What a smart and fun episode. “Auto Erotic Assimilation” put all its characters in the right spots to create a hilarious episode that will go down as a classic.

Putting Summer into the main adventure was a huge plus. When she, Rick, and Morty encounter Unity, a life form that takes over and controls populations that also happens to be Rick’s ex, they find a peaceful planet without political or social issues. Unity provides a lot of great gags, like why should would ever need a newspaper or when she bombs an entire city but evacuated all the bodies she hosts who all then yell to Rick “Hey! See? We’re all fine!” (As a side not, the Community references were on point).

Summer advocating for them to all go back to being the people they were was great too, especially once Unity starts to lose control. Having a race war break out immediately over different nipple shapes was a brilliant satire of our own culture.

Meanwhile, Beth and Jerry argue about Rick’s underground lair while they search for the weed wacker (only on this show, you guys). This show is amazing at applying everyday problems to the absurdist science fiction world of Rick and Morty.

The episode ends as it has to with Unity breaking up with Rick. It’s a bit simplistic, but the episode’s overall plot still works as well as the best the series has ever produced. Season two so far looks to be upholding the quality we’ve come to expect from the series. That means a lot of great comedy and TV in general. Grade: A-
