“Mort Dinner Rick Andre” is the title of the episode that kicks off with the fifth season of Rick and morty. It introduces us to the eccentric scientist organizing dinner for his ocean-dwelling nemesis, while his grandson gets the wine. Mr. Nimbus, the character in question, is also called The King of the Ocean (and to tell the truth, he looks like a parody of Aquaman and Namor, the aquatic characters of DC and Marvel, respectively) and for a moment of the chapter he invites Jerry to Beth to have a threesome, something that captures and interests parents.
Thanks to this event we discovered that Jerry really belongs to the LGBT community as suspected since the second season, specifically in the chapter “Total Rickall”, when the Smith home is closed after a dangerous group of parasite aliens threaten take over the world by multiplying through flashbacks. Jerry maintains an affair with Sleepy Gary, however, by the end of the chapter he is killed along with the rest of his invading species, which leaves Jerry’s heart broken. Since then, fans have wondered if Morty’s father was bisexual, now we know that he was thanks to his interest in Mr. Nimbus.

Once again it is confirmed that another character in the series is LGBT. We know that Rick Sánchez is thanks to different events, for example, the one observed in the chapter “Auto Erotic Assimilation”, when Rick, Morty and Summer meet an ex-lover of Rick who turns out to be a hive-minded alien named Unity; the protagonist does not think twice when having sex with male and female beings scattered all over the planet, confirming the character’s pansexuality. The separation at the end of the episode affects him badly.
LGBT representation in film and television has taken on a very important role. For years the queer experience was ignored in fiction, however, the new century has brought great and valuable changes, now the community is seen on the screen more and more represented and it is the ideal path that entertainment should follow. Will we see further discoveries in the future between Rick and morty? It is clear that the series returns to give us greater adventures and satisfaction with the family. A really exciting summer awaits the fans.
