Tod and Buz, driving through California "West by North" in a rainstorm nearly run over a young woman. After giving her a lift to the next town they find she is on the run from a murder charge. Despite the protests of the Sheriff, the townspeople and the woman herself, Buz feels there is more to the story than obvious guilt.Written by
This story is an example of the weird ways the boys get involved with other people's problems. Suzanne Pleshette, (one of my favorite actresses), is a fugitive on the lam, (no she didn't kill Richard Kimble's wife), who literally jumps into their car after running away from a religious revival meeting. She was there seeking shelter for herself and her daughter after killing the sheriff's drunken brother. The boys take up her cause and find out that there was another person present who may know more.
It's not a memorable episode except for Pleshette, who not only gives another excellent performance but who has never looked more beautiful than in this episode. She reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor in some scenes, (except she could act rings around Liz). John Larch , (who will be back in another role in just four episodes), plays the Sheriff and Buz's sparring partner for this episode.
