Well, it’s official. We no longer know which dimension, timeline, or reality our (anti)heroes reside in. “Morty’s Mind Blowers” comes fresh off the heels of last weeks “The Ricklantis Mixup” aka “Tales from the Citadel”, but unfortunately is nowhere near as good. For the past two seasons, there has been an “Interdimensional Cable” episode where viewers get to see what plays on television in every perceivable dimension and planet in Rick and Morty. In this episode, however, Rick decides to show Morty all of the memories that he begged Rick to erase from his mind. This gives viewers another chance to see all of the adventures that happen off-screen, just like with last weeks trip to Atlantis. During these adventures, we get to see exactly how horrible life can get for poor Morty. As I stated before, considering that we no longer know which dimension our main characters reside in, it’s hard to pinpoint when most of these adventures took place. During one of the forgotten adventures, we see that Morty used technology from Rick to hear animals speaking. He soon finds out that squirrels are a part of a shadow organization that can topple governments. After some squirrels become suspicious of Morty, Rick tells him to pack his bags as they have to switch dimensions again. During this exchange, Rick also alludes to them having done this more than a couple times. That being said we can most likely assume that they all take place after “Rick Potion #9” since Morty knows about this possibility. I got a few laughs out of the other memories and spotted some nice easter eggs, but they weren’t spectacular. Everything wrapped up pretty nicely in the end though, which I wasn’t expecting. Again we witness exactly how smart Rick is because he prepared for the many outcomes to him showing Morty his deleted memories. Leading viewers to believe that even this type of situation has happened before and Rick wiped Morty’s mind of it. I give “Morty’s Mind Blowers” an Average 3/5. Not the best this season has had to offer, but a nice filler episode to say the least. It is also interesting seeing that Rick has erased memories for Jerry as well. Possibly he has done this with his other relatives in this current dimension.
