Rachel’s dad Robert Zane, played by former Wire star Wendell Pierce, questioned whether she was getting cold feet, pointing out that she had even constantly put off making a formal engagement announcement.

‘Your mother said that she arranged for a photographer but you canceled. Same with the florist,’ he stressed.

While she tried to brush his concerns aside by insisting that ‘Mike and I are both really busy getting our careers off the ground right now,’ she seemed to have serious thoughts of her own when her dad stressed that it could reflect a bigger problem.

‘Rachel, that's just it,’ he told her. ‘If you can’t focus on your , how are you going to make time to focus on your marriage?’

His concerns initial seemed to spark Rachel into action, quickly getting her to persuade Mike to dismiss plans to have the at their boss Harvey Specter’s stunning bachelor pad and instead have it at New York’s famous Plaza Hotel.

She even revealed that she had already made an appointment with a planner at the hotel — where Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones got married in real life in 2000 — with Mike teasing her: ‘Wait, you made an appointment in-between when I said it was OK and now?’

She could not hide her disappointment that her groom-to-be insisted he could not make the appointment, with him trying to reassure her by saying: ‘I know you — you’re going to have a thousand questions, you’re going to narrow down the choices. I promise you I will be at other every other meeting.’

But the polite peck on the cheek they had as they said goodbye appeared to show a lack of intimacy at such a key stage in their relationship.

Rachel then looked like she was going to be forced to miss the appointment herself when her stressed boss Donna Paulsen [Sarah Rafferty] insisted she instead try to win back an underling, Stephanie, who they had only just fired.

After her failed bid to win her back, Rachel lied to Donna that she was still on time for the appointment with the planner, instead shown arriving late but still keen to sit through the second half of the two-hour appointment.

However her heart was not in it, either, with her later telling Mike she canceled it.

‘I got there late and the woman started showing me options anyway,’ she told him.

‘But I realized I was spending more time thinking about who was feeding Bratton Gould inside information than I was about what color our napkins were going to be,’ she admitted of the crisis their firm Pearson Specter Litt was facing from a key rival.

She then asked Mike sadly: ‘What’s wrong with us? We can’t even find the time to keep one appointment.’

When he told her that ‘our schedules are crazy right now,’ she revealed to him: ‘And that’s exactly what I told my dad when he brought it up. He said if we can’t make time for each other now how are we ever going to make time of our marriage.’

Grabbing her hands affectionately and making her stand to look him in the eye, Mike then sweetly insisted: ‘You are the most important thing in my life. If you want to drop
