TV show description:
This dramatic TV show is based on the life of Walter O’Brien. O’Brien (played by Elyes Gabel) is a self-proclaimed computer expert and an eccentric genius. He and his team of brilliant misfits — the Scorpion team — comprise the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age — Homeland Security’s new think tank.
Toby Curtis (Eddie Kaye Thomas) is an expert behaviorist who can read anyone. Happy Quinn (Jadyn Wong) is a mechanical prodigy while Sylvester Dodd (Ari Stidham) is a statistics guru.
Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo (Robert Patrick) — a man who shares a harrowing history with O’Brien.
While this socially awkward group is comfortable with each other’s humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them. As a result, they rely on Paige Dineen (Katharine Hope McPhee) — who has a young, gifted son — to translate the world for them.
These nerdy masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises. They also help each other learn how to fit in.
Episode #93 — A Lie in the Sand
Team Scorpion heads to Northeast Africa where they must carefully navigate a minefield in order to save the lives of local villagers. Also, Paige and Walter’s relationship takes a shocking turn, and Toby and Happy make an important decision.
First aired: April 16, 2018.
