Scorpion: Walter Goes Tar Pit Diving. Veronica Ropes Ralph into a Con.

scorpion-this-is-the-pits

Team Scorpion is in for it this time in this week’s episode of Scorpion. A woman, Beth, is slowly sinking in the La Brea tar pits. She swerved her car off the road to avoid hitting a cyclist. That’s why you don’t drive and talk on the phone at the same time, people! The team scrambled to find a way to save her and Walter volunteered to go down into the tar pit. Time to go tar pit diving!

It was a nail-biting scene as usual on Scorpion. Seeing the team risk their lives to save others is thrilling, to say the least. I wasn’t too sure that the makeshift diving suit that Happy made out of diving gear would work, but it did. Maybe they should do a crossover with MacGyver or something. Just a suggestion. Though the part where Walter burned his hand in the scalding, hot, tar was gruesome. This coming from the person who’s watched many episodes of CSI, and it’s two spin-off series.

Beth was saved in the end thanks to Team Scorpion. Though I wonder where she was able to get her hands on that blue tape thing to cover her face? Was there a first-aid kit of some sort on the car? The whole lighting the tar on fire to get Walter unstuck was brilliant. I also loved the touching moment between Beth and her husband, Michael. She took a chance on him and made him a better man. If that’s not true love, I don’t know what is.

Speaking of the genius, Toby caught on to Walter’s plan to win Paige. Walter, on the advice of Veronica, tries to implement things that will trigger happy memories for Paige and thus, transfer those feelings to him. Reminds me of that episode of The Big Bang Theory where Amy Farrah Fowler used Sheldon’s childhood memories to make him fall in love with her. Shame it didn’t quite work out as Walter had hoped. I almost applauded the scene where Walter told Veronica that her methods to help him win Paige are nothing but poppycock. He doesn’t want to con Paige into being with him; he wants to do it the right way. You tell her, Walter!

Ralph also got a taste of Grandma’s “entrepreneurial” skills when the latter helped the young genius with his cookie sales. I all but screamed “Don’t do it, Ralph! You’re smarter than that!” at the screen. Good thing he figured out at the end that the whole thing was a con. Your Mother raised you right, Ralph, I applaud. At least Veronica gave a good chunk of the money made from the cookie sale to Sylvester and his campaign. Maybe Grandma Dineen’s not all bad. I still don’t like her much.

I felt sorry for Tim in this episode. He failed his physical medical exam which means that he can’t continue being a Navy Seal. When he got the phone call from his old commanding officer about a job offer in Jordan, Africa, I thought that he would jump at the chance to take it. Imagine my surprise when he decided to stay with Scorpion. Walter O’Brien, you got your work cut out for you!
