Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble crossing the street of a small town, having just purchased a newspaper from a vendor called "Jake's Local and Out of Town Newspapers."] A man on the run may manage to elude the law but his yesterdays follow him like an ever lengthening shadow. For some, the shadow of the past is an object of fear, but for Richard Kimble, it's a form of security; his memories are a bulwark against helplessness and despair. When the memories falter, so does Kimble.

2/22/66 "Running Scared"
5 November 2015 | by schappe1See all my reviews

Kimble's father has died and his sister Donna, (Jacqueline Scott) isn't taking it well, so Richard arranges a rendezvous in Fort Wayne. But Gerard is all over it. The three of them, (with Donna's husband, this time played by Lin McCarthy: previously James Sikking and later Richard Anderson).

In the middle of it is Mike Ballinger, (the always excellent James Daly), Kimble's prosecutor, who is running for Governor. But Ballinger is paying a price for his run. He keeps taking pills. And he has a wife, (Joanne Linville), with a similar problem to Gerard's in "Landscape With Running Figures". She wants her husband back. She can no longer stand having an obsession as a rival. When her husband recognizes Kimble's sister and figures he must be near and that his capture could put him in the governor's chair, she warns Kimble and helps hide him.

The episode ends with a moving scene between Kimble and his sister who here seems less resolute than in her other appearances, obviously unnerved by the loss of her father while her brother remains on the run. There is no mention of Kimble's troubled brother Ray, who appeared in "Home is the Hunted".
