Scorpion is hired by the F.B.I. to install a newly developed audio surveillance system on the only U.S. military base located in Djibouti, Africa so that they can pick up on terrorist chatter. But this is just a ruse in order for Cabe and his Homeland Security trainee, Tim Armstrong (Scott Porter), to run a top secret op across the border in Makuria, gathering intel on a businessman who raids antiquities from Middle Eastern museums and sells them on the black market to fund training, fake visas, and advanced explosives for terrorists. However, it turns into a rescue mission when the team must save Cabe after he is captured behind enemy lines. Also, Sylvester hires a lawyer named Haywood “Jahelpme” Morris (Horatio Sanz) from a TV commercial to help him get past the boilerplate contracts for game show auditions.
