On this week’s Touch season 2, episode 10, “Two of a Kind,” as Jake uses a cipher to locate Amelia, Martin tracks a bloody path to Guillermo, who is stalking Dr. Nell Plimpton, someone we’ve seen before and one of the righteous “36.” Meanwhile, Calvin Norburg meets with Nicole Farington, the uber-competent CEO of Aster Corps, who introduces him to the first quantum computer in an attempt to woo him back to the company. When different roads lead to the same location, lives are lost as shocking events unfold.
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 10 “Two of a Kind” airs Friday, April 5, at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT on FOX.
