Scorpion Season 3 Episode 6 Review: Bat Poop Crazy

at .  Updated at . Comments

You know when the episode is titled, "Bat Poop Crazy," that you are in for a fun ride.

On Scorpion Season 3 Episode 6, the team faced their toughest adversaries. For Walter and Happy, it was their INS agent. For Sly, it was bats.

Which one was scarier? Well, Walter and Happy didn't get rabies from the INS agent, so Sly might win this round.

Halloween Past - Scorpion

The case of the week is not anything special. It didn't really captivate your attention, except for the scenes were Sly was battling bats. Those were downright hilarious, and his shrieking was just perfection.

Honestly though, the case was a little boring. There wasn't any real suspenseful moments. There weren't any tense or action packed scenes. Sure, there were some cave ins, but those didn't really put you on the edge of your seat.

I'm honestly still a little fuzzy on why exactly they were needed to save the bats, but whatever, the bats are safe and sound. Huzzah!

I am not spelunking to save a disease-ridden, flying rodent.


What did you think of the case? Did you enjoy the spelunking adventure? I don't think I could handle crawling through those tight spaces.

It's interesting that while Walter said faking emotion is hard, he excelled at portraying emotion when he was telling Paige's Halloween story with a slight twist. Whenever it comes to Paige, it is easier for Walter to be emotional and open up.

I'm not saying he's perfect at it, but if he wouldn't have spoken to Paige about her Halloween memories, Walter probably wouldn't have had anything to say to the INS agent. It would have been him and Happy stammering on, trying to come up with a story to save their asses.

When it comes to Paige, Walter doesn't have to fake his emotions. Even though, like Toby said, Walter is playing with fire, Walter manipulating Paige's Halloween tale to make her feel better was a sweet moment.

Speaking of Paige, Toby brought up an interesting point – no one knows her.

The genius side of Team Scorpion knows everything about each other because they have been friends – they have been a team – for years. They know a good bit about everyone's upbringing and family. Paige, on the other hand, is a mystery.

Hopefully this means that we will be exploring more of Paige's background this season. It would be really interesting to meet Paige's dad and to learn about his relationship with Paige and Ralph. It could also be amusing to see Team Scorpion meet Paige's family.

Happy: You are injecting the pumpkins with explosive chemicals?
Ralph: So I can carve four pumpkins at once.
Happy: No exploding pumpkins!

Happy and Ralph one on one scenes at last!!

It was definitely worth the wait. First off, Ralph spending time with any member of the team is always a blast, especially when Paige isn't there. 

Happy babysitting Ralph was a great way to see how Happy is handling the fact that she will be a mother soon. The only thing that could have made this better was if we saw Happy actually taking care of Ralph when he was sick. 

Happy did a pretty decent job. The only major slip up was the exploding pumpkin scenario. It's amazing she cleaned everything up so quickly. Hopefully this isn't the last time Happy gets to babysit Ralph. Can you imagine if she and Toby kept Ralph one weekend? Hijinks would ensue.

Don't mind me. I'm just a friendly giant bat with glasses.

Scorpion Season 3 Episode 6 Quotes

Faking emotion is nearly impossible.


Today's mission? It's perilous. The adversary is our worst yet. A nuclear threat, an evil dictator? We wish. It's a pencil pushing bureaucrat, so guys take this seriously.
