Number Six finds himself in a western town called Harmony,which is run by the Judge, with the Kid,a young gunslinger, as his murderous assistant. The Prisoner would appear to have been the town sheriff,who resigned and refused to carry a gun. The Kid leads the townsfolk in an outbreak of killing with Kathy, a saloon girl befriended by Number Six, as one of the victims. This persuades Number Six to take up arms but then finds that he has been enacting a role play in the village to make him more disposed to killing and the Judge is yet another Number Two. The result ends in tragedy. Written by

Did You Know?
After hearing that Patrick McGoohan
was practicing his quick-draw while filming Ice Station Zebra
(1968), Alexis Kanner
immediately started practicing himself, eventually becoming so proficient that he beat McGoohan to the draw in the take used in the episode. The two stars reportedly watched the scene frame-by-frame to settle the debate of who was faster once and for all. Owners of the DVD can confirm Kanner's greater speed independently. See more
The Judge says Number 6 has no charge against him, he was only being held in protective custody. Wouldn't there be a charge for stealing a horse? See more
Welcome to Harmony, stranger.
