    This is SPECTACULAR. OMG!
    The Prisoner is given a drug to knock him out, and is taken to a laboratory where Number 2 and assistant No.14 are going to give him a dose of a new drug to.open his mind and invade his dreams. The Prisoner's dreams are relayed onto a wall monitor as visual images, so we can see his dreams. Number 2 believes The Prisoner was going to sell out, his secrets to the highest bidder, if of course he hadn't been kidnapped by The Village.
    But what did he have to sell?, and who was the purchaser?
    The prisoner in the lab , helpless on the couch is fed images of a party in Paris that he once attended, filmed in secret , and now electronically fed into his mind. His dreams are being manipulated and the result available for viewing on the big screen. Various characters that Number 2 thinks he might have sold out to are fed into the Prisoner's mind, for him to dream about.
    A bizarre idea, brilliantly executed. Things get complicated when No.2 and 14 themselves get into the dream.
    And when The Prisoner realises his dreams are being manipulated the fun starts. He dreams , knowing No.2 is watching and can have fun leading Number 2 astray.

    In a brilliant finale The Prisoner dreams that he enters the laboratory to see 2 and 14, who are watching in er...the laboratory. Watching dream versions of themselves.
