    Season 4 of Rick and Morty is giving us a brand new, deeper look into the mind of our favorite genius, Rick Sanchez. Throughout the run of the show, people have speculated about what's going on with the smartest man in the universe. Today, I have gathered all the data I need to really dissect his brain. I think we may all have judged Rick a little too fast... or did we?

              Low key I’ll be kinda pissed if they ever confirm he likes summer more.😂 id take Rick and Morty over Rick and summer any day. Summers cameos ect... are fun and like in Mortys mind blowers it was a relief to see her instead of them doing an entire amnesia episode. But after a few episodes I just straight up wouldn’t want to listen to her voice anymore.

                          Diane & Beth were clones and thats why he left them. Not to feel at fault about Diane's death.

                            I think Rick tried to do this with morty but morty was too self centered to realize what was going on

                                    Beth said that Rick left her mother which kinda indicates that Rick didn’t push her away but abandoned her ... maybe it was for her safety kinda because he’s a criminal ... he abandoned Beth to and morty and he cries when he remembered the good old days where he wasn’t on the run I hope I didn’t ruin it for the developers

                                        This video destroyed by the fact this is not Rick's original family. His past is not their past. Until the point where he and Morty turned up in this particular reality. Plus nothing that happens in Narnia bears any relationship to my life, but I can imagine a similar world because I read a book.

                                              As Someone With Bipolar Depression Aka Manic Depression I Agree With This. Being Younger Before I Started Really Taking Steps To Control My Depression, Lashing Out Was My Main Thing. Family, Friends, Or Strangers Who Tried To Be Kind. Everyone Got The Flames. I Was Just Mean. Hence How I Got The Name Dark Phoenix From People Who SOMEHOW, Were Able To Handle Befriending The Monster That Was Me. LOLZ!! I Think Im Much Kinder Now....Im Kinda Like Simple Rick More So Than C137 Rick Now. So Yeah, Depression Is 100% The Most Likely To Be Ricks Problem And It Totally Makes Since. Go On The Theory That His Supposedly Made Up Version Of His Vision Of His Wife And Beth Dieing Was Actually True. Account For The Idea That He Is NOT The Beth We Knows Father But Is Instead Filling In Because He Knows That Particular Rick Is Dead. That Explains Alot As Well Because He Could Of Let Her Mom, Died And Was Dead For Years Before C137 Rick Popped In And Took His place. But Yeah....I Think From The Start I Saw Myself In Rick. So Its Pretty Cool To See Just How Deep His Character Development Is.

                                                        In the battle with the President he has a disintegrating gun (really scary) yet relies on dropping snakes as a deterrent. Considering his body has multiple A.I. defenses neither is really needed, it just adds to the chaotic fun.

I relate to Rick on so many levels and I genuinely feel and understand what's he's going and how he acts. Most don't see how much he is hurting, that's the problem with high-functioning depression. I'm 18 and have had depression most of my life however, my parents didn't know anything was wrong till a couple years ago.

A lot of people, especially gifted kids even when they grow up.. ESPECIALLY when they grow up, are victim of this, and I'm pretty sure the creators of that show know about this too cause they definitely make it clear Rick cannot be happy because he's aware of how things work and understands that happiness is not something you can achieve by thinking or solving a problem.
