Looking at what happened afterwards one must say no, it wasn't an oversight. Hardly anything in the Village happens by chance. - BCNU!
Hello Arno, Yes, I agree. I've always thought that door was left open on purpose. Number 2 using Number 6 to test their own efficientcy!Very kind regardsDavidBCNU
Given that no inmate or prisoner could ever really escape either by sea or land it would seem unnecessary to secure the doors and windows over night. On the other hand, any escape attempt would cause a certain amout of cost, wouldn't it. Tracking the fugitive, getting him back, perhaps treat him in the hospital. And perhaps that's the reason behind the shut-down. - BCNU!
Hello Arno, That's true enough. But there could be another reason for keeping the citizens heavily sedated, the reason for the curfew, that No.2 didn't want them observing any night time activity, like the arrival of the milk, the ice cream, the potatoes, and the aspirins!Very kind regardsDavidBCNU
