If Number 6 wins the election Number 2 informs him that Number 1 may no longer be a mystery to him, if he sees what Number 2 means. Does this mean Number 2 knows who Number 1 is, that he is Number 6 himself! Seeing as how Number 2 had telephonic communication with Number 1, he would surely have recognised the voice on the other end. And besides at the end as Number 2 removes his scarf and hands over power, he tells Number 6 that there is no need to go into details, if there is anything he wants to know, just press a button, you’re the boss! But Number 1's the Boss!
