Storyline

Air traffic controller, John Barnes, a respectable family father with an immaculate record, is suspected of causing a mid-air plane crash. He suddenly takes his colleagues in the tower hostage, demanding tapes which should help clear him. Matt negotiates with the remarkably lucid and reasonable man. Gradually becomes clear the key is in John's personal life: neighbor friend Mark aboard the crashed plane, but with a crucial twist. Matt chooses an unorthodox approach. Written by KGF Vissers

Matt Flannery: [to Cheryl] Lehman and I are seeing each other. Still. We figured that since there's no Bureau policy against it, and since we're doing good work according to you, we're gonna give it a go and see what happens.
