Episode aired November 12, 2023
The episode opens with showing Evil Morty’s backstory; while his Rick was drunk, Evil Morty altered him to be his servant, leading into his actions throughout the series. His retirement is interrupted by portals opening, caused by Rick and Morty searching for Rick Prime. Evil Morty confronts Rick and Morty, and all three are captured by Rick Prime, along with other Ricks whose wives were killed by him. After surviving a gladiator match with the other Ricks, they find Rick Prime and learn he built the “Omega Device”, which can erase anyone from every universe, which he used to erase Rick’s wife and demonstrates by erasing Slow Mobius. Evil Morty incapacitates Rick Prime, steals and deactivates the Omega Device, and allows Rick to beat Rick Prime to death. As Rick and Morty return home, Rick feels like he’s lost his purpose after finally killing Rick Prime.
Post-credits scene : Slow Mobius’ wife goes searching for Slow Mobius throughout the multiverse to no avail, the same way Rick searched for Rick Prime. She eventually meets an alien who lost his wife, and they marry. Content with her new life, she lets go of her search for Slow Mobius.

Wow, another adventure where I went up an ass.
Oh, good, are we having this fight again? L-let me guess, y-you’re gonna leave or, or throw a sulking fit?
You think you know everything, Rick, but you’re basically just a giant 8-year-old.
I’m not doing this anymore. Either you’re in or you’re out, Morty. I’m tired of you weaponizing this half-assed threat. You want out, then fucking quit!
You know what, you’re right. Sorry to be such a high-maintenance Morty. Why don’t I get you a drink?
Oh, oh, hey, Morty!
Hey, Rick. You drunk yet?
You’re my little buddy, [burps] you know that? I-it’s you and me, Morty. Rick and Morty, 100 years. Forever.
Yeah, pal. Rick and Morty, 100 years. Forever.
G-g-get off me. W-w-what are you doing? Ahhhh!
An eye patch? You know how we feel about pirates.
Oh, my God! What is happening!
Do your worst you little bastards! Kill me! Do it! Do it! [Grunts]
It works! Now we can visit infinite universes!
But doesn’t that mean infinite other families can do the same?
Honey, infinite families don’t invent the world’s first–
[Chuckles] It works! Oh, do you realize how free and empowered I just made us?
[All scream] I did it! Best father ever!
And how were the horrors of the infinite today, sir?
Ahh, just another day in paradise.
Well, not the stealthiest technique, but if this guy doesn’t know I’m hunting him, he’s not worth hunting.
It’s just good to see you outside the subbasement. Even if you never kill the version of yourself that killed your wife. Giving it your best shot, it looks good on you.
Thanks, buddy. It means a lot that your bar for mental health has gotten lower than mine.
A good wind stays under the wings, baby!
Merging dimensions to consolidate my decoys, huh? Kind of– first-thought, but the– craftsmanship, pretty impressive. For a lesser Rick.
What the fuck are you doing? Oh, shit! Evil Morty! Sho-should I grab the net?!
Hang tight, Morty’s getting the net.
Wait. Is this what I think it is? Of course it is. Everything’s what I think it is. You’re basically fracking the Central Finite Curve to flush out a version of yourself? Shouldn’t you be turning yourself into a pickle?
What do you care what I do to the Curve? I-I thought your whole gimmick was fucking off. Certainly what made me a fan.
You’re right, I don’t live here, which is why it’s insane that you’re still bugging me.
The shockwaves have more range than I thought.
Jesus, you heard a compliment? A monkey humping a shotgun has “more range than he thought.” Look at this scan array.
Why would I touch it when I don’t want it improved?
You’re hitting infinite targets. At least filter for probability stasis.
I was gonna. Duh.
[Panting] I can’t find the net! Sh-should we just shoot him?
You really think a douche that smug doesn’t keep a force field on?
Yeah, listen to Pop-Pop, Morty.
Eh. I’d be an idiot if I didn’t check.
Well, I’m not gonna backpedal every time I do it.
You changing something? He’s filtering for probability stasis.
Ugh, are you still here? And are you just teeing him up now?
Is that the guy?
You’re acting like this one’s different.
He is different. But different doesn’t mean him. Could be a trap.
I’ll explain. He’s worried that it’s actually your target and he’d owe me credit for the kill.
Are you serious right now? You little narcissist.
Dude, literal glass house.
You think you’re better than me?
Jesus, I hope so!
[Clears throat] Can I offer my two cents?
Well, that’s different.
Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa!
