He does strike up something of a rapport with Number 2 during ‘The Chimes of Big Ben,’ but by the end of ‘The Schizoid Man’ he has been betrayed by 5 women, I’m not counting the doctor-Number 14! And it would be interesting to know how Number 6 came to be helping Alison with her mind reading! Monique came looking for Number 6’s help, but you couldn’t describe them as friends, only as confederates in the same cause, as Number 12 was in ‘The General.’ It could be said that Number 6 was only affected really by, and at the same time regretted, the death of Number 2, this by his show of emotion when he smashed the glass. Perhaps it was as Number 2 said of Number 6, “I’m beginning to like him,” if Number 6 could like anyone in The Village, and for Number 6 ‘Once Upon A Time’ had became a personal struggle!
Be seeing you
