Stilll dealing with Megan's death six weeks earlier, the team must stop a cyber terrorist, using code written by college students, who is threatening to shut down the Federal Reserve, hence wreck the US economy, demanding a quarter of a billion bitcoin in the next 72 hours. Sly trails the ransom demand to a local university, so they each go undercover, using a tracking device: Happy as a sorority pledge, Walter as a visiting drama instructor, Sylvester as a wrestling transfer student, Cabe as a campus security guard, and Toby as professor applying for a position in the Psychology Department headed by a former rival who stole his fiancee. To foil the hacker, they must get into the school's top-secret lab server, a highly sophisticated quantum computer, to kill the ransom-ware, which could be fatal for all parties. Walter also conducts an experiment which prove that Ray's firefighting partner's death wasn't Ray's fault by using Tuggle's tank that Cabe's friend acquired from police evidence storage, giving Ray the peace of mind to go back into the world again, leaving Scorpion headquarters. —KGF Vissers

#TeamScorpion begins with Sly showing Ralph a Super Fun Guy comic that’s great for the time capsule he’s working on. Toby gives him a photo of him graduating high school as valedictorian. Happy says he was cute then asks what happened.
Happy gives him a large metal nut. They ask if Walter wants to contribute and he calls it a waste of time capsule. Ralph leaves for school and Walter tells Paige the future is more important than the past. Happy has made a photo frame for Megan.
Sly says he misses her every day but it’s been six weeks. He shows Walter a photo of he and Megan and he says no thanks. Cabe shows up with an evidence box. Walter pulls out a tank. He’s working on Ray’s dead partner’s oxygen tank trying to prove Ray is innocent.
He wants Ray to stop living in the past and move forward efficiently. Paige prods Walter about grieving for Megan and he says her death has “put him off.” Walter says Ray has barely left the camper since the anniversary of his partner’s death is approaching.
Paige thinks Walter is avoiding pain. Cabe says Cooper is there and has a hot one. She tells the team that ransomeware has impact Homeland Security. She says the demand was only $20k. Toby says that was just a test run to see if it worked.
Cooper says they’re threatening to shut down the Federal Reserve if they don’t get a huge pile of Bitcoin. Toby says the Fed shutting down would screw the blackmailers as well. They talk about the dire consequences to our economy.
Cooper says get in the server and kill it. Walter says the code is constantly changing like it’s adapting. Cooper says the NSA found some emails and found a match to Terrance Cooley, a computer science professor who was recently found dead.
Sly finds a ghosted entry path uploaded from the school’s computer system. Cooley was teaching and the ransomware was uploaded in the student activities center. There were many groups meeting there at the time but Happy has an idea.
They plan to go to the university and look for the device that uploaded it. Cooper says agents can’t handle this and Sly says no way is he going back. Toby says he’s in and Paige says it sounds fun. Cabe says they have to infiltrate the campus groups.
Cabe shows Sly how to wrestle and Paige teaches Happy the sorority song. Happy walks out. Cabe shows Sly the tights he needs to wear. Paige makes her put on an outfit but she rips the sweater in half. Cooper says Cabe is going to be with campus security, Walter is a guest professor in the drama department.
Toby has a job interview as a psych professor. Quincy is his nemesis and he has to interview with it. Cabe says man up and do the job. Happy will be Suzy Lee who is rushing the sorority. Sly is the wrestling guy, Cabe is a security intern, and the others are all ready.
Paige says she now knows why they all had such a hard time in college. They head to campus and they are all in a dorm room. Happy hands out scanners for them to detect the device they need. Paige is monitoring their comms.
Toby says he’s going to make the most of this college experience. Sly wants to go see vintage spacesuits. Paige reads off their assignments and sends them off. Sly is at the frat and he’s not happy. Paige says play the part.
They call Sly “Tyrannosaurus Sex” and welcome him warmly. But then they prank him by dropping jocks on him. They tell him they don’t take transfers. He says he thinks he just got hepatitis and this is just like the last time he was in college.
