The fifth episode ended with Dr. Frasier Crane being offered to be a member of the Harvard Founders Society, a prestigious group he always wanted to be a part of. His colleague and best friend, Alan, stood aside and made way for him so that Dr. Frasier was given the opportunity to shine. The next episode is about a misunderstanding that forces Dr. Frasier and Freddy to make some tough choices.
Who Did Eve Invite To The Play?
Frasier Episode 6 begins with Eve inviting Olive and Alan to her play. Eve herself was not confident about the work she and her friend had done on what seemed to be a murder mystery play. Alan and Olive are involuntarily dragged into the show because Eve wanted some support from the audience. Eve is a struggling actress, and working in such plays is a steppingstone towards becoming a legit artist. Olive and Alan agree to attend the play to support her because Eve has become their close acquaintance, if not a friend. Olive wants to stay on good terms with Eve because of her friendship with Dr. Frasier and his son, Freddy.
Will Eve Set Up A Date For Dr. Frasier And Freddy?
Dr. Frasier joins the conversation at the bar right after Olive and Alan agree to attend the play. Somehow the conversation digresses to Dr. Frasier being the most eligible bachelor in the university who happens to be a romantic and well-read person. He was married twice, and one of the nuptials gave him Freddy, who never stopped reminding him that his father had had failed relationships in the past. Olive also points out that a fellow professor from the university is interested in him, and she would like to set her up for a date with him.
Excited at the prospect of dating a fellow intellect, Dr. Frasier agrees to go on a date. Meanwhile, Eve was quick to point out Freddy’s constant worry about becoming emotionally vulnerable. This makes him sabotage every date set up by Eve unconsciously. To prove her wrong, he agrees to a blind date. Freddy wanted to prove he was not as fragile as people perceived him to be, whereas Dr. Frasier wanted to prove his vigor as a single, eligible straight man who still had a lot to offer.
What Is The Confusion That The Father And Son Face?
On the date night, Dr. Frasier welcomed June into his home and was under the impression she was the one set up for him. Dr. Frasier displays his charming self to her, and the woman is floored by the attention. Freddy walks in thinking June is his date set up by Eve, and they hit off as well. Both father and son realize the lady is one of their dates, and they have no way to figure out the answer to this puzzling question. Freddy was under the impression she was meant for him because she seemed to be showing interest in things he liked. On the other hand, June is also attracted to all things vintage, which is Dr. Frasier’s forte.
The father and son are in a peculiar situation, and they try hard to find a solution because they do not want either of them to get hurt. Dr. Frasier had one chance to exhibit his charisma and prove he still had it in him. Meanwhile, Freddy, probably for the first time, was not intimidated by June and was willing to be emotionally open with her about his feelings. Freddy overhears June claiming to have come to meet him, but she seems to be attracted to his father, which is confusing her date plans. Freddy realizes that he could never beat his father in this game and gives up.
Dr. Frasier wanted to be a supportive father, but at the same time, he was elated to know women still go for the likes of him. Freddy asks him to pull an old maneuver, but Dr. Frasier is way past that age, and he does not want to come across as a playboy. Dr. Frasier probably wanted to take this relationship seriously, a lesson he learned from his failed marriages, and he requests that Freddy go ahead and make a move in June.
Who Was Dr. Frasier’s Date?
Their date was interrupted twice. Once it was a nanny who had come to get some essentials for Eve’s baby, while the second time it was Dr. Frasier’s date on the other side of the door. Siobhan was the professor Olive had mentioned, and she turned out to be a stunning woman with a great taste for intellect, just like Dr. Frasier. He couldn’t believe his luck because he had hit a whammy with both women showing interest in him.
Dr. Frasier was clearly carried away by all the attention coming his way because of his sophisticated lifestyle and good looks. Freddy had inherited those good looks, but he was not the type of man who would be willing to juggle between two women just because they were showering attention on him. It was obvious this night was not going as planned, and Dr. Frasier was in a dilemma about how to resolve the matter.
Was The Blind Date A Success?
The blind date was not a success because Dr. Frasier was overwhelmed by the arrival of two women. June and Siobhan overheard him offering a bribe to Freddy to take the woman he is interested in out on the date so that he can resume his night with the professor. The women were clearly offended because Dr. Frasier viewed them as options. Siobhan was livid because he began hitting on June long before she arrived. The men could have cleared the misunderstanding, but we feel the women had been offended enough; clearing the air would not have helped the situation.
Dr. Frasier and Freddy could have handled the situation a lot better if they had not left everything on assumption. Both ended up losing the women they liked because of Dr. Frasier’s greed. Freddy was only attracted to June, and he was willing to make the night eventful if not for his father, who sabotaged everything for selfish reasons. June and Siobhan’s anger was justified, and they left the apartment because educated women such as them needed to be treated with dignity and respect. Dr. Frasier lost his one chance at having a stable relationship. His bad move cost him and Freddy something that would have made them happy and content. The women walked out on them, and rightly so.
