Touch (S1E5) Entanglement Recap

3 02 2013

(Late recapping, but prepping for new season starting on Friday, February 8, 2013)

Opening scenes: A Muslim girl (actress Emily Ghamrawi) watches as her father arranges her marriage. She takes off her burqa and we see that she is a fan of “The Morticians.” A pickpocket (actor Ron Yuan) in New York lifts a wallet off a man, but returns it to him when he sees the man’s daughter’s picture. A man (actor Amir Talai) in Montreal subway watches a young lady reading, “Les Filles” (actress Sabrena No’mani). They get off at the Champs-des-Mars metro station (which was created in 1966–1+9+6+6=22). A young lady lights a candle in a church (actress Zuleyka Silver).

At a restaurant, Clea (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) and Jake (David Mazouz) have breakfast before the big evaluation that is to take place that day. At the sound of Abigail’s name (Sarah’s sister), Jake gets agitated. Martin wants to know how Abigail found out that Jake was at the center as it had only been 1 week. Jake draws a pattern with sugar packets and pours maple syrup in his hand which he leaves an imprint of on the glass as he leaves the restaurant with Clea.

Martin goes to visit Professor Teller (Danny Glover). He talks about “The Golden Ratio.” At the beginning of the voice over, Jake is talking about the DNA of life, so I looked specifically for the any references to that to this mathematical equation: “Several researchers have proposed connections between the golden ratio and the human genome DNA.” Teller tells Martin the number that Jake wants him to follow is 22.

It also talks about the Fibonacci sequence which was something mentioned in earlier episodes.

Norah disguises herself as a boy to go driving and picks up her female friend. They run into a woman in the desert about to give birth. They pick her up and the plan is to take her to a hospital, but the car breaks down.

Teller is acting strangely. He goes to see his daughter, Maggie, (Deidrie Henry) who works at Victory Hospital. Teller thinks he is nearing the next set of numbers in the sequence. He says, “They don’t know I found the boy.” Who are they? Maggie wants his to see the neurologist, Dr. Bennett.

At Centre Hospital, Sami is ready to meet the girl on the train at 8:00 that night. It is his last day at work. His supervisor tells him that he needs to get on the computer and find a bone marrow donor match for Gabriel who was adopted as he was just diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.

The picketpocket lifts Martin’s computer as Martin’s food tumbles out of the bag. Martin gives chase. The man jumps onto Bus 22. The pickpocket gets off before Martin can reach him. Martin sits next to the young lady from the church sequence. Martin sees Jake’s pattern on the logo for Hudson University (a common fictional university for many TV shows) that she possesses. She pulls a gun on Martin and says this will be over in 5 stops. Clea tries to call Martin because he is late for the evaluation but it goes to voicemail. The girl on the bus points to the man she wants to kill because he killed her villagers including her mother, father and brother.

The pickpocket meets up with his daughter and gives her Martin’s computer for her birthday. However, she gets a new car from her stepfather. The pickpocket arranges to have an impromptu Chinese dragon parade for his daughter because that memory is special to her.

The woman who is in labor calls her husband who happens to be in New York. The call distracts him and he steps into the path of Bus 22. For a moment the gun is jarred free from Marisol’s hands. Martin grabs the man and gets him off the bus, but Marisol follows. They wind up in an alley. This is where Martin sees Exodus 22:22 on his chest. (Exodus 22:21-22 says, “You shall not wrong any widow or orphan. If ever you wrong them and they cry out to me, I will surely hear their cry.” ) Martin tries to talk Marisol out of this.

Fireworks from the parade distract Marisol. The man pushes Martin out of the way and runs towards his hotel. Marisol follows and gets hit by a delivery truck.

Out in the desert, instead of her brother coming out to meet them, Norah’s father gets out of the car. He waits outside the car while his daughter helps the woman give birth to a baby girl.

At Victory Hospital, Martin sees the Chapel notice saying that they were talking about Exodus this month. He looks up the passage in Exodus. Martin goes back to the hotel to get the story from the man. It was war. He and a group of individuals did kill the father, but they could not kill the brother. The children were sent to Canada. Ah, now it’s coming all together for me. Marisol is going to be the match for her brother in Canada. Martin talks to Maggie at the hospital (not realizing it is Teller’s daughter) and see Jake’s pattern on the bone marrow donor request. Martin puts the pieces together. Since the doctor finds the donor match he has a few minutes to get himself to train station to meet the girl of his dreams. He goes to find his metro ticket and realizes it is not his bag. Thinking his chance to meet her is over, he ascends back up the rainy street and, boom, runs into her.

They want to ship Jake to Rhode Island. The young man who Norah was to marry happens to be Sami, the doctor in Montreal, whose father embarrassingly has to tell Norah’s father met someone and he had to hear about it on the internet. Norah looks it up and sees “Missed the train…met the girl.”

The package Abigail sent to Jake included several toys and a cassette tape Sarah recorded for Jake with her singing on it for the nights when she might not make it home. Marisol and Gabriel meet up again in the hospital in Canada. Norah’s father leaves her pamphlets for ICNY (International College of New York) to let her have a different destiny.