Walter is out of place as a drama professor. They refer to him as a generation behind. Paige says they are all EQ and be patient. Paige says just get close and one girl tells Walter that’s a micro-aggression. He says if it’s micro, it shouldn’t be a problem then tells them to learn a trade since they will fail.
Happy is with the sorority sisters rushing out. They start a speed date event and are told the questions may be wacky. Happy gives serious answers and shows she’s clueless. One of the rush girls Mavis asks her why she’s there. She says everyone there is nice except for her and calls her mean and sarcastic.
Happy glares. Mavis asks wouldn’t it be nice to have a surrogate family and advises her to lower her shield. Toby complains about the interview and Paige says suck it up and go meet the psych department. Toby recognizes a Patriots player, Willie McGinest. Toby annoys him with math and science.
Toby is shown in to the departmental interview. He sees Quincy there alone and Quincy says he told the board not to come and calls this a passive aggressive mood. Quincy says they’re both doctors and Toby says he’s a psychologist, Toby is a doctor.
Paige tells him to get close, cut the crap and scan. Toby says he did come to humiliate him and says he hated being bested by him. He holds out his hand for him to shake. Paige says get closer and he hugs him. Paige says he’s their guy.
Cabe is with a security guy who says he wanted to be a cop. Paige tells Cabe to get to the psych building and they kidnap and drug Quincy. Paige tells the others to stay in place until they confirm. Toby checks Quincy’s cell phone and says he doesn’t know about any ransom software.
Toby says he can do whatever he has to in order to get him to talk. He says he has acid and throws it on him. Quincy screams and Toby says his phone is clean. Happy asks herself why she can’t be normal and puts her com back in – she hears an argument in another room.
Paige says she got a big ping. Happy makes a listening device from a hair dryer. She hears a guy and girl talking about Cooley’s death. Happy busts in and says she’s with Homeland and give her the laptop and come with her. The guy talks back and she chops him in the throat.
She tells them to come with her if they want to live. They see an SUV pull up and run the other way. Happy has the laptop in a backpack. They hop a wall and run into some gardens. They are chased by a gunman. Happy points them to a shed. They hide inside. Happy tells them to shut up so she can think.
Happy has them hide and she looks around. They make some noise and the guy gets closer. He opens the door and Happy uses large nuts and a chainsaw to injure him and take him down. The kids tell the team that Cooley told them about a friend named Ryder who wanted them to write code.
She says they never met the guy and they just wrote the code then Cooley wound up dead. She says they uploaded it to the Quantum. Walter says they can’t go up against a Quantum like this and Sly explains they are rare and highly precise computers.
Walter says no human can outthink a Quantum. Sly says the lasers can malfunction. Cabe gets a call from Cooper with a lead. Ryder sent another email saying there’s an hour left. Walter leaves Paige with the kids and says they need to get to the Quantum.
Quincy is still tied up and he says Toby is the reason Amy left because he was chronically gambling and blew all their savings. He calls him an ego maniac and narcissist who is wrongly blaming him for their relationship issues. Roby glares and walks out.
Cabe warns Quincy to keep his mouth shut about this. Walter, Cabe, Sly, Happy and Toby go to the Quantum and Walter says they need to insert a mirror to reflect part of the power. The problem is the room is negative 100 degrees Celsius. Toby says she’ll die in there.
Happy says if she drills too fast, the gas in the cube will spark. They discuss all the ways they could die doing this. They go get the vintage spacesuits Sly mentioned before. They do a “Right Stuff” walk across campus. They head inside to try and make this work.
Toby monitors their vitals and says they have 12 minutes left. Sly almost falls on it but Happy catches his suit. Happy starts drilling into the containment box. Sly goes next with a foldable mirror to reflect the laser. A bass amp from the room above starts shaking the room.
Cabe sees the dance party going on. He knocks the deejay out of the way and says show’s over. They call him old man and e flashes his badge and says he’s DEA and wants to see their backpacks. They all go running off. Sly’s temperature is getting too high and Paige talks him down.
He’s able to deploy the mirror and Walter drops the drive and can’t pick it up because of the big space gloves. He finally gets it and plugs it in. They take the ransomware down and it’s safe. Walter apologizes to Paige who says they have a problem.
