Richard Kimble is run over a by nice lady...and his life flashes before his eyes!
9 March 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, a total dirt-bag reveals to his long-time girlfriend that he's already married!! Ruth (Pamela Tiffin) is naturally heartbroken and leaves. She should NOT be driving, as she's hysterical and crying and before you know it, she's run over poor Richard Kimble (David Janssen) who is just happens to be standing in the wrong spot at the time!

When Kimble awakens, he does something odd. While he clearly was hit by Ruth, he lies to the police and tells them he stepped in front of her car. She appreciates him lying to save her from jail but soon comes to realize why he lied. While he's in his hospital bed, he is asleep and starts having a nightmare...and begins talking out in his sleep! She now knows that he's a wanted murderer...but she takes pity on him and agrees to keep that a secret between them. Later, when he's able to be discharged, she brings Kimble home to recuperate.

The style of this particular episode is very unusual in many ways. There is no opening montage like usual and Kimbel's backstory is completely fleshed out here. You learn about his wife's miscarriage and hysterectomy and you learn that try as he might to make the marriage work, his wife was so depressed and angry that the marriage was a nightmare for him. And, you see the events unfold during the night his wife was murdered...including him seeing the one-armed man. At least half of the episode is just these flashback scenes. It's also a different episode because there isn't the usual threat to Kimble during the episode or at the end. So, instead of this conflict, they insert the backstory.

While I am not a sexist sort of guy, I was absolutely struck by Pamela Tiffin. She was mesmerizingly gorgeous and I never saw her made up so beautifully in films I've seen her in, such as "One, Two, Three". You REALLY want to see him stay with her at the end...especially since she is a fundamentally decent lady despite her troubles.

So is the episode any good? Well, that's hard to say. While I hate flashbacks, this is a novel way of telling Kimble's story...and it does fill in a lot of gaps. I would have preferred just a straight retelling of the past and a separate episode involving Tiffin...but it's still pretty good. I especially like the scene where Kimble takes Ruth to a surprise party...it's very poignant and well played.
