The "Touch" season finale airs on May 31 and Zap2it chatted with star Roxana Brusso who plays Sheri. There have been some big turns for her character, including finding out that she works for Astercor. Brusso gives us a look at what's coming.
Brusso tells us about Amelia and what her reality means for the show. "You know that Amelia did exist, that something happened to her, and that she might still be alive. So, that stuff is coming to play, especially in Martin's (Kiefer Sutherland) life and Jake's (David Mazouz). Because, we know that, like Jake, Amelia was the same way. The board and care facility ended up taking her away, and nobody has seen her since. Also, Martin is realizing that there are a lot of people out there that know about children like Jake, and that they want to take him away. So he is going to »
Tim Kring’s Touch started off as a mediocre drama that packaged coincidence together with logic and wrapped it up in a tiny little box of autism. However, if you stuck with the drama, which I thankfully did, you were exposed to quite possibly the best feel-good drama of the 2012 TV season. Touch is a series that makes you think that the impossible can happen and that the problems of the world, specifically your own, can be fixed if the right sequence of events fall into the correct ratio. Sure, sometimes the scenarios can be outlandish. Sometimes you may get hit with a story arc that takes place in outer space, but has something to do with the buying and selling of children. Yet, these far-fetched situations seamlessly ground the show in one word – hope. Something we can all use.
Touch heads into its 2-hour finale with several looming questions. »

Why is Sheri (Roxana Brusso) using the Amelia sequence to break Jake's (David Mazouz) brain? Why is the company searching among autistic kids to find the 36 righteous ones? That's the big question that's came out of this week's "Touch."
The stories about how we're all connected continue on and are as compelling as always. They say that, as humans, we have a deep need to find patterns and the show draws that out. We thrill to find out that we really are (if the show is to be believed) all one step away from each other. The show's conceit is that Jake really does have some power that is beyond just being good at math. His mind just knows what's going to happen and sees the pattern.
So, what are the 36 righteous ones? Why are they searching for them among autistic kids? Is it because they see the world in a completely different way? »
Touch follows the tale of Martin Bohm (Sutherland) and his struggle to connect with his young autistic son (David Mazouz), a boy who sees patterns that connect the people and events of the world. Other castmembers include Danny Glover, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Roxana Brusso.
The network took a gamble by giving Touch a special premiere in January, two months before the show would start airing regularly. The initial episode's performance was solid with a 3.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 12.01 million total viewers. But, would that audience remember to tune in again in mid-March?
They did, or at least most of them did. Touch returned on Thursday, March 22nd to a 3.3 rating and »
