Scorpion - Cuba Libre

After Cabe (Robert Patrick) is contacted by a woman (Izabella Miko) from his past Scorpion heads to Cuba to find a Serbian war criminal (Dimiter D. Marinov) who has evaded justice for two decades. Needing both a blood sample to prove the man's identity and his ledger with the false identities of 23 other war criminals, while being limited by the technology of their surroundings and no back-up from the U.S. Government, the team has a narrow window to snatch their target, prove his identity, steal the ledger from a bank vault, and get out of the country. It also doesn't help that before his capture the war criminal framed the team for an a car bombing that makes the group public enemy number one.

To often the show has fallen back on Walter making the big insight to save the day. "Cuba Libre" is an episode that allows each member of the team to make substantial contributions by bringing something to the party such as Happy's (Jadyn Wong) heist skills, Toby's (Eddie Kaye Thomas), and Sylvester's (Ari Stidham) encyclopedic knowledge of the area put to good use on more than one occassion helping the group get out of a jam and make their plane ride home. Here's hoping this is a trend we will see more over of the show's Second Season.