Everybody look at the bright side. Evil Morty got to experience being wrong before he died.
It’s true, that’s what I get for talking to you instead of killing you.
What is this place?
I assume a box to contain Ricks that get too close to the big guy.
Are you basing that on what you’d do? Since you’re all the same.
I’m basing it on the ensemble of thematic Ricks huddled opposite your POV.
[Whistles] Fresh meat.
Pick a lane, buddy.
Yeah, you can’t do the “Fresh Meat” line while cowering in shadow.
You get here same way we did? Hunting Rick Prime?
How did you arrive with two Mortys?
Attachment is death, bro. That’s what I’ve learned chasing this guy.
Instead of Ricksplaining how we all ended up in a Roach Motel, let’s pool some data. Who got here first?
Me. I knocked off three clones for this door prize.
Oh, wow, three.
He killed my wife!
All: We know.
[Groans] You son of a bitch! You killed my wife!
Is it just this? Is this the torture?
Looks like there’s enough of you to start the next ride! That or just one really heavy Rick. This whole thing is automated, which I do point out specifically to enhance the humiliation. Here we go!
[All scream] If you’re seeing this, you’re me, except, you know, less. But you acted like you were better, so I killed your beloved Diane. Partly to devastate you, mostly so I only have to record one message. Some of you may have noticed that it’s not just your Diane that’s gone. She’s also been erased from every universe across infinity. And you might be wondering why.
I’d rather hear how.
Diane was wiped from all existence by The Weapon Too Cool for a Name.
The Omega Device.
Known to inferiors as The Omega Device.
I heard the name from an inferior.
And it’s my weapon. But it’s your fault I had to use it on her. So if you want to see the Rick that ruined your life, look around. There’s so many of you. But that’s why I want to make a deal. One of you is going to get your Diane back.
He’s lying. He’s lying!
All you have to do is be the last Rick left.
Got that out of your system? He can’t bring her back!
Wait, wait, wait! I’m a nice Rick.
You’re such a dick! We could’ve worked together!
Actually, I’m nice enough to not lie about this. I was definitely gonna kill you guys. Ah!
Oh, hey, guys.
I’m clear, Rick! Take the shot!
I thought you wanted to “work together.”
Just until you could kill him!
And they call me Evil Morty.
The easiest way out of any box is to be the least shaped like a box. We both hate Rick Prime more than each other anyway.
Where’d you get that?
He’s the worst Rick.
Big deal. The worst turd is a pizza.
Whoa! Tough customer.
How is the worst turd a-a pizza?
Seems like he doesn’t play well with others. We all cool just killing this guy?
Rick Prime: Great job, final Rick! Or if you were just one fat Rick, impressive cardio! And now the big reveal. Do you get Diane back? Not in any real sense, because when I build a weapon, it works. It’s called being talented. But I do have a Diane that promises to be with you until death. But I’d get to the death part fast. You don’t want to be in here when this place resets.
You sucked at eating pussy!
Clearly just said to be hurtful, but I also won’t deny it. I was young.
God, I miss that face.
Rick, you never told me he killed your wife across infinity.
Yeah, now I want to meet this guy, too.
I don’t want to talk about this.
I always thought your Dick smelled weird!
[Stuttering] Come on b-baby, g-give my g-ghost a k-kiss. Mwah.
You taking her to go? Whoa! Looks like we survived the box.
You should count chickens professionally, Morty.
I didn’t trigger that!
Alright, let’s bail before this oven self-cleans.
What do you think? Subether barrier blocking the portal fluid?
Can’t be that. Mine would get through it.
Here, gimme that.
Don’t freak out. I’m gonna tweak this.
Carry the two, hold the three…
You need some kind of vector.
I was getting there.
[Gasps] The goo! The goo from the trap!
Come on, go, go, go!
Whoa, jeez! That was insane! I-I can’t believe you were excited for that!
I’m excited for this. Clearly no one’s escaped that place before.
Really learned your lesson about chasing this guy.
Hey, man, you can leave now.
That’s true, I can.
The weapon, Morty. He knows a thing that wipes someone out across all dimensions could wipe him out across all dimensions. Holy shit.
So that’s the guy?
Can’t help it, I’m a rascal. Morty, you can’t come! Evil Morty, stay out of my way! Gonna kill my nemesis! Rick out!
He’s a weird guy.
So Rick’s right? You’re afraid of the weapon?
What happens if Rick actually kills this guy? You ever think about that? Maybe he’ll kill himself next.
You’re an asshole.
