Number six(Patrick McGoohan) is drugged and taken to village headquarters where the new number two(played by Colin Gordon) is determined to find out why he resigned from service, and thinks that a new experiment that will infiltrate his dreams and fool him into revealing his motive by creating an elaborate scenario giving him three choices in three days of possible agents he may have been selling out to, but the steel-willed "six" is on to this, and turns the tables on them in clever fashion... Entertaining episode really shows what an exceptional man "six" is by defeating this number two's plan, yet still remains a prisoner at the end.
