In this episode, after top secret mission involving Homeland Agent Cabe Gallo (Robert Patrick), Happy Quinn (Jadyn Wong) and Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) on a highly classified submarine in international waters goes south, the rest of the team, including Happy’s father, Patrick Quinn (Jamie McShane) raced against time to save them and also the other sailors who had gotten trapped in the sunken submarine. Meanwhile, while trying to find a way to rescue the others from within the submarine, Walter and Happy discovered that due to their missions as team Scorpion, it turned out that they had changed drastically from what they were before. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began at the Scorpion garage, where Homeland Agent Cabe Gallo (Robert Patrick) was teaching Toby Curtis (Eddie Kaye Thomas), who was annoyed at the fact that Happy Quinn (Jadyn Wong) had been seeing a particular guy lately, how to punch.

They were then interrupted by their new handler and Homeland Liaison, Deputy Director Katherine Cooper (Peri Gilpin), who told them that only Happy, Cabe and Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel), who, unbeknownst to the rest of the team, had let his new friend Ray Spiewack (Kevin Weisman) stay at the garage, were the only ones who could go with her and learn what the mission was all about. However, Toby managed to guess that they were headed towards a top secret submarine based on context clues and body language.


In Cooper’s van, they were told that they had to connect and hack into a device planted on the Pacific ocean floor, in order to learn who had placed it there, as it was tapping into a highly secure line between the United States Department of Defense and the Chinese government.

On the submarine, after Toby guessed where the submarine was, Ensign Nathan Hall (Travis Van Winkle) insisted that they hand the ear pieces over to him, which he crushed.

Afterwards, they were escorted to a chamber where Happy launched a device that she had made so that Walter could begin hacking into the mainframe. However, he suddenly stopped, and tried to get Nathan to warn the captain that it was a trap, but it was too late as the device they had tapped into exploded, causing the submarine to sink, tipped on one side, and causing them to get locked inside that particular chamber. They later discovered that the other sailors had emergency suits, but couldn’t get out.

Thankfully, as the ear pieces hadn’t totally been destroyed, Toby, upon hearing that something had gone wrong, managed, with the help of Sylvester Dodd (Ari Stidham), to figure out the exact location of the submarine. He then sent Paige Dineen (Katharine McPhee), who was helping Ray get his car from and impound lot, to Cooper to get help, which ended up with her leaving him behind.

Cooper then managed to alert the Coast Guard who found Cabe floating in the water, as he had gotten out, thanks to the improvised emergency suit that Walter and Happy had made.


After giving Toby the list of materials, Happy said that he would help them make an oxygen tank so that they would have enough air until the rescue submarine arrived, Toby got Happy’s father, Patrick Quinn (Jamie McShane) and his materials, along with Cooper, Paige and Sylvester onto the Coast Guard boat.

There, Happy’s father began creating the tank, and told Toby how Happy had stopped talking after he took away a dollhouse that she had, because it was a fire hazard as she had wired it with lights.

Inside chamber, Walter decided to save others by letting some water in to correct the submarine’s position so that they could get out. He told Happy and Nathan to leave, but they insisted on staying, and thankfully, the oxygen tank made it to them. However, a complication below them caused the chamber to fill up with chloride, and Walter agreed with Nathan to start the self- destruct process of the submarine. There, Happy and Walter both admitted that they had changed emotionally due to their adventures as part of team Scorpion, as they had been deemed as robots by Toby.

Then, Walter realized that they could use the garbage chute as an escape pod and ride the explosion wave up, which worked.

Later, Toby showed Happy a dollhouse, and suggested that he would teach her how to wire it. Walter decided that emotions were good and wondered aloud to Paige if they should actually give a relationship with each other a shot.

Paige also agreed to let Ray keep on staying in the garage.
