Very few animated shows have managed to achieve the cult status that Rick and Morty have acquired. The SciFi animated series follows the quirky duo of an alcoholic and narcissistic grandfather, Rick, who also happens to be the smartest man in the universe. And his teenage grandson Morty, with uncertainty and fear. The fifth season ended with Evil Morty preparing to escape Central Finite Curve. Now, fans have been biting their nails in anticipation of Rick And Morty Season 6. But until its release, let’s take a look at some of the speculated theories for Rick And Morty’s upcoming season.
Jerry is Beth’s ‘Morty’?
Rick has kept Morty around since Season 1 to balance out his waves of genius. We also learned that Beth is like her father as the series progresses. So who denies Beth’s genius?
You, like a Reddit user, speculated that this was on its way. Jerry may be Beth’s Morty, the idiot who is always by her side and whose main job is to hide her from opponents. It’s unlikely that Beth is using Jerry this way on purpose. She seemed to care on a certain level. Rick’s willingness to put up with Jerry’s least-favorite relative of Smith, however, may be explained by his daughter’s need for protection.
Rick And Morty Season 6: Beth Won’t Die Until Rick Stays!
The fifth season episode titled “Rickternal Friendship of the Spotless Mort” made a shocking revelation. As Rick joined forces with Birdperson’s memory of his previous self, we learned about Beth’s tragic fate across multiple timelines. Rick’s living with Beth also makes him one of the “scary” Ricks living with his dead daughter.
This insight creates an intriguing potential dilemma. Beth, as we know her, is furious with her father for neglecting her. Perhaps the only universes in which Beth survives are those in which her father abandons her. With the death of Beth, the rest of his stay comes to an end. If this is the case, Rick’s abandonment can be considered an act of love at least in part. But given how likely it is that those Beths died as a result of an enemy or a blunder from Rick, that generosity can only go so far.
Ricks who chose Beth and Diane are now vulnerable to other Ricks?
Another intriguing idea about the multiverse and the central finite curve is circulating among the fans. Some fans, like Reddit users, believe that the Curve didn’t just separate Ricks from everyone else, but rather “all the realities where Rick is the smartest megalomaniac in the cosmos of all those where he isn’t.”
The user further speculates that Ricks like C-137, who choose to stay with their household rather than research, are separated from the more damaging super genius Ricks, like the one who killed his family. The Redditor believes those families are in danger now that the prison gates have been opened.
There won’t be a lot of interdimensional travel in Rick and Morty season 6
At the end of Season 5, Rick’s portal gun was empty, leaving Rick and Morty aboard the Mortyburg ship with all of the recovered Mortys. With Evil Morty stealing all the portal fluid on the Citadel. And past episodes indicating it’s hard to find, requiring “bootleg” fluid as mentioned in “The Ricklantis Mixup,” viewers are concerned that Rick and Morty may not be able to break through anywhere for a while.
A Redditor predicts that we won’t be seeing much interdimensional travel in Rick And Morty Season 6 for a while, and that we’ll be seeing more standalone episodes instead. Not only may Rick be short on supplies, but he may also be reluctant to portal anywhere due to the central finite curve breaking.
