Standoff: Circling

When Air Traffic Control error is blamed for a plane crash killing 180 people, the controller at fault hijacks the control tower in defense of his innocence. The stakes are high as dozens of planes circle above, but when Matt and Emily learn that the hijacker's wife is having an affair, the negotiators realize that the pressures at work aren't the only issues the hijacker is coping with. The situation hits a little too close to home as Matt and Emily get a glimpse of what could happen when personal lives get in the way of careers, and Emily pushes a hesitant Matt to go public with their relationship.
