Kimble, using the name Bill Garrison, works as a parking attendant at a country club, where he is dating singer Gayle Martin (actress Marlyn Mason) who works there. Unknown to Kimble, Gayle is in love with wealthy club member Alan Bartlett (actor Jack Lord), with whom she is having an affair. Alan's wife, Norma (actress Patricia Smith) uses a wheelchair, having been crippled in an auto accident three years earlier. Gayle wants Alan to leave his wife and marry her, but Alan is reluctant because the money is Norma's, and he likes living the rich life, not having to work.
Gayle is dating Bill (Kimble) only because she discovered his identity. Kimble is unaware of her relationship with Alan, and is fooled into thinking she cares for him. In a plot development similar to that of the Season 1 episode "Garden House," Gayle persuades Alan to scheme to hire Kimble to work at his house, so Alan can kill Norma under circumstances where he can blame Kimble.
