Plot summary

This two part episode is outstanding. The opening, where Kimble arrives at work in the middle of the night in driving rain, is perhaps the most powerful in the series.

Lieutenant Gerard and his wife Marie (well played by actress Barbara Rush) are supposed to be on vacation, but it gets interrupted once again, because of news of Kimble. She is irate about always being second in Gerard's thoughts, after Kimble.

Trying to escape from her husband, who has abandoned her to join the search, Marie Gerard, now using her maiden name Lindsey, finds most paths out of town are blocked by floods. In the meantime, Kimble is under enormous pressure from the manhunt, jumping from one dangerous, heart-pounding situation to the next, in one case relying on the help of small children to shield him from Gerard.

A lucky escape from danger puts Kimble on the same bus with Marie Gerard, but they do not meet until a crash which leaves her blind. She cannot see Kimble's face, and Kimble also does not recognize her. Despite hostility from a fellow passenger, Kimble is trusted to take a truck and seek medical aid for Mrs. Gerard.

In "Never Wave Goodbye," Part 1, Gerard is married to Ann Gerard, played by actress Rachel Ames. This change of wives is never explained.