Ryder is with Paige and has a gun on her. He says give up the money or she dies and tells them to bring the Bitcoin wallet. He asks where the kids are and Paige lies and says they took off since they were scared and tells him to search the apartment if he wants.
Her bluff works and he doesn’t which is good since the kids are hiding in a closet. Ryder tells Walter to meet them at the fountain or she dies. Walter talks about how the fountain is a good drop off spot. Cabe has an idea and they head out.
Ryder is at the fountain with Paige when the security guy comes up and says the concert got busted up. Ryder asks him to go away and the security guy offers to take a picture since Ryder lied and says it’s their anniversary. They get their location from the snap.
Cabe sneaks up and tackles him and Cabe gets the gun. He lets the security guy slap the cuffs on Ryder. The Fed is safe and Cabe says no Mad Max sequel and the two kids are arrested too for their illegal hacking. Toby says college still sucks.
Sly says they’re in Scorpion House now, a great fraternity. The gang splits up – Happy gives Toby a lift and Paige gives Walter a ride. She says she couldn’t have imagined in college working with a team like them. He makes a joke and she tells him she appreciates it.
The drama kids get snarky with Walter who takes one of the scripts from them. He does a few lines from Romeo and Juliet. Paige is stunned by his tearful performance. The drama kids are wowed. Walter says it’s not difficult then walks away. Paige says it was amazing.
She asks why not fake emotions all the time and he says he watched some Shakespeare videos for this assignment. He says she’s his Cliff notes. She says his pain and loss was real but Walter says they need to get back for the experiment.
Toby is glum and Happy turns on the lights and the radio. She says he can check one thing off his college bucket list. He asks if they’re streaking but she lets him lead her in a slow dance. He asks what she’s doing and she says letting down her shield and lays her head on his chest.
Back at the garage, Walter finds Ray sitting in front of the experiment with the tank. He say the alarm went off and he opened the curtains. He asks why his partner’s oxygen tank is there. Walter says he was checking it for defects.
Ray asks why he would do that and Walter says he was worried about him. Ray says he’s been there for a while watching. He asks what if it was defective, what would happen. He says there would be bubble trails. There are none. Ray walks away sadly.
But then Paige calls him back as they see bubble trails form. Walter says it’s not his fault that Danny died. Ray hugs him and says he never thought he’d have another friend like Danny. Paige smiles. Ray says he’s been hiding out in his Gremlin for 10 years for something he didn’t do.
Ray says it’s time to say hi to the world. He tells Walter he’s like a cold sore and you never know when he’ll be back. Paige hugs Ray who whispers that she needs to go to Walter since he can’t come to her on his own. Ray says tell the others bye and he heads out.
Walter says he was just getting used to that weirdo and Paige says he hugged him back and he wasn’t faking that. She promises to get the time capsule out of there by Friday. He looks at a picture of he and Megan from years ago then adds it to the time capsule.

The Old College Try
11 scorpion episode season 2
The last episode of “Scorpion” (which was a while ago since it took a bit of a break over Thanksgiving) was easily the most heartbreaking episode that they have ever had. Megan passed away and everyone’s hearts were broken including ours. We expect that Sylvester and Walter are going to have a very hard time bouncing back from this and that there will be a long healing process.
It has been six weeks since Megan’s passing and Sylvester seems to be holding up okay, but misses her every day (Happy even made him a huge picture frame full of hearts for photos of Sylvester and Megan). Walter on the other hand seems to be “fine”, but Paige calls him out on hiding his feelings the past few weeks (which of course he is). Walter is focusing on Ray and the upcoming anniversary of his partner’s death instead of dealing with his own feelings about Megan’s passing. Walter is trying to prove that the tank Ray’s partner had on was defective so that Ray wouldn’t feel like he was to blame for the death and Walter is able to prove that it wasn’t Ray’s fault! This helps Ray move himself forward and out of the garage. He’s ready to face the world… have we lost Ray forever?
