    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?

                                  Hey, MatPat. This is quite a out of place comment to leave under a Rick and Morty episode, but I don't know where else to put it. I just want to request a possible theory on the movie Away. It's quite interesting and about an hour long. Review it if you wish, I don't know if it's already available for you, but here is a trailer:

                                                  You just prove one of my theories, which is: Summer is more like Ric. I believe there may be a Citadel of Summers out there.

                                                    He's smart enough to make a decent antidepressant, but my guess is he's too afraid it will change who he is. Or it's just convenient to the plot that he can't cure his depression.

                                                        At of all honesty, this video is real deep... some may think it’s over analyzed, because it’s a cartoon.. but how it was explained throughout in full detail, only AWAKE grown-ups, will understand, and relate to it. Great video..
