Dr. Kimble is closing in on the one-armed man. Inquiring about his prey at a diner, a stove catches fire, and when Kimble runs to help the cook, the stove explodes and the blast fells both. In the hospital, Kimble, who now has temporary amnesia, is treated like a ping-pong ball in a heated match between a social worker whose acts of mercy are quashed, and a icy psychiatrist using Kimble as a case to build his reputation.

When Kimble was admitted to the hospital he had received a large laceration, so his doctor told him, to his left forehead.
