Thought For The Day

    There are few No.2’s who leave the village with their reputations in tact, this No.2 is I believe the exception to the rule.
    During ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ his only task concerning No.6 was to see that he and Nadia escaped the village unhindered. Obviously the plan didn’t originate from him, as he told Nadia that they were using the wrong approach. So no blame for the plan’s failure can be laid at his door, Nadia told him that he did his best and she would stress that in he report. Had it been anyone other than No.6, the plan might have worked.
   Apparently this No.2 was allowed to leave the village, well we assume he was allowed to leave the village because in ‘Once Upon A Time’ he accuses No.1 of having him brought back to the village something he was far from happy about. When he finally returned to
London in ‘Fall Out,’ still dressed in village attire, he looks thoughtful outside the Houses of Parliament, it makes me wonder if he is expecting some embarrassing questions about where he has been, and about his actions against the village. But he need not have worried, as a little later we see him dressed in bowler hat and business suit returning to the House of Lords, happy and relieved to be back in his old position and free of the village once and for all, and probably just happy to be alive. However I imagine that little scene in ‘Fall Out’ is the second occasion when No.2 returned to the House of Lords, the first occasion would have been when he was allowed to leave the village after the conclusion of ‘The Chimes of Big Ben.’

Be seeing you
