Quote For The Day

    “They’ve heard, they are aware, and they don’t need anyone’s help!”
               {Number 6 – It’s Your Funeral}
But apparently they do, they need Number 6’s help. That’s why they selected him, to give the plan credibility, without which the plan might backfire, which of course it did!
    “I won’t go for it” Number 6 shouted at the ceiling “Whatever it is, so you may as well stop trying,” and he showed Number 50 the door. But Number 50 fell in a dead faint, on time and according to schedule. And if there’s one chink in Number 6’s armour it’s that he cannot resist a damsel in distress. Even though it’s been a case of many times bitten forever shy, there he is sitting over the unconscious Number 50 lying on the floor, a glass of water in his hand waiting for her to wake up. Number 6 has fallen for it again, despite having been betrayed several times by women. But for once there is no question of betrayal, as they are on the same side but need to stop the assassination of Number 2 for two different reasons. On the one hand, to stop mass reprisals {a never to be forgotten deterrent} carried out on innocent people if indeed anyone in The Village is innocent. And on the other it’s a very personal reason, simply for Monique to save her father from making a grave mistake which will cost him his life.
    As we witness in the episode Plan Division Q was a complete and utter failure {much to the new Number 2’s annoyance} not because Number 6 failed to give credibility to the plan, but because of his involvement in the first place. No doubt the watchmaker-Number 51 and his daughter went back to living their ordinary and mundane lives, while Number 2 could look forward to his own retirement one day, sooner than he might have imagined. As for the proposed reprisals, they appear to have been instantly forgotten with the failure of the execution of Number 2. But there is another way of looking at ‘It’s Your Funeral,’ it might have all been staged for Number 6’s benefit. To see if he could counter such an assassination plot, once he had been manipulated into taking the action he took. So much for “I won’t go for it, whatever it is.....” sometimes I think he can’t help himself, eh Number 6?

Be seeing you
