The series ‘Rick and Morty’ was first premiered in 2013 and has been loved by many since. In a recent episode, things took a turn when Rick addressed Morty as ‘Rick Sanchez’. Fans have been confused ever since. So, let us try to understand what happened. Expanding to a limitless multiverse, Rick and Morty was seen in the Anime called ‘Samurai and Shogun’.
This anime was also promoted by Adult Swim which led the audience to ask about the future storyline of the show. The second episode of the Anime started showing ’Rick and Morty’ in a different way. Fans even started coming up with different theories.
What actually happened in Rick and Morty vs. Genocider?
The special ‘Rick and Morty versus Genocider’ was packed with some outrageous moments. It shows Rick being hunted by the Citadel of Ricks and Evil Morty. They are called a group of genociders and they change the memories of people destroying life. Morty travels to Japan in order to find Rick but sees people disappearing. After finding Rick, he explains the concept of genocider.
Before blasting off to become ‘Super Rick’, he addresses Morty as Rick Sanchez. Rick dies mid-battle and during the farewell, Rick’s reflection overlaps Morty’s face. This seemed to indicate that Rick and Morty are actually the same person. The episode concluded with Jerry leaving a phone message to Rick and telling him Morty has born. Rick ends up drinking the potion that Morty gave him earlier. The potion ends up giving Morty all of Rick’s memory which shows Morty will start living as Rick throughout his lifetime.
No scenes confirm any of the theories that the fans have come up with. The show is not a fan of time travel but all this timeline snooping does create mysteries, making it all the more exciting. The above theory might also explain why Rick was resistant to the picture where he is seen holding baby Morty. More episodes will be coming in soon. We will wait for the mystery behind the flask and its content. Let us know in the comments section, what are your theories about the episode and stay tuned for more such updates.
