Once Upon A time

    The title might have been the opening words of the previous episode, after all any fairytale worth its salt begins with Once Upon A time......... I think I prefer this episode’s working title of ‘Degree Absolute,’ it seems more apt to my mind. After all, the phrase is used in the episode, and we are not being told a story, but witnessing shall we say the deliberations of two men during psychological combat. It has to be either one of them, as Number 2 stipulated, and they are both good men, and yet if they get Number 6 he will be better. Does that mean Number 2’s fate was sealed right from the very beginning? It’s a pity that both men could not survive, but Number 2 brought it on himself. It’s just a pity he could not find another way, but in the end it was the only way. Poor Number 2, he gave his life for what......for what? To try and extract the possible simple reason behind the Prisoner’s resignation? What a thing to have to die for, that’s no reason at all. It was Number 6’s stubbornness which brought about Number 2’s death, he was under so much stress, that his heart couldn’t take it anymore and it just gave out!

Be seeing you
