Rebecca kept William a secret

Not only had Rebecca already met Randall’s (Sterling K. Brown) biological father, William (Ron Cephas Jones), by the time her adopted son tracked him down, but she had met him twice, as we found out over a Thanksgiving dinner midway through Season 1. She had covered up the second meeting because William had cleaned up his act and she was afraid she’d lose Randall.
