Scorpion - Super Fun Guys

To find a late-era Soviet nuke before it is sold on the black market, Team Scorpion heads to Kazakhstan undercover as a film crew working on "Super Fun Guy The Movie," which of course makes Sylvester (Ari Stidham) deliriously happy except when Megan's (Camille Guaty) surgery is moved up, a fact she doesn't want Walter (Elyes Gabel) to know about, and he is forced to stay behind to lend his support without letting his friends know why. Although they are able to find the nuke before the sale, Walter and his friends are made by one of the mercenaries and find themselves trapped in a foreign country without outside assistance and still needing to stop the sale of the deadly weapon.

The new plan requires the group to dress up as Super Fun Guy extras while sneaking into the warehouse from underground and attempting to covertly render the nuke ineffective by destroying the uranium. Honestly, it turns out to be easier than it sounds, although once again things don't go exactly as planned as Happy (Jadyn Wong) ends up driving the flatbed truck with an armed nuclear missile attached through a movie shoot and out of town. Despite being thousands of miles away, Sylvester manages to help save his friends, even if that means riding on a motorcycle, and still keep his promise to be at Megan's side when she comes out of surgery.

Although only support for his friends, Sylvester makes big strides in the episode facing his own fears, keeping an important secret from those closest to them, and doing whatever he must to save his friends. Kevin Weisman returns to play Ray in yet another episode, helping Sylvester in his time of need, suggesting Walter's friend is likely to stick around for the foreseeable future. And Toby (Eddie Kaye Thomas) makes a realization of his own meaning the change of him getting together with Happy in the near future just got less probable.
