Storyline

Nick Acropolis has created a vast network of bookies and is the king of the numbers racket in the greater Chicago area. His problems start when he discovers that Louis Manzak, his wife's brother and the manager of one his betting parlors, has skimmed $200,000 of the proceeds. Were it not for the family relationship, Nick would have had him killed but rather he gives Louis 48 hours to come with $50,000 as a down payment on what he owes. His sister lends him half of that amount but his attempt to borrow the rest from someone else leads to disaster. The dispute also brings Acropolis into a dispute with Frank Nitti while Nick's enforcer, Frankie Fershman, decides the time has come for him to move up in the organization. Written by garykmcd

Robert Stack and The Untouchables turn out to be just spectators in this one although they do kind of get their man in the end. Nicholas Georgiade is listening on a wire tap as a victim starts to call out and he hears a murder being committed.

The murder is committed by Leonard Stone, the weak and idiot brother of Constance Ford who is both wife and business partner of top bookmaker Lee Marvin. Stone was desperately trying to get a down payment on $200.000.00 that he skimmed off Marvin's take and if it weren't for the fact he was his wife's brother he'd be done in then and there.

With The Untouchables breathing down Marvin's neck hoping to get evidence for an income tax trial like the one that nailed Al Capone, Marvin is also negotiating with Frank Nitti who wants a piece of Marvin's business. And Johnny Seven who is Marvin's enforcer is looking to make moves on his own and does.

It all ends badly for the bad guys. It's a good episode, a bloody episode where the bad guys were eliminating themselves and The Untouchables picked up the pieces.
