The perfect patsy...
17 March 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Harlan Guthrie and his sister-in-law are close....REALLY close. The pair have been having an affair and both have contempt for Ann, the wife. They constantly treat her like she's incompetent and she's come to internalize it. At the same time, Richard Kimble (David Janssen) is now working as a groom for this rich family...and he's been working to make Ann less afraid and more confident. He's very gentle and patient...and not only helps Ann but starts to notice the relationship between Harlan and the sister-in-law....and he's worried about Ann's safety. He tries to warn her but she'll hear none of it. In the meantime, the illicit lovers have come to figure out who their groom is...and now that they know he's a convicted murderer, he'd be the perfect patsy if they were to finally do away with Ann!

This is an unusual episode of "The Fugitive", as it's a mystery-suspense piece and usually the show involved Kimble just helping folks...but here he's being set up for a murder! Casting Robert Webber as the husband was not unexpected, as he so often played horrible, conniving characters...the FIRST you'd expect to cheat on his wife or kill her!! Very well made...one of the better ones in fact.
