Plot summary
7 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Richard Kimble reads in the newspaper that his father Dr. John Kimble (actor Robert Keith) is donating his medical library to a university. Figuring that this means his father is in bad health, Kimble returns to Stafford for a visit.

This is the only episode that makes any mention of Kimble's brother Ray, played by actor Andrew Prine. It is not easy to be the brother of a convicted murderer on escape, and Ray has suffered many personal failures because of Richard's notoriety. Ray has taken up race car driving, and Kimble's sister Donna Taft (actress Jacqueline Scott) is afraid Ray no longer cares if he lives or dies.

Kimble's desire to see Donna's children David and Billy (played by actors Billy Mumy and Clint Howard), and to help solve Ray's problems, are complicated by the snooping of Lieutenant Gerard.

Leonard Taft, Donna's husband, is played by actor James Sikking. In "Running Scared" Leonard is played by actor Lin McCarthy, and in "The Judgment" Leonard is played by actor Richard Anderson. In "The Judgment," the Tafts apparently have a different child, Bobby, played by actor Johnny Jensen, and mention is made of his brother, who is not named.
