Scorpion (CBS 2014, Elyes Gabel, Eddie Kaye Thomas)

Scorpion

Scorpion, inspired by a true story, is a high-octane drama about eccentric genius Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) and his team of brilliant misfits who comprise the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age.

As Homeland Security’s new think tank, O’Brien’s “Scorpion” team includes Toby Curtis (Eddie Kaye Thomas), an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn (Jadyn Wong), a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd (Ari Stidham), a statistics guru. Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo (Robert Patrick), who shares a harrowing history with O’Brien.

However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with each other’s humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they rely on Paige Dineen (Katharine McPhee), who has a young, gifted son, to translate the world for them. At last, these nerdy masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises, while also helping each other learn how to fit in.

From CBS’s press release, August 2016…
SEASON FINALE: Team Scorpion rescued Toby from the deadly web that their unstable ex-Scorpion member, Mark Collins (guest star Joshua Leonard), built in order to manipulate Walter and the team. Back at the garage, Toby finally proposed to Happy, who was forced to admit she is already married and thus couldn’t accept. After Toby’s devastating predicament, Walter decided to drive to Lake Tahoe to declare his feelings for Paige, who was on a romantic vacation with Tim.
COMING UP: In the season premiere, Team Scorpion must put aside their personal and romantic troubles when anonymous hackers with unknown motives take control of targeted U.S. military aircraft and war ships and point America’s weaponry at its own cities.
