Freeing The Beast
Kenny Daly becomes addicted to the rush of shoplifting and turns to Frasier for advice, who unfortunately has recently become addicted to the rush of personal blackmail. Daphne obliviously joins a cult and innocently charms all the members away from the leader before accidentally knocking him off the Ballard Bridge with an enthusiastic gesture during a meteor shower. Martin reflexively yells at a basketball referee through his television during a live playoff game, and the entire stadium hears him, with several players collapsing to their knees in convulsions of horror and the ref himself vomiting uncontrollably. Niles and Roz keep having lurid sexual dreams about one another, and their normal witty repartee begins to take on an increasingly graphic and erotically-charged tone, to the confusion of their friends and family and arousal of numerous Nervosa eavesdroppers. Noel becomes obsessed with William Blake’s Great Red Dragon watercolor series and can’t stop envisioning himself as an enormous chicken-like creature, clothed in a red Starfleet uniform and still named “Noel”. Eddie secretly learns how to open doors.
