I like the way the President offered No.6 ultimate power, to lead them or go. Had things not turned out the way they did, no doubt the President was going to usurp No.1 with his twin No.6, that might have been the plan all along. No.1 the worst of man, so why not replace him with a man of a different calibre, a better man, moral man, to make a better Village! But the mistake was No.6 saw his future, and rejected it when he let the crystal ball slip from his hands. His future as a Prisoner, because he wouldn’t accept what he was. Two halves of the same person are brought together, on a physical level it makes one wonder how they became separated in the first place. Perhaps the scientists in The Village did it, and they put the wrong one on the throne, whilst the other was like Philippe, locked away but without being forced to wear an iron mask!
Be seeing you
