'Project Blue Book': Fans cannot wait for things to get romantic and steamy between Susie and Mimi
Susie and Mimi have been quite the trendsetters on the show, and their very modern outlook towards life and things have made them quite the interesting pair.
History Channel's 'Project Blue Book' might have seen a steady fall in its ratings- which went from 2.1 million viewers in the premiere episode to 1.4 million viewers for the latest episode but that doesn't mean fans are bored with the show.
The show has been following some reportedly true incidents of UFO sightings in the US that had created a mass hysteria during the post-World War II era. Investigating this cause is Aiden Gillen as Dr. J Allen Hynek and Michael Malarkey as Captain Michael Quinn. Laura Mennell plays Dr Hynek's wife, Mimi Hynek, and Ksenia Solo plays Susie Miller, a friend of Mimi's and a rather mysterious character.
While on one hand, we have a perplexing relationship between Hynek and Quinn, who are in charge of investigating the reported sightings, on the other hand, we have a rather confounding dynamic between Mimi and Susie. Since the time that the two met, Susie has been depicting a secret affection towards Mimi. Mimi, who has never really been with anyone else other than her husband, Hynek, was interested in Susie for the simple fact that Susie was a modern woman. She drove a car, she hung out at the beatnik bars, and above all, she is a woman who has traveled across the sea by herself, and has been living alone (well, that's how Mimi perceives her).
Mimi was even more intrigued when she discovered that Susie knew how to swing a gun, and soon Susie began to teach Mimi how to use a gun. In that scene, where the women practice aiming in the forest we get a glimpse of a romantic sequence between the two. Fans are immensely interested to know if there is something to these women's relationship. A fan on Reddit exclaimed, "That gun scene made me realize how much I want a lesbian scene between them!" Another fan stated, "I just want them to kiss." A fan on Twitter also expressed her excitement about their relationship.
The fan stated, "Oh. My. God! Watching them makes my heart flutter Watching Susie and Mimi grow closer over time is amazing. Seeing their relationship continue to develop is beautiful. Their chemistry is undeniable. I love how they’ve changed each other for the better and helped each other grow." Another fan mentioned, "What can I say. Two beautiful women and the tension between them has got my heart racing." Mimi and Susie have already been quite the trendsetters on the show, be it their clothes, their '50s way of puffing on a cigarette or the cars that the women hang out in.
It is yet not clear if Susie truly feels for Mimi the way she has portrayed herself to be but it will certainly cause some irrevocable damage to their relationship when Susie's identity as a Russian spy is exposed. Until then, we would really love to see some instances of romance between these two women.
