Audio problem: The house Kimble and Marcie are holed up in certainly has remarkable soundproofing. There's a 100 mph hurricane raging outside, yet the moment they close the door, it's completely quiet inside. Throughout the episode, the storm sounds are audible only faintly, and only when the hurricane is relevant to the story line. (00:09:00 - 00:20:15)Jean G
Continuity mistake: In Part 1, Kimble worried about Gerard tracing him by a match he left behind. We got a close-up when he tore the match out of the book: it was the 3rd in a row of 5. But here, as he looks at the matchbook and worries again, the close-up shows the only match missing from the book is the 5th one. (00:02:00)Jean G
Factual error: This is the only episode in which we see Kimble hotwire and steal a car. But he does it in seconds (two whole decades before MacGyver), with nothing but a foil cigarette package liner. Not likely. He'd need a screw driver or pocket knife, at the very least. (00:35:30)Jean G
Visible crew/equipment: In the flashback to the night of Helen's murder, Kimble drives to the deserted lake after their argument. When he opens the car door, the wing window reflects several film crew members very clearly, including one person's arm and wristwatch. (00:11:50)Jean G
Continuity mistake: When Gerard leaves the cell block, Kimble is at the cell door with his hands on the bars. Next shot, as Gerard exits, the cell door is visible in the background, and Kimble is no longer standing there. But in an immediate cut back to the cell, he's back with his hands on the bars again.

Trivia: This was the first US TV series ever to resolve its story line and air a definitive ending, despite network objections that doing so could harm its syndication revenue. The 2-hour finale, "The Judgment," garnered the highest TV ratings ever up to that time, a record it held for many years afterward.Jean G
