Why is the electrician in ‘Arrival’ the same man as the gardener? That was the question asked. One answer came that they are clones, or doppelgangers, another that they are twins. For myself I much prefer the latter answer.
Yet one person wrote this solution to the question many, many years ago. The electrician and the gardener are one and the same person. That this may be a scheme to further confuse and disorientate new arrivals to The Village. Once the Prisoner had gone out for his walk, the electrician could be transported through the underground tunnels that we know exist beneath The Village, but he’d have to be quick, to then pop up in the woods as a gardener.
“Careful sir, they’re new plants.”
