If you have a need for speed, look no further than Scorpion's season 3 premiere.

The hurricane will return to CBS at six times the speed of sound, diving into the fall run with an emotionally laden two-hour episode.

Picking up just moments after the events of the finale, "Civil War" and "More civil War" will see Walter continue his race to Lake Tahoe. The genius is hell-bent on confessing his feeling to Paige, but a mix of personal and professional issues will quickly throw his plan into disarray.

"It goes beyond what his worst expectations could've been," executive producer Nick Wootton told Entertainment Weekly.

Ouch. Poor Walter finally tapped into his emotions, and it sounds like he's about to learn his intellectual shell was a prime defense. He won't have long to dwell on the issue, however, before the episode's title becomes a double-edged sword (judge us if you must, but we're suckers for Scorpion's punny titles).

"There's a hack of this military electronic infrastructure, so there are [American] military facilities attacking the United States against their will from outside. So there's civil war," Wootton told EnStars at San Diego Comic-Con. "Internally, because of Walter going up to Lake Tahoe and possibly getting caught doing it, there is a civil war amongst the team as well. It plays on both levels."

To save America from its own defenses, Team Scorpion will hop on the world's fastest aircraft before employing the services of the west coast's largest tin foil ball.

"In the first two episodes, we're going to Bulgaria in a Valkyrie. I don't know if I'm actually allowed to all it a Valkyrie, but it's a Mach 6 plane, which is phenomenally cool," Wooton teased. "We're doing that, which is modern warfare, and we're using a catapult as well...we're firing Los Angeles' largest aluminum ball at a battleship."

Did that pique your interest? Check out the full episode summary below!

"Team Scorpion must put aside their personal and romantic predicaments when anonymous hackers with unknown motives take control of U.S. military aircraft and warships and point weapons at American cities," CBS teased. "Just as Team Scorpion makes headway against the hackers controlling U.S. naval destroyers, they learn that a U.S. nuclear submarine also has been hacked and has a missile about to launch."

Scorpion will return to CBS on Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. ET!
