I'm not really a huge fan of Freudian or Jungian psychology, but DAYS' Melanie seems to have one serious Electra Complex! Her hero worship of Daniel is so beyond being a "Daddy's girl" that it's almost uncomfortable to watch. That's not to say that I think there's anything sexual going on (Come on people, I'm not analyzing it like that!), I just think her attachment is at this overblown, hyper-emotional level, where Daniel has, basically, become a god figure to her. His approval, his emotional safety, is more important to her than her own. He can do no wrong. He's perfect. Whereas her mother, Carly, is the one who is fallible, flawed, and deserving of constant censure. Chloe, another psychological mother figure, given her status as Melanie's stepmother, is a "tramp," while Daniel's own checkered romantic past is completely ignored.
