Storyline

Yet another Number two is retiring to make way for a successor,who will receive the hand-over at a ceremony. Number Six hears that a bomb made by the Watch-maker is to be detonated at the ceremony, killing the retiring Number two and, with the Watch-maker's daughter, goes to warn him. However it turns out that the intended victim is somebody else altogether and their death could spell calamity for the whole village. Number Six must stop this plan. Written by don @ minifie-1

Assassination
9 June 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Number six(Patrick McGoohan) learns of a plot to assassinate the retiring number two at the handover ceremony(with the new number two) using a bomb created by a watchmaker whose daughter tries to stop him, but "six" becomes concerned that if the plot is carried out, their will be terrible reprisals against the villagers that he feels compelled to stop, and uses the help of rebels, called "jammers" to aid him in this, but the real culprit is literally waiting in the wings for his own nefarious reasons... Confusing episode is among the least in the series because of it, as it feels too different from the norm, but still remains reasonably entertaining.
