It's actually the opposite. The fast step does not affect the overall rate because the overall reaction is only as fast as its slowest step. No matter how fast other reactions run, the overall reaction can't be completed until the slowest step is completed. Therefore, the rate of the overall reactions is equal to the rate of the slowest step.
