Rick and Morty Season 4: EVIL MORTY Rising? | Ricksplained

  • Published: 03 December 2019
  • Is Rick and Morty Season 4 hinting that Morty is transitioning into a more cynical, Rick-like, EVIL Morty?
    In this episode of #Ricksplained, Erik Voss and Tommy Bechtold welcome to the show special guest ECHO KELLUM, recurring voice actor on Rick and Morty and Curtis Holt from Arrow on the CW. The panel discusses the behind the scenes process that makes Rick and Morty unique among other animated series, and some clues you may have overlooked throughout these past three Season 4 episodes that might point to Morty's moral decline.

            It's not true that they have always avoided time travel. In the pilot episode where Rick went to the advanced dimension when he came back he said he spent a lot of time with a lot of fun with a lot of young ladies but he was only gone for a few seconds. The only explanation is that he time traveled back. I've always assumed that when writing the pilot they hadn't made the decision to have the portal gun not be a time travel device yet.

              Meh, he's still lawful neutral. He has his one goal and is still gunning for it

                They spent forever just laughing at Mr. Goldenfold's screams and barely mentioned the episode. What happened to the in depth analysis and pointing out hidden jokes that I subscribed for?? Was this episode too disturbing to analyze?

                    I think that Morty is actually a clone of Evil Morty and Rick uses the mind blowers to prevent Clone Morty from turning into his original Morty. I doubt Rick would pretend to be the grandfather of a Morty from another universe; a clone is the closest thing to the original. Plus as we are seeing this season, Morty is no longer following his wishes and growing resentful; possibly exactly like Evil Morty.

                        1 I think Rick is connecting more with his real emotional side on his "completely replaceable companions" and 2 I think morty is starting to understand more and more that hes insignificant. 3 I think that neither of them are super capable of dealing with or fully understanding what these shifts mean 4 I dont think we understand what they're going to lead to either until it happens

                          Evil morty has already replaced our morty he is waiting now.

                            Evil Morty is Rick's first Morty. Rick trained him to be smart enough to kill Rick because Rick can't kill himself, but Morty went rogue and left Rick alive to suffer. Current Morty is Morty 2.0, starting with a dumber more caring Morty in the hopes he won't make the same mistakes. Arc closing line, I don't care enough to kill you Rick. Let's go home.

                              I think morty fiddling with the rubix cube is a sign that he’s getting smarter which intern would make him *functionally* useless to Rick iso I think it’s going to be an arc for Rick where he has to choose between the morty he “loves” or a morty that is still stupid and can thus keep him safe and if he doesn’t pick C-137 morty he could flip out

                                  I think the difference between season 1 Morty and Morty now is that he grew a spine. He's smarter from experience, he has gained a little confidence and is kinda desensitized. That makes a difference when it comes to time, I'm definitely not the same person I was a year or two years ago so seeing and doing everything Morty has with his time with Rick would differently have a big impact on morals

                                            Maybe it's coming down to a big Rick vs Morty fight where Rick takes on his Morty and evil Morty ?

                                                    Before I watch the video. I have been thinking that this season is the beginning of the making of evil Morty. Rick has been particularly tough on Morty this season. I think it's the universe where evil Morty was born. Keep this in mind when you watch this season.

                                                        but morty has met evil morty so how can he be evil morty

                                                          Morty loosing everthing he dreams of is turning him into a rick mindstate. The only thing is morty is younger and doesnt know how to deal with it. For example rick has science to deal with it but morty has nothing really to believe in? Far fetched maybe?

                                                                Or maybe, you know... evil morty controlling a robot rick is foreshadowing for morty becoming rick someday as the cycle continues. Which also then would make sense why they say there will be hundreds of seasons.

Yes, he is changing and developing but we already got the variable of an evil Morty in the infinite universes, my theory is that our Morty is getting smarter and sharper to CONFRONT Evil Morty.

Rick realizes that this morty is slowly turning evil and tries to time travel to now in another dimension to avoid the consequences. That is ‘’the big twist’’ that they keep talking about. It’s also why Morty is acting like this. Or he’s just getting smarter.

Then is there a universe where they die to every adventure? So they are guaranteed to survive every adventure?

These will lead to a season finale were rick will give morty the offer to have all his memories of his adventures with rick removed in order for him to just become the good kid that he used to be, the kid rick loved. But sadly it’ll be to late, morty will leave the house or deny ricks offer. Morty will then, in an incredibly dark and depressing twist, take his own life. This will then leave Rick as sad as when his wife died or maybe even sadder. Rick will destroy all his lab equipment, take a seat at the kitchen table (which has been at the start of every single episode of season 4 so far) and will begin to drink and cry his sorrows away. Sorry again if these themes were too dark for you but this is what I believe will happen at the end of Rick and Morty. Feel free to leave comments and tell me what you think

And now this replacement morty that’s we’ve known from the beginning is starting to gain evil tendencies. It’s just exposure to the rickest Rick that makes a morty evil
