The so­cially awk­ward geniuses are back for more hi-tech ad­ven­ture in Scor­pion (2014-cur­rent), as is their ge­nius-to­hu­man trans­la­tor and min­der Paige (Katharine McPhee). So what lies ahead for Wal­ter (Elyes Ga­bel), Happy (Ja­dyn Wong) and co? “Fir­ing, hir­ing, love and a wed­ding,” teases Ed­die Kaye Thomas, who plays be­haviourist, psy­chi­a­trist and med­i­cal doc­tor Toby. “And a lit­tle sav­ing the world on the side.”

Episode 1 (7 July) is a two-parter that sees the team fight­ing two wars. Wal­ter is on an un­comfy flight back to their HQ with his love in­ter­est Paige af­ter ru­in­ing her out-of-town date with ex-Navy SEAL Tim (Scott Porter) – ex­cept Walt isn’t will­ing to ad­mit his love. Scor­pion fin­ish the episode hunt­ing a hacker in Europe who has con­trol of US Naval in­stal­la­tions and maths guy Sly (Ari Stid­ham) plays a deadly card game.

There’s also re­la­tion­ship drama, but not just for Paige and Wal­ter. “Paige is frus­trated with him,” ex­plains Katharine, “but she is even more frus­trated when her con-artist mom Veron­ica [Lea Thomp­son, Kathryn in drama Switched At Birth, 2011-2017] shows up. We get to re­ally see a more ag­i­tated side of Paige this sea­son.” She’s con­fused too – “There is a dream se­quence [in episode 3, 21 July] that’s going to play over and over through the sea­son and it’s going to help them,” teases the ac­tress.

In episode 5 (4 Au­gust), Scor­pion helps a mu­seum re­store a rot­ting pil­lar from the an­cient world and foil a heist. FBI Agent Gallo (Robert Pa­trick) almost dies in episode 12 (22 Sept), forc­ing Wal­ter to re-ex­am­ine how he han­dles emo­tions. And in episode 23 (8 Dec), the team fight an un­der­ground coal fire and Toby and Happy do ev­ery­thing they can to make it to the al­tar in time.
