A life time fan and Prisonerologist of the 1960's series 'the Prisoner', a leading authority on the subject, a short story writer, and now Prisoner novelist.
I was wondering the same thing recently when viewing the episode for the umpteenth time. Possibly he was told this by 'The Woman' ( Virginia Maskell ) when she gave him the Electro-Pass in 'Arrival'. That helicopter pilot she knew may have been the talkative type. Its just a wild guess. Best wishes, Zokko
Hello Zokko, Well why not? Its as good an idea or interpretation as any other. And that's another good point you raise, the curious way to credit Virginia Maskell as "The Woman," why not use the number she was given in the episode, Number 9? The use of "The Woman" makes me think of how Sherlock Holmes referred to Irene Adler as "The Woman" in the Sherlock Holmes story 'A Scandal In Bohemia.'Very best regardsDavidBCNU
