Storyline

At a tribunal where Number 1 appears initially to be a mechanical eye the Prisoner is informed by the president that he has won the right to be an individual,rather than a number.He will be allowed to leave and is given money for his journey. However he is not allowed to speak. A shadowy figure who resembles the Prisoner would seem to be the actual Number One and Number Six dispenses him - and the assembly - in a rocket.As he leaves he frees Number Two,who has been put on trial,along with Number Two's butler,who has served him throughout and a young man known as Number Forty-Eight. Having dropped off Number Two at the Houses of Parliament the Prisoner returns o his own home,which has Number one on its door. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Was hurriedly produced when Patrick McGoohan was informed the show was being canceled instead of being renewed for a second season. Because of this, he brought Leo McKern back after 13 months following his appearance in The Prisoner: Once Upon a Time (1968). McKern had altered his appearance in the interim and was no longer as hirsute, so McGoohan devised a scene whereby the dead Number 2 would be resurrected by means of a process that required his face being shaved before final resuscitation could be achieved.

Crazy Credits

In all preceding episodes, the final shot of the closing credits consisted of a view of Rover (the balloon) skimming across the water. For this final episode this was replaced by a still image of the completed bicycle that forms during the credits. See more »

It Took Me A Year To Appreciate
27 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the original broadcast of this episode (and the entire series) on CBS the summer it ran in the United States. After the first viewing, I absolutely hated this episode. I wanted factual explanations, a very real and solid down-to-earth conclusion, and Mr. McGoohan provided imagery and allegory. I was perhaps excessively literal in those days, and may have been led astray by the series itself. While the episode title escapes me at the moment, I'm sure the hard core fans will remember: Number 6 wakes up to a deserted Village, fashions a raft, and eventually finds his way back to London. He works out where the Village might be from a variety of clues and returns in a military plane, only to be ejected and returned to the once-again lively Village. I was looking for something building on that episode's "clues", and was vastly disappointed. As some of you may recall, CBS ran the series again the next summer, and I tuned in again. After a year of contemplation (and maybe some maturing), I was able to accept FALL OUT for the fine work that it was and is.
