For a season and a half of HISTORY's Project Blue Book, one of the show's big mysteries has been the shadowy fellow in a black fedora (dubbed 'Unseen') who has been following Dr. J. Allen Hynek (Aidan Gillen) in his investigations. Hynek (and the audience) finally gets a better sense of who this man is, and what he wants, in "The Men in Black" episode.
Identifying himself as William (Ian Tracey), he kidnapped Hynek at the end of "Hopkinsville" and takes the good doctor up north to Maury Island, the site of a famous incident that involved men in black and UFOs. As that duo collects clues about the event that haunts William, the rest of the hour unfolds with Quinn enlisting the help of CIA Agent Daniel Banks (Jerod Haynes) to try and find his Blue Book partner before harm comes to him.
**SPOILER WARNING: There are spoilers for Project Blue Book's "The Men in Black" episode below!**
In this week's brand new Project Blue Book: The Official Podcast, SYFY WIRE senior producer and host Tara Bennett welcomes back creator/EP David O'Leary and actors Aidan Gillen (Hynek) and 'Unseen' himself, Ian Tracey.
O'Leary downloads a lot of fascinating information about the actual Maury Island case, his own past regarding ESP, and how this episode doesn't hold back on moving the mythology forward in a big way. Aidan and Ian add stories of racing around Vancouver, and theories about who the mythic Men in Black really are.
