TV Review: Rick and Morty (Season 3, Episode 2)
Share This Article:
All the dimensions and timelines- rejoice! Rick and Morty have finally returned, and, after a week-long wait, season three is officially (Rick)-rolling in the UK! The second episode of season three has reintroduced and reinforced the topic of actions and their multiversal consequences, which has being an ongoing theme since the middle of season two. Beth and Jerry have finally divorced under Rick’s pressure (and possibly because their relationship has been dysfunctional for as long as we’ve known them), Rick continues his ravishings around multiple universes and timelines in search of energy sources and suspicious science artefacts, Morty is still M-m-m-mortified by his own existence and Summer? Well, she’s definitely switched to another mode. And yes, it is all about actions and consequences - as Morty and Summer’s unusual behaviour this episode is driven by their subconscious efforts to deal with the unadmitted (but latent) trauma of their parent’s divorce. Sounds like it’s getting too serious? Well, we never pretended that Rick and Morty is a kids show. As Jerry is embracing his usually JeLLy self, and abandoning the situation without a single attempt to fight for his supposed-love, Beth is attempting to bond with the kids. Only problem is they are a few timelines away and as per usual, she can’t tell the robots apart from her own children. -5 points for parenting there Beth. And +10 to Rick for the quality of his child-like robots.
