Tonight on 'Leah Remini': L. Ron Hubbard gets the Russell Miller treatment - 2017-11-14
Leah Remini concludes her "special" episodes of Season Two tonight at 10 pm by having on two real experts on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard: author Russell Miller and former "Deputy Commodore" Hana Whitfield. (One final show for Season Two is scheduled for next week, when Leah will answer viewer questions in a Reddit-sponsored episode.)
We're really glad that Leah has taken on this subject. In the first season, Leah was pretty vocal about sticking to Scientology's abuses, and made a point of not going near Scientology's beliefs. But earlier this season, she took on Scientology's beliefs head-on with one of the best episodes she's done — she had on Bruce Hines and her own mother, Vicki Marshall, to take apart Scientology auditing and the "Bridge to Total Freedom."
And now, she's going even more basic than that, taking a hard look at the man behind Scientology, its inventor, Hubbard. "As a child, I saw him as some sort of deity," she says to open the show. "Me too," Mike responds. "My goal was to join the Sea Org and go work with L. Ron Hubbard."
