Episode 5 - Plight at the Museum
Team Scorpion’s simple job at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum turns deadly when they discover thieves robbing a rare gem exhibit in order to get materials needed to enrich a nuclear bomb.
Series overview
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 defence 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 behaviourist 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 humour 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.
