Eli's fate rests in the hands of his brother, Nathan. The case of a man's right to die coincides with Eli's surgery to remove his brain aneurysm -- a procedure that develops complications which could leave him in a vegetative state for the rest of his life. As Eli's client tries to die with dignity, Nathan wrestles with whether to remove Eli from life support, and Dr. Chen realizes the secret of his connection to Eli. And Eli comes face to face with... God? If so, why does the almighty look so much like George Michael?
