Frasier is still wallowing in Lilith's announcement that she is leaving him for her colleague, Dr. Louis Pascal. What's worse, she has decided to let Frasier have sole custody of Frederick - or in Frasier's mind, abandoning her only child - and live in an underground bubble in the desert, an "eco-pod" with Dr. Pascal. The eco-pod is Dr. Pascal's primary scientific experiment. She wants a trial separation for the time she's gone to live in the eco-pod. She's sees her act as the first and only time she's let loose in her life. Frasier's response is to get on the ledge of a third floor window above the bar threatening to jump. Lilith comes to the scene to try and talk him off the ledge, telling him in all sincerity that she will go back to him if he doesn't kill himself. With that announcement, Frasier, still in love with Lilith, has some words for Dr. Pascal as he commits his final act in the matter. Written by Huggo

The Girl in the Plastic Bubble (#11.7)
29 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

So Lilith leaves Frasier. He also gets the sole custody of Frederick for the time she is away as she is going with Dr. Pascal to live in an Eco-pot as experiment. To deal with it Frasier threatens to jump out of the window. Everyone in the bar tries to talk him out of it. Lilith says she will stay with him even though she will be unhappy with her life. And he lets her go.

Great episode.I liked how Cliff suggested to fake a heart attack as him and his mom do whenever one is leaving. It is also great how reversed gender roles are in this separation with Frasier being left with Frederick. Lilith telling Carla off was hilarious too. But the best part was Frasier on the ledge and everything people said to him. Sam saying him that he loves him as well as Lilith's honesty.
