He's an old, old friend who never gives up, which in turn makes No.6 his own worst enemy!
No.6 is not a man to simply sit about to wait and see what happens, which was the other alternative for him that morning when he woke up to find The Village deserted. He is a man of Action, that's Action with a capital "A". Neither is he a man who can simply accept his freedom having once escaped the clutches of The Village. He needs to know which side runs The Village, if not with his own people, then elsewhere, presumably meaning on the other side of the Iron Curtain. He has questions, and wants to know who it is that had him taken away his freedom and incarcerated him in The Village. More than that he has to know where The Village is, and yet more, he actually goes back there, and it is this which makes No.6 his own worst enemy! However having returned to The Village, he did keep half a promise once made to No.2. That he would escape and come back.
So the Prisoner knows the location of The Village, and it’s not behind the Iron Curtain in
thirty miles from the Polish border! But little good it does No.6 to know that! Lithuania
Be seeing you
