So far there has only been talk of a bomb, and the threat of a bomb which turned out to be a false alarm. But then came Appreciation Day, and the real and present danger of the assassination/execution of Number 2 who was about to retire. There he stood on the balcony of the Gloriette, with the bomb hung about his head and shoulders hidden in the Great Seal of Office. This assassination/execution had been weeks in the planning, Plan Division Q, the grooming of the watchmaker, the making of the replica of the Great Seal of Office, the bomb and its detonator. It’s just as well the bomb wasn’t actually detonated, and it might have been, by accident in the struggle between Number 6 and Number 100. Mind you if it had been it wouldn’t just have been Number 2 who had died in the explosion, and think of the mess, blood, gore, and sinew all over the place and the people standing in that confined space of the balcony!
This only goes to prove that it would be possible to make a bomb in The Village. After all the plastic explosive, supplied by Number 100, inside the replica of the Great seal had to have come from somewhere!
Be seeing you
