Is This The Face Of Number One?
No, for me I like to think this is the face of No.1. Out and about in the Village, enjoying a little freedom which The Schizoid Man affords him. Perhaps he wanted to get his hands dirty for a change, to gain some hands on experience with No.6...........Well he's getting that alright!
I suppose you are going to say that there is another flaw in my idea that this is No.1, that Curtis died at the end, suffocated to death by the Village Guardian. Well we only have No.6's word for that. Perhaps 'Rover' had only suffocated Curtis into a state of unconsciousness, and his pulse was only faint. Or of course there could be another reason, that Curtis wasn't dead at all, that No.6 was looking after No.1. Who headed back to the relative safety of the Rocket as soon as he was able!
Well one has these thoughts, and with such thoughts they are better written down so that they may be seen in their true proportion. But either way, this is the face of Number One. And if it is Curtis who died at the end of the Schizoid Man, who is No.1, if it isn't Curtis or No.6? I mean how many look-a-likes, or dopplegangers can No.6 have? I'll be seeing you.
