Touch returns to FOX tonight with the bonus episode “The Road Not Traveled”. The title is in the tradition of the show to title episodes and include references to various concepts of Quantum Mechanics, or perhaps more appropriately: Quantum Mysticism. In this case they seem to be leaning towards the idea that every situation in reality that offers multiple outcomes creates alternate dimensions where each possibility occurred. Sounds possible!
The title is particularly apt for this episode of Touch since it is not necessarily a part of Touch‘s fall run, which officially begins October 26th when Touch will be teamed with the final season of Fringe. Not that the episode truly takes place in an alternate dimensions from what I can tell. Here’s the plot-line from FOX:
Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) finds that his car has mysteriously stopped in the town where he got his start as a reporter. Now he suspects that his old mentor is up to something illegal.
