Number 6 may well have had good reasons to regret his imprisonment. I have been of the opinion that life in The Village is something of a nightmare for the Prisoner. But what if it isn’t a nightmare, but a confirmation of that decision? It might be that the Prisoner is reassuring himself that given a second chance he would do it again. And yet, and yet Number 14, the doctor in ‘A B and c’ interpreted the repetitive action of the Prisoner handing in his letter of resignation over and over again on the wall screen, as an anguish pattern. It might be on the cards that the Prisoner’s resignation was causing him a some pain and distress. He might even be tormented by his act of resignation, living and reliving that moment in his mind, so much so that he actually regretted the decision he made. And probably, given a second chance, he wouldn’t do it again!
Be seeing you
