"Blood doesn't make family, love makes family."
—Sylvester

Sylvester Dodd, nicknamed Sly, is the son of Kenneth Dodd, the widower of Megan O'Brien-Dodd, and a member of Team Scorpion. He is a mathematical prodigy and a grandmaster of chess, though he suffers from a severe case of OCD. He is also a word class ornithologist.

BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

His parents were frustrated with him as he was a disappointment to them, so at the age of 14 he hacked a bank and stole $2,500 and ran away. He would not talk to them for ten years. Eventually he ended up alone, broke and scared, "contemplating bad things", until the bank's forensic analyst tracked him down. Walter never reported him to the bank.

Once, his father gave him weights as a gift, as his father wanted him to be into sports.

Season OneEdit

PilotEdit

Sylvester is working on an elaborate math problem and the rent, discovering electricity wasn't paid for this month and their "Linwood Payment" from a previous job goes missing. Toby arrives in a rush, hushing everyone as he enters the office, explaining he gambled all their "Linwood Payment" and tripled the amount, but the thugs he cheated the money for weren't so happy about that. The thugs were trying to break in until Homeland Security show up and scared them off. Cabe Gallo, who was following Walter, now asks the team for help.

After a few minutes of arguing whether to help Agent Gallo, the team comes to an agreement to help him with saving lives of people trapped on 56 planes that cannot land due to lack of communication between the planes and the ground. The team then goes to the diner that Walter had previously done a job for. They there meet the young boy's mother, Paige Dineen. Scorpion begins their work of saving lives, having Paige translate the world for them as they go about it.

Eventually, they are able to get the corrupted software back online, and save the planes. After completing their job, Scorpion begins consulting with the government under the supervision of Agent Gallo. They also enlist the help of Paige permanently, having Paige translate the world for them while they translate her genius son, Ralph for her.

Single Point of FailureEdit

Agent Gallo introduces the gang to a desperate Governor of California. The Governor’s teenage daughter is near death with a virus she just contracted. The Governor shows Scorpion his daughter’s laptop, where she received an ominous e-mail message: "It’s your fault she’s sick.” Walter says it’s bio-hacking.

Someone sent the message and the virus specifically for the Governor’s daughter – no one else in the family was infected. The Governor’s daughter has only 24 hours to live and that gives the Scorpion crew less than 24 hours to find who sent this computer virus, reverse its affects and save the girl’s life. They track down the perpetrator to an Internet company. Seems one of their employees needed some extra cash, so he picked up a sketchy job on Craigslist. The unwitting perp sent out 4 emails, with 4 unique viruses and the same damning message.

All 4 victims are children and they’re all children of people who worked at the same pharmaceutical company. The Governor worked there before getting into politics. While he was there, they developed a drug for SMA, Spinal Musculature Atrophy. But before they cured the disease, they stopped producing the drug. Asthma was a much more widespread and therefore profitable venture, so the company shifted gears. Unfortunately, this left a lot of people angry (and potentially murderous). Scorpion orchestrates a company break-in, sending Sylvester as the inside man, since he has a photographic memory.

Sylvester goes in, visually reads the 30 pages of potential culprits and gets out of the pharmaceutical company before he’s shot to death. Gallo eventually figures out the truth – their perpetrator is a father who lost a child, so he’s hurting others the way he was hurt. It’s a biology professor – with the ability to create deadly viruses. Walter realizes that CDC can make an antidote to the virus if the learn the virus’ makeup, so they break into the professor’s office and hunt down his files.

The team rushes to a local mall, where the Governor and the Professor are set to meet. The governor thinks he’s getting the antidote for his daughter but the team knows the Professor is planning to kill the Governor. Despite a mad rush to stop the Professor, he’s able to spray the virus into the air, aiming directly for the Governor.

But Walter thinks quickly, setting a small fire which sets off the mall’s sprinkler system, killing the virus in the air. The Governor is safe. Their mission completed, Scorpion ends up joining Paige and her son, Ralph, for a cookout and celebration on the roof.

A CycloneEdit

Scorpion’s latest mission is everyone’s worst nightmare – the Internet is down. Not in their house but in all of Los Angeles. Without Internet, the whole city shuts down, from banking transactions, to emergency services, to traffic lights. It seems someone is determined to hold LA captive and freeze out all its essential operations. Agent Keeler (Glenn Plummer) meets with Scorpion, asking for their help.

When a building housing old-servers is bombed to bits, the Scorpion crew figures out that their adversary must have a communique he doesn't want revealed.Through some clever sleuthing, they discover that Keeler, the agent who hired them, is actually behind the city’s take-down. Before the gang can think twice, a bomb blast at a local law firm diverts their attention, forcing them to go on site to find the cause. With an astute ear, Happy discovers there’s more damage to come; she tracks down a new, literal ticking time bomb in the building. They have 5 minutes to disable the bomb and get everyone out – or it’s a murder scene on their hands (including their own).

Walter stays with Happy to disable the bomb, while Paige helps the rest of the crew evacuate, leading them to safety. After a blast that is serious but not catastrophic, Walter emerges out of the ashes, ready to return to his crew and face another mission.
