Even when the team traveled, but one or two members stayed in LA, those members were still in constant communication with the group and played integral roles in the resolution of the case.

If the show had continued, I would love to see how they dealt with work-life balance as the couples got more involved with family life. Toby and Happy were about to adopt and would have to arrange their lives around the needs of a child. Assuming Walter and Paige got back together and eventually made that permanent, even if they didn't have more children, how would they deal with the situation of being together pretty much 24/7 - or with the issue of bringing work problems home. Both can often be real problems for couples that work together.

Yeah in fic I've been tackling that by sort of ignoring it so it's definitely tricky

Considering that communication has been a big problem for Waige, they would really have to work on fixing that before adding the stress of 24/7 contact to it.

Yeah, that was the trap that they kept falling into. They ALWAYS were fine when they just talked to each other. And yet they continually would stop.

I'm actually a little surprised that Toby never offered to do couples counseling with them. He did some informal counseling with each of them individually, but not as a couple.

No offense to Toby but I would absolutely refuse

I agree with you there. I would not want someone I work with counseling me with my partner

Agree. Plus, as much as I love Toby, he's very cocky and obnoxious when it comes to his behaviorist skills, and that's not the kind of therapist I'd want.

It's probably good that Toby found the job that he did. He doesn't have enough sympathy or empathy to really be a good therapist. With Scorpion, he pretty much does all his analysis from a distance.

Yeah the "I'm always right and I know it" thing doesn't really work in a setting where you need to have compassion be one of your strengths. Not to say he isn't compassionate, it just doesn't come out as much in his professional life.

That could actually be part of his attraction for Happy. She's not looking for compassion or sympathy and probably scorns anything like that. She appreciates a more gritty "deal with it" approach to life.

And it's a fun and rewarding challenge when he does get her to have those softer moments.

Toby may be one of the few people who know that Happy has a softer side
