Project Blue Book 1.5: A Theory

A taut, tight episode 1.5 of Project Blue Book - may be my favorite so far - in which Hynek and Quinn chase down numbers and radio broadcasts and the mysterious Fuller, who meets his end by self-immolation.  Harding - more about the General below - thinks someone set off the kill switch in Fuller's head.  We know that Hynek did - unintentionally - by showing Fuller the diagram.

We also learn that there's a group of pilots - the Foo Fighters, from which the episode gets its title - who saw strange things in the sky in 1944.   They now believe they are in touch with the extra-terrestrials, a belief which Hynek (not Quinn this time), dispels.  Nice touch having Hynek being the one to shoot down incorrect beliefs about UFOs.   I also liked the possible commencing of seduction of Quinn by Susie the blond Soviet spy.

But let's get back to Harding.  Here's his picture.  You tell me: doesn't he look like an alien?  If he is, that changes everything.  It means at least he, and likely General Valentine, are not just trying to cover up extra-terrestrials on Earth.  Indeed, not even just working with them.  But ... they are part of the invasion from the stars themselves.

If that's true, if this story of Project Blue Book is the aliens are not only already here, but in our government, how far does this go?  Is von Braun, the focus of last week's episode, an extra-terrestrial, too?   Or, put otherwise, who isn't?  Likely not Hynek or his wife, or Quinn, but maybe Susie or her husband (now separated, or so she says).   No reason the Soviets shouldn't have extra-terrestrials amongst them, if we do.

We'll see what transpires in the weeks ahead.
