ELI AND KEITH SUE A PRISON WHILE A SENIOR PARTNER THREATENS
JORDAN'S POWER, ON ABC'S "ELI STONE"
"Patience" � Eli gets a glimpse into his own surprising future, on ABC's "Eli Stone," SATURDAY, AUGUST 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET). A vision of the future prompts Eli to take the case of a prisoner who's been denied parole�and happens to be a former client of Keith's. Unfortunately, the timing couldn't be worse because law firm partner Marci Klein (guest star Katey Sagal) is in town to investigate why the firm's Fortune 500 clients are leaving in droves (hint: it's Eli's fault), which could mean the end of Jordan's reign as senior partner. Meanwhile, Matt's efforts to win Taylor over lead to the case of two gay chimpanzees. (Rebroadcast. OAD 4/10/08)
