"Faux Money Maux Problems" - When Team SCORPION is duped into producing counterfeit money for a foreign entity intent on ruining the U.S. economy, Paige must rely on her mother Veronica's (Lea Thompson) skills as a grifter to save them, on a rebroadcast of SCORPION, Monday, July 3 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 1/16/17.)SCORPION, inspired by a true story, is a high-octane drama about eccentric GENIUS Walter O'Brien and his team of brilliant misfits, who are the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age. As Homeland Security's new think tank, O'Brien's Team SCORPION includes Toby Curtis an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn, a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd, a statistics guru. Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo, who shares a harrowing history with O'Brien.

At last, these quirky masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation's crises while also helping one another learn how to fit in.
