Richard Kimble is surprised to learn that a guy he knew some time ago has been convicted of murdering him!! Justin Briggs (John Anderson) was a very angry and violent man he knew while he was assuming one of his many aliases. It seems that after Kimble left town, something he ALWAYS ends up doing sooner or later, the town assumed Briggs had murdered him! And, even though they had no body, Briggs was convicted of murder. Kimble knows what it's like to be falsely accused and although Briggs is an awful person, he returns to the old town to exonerate him. Unfortunately, it turns out Briggs was killed trying to escape...and one of his sons, who is equally unstable, is determined to kill Kimble when he learns the man is alive!
While this episode is told through several flashbacks, the previous episode they refer to was not actually made. The flashbacks were made specifically for this episode. So why didn't I score this one a bit higher? Well the Briggs family is a bit hard to understand...they are THAT angry and unpredictable...to the point of being almost cartoonish. In other words, this all could have been handled a bit better...with more subtlety. Still, like all episodes it is worth seeing.
