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.

Series Finale:

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.

Canceled and renewed TV show

“Scorpion” fans are still holding their breaths for a fifth season of the show, and last week’s episode, “Kenny and the Jet,” gave us some insight on what we might see if a new season comes to fruition.

While coming back from Hawaii, the plane Paige, Ralph, Sly and Cabe were aboard malfunctioned because of a stowaway in the wheel compartment. Happy and Toby went through their own bickering episodes and Walter was more conflicted than ever about whether to tell Paige about his “white lie.” Walt came close to confessing when he realized Paige was in serious danger, but by the end of the episode he, once again, delayed the inevitable.

So, here’s what we can gather from the episode:

Happy and Toby will most likely continue to have pregnancy struggles. They talked about Happy’s impulsive and dangerous behavior since finding out she isn’t pregnant, and it seems that she’s trying to distract herself from that heartbreak. I’m guessing that if she doesn’t get a positive test during the finale, her pregnancy will be put off until the middle of season five – if she gets pregnant at all.

Sly has a good chance at going on a date with Florence. Throughout last week’s episode, Sly was hyper-fixated on the odds of each situation he found himself in, including his odds of finding another woman who will love and accept him the way Megan did. But after beating astronomical odds during that disastrous flight, Cabe finally convinced Sly that it’s possible for him to find that woman. My guess is that Sly will ask Flo on a date in the finale and, if she says yes, we’ll see more of their relationship in the next season.

Little Ralph is growing up way too quickly. Paige was forced to come to the realization that she had to let him fight some of his own battles, including those on the romantic front. Patty let him down easy, but Ralph was still pretty heartbroken – first love is hard! But now that he’s on the path to recovering from this failed romance, he can move on. He’s already enrolled in college courses, so I don’t think it’s a farfetched idea to see him enrolled fulltime any time soon, but I also wouldn’t put it past him to tough it out through high school. He may be a genius, but he’s also going through puberty and may find solace in being around kids his own age during that time. Plus, he has a better chance at finding a romantic partner in a group of kids his own age! I personally think Ralph will choose to stay where he’s at and continue to help out Team Scorpion, but only time will tell.

Walter and Paige are destined to get into a fight. Knowing their characters, it will blow over rather quickly, but the longer Walt puts it off the longer it’s going to drag out. Paige has caught on and knows that he’s lying about something now, but she still doesn’t know what. I think she’s going to find it endearing that he was trying so hard to keep from hurting her, but she’s also going to feel betrayed because Walter snuck around behind her back. With the way the show tends to be written, Walter’s confession is either going to happen at the beginning of the finale episode or will be put off until the last second and left to carry over into season five. Either way, it’s going to put a huge strain on the Waige relationship and we’re all going to cry.

Buckle up fans, because the season four finale of “Scorpion” airs tonight and it looks like Walter and Happy are in an explosive situation! Tune into CBS at 10/9c and hit me up on Twitter to give me your thoughts on the episode!

Scorpion Crack!Vid #23

The following post contains spoilers from the Scorpion Season 2 finale. Proceed with caution.

Dr. Toby Curtis, we can’t believe you didn’t see this coming.

Team Scorpion‘s resident shrink can psychoanalyze just about anyone, but when it comes to decoding the habits of his own girlfriend, he seems to have missed a tiiiiny detail these last few months: She’s already taken.

Just moments after his co-workers rescued him from certain death during Monday’s Season 2 finale, Toby finally got down on one knee and popped the question to Happy, complete with a so-cheesy-it’s-adorable song and a confetti cannon.

But the proposal went awry as Happy announced she was already someone else’s wife. She then fled Scorpion headquarters without giving any more details. (Hey, remember that time Toby accidentally stood Happy up on their first date, and she gave him the cold shoulder for weeks? That suddenly seems like a massive overreaction.)

Of course, Toby and Happy’s engagement-gone-wrong wasn’t the only romantic development in the season closer. As Toby wallowed in his rejection, he convinced Walter to get his head on straight and go after Paige, who had just left for a weekend in Lake Tahoe with Tim Armstrong. Walter, realizing that he had been a fool to let Paige go on the trip, admitted aloud to Toby that he loves Paige, before hopping in the car to win her back.

We caught up with Scorpion executive producers Nick Wootton and Nick Santora, who revealed how the events of the finale will impact the show’s central relationships in Season 3. Plus, might we eventually meet other ex-Scorpion team members, who aren’t off their rocker a la Mark Collins? Read on for their insights:

TVLINE | At what point in the season did you know that (A) you wanted Toby to propose, and (B) you wanted to throw a huge curveball into Toby and Happy’s relationship?
NICK SANTORA: We knew at the beginning of the season that we wanted him to propose. We were talking about that last summer, and we knew we wanted to arc it out to the end of the season. But we didn’t know that Happy was going to be married to somebody else until around January.

