I’m losing my mind at how Rick and Morty keeps surpassing its self. Like tonight’s episode with the Rick Citadel part 2 showcased their ability to juggle plot elements and emotional beats that few other shows can do. You can also see Dan Harmon’s influence as seen on community where there are so many trope shout outs and references that the show has an almost metalayer to it.
Like the leaf motif at the end felt good because there was that lampshade about sinister music, followed by the start of the very recognizable music theme to anyone who remembered previous episodes, before they finally pan out.
Robb you idiot, you keep this up and you are going to be killed.
Tywin’s pause as he enters the throne room and seeing the fires back - so brilliant. The moment where he wonders whether his grandson is repeating history. It said so much and was only a single moment.
