| Nothing buggy about this Moran
From the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, George Moran better known as Bugs to the public has hatched on a new scheme involving taking over a trucking union to strongarm management. But now that Al Capone is away, The Untouchables are targeting Moran. And it's number 2 Untouchable Jerry Paris doing the targeting because Eliot Ness is in Washington, DC.

Lloyd Nolan plays Moran as a smooth article and completely the opposite of what he was in real life. Kidnapping is his tool here, first he kidnaps union local president Jack Warden's son to gain control. Then he kidnap trucking firm owner Harry Shannon's son to blackmail the company into recognizing the union.

Unlike a lot of episodes this one is left unresolved as narrator Walter Winchell reminds us that labor racketeering is a problem now even as it was in the days of The Untouchables.
