Program Description: With a newfound resolve and sense of his life's purpose -- even if that means being a prophet -- Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller, "Trainspotting") ended the show's freshman season by making peace with the Almighty... by having his brain aneurysm -- and the source of his fantastic visions -- removed. He appointed his brother, Nathan (Matt Letscher, "The New Adventures of Old Christine"), his proxy in case the surgery left him in a vegetative state -- which it did. With Eli in a coma and Nathan wrestling with the decision of whether to take his brother off life support, Eli's spiritual guru, Dr. Chen (James Saito, "I Think I Love My Wife"), appealed to Nathan to give Eli more time. And with that reprieve granted, Eli was able to make peace with God -- through a George Michael musical number, of course -- and awake from his coma.
