E02 · Truth Wins

As the students fall deeper under Larry's spell, they follow him to New York City, where he co-opts an apartment uptown; as Larry grows more controlling and even violent, the students' realities are upended.

After Larry is evicted, the cult relocates to New Jersey, where Larry commits his most hideous crimes yet; when he is finally arrested, the two women closest to him choose disparate paths to survive.

This is actually 3 episodes, but I couldn't find a write up for the 3rd...

First episode is an interesting how-to guide for aspiring narcissists. It's pretty awesome the way Larry sets up his daughter to make sure his reputation precedes him.

Second episode gets really dark in the second half. Apparently the third is worse so I haven't watched it yet.

It's interesting how many cults there are in the world where the vulnerable are preyed upon by narcissistic psychopaths. It's also interesting to note that psychopaths represent about 1% of the population and could be thought of as essentially sub-human parasites, of a sort...
