Scorpion Meets Karate Kid Sneak Peek: Who Is 'The Best Around'... at Chess?

Sweep the pawn! Sweep the pawn!

CBS’ Scorpion takes a (musical) cue from the original Karate Kid this week, as seen in this exclusive sneak peek.

In “Keep it in Check, Mate” (airing Monday at 10/9c), Walter and Sylvester (played by Elyes Gabel and Ari Stidham) must enter an international chess competition held on foreign soil, as part of an undercover op to extricate a U.S. spy before her identity is exposed.

To that end, the geniuses must agitate their longtime rivalry, one which has famously — and literally — been lodged in the walls of Scorpion HQ. Cue a rigorous training montage, as Walter and Sylvester prepare to prove, once and for all, who is “the best around.” Press play above, Daniel-san, to get yourself a 33-year-old earworm.

    This is the greatest motivational song of all time. If you play this while preparing to do something, you will not fail. GUARANTEED!!!!

    It will be tough to top last Monday’s highly entertaining episode. Toby was such a hoot I smile just thinking about it. Love this show and MacGyver. Go CBS!

    Ha, this looks like a fun episode. I know this show is silly but it’s so mindlessly enjoyable.

    If you look at Elyes Gabel at a certain angle, he kind of resembles Ralph Macchio. Come to think of it, I would mind seeing Macchio (or Martin Kove, for that matter) in a guest spot on “Scorpion…”

      I don’t see it myself, but OK. To me everything about EG says arab and everything about RM says Southern European [Italian/Greek etc.]. I don’t know who Martin Kove is but will google him.
