Infinite universes, infinite possibilities...

Good job "Digital Soy", you've found the plot of the main storyline!
*Slow clap*

It makes a hell of a lot of sense, and would be an excellent series finale "shocker".
However, thanks to you, it's fuct on arrival.
Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's attention to the interwebs is epic and well suited.
They'll see your amazing attempt at prediction and write something different..
Bravo!! You spoiled it.
*Poetry snaps*

The idea is that the Morty we see abandoned to those monsters is an alternate version who somehow survived and swore revenge on Rick for leaving him behind.

There's a reason Rick periodically edits Morty's memories...

I'm pretty sure the Story Train episode was Rick and Morty casting any sense of continuity and canon to the wind.

They're going to have to hustle to come up with a storyline where our Morty isn't Evil Morty.  They've laid out a lot of evidence in favor of it, clearly on purpose.  The time travel box, Rick's dislike of time travel.  "When Morty's get cocky things go badly" back at the Citadel of Rick's followed by "When did you get so cocky?" this episode.  Just all of it.  Dumping it as a stunt just to say 'nu-uh, fooled you' isn't really the sort of thing they usually seem to go for.  Most things follow a logical progression in retrospect.  Most of Beth's arc, anything involving Jerry, etc.  Often the worst possible result, but logical.

I think of the episode as their version of the Beatles' "Glass Onion" in that it was their way of throwing off the overly intense fans who closely examine every episode to find hidden messages about the program. To quote the MST3K mantra, "It's just a show ..."

Also, for those of you who aren't ancient like me, here's the Beatles song I was referring to.

Evil Morty has been Jerry all along. He knew exactly what pushing that reset button was going to do. He's his own dad, and that's why Mortys are usually dumb.

You may be on to something, as Rick was farking having none of that and pulled out the Men In Black memory flasher when Jerry looked at the alien cat's mind or whatever it was and found intestinal fortitude, while Cronenberg Planet Jerry is Alpha Male, despite being down to caveman tech.

I don't care.  I just like it when it's funny and occasionally emotional.

I agree it was a pivotal episode, because those always have stupid titles.

This is very much the attitude one should take. There's no overarching plan, there's no meaning to there being an Evil Morty, any more than Snowball's testicles are an important plot point to the overall show.

I just like it because it's funny and interesting. I got no need to figure it out beforehand or even have it all makes sense in some grand scheme where we suddenly realize that _______ from ________ was actually a clue to _______. It's a good show and I look forward to watching it. That's enough really.

Oysterman: I'm pretty sure the Story Train episode was Rick and Morty casting any sense of continuity and canon to the wind.


It's not even the first time they've tried to get across that continuity doesn't matter. There have been plenty of instances where they've followed an entirely different Rick and Morty. At this point the viewers can't even be sure we're still following the Rick from episode 1 as he hasn't mentioned his dimension designation in quite awhile. And I'm convinced the c-137 thing isn't applied to only one Rick but rather a group of Rick's with a shared timeline. Not that it would matter since his entire family has been shown to be comprised of individuals from multiple realities that he's pulled together as replacements after one is lost.

Continuity has never mattered. We've been following different incarnations of the characters the entire time from different realities almost every episode.

Didn't they have an extra letter with the newscasters for the branches that left the subsequent ricks horribly disfigured?


This season has been mostly miss for me, tbh.

Rock and Morty is the new LOST for fandom.
People will ruin it because of all the fan theories.
Just sit and enjoy it or don't.

Sort of why I never got bent out of shape about LOST. Yeah, they fumbled the end - the last two seasons really. But I try to be fair and remember how crazy weird that show was and how much I looked forward to it every week. Do I wish they had stayed with crazy weird physics and time travel instead of metaphysics and spiritual bullshiat? Hell yeah. But it doesn't ruin how much fun I had on the way to the disappointment. I liken it to a super fun college road trip to a concert with friends. Yeah, sucks if the band blows once they come on stage. But I still had fun on the way so... don't  care. It's a fun show - that'll do.

Nobody is talking about the biggest take-away from the episode:

RIck can merge timelines.

He essentially destroyed hundreds/thousands of realities, and created a single new one where everything that happened in those realities, happened in that one.  Even the things that contradicted the other things.

That has huge implications, if it's ever revisited.

I mean, he still had the collars from the time police that merged all their fragmented realities.  It's not too much of a leap that Rick would find a way to use that.  He was still using the time crystals.

But seeing at the end he said "I'm not wasting our home to teach you a lesson" you could also possibly argue it was time travel, and he just picked and chose a reality where Morty really did all those awful things.  Other than the girl, none of his "re-dos" seemed to have taken place.  The tipping over the wheelchair bound man is probably what prompted the AARP, but not the re-do where he helps him across instead is apparently absent, as an example.

Which means he should have killed himself at least once in that timeline from the gorilla pits, so I'm not sure why people would be angry with a dead kid.

But its a show for fun, not to think about too heavily, so I'm going to stop myself there.

How stupid morons tell stores/have fan theories.


1: Evil Morty's origin might play out in every episode during the title sequence. The idea is that the Morty we see abandoned to those monsters is an alternate version who somehow survived and swore revenge on Rick for leaving him behind.

+


2: The theory makes a lot of sense,


=
THE FOOK IT DOES NOT


Same formula every single time and it is for morons that do not know how to tell a good story:
it happens off screen after we cut awawy from an implausible escape.

Just saying, nothing that would be rational to assume, from what we told/showed you, was.

No you can't just make it up off screen and say, yeah it was this way all along.

If you control the material then the only path to a good story is, you cannot directly lie to or deceive your audience.
If you showed them the bit of the monster jumping in the air about to land on Morty and cut away, that's real to them.

You wind up back at bad syndicated 'action" shows where right before the commercial break we show a situational setup of X.
But when we come back from the break, we've ever so slightly shifted the camera angle to rewritten the situaiotn to now include an out option for the character that we explicit setup before the break was not there.
.

I do understand where these armchair story tellers learned it from, but seriously that was some hack arse lazy junk for less smart people, evolve already.
