Episode Summary

World's End
Kimble answers a classified ad from Ellie Burnett, the daughter of his former defense attorney. They arrange to meet in Kansas City to discuss the information she received about a one-armed man from a private detective hired by her father. Gerard sees the ad and knows who wrote it because he and Ellie's father were close friends and that Ellie may be in love with Kimble. While Gerard has Ellie investigated, she and Kimble find out that the one-armed man was killed in a fire only a week before. Kimble is devastated, but vows to confirm it. A little later, Ellie's private detective informs her that the one-armed man who died in a fire was actually in prison at the time of Helen Kimble's murder. But Ellie withholds this news from Kimble and convinces him that they should leave the country, realizing that this may be her only chance at a life with him.moreless

      • The character of Ellie Burnett (Suzanne Pleshette) was named by David Janssen himself - Ellie was his real-life wife's name. Oddly enough, Janssen was having an affair with Pleshette.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Opening Narration: Another dreary town, another shabby street. Another weary pause on Richard Kimble's search for the man with one arm, his only real hope for escaping a life of fear. (a shot of Kimble reading the newspapers) No front page. Richard Kimble turns directly to the classified section. Here are the things that really matter. A room. A job. A way to stay alive. But tonight, something else: "Personal to R.K. Have information regarding September 17th. Phone me at home. Urgent. E.B. September 17th was the night Richard Kimble's wife was murdered.

      • Closing Narration: Where will Richard Kimble go? Wherever the bus is going. Wherever the Fates will take him. Wherever there is hope of finding the one-armed man. And now, once again, there is that hope.
