It was recently suggested to me that the Stranger, or as I like to call him, the Man With No Name in 'Living In Harmony,' was shot. In fact it was suggested that the Man With No Name actually died! He No.6 didn't die, technically he wasn't even shot!
The reason why No.6 could separate fact from fantsay so quickly was because that gun shot from the Judge woke No.6 up from his hallucinatory state of mind. In other words one cannot die in a dream!
Be seeing you
