Over the past two episodes of Greenleaf, “Revival” and “Point of No Return”, a major revelation regarding Lady Mae Greenleaf came to light. In “Revival”, Bishop Lionel Jeffries comes to Calvary during the church’s Fall Revival, and it quickly becomes apparent that he and Lady Mae share a secret from their past. In “Point of No Return,” Lionel Jeffries’ son, Aaron, who is moving into the Greenleaf estate, reveals that he knows about Lady Mae’s affair with his father, telling her, “I’ll never tell anyone about you and dad. What would be the point?” His words echo his father’s from the prior episode: “I didn’t come here to cause you any trouble.” Lady Mae tells Lionel, “You think I should have run off with you when I had the chance. That whole thing was a mistake.” In an interesting juxtaposition of events, the latest episode also finds Mae counseling her daughter Charity, who is getting closer to her music producer, against ending her marriage with Kevin. In only the way that Lady Mae can say it, she tells Charity that it is better to let her marriage bend so much that it is “knotted up like seaweed from a swamp”, but not to let it break. Apparently, she knows what she is talking about.
