What Rick’s Cybernetic Enhancements Mean for RICK AND MORTY

Last weekend, Rick and Morty took a slight detour when Rick Sanchez took his soon to be ex-son-in-law, Jerry Smith, on an impromptu pity adventure that almost got them both killed. But before they shared an epoch of consciousness and some awkward naked wrestling, Jerry discovered something new about Rick: he’s gone full cyborg! Today’s Nerdist News is looking into Rick’s “Class C or above cybernetic augmentations” and how they may shape the future of the series!

Join the galaxy’s most wanted host, Jessica Chobot, as she breaks down the details from Rick’s full body scan. And as you can see in the gif posted below, Rick’s had a lot of work done. The bones in his arms and legs appear to have been replaced, at least one of his major organs has been upgraded, his left eye has been augmented, and there’s an implant in his brain!

How did this happen? It’s possible that Rick made these additions off-camera this season after he broke out of the Federation prison. But the theory that we’re going with is that Rick inherited these implants when he jumped into several different bodies during the third season premiere. Rick C-137 may be the Rickiest of all of the Ricks, but he doesn’t have his original body anymore.

Within this episode, we also saw that Rick has an arm gun built into his body, which could potentially be useful for future engagement with his countless enemies across the universe. That’s where the potential problem arises. Have Rick’s new upgrades made him too powerful? Is that how he was able to defeat Worldender and his followers while on a black out bender? We’re very curious to see if Rick’s cyber-enhancements will continue to be explored this season, and whether the show’s creative team decides to take them away from him before the finale.

What do you think about Cyber Rick? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
