  • Episode Description
  • Gary Keller, a promising art student, tests his new rifle by firing a random shot which instantly kills his mentor, the town minister, who happens to be driving on a road right in the line of fire. Kimble happens to be in the car after the minister gives a ride to the hitchhiking fugitive. The car crashes and Kimble hobbles away to attend to his injuries. A guilt ridden Gary wants to confess, but his father, Steve, refuses to let him do so and destroy his promising career. The police arrive on the scene and after spotting Kimble, they think he is the killer and notify Gerard whom arrives in town to track him down. Meanwhile, Steve decides to take matters into his own hands by finding Kimble and hiding him so he does not implicate his son.moreless

    • Opening Narration: For many men, life is a ceaseless flight: each moment of each day must be escaped by fleeing somehow, somewhere, without rest, until one day, all hope dies, even the hope of further flight. Perhaps for such men, death comes as a final and all obliterating act of kindness: after a lifetime of nightmarish flight, an eternity of dreamless rest. But for Richard Kimble, there is no rest. Not free to live, he is also denied the freedom of death.

    • Closing Narration: For Richard Kimble, the truth that will free him lies somewhere ahead, over the next horizon, beyond the next town, in another place, at another time.
