Episode Summary

When Mathew suggests doing a story on the legendary hijacker D.B. Cooper, both Jimmy and Dave are against it. However, when Jimmy is suddenly arrested and charged with the nearly three-decades-old hijacking, one of his managers arrives to oversee the station. Meanwhile, as Beth and Joe make plans to break him out of jail, Lisa's investigation begins to uncover evidence that suggests Jimmy is really D.B. Cooper. As a result, Dave puts Matthew on the story to keep from uncovering evidence that would harm their boss. Upon arriving from his post in Kuala Lampur, Johnny Johnson immediately begins to take charge at WNYX. While Dave is impressed with his ability to charm the staff, Jimmy tells Mathew that he must be fired at once. As Johnny continues to impress, Mathew finally gets around to delivering Jimmy's dire warning. So, as plans for a prison break continue to unfold, Jimmy notes that Johnny is out to take over his entire corporate empire and orders Dave to stop him.moreless
