Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 3: Release Date, Recap, and Speculation

Morty’s consciousness gets trapped in a video game at a space arcade. The arcade is under attack by alien terrorists and Rick attempts to go into the game and convince Morty, who has been split into one five billion versions of himself in different NPC characters, to come back to the real world.

Meanwhile, Summer attempts to deal with the aliens by “Die Hard-ing” them.

1. Episode 3 Speculation

Summer manages to do a “Die Hard” after all, since she reads the book about the film that the alien leader was reading. While all of Morty’s consciousness has returned, with the exception of  the 8% that chose to stay back in the game, it is likely that something is wrong.
