This is one of the better episodes. Kimble reads hometown papers and learns of his father's death. He contacts his sister Donna Taft, outstandingly played by actress Jacqueline Scott. She pleads to meet with Richard, so they arrange to meet at a hotel in Fort Wayne, Indiana, with the Tafts using the last name of Townsend.

The prosecutor from Kimble's trial, Michael Ballinger (actor James Daly) is running for Governor of Indiana. When his wife Harriet Ballinger (actress Joanne Linville) spots Donna at the Indianapolis airport, and learns she is traveling under an assumed name, law enforcement swings into gear to follow Donna in the hopes of finding her brother. The conviction of Kimble helped to launch Ballinger's political career, and it is hoped Kimble's capture would secure his election as Governor. Yet, Kimble has a secret ally in Ballinger's camp.

At one point, Kimble actually hides in the Ballingers' hotel room, where Ballinger finds Kimble and they struggle.

Richard and Donna (and her husband Leonard) do finally get to meet at a sports arena, and it is a very touching moment, but the sudden arrival of Lieutenant Gerard and other police poses severe danger to Kimble.

In the episode "The Girl from Little Egypt" Kimble's prosecutor is not Ballinger but is instead Mr. Rand, played by actor Bernard Kates.

Donna's husband Leonard Taft is played by actor Lin McCarthy. In an earlier episode, "Home is the Hunted," Leonard Taft is played by actor James Sikking. In the final episode, "The Judgment," Leonard Taft is played by actor Richard Anderson. Lin McCarthy in this episode does the best job of the three.
