A small boy is snatched from a busy street, but nobody 'sees' anything.
Turns out his family owe money to a middle man - 'El Coyote' - who is responsible for getting these people to America.
Lots of twists and turns in this one and a very good villain, who seems to enjoy cutting the ears off children to make his point. I was glad that the ending again was a bit of a twist and not what one expected
Good characterisation, both of the episode characters and the regulars. Martin's disgust at the discovery of the little girl gives him a nice broader picture.
A very good, rounded episode with a lot more to it than you think at first.
The only quibble (bit of a SPOILER coming up). If you were El Coyote, under almost arrest in your own place and the FBI people were there with guns, would you try to use a small apple coring knife? Marty punches the guy and pulls his gun, having discovered El Coyote's depravity. What kind of mind (given that he's bright enough to get people into the US illegally for money) would then take a small knife and not even lunge at the agent? He raises it above his head with a gun pointed at him!! Didn't seem too true to life to me.
