I wonder what this interim Number 2 had to do with Number 6, if anything? We know absolutely thing about her, how long her term in office was, or if she was brought to The Village for any other reason than to deal with Number 6. Number 6 may not have recognized her, she might not have been a Number 2 at all, but someone placed as being Number 2 as someone to whom Number 6 has reported an assassination plot against Number 2! Mind you when it comes to the point of Number 6 not recognizing this Number 2, he didn’t recognize the current Number 2 in office either when he paid him a call that time!
Be seeing you
