‘Scorpion’ Recap: ‘Fish Fillet’
“Scorpion” Season 2 Episode 3 “Fish Fillet” aired last Monday, October 5, 2015 at 9:00 PM on CBS. In this episode, Sylvester Dodd (Ari Stidham) went undercover in a federal prison in order to get his hands on the code book manual used by a Japanese gang in less than a day in order to figure out which judges they were going to kill next. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode began in Harrison Federal Prison, where Warden Jadlow (Wade Williams) discovered that his confidential informant within the prison and within a Japanese organization, had been killed.
Meanwhile, Sylvester Dodd (Ari Stidham) tried to tell Megan O’Brien (Camille Guaty) how he felt about her, but wasn’t able to as he was summoned to the garage where Toby Curtis (Eddie Kaye Thomas) overheard Happy Quinn (Jadyn Wong) promising someone over the phone that she would meet that person at a club later that night.
After discovering from Ralph Dineen (Riley B. Smith) that a bully was forcing him to do his homework for him, the entire team tried giving him suggestions, but Ralph asked for one more day before they, and his mother, Paige Dineen (Katharine McPhee) intervened.
Homeland Director Adriana Molina (Alana De La Garza) then entered with Warden Jadlow, and told the team that three more judges’ lives were in danger from a ruthless Japanese organization being run by an old Japanese gang leader suffering from kidney disease from within Harrison Federal Prison, and that the only way they could decode the slips of paper with the encoded names of the judges was to get Sylvester inside, so that he could find the code manual, memorize it, and decode the names in ninety minutes.
Inside, Sylvester headed out to the library, where they realized that acetates from various medical books had been torn out, as it had been used for the manual.

Sylvester then managed to get himself into the infirmary, where they realized the manual would be hidden, as the gang leader spent most of his time there due to dialysis, by provoking one of the biggest and most ruthless inmates in the prison, a man named Ten-Ton (Lester Spreight). However, in the process, Sylvester’s transceiver implant got knocked out.
Inside the infirmary, he managed to find and memorize the code written on the acetates, but, unfortunately, the legend, which was key to deciphering everything, wasn’t there.
However, he was suddenly interrupted by the arrival of a comatose Warden Jadlow, leaving him truly alone.
To make matters worse, Ten-Ton promised to kill him that night.
As they were running on a tight schedule, and because Molina refused to help them, they decided to break Sylvester out of prison by smuggling him out of the morgue, which was connected to the biohazard access tunnels that required Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) to ask his newfound friend, Ray Spiewack (Kevin Weisman) to help smuggle several pills to Sylvester that would make him seem dead.
They then managed to break him out, but before that, Sylvester, in a rare feat of courage, before leaving, decided to go after the legend which was hidden inside the wheelchair as he had collapsed earlier before getting to it.
He then managed to decode the names, and the judges lives were saved. However, Agent Cabe Gallo (Robert Patrick) informed Molina that he no longer trust her as she didn’t try to help them.
Later, Sylvester admitted his feelings to Megan, who told him that she felt the same way about him.
Back at the garage, the team discovered that Ralph had applied to various colleges like MIT and CalTech in order to become a celebrity at school so that no one would pick on him, but elected to stay in elementary school as he wanted to learn how to interact with people.
Following her son’s line of thought, Paige encouraged Walter to hang out with Ray, which he did later on.
