‘Scorpion’ Episode Guide (Oct. 16): Team Scorpion is Exposed to Toxic Vapor

“Nuke Kids on the Block” (10/16/17) – While decommissioning an old nuclear missile, a simple accident causes Team Scorpion to endure exposure to toxic vapor while trying to prevent the nuke from detonating.

Also, Paige confronts Happy about constantly tagging along with her and Walter, on “Scorpion,” Monday, Oct. 16 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Tyler Barnhardt (Airman Jacobs), Delon De Metz (Airman Pendergraft), Jordan Preston (Neon Owner), Merrick McCartha (Jeremy), Scott Holmes (Hipster Waiter), Bianca Lopez (Maitre D’), Joe Roche (Lawyer #1), Peter Spruyt (Lawyer #2), Tatiana Carr (Lawyer #5), Jonathan Bray (Lawyer #3), and William Charlton (Lawyer #4).

“Nuke Kids on the Block” was written by Paul Grellong & Nicholas Wootton. It was directed by Elodie Keene.

The CBS drama series “Scorpion” is a high-octane drama about eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team of brilliant misfits who are the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age.

As Homeland Security’s think tank, O’Brien’s Team Scorpion includes Toby Curtis, an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; his new wife, 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. However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with one another’s humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them.

They rely on Paige Dineen to translate the world for them, who has a young, gifted son, Ralph, and a budding relationship with Walter. At last, these quirky masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises while also helping one another learn how to fit in.

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

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