Rick and Morty has now crossed the halfway point of the sixth season, and the newest episode of the series has revealed more of Rick's new weaponry moving forward! Rick has always been prepared for pretty much any situation as it's been revealed in the past that he had fashioned his body with lots of technological upgrades that make him more formidable than expected. But it seems like that now he's much more vulnerable than he ever has been in lots of ways, Rick has since upgraded the amount of tech fans can see in action in his body.
"Final DeSmithation" saw Rick getting into his first real fights of the season overall. While the Season 6 premiere did tease some of the new weapons and technology he had implanted in his body in the brief time he was chasing down Rick Prime, Episode 5 of the season saw him taking on lots of opponents who were beefed up with new abilities granted by powerful fortune cookies (and a meth ring before that). All the while, Rick is showing off all of the weapons he has packed into himself.
For fans wanting to see more of the invincible Rick that he was like in the earlier seasons, "Final DeSmithation" is a return to form in a lot of ways. Not only does he easily cut down a gang cooking up meth in a Panda Express, but he and Jerry sneak through the fortress like Fortune 500 company with ease as well. For a small list of things he shows off, there's a robotic eye that stretches out and can be used like a periscope, a hand with multiple screwdrivers, arms and legs that extend (even to the fingers and toes) and that's just scratching the surface.
With Rick's "suit beyond suits" that he unleashes in the episode, Rick has a pair of sunglasses that can quickly scan the area and figures out the source of the fortune cookies' powers. He's got shoes that easily rocket him around, and he even had a quick device in his arm that was able to quickly etch out a new fortune for Jerry to save him. It's an episode where Rick was able to do whatever he wanted (as he was also basically immortal) and goes to show that he likely won't be tripped up in the same way he has been in the past.
That is, unless it's funnier that way. How do you feel about all of Rick's new upgrades and weaponry? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments! You can even reach out to me directly about all things animated and other cool stuff @Valdezology on Twitter!
