Plot summary

Author: James Lawrence ( from United States
26 October 2006

Psychic Sal Mitchell and his wife Joan come to a town where Kimble works as a gas station attendant. Mitchell has a scheme to improve ticket sales for his performances by acting as an adviser to police about a string of robberies. But when the robberies are solved early, Mitchell appears out of luck, until he happens to notice Kimble's wanted poster at the police station.

Mitchell and his wife embark on a plan to fool Kimble and arrange for his capture under circumstances that will prove Mitchell's psychic abilities are real.

This episode contains a fine performance by actor J. Pat O'Malley as McBride, a grumpy retiree who lives at the boarding house where Kimble lives.

9/28/65 "Crack in the Crystal Ball"

Author: schappe1 from N Syracuse NY

A strange and unsatisfactory episode, especially since it's written by William Link and Richard Levinson, the creators of Columbo.

Larry Blyden plays an entertainer who does a 'psychic' act and who spots Kimble working at a gas station. He goes to the police, saying that he 'senses' Richard Kimble is in town. He gets blown off but then gets on a local TV show with the same claim. Meanwhile his wife, (Joanna Moore), befriends Kimble and claims to have seen the one- armed man. She sets up clues about Kimble that allow Blyden to "predict" things and convinces Kimble that one armed man is running a souvenir stand at a park. Blyden arranges, though his "visons" for the police to be there. Kimble doubts the whole set-up but has to see if the one-armed man is there. A friend manages to warn him and he walks away. But he was clearly close enough for the several cops in the area to spot him. Instead they go home disappointed.

So will you.
