I was thinking this morning. Obviously the entire series is set up for Niles and Daphne to get together. However Niles 2nd wife Mel before they turned her into a crazy woman spurned. I cany help but think she was actually quite a hood match for Niles. Educated and encouraging tutor him to go for his dreams. Had Daphne not existed (or married Donny) then Mel and Niles could have been happy?

Still utterly love Frasier btw

Trying to remember... I guess anyone who gave Niles a bit of a backbone would have upset the dynamic amongst them all.

@Strawberrypancakes

She was quite controlling and manipulative if I remember rightly? When she talked him into going against Frasier for president of the wine club.

Yes. And she talked down to everyone.

The later episodes where she is quite crazy i agree paints her in a poor light. Early on though yes she gives Niles a bit of a back bone and upsets the apple cart but I guess I feel that could have been good for Niles
