ELI FORESEES AN EARTHQUAKE AND SUES THE CITY
OF SAN FRANCISCO TO SAVE IT, ON ABC'S "ELI STONE"
"Waiting for That Day" � The "Big One" that Eli knew would come has finally arrived, on ABC's "Eli Stone," SATURDAY, AUGUST 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET). Eli has a vision of himself sitting in the back of a taxicab traveling on the Golden Gate Bridge when suddenly the earthquake hits. Unfortunately nobody believes him until Dr. Chen tells him about a scientist, Daniel Foote, who predicts the same earthquake. With Foote's help, Eli sues the city of San Francisco to get it to shut down the Golden Gate Bridge before it's too late. But he's opposed in court by W.P.K senior partner Marci Klein. Even more surprising is Klein's co-counsel -- Maggie. Meanwhile, Taylor begins to fall for Matt, and Jordan fights to remain head of the firm. (Rebroadcast. OAD 4/13/08)
