‘Scorpion’ Episode Guide (April 11): Security at Fort Knox Tested

“Hard Knox” (04/11/16) – Team Scorpion is hired by the Department of Defense to break into Fort Knox and “steal” a precious artifact in order to test their security, but they must break in a second time when they find something dangerous hidden inside the object, on “Scorpion,” Monday, April 11 (9:00-9:59 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

“Hard Knox” was written by Scott Sullivan and directed by Omar Madha.

CBS’s “Scorpion,” inspired by a true story, is a high-octane drama about eccentric genius Walter O’Brien 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, an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn, a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd, a statistics guru. Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo, 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, 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.

“Scorpion” stars Elyes Gabel (Walter O’Brien), Robert Patrick (Cabe Gallo), Katharine McPhee (Paige Dineen), Eddie Kaye Thomas (Toby Curtis), Jadyn Wong (Happy Quinn) and Ari Stidham (Sylvester Dodd).

“Scorpion” is produced by CBS Television Studios. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Nick Santora, Nicholas Wootton, Justin Lin, Heather Kadin, Scooter Braun and Walter O’Brien serve as executive producers.
