Within the storage, Morty begins to have an comprehensible freakout. Earlier Leon escapes by a portal that Rick describes as a gap within the fourth wall that results in the metanarrative layer. Yep, it is about to be that type of episode.
The two go seeking Earlier Leon within the metanarrative layer, which is depicted as a panorama with paths to totally different story archetypes and tropes. Rick remarks that the complete premise is “A bunch of groan-inducing wordplay for seven TV critics that won’t even enjoy it.” Initially — ouch? And second of all, sure, correct.
Rick and Morty discover Earlier Leon hiding — the place else — actually within the weeds. The branches even spell out, “Weeds.” However maintain on to your plumbuses, of us, as a result of we’re solely a layer deep on this matryoshka doll of meta. After chasing Earlier Leon right into a ravine, he begins praying (one other callback to “Never Ricking Morty,” by which prayer and non secular themes are used to stall out the narrative). And simply as in that episode, Jesus Christ arrives, with Story Lord returning as effectively.
Of course, being that everything of “Never Ricking Morty” befell inside a toy practice bought as a chunk of “Rick and Morty” merchandise, Rick has no recollection of both Jesus or Story Lord. Morty, nonetheless, has performed with the toy practice and acknowledges them as characters from it. Story Lord explains that he used the Bible story he was locked in on the finish of that episode to transcend actuality and enter the metanarrative layer. Jesus tears out Earlier Leon’s wings, then beats the crap out of Rick and Morty, ending with what Rick calls “the Bane,” as Jesus drop-slams Rick onto his knee, shattering Rick’s backbone.