The case of the week sent our team back to college, which was an experience that everyone hated (except for Paige, who thought it was a lot of fun). Seeing team Scorpion take on these different roles to infiltrate the school was priceless including Happy ripping up a fraternity sweater and Sylvester’s first “wrestling move” consisting of backing out the door on all fours.
Toby had to face the man that he blames for stealing his fiancee, but this man reminds Toby that he spent more time at the card tables and race tracks then with his woman and that he really has no one to blame but himself. Toby’s expression said it all… he knows he messed that up. Happy sees that Toby is feeling down, and after having a small break through of her own (realizing she needs to let down her shield) she shares a dance with Toby. So romantic!
We loved this episode! After having a few episodes in a row that broke our hearts into a million pieces over Megan’s death, we really needed a fun silly episode like this. Any episode that has our team going under cover and being put into situations that make them uncomfortable is a win in our books. Also, we have been aching for Toby and Happy to get back together and we finally have some movement on this. Episode grade: A

Scorpion recap: The Old College Try
If Good Will Hunting taught us anything, it’s that a ragtag genius can stumble his way onto a college campus, find his full potential, and then literally drive off into the sunset. And if Scorpion teaches us anything, it’s that life is a little more difficult than that. This week, #TeamScorpion is thrown back onto campus to uncover a hacker and save the American economic system…because all the spots in English 101 were taken.
But we start in the garage, six weeks after Megan passed away. Ralph is hanging out with Paige and the team and working on his time capsule project. Sylvester, Happy, and Toby take turns offering contributions for the project, but when Paige asks Walter if he wants to add to the capsule, he scoffs. He tells them that life is about moving forward, not looking behind.
In the six weeks that have passed since Megan died, Walter’s clearly forgotten that whole hand-holding with Paige thing. He’s back to shutting people out, but Paige calls him out because that’s what Paige and I do. We’re pushers. Finally, Walter admits that he was “put off” by his sister’s death, but he’s more focused on Ray’s partner’s death anniversary. He’s hoping to prove that Ray’s partner’s death wasn’t actually Ray’s fault.
BUT KATHERINE COOPER IS HERE. And that means it’s time for a mission.
Katherine tells the team about a hacker who is using ransomware to threaten a Federal Reserve System shutdown that will crash the American economic system. The NSA was able to track it to a Professor Cooley, who was found shot dead in his apartment. The computer he was using is linked to a room, which was used by four different groups: a wrestling group, a sorority, a drama club, and a psychology group. The team members have to wear a communications device that will go off if it picks up any signal that they are near the hacking equipment.
Each member of the team gets to tackle a group. Sylvester is assigned to the wrestling team, though all he admits to ever wrestling is his emotions. Oh, Sylvester. You deserve all the love. At first it seems like he’ll fit right in with the group when they give him the (best) nickname: Tyrannosaurs Sex. But it’s quickly followed by them dropping a load of old jockstraps on him because boys are gross until they’re, like, 27. No hacking signal, though.
Walter is assigned to teach a drama class full of overly politically correct students. They eventually tell him to take his trigger words and microaggressions elsewhere. Walter doesn’t mind because they don’t set off the hacking signal either.
WANT MORE?Keep up with all the latest from last night’s television by subscribing to our newsletter. Head here for more details.
Toby’s assignment is the most personal — he gets chosen to apply for a psychology teaching job under his old nemesis Quincy Berkstead, who once stole his fiancée. In the waiting room, Toby happens upon former NFL linebacker Willie McGinest, who just happens to be working on a project focusing on positive attitudes. Toby does anything but offer a positive attitude, but he’s able to swallow his pride long enough to get close to Quincy to get a read, setting off the signal. Paige is able to alert Cabe, who is working as a campus cop, and Cabe shows up and chloroforms Quincy.
The problem is, even once they get Quincy back, question him, and run his phone, there’s nothing tying him to the hacking. Quincy does take the opportunity to throw Toby some harsh love and let him know that the only reason his fiancée left him was because he wasn’t a good boyfriend to her and that all he’s done is blame Quincy.
