Assassination
9 June 2015 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Number six(Patrick McGoohan) learns of a plot to assassinate the retiring number two at the handover ceremony(with the new number two) using a bomb created by a watchmaker whose daughter tries to stop him, but "six" becomes concerned that if the plot is carried out, their will be terrible reprisals against the villagers that he feels compelled to stop, and uses the help of rebels, called "jammers" to aid him in this, but the real culprit is literally waiting in the wings for his own nefarious reasons... Confusing episode is among the least in the series because of it, as it feels too different from the norm, but still remains reasonably entertaining.
