Deafeat Snatched Out Of The Fire Of Failure!
Depending on how you look at it, as far as I can say, there was really only one successful escape made during the 17 episodes of the Prisoner, and that was made by Professor Jacob Seltzman in Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling. This of course would be seen as a defeat for The Vilages administration, and for No.2 in particular. But not such as a defeat as the death of The Professor, and the destruction of the General of the episode of the same name. Okay, Professor Seltzman has escaped The Village, perhaps in a body not to his liking, the Colonel's. But at least The Village's administration still has the Seltzman machine, which they had before Seltzman was brought to The Village, and they did gain Seltzman's reversal process and the ability to change the minds of three people at the same time! Not only that, but at least they know exactly what Professor Seltzman looks like, when the search for Professor Seltzman recommences! Be seeing you.
