When Lt. Hess reports detecting the signal, he only states that he is located "a mile east of the bridge," without giving a direction bearing. This would be useless information, as without the bearing, there is no way of knowing from what direction the signal is coming. See more »

Carol Rossen was a guest star in five episodes of The Fugitive and this is the best work I've seen her do. She plays a strong, self-assured character, and dominates the scenery whenever she's on screen. Her scenes with David Janssen, sometimes flirtatious, sometimes adversarial, and always with her holding a gun on him, are very good. Leslie Nielsen is her husband. They're kidnappers, but they're not all bad. He even comes back with three coffees when he returns from making his ransom demand: one for his wife, one for himself, and one for Dr. Kimble.
This episode actually has a couple of rather touching scenes in it. You see the affection between Kimble and young Glen. And there's ultimately love between Irene and Cheyney, the kidnappers.
The rest of the story features the wealthy Pryors and the police. Mrs. Pryor argues with Mr. Pryor about paying the ransom. The police set up a phone tap at the house and track the ransom payment. It's pretty mundane stuff. It's the scenes at the remote cabin hideaway that are fun to watch, including one where the police come around but all three need to remain quiet because neither the kidnappers nor the hostage want to be found.
