They Do Not Like Failure Here!
With the command of “Orange Alert”
activated by Number 2 himself, by pressing a button on a control panel, he releases
a segment of the Guardian from a containment area somewhere on the seabed. Then
having reached the surface it skims across the water in hot pursuit of Number 6
and Nadia, having escaped The Village aboard their coracle. How did the
Guardian know what the target was? Perhaps it was instinctive, certainly no-one
could have told it what its intended target was. Unless the intended target was
somehow conveyed to the Guardian through the command of Orange Alert, otherwise
while out at sea the Guardian could have attacked an innocent fishing boat from
Braniewo! So where does the failure come in? Oh
I forgot to write, that this is the only time the Guardian fails to retrieve
escaping prisoners, unless of course you count what happened in ‘Fall Out!’
