I'm really upset about potentially widowed sloths in the Amazon. Sloths deserve to hang upside down with their mates.
On Scorpion Season 3 Episode 19, Team Scorpion heads to the Amazon to befriend a monkey and stun spiders.
Okay, there was a virus or something that needed an antidote, but who cares about that when there is a monkey!
This case is just pure fun. It's exactly the kind of case that Scorpion excels at, nothing too serious or "OH MY GOD, SO AND SO IS GOING TO DIE!"
It was what the world needed on this dreary Monday night after the evil Daylight Saving's Time.
The obvious lesson of the case is to read up on where you are going because somehow the tour book (or whatever Cabe was reading) will have crucial intel that will save the day.
The first reference to the sloths was cute, but then it was a little strange and too coincidental that Cabe's research had exactly the information that was needed.
It would have been better if Sly just told the team seeing how Sly has a computer with WiFi in front of him. Did this bother anyone else?
Thiago was not all that entertaining. It was hard to connect with him and like him before he got sick.
Then there's this annoyance that the random character of the week was going to (potentially) die. There wasn't anything that made me care about his wellbeing.
Thiago felt like a nuisance more than an asset. Dr. Silva might have been more entertaining.
Before switching gears, let's just discuss the gem that was the monkey.
Yes, the monkey would not have been happy in the garage, but the thought of Toby having to say goodbye to his furry friend breaks my heart.
We witnessed them go from enemies to friends. Speaking of animal friends, where is Ferret Bueller? He needs to make an appearance soon.
Time to discuss Toby's other significant relationship: Quintis.
The shrink coming back was an unexpected delight, but I'm a little sad that there wasn't any harmonizing.
Toby and Walter need to go in for a follow-up session because we need that kind of happiness in our lives.
The clicker was a GIFT.
The therapy session brought to light that Toby can get annoying when he constantly praises Happy's existence.
As much as I love happy Quintis, the two of them playfully bickering is fun to watch. It's a reminder of the early days before they became a couple.
The clicker brought back all the fun aspects of Quintis. There's never a fear that the fights are serious. It's just normal, every day Quintis bickering, and it was nice to see that again.
Out of curiosity: do you think if Happy had the clicker that there would be more or less clicks?
Not only did Walter make some emotional progress, but Paige had a light bulb moment!
Hopefully, we get to see Walter and Cabe bonding and cheering each other up.
Their relationship is such a huge part of the show, and it would be great to see more of them hanging out socially.
Walter: He's hurting inside, and I think I can help.
Toby: That was empathy. Walter identified emotional pain in someone else and demonstrated empathy.
Paige: You can't empathize if you haven't been through a similar situation yourself. Walter wasn't just being jealous or petty about Tim, was he?
Toby: He wasn't. I know you didn't mean to, but you must have really broken his heart. Now he knows what that feels like, and he is applying that data to someone else. Ralph may not be changing, but Walter certainly is.
Waige has been at a standstill recently, and it's really up to Paige to take things to the next step if that is what she wants.
Walter already made his move, but Paige chose Tim.
Walter was rejected and heartbroken, and so it doesn't seem likely that Walter would be the one to initiate things after it backfired on him.
Paige has to initiate things.
Now that she has realized what her relationship with Tim did to Walter, there's a chance that Paige will also step back and think about how Walter really feels about her.
If he has been heartbroken, then, you know, he was in love with her.
I'm excited to see Paige re-evaluate her relationship with Walter and her feelings towards him as well.
Part of me wants this to unfold slowly just so we can watch Paige really process everything and start to maybe change how she interacts with him (all for the flirting).
But then, obviously, part of me wants them to get together now. What are your Waige hopes?
