Narrator: [Act I Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble, suitcase in hand, disembarking from a car after having had hitched a ride] West Virginia - what used to be a town before the coal mine gave out. A naked relic now, without future, without hope. Another dreary point in time for Richard Kimble, eight months a Fugitive.

Plot summary
27 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble is picked on by bullies at a country bar, led by Dell Jackson (actor Frank Sutton). This leads to a fight broken up by the Sheriff (actor R. G. Armstrong) and the Deputy (actor Bruce Dern). Unable to take an arrest even for disorderly conduct, Kimble has to escape.

Kimble goes up into the mountains where he meets Cassie (actress Sandy Dennis), a lovely young country gal who brings him to the cabin she shares with her grandmother. Kimble needs her help to escape, but she imposes a condition he cannot accept: she wants to come with him.

With Gerard, the local police, and tracking dogs hot on his trail, Kimble must make a desperate break for freedom, but Cassie complicates his situation.

Although this is an outstanding episode, to this writer the "West Virginia" scenery looks nothing at all like West Virginia, and instead looks suspiciously like southern California.
