Who is Rachel?

Rachel is an official who works at the coroner’s office, mainly dealing with the autopsies of bodies involved in crimes. In the sixth episode of the series, Rachel meets C to receive a dead body for an autopsy. She gets impressed by C and his office since her office doesn’t have the pieces of astounding equipment C has at his disposal. As their conversation progresses, Rachel ends up liking him and she gives him her card to “use” the same. C and Rachel decide to go on a date. Rachel’s charm and heart-warming demeanor make the forensic analyst immensely happy.

C’s admiration towards Rachel eventually becomes immense pressure that weighs on him. He starts to get worried thinking whether Rachel will like him, which leads him to one of Kemi Adebayo’s rituals. Despite not having any belief in the same, C does the ritual for the sake of impressing Rachel. However, C ends up standing Rachel up because he is not confident enough to get into a relationship with her. He goes to Kemi and expresses his lack of confidence, only for her to console him while Rachel wonders what happened to C.

Since Rachel seems understanding and compassionate enough, we may see her trying to perceive why C couldn’t make it to the date. She may help him cope with his concerns and worries so that they can restart their attempts to get to know each other. C has never expressed any desire to date anyone for a considerable while and Rachel may understand how hard it is for him to take a diversion from his usual way of life to date her. If she does the same, we may see her giving C space and time to form a bond with her.
