The Therapy Zone

The Loathsome Presence Of An Unmutual
    The ladies sub-appeal committee took matters into it's own hands today, and led the citizens in riotous action by dragging No.6 off to the hospital in preparation for undergoing the process known as Instant Social Conversion.
    The citizens have a social conscience who are provoked by the loathsome presence of an unmutual. But in actual fact the citizens are sheep, and No.6 the goat who has come amongst them. No.6 is always stirring up trouble, and the citizens are easily manipulated, as demonstrated by No.6 as he is about to confess everything to all.
    How easily the citizens, led by the ladies sub-appeal committee, are persuaded by No.86's denouncement of No.2 as being unmutual. This combined with No.6's speech, "Look at him. An unmutual who desires to deceive you all. Your welfare committee is a tool of those who wish to possess your minds."
    No.6 went on to tell the citizens that they still have a choice. That they could still salvage their rights as individuals. Their rights to truth and free thought. And insisted that they reject this false world of No.2. Which the citizens did of course, such is the persuasiveness and powers of manipulation of No.6.
    This is the second time that No.6 has recently come to the aid of the community, in preventing the assassination of a retiring No.2, and now to bring about the downfall of No.2 who pretends that to the committee No.6 is merely citizens No.6 who will not be tolerated for long. "Public enemy No.6!" Which bodes the question "Why does No.6 care?"

   For almost 46 years of Prisoner appreciation many ideas and theories have been formulated regarding the series. What follows is a sample of those ideas, whys, and wherefores.
    What is the point of The Girl Who Was Death? Well it's a bedtime story. And if the children were born and bred in the village, how could they have any conception of car chases, funfairs or Borehamwood high street? Also no children have been seen in the village before or since the episode The Girl Who Was Death  {tally ho footnote: what about the boy seen in Living In Harmony?}
    In the opening sequence, what was the point of putting colour photographs in his suitcase? Was it to be his holiday destination, a place to run away to, in any case it was an exotic location.
    During the opening sequence of the Prisoner the Prisoner goes through a set of double doors marked with the words "Way Out," which can be interpreted in at least three different ways if we want to find significance in it:
a} It is No.6 being unconventional as always and entering by the exit.
b} It could signify his way out ie, resignation.
c} It may be a comment on how the rest of the series was going to turn out. Viewers cannot say they were not warned.
    {Tally ho footnote: or d}the Prisoner having just parked his Lotus Seven in the underground car park, was simply leaving that said underground car park via the exit!}
    Was the "he's coming along nicely" patient in the hospital during Arrival being conditioned to accept Rover because of the ping-pong ball on the jet of water in front of him? Was he already mad or was this bizarre "treatment" driving him bonkers? {We see him earlier being escorted by a medic and he looks brain-dead}. Plus he's wearing the Prisoners clothes in the 'aversion therapy' room!
 
Be seeing you
