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.

    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.
