Well it would have been Number 2’s funeral had Number 6 not been involved. In fact that’s another plan to involve Number 6 which didn’t succeed! As it is the new Number 2 can expect some rough treatment when it comes to his turn one day, when that day comes. But I’ve never understood the need for Plan Division Q, why not just get it over and done with without a lot of rigmarole? Just round up the known malcontents and have a purge of The Village. As it is it appears to be a test for Number 6, to see if he can actually stop the execution of the retiring Number 2. Well he passed that little test if that was the case. But there’s couple of things I don’t understand, does Number 6 really buy a bar of soap every day? And when did Number 6 construct that private gymnasium in the woods? It must have been sometime between the end of ‘Hammer Into Anvil,’ and the beginning of ‘It’s Your Funeral,’ evidence of action between the episodes to which we the humble observer are not privy!
Be seeing you
