Rick and Morty Season 6 launched a real large unhealthy within the sequence – and never surprisingly it turned out to be Rick himself. “Rick Prime” had managed to cover within the wings of the multiverse for a while earlier than being ferreted out by Rick C-137, and he shortly proved himself to be as self-centered and ruthless as any Rick we have ever seen. Rick Prime outwitted Rick C-137 and his Morty and even murdered Morty’s unique dad (Jerry) who survived within the Cronenberg Universe.
With that form of entrance, Rick and Morty followers have been prepared and ready for Rick Prime to strike again and wreak havoc for Rick C-137 and the Smith Household. However as at all times with Rick and Morty, followers are unsure about whether or not or not show creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon even care about large unhealthy villains, season story arcs, or show canon – particularly after the closely meta first episode of Season 6B. After how lengthy it took the saga with Evil Morty to play out (Seasons 1-5) it might conceivably be years earlier than we see Rick Prime once more after his lethal debut within the Season 6 premiere.
ComicBook.com’s Nick Valdez talked to Rick and Morty showrunner/producer Scott Marder about Rick and Morty‘s return for Season 6B (now airing Sundays on Grownup Swim). Throughout that interview, Marder was coy about speaking Rick Prime, however hinted that he positively has a bigger position to play within the show:
He’s positively formidable, Marder mentioned in response to a query about simply how large of a hazard Rick Prime represents.
When requested if it is going to be one other ridiculous wait earlier than we see Rick Prime once more, Marder would solely say “I can not say when, however you may positively see him once more.”
Rick and Morty Season 6A has sparked a complete new wave of fan theories – lots of them converging on the concept that where we initially thought an Evil Morty could be the principle antagonist of the show, it now appears potential that a whole “Evil Smith Household” might take form over the subsequent season or so. Rick Prime has arrived, however one other evil mastermind, Night time Summer season, additionally rose up as a risk – one nonetheless arguably lurking within the psychological shadows. Cronenberg Jerry acquired killed – however might simply be Frankensteined by Rick Prime (becoming), and House Beth is a personality some suppose might flip sides. If Evil Morty reveals up once more from the universe past, then the “Evil Smith Household” cabal could be full.
Even with out accomplices, Rick Prime nonetheless wants to return gunning for C-137, with a view to escape the present predicament of being trapped in his unique universe. He looks as if the form of villain that would not thoughts destroying the universe, simply to get again to the multiverse.
Rick and Morty Season 6B is now airing Sunday nights on Grownup Swim.
