Back then, it was very much in vogue for TV shows to portray high power career women turning down marriage proposals because they didn't want to give up their precious independence. Now it's just cliche. Really, who didn't predict that Bailey was going to back out?
Really? this episode just creates drama where there is none. Bailey not going to her wedding? Come on people, let these people have a bit less drama in their lives and end this show already, it has dragged on too long.
