Plot summary
24 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble hitches a ride with 2 Mexican farmworkers in wine country. He learns there are labor-management tensions, and that at a recent meeting the driver favored a strike while the passenger disagreed. Suddenly, shots come from outside the vehicle, killing the driver and injuring Kimble's arm.

While being treated and questioned by police, Kimble learns that a man named Morales is under suspicion, for the killer used his rifle. Kimble did not know that Morales was the passenger in the car and thus could not be guilty.

Kimble discovers who the real killer is, Carl Crandall (actor Roy Thinnes), the son of wealthy winery owner Pete Crandall (actor James Gregory). The Crandalls have enormous influence over the local police, and Carl vows he will do anything to stop Kimble from making his accusation public. Meanwhile, Kimble faces danger from all sides as the Mexicans come to believe Kimble has falsely named Morales as the killer.

This episode has fine performances by actor James Gregory (Insp. Luger on Barney Miller) as the killer's father, and by actor Dabbs Greer.as the slimy hotel manager.
