Let's talk about the new episode of "rick and morty"

I have seen several opinions about the episode and how they talk about Toxic rick worries more about morty than the healthy rick

First, healthy rick loves morty, they said it repeatedly, Healthy rick can’t lie; He tells morty that despite how he behaves and treats him he really loves him and is proud of him

On the other side toxic rick insults him and makes him feel like shit

When healthy rick said that his irrational attachment was not with him, we could notice that Rick actually feels those feelings as toxic which made many think that healthy rick doesn’t really love and cares about anyone

But … what if Rick doesn’t consider the affection towards other people completely toxic? Rick is a person who normally thinks only of himself, never does anything for others and humiliates them, so that feelings of empathy would be toxic to a person like him

Rick does not consider affection to others as toxic, what he regards as toxic is affection to the degree of sacrificing your life for others.

That’s why he slaps morty, not to see if it affects him to see morty hurt, but if he cares to hurt him to prove a point

If healthy rick was in a situation where killing morty would save the planet he would, not because he didn’t worry or love morty, but it would be the most rational and logical thing, he would sacrifice morty for a greater good

While toxic rick would not sacrifice morty and search in all possible dimensions or even sacrifice his life to save him

Rick loves Morty there is no doubt about that, but it seems toxic to him to love him to the point of sacrificing himself for him
