Katharine McPhee and Elyes Gabel kiss in the Scorpion Season 1 finaleWhen we last saw the “Scorpion” gang, Walter (Elyes Gabel) was dangling on the side of a cliff after his car crashed through a guardrail. Spoiler alert — he lives. You never really thought the protagonist of a popular freshman show was going to be killed off, did you?

Walter’s rescue is extremely dramatic, alllllmost leading to him telling Paige (Katharine McPhee) how he feels about her because he thinks he’s going to die. However, Cabe (Robert Patrick) swoops down on a crane to save Walter and the big romantic declaration will have to wait for Season 2.

Or will it?

When Walter is snoozing in the hospital, recovering from his ordeal, Paige plants a kiss on him and tells him how much she cares about him. It was a nice moment and hopefully forecasts some Waige coupling next season.

Obviously, Paige has decided to stay in Los Angeles, which is good news for Ralph (Riley B. Smith) because being on the Scorpion team seems to have been really great for the young genius.

Fans were ecstatic about the Waige action and actually not too disappointed about no “love” mention — because ya gotta save something for Season 2, right?
