Once Upon a Time

The scene is the Embryo Room where Number 2 takes the ultimate step: Degree Absolute. Degree Absolute is the method whereby one man must break -- either The Prisoner or Number 2 in a macabre interrogation ritual with the personal risk of death for the loser.

Number 2 must find out why The Prisoner has resigned from his confidential post and the two are locked in the Embryo Room. Here, day lengthens into night, night into day ... and day after day the ruthless, penetrating questioning continues, with one man's will pitted against the other's.

One has got to break, and the breaking may well be the end...

Warning: This episode is intense!
