Rick And Morty – Episode 28 “The Ricklantis Mixup”

Ep #: 28
Air date: Sept. 10th, 2017
Synopsis: There are many Ricks and Mortys in the multiverse. These are their stories.

Morty’s actually excited for an adventure with Rick because they’re going to the fabled Lost City of Atlantis! Just as they’re done packing, another Rick and Morty warps into their verse, seeking out other versions of themselves and asking their contribution for the redevelopment of the Citadel of Ricks. Big changes are coming now that the council is dead, but this does nothing to deter our Rick. Knowing a lost cause when they see one, the other Rick and Morty departs, freeing up our Rick and Morty to head to Atlantis.

But that’s another story.

The episode cuts to the Citadel, currently under major renovation. Instead of the annual improv multiverse channel hopping of the previous two seasons, “The Ricklantis Mixup” is a series of vignettes centering on a few Ricks and Mortys that live in the Citadel. The tales intermingle between scenes, but for the sake of clarity, this recap will tackle each story one segment at a time.

Synopsis: Instead of an Interdimensional Cable special, we get an episode about Rick and Morty erasing their painful, painful memories.

Rick and Morty are on the run from an otherworldly being (who looks like the Neil Gaiman character, Dream) because they stole his Truth Tortoise. The animal is said to embed anyone who looks into its eyes with all the knowledge in existence. Morty’s been staring at the creature, so he’s understandably freaked out at a universe’s worth of knowledge.

The duo make it out safe, but Morty cannot handle the vast weight on his shoulders and wished he could remove everything that has happened so far. As ever, Rick has a nasty solution down in his lab: a helmet that can remove any memory the person wants. With vials of memories lined up on every available space on the wall, it becomes frighteningly clear that this is not an isolated request.
