    Articles have begun popping up in the last hour or so reporting that Mack has been arrested.

    Wow, federal sex trafficking charges, among other things. Also, fisrt time I'v heard Grace Park's name mentioned in this mess, though she wasn't part of the sex cult.

    Calling it now, if Alison can get away with it she'll claim she was brainwashed by Raniere and forced to do all the things they have evidence she did, and she'll offer to testify against him.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    She could act and lie, yeah, but it would make for a better "story" if she said something like "I'm in love and we did nothing wrong" but that would get her her 15 years in jail.

    Reading the indictment it's just prostitution, pimping and black mail. Meh.

    That's going to make a Smallville reunion awkward.

    Alright, who's going to make the obvious joke in dubious taste, here?


    ... By which I mean, a Nicodemus flower joke. What else? :p


    To paraphrase Gore Vidal: this is all sounding a bit like a Meteor Rocks-powered Freak of the Weak story from a bad Smallville episode... or, worse, a good one.

    Minor celebrity part of a sex cult. Pretty sure fan fiction sites will soon be flooded with adult fantasies about this.

    Oh, and Looper will obviously do a video about The True Reasons Hollywood Won't Cast Allison Mack Anymore.

    VICE seems to indicate two BSG'ers: Nikki Clyne (Cally) and Grace Park (Boomer, etc) were also involved, but this article's a few weeks old. This article is a jaw-dropper, if true. I can't imagine anyone's career affected in a positive way by this.
    https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/kzxnqx/all-the-vancouver-actresses-linked-to-an-alleged-sex-cult

    Since 2006 the organization would bring on several Vancouver-bred actresses including Hawaii Five-O’s Grace Park, Smallville’s Kristin Kreuk and Battlestar Galactica’s Nicki Clyne. Edmondson personally recruited Clyne, who reportedly remains faithful to Raniere even after his arrest. Though Park and Kreuk have cut ties with the organization, former members say their past roles within Nxivm were undeniably significant.
    The branding some of the women received is quite gruesome.

    I just saw a story about this yesterday, and I'm still trying to wrap my around it. It's just so weird.

    I doubt Clark will come flying to her rescue this time around. :confused:

    This case could be added to Chloe's Wall of Weird.

    This tweet from two years ago somehow bobbed to the surface today:

    "amazing women's movement."

    Oh dear, oh dear. Several 'Vancouver bred actresses'. Who will be next to be implicated, I wonder?

    Mack was released into the custody of her parents after posting a $5 million bail.
