Too Many Twos!
20 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again Number Six must put aside his own agenda to protect the village. Since they are mindless followers, it is necessary sometimes to look out for them. In this episode an attractive young woman knows that her father is somehow complicit in an assassination attempt on Number Two, the village leader. If he were to be assassinated it would go badly for the villagers. His successor could bring harsh reprisals against the citizens. He would have the authority to act more cruelly than was previously done. Number Six warns the man currently holding the Number Two position but this guy is actually the heir apparent to the one that has been away. He is orchestrating everything, including discrediting Number Six who is often looked up to by the citizenry. If he is made to sound crazy enough, the villagers will discount him. The struggle is to find the specifics of the plot and prevent it from happening. Better the enemy you know than the one who inherits the throne.
