rick and morty made some big reveals about the show’s story after the huge cliffhanger at the end of the fifth season, but season 6 is dangerously close to going too far as the show could have ruined Morty by stunting his entire growth until ‘now ! One of the most compelling threads leading into the sixth season was the fact that Morty began to push Rick away the more he began to become his own. But the series might have stalled had that will to push back been reset forever.
Season 6 is only two episodes long as of this writing, but it’s already been a tough few weeks for Morty. Not only did the first reveal to him that his real grandfather is actually the Rick who killed the original Rick C-137 Diane and Beth (and thus started him on this chaotic journey), but the second episode fractured him. mind through a billion different NPCs. characters in Roy: A Life Well Lived Game. But at the end of the episode, a part of him notably stayed behind and shared a pretty noticeable change in his behavior afterwards.
In Season 6 Episode 2, “Rick: A Mort Well Lived”, a Morty NPC named Marta stood out to the rest of the world as one who could support others and have such influence as when she challenged Rick’s plan to round up all the Mortys to leave the game (which Marta denied only because she realized how little Rick appreciates this provocative, independent part of Morty’s personality). It had come to such a point that Rick came to respect that little part of Morty and allowed Marta to stay in the game and live out the rest of her virtual life.
But the main question from now on is whether or not Marta is the defiant part of Morty that has grown over the seasons. When Morty returns to reality, he immediately agrees with Rick and everything he says stating that Rick “knows best” and trusts him “implicitly”. Summer asks if Morty is okay or not after all this, and Rick thinks back to the part of Morty he left in the game.
If it’s rick and mortyThe way of resetting Morty to the wiser, more accepting version of the character that we’ve seen in previous seasons, it really hurts the development they’ve had as a duo thus far. The two have matured in their partnership whether Rick admits (or likes) it or not, but that might not matter anymore if Marta was the developed part of her character now left behind.
It’s something that could play out in future episodes of the show to make Morty a full-fledged person, but we’ll see what (if anything) that might lead to as Season 6 continues. But do you think Morty changed significantly after the episode? Will it ultimately matter? Let us know all your thoughts on this in the comments!