Scorpion Season 2 FinaleTVLINE | Since you’ve already been renewed for a third season, how much have you already planned out, in terms of how this massive revelation will affect them?
NICK WOOTTON: They’re going to be affected very much so. This is certainly going to reverberate through the entire team. It’s our kicking-off point for the next season, for the emotional stories. How is this going to play out? Who is she married to? How did that happen? Where is that person? All of these things are going to be fodder for next season.

SANTORA: The resolution of it, and how it affects the team, will go on for a while. At the end of the day, Scorpion is a fun show. It’s made that way for a reason, and it’s a feel-good show. I wouldn’t expect [Toby and Happy] to be struck by lightning in any upcoming episodes, ending their relationship. [Laughs] Eventually, these characters and these relationships are all going to get where they need to be. It’s just going to be hard.

TVLINE | Early on in this episode, Mark Collins hinted at a major reason why Happy wouldn’t be able to accept Toby’s marriage proposal. Was he just messing with Toby’s head, or did he actually know Happy’s secret?
WOOTTON: Yes, we’re saying that he knows the answer. It’s the fun of that character. He’s a great lunatic, but he’s also part of this early Scorpion mythology that we don’t get into that much. He was there from the beginning, so he can give us insight into what they were up to before the show caught up with them.

TVLINE | Speaking of which, will we be seeing any other Scorpion origin stories in Season 3, or meeting other former team members?
SANTORA: We’ve talked about it. We did it in Season 1 of Prison Break [which Santora co-produced], and it really worked, where we just did an episode way back in the past before any of the characters were in prison. We saw who they were, what they were doing, revealed certain things, and we’ve always said that could be interesting with Scorpion — to see them in their early days and the forming of the team. We just have to find the right time to do it and the right way to do it.

TVLINE | Walter and Paige also had a really big moment in this finale, with Walter choosing to go after her. Will Walter’s realization that he loves Paige tee up a full-blown relationship, or are you planning to keep things slow between them?
SANTORA: It tees up more Waige. That’s as far as we can go. We can’t promise that in the first episode of next season, they’re going to be holding hands and running through a valley of golden flowers together. But at the same time, the Waige relationship will always be there. Even if it’s bubbling under the surface, even if they have relationships with other people, it’s always there. That’s our job — to keep it alive and let the audience know it’s not going anywhere.

WOOTTON: From what I’ve been seeing, it’s the pace of the Walter/Paige relationship [that the fans respond to]. They want more, more, more, which [speaks to] an obvious chemistry between these two actors and characters. What we’ve always tried to be honest [about] is: What would the reality of this look like for Walter O’Brien? Would he dive into a romantic relationship when his past has been so fraught with failure in that area? He doesn’t fail anywhere except in his personal life. Certainly, there are fans who want more faster, but as that proceeds down a very logical and, unfortunately for some, methodical path, the payoff will be even more sweet.

Scorpion season 2 finale recap: Toby or Not Toby

“Toby or Not Toby?” That is the biggest Scorpion question tonight.

Throughout the season, we’ve seen the focus shared a little bit more. It’s not just Walter’s story, and if season 2 has really gotten one thing right, it’s helping to tell the stories of each character. But of all of those stories, it seems that Dr. Tobias Curtis’ has been one of the most complicated. After a season of near-death and silly jokes, it’s Toby who has risen up to commit to Happy, give up his gambling, and buy an engagement ring for her. But that’s where we left off last week, when Mark Collins returned to knock Toby out, stuff him in a van, and take him to a warehouse, so I’ll ask again: Toby, or not Toby? This week, I hope the answer is “not Toby,” because otherwise, he might just end up dead.

The Backstory

We start up the finale seeing that Toby has been all tied up in a warehouse. Collins tells him to drink up because it’s going to be a long day. But of course, back in the warehouse, it’s just your every day jazz fest with Shadow Cabe and Paige. That’s what happens when you give your pseudo-girlfriend and her gentleman friend tickets to the jazz festival that you actually wanted to invite her to… WALTER.

But the situation shifts pretty quickly when Happy and the team realize that Toby never showed up for work. The first conclusion that Happy jumps to is that he’s back on a gambling bender. But when Cabe rejoins the group, he lets them know that Mark Collins has broken out of the asylum and is on the loose. Happy and Walter can’t help but think that Toby’s disappearance can’t be a coincidence. What’s tricky is that Sly knew where he was going the night before (because of the ring), but he doesn’t want to reveal because, you know, surprise engagements are surprise for a reason y’all.

