PROJECT BLUE BOOK – Season 2 Episode 4 – SPOILERS
Susie (Ksenia Solo), who has been directed to arrange Quinn’s kidnapping, attempts to sedate him with an injection. (Putting knockout drops in his coffee might have been easier.) Her efforts fail when Quinn is called away to Hopkinsville, some 600 kilometers southwest of Columbus. Unhappy with the failed abduction, Daria (Sofia Milos) and two of her thugs take Susie (aka Mishka) into the Ohio countryside and show her a shallow grave that has been prepared for her. Daria then assures Susie that she will recruit her daughter in the same way that she recruited her, something Susie clearly doesn’t want. Then she tells the goon with the shovel to “finish it”.

This is further evidence that Daria does not really want Mishka dead. Continue reading →
