10/1/63: The Other Side of the Mountain
30 March 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

Dr, Kimble has found his way to West Virginia, where he gets involved in a bar room brawl not of his own making, just the sort of thing he wishes to avoid. He gets blamed for starting it and slugs a deputy sheriff to get away before he can be finger-printed. The Sheriff sets up a man hunt, soon joined by Gerard. The desperate Kimble runs into Sandy Dennis as a young girl who knows all about the mountain she and her mother live on but nothing of the world beyond that. She'll help Kimble escape if he'll take her with him. It all winds up in an abandoned mind- that was abandoned for a good reason. Gerard shows considerable detective skill here. Too bad he didn't use it to figure out that Kimble was innocent.

Williams Conrad tells us that it's eight months since Kimble's escape, so this adventure must have happened before the one in "The Witch". But, according to "The Fugitive Recaptured" by Ed Robertson, it was filmed after that episode. They just didn't check the script, another reason why they abandoned telling us how long it was between episodes. Bruce Dern makes his first of three appearances on The Fugitive. Kimble wants to avoid Gerard but believe me, if you want to avoid trouble, you don't want to see Bruce Dern showing up, either.
