Richard Watson is Keith's father and a retired soldier of the US Army.
He and his wife meet Bree Van de Kamp, Keith's new girlfriend, when they go out for a meal. He takes a fancy to Bree. He later separates (ready to divorce in the future) from his wife. He then tries to kiss Bree, who refuses. Keith finds out and the pair start fighting. A horrified Bree splits the pair up by firing a pistol shot up into the air, all while a neighborhood riot is happening right down the street.
