Season 4 of Rick and Morty is giving us a brand new, deeper look into the mind of our favorite genius, Rick Sanchez. Throughout the run of the show, people have speculated about what's going on with the smartest man in the universe. Today, I have gathered all the data I need to really dissect his brain. I think we may all have judged Rick a little too fast... or did we?

  • That's a lot like real life. I read somewhere that a lot of men go to the toilet not to go but, to get a break from everything. One of the few valid excuses to get away.

  • Honestly mat, you just frustrate me these days.

  • Rick's wife couldn't of died and she definitely raised Beth after he left her but We never see her in any universe he visits. There's no way she died in every reality. In the episode where bird person gets married, Rick says he couldn't make his marriage work. Insinuating that they broke up. Surely if he broke up with one, he could move to an identical universe but one where Rick doesn't exist and meet her again. It's more likely that his wife is just as clever as him and is hiding from him in every reality. Like the citadel of Rick but for her. Beth is very head strong and dominant over Jerry, it is likely that her mother was as well making her and Rick clash being both dominant. It's likely he wishes he'd given in more to her to make himself happy. Anyways, just a thought.

  • Well, I love this theory but remember- he is the smartest guy in the universe. So creating a new scenario of fake memory in his head, might be easier for him.

  • This episode hits really close to home for me. As someone who struggles with a few different mental illnesses, including MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) PTSD, and anxiety, as well as having an above average IQ, I relate a lot to Rick as a character. Thank you Matpat, I really think you handle these episodes that handle deeper topics really well and I appreciate that.

  • GUYS I HAVE A THEORY! so like, we know both Gravity false and RAM is connected. Bill is currently stuck in another dimension, with a bunch of monsters which we can see during the weirdmagedon. maybe the Rick that abandoned Beth was actually trapped in the dimension with bill & the monsters, which can explain why rick is so smart: Bill gave him his knowledge and as we saw on Gravity Falls, bill gave Stanford his knowledge. for a proof, the BIG theory about that ome episode when rick is running from the counsel and there are the mug and the pen and you know😂 so yeah I think it's a good theory tbh

  • I've been trying to put this out there on Reddit, and now to you, but.... What if Rick is actually Morty's dad and Beth is his mom. Rick gave Morty to her at a young age to be raised as her own, and this is why she resents Morty. This is why Rick had memories of Morty as a baby. Why Beth chooses her own cold over Morty so easily. Why Rick trys raising and influencing Morty, and why he cares so much about him... In his own twisted way...

  • Hmmm I thought he just used the story of simple rick with a few additions. I mean the reaction he gives to the other rick of being fine with life seems like simple rick. Who may have got caught in a bid for revenge after the murder.

  • It's not bcuz his wife is dead, its bcuz he said he doesn't mind joining her! That's why he says, dont tell me what to do! It's all about rick doing the opposite of what the person wants! Just for the sake of not forming to the norm!
