Richard asked Sutton for a divorce in ‘The Bold Type’
After years of being on and off, Sutton and Richard married in the fourth season of The Bold Type. In the second half of the season, Sutton suffered a miscarriage. While this made Richard realize he was ready to have children as soon as possible, Sutton came to the realization that she does not want kids.
Richard left Sutton at the end of the fourth season, and at the beginning of season 5, he asked Sutton for a divorce. In season 5 episode 5 of The Bold Type, Sutton and Richard meet to discuss signing divorce papers as a formality.
During a second meeting, Sutton confesses to Richard that seeing him was difficult for her even though she wants him to be happy. Richard tells her that he is in the process of adopting a baby, and he admits he will always love her. After an emotionally charged conversation, they sleep together.

“I know,” Richard says.
“And you’re gonna adopt a baby,” Sutton adds.
Richard replies, “I know.”
“What are we doing?” Sutton asks him.
“I don’t know. Can’t we live in the dream a little while longer?” Richard asks. “Unless you don’t want to. I…”
“No, I do. I really do,” Sutton tells him.
The clip ends, hinting that Richard and Sutton may not be able to let each other go after all.
