After Martin collars Calvin into helping him locate Amelia, they head to Calvin’s loft where he explains Aster Corps’ motivations connected to Amelia, while Jake attaches himself to a revealing brain scanner. Jake’s scan provides more information about Amelia’s whereabouts as well as a final piece to the puzzle for Calvin to communicate with his brain-dead brother. Armed with leads to Amelia’s location, Martin, Lucy and Jake put their lives on the line when they attempt to infiltrate an Aster Corps desert facility.
Touch is a preternatural drama series which follows a group of seemingly unrelated characters – beginning with a former firefighter tormented by his inability to save a dying woman, an Iraqi teenager who will go to great risks to help his family, a gifted singer whose actions at a karaoke bar save lives thousands of miles away and a British businessman desperately trying to retrieve a key piece of information from his lost mobile phone – who affect each other in ways seen and unseen.
At the center is Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland), a widower and single father, haunted by an inability to connect to his mute, severely autistic 11-year-old son, Jake. Caring, intelligent and thoughtful, Martin has tried everything to reach his son who shows little emotion and never allows himself to be touched by anyone, including Martin. Jake busies himself with cast-off cell phones, disassembling them and manipulating the parts, allowing him to see the world in his own special way. After multiple failed attempts at keeping Jake in school, Martin is visited by social worker Clea Hopkins, who insists on doing an evaluation of the Bohms’ living situation. Although new at her job, Clea sees a man whose life has become dominated by a child he can no longer control.
Touch season 2 episode 8 “Reunions” airs Friday, March 22, at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT on FOX.
