"Rick and Morty" season 3 is yet to disappoint. Every episode has been solid front to back. Do I have a favorite? Yes. Do you? Probably. But that doesn’t matter, because "Morty’s mind Blowers" did exactly what it was supposed to do: be “Interdimensional Cable” III.

The writers weren’t subtle about it. The show opened and closed on dialogue centered on watching “Interdimensional Cable.” Before the opening title screen, Rick breaks the fourth wall and tells the viewers, “… we’ll be doing this instead of 'Interdimensional Cable.'”

It is not a secret, by any means. This is “Interdimensional Cable” III.

Will we get an “Interdimensional Cable” IV? Will it be “Morty’s Mind Blowers” II? Will it be something new entirely?

What's next?

I don’t know. I’m pretty sure the writing staff doesn’t know. I think it’s just unknown at this point. But that doesn’t detract from the awesomeness that was “Morty’s Mind Blowers.”

The ever-comically-vigilant writing staff behind "Rick and Morty" put together an excellent clip show with everything from the blasphemy of an alien religion to a mistaken case of lunar pedophilia to a “Star Wars: A New Hope” parody and what can only be described as the Illuminati run by hyper-intelligent squirrels.

With the entirety of every universe at their fingertips, the "Rick and Morty" writers do a top-notch job writing together so many stories in a twenty-minute period.

The main arc remained intact as well; a theme often forgone in clip shows entirely.

Though, the brief period between Morty’s decision to commit suicide and Summer walking on the scene revealed something new about Rick’s true feelings regarding Morty.

A different Rick

With no memory and only Morty’s word to go on, Rick agrees to kill himself too based solely on Morty’s emotional dedication.

Before the memory wipe, Rick makes a conscious effort to remind his grandson how worthless he is, going so far as to explain how Morty is “a piece of s*** and (he) can prove it mathematically” in season two, episode one, “A Rickle In Time.”

Rick has openly shown his disdain for Morty’s ideas, such as in season one, episode five, “Meeseeks and Destroy,” where Morty demands to go on an adventure after agreeing to be Rick’s sidekick for so many other adventures.

Rick reluctantly agrees and actively berates Morty’s decision-making ability for a majority of the adventure, mocking him at every turn.

However, without his preconceived notions, Rick happily makes a suicide pact with Morty based on his word, which is something pre-mind-wipe Rick would never have agreed to.

So what does this say about the relationship between Rick and Morty? Has Rick finally started rubbing off on Morty like Beth predicted he would in the pilot? Has Rick changed despite what Unity said to him in season two? Is Rick really Rick? Is Morty really Morty? Is anyone really anyone? Probably not.
