Exactly a month before this, Kimble had to deal with a gubernatorial candidate and his disaffected wife. This time it's a senatorial candidate and his disaffected wife. Kimble is driving a truck on a deserted highway when he sees a small plane crash. It's not much of a crash and he's able to pull the two passengers out, none the worse for wear except the man has a broken leg. The man is played by Stephen Hill, six months before he became the first head of the IMF on "Mission Impossible". (This episode moves at the pace of an MI episode but is considerably less convincing.) The woman is his mistress, played by Jessica Walter.

Kimble is able to stabilize the leg and generally patch them up but slips way before he can interviewed by the police. The scene then shifts to the man's house where we find he's running for the Senate, that his wife, (Nancy Wickwire) is a cynical drunk and that his mistress is the wife of his loyal assistant and publicity man, (James Callahan). Callahan decides promoting their rescuer as a hero would be good publicity for the campaign and brings in a reluctant Kimble.

Hill becomes still another self-interested temporary ally of Kimble: he doesn't want him to reveal who was with him in the plane and wants him out of there. Even when he finds out Kimble is a convicted murderer his priorities remain the same. But Hill's wife finds out about Walter and who Kimble is and decides to call the police. Hill argues with her and, from his sickbed, manages to accidentally kill her. (So he's now a wife murderer, himself.) He then decides to frame Kimble for her death, then gets Callahan to go after Kimble with a gun to gain revenge for him.
