6 and Engadine - A B and C}
has ever seen “C,” if Madame Engadine has never seen “C” yet she seems sure
that “C” is a man. As for “C” liking impressive offices, well that’s true, look
at the office in the Green Dome, an in-joke perhaps? And when Engadine says she must get back, that she can’t
leave a party so long, well she’s had a long drive from Paris…..to The Village!
There has to be A B and C, after all
the Prisoner’s whole life has been researched and computed, and that’s what it
all boiled down to. If we are to believe the researchers and the computer got
it all right in the first place. And yet Number 6 did dream of “A and “B,” once
they had been introduced to him. “A” put me in mind of a dodgy second-hand car
dealer, I don’t know why, perhaps he looks the kind of man who cannot be
trusted. Who would sell his own grandmother! As for “B,” she’s a beautiful spy
woman, capable until the chips are down, then she becomes helpless. She might
well gain secrets by seduction. As for “C,” Number 6 made Number 2 out to be
“C.” So clearly Number 2 isn’t “C,” which means that Number 6 is protecting “C”
whoever he or she is.
“C” could be Madame Engadine, engaged in bringing all kinds
of influential people together, as well as those of a more notorious nature, at
her celebrated parties in Paris. Engadine and Number 6, or rather ZM73
are clearly old friends, one can imagine that he has attended more than one of
her parties. Number 14 made the suggestion that Number 2 would be bringing
Madame Engadine to the Village. But clearly Number 2 wouldn’t be in any
position to do so, not after the escapade of this latest episode. No doubt
Madam Engadine was forgotten once the episode of ‘A B and C’ had been
As for Engadine knowing that “C” is a man, without
ever having met “C,” well it was Number 6 who put that thought into her head.
This in the same way that the doctor put words into “B’s” mouth, through
manipulation of his own dream.
