Rick and Morty has been playing around with Rick's version of the multiverse through the first half of the sixth season so far, and the newest episode twisted that even more by revealing that Rick's portal gun could actually work much better than it already does! One of the big shake ups to the sixth season of the series was Rick being unable to use the portal gun, and even refusing to fix it over the course of the following episodes. But that all changed with the newest episode as he not only fixed it, but fans were teased about something even better.
Rick and Morty's Season 6 episode, "Juricksic Mort" had challenged Rick with god beings who were on an equal playing field with him for the first real time in the season (outside of Rick Prime) and they patronized him with the fact that his idea of multiverse travel was subpar. In fact, their version of it was far superior and they tried to help him with a much more advanced version of the portal gun that teases what Rick could really do with the kind of technology he currently fights back against.
The dinosaurs' version of the portal gun hilariously operates much better than Ricks as it not only uses a pink good compared to Rick's current green portal fluid, but the portals it makes were completely see through so they would know where they were going. It's a funny tease of what Rick could do if he didn't hold himself back from so much, and further examples of the kind of things he could if he didn't hold himself within the Central Finite Curve that had been established at the end of the fifth season.
Rick himself was insulted at the idea that someone would have a better version of his portal gun, and thus it "inspires" him to fix his own later by the episode's end. It may seem insignificant in the grand scope of the season, but this is also notably the episode that the series decided to take a break after. The final four episodes of Rick and Morty Season 6 will be returning this Fall, and Rick's portal gun will be a huge part of it.
But it could have been better! How do you feel about Rick and Morty activating the portal gun before the season went on break? Would you want to see the a better version of the portal gun in the future? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
