  • A surprise party for Number 6 turns awry.

    A party for Number 6 turns into a dangerous game. It is an interrogation for Number 6 by Number 2 alias Peter Pan. The big surprise comes toward the end of this particular episode in the form of a chase and what Number 2 conjured up in foiling the plans of Number 6.
  • Number Six goes to a party but is put on trial

    I don't quite know what to make of this episode. They seemed to be going for a particular theme but it just fell short most of the time. When the episode was over, I thought "that's it"? This episode just seemed to have a feel as being a filler. The female Number Two in this episode was really good though, she seemed to outsmart/out-think Number Two at every turn and I hope she is in future episodes. After some mindless diaglogue between Number Two and a villager who is his "Observer", He ends up going to a party where everyone dresses in Victorian costume while he has a tuxedo and is suddenly put on trial and sentenced to death for carrying and listening to a radio. Strange episode, even by "prisoner" standards.
