Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 10: Finally, the holiday-themed episode we’ve all been waiting for is coming to Rick and Morty. That’s some encouraging news. Unfortunately, this episode will conclude Season 2 of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s sci-fi comedy.
Both “Anatomy Park” and “Rattlestar Ricklactica” featured Christmas-themed episodes of Rick and Morty. In contrast to the usual fare of the series, “Ricktional Mortpoon’s Rickmas Mortcation” appears to be a genuine holiday special. Have you been wondering how you can catch it? Here’s where you can go to view Episode 10 of Season 6 of Rick and Morty without having to pay anything.

Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 10 Storyline
Nobody will believe me, but I had one more paragraph at the conclusion of my review last week in which I fretted that this week’s finale would disclose that Rick had been good to Morty and make me appear like an idiot. Unfortunately, I changed that paragraph to make my review “read better,” which cost me a lot of respect from Rick and Morty fans! My worst day! “Ricktional Mortpoon’s Rickmas Mortcation” is a great season finale, though!
In fairness to me, the reveal that Rick has been uncharacteristically 22% nicer because he replaced himself with a robot that’s programmed to be 22% nicer isn’t entirely moot because, as the robot says, Rick built him to make Morty happier, so anything the robot does is technically something Rick has done. Rick made the robot because Morty called him uninteresting in the previous episode, which hurt him. Rick cares about his grandson and wants his family to like him more. He solved the problem scientifically and dysfunctionally. Rick has evolved in a traditional way.
Learning that this gentler Rick is a robot while the real Rick is locked in his lab’s basement creates some wonderful storylines. As we follow Robot Rick, Real Rick, and the President as they cross paths, the plot builds organically to a satisfying, Star Wars-inspired showdown. Robot Rick’s arc is very brilliant as he swings from following his programming to be friendlier to his family and not admitting he’s a robot to feeling guilty for fooling them and wanting to admit he’s a robot to wanting to die to escape his family’s disappointment.
Keith David sounds great as the President, but his recurring role has been mixed (I was no big fan of that Thanksgiving nonsense). In this episode, he’s his best as an angry Gen Xer Star Wars fan who hates how the franchise has been debased. It’s a hilarious character trait and impressive how much of the plot is based on his Star Wars love. This is why this episode is so good.
Though it’s Rick and Morty’s usual sci-fi lunacy about robots, underground labs, and outer space, it’s constructed on a sitcom bedrock of running gags (e.g., lightsabers being dropped vertically), family ties, and characters’ foolish, petty, emotional demands, making it surprisingly grounded. (The only stretch is when Morty shoots to kill the President, but that’s a nitpick.)
As season six continued to add (mainly wonderful) one-off adventures, it became impossible to see how they would end the arc with new nemesis Rick Prime (aka Weird Rick), and they didn’t even attempt. Instead, “Ricktional Mortpoon’s Rickmas Mortcation” closes with a tee-up that parodies the “Rick and Morty forever, 100 years” spiel for season seven’s hunt for Rick’s enemy. I’m excited and satisfied with this season. Season six was less cynical, funnier, and character-driven than the previous season. It has more good episodes than poor and a great season finale.
