We were able to see the long-awaited return and learn about Rick’s “stupid cryingbaby backstory”. Also, we learned more about the Central Finite Curve. This interdimensional wall blocks all realities in which Rick isn’t the smartest person on the planet. Evil Morty refers to it as “an infinite crib built around a infinite f**king child”.
It turns out that the Citadel was designed to produce an inexhaustible supply of Mortys who would assist their Ricks in creating this messed up reality barrier.
Evil Morty, sick of the constant cycle of abuse, decided to destroy Curve (in stunningly cinematic fashion, perhaps?). This allowed Rick to escape to other parts of the multiverse.
What does this mean for the show’s future? The possibilities are endless now that Rick’s protective bubble has burst. The mad scientist is no longer the most intelligent man on the planet. Could he now face more difficult enemies?
This idea raises some questions. The Curve was supposed to protect Rick from being surrounded by anyone smarter than him, but we have still seen him meet a few worthy adversaries like Mr Nimbus, the horny aquatic man, and, most curiously, , the President of the United States.
It is also certain that Rick was defeated by Evil Morty at the final, which means he was not the smartest Curve man.
Finale ended with Evil Morty finding a new world and jumping into a yellow portal. This was a departure from Rick’s usual green color to indicate his independence. Although it’s unclear if we will ever see him again (a change from the usual green to signify his independence from Rick), it’s certain that we won’t.
In any event, Rick will have to face the reality he has been hiding since the beginning of this interdimensional shakeup.
Over the course of his lifetime, he’s done some very dark and strange things. Let’s just imagine what could exist in the universes that he didn’t want us to see. What if there was an extra Plumbus? The Council of Birdpersons He might even meet the Rick who accidentally killed his wife, and the original version his daughter. This episode would be the most emotional we have seen from Rick.
We are leaning towards a serialized approach to the series, most notably. One of the main complaints about season five was This naturally comes with a more episodic show format. They may be able to finally move the show in a meaningful direction by adding a little continuity.
Fans have long pleaded for more storylines from the show. While the creators shouldn’t be forced to listen to their fans, it is hard to deny the fact that the finale’s canonical revelations were the highlight of the season.
Scott Marder, the showrunner for Adult Swim, has indicated that future episodes will feature serialized storytelling.
He spoke to and said that “we ourselves, even before Season 5 aired, were like, “Oh, it would have been fun to give things more continuity, make them feel less standalone.” This feels like the big note I feel I’m getting on Season 5 is, “Fun episodes”, but we want to feel like “A equals B” and that they all relate and don’t ignore the past.
