Plot Summary

Lawyer Eli Stone begins to see visions, including George Michael singing in his living room, and street cars in the lobby of his office building. Turns out he has a medical condition (aneurysm) that affects his brain and might be the cause of the visions (as well as those of his late father, whom he considered a deadbeat until finding out his dad may have been similarly afflicted). Eli takes on a case that pits him against his own firm, on the side of a mother and son fighting a drug company. Written by Ron Kerrigan

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The show's pilot came under fire for depicting mercury additives in childhood vaccines as a credible cause for autism, an idea which had gained a great deal of media attention in the late 1990s but which was thoroughly disproved by the time the episode was produced. The American Academy of Pediatrics asked that a disclaimer to be placed in front of the show, reminding viewers that no mercury is present in routine vaccinations and that the mercury-autism link has been rejected by the medical community. The producers opted to show a disclaimer after the end credits stating that the "persons, companies, products or events" were fictional, referring viewers to the CDC's web site on autism for more information.
