When in ‘Arrival’ the Prisoner attempts to escape The Village by taxi, he is symbolically overcome by his own fears, in having confronted them by attacking the membranic Guardian. However in having attacked The Guardian, the Prisoner soon found it was a battle he could not win, because of the Guardian's balloon-like qualities, in offering no resistance!
The Guardian serves and protects the community of The Village. And when someone or something threatens that community, it acts for the good of The Village. Like the immune system attacking an antibody!
