Thanks to “The Vow” – and, in particular, the large collection of videos and photographs in the possession of Mark Vicente, one of the chief whistleblowers of Nxivm, shown in the series – the public has been treated to some rare new views of the Vanguard and his followers.
I took a few screenshots and am pleased to share them with readers with a few comments as the spirit moves me.
Nancy Salzman was the Prefect of Nxivm. A Prefect is usually defined as a school monitor, a student whose job it is to watch over and discipline the other students.
Nancy was that. But she was more. She was ostensibly second in command to Keith Alan Raniere. Starting around 2009, Clare Bronfman became the true second in command of Nxivm.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.
His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg; “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson; “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.
Parlato has been featured prominently on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and acted as lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” He was credited in the Starz docuseries, 'Seduced,' for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
Parlato has appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest, which was ironic since many credit Parlato as being one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
