    Theory: Evil Morty is actually the Morty of the Evil Rick that killed C137's family. If so it's probably gonna end up in one of them getting betrayed by the other. More than likely Evil Rick killing Evil Morty.

    I watched enough Sci-Fi Fiction to instantly realize that the Bomb wasn't planted by any other Rick, but Rick C-137 himself from the future. He probably murdered his own family in order to motivate himself into becoming what he is now. He is probably the ONLY Rick who is stuck in an infinite time anomaly, forever doing what he hates most and hating himself for it.

    dead wife was supposed to be a fake origin story to deceive the galactic empire. Also, this story does not explain why Rick is Holding baby Morty in a picture at Bird person's house. Also in that story Beth dies, and she is not dead. This is just a middle finger to fans stating "dont bother us with origin stories and stuff"

    I cant stop thinking about how he cried back in Season 1 when they were showing baby Morty...he literally never saw Morty grow up. He's not like the other Ricks. I believe thats why Evil Morty spared them. Meanwhile Season 6 is gonna take 2 years to return lol

    I think the other rick was jealous and also angry at c137 rick. While all the other ricks were more than happy to leave their wife and child behind c137 was different. He cherished Beth. And cherished his wife just as much. I think that made the rick jealous angry and in the end envy him. Which led to his decision to kill them

    Being how this is Rick and Morty I wouldn't be surprised if they do another "Gotcha!" Moment And our Rick we follow during the show is the Rick that killed that Ricks family and hes just carrying that ricks Mind Spike as a failsafe alibi. Why? I don't know. But I totally feel like that's possible.

    So did Rick have another Beth with another Diane and then abandon them, or is Beth the daughter of another Rick that never came back and he took their place? This scene makes it seem like the second one, but Rick and Beth have a conversation in season 3 about when she was a kid. Btw I know the “real” Beth is still in Cronenburg world

      @Just vibing through life not nitpicking just curious. Never said it was a problem that we don’t know it’s just fun to conjecture. I assumed Beth required Froopyland and wanted all that stuff because she was raised by an already jaded Rick.

      @James Humber are you nitpicking because they didnt show every single detail of rick and beths backstory? They didnt show beths behavior in that flashback, thats why you cant see him building thee stuff for her.

      @Just vibing through life yeah but their death is what caused Rick to become the way he is. In the flashback before they die he seems like a normal decent person. He declines the other Rick’s offer to have infinite power because he’d rather have a simple life with his family. I don’t see how his Beth would be a troublesome child that would require building Froopyland, and I don’t see him making all those fucked up toys for her. And Rick talks about that story as if the Beth he’s talking to is the one he made all of it for.

I know shes a clone or a Beth from an alternate universe , but if Rick abandoned her wheres the logic?

      But then risk by default wouldn’t be who he is so it stands to reason in the central finite curve she is dead because her being alive means Rick won’t push himself into depression or try to prove he is better then everyone thus his whole character would be different he be like better version of positive Rick or simple Rick he no longer be the riskiest Rick Which is the whole point of the show, that he is incapable of saving his original family leading him down towards nihilism and being care free(trying to prove he is the best despite not getting what he cares about the most) If his family was alive he be optimistic and care all the time like simple Rick positive Rick but completely positive as in no definition of positive or negative getting in the way, he probably be like an ordinary smart person like say peter Parker in which he has the potential to be an intellectual giant but doesn’t focus all his time and energy into his intellect hence the point of all ricks in the center finite curve either losing their original family unable to be with their wife or daughter even when she is growing up(meaning even if he tried to go to a different universe where they are alive other ricks will come in and kill them since that’s how the curve is maintained) can’t be the father or husband he wants to be, thus when he goes to a deviant family the only reason they are even alive and not killed by other ricks is because they are already F up to the point he finds it unacceptable like Jerry whcih other ricks pushed to meet Beth and his grandkids having their genes, even morty was created to be mediocre because risks needed him, so even if OG Rick still cares the issue is he had no say in the matter as other risk took over every family and that’s what piss him off that not matter where he goes nothing changes. as someone says it takes one bad day to break a man or drive him insane but by extension pushes them to their limits Ps the biggest problem is if Rick wanted to be with his family the whole time he could have by leaving the central finite curve why he doesn’t is also clear otherwise we wouldn’t have this show so why he doesn’t is still unknown, and the stupid part is in an infinite multiverse there is no way Rick can catch the Rick taht killed his family with 0 knowledge on who he is and even if he did find out killing him doesn’t solve anything because in another universe he kills you there is literally no point to killing him beyond asking why and Rick already knows why so their is no point.
