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.

Number six(Patrick McGoohan) wakes up one morning and finds to his astonishment that the village is completely deserted! Suspicious of course, he nonetheless decides to take advantage of the situation and make his escape, once again building a small boat from scratch, taking to the open sea, and making his way back to London, which takes many days and nights, but the multi-skilled and steel-willed "six" survives this ordeal and reaches home, but once again finds that this was of course too good to be true, and turns out to be not the birthday present he had fought and hoped for...Memorable episode has a familiar scenario but still packs quite a punch, with a most effective closing scene.
