Episode 1 - Satellite of Love
 
The new Director of Homeland Security reunites the team when a nuclear powered Russian satellite is knocked out of orbit and must be diverted before it detonates over Southern California. Also, Paige and Walter must face their feelings for each other after hospital footage reveals Paige kissed him.  Alana De La Garza guest stars as the new head of Homeland Security and KISS frontman Gene Simmons makes a cameo appearance as himself.
 
Series overview
 
Scorpion is inspired by a true story - its a high-octane drama about eccentric genius Walter O'Brien (played by Elyes Gabel) and his team of brilliant misfits who are the last line of defence against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age.  O'Brien's "Scorpion" team includes Toby Curtis (played by Eddie Kaye Thomas), an expert behaviourist who can read anyone, Happy Quinn (played by Jadyn Wong), a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvestor Dodd (played by Ari Stidham), a statistics guru.  Pooling their extensive knowledge to solve mind boggling dramas amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo (played by Robert Patrick), who shares a harrowing history with O'Brien.
 
However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with each other's humour and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they rely on Paige Dineen (played by Katharine McPhee), who has a young gifted son, to translate the world for them.  These nerdy masterminds have at last found the perfect job; a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solves the nation's crises, while also helping each other learn how to fit in.
