One of the most evocative moments in all of Rick and Morty deals with the very serious subject of substance abuse and its relationship with suicide. Somehow, Season 2, Episode 3 navigates these delicate topics in a neat 23 minutes of hilarious animated sci-fi featuring guest stars like Christina Hendricks and Patton Oswalt — it also led to one of the darkest Rick and Morty fan theories of all time. This episode punched a hole straight through my chest. Other fans have called it the most touching scene in television history.
'Rick and Morty' fans will never forget Season 2's darkest moment

To the trio's shock, the hive mind apparently knows Rick, who awkwardly admits that he and the hive mind, named Unity, used to "date. Back on the planet Unity overtook, Unity explains how it was able to take over the entire population, unifying the world and improving the quality of the inhabitants' life, at the cost of their free will and individuality.

While Rick And Morty is primarily a comedy series, it features surprisingly deep characterization too. Rather than the character's being one-note stereotypes, the flaws and traumas of every member of the family has been explored throughout the series.