Well, yeah. I’m not “Good” Morty. Come or don’t. I don’t care.
Got to be honest, I totally thought you were coming.
No, no, I- I was. I-I took a heroic step toward the portal, but then it closed.
Yeah, yeah, come on.
Pri-i-i-i-i-i-me! Aw, man.
A.I.: What’s up?
He built it again.
Well, yeah, he’s me with free time. Alright, I don’t see a place to park.
Catch your breath and then keep that heat off my back.
If you die, I’m taking your stuff.
Alright, cool, let’s do it.
What? No one can do undercuts but you?
You brought Morty?
I’m not worried about him.
Um, R-R-Rick? I-Is this…?
You guys don’t do anything small, huh? I’m surprised he hasn’t–
Rick Prime: Alright, here we go!
There it is.
Wow, the Wife Guy! Dead Wife Rick! I’ll tell you, this guy does not know when to quit.
I’m gonna fucking kill you.
You brought two Mortys with you? What? They’re your cheering section?
We brought ourselves, asshole.
Honestly, Wife Guy, I do miss when it was just us. The only two Ricks who actually invented portal travel. Anyone else teed up to arrive later? Like your car?
A.I.: I can see why you hate him.
And she sounds like our wife! Like in a fucked-up robot way but that’s definitely her voice. You sentimental little fella. Right, good instincts. I would’ve tried that, too.
I upgraded this thing, by the way. The new version can fire more than once. So now I can erase your whole family, one-by-one, until you finally learn your lesson. Which you won’t, so then I’ll kill you, too.
I’ll do that the old-fashioned way. Okay, family killin’ time! Let’s start small. Still family though.
Where am I? Two Ricks? Where’s my wife? I was just with my wife!
What the– Uncle Slo? Slo Mobius?
Yeah, this one hurts me, too.
[Slow motion] No-o-o-o-o-o!
Kind of the worst possible time to use his powers. Just made the death happen slower.
I’ll kill you!
So, uh, original grandson. This is super weird. Obviously we’re, uh, both trying to kill each other.
Aw, jeez. Nice to meet you, I guess.
So, do we– should I just get this over with or…? [Groans] Cool grandson.
[Groans] Why am I wearing an eye patch? And wait. Did we– did we switch shirts?
Yeah. Thanks for the assist.
Rick, we– we did it. Evil Morty got him! Rick? Rick!
[Groans] Alright, you two punks stay here.
[Groans] Okay, I think I’m getting the pic– Ow! Frying my backups, smart. So you’re like an evil Morty. A clever one. Ow! Alright, never been a sidekick guy, but I’m starting to see the value. You want a job? We could be like Batman and Robin.
Eh, I don’t need a Robin.
Okay, seriously, what is this? What, are you gonna “aw-jeez” me to death? Oh, you don’t want those schematics, buddy. Those are for grown-ups.
Oh, isn’t this great? Okay, alright. I get it.
[Groans, coughs] Oh. What? Oh, shit.
Mm-hmm. Knock yourself out.
Listen, Rick to Rick, he’s got the weapon plans. Buddy, nip this in the bud. He’s 14. What’s gonna happen the next time he gets mad at grandpa?
[Laughs] Let’s do this then. You’re welcome, by the way. I made you. I showed you infinity.
And what did you do with it? Hang out with my grandson, raise echoes of my daughter?
[Laughs] What’s your life without me?
Let’s find out.
[Grunting, coughing] Admit it. You would’ve been me.
I just walked into your garage before you walked into mine! But eventually you did! You lived in my house!
What– what are you doing?
Pretty cool visual. You’re missing it.
We don’t have to talk. This didn’t make us friends. There’s our guy.
Rick! Is it over? Is– is he…?
Not exactly an “alive” amount of blood. How’s it feel? Better? No? Exactly the same? Yeah, it always does. Hope you’re happy with your choice.
I’m gonna. Just don’t force me to improve on the design. I can end the Rick experiment any time I want.
Why threaten? Why not just do it?
Because using a weapon like this doesn’t get you left alone, Morty. Think I want a bunch of vengeful Summers coming after me? You are a little different though, Rick. Maybe I can use that someday. Seriously though. Fuck you. Don’t come after me. It won’t go well.
Are– are you okay?
Phew, man, when those drones uncloaked back there, I was like, “Oh, shit, this is– We’re fucked, we’re toast!

Mama, who’s that man in our picture?
Oh, honey, that’s… that’s… That’s your father. You– you don’t remember your father?
