There is no show quite like ‘Rick and Morty’. Even if you love adult animated shows and have seen your fair share, this series takes the cake, not just in terms of the premises offered, but the quirky storylines it keeps delivering all the time. Over the seasons, ‘Rick and Morty’ has turned our attention to issues of existential dread, nihilism, and the fact that cosmic powers might not exist, meaning that we are truly alone in the universe, without guidance.
These burdens cannot often be handled by human minds, and as a result, we see the family at the center reacting in their own ways. Rick goes off on his adventures and does not hold societal beliefs or standards in any high regard. On the other hand, Morty, his grandson, is considered to be the moral compass who accompanies him on the adventures. Rick’s daughter and son-in-law are normal people, trying to make their marriage work. The wife has her own sense of importance while the simplistic husband seems to resent Rick’s influence on the family. Morty’s sister is a typical teenager, trying to find her place among her friends. The latest season is already off to a strong start, tackling the characters’ psyches while showing crazy adventures.

Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 3 Recap:
Episode 3 of ‘Rick and Morty’ starts with the two going on an adventure looking for a crystal skull. However, their adventures are halted all of a sudden when the quest yields nothing but a red origami. It is the calling card of a heist expert, Miles Knightly. Rick is visibly upset at the adventure being ruined and decides to confront Miles at a convention held for heist artists. As a result, he has to assemble his own crew, which has some pretty colorful characters.
Morty is extremely excited at the prospect since he is working on his own heist script where the protagonists evade attention by pretending to be dead and made of cake. At the convention, Rick and Miles quickly escalate the situation to what seems to be a heist-off. The two plan to compete at stealing the skull. Up until this point, it seems quite like the plot of ‘Ocean’s 12’. In fact, Miles even has the twist of having stolen the skull beforehand, meaning Rick cannot win a heist that has already taken place. However, George Clooney‘s tactics have nothing on Rick, who had anticipated the double-cross.
He seems to have built a robot that is an expert at heists. Miles is not only defeated but at Rick’s command, the robot takes him apart, killing him. However, if you thought this would end the troubles, you could not be more wrong. The robot plans to pull off a heist on the entire universe, and it is up to Rick and a new crew to stop him.
The confrontations go on for quite some time, but it appears that Rick has another trick up his sleeve. The robot has been designed to self-implode after a certain time, which is exactly what happens. As for Morty, he walks away with the most experience and a stunning tale to tell. In fact, Netflix even approaches Morty for his script, but he has lost interest in heist movies and walks out midway.
