In the old and new versions of The Prisoner, Six wants Two to answer the burning question: Who is No. 1?
In AMC's updated six-part version of the '60s cult classic, an answer comes from a schoolgirl in Monday's Episode 3. Her rote response sounds as if it's had been drummed into her head:
"There is no No. 1. There never has been and there never will be. The concept of the No. 2 is an act of humility. The title reminds us all that we are all public servants, even No. 2. No one is No. 1."
(A rather obvious spoiler warning: if you haven't seen the endings of the original or new versions, you may not want to read on.)
In the original, viewers had to wait until the 17th and final episode to get some semblance of an answer to the No. 1 question. Even then, it was open to interpretation.
