Measure For Measure

   Measure for measure. Meaning that is, when a person commits a crime (or sins), he or she should be made to pay, either by making some sort of restitution or by suffering an amount that's equal to the suffering he or she has caused. Something akin to “an eye for an eye.”  
    Number 6 extracted his vengeance on no fewer than two separate occasions. The first for the suicide of Number 73 seen at the beginning of Hammer Into Anvil, for which he holds Number 2 responsible. In that he hounded Number 73 until she could not stand any more of his interrogation, driving her in fact to commit suicide by jumping out of that hospital window.
   Then in ‘Living In Harmony’ Cathy/No.22 a saloon girl who was brutally strangled to death by the Kid, twice! This made the stranger, the man with no name – Number 6, put on his gun and face the Kid in a gun fight who he out-draws and guns down in the street.

    On both occasions Number 6 takes the law into his own hands. Although he doesn’t kill anyone in ‘Hammer Into Anvil,’ he does manage to drive Number 2 to a nervous breakdown. And ironically Number 8 {above} is driven to commit suicide, not by Number 6, but by the Judge because of his abuse towards the Kid!

Be seeing you
