Not So Easy as A,B,C
17 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
