October 1, 1932. In just 32 hours a grand jury is scheduled to hear testimony against racketeer Ted Newberrry. The chief witness against Newberry is a timid City Hall clerk named Julius Embry. Newberry's torpedo, Jerry Fanning, takes a shot at Embry outside a house where he is staying but misses. This causes Newberry to blacken Fanning's eye upon being told the news. Embry is taken to a hotel room for safekeeping but two City Hall hoods with an order signed by a corrupt police commissioner show up and abduct Embry. ..

Episode Notes
This marks the only episode of the series where no one gets killed. The baddies are either apprehended or choose to surrender rather than shoot it out.

Vince Edwards would soon go onto star in the popular 1960's medical drama Ben Casey.

Martin Landau would return in Season Three's Loophole.

Barbara Luna would return in Season Three's The Death Tree.

Locations: Chicago, El Paso, Chihuahua, Tupelobompo

Episode Quotes
Man: (to Ness about Max Charcas) You don't find him, senor. He finds you.

Newberry: (about Embry) Make no mistake about it, if I coulda found him he'd be in the sewer.

Newberry: (to Fanning): If Embry is alive find out where. We'll correct that situation.

LaMarr: What's the matter, Mr. Ness, isn't twenty grand enough?

Though this is the only episode of The Untouchables where nobody gets killed it is a taut and suspenseful episode with plenty of twists and turns. My one gripe would be that Ken Lynch did not get enough screen time as Ted Newberry.
