Storyline

When racketeer Danny Mundt decides the time has come to get rid of Eliot Ness, he hires hit man Elroy Daldran. During World War I, Elroy had developed a taste for killing and he saw no reason to stop doing what he liked just because the war was over. His first attempt to get Ness - he tosses a grenade into his passing car - isn't entirely successful. Ness manages to jump out of the car before the grenade explodes but when he regains consciousness, he finds that he is blind. While Mundt is satisfied with the result, Elroy won't be satisfied until the job is completely done. Written by garykmcd

The man who blinded their boss
12 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Untouchables wound up its run with this episode where Eliot Ness is targeted by a rogue operator for doing too good a job on his speakeasy operation. Tom Tully hires a Mad Dog Coll like killer in Jeremy Slate, an individual who honed his killing skills in the late World War and who really loves his work. He also won't leave a job half done.

So when he tosses a hand grenade into Robert Stack's car and Stack is only blinded, Slate feels unsatisfied even though Tully is more than pleased. In fact Slate kills another of Tully's hoods who tries to stop him from continuing.

Paul Picerni takes over The Untouchables temporarily as they search for the man who blinded their boss. Slate is a truly frightening individual with no qualms and no fears, definitely a basket case.
