Susie (Ksenia Solo) about to remove the sunglasses that conceal the black eye she got from her ‘associate’ (whose name we still don’t know)
Because Susie (Ksenia Solo) rescued Mimi from Lieutenant Fuller in the previous episode, she gets a visit from Captain Quinn (Michael Malarkey), who is suspicious because, though Susie says she lived in New York City, he can find no record of her being there. (One would think Soviet spies would have created at least a flimsy fake background record, but apparently they did not.) She also gets a black eye from her “associate”. She doesn’t get upset about any of this, but instead keeps her appointment with Quinn the next morning and asks him out for a drink. Continue reading →
Mimi’s stalker turns out to be Lieutenant Fuller (Matt O’Leary), who might be suffering from exposure to alien technology.
Mimi‘s stalker turns out to be Lieutenant Fuller (Matt O’Leary), the guy who chased a UFO with his plane in Episode One. He has been following Mimi in an effort to speak to her husband. Fuller is not a well man, and when Mimi does not humour him in his paranoia, he decides she is one of his enemies. Fortunately, Susie has been listening in through that bug she had planted. (The mike they installed was quite sensitive. It picks up Mimi’s kitchen conversation clearly, though it is located in the study.) Susie shows up with a gun and chases Fuller away. Her timely arrival makes Mimi a bit suspicious, but she decides not to question her rescuer’s motives, at least not very closely. Continue reading →
After an American fighter pilot engages a UFO in the skies over Fargo, North Dakota, the U.S. Air Force hires J. Allen Hynek, a professor of astrophysics at Ohio State University, to debunk UFO reports. (They tell him he is supposed to find out the truth, but it quickly becomes clear that his job is to discredit the reports, no matter the evidence.) It also becomes clear that there are other players involved. Someone attempts to force him off the road as he is driving home from his first UFO investigation, and the culprit flees into an abandoned amusement park. Hynek gets out of his car and follows the unknown fellow in there. (This seems rather a dangerous thing for a university professor to do, but maybe in 1948 people were less cautious about such things.) Hynek finds what is apparently an interrogation or indoctrination room. He says nothing about this to the Air Force guy he is working with (Captain Michael Quinn, played by Michael Malarkey), whom he has quickly learned to distrust. Continue reading →
