Episode 6 - Tech, Drugs, and Rock ‘n Roll
 
Walter’s attempt to “normalise” goes horribly wrong when a nefarious virus is uploaded to his computer, turning Team Scorpion’s new “smart” building project into a burning death trap with people locked inside, on a special 90-minute episode of SCORPION. (Uk broadcast part 1 - 45minutes)
 
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.
