The second season of OWN’s dramatic scripted series ‘Greenleaf’ returns March 15th with a bang.

In this exclusive clip, we see Oprah Winfrey (Merle Dandridge) and Lynn Whitfield (Lady Mae) verbally spar in the church as deep family secrets are exposed.

Whitfield explains how intense and intimidating it was to yell and fight with her boss, Oprah.

So much so, the EP of the episode, had to coach Whitfield into delivering the scene full throttle–which was a heavy task considering the script called for Whitfield to call O’s character a ‘whore.’

“Clement Virgo, who directed it, said, no, you’ve got to let her have. I said, ‘Really let her have it?”‘ Whitfield explains.

“I instinctively felt, that as a viewer, not as myself the actress, but as a viewer, I wanted to see a confrontation between the two of them,” Winfrey revealed.
