'Project Blue Book': The Foo Fighters, Susie's secret, and Fuller's maddening story about UFOs set the plot for episode 5
The government does not want the Air Force to speak about what they have seen, but these war veterans are not going to remain silent for long.
'Project Blue Book' has been maintaining a perfect balance between order and disorder. While on one hand there is Dr. J Allen Hynek (played Aidan Gillen) and Captain Michael Quinn (played by Michael Malarkey) who are trying to put things in order by investigating people who have reported the sightings, on the other hand, there is the US Air Force which is literally creating mass hysteria by not revealing the truth to the people.
Episode 4 already saw the aftermath of this disorder, as several war veterans began to speak up about their experience with the strange flying-disc like objects in the sky. This is where Episode 5 picks from, and it all begins with a code. Following the true incident of Foo Fighters, the episode will bring into account the story of all the war veterans who were taken prisoners by the US Air Force for reporting their sightings on UFOs. As the episode is actually set to throw a darker shade on the Project Blue Book conspiracy, here are the top three things you can expect from Episode 5:
1. The Foo Fighters
Taking up yet another true incident, 'The Foo Fighters' will bring into focus the war veterans' experience with sightings of strange objects. Their reports had claimed that these flying objects traveled at great speeds and were able to make maneuvers to keep up with American planes. While the Americans feared that it could be yet another German invasion, there was evidence that pointed otherwise. The strange objects in the sky which would often appear to be chasing their aircraft were nicknamed Foo Fighters after a popular cartoon of the time called 'Smoky Stover'. Although they occurred across Europe and America, the Allies discovered that the Axis powers had also seen the objects.

2. Susie Miller has a Secret
Susie has been quite a mysterious character ever since she was introduced. Her past and her story continue to remain under covers as she keeps changing her stories about what she was before she arrived in Arizona. She certainly has a motive behind befriending Mimi as she has already revealed her keen interest in Dr. J Allen Hynek and the work that he is involved with. Episode 4 saw Susie helping Mimi encounter Fuller, who trespassed into Hynek's house, in order to warn Mimi about what Hynek was involved in. As the investigation into the trespassing continues in Episode 5, Susie will probably find herself trapped by the authorities but chances are she will surely pave her way out.
3. The Fuller Escape
Project Blue Book began its investigation into the existence of the UFOs after Fuller had reported his other-worldly encounter in Episode 1. Now deemed to be a war veteran who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Fuller has been trying to convey his message about the flying disc to Hynek. However, he has not succeeded at it yet since the US Air Force does not want him to leak any information about the sightings. We can expect that in Episode 5, Fuller will actually go out of his way so that he is heard but will that serve his cause? He is already being suspected of suffering from mental illness, and maybe this time he will actually involve in an act that will establish him as a soldier heavily damaged by PTSD.
'Project Blue Book' returns with Episode 5 on February 5.
