Kimble's still out in the country, assisting an aging veterinarian who travels around caring for farm animals. They encounter Harry Townes, who has nothing against veterinarians but people doctors are somehow against his religion. His daughter, (Kim Darby) is concerned about her sick baby and so is Kimble. He goes to the point of signing the vet's name to a prescription for antibiotics. Meanwhile a deputy, (Tom Skerritt) is after Kimble with a couple of bloodhounds.
Townes, who had played a cop who harassed Kimble in the premiere, plays a religious fanatic who seems, as some do, to have made up his own religion. He seems to be converted away from it rather easily, although his role in Kimble's escape is a clever one. Townes retied from acting in the 1970', (but occasionally returned) to become an Episcopal priest in his hometown of Huntsville, Alabama. I assume he liked doctors better than the guy he played here.
