With season two just around the corner, we asked the Greenleaf cast to pick their favorite scenes from the show's inaugural season. Merle Dandridge, the actress who portrays Grace, singled out the epic family dinner from the premiere episode as an extra special moment.

Merle says the cast had just met one another for the first time when they had to sit around a dinner table and portray family members who've been out of touch for 20 years, with all sorts of tensions simmering just beneath the surface.

Here, she explains what made that day so memorable for everyone involved.
