Plot summary
26 October 2006 | by ynot-16See all my reviews

This is one of the very best episodes, and has quite a bit of humor alongside the drama. By accident, Kimble appears in the background of a photo taken of a young couple. A series of coincidences brings the photo into the hands of a policeman, who recognizes Kimble.

Lieutenant Gerard comes to town, and has a plan to get Kimble before he knows Gerard is on to him. Kimble is forced to escape on foot. He meets unusual characters, one of whom informs him his face is all over the TV news. He is in one of his most desperate situations as Gerard and the local police box him in.

Things alternately improve and get worse as Kimble comes into contact with a couple of eccentric older men who live together, delightfully played by John McGiver and John Fiedler.
