Convicted of killing his wife, Doctor Richard Kimble (David Jansen) — “an innocent victim of blind justice” — was finally able to vindicate himself in the second half of a two-parter that was the most-seen regular series episode at that time. Kimble convinced Philip Gerard, the police lieutenant obsessed with his capture, to grant him 24 hours to track down the real killer, the notorious one-armed man. The confrontation took place at an abandoned amusement park at the top of the towering Mahi-Mahi ride. The killerʹs confession was heard by Kimble alone before the one-armed man plunged to his death. Fortunately, a witness finally came forward and Kimble was acquitted. As he walked from the courtroom, a free man at last, a squad car screamed up to the curb and two policemen hurried out.
