The Hidden
Within Rick And
Morty Season 6
Episode 2
THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR "Rick and Morty" Season 6, episode 2.


After a canon-heavy premiere, Season 6 of "Rick and Morty" is back to business as usual with Episode 2, a clever spoof of "Die Hard" that unfolds as alien terrorists led by Peter Dinklage, take over a space arcade. Despite the fact Summer has never seen "Die Hard," she proves herself a worthy Bruce Willis analog as she sneaks through the arcade, dusting Dinklage's men.
Along the way, she learns that there's a lot more to "Die Hard" than anybody knows. Partway through "Rick: A Mort Well Lived," Peter Dinklage's alien terrorist reveals to Summer that every culture throughout the galaxy eventually invents the story of "Die Hard," but has different titles for it, like “Tower Man,” or “Foolish to Imagine You'd Be Able to Kill.”
Rick, who's been stuck inside a video game for the entire episode, takes out the other terrorists, and upon seeing him, Dinklage's character remarks with a tone of wonder, "Doctor Ozalesium?" This exchange unveils the hidden conspiracy that Rick has done a "Die Hard" prior to this, and had been great enough at it to deserve this tone of reverence with which the terrorist leader addresses him.