WANT MORE?Keep up with all the latest from last night’s television by subscribing to our newsletter. Head here for more details.

Meanwhile, in a warehouse, Mark Collins and Toby are still hanging out like bros do. But instead of a nice game on the Xbox, we finally find out why Collins has taken Toby and gone nuts — he found out that Megan died (RIP, girl), and he figured Walter must have worked on brain freezing technology, so he’s going to leverage Toby for it. The gang ends up back at the parking garage where Toby was kidnapped, and that’s where they find his phone. Almost immediately, Collins manages to wire Toby’s phone that he left behind to call them. And then he explains that he has Toby tied to a metal chair, connected to a battery, and he’s not afraid to fry the doctor if he doesn’t get Walter’s research.

The Mission

Walter doesn’t want to turn it over because if Collins combines his information with Walter’s, he can create mind-reading capabilities that, for obvious reasons, would be a huge problem. Happy, Paige, and Shadow Cabe are sent to Millcrest Psychiatric Hospital to do as much research as possible and break his plan apart. They find that he created a signal booster to gain Internet access while he was there. That signal is used to transmit his crazy radio plan that has helped him communicate with Scorpion thus far. Shadow Cabe goes to the hospital kitchen, somehow uses his basic Jason Street knowledge to deduce that Collins documented his entire plan to transmit radio signals anonymously in oil on a metal table (because, why not?), and sends it back to Walter and Sly, but the team isn’t working fast enough because Collins jumps in and shocks Toby for the first time, and guys, Toby screams are NOT very fun at all.

NEXT: Surprises are no fun if you ruin them

Happy hops in to tell Collins to stop, and Collins hangs up after demanding the research. But it turns out that he’s not tortured at all — he was playing the screams for show. But he tells Toby that he will die today, just not at his hands. I don’t like that foreshadowing. The team also figures out that Toby’s not being tortured, and from there, they continue to work on where Collins is transmitting his cell signal from. As the team pulls up to a farm, a man starts firing at Happy, Shadow Cabe, and Paige. Armstrong protects Paige, but Happy goes full badass and tackles the guy and steals his gun because don’t mess with a woman’s man, am I right? Meanwhile, at a cell tower, Walter has climbed to the top with Sly’s “keytar” that he’s going to use to “silence the transmissions” and figure out where Collins’ transmission is coming from, but while on the phone with the team, Paige’s poor use of phrasing when referencing how Shadow Cabe “laid” on her, causes Walter to drop the keytar. But that’s the least of their worries.

Back at the warehouse, Collins is making homemade acid and pulling out floss. Unfortunately, it’s not for hygiene sake. Toby starts to try and break him down mentally, but ultimately, it’s Collins that gets the upper hand when he goes through Toby’s stuff and finds the engagement ring that he was planning on proposing to Happy with. Collins calls the team back and reveals that he has “Happy’s fiancé.” She slams the breaks on the car she’s driving, not giving an actual answer, and immediately blames herself for Toby’s kidnapping.

Back at the top of the tower, Walter and Toby have to use their phone to play the same song across all stations to “quiet” the signal and figure out where Collins is transmitting from. In a classic Cabe move, he only has Conway Twitty. OH CABE. They identify the tower, but Collins is still hard at work in the warehouse. Remember all that dental floss? He’s stringing it up everywhere. In an attempt to stop him, Toby kicks a book and knocks over a bottle of ammonia, which really ticks Collins off. Toby begs to call Happy one more time, but Collins tells him that he has to admit that Collins is smarter than Walter and that he’s won. Toby agrees and says it, and Collins looks like he’s never been more pleased. Toby goes through the group and begins to say his goodbyes. He tells Happy that he loves her and that he always will and then after a long pause tells Sly to take care of Happy. In that pause, Sly listens and is able to figure out where Toby and Collins are.

They arrive at the warehouses and split up to try and find Happy. Collins has set up an intricate floss system though, which if tripped, will pour acid all over Toby, killing him. Happy and Sly find Toby pretty quickly, but the floss has already been shaved down above his head, and Toby doesn’t have much time until it breaks. Shadow Cabe and Paige show up, but Walter is busy chasing Collins. After he finds him, it doesn’t take much to stop him. Walter takes him down with a pipe because Walter is LIT, y’all. But guess what Collins uses against Walter? His EMOTIONS. He says that Walter will eventually let him go because he has to save Toby, and then he asserts his dominance as all powerful men do — by comparing himself to a wolf spider, who lives alone. But Walter is civilized now, so he leaves to go save Toby.

