    8.0
    This episode is unique in Untouchables history. It's the only episode out of 118 where nobody gets killed. Ness apprehends Max Charcas and Jerry Fanning wisely decides to surrender instead of shooting it out. We also see a fresh sidekick for Robert Stack in the form of Vince Edwards as Agent Nick Delgado.



    Despite the lack of violence there's still plenty of action and suspense in Mexican Stakeout as well as numerous twists and turns in the storyline. Lead guest stars Edwards and Martin Landau both do well and Ken Lynch has a nasty turn as real life mobster Ted Newberry. The real Newberry would not be indicted and convicted of racketeering as mentioned in the ending narration of the episode. His bullet riddled body would be discovered in an Indiana ditch in January of 1933. It was put there courtesy of one Frank Nitti.moreless
