Storyline

A diplomat's slip lands Kimble in the only place he can't be re-captured: a Washington, D.C. embassy. Dr. Kimble ministers to the ambassador from a newly democratized African nation, when the emissary is almost flattened by a D.C. cab. Everything looks cozy for the fugitive, who's in town to court an appeal specialist - especially bunking down the hall from the legation's man-eater secretary. Written by David Stevens

Plot summary
26 October 2006 | by ynot-16See all my reviews

This is a very clever episode. The plot is such a delight that we will purposely be vague about it. Ivan Dixon plays an ambassador from an unnamed African nation, and puts on a stellar performance. Kimble has a mission that takes him to Washington DC, where he ends up meeting Ambassador Unawa.

For reasons of his own, the ambassador takes Kimble under his wing. For a while things look bright but, unfortunately, a situation that appears secure for Kimble suddenly becomes very insecure when information about his identity becomes known to the wrong person.

Lieutenant Gerard becomes involved, and things look bleak for Kimble.
