Once Rick and Morty season 6 arrives, however, what can we expect to see in it? Usually, this isn’t that applicable of a question. The answer is just “well, whatever standalone wacky sci-fi adventures the writers want us to see.” Based on the season 5 finale though, season 6 might throw us a bit of a curveball.
Rick and Morty season 5 concludes with some canon-shattering revelations. The first is the complete version of Rick Sanchez’s origin story – that the loss of his original Diane and Beth sent him on this self-indulgent journey of universe-hopping sci-fi. Then there’s the universe, itself. Simply put: we haven’t seen all of it.
As revealed by Evil Morty, the Ricks of the Citadel of Ricks used a concept known as the “Central Finite Curve” to separate the universes in which Ricks were the smartest entities from all the other infinite universes. At episode’s end, Evil Morty uses the information gleaned from Rick’s brain to exit the Central Finite Curve and enter into the real multiverse of infinite possibilities.
Now, this doesn’t all mean that Rick and Morty season 6 will be a Loki-like serialized tale through the Time Variance Authority. The show will still likely be a series of episodic sci-fi adventures featuring Rick and Morty. But it does open up the storytelling quite a bit more. Even if Evil Morty doesn’t come back (though he’s bound to eventually), the consequences of shattering the Curve are sure to be felt.
We’ve seen a lot of truly wild universes on Rick and Morty through five seasons. Somehow that’s only been the tip of the iceberg. There are universes out there in which Mortys reign supreme, or even Beths, Jerrys, or Summers. Imagine what wild, unconquered worlds can still be out there where there’s not a Rick keeping them all in line.
