A new Number Two, anxious to find out why the Prisoner resigned, uses a 'Special Machine' to infiltrate and order Number Six's dreams, introducing, over a period of three nights, three separate characters to determine which one he was working with. Number Six, however, cottons on and uses his dreams to spoil the plan. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

This is the only episode in which during the opening credits Number Two identifies himself as 'I am Number Two' instead of 'The new Number Two', which strongly suggests that this episode is an immediate sequel to 'The General', especially since Colin Gordon plays Number Two in both episodes.

For me, this is a great episode. The current Number Two is under the gun from, I assume, Number One to get Six to say why he resigned. He could be ruined if he doesn't produce. An attractive female doctor has developed a method whereby brain waves can be projected into video. This means that a dream sequence can be viewed. She also has the ability to introduce elements into the dream so it can be seen how that person will react. The two take Number Six back to a party in France where he has the possibility of making deal with enemy agents. He is drugged and taken to a lab and while unconscious begins to mentally tell the story leading up to his appearance in the Village. The bad guys bring in two spies to tempt him and he passes muster both times. That means that since Number Two is convinced there was betrayal, the third time will be the charm. This is a great episode with a wonderful conclusion.
