There's mystery and a lot of it on ABC's new TV series, "The Family." In Season 1 episode 5 titled "I Win," the producers will demystify some of the storylines in the plot and offer some sort of resolution to questions surrounding Adam Warren's (Liam James) real identity.
Previously, Hank Asher (Andrew McCarthy), the person who was wrongly convicted in Adam's disappearance, made it clear that he wanted justice. Although he was told that he was better off buying an island elsewhere, he remained resolute in his ambition to attack the Warrens.
Meanwhile in episode 4, Bridey Cruz (Floriana Lima) collected Adam's DNA for a paternity test. The results of the test could indeed expose Adam's identity and his relationship with Doug.
According to the synopsis (via TV Guide), Adam receives a postcard from a pock marked man in episode 5. It is difficult to imagine that this intimation could go unnoticed by his family. In fact, the promo for the upcoming instalment captures a very concerned Claire (Joan Allen) looking at Adam as he toys with the postcard. Although she asks who it is from, Adam doesn't respond, but he is clearly scared.
Could Adam be running out of time in the Warren household? Is the postcard a threat about his real identity? What information does Doug have to offer?
In any case, episode 5 could perhaps reveal the truth about Adam and his disappearance 10 years ago. In the promo, Bridey reveals that the results from the paternity test are back, and she will be one of the two people who will damage the Warrens in the upcoming episode.
Hank, who is bent on revenge, is badly beaten up. He gets admitted in the hospital and when Detective Meyer (Margot Bingham) asks who is responsible for his injuries, he replies that it is John Warren (Rupert Graves).
"The Family" Season 1 episode 5 airs Sunday, March 27, at 9 p.m. EST on ABC. You can live-stream the episode via ABC GO.
