ON SEASON FINALE -- NILES RETURNS WITH DAPHNE'S DAD IN TOW -- BUT WILL HIS GO-BETWEEN GAMBIT GET LOST? -- In the season ender, Niles' (David Hyde Pierce) loopy scheme finally succeeds when he convinces Daphne's (Jane Leeves) hard-drinking father (guest star Brian Cox, "Murder by Numbers") in England to return to her harpy-like mother (guest star Millicent Martin, NBC's "Days of Our Lives") in Seattle -- but hopes of reconciling the two might hinge on making the old man jealous by dangling Martin (John Mahoney) as a romantic rival. Meanwhile, Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) seems obsessed with getting a good report card from his latest romantic partner.
