All the surveillance cameras in The Village are hidden, camouflaged, built into stone busts of prominent people and strategically positioned around The Village. So why is it that this one particular camera is un-camouflaged, or built into a stone bust? If it had been there would not have been the opportunity of the Rook disconnecting it and stealing the camera. And in that lies the answer! The next question is, was this on view camera a contrivance on the part of Number 2, thereby affording the opportunity of the Rook to steal it? And if so why not the entire episode as a contrivance to once again test Number 6, after all there have been more elaborate plans put in motion against Number 6 than this one!
