Early in the episode, Richard Kimble happens upon the hiding place of another fugitive, Joe Tucker (Fritz Weaver). It seems that Joe was convicted of embezzlement and has spent the last four years on the run. However, Joe is very sick and needs Kimble's medical help. Now here are two dilemmas. First, Kimble might expose himself to capture if he stays and helps Joe. Second, if he DOES help Joe and Joe recovers, Joe plans on killing the man he's convinced set him up!! So, reluctantly, Kimble goes into town on his own to get medical supplies...and is promptly picked up by the police. But the police don't know he's Richard Kimble, the convicted murderer. And, Kimble soon learns that the reason the police are NOW looking for Joe is to let him know that the real embezzler has been discovered and he's no longer a wanted man. But fever and years of being on the run make Joe a hard man to convince....and he seems much more concerned with revenge than his own freedom.
This is a very interesting episode...made more so by having a distinguished actor like Weaver there to play against Kimble. Well done and well worth seeing.
