional attachment to a captor formed by a hostage as a result of continuous stress and a need to cooperate for survival.
