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 →
The Lubbock County Sheriff (Peter Skagen) showing Quinn and Hynek a truck deformed by an encounter with a UFO. (Skagen was Shorty in the first three episodes of WYNONNA EARP)
Someone is following Mimi and not being at all surreptitious about it. A guy with his hat pulled down over his eyes turns up at the hardware store as Mimi is attempting to buy a pre-fab bomb shelter, and appears again later, standing in front of the Hynek residence while Mimi and Susie are assembling the shelter the next day. He gives the impression tha he wants to talk to Mimi privately. He does not telephone her, so he might be aware that Susie’s associate had bugged the place earlier.
When Susie (Ksenia Solo) visits Mimi this time she does not use the doorbell, but instead noisily rattles the doorknob as though expecting the door to be unlocked. The two women apologize to each other and are friends again. Mimi (Laura Mennell) says the reason she abandoned Susie at the beatnik club was because if she were seen there it might cause problems for her husband. Susie demonstrates some carpentry skills as she helps Mimi build that bomb shelter, and we learn a little about her “My father always wanted a son,” she tells Mimi. “I never volunteered, but he made sure I knew how to swing a hammer.”Continue reading →
