Preview: The Vow Episode 8

Directed by Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer, ‘The Vow’ is an extremely intriguing documentary series that gives us an in-depth look at NXIVM (pronounced nex-ee-um), a cult that dominated the news headlines a couple of years ago for its heinous workings. Done via retellings from its former members, we see exactly how this controversial self-help group managed to rope in unsuspecting individuals with its manipulative practices, and how they eventually decided to bring down the organization after learning about the secret sex-trafficking sorority within it – DOS. Led by Keith Raniere and his “partners,” his inner-circle, this sorority, apparently, to date, operates as a sex cult that involves master-slave relationships, brandings, and a lifetime commitment – a vow. Curious to know what will happen in the next episode? Here’s what we know.

The Vow Episode 7 Recap

‘The Dossier’ gives us an in-depth look into Keith Rainere’s professional beginnings and all his cons there, all the while following Catherine Oxenberg and the former NXIVM members as they work towards getting actual legal action against Keith and his organization. Delving into the past, we see how, before he abused women in a cult, Keith manipulated people with the help of a multilevel-marketing company, a pyramid scheme, that he began decades ago. This time, again, a woman named Toni is left behind to tell us her tale and highlight how Keith and Nancy Salzman, her former therapist, went from being schemers to the Vanguard and the Prefect, respectively. At the same time, we see Catherine working with Frank Parlato – creator of The Frank Report and a former NXIVM publicist – to gather intense evidence against NXIVM and its members for the then-New York Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman.
