It's time to watch Rick and Morty season 6 episode 2 online, where we don't know which Rick Sanchez will we get. Will we get more of our Rick? Rick C-137? Or will we also see more of Rick Prime, who proved himself to be just as evil as you would have wanted.

Rick and Morty season 6 episode 2 time and channel

Rick and Morty season 6 episode 2 "Rick: A Mort Well Lived" airs today (Sunday, Sept. 11) at 11 p.m. ET.
It's on Cartoon Network, during the AdultSwim block.

Everything kicked off with our Rick and Morty floating in space, following Evil Morty's decision to choose violence, breaking the finite curve and we saw all those Mortys devour each other. Our protagonists were saved by Space Beth, one of the actually capable people in this world — because Rick isn't Tony Stark, no matter how many Avengers: Endgame jokes he can make. 

Then, everyone was pulled back to their home universes because Rick got something wrong (remember, he won't be the smartest person anywhere anymore). He then chased Weird Rick/Rick Prime around, because that bastard killed his original wife and daughter. Oh, and that Rick? He's our Morty's actual grandfather.

Speaking of family, Summer now has Wolverine claws, seems to be taking after Space Beth, as someone interested in getting things done. Meanwhile, we met Mr Frundles who we hope to never be in a room with again. 

Then, at the very end, Rick Prime killed a Jerry in the Cronenberg dimension, reminding us all who the real villain of this story is. As for the meta title joke of the week? "Rick: A Mort Well Lived" isn't a movie joke, but an inside joke reference to "Roy: A Life Well Lived" the game from season 2 episode 2, "Mortynight Run."

In this new episode, though, it's up to Summer to save the day. To do this, she's going to have to — as Rick said in the season 6 trailer — "do a Die Hard." Sadly, she's never seen the movie.

So, here's everything you need to know to watch Rick and Morty season 6 episode 2 online, and check out this trailer for the new episode:
