Specifically, the video below offers you up a few simple words that will make your heart melt: “I’m in love with you.” It can’t be much of a surprise for Paige to hear these words, given that she already knew Walter said them earlier this season in the most vulnerable of moments. The only thing that is really all that different about this moment here is that it comes at a time in which he’s not in the midst of the same sort of distress that he was. This is a man more keenly aware of where he is and what he’s saying.
Also, this moment is him taking a little bit of the power back. When he last made the confession, he did so under a certain degree of duress and in a different mental state. Now, it’s not some secret to be kept from him; it’s out there in the open, and there’s no going back from it.
How will Paige respond? Well, she first has to come to terms with Walter firing her, and understanding where some of that came from. That moment represented Walter slipping back to his most primitive, vulnerable self.
Oh, and there’s also a Scorpion wedding
It may be a little bit of a surprise for some people out there to see Happy and Toby tying the knot before the season finale, but there is a specific reason for the timing here. The final two episodes are going to start off with a honeymoon, but then go completely off the rails in a way that you will only get from this show.
With that said, it’s also possible the wedding will go completely off the rails. A new case threatens to keep it from happening, but we feel like it probably will since this is Scorpion, and the last thing we think the producers want to do is give you an unsatisfying ending after this many years of buildup. (Granted, two seasons is relatively light when it comes to the procedural-couples-getting-hitched model over the years.)
What do you think should happen with Walter and Paige before the end of Scorpion season 3? Let us know in the comments!
