Near Kansas City, Richard Kimble reads a want ad cryptically informing him about the murder of his wife Helen, with a message to phone Eleanor Burnett, the daughter of John Burnett, his defense attorney who is no longer alive. Ellie and her mother Ada had hired a private detective to help find the one-armed man and he believes he now has, but when Kimble arrives to a rendezvous with Ellie she informs him that the one-armed man they discovered had died in a fire. Kimble is devastated but checks the story himself and believes it to be true. However the private detective does some more checking and finds the one-armed man who died was incarcerated the night of Helen Kimble's murder, meaning Kimble can still find his wife's killer. Ellie, however, wants Kimble for herself and withholds this information - and faces arrest as Lt. Gerard, a family friend of the Burnetts, has learned from a reluctant Ada of Ellie's rendezvous with Kimble and her plan to fly him out of the country. Written by Michael Daly

9/22/64: "World's End"
27 April 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

Suzanne Pleshette, one of my favorite actresses, plays Ellie Burnett, a native of Stafford, Indiana, who attended every session of Richard Kimble's trial and fell in love with him, (as some women are reported doing with defendants and prisoners: empathy turns to an imagined love). She's hired a private detective to find the one- armed man and he's tracked him down to Kansas City. Ellie puts an ad in several papers asking "R.K." to meet her there and he does.

But this one armed man has burned to death in a fire. But was he the right one-armed man? Ellie realizes that if it is, Richard will give up his quest to prove his innocence and they can go off together to a country with no extradition treaty, (she picks Brazil as did Bethel Leslie's Marcie King in the first season's "Storm's Center"). The private eye determines that the deceased man was not Kimble's one- armed man- he was in prison when Helen Kimble was murdered. But Ellie selfishly withholds that information, hoping for a romantic future with Kimble. Another dubious ally- and disappointed love interest- for our hero.
