Never mind the badge, what about the blazer? Was it so confusing the first time around? I do not recall it being so. In fact the difference in blazers made it too easy to distinguish between the real Number 6 and the economy pack! In my book it would have been far better to have kept the original idea of having both Number 6’s wearing identical blazers. That way it would have been far more difficult for the viewer to distinguish between the 6’s, and that would have remained right up until the moment when Number 6 was caught trying to escape The Village in the guise of Curtis!
As it is, the change to have Number 6/Curtis wearing a cream blazer, makes a mockery of that Polaroid picture Alison took of Number 6. That picture should have discredited Curtis the moment Alison saw it, except she was betraying Number 6 at that point. And yet it is a point Number 6 himself never picked up on. The fact that Number 6 in the Polaroid is wearing a dark blazer, when Curtis is quite clearly wearing a cream one!
