MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD.
So, in the 6th and final episode of the tragedy show, I Know This Much Is True, it’s finally revealed to the Birdsey brothers that Henry Drinkwater is their biological father. The writer and director of the show Derek Cianfrance recently opened up on why Dominick and Thomas Birdsey’s step-father, Ray Birdsey continued to keep their biological father a secret for such a long time.
Talking about I Know This Much Is True with The Wrap, Derek Cianfrance who has adapted the screenplay from Wally Lamb’s novel said, “I think he understands that he’s not going to lose Dominick, and that he loves Dominick and Dominick deserves to know. It just comes a time when, I think later in life when people are entering their final chapters, I think a lot of their secrets can come out.”
He also opened up about why Ray didn’t reveal their mother’s secret for so long. “One of the reasons he probably held that secret for so many years was, one, because the mother never wanted the kids to know — because she thought they would hate her for it,” he said.
“She was raised with this idea by her father that what she was doing was terrible and a sin, and yet she loved this guy Henry and she kept it a secret from her father and from everyone, and she made Ray promise not to tell.”
Well, we hope that finally it was a nice closure to the show for all of you who have seen it!
