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 wedding, 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 wedding 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 wedding 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 wedding 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 everything right now and plan the wedding and the honeymoon and start picking out baby names, then that’s what we’ll do.’

‘That’s the thing — I don’t want to drop everything right now,’ she admitted. ‘I want to get married — but I also really care about what I do.’

Mike then insisted: ‘Maybe your father’s right about how hard it is to throw ourselves into our wedding right now. But he’s wrong if he thinks we never will.’

Telling her he had to ‘go take care of something that I should’ve taken care of before,’ he insisted: ‘When we get home we’re going to crack open a bottle of wine and we’re going to talk all night about the wedding we want to have.

‘And then we are going to pick a date.’

Candid: ‘That's the thing — I don’t want to drop everything right now,’ she admitted. ‘I want to get married — but I also really care about what I do’

This time they said goodbye with an affectionate hug and kiss, with Rachel soon calling her dad to relay the news.

‘It never stops does it? The work of being a lawyer,’ she asked him, with him replying: ‘Doesn’t mean you can’t make time for the more important things.’

She told him that they were switching the wedding to the Plaza — a relief as he thought Harvey’s apartment was only great ‘if you’re a bachelor pushing 50 and you need to impress women’ — telling him the wedding ‘is going to be wonderful.’

When he said he wanted her to have whatever she wanted, she then warned: ‘What I want is going to take some time I want to enjoy it and make time for it. So Mike and I are going to set a date but it’s not going to be for a while.’

’It doesn’t matter when it is as long as you’re happy,’ he insisted.

She then shared a tender moment, telling her dad that a brief plan to pretend his firm was merging with her own one ‘‘kind of excited about the thought of working with my dad.’

‘I never thought I’d ever hear you say that,’ he said proudly.

She then told him that it ‘meant everything to me’ when someone told her her dad had said ’that you think I’m a great lawyer and that you’re proud of me.’

‘Rachel, I may not say it often enough — but I think it all the time,’ he told her, with them both saying ‘I love you’ before hanging up.

While their wedding seemed to be back on track — even if delayed — the episode ended with Mike agreeing to help in a case that he had signed a commitment not to get involved in, potentially threatening to derail his career after only just becoming legitimate after lying about his credentials for years.

But he had helped small-time lawyer Oliver Grady [Jordan Johnson-Hinds] potentially unearth a huge scandal with numerous deaths in prisons, a class action case Oliver insisted he could not handle without Mike’s help.

‘You lived a lie for years and you’re telling me you can’t keep a secret about working one goddamned case?’ he had asked, with Mike ending the episode by agreeing to help.

New hire Alex Williams [Dule Hill] also seemed to have potential crisis ahead of him after his former firm Bratton Gould started pouching Pearson Specter Litt clients and also suing others.

After a crisis that appeared to threaten the future of the firm, Alex finally admitted that he had previously done something scandalous at his old firm — and had dirt on Bratton Gould boss Tommy too.

He went to see Tommy to get him to sign a promise to leave Pearson Specter Litt and its clients alone for 10 years — in return from a signed declaration from Alex that he was not involved in their joint scandal.

The nature of their wrongdoing was never revealed, but it was clearly a serious one — and one that could raise its head later and threatened Alex and potential his new firm Pearson Specter Litt.

Harvey, meanwhile, eventually found out that former boss Jessica Pearson [Gina Torres] had been the one helping Bratton Gould attack them — insisting it was a plot to actually help Pearson Specter Litt because she knew the attacks would go nowhere.

‘Nothing unites a divided house like an attack from the outside,’ said Jessica, who Harvey had earlier turned to after fearing internal rebellion from his own people.
