This season of Rick and Morty feels different... and I'm not the only one to think so! Many fans of the series have pointed out how this felt like a return to season on Rick and Morty, dropping the more overarching story feel of the past few seasons. I think that was done for a REASON! A reason that I think is based on something fans have been asking to see for a long time - Evil Morty's origin story! Theorists, get ready for a wild timey-wimey ride!

    This is c137 ep 7 the leaked episode confirms this by one of the ricks referring to season 5 Rick as C137 and to nail the coffin go to episode 3, go to the frame where plantina leaves there you can see the C132 graves of Rick and morty.

    I came back because I'm watching season 5 again now and I noticed in episode 1 Morty says "I haven't been to a full week of school in years" or something, but I realized, if they established that he's 14, Rick should have just arrived in his life if this is "our" Morty. He *started* missing school at 14, he hadn't been missing it for years. I'm convinced this theory is correct.

    Something tells me that if this were an origin story, either some episodes are C-137 based and some are Evil Morty based, or both Season 4 and 5 are Evil Morty based, or it's all just C-137 based, this is so confusing because Jerry mentions Rick fricking a planet at the beginning of Season 5, even though that happened in Season 4, and Space Beth appeared in both seasons as well, then we get a second christmas episode and Morty ends up being 14 again, curse you Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, you have fried my brain once again

    Nah , just going the family guy way . The characters are only instruments in the story now , not actual consistent characters. Even if its all revealed to be another dimension, its gonna be another heist episode situation. By purposely making something bad or inconsistent to prove a point you're still wasting everyone's time making something inconsistent and bad. A bunch of episodes this season have been extreme weak

    Id bet money thats not a smart Morty who outsmarted Ricks or something. As sad and boring as it would be. To me it makes way more sense that evil Morty is actually a Rick. With how much the show has shown off that its very easy for rick to switch bodies with that Fly alien guy who was trying to get info from him, then hoped around from rick to rick over and over to destroy the Citadel im pretty much convinced its just a Rick who put his mind in a Morty to hide from the other ricks as he trees to take over. Seems way more likely than a genius evil Morty to me at least. Ill be disappointing if thats the case.. but the chances of a rick doing that is WAY more likely plausibility wise than a Morty somehow pulling it off.

    Think about it like this. Technically within the cannon of the show there's an infinite number of the characters and universes and scenarios and timelines. So really every theory is correct within one of the universes in the show.

    İ thought it was that baby of that soldier of the galactic fedaration. İ’ll give you all the details a remember. First there’s this alien whose species is the soldier alien of the galactic fedaration but not of the species that interviewed rick and he gets a job and a wife then they have baby that screams and that appears to be the noise it makes when it’s happy but the alien struggles at work then is forced to serve in the military against his wife’s wishes then gets killed by morty wich shoots him while rick is fixing there ship. At first he doesn’t want to do it but after rick screams at him to do it and he also says that they don’t have famallies. The alien dies the wife hears the news and grieves him and is super sad and when the baby finds out that his thats dead he stops screaming. And thats the end of the video and all the motovations are there. Sorry for the grammar it’s 10:58 in my country.

    I like the idea of this theory, however I don't think some of the evidence made sense, like morty aging since the crew or Justin or Dan (can't recall specifically who) said they think it's fun not to have birthdays or have the characters age when being asked about how old Rick is. Again, I love the idea of this theory but some of it doesn't make perfect sense.

    the planetina episode was perfect. he says morty was immature? its an adult cartoon of a 14 year old boy in his first reciprocal relationship! he handled the part with his mom about as well as i did. and he broke up with her ignoring his base instinct because planetina was crazy and evil at that point. thats way more mature than i would have been, most of us would have stuck around for the puss. (btw the whole planetina episode perfectly encapsulated how i feel as someone who grew up watching those shows, cares about the environment. then the whole "green" movement went totally planetina, but i digress)

    I agree there's a good chance this rick and morty is not C137 Rick and Morty. That would actually explain a lot. Both Rick and Morty feel "different" since the beginning of season 5. Now this morty is going to become "Evil Morty"... I'm not sure about that. Feels like Evil Morty has been mostly used as "misdirection" so far.

    the problem about the Planetina episode playing into this is that if you look closely in the background when Planetina is flying off, you CAN see the spots where C-137 Rick and Morty buried their C-132 selves, meaning this is still the same reality and the same Morty as always...
