Rick and Morty Season 3, Episode 7 Summary and Review: The Ricklantis Mixup

This contains spoilers from the latest episode of Rick and Morty.

So today I watched the latest episode of Rick and Morty, an adult show from Adult Swim created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, and oh my glob, this episode was an amazing surprise. 

This episode give me a different feeling to any other other episode. I could feel like there was going to be a big reveal, and oh man, there was but I ain't saying what it is now. You'll have to read the article to find out or just watch the show on Adult Swim or Netflix. Anyway, let me tell you a quick summary of the main plot.

The Main Plot

The episode opens in a familiar situation, Rick's garage, we see a Rick and Morty come through a portal and ask Rick and Morty if they'd like to help with rebuilding the Citadel and Rick tells them that he was the person that blew it up and that he never agreed with the Citadel and their ways.

The other Rick and Morty leave looking displeased and Rick and Morty carry on with getting ready for their trip to Atlantis. We cut to the Citadel and see that many Ricks and Mortys are fighting but we also see that there are Ricks that are running for presidents but also a Morty who gets joked as cute.

The Morty's (Let's call him Politician Morty) campaign team (who are all Mortys) tells him that he should give in because it's a losing battle but he won't give in, and in the final debate he goes up against other Ricks, and when it gets to Politician Morty he gives an amazing speech about how he feels that he could fix the situation and every Rick and Morty loves it.

Politician Morty leaves the stage and one of his team members says that he didn't believe he could do it, so Politician Morty says that he's fired for being so negative.

Afterwards we see the campaign team member in a bar and a Detective Rick hands him a file that contains secrets on Politician Morty. We then see later that Politician Morty is exiting from a question session and he asks the campaign team member Morty if he got a new job and he says yeah, assassinating Politician Morty and he shoots him.

The team member Morty is tackled to the grounds and thrown in prison. At the prison we learn that Politician Morty had won the election, making him President Morty. The team member Morty tries to warn the Rick guards of who President Morty really is but before he can, he's sucked into space through a vacuum hole.

We cut to a room where a Rick who runs a company walks in and sits down and another Rick starts to say how that the Ricks in the room had run the Citadel before any of the stuff happened and President Morty asks if that counts for everyone and some of them say yes so he asks the Ricks who think that's true and some of them agree by raising his hands and Morty clicks his fingers and they're all killed and President Morty gets up and pours himself a drink and starts to say some words and says "but speeches are for campaigning now is time for action." 

The camera cuts outside the Citadel and we see all the people that have died in the episode accompanied by "For The Damage Coda," which many fans know it as the Evil Morty theme and who else do we see but the team member and the secret files float by and we see pictures of Evil Morty and Evil Rick as well as a picture of President Morty with wires hanging from his face.

There are four plots in this episode, but I only decided to focus on the main one. Watch the episode if you want to see the other plots. The Evil Morty reveal was perfect to me but I picked up before the pictures were shown because of the music. Overall, I loved this episode and it gives me the vibe of the end of Season 2, which was amazing.

Thank you for reading this review, I hope you all have a wonderful day.
