Number 6 came across Number 86 in the woods high on drugs. One might almost be forgiven for thinking the woman had dropped out, and was caught picking flowers in the woods! She told Number 6 that she was higher than Number 2, well that would be the drugs talking I expect. However her drugged state of mind made her susceptible to Number 6’s attempt to hypnotize her, I mean doesn’t Number 6 just make you annoyed? He annoys me, because it seems he can just about turn his hand to almost anything, amongst his many other accomplishments the man’s a damned hypnotist now! I blame the scriptwriters, there being far too many of them. Had there been but a couple writing the scripts for ‘the Prisoner’ then Number 6’s abilities could be toned down, and he’d have been unable to get away with so much. Why? Because it would have made the man more human, open more to failure than success. Altogether the scriptwriters made Number 6 too good to be true.
Be seeing you
