The Changeling Season 1 Episode 4 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

The Changeling Season 1 Episode 4

Lakeith Stanfield and Clark Backo star in Apple TV’s new slow-burn horror television series The Changeling. The first three episodes provided only a glimpse into Apollo and Emma’s parenting nightmare with a lot of ground to cover. Apple’s three-episode release premiere garnered a great response from viewers.

The new series has got everyone excited at the prospect of witnessing another Servant-like series. It remains unclear what the burning answer to the mystery behind the couple’s stalker is currently. The upcoming episodes will gradually unravel the bizarre events that make The Changeling a feverish watch. 

Here is everything you need to know about The Changeling Season 1 Episode 4, including its release date, time and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch The Changeling?

Apple TV+ remains the only platform that will host The Changeling. All the episodes will be available to stream on the platform with subtitles. You can check out different offers to stream the show with Apple TV+’s partner channels here.

The Changeling Season 1 Episode 4 Release Date

The Changeling Season 1 Episode 4 will be released on Friday, September 15, at 9 pm ET/PT. Expect the runtime to be roughly 47 minutes or even more, as was the case with the first three episodes. The new episode of The Changeling is titled “The Wise Ones,” although we cannot say with much certainty what to expect. Emma’s departure from sanity and Apollo’s growing suspicion about her mental well-being should continue to become more apparent in the upcoming episodes. 

How Many Episodes Will The Changeling Have?

The Changeling’s Season 1 will run for a total of 8 episodes. So, after episode 4, we will have another 4 episodes to go that will follow a weekly release schedule, subject to any changes Apple TV+ might make in between. We do not expect there to be any major scheduling interruptions. 

What happened in Episodes 1, 2, & 3?

It is quite a challenge to narrate what exactly went down in the first three episodes, titled “First Comes Love,” Then Comes a Baby in a Baby Carriage,” and “*.” But here we go anyway!

The Changeling is the story of two book lovers in New York, Emma and Apollo, who meet each other in a library, fall in love, and start a life together, all in a matter of a few weeks. Shortly after, they are blessed with a baby boy whom they name Brian. He is named after Apollo’s father who abandoned his family.

Emma’s sister Kim and Apollo’s mother Lillian help the couple to navigate their early days of parenthood. Even though the couple is filled with optimism about their future, Emma is distressed that Brian does not like her. She is under the impression that he hates her and she will never be able to give him the motherly love she so desires. Apollo and Emma’s familiarity with Brian is in stark contrast.

Apollo is incredibly smooth in how he handles the newborn, while Emma struggles to cope. Things get even more complicated for the newlyweds as Emma starts getting picture messages from an unknown number. The photos are secretively taken and always feature Apollo and Brian sharing an intimate moment. Emma grows more and more disenchanted with the promise of motherhood and becomes paranoid due to this new stalker.

Apollo does not believe her but does not want to abandon her either. The first three episodes showed a generational overlap between Brian & Lillian, and Apollo & Emma’s trajectory as troubled parents with the roles reversed.
