StoryEdit

Season 1Edit

"Sanctuary (Part 1)"Edit

Eli and his parents came to Anne Glass for a check-up, and Dr. Glass said everything was okay. He was helpless to stop his father from forcing Anne to give away all the antibiotics and witnessed Anne's failed attempt to fight back. After they got the antibiotics, he and his family escaped into a neighborhood where they were forced to give back the antibiotics and he and his family presumably became members of the 7th Mass. After Clayton got back with the children of the 2nd Mass, Eli was captured and he told Clayton that he wanted to see his family. Terry Clayton told him he could, then escorted him to a forest where he met a harnessed child named Megan. Secretly Clayton gave him up in exchange for safety. Megan told him she was going to bring him to his family. She grabbed his hand, and saw the harness so he tried to escape, saying that he didn't want to see his parents right now, but was stunned and a Skitter took him to a harnessing factory, where he was harnessed.

TriviaEdit

  • It is said by Greg Beeman that the audience had to recognize Eli, so they made a big close-up, and added a strong red coat to Eli to make him stand out.
  • As Eli was harnessed during the early stages of the invasion, it is know likely that he has fully mutated like Scott.
