  • Number six in control!

    Finally, after being duped, tricked, and betrayed in most of the episodes,Number Six goes on the offensive. I was never a big fan of the actor who played Number 2 in this episode so to see him crack up was mildly satisfying. We get to really see how clever Number Six is and how using the inherant distrust that already exists in the village, he is able to make Number 2 look like a fool. Using absurd but effective methods to get under Number Two's skin , Number six is perceived as being a "Plant" meant to spy on the security of the village and its man in charge. Using this ploy he almost gets some information about who actually runs the village. A very clever story!
