scorpion-talismans-1

Methinks he doth protest too much. In an episode where Walter (Elyes Gabel) scoffs at the need for people to keep souvenirs and remembrances of their loved ones, he and his team head into Bosnia with a covert squad to recover stealth tech (for the U.S. Government) and the remains of the plane’s pilot (for the soldier’s widow and child). The B-story introduces Camille Guaty as Walter’s sister Megan who remains at Scorpion headquarters with Sylvester (Ari Stidham) while the other members of the team risk their lives overseas. The B-story offers a bit more insight into the team for audiences while also demonstrating to both Megan and the show’s viewers that Walter is far more nostalgic than he has ever let on.

An investigation into the murder of a government investigator leads Esposito (Jon Huertas) to be taken hostage in a subway car with more than a dozen other hostages by a cyber activist whose motives, including plans to target a group of one-percenters and demand the release of his incarcerated girlfriend, seem more about buying time than getting the demands actually met. Through a hidden surveillance camera the 12th Precinct can observe events on the subway car while Castle (Nathan Fillion), Beckett (Stana Katic), and Ryan (Seamus Dever) race to find answers as to what is really going on.

elementary-bella

Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) accepts a case to look into the theft of an artificial intelligence known as “Bella.” More interested in the software itself, and disproving it as legitimate A.I., Holmes passes off most of the legwork involving the theft and eventual murder of one of Bella’s creators to Kitty (Ophelia Lovibond) and Watson (Lucy Liu) while he becomes obsessed with testing the machine.

While Ward (Brett Dalton) uses his new freedom to reconnect with his brother (Tim DeKay), and Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) attempts to interrogate a few interesting facts from their new HYDRA prisoner (Simon Kassianides), Coulson (Clark Gregg) rallies the troops in the race to find the mysterious city before their enemies. Overly-goofy in spots and brutal in others, tonally “The Things We Bury” is a bit of a mess, however it does offer a little more information about the season arc, its main villain, and even gives us an entire subplot starring Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell).

While introducing another of the Scarlet Speedster’s lesser villains and providing Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) the opportunity to stand-up to his old childhood bully for the first time, “The Flash is Born” is more memorable for the time spent on the First Season’s ongoing storylines. As the name of the episode suggests, “The Flash is Born” finally gets rid of “The Streak” and properly dubs the Fastest Man Alive with public moniker of the Flash.
