But then it wasn’t, was it? Three days for Number 2 to extract the reason behind Number 6’s resignation, and to use an un-proved drug to boot! I wonder what it was in Number 6’s life, which had been researched and computed to bring the matter down to three people, A B and C? Number 2 believed Number 6 was going to sell out, now what brought him to that conclusion? But he wanted to know what Number 6 had to sell, and to whom he was going to sell it. It makes you wonder how this particular Number 2 was given the task in the first place, having allowed Number 6 to involve himself in the affair with ‘The General.’ After that calamity, depending on whether or not you personally put ‘The General’ before ‘A B and C.’ Of course in the series it’s the other way around, so perhaps we had best keep to that arrangement of episodes. So, in having proved it wasn’t A or B Number 6 was selling out to Number 2 turned his person to an unknown entity. An unknown man, there being no photograph of him, only two things are known, he is French, and attended Madame Engadine’s celebrated parties, a man who likes impressive offices. As it turned out Number 2 was the man with an impressive office! Well you cannot get more impressive than the office in the Green Dome. It’s, minimalist, functional, and futuristic looking. Poor old Number 2, he underestimated Number 6, that was his only fault. We can only assume that Number 2 was allowed to leave the village like two of his predecessors, but then why bother to bring back a failed Number 2 to the village for such an important experiment as Speed Learn? You would bring someone else in for that surely. So it makes sense that no matter what order you think ‘A B and C’ and ‘The General’ should run in, they should run consecutively. As ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ and ‘Once Upon A Time’ could have done. But for them to be able to do that you have to forget, or ignore certain pieces if dialogue. Like making a piece of the jigsaw fit in order to complete the picture, even if they have to be shaped to fit!
