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

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.

  • When they flip morty.. i would love it to be close to Star Wars episode 3 parody. Turns out Rick found this Morty and deemed him good. Then when he turns "You were supposed to be the chosen one!... but now your a shit stain and i gotta kill ya"

  • Why would evil morty rise, he already exists in this present time line, not a future one or an unknown one. Or are you saying all morty's are destined to turn into evil morty and why should tht version of morty be the one all morty's are headed toward

  • Theory: All Morty’s are destined to revolt against the ricks. That’s why rick is always so mean to him: either the ricks know the mortys are going to revolt or ricks are just unaware of the revolt (similar to the cloaking rule from season 1) and it’s just ricks being ricks

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • This is the Origen

    larry silverlarry silverMonth ago
  • 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.

    Jesus IbarraJesus IbarraMonth ago
  • 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.

    Angry SantaAngry SantaMonth ago
  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • The most unacceptable theory for me😅. Film theory is better.

  • Morty destroyed his original world in season 1 because of the power of boners. Don’t mistake teenage hormones for budding evil sociopaths or Morty would’ve already gone dark side

    HowdyDuty4HowdyDuty4Month ago
  • 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.

  • Holy Shit My Theory was Right that Episodes of The Season 4 Was Each morty That Died or Missing Becuase Season 4 Has 5 Episodes And The Trailer Said that OG Rick Has 5 Morties

  • Honestly! I don't think Morty will turn evil. 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.

    • Lawful doesn't mean abiding by the laws of others, case in point, Voldemort. They just need to believe that there are many rules that need to be strictly followed (even if the laws are created by themselves).
