Storyline

Number Six wakes up to find the village deserted and seizes his opportunity to make a raft and escape. He eventually gets back to London and reports to his superiors. However, it's not long before he is rather cruelly returned to the village where Mrs. Butterworth, a middle-aged lady whom he met in London, is wearing a Number 2 badge and preparing to serve him a birthday cake bearing six candles.

Some Bad Choices, Certainly

Number Six takes an incredible journey away from the village. He ends up in London, back to the home in which he lived. A Mrs. Butterworth is living in his old home and willingly aids him in his quest to return to his former life. His route to freedom is quite a tour de force where he risks life and limb to return to England. He must overcome a couple of pirates and take their boat, almost being shot in the aftermath. There are so many coincidences and things work out in such a pat way, that at times it seems to be too good to be true. After so many things having disappointed him in the past, it bothers me a bit that he is so trusting of authority. I also need to wonder how everything could be so precisely orchestrated, not just in the village, which is a massive undertaking, but in London, where chance seems to play such a significant part. Finally, there is a question of why. In past episodes there is an end game. This one is abject cruelty. I guess it was important for him to become nothing return to his number.
