Eli Stone is a rising, successful attorney. Not only is he working for Jordan Wethersby's renowned law firm, but he is engaged to Jordan's daughter Taylor, also an attorney. However, Eli begins having hallucinations (many of which involve singer George Michael) that may either be linked to a medical condition, or the bizarre chance that he is a modern-day prophet. The hallucinations lead him to reluctantly take a case involving his college friend/first lover, Beth Keller. Beth's son developed autism, which Beth blames on a childhood vaccine produced by a major pharmaceutical company. At the same time, Eli's behavior about his visions makes him recall his estranged relationship with his now-deceased father, whom Eli believes was an alcoholic.

David Petrarca April 13, 2008 (2008-04-13) 112

Eli's visions bring him back to the supposed earthquake. This time, he sues San Francisco to close the Golden Gate Bridge. Supported by a so-called quack scientist, Eli opposes Ms. Klein and Maggie in a court case that could decide the lives of hundreds. At the same time, Ms. Klein uses Jordan's apparent lack of control over Eli as ammunition to remove Jordan as managing partner. At the end of the episode, the earthquake does hit and destroys the Golden Gate Bridge.

Famous quotes containing the word season:

    The season developed and matured. Another year’s installment of flowers, leaves, nightingales, thrushes, finches, and such ephemeral creatures, took up their positions where only a year ago others had stood in their place when these were nothing more than germs and inorganic particles. Rays from the sunrise drew forth the buds and stretched them into long stalks, lifted up sap in noiseless streams, opened petals, and sucked out scents in invisible jets and breathings.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
