But the biggest blow came when Harry had to watch his ex-wife Eleanor Sarah Clarke get gunned down and die. In trying to bring her killers to justice, he hits roadblocks because of her involvement with an ongoing FBI investigation.
He wanted to really honor those and really, really lean into them and not just toss them off as you know, an easy twist or an easy resolution. As she walks to her car, two helmeted people on a motorcycle whizz by and shoot her. So, she was totally into it. The event also occurs in Episode 4, which allows for Bosch and her daughter Maddie Madison Lintz to truly have time to process her death and mourn her.
It felt like a good, really emotional, very different kind of season. But, I kind of really was attracted to the idea that we do that in a season, that we would see, not just a main character die, which is always startling but to really deal with the consequences of that and the aftermath, the emotional aftermath of that and how that might bear down on the detective and affect his ability to do the job. I really wanted to feel the ripple effect of it. The writers, L. Johnson and Shaz Bennett did a great job of setting that in motion in the second half of the episode.
And then we keep it going in [Episode] 5 and 6 and it keeps kind of reverberating and rippling through the rest of the episodes until the end.

At that point, she did not know initiates are stripped of all their possessions, including cell phones, and was expecting a call. Finally late Sunday night, her husband returned. He said they're screaming at you, their faces are painted black, and if you arrive five minutes early or five minutes late, they humiliate you even more. During the weekend, men are subjected to mandatory cold showers in the morning, about four hours of sleep at night and very little food. Mary's husband did not eat Friday night.
On Saturday he was fed small amounts of trail mix and fruit. And he only got a tiny cap's worth. According to the protocol manual obtained by the Press , leaders are told the exact language they are to use when talking to initiates, right down to when they are supposed to pause in the middle of a sentence. When greeting a new member, the staff is told to "get in his face, hard and clear," and to "hold it for 15 to 30 seconds.
Whoever holds the penis gets to share his sexual past or issues. The "Chicken Carving" is a ritual involving a cooked chicken. According to the protocol handbook, the ritual "has gotten distorted into a sophomoric, semi-sadistic, 'let's get 'em' sort of energy so frequently that some centers have dropped it. At one point, says Mary, her husband and the other men were blindfolded and marched into a large room, where they were told to take off their clothes.
Drums were beating in the background, and when the men were told to remove their blindfolds, "he saw 50 or 60 naked men dancing on a stage in a circle," she says. This moment, however, paled in comparison to how uncomfortable Mary's husband felt the following day. It was the first moment he had to relax in days after going through such a high-drama weekend where they pound you to reveal your deep, dark stuff.
So, everyone was sitting Indian-style in a big circle in the lodge when the man leading the group said, 'If you wish, you may reach over and grab your brother's dick. If your brother doesn't want your hand there, he can remove it. And from that point on, he just wanted out.
When asked about the incident that Mary says happened to her husband in the sweat lodge, spokesman Les Sinclair says, "That would never ever happen on a weekend. I can swear on my mother's grave that that would never happen. That's a vindictive comment and whoever told it to you has an agenda. We are very respectful of men and there's none of that sort of juvenile stuff. It would not be tolerated.
Mary says even though her husband didn't want anything further to do with the group, it wasn't that easy to get away. The following week, she says they received "umpteen phone calls asking if he'd signed up for the Integration Group meetings. He kept telling them 'No.
It never ends.
It truly did not end for Mary, because her son's step sponsor was in the process of pressuring him to attend an initiation weekend, just like the one that had so disturbed his father. Three years ago, Mary's thenyear-old son got involved with drugs. And like so many people, he went to rehab and entered a step program. They told him, 'You won't need meds, you won't need psychologists, you won't need anything else. Less than a year ago, Mary's son attended the weekend and is honoring the confidentiality agreement down to the letter, refusing to discuss it with even his mother or father.
He has completed the first eight weeks of Integration Group meetings and plans to remain an active member. As far as Mary is concerned, her son's experience represents all that she sees is wrong with the organization: a poor vetting system and unlicensed men staffing the weekend retreat.