They work together and determine that the floss is like guitar strings and that all of them that make the same note can be cut. Who’s in charge of identifying the notes? Our resident Jimmy Page — Shadow Cabe. I’m initially shocked that it’s not the more predictable songbird, Katharine McPhee, but let’s be honest: would you want someone determining the notes of your dental floss of death if they’d been in the American Idol bottom two not just once, but TWICE? (Just kidding — we all know I got the McPheever and that Paige is my main girl. You were robbed, sister.) But as the team gets closer, the jar of acid starts to shift and Toby admits that he does have a ring and that he loves Happy, and in her own way, she answers his not-proposal by running into the floss to pull him out of the way, risking her own life. They both survive, he calls her a keeper, and I stress vomit because I don’t want to recap a world that #Quintis isn’t in. Again, I repeat — I’m not crying… this is just genius sweat coming directly from my eyes. Safe and sound, the group returns to go back for Collins.

NEXT: The problem with brother husbands

Somehow, Collins has managed to sneak on a bus, but Shadow Cabe infiltrates the bus and cuffs Collins. Super chill about being caught, Collins asks how Walter found him. He gets a dose of the weapon he uses against Walter. Walter channeled his humanity and figures out that Collins was headed to South Carolina because it was the one place that still meant something to him and made him happy. TAKE THAT CHILDHOOD PSYCHOLOGY.

Back at the warehouse, Paige and Shadow Cabe are packing to go to the jazz fest, and Paige starts to have doubts. And I get it. On the surface, Paige and Armstrong are perfect, but the execution is just super off, like when Katharine McPhee appeared on Randy Jackson’s Music Club, Vol. 1 back in 2008. But let’s be honest, we didn’t come here for Paige and Shadow Cabe. We came for #Quintis. Toby pulls Happy aside and she tells him not to ask her a question, so he respects her wishes and doesn’t ask her a question — he sings her the cheesiest, Toby-est song ever about how he loves her, but it’s adorable. After he finishes, he gets down on one knee and asks Happy to marry him to which she says, “no.” Why? Because she’s married to someone else. Now I am crying because Walter proved it himself: Emotions are okay.

Devastated, Toby retreats and asks no one to bother him as Happy leaves the warehouse. Shadow Cabe, super awkwardly asks Paige to get ready to go. Walter blames himself for letting their relationship continue and how the fallout will tear the team apart. Then he goes off on a hypothetical situation that mirrors his and Paige’s, but he backs away when Paige pushes him about it. Paige gives him a clear chance to ask her to stay because, as Paige says, “It’s a mess.” But Walter doesn’t fight her — he says it’s best if she goes, and so she does.

Talking to Walter after she leaves, Toby starts to yell at him and tells him that he’s letting the love of his life walk away out of stubbornness. Toby goes on, telling Walter that he just let her walk out the door with another man. It’s enough to trigger Walter to pull himself together and admit that he loves Paige. He grabs his keys and tries to stop her. He calls her phone, but she won’t answer, so it seems that Walter is following Shadow Cabe and Paige off to Lake Tahoe.


  • “I’m not waiting here like a damsel.” —Happy, having her BEST episode of the entire series. I thought this was going to be Toby’s show, but honestly guys…
  • The Dolphin Trainer’s Daughter?” —Collins

    “Some of the prose is very sharp.”- Toby

  • “Two things that won’t help: self-hatred and booze. Tonight will have both, but don’t make either a habit.” —Cabe, breaking everyone’s collective #Quintis-loving heart
  • Shadow Cabe, as Toby put it, was the best version of his “big, sexy, muscled Navy SEAL” self tonight, but man was he a pain in the butt.
  • I do not for the life of me understand why Paige puts emotional decision making in Walter’s hands.
  • How much do you want to bet that Armstrong and Paige’s car crashes? I KNOW, I’M SORRY.
  • Did you see how heartbroken Happy was? I know she’s kind of in hot water, but I just can’t be mad at her right now.

And that’s it, you crazy geniuses. Speaking as a Paige/new-Walter, I’m completely exhausted. Who do you think Happy is married to? Can Quintis rebound from this? Do you agree with/hate me for that car crash theory at the beginning of season 3? And how much do you bet that we haven’t seen the last of Collins? We have a whole summer to think about it. It’s been an honor being at the helm of this crazy Scorpion ship with you, using my common man’s IQ for a thinking man’s show, and making as many Katharine McPhee references as possible. Remember to check your emotions at the door, divorce any longstanding/forgotten spouses, and we’ll pick up where we left off in the fall.
