Adelaide Nolan is a main character in the Frasier-based fan fiction spin-off The Deep End.
The Deep End
Adelaide is the mother of Chloe, Silas and Pam, and the ex-wife of Harry Gates. She first appears mid-way through Season 7, when Chloe visits her at her childhood home in Poughkeepsie. At this point Adelaide is surly, obese and bedridden, and taken care of by Silas. Adelaide becomes a main character in Season 8 when Chloe permanently moves to Poughkeepsie. Adelaide is revealed to have been a very self-centred and unsupportive mother, which causes a lot of tension between her and Chloe. However, over the course of the season, they manage to settle their differences and develop a closer bond. Adelaide also loses a lot of her weight after she joins Weight Watchers. Adelaide passes away at a grocery store mid-way through Season 9 after throwing a tantrum over its lack of healthy options. Chloe and Silas scatter her ashes over the Poughkeepsie river a few episodes later.
