'Touch' Season 2 Episode 12 “Fight or Flight”

On this week’s Touch season 2, episode 12, “Fight or Flight,” with the Aster Corps quarterly report just days away, executive Nicole Farington (guest star Frances Fisher) becomes increasingly desperate and the pressure is on for Calvin Norburg to deliver results from the company’s ongoing study of the “Righteous 36.” Following an intense encounter with Aster Corps enforcer Tanner (guest star Sweeney), Martin schemes alongside Trevor Wilcox (guest star Greg Ellis), who puts it all on the line to go undercover and prevent the company’s distressed executives from harming innocent test subjects in the name of corporate greed.

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 12 “Fight or Flight” airs Friday, May 3, at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT on FOX. Spoiler video below:
