  • Dosen't even make sense though.... A Rick can't kill every other ricks family. There would at least be an equal number of universes where that doesn't happen. And what's the motive? As a Rick, the other Rick would know killing his family wouldn't achieve anything

  • There's still some things that confuse me about Rick's backstory, for one why did the other Rick kill Beth and Diane when Rick refused his offer of interdimensional travel? It's not like our Rick posed a threat to him or anything, so why go through the trouble of traumatizing him that way and creating an enemy for life? I get that across the multiverse Rick is pretty much consistently the biggest asshole in the universe but he's also not an idiot and knew that the biggest threat to him wasn't the Federation or some other enemy, it's another Rick, especially one with a vendetta against him. My guess is that he was jealous of our Rick's seeming happiness with his family and wanted to take it away from him to force our Rick to be just like every other Rick he had come across but even that doesn't really make a lot of sense to me since Rick's are inherently selfish so why care about what some other Rick has? I'm sure that I'm probably overthinking this, especially since the whole reason we were shown this in the first place was so the creators of the show could put the Evil Morty plot to bed as well as answer a lot of questions fans have had about Rick and his backstory. Will we see this version of Rick that ruined C137's life again? I hope so, but considering how they've said they want to get away from the cannon heavy episodes and focus more on telling stories that aren't necessarily interconnected to each other I wouldn't bet on it, at least not for a while.

  • I think the infinite finite curve thing they talked about is actually something else. Our Rick invented it and we know that unlike the other Ricks he genuinely cares for his family. If you look at the end, all the universes were in blue as opposed to yellow which is what Evil Morty was looking at. In all the blue universes, it showed Rick and Morty getting along and having fun. I think our Rick separated all the universes with the good Ricks vs. the bad Ricks to make sure no other Rick had to experience what he experienced. I think that's gonna be the twist. That the Infinite finite curve was just that. This way, our Rick, any time he needed to, could switch universes since most bad Ricks didn't stay with their families. That's why he stayed with the bad Ricks on this side of the curve.

  • The moment you realize C-137 Rick’s nickname was subtly dropped in the first citadel of Ricks episode. The council outright calls him a Rogue... he’s Rogue Rick. The Rick with nothing left to lose... arguably the Rickest Rick of all

  • This is so fucking fascinating when you stop and think about it. Our Rick was like simple Rick and his wood working. He was off the CFC. Rick’s tried to spread their genius to other universes and when that failed, they gave them an incentive to become that genius i.e. killing Beth and Diane. And that Rick who tried to make more ended up creating the most dangerous and Rickest Rick. The CFC doesn’t just exist to make sure Ricks are at the top. It’s so that another c137 Rick never happens again.

  • As it turns out, it was all about avenging his dead family... Not to say the Szechuan sauce WASN'T what it was about, but avenging his family certainly wasn't fake.

  • 2:31 you can still see the cracked outline around the house when it was teleported to a different dimension in Ricksy Buisness, an animation error perhaps? As Rick had already been around in Beth’s life during the time of that episode.

  • Great last episode however... I'M SO ABSOLUTELY SICK of that after credits character! What an absolute anticlimax after what the episode did, this is so pathetic and annoying. It's like the Resident Evil games, keep shoving the characters we couldn't give 2 shlts about back in our face for some reason. Can we stop that guys?

  • In episode Ricksy Business they teleport the house to the other dimension causing the crack on the ground in front of the garage entrance. Still when Rick crashed into Beth's house the crack is already there! It cannot be there, because they just start adventuring with Morty after this! Why is the crack there? It is too obvious to be goof only!

  • I liked it but I think they shouldn't have done this cannon dump. I would've like to have seen them unravel the story bit by bit. I understand their commentary that you're not supposed to care about the backstory; but I disagree I can enjoy R&M anyway I want to. I enjoyed the serialized elements of the show more than the episodic ones. I think there is a message that the writers are sending is that they think the show is better without the crybaby backtsory because it limits options, and also moves the characters into safer narrative archetypes. Rick really was an antihero or a villian, now he's a good guy that we can cheer for. A lot of the questions about the nature of good & evil & cosmic power aren't really relevant anymore because you now know how to feel about Ricks actions & attitude. I think I would like them to reset this at some point...it would be a funny trick on the audience.

    Lygar XLygar XDay ago
  • Wait so is C-137 the reason why so many beth's were "abandoned"? As in they weren't abandoned but the Ricks were killed by C-137 during his grief-stricken revenge campaign to go kill the Rick who killed his family? Is the killer Rick inside or outside the central finite curve that the Rick's created?

    The Last RemnantThe Last RemnantDay ago
  • This Rick is truly alone. His Beth is dead. His morty never existed in the first place. His wife is dead. Makes you wonder though... Why would he go to all these different realities to live with Beths and Jerries and Morties, but not go find one with his wife? We never see any Rick with Beth's mother ever, at any point. You'd think on the citadel there would be some, somewhere. Whether from a dimension or a clone or something else. Not all of them could've died across the infinite dimensions of the central finite curve.

    TheDrexxusTheDrexxusDay ago
    • maybe its because it might get those other ricks to get their own family what happened to him happen to that family and it might make them target him but keep on failing to kill him or do what he did to him and do it to another rick(hopefully that's not too confusing), and so it might spark a deadly paradox just like the start of season 5 where the clone paradox happened but they have no families and so they don't seem to care much about the destruction they are making and only target each other and because some are smarter than other maybe a genetically self advanced brains which could make them more powerful or even some might don't care at all and finds a way to destroy the whole multiverse and dimensions, so literally rick c137 might be the superhero in this story. the thing is that if just a person can open up portals to other timeline which makes it unstable and make an infinite paradox and very soon there might be a galactic ricks that has already started to take over the timelines, and realities destroying/conquering them. holy shit did i just made a whole paragraph?. im just gonna stop there

  • What I still don’t get is that when rick and Marty left the cronenberg dimension they travelled to one that was identical except for the fact that rick fixed things and that him and Marty died. So with the replacement dimension, does that mean there was another rick who lost his wife and daughter and went on a killing that spree? That would make it strange as to why the council only suspected Rick C137 in S1E10 if more than one Rick did the killing spree

  • It would be interesting if the Rick who killed C-137 Rick's family was the one who raised Evil Morty. It brings home the idea that "Evil" Rick and Morty brought upon the end and beginning of significant chapters of C-137 Rick and Morty's life; both opened the door for an infinite number of possibilities for the latter duo. or idk, maybe it comes off as too predictable fml wubba lubba dub dub

  • Am i the only one who thinks this is bullshit? I dont mean its not real, it is, but the writers just pushed some crap thorugh to shut up the fans and get back to more woke adventures with summer and naruto. They literally pOured the potential for a great, nuanced backstory and the entire evil morty storyline down the drain, and gave us a thirty second child-like explanation of rick's past. Don't like the direction the show is taking on this. Would have been great if they slowly built up and revealed an actual, complex past instead. and made evil morty something that actually was fearsome.

He hesitate to replace their Rick and became a lie to them? Or is it possible that the timelines where Diane and Beth were alive happened to exist outside the CFC? And Rick is too focus on vengeance to think about it?? Guessing.
