This is the second episode to take place in a fishing village (the other is The Cage); like migrants on farms, fishermen have their own communities, do not trust the law, and the implication is that they break it--we never quite know if the diver Johnny died accidentally or if his death was murder. At any rate, it is interesting that Kimble as "Tony" is open with Coralee that he will only be around for two weeks, that he is running, and running from the police. The fishing village is an environment where people will be saddened, but not frightened, by these revelations.
The underwater divers with whom he works are suspicious that he will say something to implicate them in foul play at the inquest into the death of the diver Johnny. Coralee is being run out of town as a jinx who causes the men in her life to die simply by associating with them.
In most episodes, Kimble rescues women who are in trouble. In this one, Kimble as "Tony" seems genuinely attracted to Coralee (Antoinette Bower). He is the one making the moves, and she rescues him.
