A Friend of the Family, season 1, episode 4 release date, time, and where to watch

This article contains predictions for the Peacock series A Friend of the Family season 1, episode 4, and includes the release date, time and where to watch online.

A Friend of the Family episode 3 took the option of flashing back in time to two years before Jan Broberg’s abduction and portrayed in disturbingly vivid detail the manner in which her abductor, Robert Berchtold, worked his way into the affections of both her and her family and the manipulative tactics he used to get close to them. Here’s what happened in “The Gift of Tongues”:

  • Robert reached out to Bob and Mary Ann to help him with the intimacy problems of his marriage.
  • Bob and Mary Ann were manipulated by Robert (possibly Gail as well) into allowing him to take Jan away with them and their kids on a trip where he drugged Jan with an ‘allergy pill’.
  • Bob was talked into committing a sex act on Robert due to his frustrations with his marriage problems.
  • Berchtold was shown to be getting released from the Mexican prison he was incarcerated for transportation back to America.

Viewers worldwide can catch A Friend of the Family on Peacock on the date mentioned above.


Berchtold’s delight at being told he was heading back to the US clearly indicates that his horrific behaviour and manipulations of Jan and her family is not over yet.  Some predictions:

  • It’s not clear yet what the reasoning is behind Berchtold being transferred back to America, but it’s possible it’s for a trial.
  • The last time we saw Jan after being rescued, we saw that she was still being swayed by his poisonous influence. It’s likely we’ll see the effects this has had on her since returning home.
  • We’ve also witnessed the profound effects that Robert has had on both Mary Ann and Bob, both in very differing ways. We may very likely see the impact he has had personally on their marriage.
  • If there is a trial, it’s possible we might see Robert’s attempts at seducing Mary Ann and his manipulation of Bob into committing a sexual act with him come to light.

You can watch this series with a subscription to Peacock.
