An accident that wasn't.
26 April 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, Gary Keller (Beau Bridges) is playing with a rifle--aiming it at cars and imagining what it would be like to pull the trigger. Soon, his father, Steve (Telly Savalas), arrives and they talk...and all of the sudden, Gary inexplicably pulls the trigger--striking the driver of a jeep that is driving by! The vehicle flips and the passenger, Richard Kimble, is hurt...the driver, a local preacher, is dead!

Soon folks put 2 and 2 together and come up with 37! In other words, they automatically assume that Kimble murdered the guy. When Lt. Girard hears about this, he insists that this isn't like Kimble at all and he couldn't have been responsible for the killing.

In the meantime, Steve Keller catches up to Kimble and threatens to kill him unless he keeps his mouth shut about the gunshot. After all, Steve will do ANYTHING to keep his stupid son from going to prison. Steve tells Kimble that he'll not only kill him but Girard...who has just caught up to them. What can Kimble do to escape AND protect Girard?

Overall, a decent episode though I love how they referred to the shooting as an accident. Nope...sure didn't look like one to me! That kid has issues!
