Episode 03 - Father Figure

'Father Figure' - As if Eli didn't have enough to worry about with his upcoming engagement party, his latest visions - which transport him to a World War II battlefield - prompt him to take the case of a National Guard Specialist serving in Iraq and suing her ex-husband over custody of their son - who is represented by Eli's fiancée, Taylor.

With help from his spiritual guru Dr. Chen, Eli recalls a childhood memory of his father that reminds him of the lengths people will go to to protect the ones they love - a valuable clue that uncovers a shocking twist in his case. Meanwhile, as Eli's odd behavior continues, Jordan requires him to provide medical proof that he is fit to work at the firm, so Eli turns to his brother for help in falsifying his medical records.
