‘Rick and Morty Season 4‘ is an adult animated series that has appealed to the millennial mindset perfectly with its cynical tone, which tends to get quite dark at times. Despite being a comedy series, the show routinely ventures into some emotionally hard-hitting territory. Perhaps, that is the form of a closer-to-human-reality yet intergalactically unfamiliar premise that has helped the Adult Swim series find tons of popularity.
Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, the series went on a rather long gap after the third season, thanks to the uncertainty of its future. However, once the series returned for its fourth installment, fans found themselves to be delighted on a weekly basis once again, although during the mid-season break. Unfortunately, Rick and Morty Season 4 has come to a close too, and viewers find themselves in the frustrating position of waiting for the next season yet again.
What Happens Towards the End?
However, the fourth season finale turns out to be a joyride: presenting viewers with an extremely entertaining episode, while developing the character of Beth engagingly. The ending, on the other hand, leaves one feeling almost depressed, until a hilarious post-credits scene saves the day. Hence, it is natural for viewers to wonder what the ending signifies.
Towards the end of Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 10, Rick finds himself to be depressed. He realizes that he is a bad father, and that makes him rather upset. He attempts to switch Phoenix Person on, but he is too angry and lashes out at Rick. At the end of the episode, Rick is depicted to be sulking in the garage alone.
Post-credits scene: Jerry decides to stop using the invisibility belt and throws it in the trash can. However, when the garbage truck picks up the trash, it (the garbage truck) becomes invisible. Then, Jerry and the invisible garbage truck go on various adventures until the truck runs out of gas, and Jerry can’t find the tank.
Rick and Morty Season 4 Ending, Explained:
A few watchers would have thought about what the end of ‘Rick and Morty Season 4‘ implies. All things considered, it re-attests the hero’s emotional wellness status. Rick is as yet portrayed to be discouraged. It appears to be impossible that he would escape misery soon.
His depression is portrayed to be an outcome of loneliness and regret over his past choices and self. He is demonstrated to be tragic a few times on the show, regularly leaving watchers feeling disheartened as well. One such model shows up in the third episode of the subsequent season, ‘Auto Erotic Assimilation,’ when he attempts to commit suicide.
In the season 4 finale, Rick is portrayed to be furious about the past. He understands that he has been a terrible dad. Beth had requested that he pick whether he needs her to remain with him and be a piece of his life or leave.
In any case, Rick couldn’t pick, and subsequently, he went for an alternative where he could do both. He cloned Beth so one Beth could remain with him while another could leave. While that may appear to be a mutually advantageous arrangement, it is a serious self-centered one.
First and foremost, Rick isn’t actually permitting Beth to do what she needs. He is controlling her. He isn’t allowing her completely to focus on one choice. Rick isn’t letting her carry on with her life completely (as herself not as a piece of the team including a clone) by leaving on the grounds that a piece of him needs his little girl to be a piece of his life.
Additionally, he doesn’t show the mental courage and responsibility of telling his own little girl that he needs her to remain. He doesn’t commit to himself to remain consistent with that responsibility from his side. All things considered, he clones Beth so he can have one foot out of the gate consistently without feeling regretful about it.
What happened in Season 3
This uncertainty experiences caused difficulties for Beth previously. In the third season finale, she is seen being jumpy, puzzling over whether she is a clone. In the Rick and Morty Season 4 finale as well, Rick doesn’t know which Beth is the clone and which one is genuine. Henceforth, neither one nor the other Beths get the appropriate response, and the two of them are forced to try for some degree of adjustment with not realizing that answer.
In conclusion, Rick’s depression is likewise an outcome of his loneliness. In the last episode, Morty is appeared to have associated with Summer more. He had been Rick’s latest, stable buddy. Nonetheless, when Rick finds out if he and Summer need to know who their genuine mother is by taking a look at the memory vial, neither of them is interested.
Then, at that point, he attempts to turn on Phoenix Person, in order to revive his relationship. Nonetheless, Phoenix Person is too irritated to even think about doing as such. Consequently, that fills in as another sign of Rick winding up to be abandoned in his difficult age.
Rick and Morty Season 4 Post Credits Scene
Fortunately, that isn’t the place where the Rick and Morty Season 4 closes. There is an amusing post-credits scene with Jerry. Jerry is demonstrated to be going on experiences with the invisible dump truck. Notwithstanding, he needs to stop when the truck runs running on empty.
As it is invisible, Jerry can’t discover the fuel tank to refuel it. Besides, there is no reason for attempting to discover the belt too on the grounds that it is in the trash compartment. Discovering it in a load of invisible waste would be almost impossible.
