    you can see rick and mortys graves in the plantina episode but what if Morty couldn’t handle all the trauma and that’s what makes him snap and I in one episode he kills Rick and then he freaks out like him having to bury himself in the start and then after that him having to go through all that heartbreak and stuff and then rick just being a total jerk he is, this might just be an alternate version of what could’ve happened to c-137

    Theory: in the Planet talent show episode Morty sees a picture of rick holding morty but morty notices that it isnt him. Meaning maybe rick c137 is evil morty's rick. When he ask bird person who it is bird person changes the subject

    I don't know about being Evil Morty, but yes there's various bits saying this is not the same family. in s5e3 there's a part where Rick calls Summer "Summerfest". He's absolutely always called her "Sum-Sum" until now, and no one thought it was off.

  • Iris

    I think episode 6 of Season 5 actually confirms this theory. Before planning the Turkey Trick, Jerry asks Rick "Jesus how many times have you done that?" And Rick says, "I don't know, how many year have I been here? *Careful how you answer that!*" Rick looks completely sincere when he tells Jerry to be careful about what he says next. I think it's because Jerry's answer would let us know whether the Rick we're watching has been there for just a few years, or if this is Rick who's been with the Smith family for Morty's whole life.

    I wish this were true. It'd be SO COOL to have this sort of meta twist in the narrative, and even better is that it would be to reminiscent of earlier, (AND BETTER) R&M stories. Sadly, it's more likely something as simple as most of the original (and BETTER) writers jumping ship for Justin Roiland's _Solar Opposites_ as well as others leaving for Marvel/Disney. (Both of which have already been confirmed by Dan Harmon himself) With how much the stories and writing have gone down hill, it feels more accurate to say that this is nothing clever that they're doing ON PURPOSE...just the quality in the writers room going way, WAY down. 😐

    Okay I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this video….. totally changed how I look at season 5! I must point out though in Ep 3 when Morty and Planetina are flying away from the house you can see the graves for C-132 Rick and Morty in the backyard. You can tell because it’s dirt and stuff but 1) have we even seen the graves like this before? Does this mean it’s possible the graves in S5E3 are actually the bodies of C-137 Rick and Morty- somehow done by evil Morty? Or 2) does that mean that this is in fact C-137 Rick and Morty that we have been watching all this time just like the rest of the show? (For the most part of course we had the decoy episode) P.S. I love how they make fun of the fans and especially the theorists that watch the show. It only adds to the excitement for me!

    I have bad news. It’s not that the reason the show feels “off” is because it’s not our Rick and morty. It’s because the show isn’t good anymore. Just like what happened to the simpsons now it’s just gonna be terrible episodes made for money. The show is booked for 10 seasons right now. The show is just bad now and it’s sucks because Rick and morty has always been a bit different. Super meta and very smart but the show is just at its end. Season 4 was the beginning of the end. But not because of actually seasons of the show. It was the beginning of a bad Rick and morty

    This theory was almost so cool, but many things debunk this. For example, when planetina flies away from Morty after they break up, you can see the grave of the Rick n Morty from the episode where our Rick n morty came to this reality and buried their own bodies.

    But more likely I think that the evil Morty is Rick's original morty from his original timeline, a reality in which Rick abandoned. Just like he and the Mortiest Morty did in season 1 and again in season 3 that was revealed in Mortys mind blowers when he fucked with squirrels. I think C-137 is actually from reality C-135 (evil Mortys reality)

    I think this may be an origin story for evil Morty, except that the reveal is that the evil Morty is part of a decoy family. When asked "candidate Morty, who is your Rick and what's your original timeline?" He responds, "Geez, we moved around so much that it's hard to keep track" And during all the confusion in that episode in season 5, the Mortys switched

    The part talking about "it wouldn't make sense for it not to make sense since Rick and Marty to have a nemesis in the ocean since they went to Atlantis in season 3" Doesn't track, 《Mr. Nimbus》: fine Rick, if it's a war with Atlantis that you want, so be it. 《Rick》: Oh I already went to war with Atlantis when I D-Dayed that mermaid puss. 《Mr. Nimbus》: I knew that was you!

    I actually have more proof to back up the theory that this is a different family,in the season 4 episode (I forgot the name) the one with the face huggers Morty says the very Peculiar line, “next time can I get a laser whip?” And in season 5 episode 2 there’s a Morty that gets a laser whip, and I believe that was morty and Rick from C-137, and later in the episode is revealed to not be the real family witch I believe is what the creators want us to think.

    Honestly I think it would be cool if season 5’s Rick and morty are just the ones from c-132, and episode 8 or 9 just ends with Rick and morty being murdered then the last episode or so is the setup for some big canon stuff in season 6?

    I don't think the writing team gets enough credit for using the multiverse theory in the most fun way that I show could. They don't over explain it to where we could pick it apart for flaws, but they explain it in a way that leaves it mysterious and promotes theory's on the show which let's be honest is free advertising. It also gives the show a sense of magical wonder while remaining true to it's story rules. The use of the multiverse helps the writing team cover the shows flaws but also gives the complete creative freedom to do whatever they want with the show which is ultimately the theme of Rick and Morty "The only rule, is that there are no rules"

    Interesting theory but a bit of a stretch, if this is an origin that takes place in the past then Space Beth should not be there. Also in one of the episodes we see the graves, and mr nimbus says to Rick he knew it was him that slayed the mermaid puss.

    It's kind of a common rule that cartoons don't age, look at the Simpsons and South Park. And the thing with Planetina, she was murdering people, Morty broke up with her, that doesn't sound like an evil Morty. Morty without toxins seems more like evil Morty. If this season is a different Morty, this Morty does not seem capable of taking over the Citadel, this Morty seems more like a normal teenager, than evil genius.
