A FIRE-BREATHING DRAGON IS JUST THE BEGINNING
OF ELI'S PROBLEMS, ON ABC'S "ELI STONE"
"Heal the Pain" � SATURDAY, JULY 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on ABC's "Eli Stone," Eli adjusts to his new position at the law firm without an office, a secretary or the ability to try cases himself -- all in the same week that he's being chased by a fire-breathing dragon. The dragon fly-bys prompt him to take the case of a 15-year-old boy whose mother was killed by the medical malpractice of a DR. AGON. Unfortunately, Agon used to work at the same hospital where Eli's brother, Nathan, is employed -- the hospital that Eli must sue. Making matters even worse is the fact that Jordan assigns Maggie as lead counsel and Eli has to follow her instructions. The roll-reversal, ironically, brings them closer together -- a fact not lost on Taylor, who tries to reconcile with Eli through a surprisingly live performance by none other than... special guest star George Michael.
