Kimble, using the name Carl Baker, lives in an unidentified "big city," and works as the "super" (handyman, janitor, etc.) of a small complex of urban apartments. One of the apartments is occupied by the Roland family, consisting of an older man, Edward Roland (actor Eduard Franz), and his two young adult children, Liz Roland (actress Madlyn Rhue) and Roger Roland (actor Robert Drivas). Edward is obsessed with the ancient family history, and their descent from William the Conquerer and other royalty. Liz has a crush on Kimble. Roger is an emotionally troubled young man.

Millie (actress Judee Morton) is an attractive young resident who taunts Roger and spurns his interest in her. Roger is playing chess with Kimble in Kimble's apartment when Kimble is called away to fix a light for Mrs. Murdock (actress Ellen Corby, who later played Grandma Walton on The Waltons), a widow. Roger steals Kimble's key to Millie's apartment and goes there to make his move. He ends up killing her, under circumstances that lead police, including Lt. Sloan (actor Richard Anderson), to believe the killer might have been Kimble. Millie is killed by a blow to the head with a heavy object, just like Mrs. Kimble, and Roger hides the murder weapon in Kimble's apartment. Lt. Gerard reads of the killing and rushes to the scene, hoping to catch Kimble.
