On Rick and Morty tonight, Rick went through a TSA-like scanner and we learned that he has some pretty crazy cyber augmentation going on. Learn more about what he has in the story below.
Spoilers for Season 3 Episode 5.
Here’s a photo of his cybernetic implants:
It looks like Rick has some pretty serious cybernetic augments going on. We learned in this episode that at least one of them is attached to his hand and is basically just a mini plunger. In case you missed it, you could see the arm implant in the background of his garage in last week’s episode.
And we also learned last week in Vindicators that Rick’s skin is laced with a nanofiber defense mesh.
It doesn’t look like Rick is a complete cyborg, but he does have cyborg implants. And in case you weren’t listening closely, you might have incorrectly thought that the synaptic dampener turned off his implants, leaving him docile and dumb-ish. But that’s actually not what happened. They left his cybernetic implants alone. The synaptic dampener just blocked his violent tendencies and controversial thoughts for a short period of time.
It’s also helpful to remember that Rick isn’t technically in the same body that C-137 Rick had from the beginning of the series. He switched bodies multiple times in Episode 1 of Season 3. So if you don’t remember him having quite so many implants in previous seasons, that’s why. These are the implants in Rick’s new body.
Did you notice anything else about Rick’s cybernetic implants? Let us know in the comments so we can talk about it.
