Plot summary

Kimble, as Jeff Cooper, gets a job working for Lars Christian, a sailmaker at Santa Barbara on the California coast. Also working there is Eric, played by actor Robert Duvall, who was taken in at age 12 by Lars in Norway during World War II. Also working there is Lars' niece, Karen, played by actress Susan Oliver. She is in love with Kimble, and he with her.

Contrary to his usual practice, Kimble begins to think maybe he can get away with settling down, once he checks out a rumor of a one armed man in jail in Los Angeles. That does not work out well, and ends with Lieutenant Gerard hot on his trail.

Thinking that Gerard will believe he fled the area, he decides to stay so he can have a life with Karen. However, Eric, who is complex, brooding and suspicious, does not like or trust Kimble. He is sure Kimble is a rolling stone certain to run off someday, leading to heartbreak for Karen. Further complexities arise from Dr. Ray Brooks, played by actor Lee Philips. Although Dr. Brooks likes Kimble, he had a past relationship with Karen he wants to rekindle, which he now cannot do because she only has eyes for Kimble.

Lars, who has been treated by Dr. Brooks, dies, but before doing so, urges Eric to give up his opposition to Kimble.

This episode has an appearance by Gerard's wife Ann, played by actress Rachel Ames, and his son Flip, played by an uncredited child actor. In "Landscape with Running Figures," Gerard's wife is Marie Gerard, played by actress Barbara Rush. In "Nemesis," Gerard's son is Phil Gerard, Jr., played by child actor Kurt Russell.
