Merle Dandridge on a Greenleaf Twist That Captured Viewers' Hearts

Season 2
CC | tv-pg
During the first few minutes of the Greenleaf's series premiere, we meet Grace Greenleaf, the prodigal daughter of a prominent bishop in Memphis, Tennessee. Seconds later, we meet the family's security guard, Noah Kendall, and the sparks between the two are impossible to miss.

This launched a "will they or won't they?" plotline that truly shocked some fans when the question was finally answered in a steamy bedroom scene. Here, the actress who played Grace, Merle Dandridge, explains why she was taken by surprise when she was told of the twist.

Tune in for Greenleaf season 2 March 15, 2017, only on OWN.
