Why You Should Be Afraid of Dory’s Cult Leader Persona on Search Party

And, no, Dory isn’t just playing a role, as Shawkwat noted, “she really believes that she’s seen the truth, and I think one person’s conviction can go a long way.”

Expressing a similar sentiment, Reynolds highlighted that, this time around, Dory “ends up getting power in people’s ear in a way that she hasn’t.”

As for Hagner? “I think it’s the most terrifying after watching The Vow and that stuff,” she relayed, “of the type of person that’s, like, ‘I’m here to do good.’ And then, there’s malicious intent or whatever it is.”

For those unfamiliar with The Vow, the true crime docu-series takes a closer look at Keith Raniere—who was found guilty in 2019 of racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, forced labor conspiracy, sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and attempted sex trafficking—his self-help company, NXIVM, and the turmoil those who joined the business faced.
