Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Closing Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble hiding behind a tree as a nearby posse searches for him] A Fugitive gets his fill of good byes, of loyalties born and discarded, and yet not discarded. For the fugitive game is a lonely one, with only two players to see it through. A game, it would seem, without end.

10/11/66 "Ten Thousand Pieces of Silver"
26 January 2016 | by schappe1See all my reviews

June Harding was a wide-eyed, gentle-mannered actress who appeared in two Fugitive episodes essentially playing the same character: a mildly retarded, child-like woman whom Kimble befriends, which causes her to want to share his life, which, is, of course, impossible. Her first appearance was in "Moon Child" from the second season. Here she's on a farm where Kimble has been working as a hand. A killer played by Paul Mantee is on the loose and sheriff's deputies are scouring the area looking for him, not realizing that they have a more famous, convicted, killer in their dragnet. Kimble is driving the family truck when the real murderer hijacks it to avoid the dragnet.

Meanwhile, a newspaper editor back in Stafford who has been a critic of the police department has put up a $10,000 reward for Kimble, so he now has a price on his head. When the locals hear about it, every one of them seems to want it for themselves, thus the title. This episode begins an emphasis on more action sequences. Kimble crashes the truck and almost drowns, in addition to his other problems.
