Rick and Morty confirm that the gun gate is still broken

Rick and Morty Season 6 spent its first few episodes exploring the new status quo that was set by the end of Season 5, and the episode definitely brought salt to the wound by confirming that Rick’s portal gun is still broken and so they can’t easily travel to new universes just yet! The end of Season 5 saw Evil Morty use all of the portal fluid within the castle to fuel his escape from the limited central curve, and he quipped that Rick wouldn’t be able to use the portals anymore as an unfortunate consequence of this plan.

He then followed up with this Season 6 premiere by seeing Rick fail to reset the portal fluid (thereby allowing them to access the portals again), and then it was revealed that as a result of this failure they would not be able to use the portals again this season. As much as fans wanted to fight this idea as complete confirmation that there would be no portals anymore, episode 3 of the season reveals during a painfully awkward scene that Rick has yet to fix the portal gun. So while fans may not like it, it still is.

Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 3, “Bethic Twinstinct” features a very awkward scene where Rick, Summer, and Morty overhear the very high physical tangle of Jerry and Albitin after the three of them come to a new understanding. It’s a very difficult moment to see them all, and during all of this Morty asks Rick to actually fix the gate gun and Rick refuses to do so. It’s another stamp on the fact that Rick will be stuck in this universe this season, and yet another thrill toward the greater scheme in play.

With Rick Prime trapped inside the world of Cronenberg he originally came from, if Rick resets the portal fluid and repairs the use of the same portal gun, it means that Rick Prime will be freed and sent into the universe again. This is the first time Rick has been able to keep at least some sort of tab on Rick who has been stalking him after all this time, and it’s clear in episode 3 that he’s in no hurry to change that despite the embarrassment he could have avoided by doing So.
