Recap / The Prisoner E 10 Hammer Into Anvil

Number Six vows to destroy a particularly brutal and sadistic Number Two.
  • Paranoia Gambit: Six acts as if he was planted by Two's superiors and is sending them cryptic messages questioning his loyalty; Two not only tears his hair out trying to follow the trail, but pushes away one colleague after another as untrustworthy. At the end, when Six points out that a loyal man would have left it alone:
    Two: Don't tell them. Don't report me.
    Two: *taking the phone* I have to report a breakdown in control. Number Two needs to be replaced. *beat* Yes, this is Number Two reporting.
