  • The Prisoner encounters the Girl who was Death...

    (Sonia tells Number Six that he will be the first to know when the rocket hits London)
    Sonia: "Oh, won't that be exciting?!"
    Number Six: "I'll just go to pieces."

    One of my favourites from The Prisoner, and that's partly because it isn't really an episode of The Prisoner. Until the very last minute, it has nothing to do with the Village, Number Two or anyone. It is simply about 20 minutes of weirdness and 30 minutes of Number Six avoiding death at every turn. Much more entertaining than seeing him be drugged constantly, having his mind swapped or trying yet again to escape.
