  • A deserted village? Now would be a good time to leave!

    The creative staff behind this show always know how to create a fresh story even though the show primarily takes place in the same location. This episode which leaves us scratching our heads (again) was no different. Number Six wakes up to an apparently deserted village, and after some confirmation he decides that it would be a good time to escape. After building a boat, sailing the sea, running into some gun runners then finally washing up on shore in England, Number six has made it home. He visits his old house which is now owned by a lady who helps him get back on his feet. It's interesting to see how Number Six visits his old haunts & tries to uncover the location of the
    village even though he isn't fully trusted by his friends. We learn about a probable location for the village (though it might be a trick). SPOILER ALERT
    The ending of this episode makes us realize that probably this whole scheme was thought up by Number Six's captors in an attempt to see who he reports to or where he would go.
