[Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble and Sister Veronica riding down a mountain road in a decrepit and beaten old car]
Richard Kimble, alias Nick Walker, had called it "a car looking for a quiet place to die." But this ancient vehicle, held together by faith and rusty wiring, has come halfway across the mountain carrying two Fugitives: Sister Veronica, a Fugitive from God, on her way to Sacramento to renounce her vows, and Richard Kimble, Fugitive from injustice, now wearing the name ...

In the opening act of part 2, Kimble and the Sister encounter a couple of nature's undesirables while on their journey west through the mountains. The scene is important within the context of the main story and is a memorable one for Eileen Heckart fans.
The righteous Lieutenant Tim Craig goes way out of his territory and offers Sheriff Morris his services. He thinks he knows how Kimble operates and freely admits luck played a role in the Lincoln City escape.
As fate would have it, the old truck runs into mechanical trouble which requires cash to rectify. And as fate would have it Kimble runs into antagonist Salmi in his quest to repair the truck.
Again Divine Providence versus free will; you be the judge! Fortunately Mrs. Loring (played by Ruta Lee,) is Salmi's sister-in-law. She's sympathetic to Kimble and offers him a way to earn a few dollars. While staying overnight at Mrs. Loring's place, Sister Veronica learns the shocking truth about her traveling companion. Suspense ensues as both Sheriff Morris and Lieutenent Craig are close by. Albert Salmi smells a rat but cannot figure it out. Because of his crooked and weak souled nature however, he finally uncovers the truth.
More suspense follows and the story's theme Divine Providence rears it's beautiful head two more times !
Watching the 2 parter "Angels Travel On Lonely Roads" will make anyone think twice about Divine Providence versus free will.