If they had truly interviewed him and looked at the list of meds he takes, which he did include on the medical questionnaire they make you fill out, which is one of the ways they say they screen, they shouldn't have allowed him to participate. They should have looked at his medical history and said, 'This kid has a lot of problems and there is no way we can know how he is going to react to the stuff we do. I think if they have the money, they let them come. He's supposed to help someone and is supposed to know when to stop and start and how far to push a man?
It's ridiculous and it's really scary. At least no positive change. Her son is more secretive now and spends much of his time with older men — many members are over 40 — which makes Mary uncomfortable. When he decided to go do the weekend, I was scared to death.
But I was relieved when he came home, because the fact that he didn't come back and commit suicide means they didn't do him any serious harm. It was about 5 o'clock on a Monday night when Ralph Scinto received a phone call from his son Michael's employer saying Michael had not shown up for work that day. Immediately, Ralph began to panic. He knew his son had gone to The ManKind Project retreat two weeks earlier and returned terrified. Michael had told him about the threats, and that he'd fired his Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor, Kim Sawyer. Michael also told his father he'd consulted an attorney to get a restraining order against Sawyer, who he said had been hounding him with phone calls ever since the retreat.
Ralph called his daughter, Becky, and told her he was going to drive over to Michael's apartment in Webster to check on him. Becky said she wanted to go too, and drove over to her dad's house. Half an hour later, they pulled up next to Michael Scinto's building. Ralph and Becky rushed over to the apartment's front door and began banging on it. When Ralph turned the knob, the door opened. The police arrived shortly after and were hit by the unmistakable stench of decay as soon as they entered the apartment.
Blood was everywhere, on the ceiling and on the floor. And there was Michael Scinto, sprawled out on the carpet, a shotgun laying beside him. Weeks after finding her brother, Becky took several months off from work. A friend had moved Michael's computer from his apartment and gave it to Becky because he could not crack the password. Becky figured it out, and it was then, almost a month after her brother's death, that she first discovered the letter Michael had written to the Madison County sheriff's office.
Becky launched into a two-month research binge. She found chat rooms where people were talking about their negative experiences with the group and where to find crucial insider documents.
Becky tracked down every lead. She used Michael's password to get into the restricted members-only section of The ManKind Project Houston's Web site and downloaded internal papers, including the full membership roster. Family members describe Michael as quiet, calm and shy.

He was "the type of guy who always left a few dollars more than he needed to as a tip at a restaurant," says his mother Kathy. Michael was not seeing a therapist, and as far she knows, had never tried to harm himself before. Even so, in the years leading up to Michael's suicide, the year-old plumber had been struggling with cocaine and alcohol.
As far as his family knew, he had been clean for almost a year and a half up until the week of his death and was putting his life back together after a rocky during which Michael had bought a boat and a townhouse, only to have the bank foreclose because he was spending money on partying instead of making payments. By the early part of , it looked as though Michael had turned a corner. He was well into the Alcoholics Anonymous program, and had registered his new plumbing company with the Better Business Bureau, bought a new company truck, started a Web site, and had company pens and T-shirts printed up.

Michael was forced to rent a less expensive apartment in Webster, but the upshot was it was closer to the Pearland Regional Airport, where Michael indulged his true passion in life, flying. But after the MKP weekend, it was all over. Something had changed. Two days after Scinto returned from the retreat, he sought psychiatric help at Ben Taub Hospital, complaining of nightmares and painful memories since attending a men's workshop.
According to the hospital report released by his family to the Press , Scinto began feeling better soon after checking in.

The doctor then scribbled the phrase "drug seeking" at the bottom of the report. The Harris County Medical Examiner conducted Michael Scinto's autopsy, and concluded that his thoracic blood-alcohol level was 0. Kathy says that her son only began drinking again one week after returning from the retreat.
He sent the letter, in which he detailed the weekend, including allegations of kidnapping, to former Deputy Larry Adams. But the deputy never filed a complaint. A portion of the contract stipulated that Scinto agreed to remain on the retreat's grounds the entire weekend.
The sheriff's office decided that the matter was best suited for a civil court and not a criminal investigation. And if they don't let you go, it really is kidnapping. But I think the evidence is going to show that at the time, Michael requested to stay and that he fully participated when he wanted to and when he didn't, he didn't. The last time Kathy ever saw her son was two days after he had secretly sent the letter to the sheriff's office.
It was also eight days before she would learn of his death. Scinto was supposed to serve as best man at his brother's wedding in two weeks, and went to meet his mother at a Schlotzsky's for lunch to discuss the upcoming event. But that Sunday, she says, "Michael told me something he had never told me before. He said he thought he was sexually abused by several boys when he was about six years old.
Kathy Scinto had been in the dark about this, but apparently Sawyer was not. According to the police report, Sawyer said that during the retreat Scinto told him about the abuse. It was then that Sawyer told Scinto it would be best to share his recently unearthed memory with the group. Sawyer also told Scinto there was a licensed psychologist on hand that could help him if he wished.
Sawyer told police that Scinto made the decision then to remain at the retreat. He was embarrassed and ashamed to divulge his secret. It made him feel bad, and he left there feeling even worse about himself. It is not easy getting people who have attended The ManKind Project initiation weekend to talk about it. The Press contacted dozens of men who said they could not discuss it because of the confidentiality agreement they signed, or because they were scared of retaliation. Real estate developer David Ward is an exception, perhaps because he views the retreat in a positive light.
Ward is no longer an active member. He moved from Houston to Sealy and says it's too far a drive to remain in the group. Ward attended the same weekend as Scinto in July , but doesn't remember him. But like Scinto, Ward knew very little about what he was getting himself into beforehand.
