This was written into the script, because the scene in which Alison was able to tell between the real Number 6 by kissing him was removed. It was suggested by scriptwriter Terrence Feely that Alison and Number 6 were lovers. And certainly Patrick McGoohan was not having anything to do with that, so insisted upon a change in the script. While this scene was able to be shot on a set in Number 2’s office, it should be blindingly obvious that the Mini-Moke race sequence had to be cut because the script was not included amongst those episodes to be filmed extensively on location in Portmeirion.
