What happened in Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 6?
The last episode before the extended break, “Juricksic Mort,” saw dinosaurs coming down to Earth in Arrival-style spaceships. While watching TV, Rick (and the audience) is reminded that there’s still a massive rift out in space. Not to mention, his Portal Gun is still messed up. When he shoots it, the Cthulhu-esque monster from the Season 6 title sequence bursts through, which is a problem, so he closes the portal.
We learn that these technologically advanced dinos left Earth long ago in order to go help other planets. Needless to say, they’re bummed to come back and find out that the rest of their species has gone extinct. They are also disgusted by the many problems humans created in their absence. The dinosaurs quickly convert the world into a utopian society, fixing all of the existing problems on Earth, including world hunger, war, and the existence of the stock market. People don’t need to work, food and clothes are free, and everything is so great that there’s no news to report in the newspaper — except now everyone is starting to feel like they no longer have a purpose in life other than simply existing.
Rick’s frenemy, the President of the United States, asks to meet with him. There, the President asks Rick to get rid of the dinosaurs, because he wants to return to the ways of fixing all of the problems he creates for everyone. In exchange, Rick wants to host the Oscars — which he does at the end of the episode.
The dinosaurs offer to close the rift in space, but Rick wants to leave it because it will be fuel for tons more episodes and adventures in the series to come. Traveling to the planets the dinosaurs are supposed to have helped, Rick discovers that they are all in terrible shape with nothing to show for it but big craters on the planets. As it turns out, the meteors that hit the planets (including Earth) are sentient and the sworn enemies of the dinosaurs.
With the truth now out, the dinos get some bad PR back on Earth. So they head to Mars and await the meteor to destroy it. Rick comes to save them, but the dinosaurs end up saving everyone instead and fix the space rift along the way. Once back down on Earth, Rick finally fixes his Portal Gun once and for all and celebrates by taking Morty on a trip to Boob World.
Will there be a Rick and Morty Season 7?
The good news for fans is that even though there are only three episodes remaining in the season after this week’s installment, creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have committed to Cartoon Network for one more season of Rick and Morty at the very least. In fact, the creators have even said that they are currently midway through writing Season 8 as part of their 100-episode contract.
