Linda Hunt’s Hetty to Crossover to Scorpion

CBS will be staging a crossover of sorts when NCIS: Los Angeles’ Linda Hunt guest-stars on Scorpion, EW has learned exclusively.

Scorpion stars Elyes Gabel as Walter O’Brien, an eccentric genius who assembles a team of super-geniuses to combat the complex threats of the modern age. His team will enlist Hunt’s NCIS: LA character Hetty when a lead on an upcoming case tracking down a priceless painting takes them to a Halloween party and they need her expertise to go undercover and infiltrate the event.

Naturally, the crossover episode of Scorpion is slated to air in late October around the spooky holiday.

CBS’ new drama Scorpion premieres Sept. 22 at 9 p.m., while NCIS: LA returns Sept. 29 at 10 p.m.
