Things are somewhat back to normal in San Francisco on Eli Stone.

Alas, the fake Barry Bonds from last season is nowhere to be seen.

A new vision, new case, and new love

The episode gets started with Eli and Nate jogging through a park. Eli mentions to Nate (Matt Letscher) that he finds it strange that he hasn't had another vision since getting the aneurys...

In the end, Eli hoped that with the aneurysm out of his brain, his visions would cease, and he could go back to living a normal live.

Whether or not he could go back to a normal way of life may have...
