Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Closing Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble thumbing a truck labeled "Checkerboard Van Lines" and hitching a ride] The storm has come and gone. But few of those who sought shelter together that night will forget it. And Richard Kimble, the next hill in his eye, will find occasions to look back and remember. A Fugitive has time for that.

3/8/66 "Ill Wind"
11 November 2015 | by schappe1See all my reviews

Kimble is back doing migrant farm work. In fact he's made a lot of friends, including John McIntyre and Jeanette Nolan, two of my favorite actors. Gerard has again tracked him down and, in a hauntingly filmed sequence, has trapped him in a train station. He captures his long- time prey but a hurricane forces them to take shelter with the migrants, putting Gerard in a situation similar to the one he faced with the back woods people in "Corner of Hell": they are on Kimble's side, not Gerard's.

Then Gerard gets hurt and Kimble cares for him. Gerard sees this as an attempt to gain his sympathy. The migrants don't understand it at all. What they are missing is that Kimble, as a doctor, has a sense of professional ethics that are just as strong as Gerard's, if more humane. Gerard needs a blood transfusion: are there any volunteers?

The hurricane in this one is done much better than the one in the first season's "Storm Center". They show less but hint at a lot more and it comes off much better. This episode is enhanced by Tim McIntyre, (John and Jeannette's son), playing and singing a ballad called "The Running Man", (why didn't they call the episode that?), throughout with the lyrics being changed as the situation changed. The ballad was written by the show's executive producer, George Eckstein.
