ELI REPRESENTS A TEENAGE BOY AGAINST HIS
POWERFUL FATHER, ON ABC'S "ELI STONE"
"Happy Birthday Nate" -- Eli is having visions in which he's trapped in his father's body on Nate's 12th birthday, on ABC's "Eli Stone," TUESDAY, DECEMBER 2 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET). The visions guide Eli to clues in a teenage boy's emancipation trial against his powerful and intimidating father, Jim Cooper, a trial where Nate's medical expertise will prove to be vital -- but threaten Nate's own career. Standing in his way are Matt and Maggie, who've been retained by Cooper, forcing the former friends and colleagues to face off against each other in court. Meanwhile, Taylor fears the worst when confronted with the reality she must tell Matt she's pregnant with his child, and Keith avoids Patti's daughter, who he suspects is doing drugs.
