Richard Got A DNA Test
Since Kate didn’t want to tell Richard the truth about her cheating on him and that the boys were not his, he decided to get a DNA test to compare the results to his sons. The only thing holding him back was the thought that his sons wouldn’t accept him as a father anymore, but he was prepared for the worst as he needed to know the truth.
Richard thought of which son he would tell first as he didn’t know how each of them would take the news. This added more stress to Richard’s plate as Kate left it up to him to tell the boys the bad news.
