I don't know what the fuck they were expecting. Rick and Morty doesn't have an overarching plot, it's a silly comedy show about a sociopathic drunk Doc Brown and a spineless Marty McFly. We've known Keith David was going to show up for months. The twist ending was p obviously going to happen too.Based on what I saw in the live chat and on reddit a lot of people were expecting him to show up. A lot of fans are calling this the worst episode of the series. That's how butthurt they are.
Why do you hate women?Another reason for me to dislike Dan Harmon
So, final thoughts for this season.
With (possible clone) Beth, it's about confronting your issues rather than running away from them. As a result of her finally standing up to Rick, knowing she could die, she's healthier now than she has been throughout this entire show. Hell, the Smiths all get along better now than when we first met them.
With Rick Vs. The President... I'm still trying to think of something that sounds smart. Best I can figure is it's about how Rick doesn't use his gifts to make the world a better place unless he can benefit from it. It's all a dick measuring contest with authority here, with Rick trying to put himself on top. Morty stops caring about the selfie, but Rick is the one who keeps demanding it to make authority submit to him. But between losing to Jerry and having to come crawling back to the President, everything Rick has done has come to nothing. Rick tries to make things better for himself but ends up being the joke at the end of the season.