NEXT: Happy just wants to be normal
Last on the roster is Happy, who has been enlisted to rush Pi Upsilon, which Paige happens to be an alumnus of. I don’t mean to be harsh, but is anyone else super surprised that Paige went to college? What happened between college and her latest waitressing job? Maybe a degree in musical theater? A failed attempt at starring in a Marilyn Monroe-themed musical? I DON’T KNOW.
Regardless, Paige works with Happy to prep her for sorority life so that she can raid the sorority house for a signal. Happy is possibly the worst sorority girl ever, but that’s also why we love Happy. She’s practically given up when one of the pledge sisters confronts her and asks her why she wouldn’t want an extended family like this. In true college form, it causes Happy to have an existential crisis and ask herself in the mirror, “Why aren’t you normal?”
But then she overhears a boy and a girl discussing Professor Cooley, so she makes a listening device of a hair dryer, breaks into their room, pulls them out along with their laptop, and makes a run for it. They escape just as a gunman named Ryder approaches, who chases them into a garden. They hide in a shed, and as Ryder approaches, Happy fixes nuts on a chainsaw. As soon as the door opens, she shoots the nuts off and hits the gunman in the face.
The two kids worked with Cooley and reveal that the ransomware is being protected by a Quantum, which is a ridiculously smart computer. Walter is going to upload his anti-code to the Quantum, but the problem is, it’s kept in a vacuum that is kept at a specific temperature that, if tampered with, will almost certainly lead to the computer exploding and killing everyone around it.
The Revised Execution
The team puts on astronaut suits and work on the computer from within. Even against the odds, Happy drills into the computer. She’s able to break in, allowing Sly to set up a mirror to redirect the computer’s laser, which lets Walter get his coding into the computer.
Sylvester begins to panic, causing his body temperature, and the room’s temperature, to increase. They have to find a way to calm him down, so Paige brings up Megan, which Walter hates. Her plan works, though, and Walter completes the mission. It works, but there’s a bigger problem now. Paige is being held at gunpoint by Ryder, who recovered quite nicely from those chainsaw nuts.
Ryder, who worked to put the ransomware in place, demands his money. Ryder holds Paige out in the campus quad, allowing Cabe’s rent-a-cop friend to swing by on his Segway for a chat. Cabe sneaks in from behind, tackling Ryder. Ryder tries to grab his gun, but Paige utilizes her superpower, which is stepping on people’s wrists when they’re causing issues. Is it understated? Sure. Effective. YOU BET.
Walter and Paige begin to walk back, and they pass the drama kids, who make a snide comment about Walter not being able to act. He snags Romeo and Juliet away from the kids and throws down a scene like it’s his job (which, you know, it is because Elyes Gabel is an actor). It’s another step in his emotional journey, even though Walter assures Paige acting is not emotions, just practice. Oh, Walter.
But the moment of the week happens when Happy stops Toby and tells him that even though he didn’t get to re-create college the way he’d hoped, she could at least give him his dance. For a moment, she gets to be normal and tells him that she’s “letting down her shield.” When you’re done being a total Paige, wipe your tears away and listen to that wonderful song they danced to.
Walter and Paige come back and find Ray looking at Walter’s project. He was trying to prove Ray’s partner’s oxygen tank was defective and that it wasn’t his fault. Ray looks defeated, but as he turns away, a trail of bubbles form, proving that Ray wasn’t at fault, after all. Ray says, “I never thought I’d have another friend like Danny,” and hugs Walter, who gives in and hugs Ray back. Ray decides it’s his time to leave the old garage but not before telling Paige, “You know how he feels about you. You need to go to him; he’s not able to do it on his own.”
Paige tells Walter that she knows there are things that matter to him and that a time capsule is a good place to put reminders of those things. After Paige leaves the room, Walter picks up the picture of Megan and him that Sly tried to give him at the beginning of the episode, puts it in the time capsule, and walks away.
After all of that, it appears that college campuses aren’t so bad for geniuses, after all, or maybe, just maybe, the most practical genius of them all is starting to truly open up and find the emotions buried deep within his heart.
