‘Scorpion’ Episode Guide (Oct. 10): Walter’s Accidentally Launched Into Space

“It Isn’t the Fall That Kills You” (10/10/16) – When Walter is accidentally launched into space in a rocket, he hallucinates about Paige as his oxygen runs low, and Team Scorpion works feverishly to find a way to bring him home before he suffocates, on “Scorpion,” Monday, Oct. 10 (10:00-11:00, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

Guest starring in “It Isn’t the Fall That Kills You” are Scott Porter (Tim Armstrong), Andy Buckley (Elia), Jake Renner (Consul), Christopher Showerman (Captain), and Rasha Goel (Reporter).

“It Isn’t the Fall That Kills You” was written by Nick Santora and Scott Sullivan. It was directed by Sanford Bookstaver.

The CBS drama series “Scorpion,” inspired by a true story, 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 new think tank, O’Brien’s Team Scorpion 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 one another’s humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they rely on Paige Dineen, who has a young, gifted son, Ralph, to translate the world for them. 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 (Cabe Gallo), Katharine McPhee (Paige Dineen), Jadyn Wong (Happy Quinn), Ari Stidham (Sylvester Dodd), Eddie Kaye Thomas (Toby Curtis), 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.
