Megan’s story takes center stage in tonight’s episode, titled “Arrivals and Departures,” and her fight with MS will bring to light Walter’s self-inflicted guilt over his sister’s situation.

“This is a very special episode of Scorpion. This is one where we really do see these guys confront something they’ve never dealt with before and it’s not just the case,” executive producer Nicholas Wootton tells ETonline, adding that the team is on a rollercoaster “emotionally.”
