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
