After being snubbed by local police, a small-time mentalist sees his big break in his crystal ball when he spies Dr. Kimble toiling at a gas station. Instead of just turning in the escapee, Sal Mitchell plans to boost his career by having his beautiful, blonde wife Joan Mitchell lure the physician 200 miles away to Lincoln, Illinois, after predicting where Kimble will be. Joan entices Kimble by claiming that, en route from Chicago to Southern Illinois, she noticed a cruel-looking one-armed man working near a statue of Abraham Lincoln. Kimble gets an urge for going, then Sal breaks his big prophecy on live TV, for maximum coverage.Written by

And I thought all psychics were honorable folks.....
In this installment of "The Fugitive", Richard Kimble has settled into a new identity nicely. However, his relatively quiet life is about to get a lot less quiet now that a traveling psychic has arrived in town. Using all sorts of tricks and deceptions, the guy soon convinces the local police that he does have psychic powers. And, after discovering Kimble's wanted poster and realizing he's in town, the guy decides to capitalize on it and create a huge publicity stunt to convince the public as well that he has ESP. But this plan is complicated and involves the psychic's long-suffering wife's help. Can Kimble realize he's just become a pawn in their plans before it's too late?
I appreciate this episode not just because it's entertaining but shows some of the deception folks like this use to convince the gullible that they are attuned to supernatural forces. Well worth seeing and unique, that's for sure.
