Gerard is waiting in the wings for Kimble's arrival, but unknown to Gerard also working at LAPD headquarters is court stenographer Jean Carlisle, who is close to the Kimble family because they helped her cope with her father's arrest for embezzlement. Upon learning of Gerard's presence, Jean calls Richard's sister Donna and learns that Richard is probably headed for LA. After she meets Kimble and helps him escape a police dragnet, she helps him tail Fred Johnson, who has been unexpectedly bailed out of jail through seedy bondsman Art Howe.

For the famous last episode, ABC wanted to tie in the beginning of a new series that would debut after The Fugitive ended.

The problem was that the shows were being produced by different production companies and Quinn Martin was not interested in cooperating with the other show, feeling it would partially steal the spotlight from the long awaited conclusion of his series.

This is part 1 of the 2 part final episode, and does not disappoint. Fred Johnson, the one-armed man, is arrested in Los Angeles for busting up a bar, and the publicity brings Kimble and Gerard to town. Kimble has a hidden ally, Jean Carlisle from Stafford, a court stenographer who often works at police headquarters. He barely escapes a difficult trap with her help.

Gerard questions Johnson and starts to think maybe Kimble is telling the truth. A surprising circumstance leads to Johnson's release, requiring Jean to save Kimble again. But ultimately, Gerard captures his man.
