What happened in Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 7?
In the previous episode of Rick and Morty, “Full Meta Jackrick,” things couldn’t get more meta. The titular duo faced off with meta-narrative creatures and the literal “fourth wall.” The episode begins with Rick and Morty inside a “previously on...” montage about what took place earlier in this season, which isn’t too surprising, but things get weird when events that never happened start to come up, such as the duo solving a murder with Tony Hawk. This is exactly what tips off Rick that something is up, and he begins to take control of the narrative. They find the culprit, a creature named Previous Leon, who has trapped them inside this TV trope. Trying to wrestle the creature down, they end up flying through the Season 6 opening title sequence, but Previous Leon escapes through a hole in the “fourth wall.”
When they finally find Previous Leon again in a place called the “meta layer,” Rick and Morty are faced with a moral dilemma about murdering the creature, and soon Jesus (voiced by Christopher Meloni) shows up to protect Previous Leon, as well as beat up Rick and Morty. It’s then revealed that the mastermind behind all of this is Story Lord (voiced by Paul Giamatti), a villain fans might recognize from Season 4. Story Lord escapes to reality, and Previous Leon ends up saving Rick and Morty from Jesus.
In order to get out of the “meta layer,” Rick and Morty break into the headquarters of the Self Referential Six, a group of meta superheroes, with names such as Miss Lead, Connie TinuityError, and Flash Back. While facing off against the superheroes, Rick and Morty end up in the cell of Brett Caan, whose power is to retcon reality. Rick agrees to release Rhett Caan (he changes his name) as he retcons their journey, making it so that Rick and Morty never end up in the “meta layer.” Some chaos later, Rick and Morty are rescued by dead writer Joseph Campbell. Rick then builds a device with the help of Previous Leon that will let them return home.
Meanwhile, in reality, Story Lord chases down the writer who created him, to see what he should do next, but he finds out his next mission is only to find motivation, which ends up being a machine that siphons motivation from the world. Rick and Morty arrive back to reality to stop him and tell the writer to murder his own character amid some struggle. Rick then lights the motivation-draining device on fire and things are back to normal.
