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 don @ minifie-1

If Kathy has enough breath to give a rather easy and wordy good-bye, considering she was just strangled, she would not have died. See more »

It was a good idea but the big question is this: They use the word "hallucination" after No. 6 wakes up (at the end) to explain it but the Western Town was there -- it existed -- it wasn't an "hallucination." So all that was needed was to set up the story for us, the viewers, so that we can enjoy No. 6 in this Western situation. A little kidnap, common enough in the village, an injection, also common, and then No. 6 wakes up the sheriff of Harmony. Get some good existential vibes going and maybe some attempt while No. 6 is there to get that "info" out of his head and there'd be a good story told. It was, instead, No. 6 "in the West" and non stop clichés.
