Episode 5 - The schizoid man
Number Six awakes one morning in a different Village apartment and discovers things have changed. He has a new appearance, has become left-handed and has a different taste in foods. He is no longer Number Six but now Number Twelve. A doppleganger of Number Six has been brought to the Village in an attempt to crack him. A bruised fingernail is the only clue that can help the real Number Six.

Episode 6 - The general
"Speedlearn" is a subliminal process for educating the population of the Village, developed by a Professor with the ability to be abused by Number Two and with help of Number Six intends to destroy the General. After their attempt fails Number Two takes Number Six to meet the General.

Episode 7 - Many happy returns
Number Six awakes to a deserted Village. He realises that he has the perfect opportunity to escape his captors. He builds a raft and sets sail away from the Village. During his voyage he comes across some gunrunners who steal his remaining supplies and leave him to drown. He is eventually washed up on the south coast of England. He manages to get back to London to find a "Mrs Butterworth" living in his house. The next day is Number Six's birthday and Mrs Butterworth has a surprise planned for him.

Episode 8 - Dance of the dead
Number Six discovers a dead man washed up on the Village beach. He finds a wallet and a radio set in the dead man's jacket. He hides the body in a cave and later tries the radio. Number Six later returns to the body with a life-belt and sets it afloat with a rescue note, although he is watched by a former colleague, Dutton. Number Two has been using Dutton to obtain information on Number Six but soon thinks Dutton is expendable. Number Six receives an invitation to the Village carnival where he meets Peter Pan and Little Bo-Peep.
