The police decide to use an agent as the boat's replacement skipper since the next passenger is the embezzler's wife who intends to meet up with him in Mexico. The police also decide to investigate the mysterious deckhand since he has no background. Written by
[Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble at work on a small boat]
For men who go down to the sea in ships, time ashore is precious - measured in minutes. For this man, it is measured in apprehension and danger. His name is Richard Kimble; he's a Fugitive.

That could be the title of almost any Fugitive episode. Charles Drake, who made a career of playing distinguished-looking but slimy guys, is an embezzler who escaped to Mexico, leaving his wife, (Anne Francis) behind to pretend that she "had no candle burning for him" before leaving the country herself to reunite with him. Kimble is a hand on the boat she hired. The captain of the boat suddenly takes ill and is replaced by Charles Bronson, who actually is an FBI agent after Drake, (the illness was a ruse). He wants to be there when the 'estranged' wife and her husband reunite. When they get to the small Mexican town where Drake is hold up, Kimble finds out there is already a wife of his is there- a new one, his former secretary. Meanwhile Bronson finds out he's got two peas in his pod. He can bring in the embezzler and Kimble at the same time- until he gets injured in a fire and needs Kimble's help.
Anne Francis is a favorite of mine since the "Honey West" days. Unfortunately, she isn't Honey here or she might have been able to take care of the situation all by herself.
