The series seemed to be alternating good and bad episodes at this point and this is one of the best ones. It's not just based on an intriguing situation with a suspenseful ending. Here the emotions of the characters are paramount.
Another woman, (Janice Rule), has fallen for Kimble and he's fallen for her as well. They are co-workers at a trucking firm, (she's the dispatcher). Kimble keeps offering her plans for them to get away and do things together and she obviously wants to go with him but finds a reason to turn him down each time. He has a secret and she does, too. She's working at this job on work release and somehow Kimble doesn't know this yet. Their relationship is impossible because of her problem he doesn't know about and even more impossible because of the situation he's in that she doesn't know about. When her application for parole is denied, she bolts and joins Kimble at an out-of- season resort they have to themselves while the police are looking for both of them. After an idyll there, they hit the road where each other's secret is revealed to them.
The episode has the feel of an old-fashioned doomed lovers story, like "You Only Live Once", Gun Crazy" and "Bonnie and Clyde" but without the violence or the tragic ending, although both lovers face the somewhat lesser tragedy that neither of them can find happiness because their lives really don't belong to them as long as they are fugitives.
If the decision had not been made to have an "endgame" episode, this might have been a good story to end the show with. But there was one more regular episode and then: "The Judgement".
