Gerard), and Richard Kimble learns of Johnson's arrest at a trucking firm in Tuscon.

This is part 1 of the 2 part final episode, and does not disappoint. Fred Johnson, the one-armed man, is arrested in Los Angeles for busting up a bar, and the publicity brings Kimble and Gerard to town. Kimble has a hidden ally, Jean Carlisle from Stafford, a court stenographer who often works at police headquarters. He barely escapes a difficult trap with her help.

Gerard questions Johnson and starts to think maybe Kimble is telling the truth. A surprising circumstance leads to Johnson's release, requiring Jean to save Kimble again. But ultimately, Gerard captures his man.
