Predictions for Episode 7 of “A Family Friend”, “The Great Deceiver”
As A Friend of the Family closely follows Jan Broberg’s true story, it’s not hard to see what will happen in Episode 7. Jan ran away from home in August 1976. The FBI suspected that Berchtold knew where Jan was, so they put him under surveillance.

In November 1976, FBI agents finally tracked down Jan, living with Berchtold in Salt Lake City, Utah. He had enrolled her in a Catholic school for girls in Pasadena, California. Teachers and school administrators believed that Berchtold was with the CIA and they were “on the run”. Thus, they did not willingly give information about Jan to the FBI.
The FBI finally extracted Jan from the school in November 1976. The next three episodes of A Family Friend will likely detail this second kidnapping and rescue of Jan Broberg.
