"Space Beth" is a character on Rick and Morty. She is either the original Beth Smith from the Replacement Dimension, or a clone of her.

Biography

At the end of "The ABC's of Beth", Rick made a clone of Beth labeled "Clone Beth" with all her memories and, unable to decide whether or not he wanted his daughter in his life as Beth had asked him to decide, purposefully has their positions shuffled so that he himself would not know which Beth was the clone, before sending one to space and keeping the other at home, and wiping his own memory of the incident (later, this leads him to finally admit to himself that he is a terrible father).

By the time of "Star Mort Rickturn of the Jerri", Space Beth has gone on several space adventures to reach the most wanted status. She also discovers a chip implanted in her neck that will kill her should return to Earth and get in proximity of the other Beth. She returns to Earth to murder Rick for lying to her, as well as the other Beth, but Rick invites her to lunch after they are shown equal in gadgets. She talks with him, surprised the other Beth is still with Jerry before they come under attack, during which, Rick inadvertently implies Space Beth may be the actual clone. Space Beth tracks down her counterpart and nearly succeeds in killing her before they are kidnapped by Tammy. While incarcerated, they talk about their contrasting lives and they reach common ground. Working together, the two versions of Beth defeat the aliens and both come to help Rick with Phoenixperson, and they both are impressed with Jerry coming in handy. Space Beth also meets Summer and Morty who are amazed to have two versions of their mother. At the end, it is revealed Rick doesn't know which Beth is which, as he erased his own memory. However, the two versions of Beth and wider Smith family are content with the mystery, as they now respect one another and are unwilling to give Rick any sense of satisfaction.

Appearance

Space Beth has a scar over her right eye and a piercing in her right eyebrow. Half her head is shaved, with a blue streak in the hair on the unshaven half. Her outfit is comprised of black boots, skin-tight clothing, mismatched bits of cybernetic, enhanced armor (such as a gray breastplate and bronze-colored wrist gauntlet), fingerless gloves, and a waistcoat with a stylized black horse head emblem on its back. Additionally, she wears a gray, gauntlet-like device on her right forearm that appears to have several functions.

Personality

Complete with all of Beth's memories, this Beth is similar to her counterpart.

Space Beth seems to be ambitious, as she goes on adventures in outer space, much like Rick himself. She appears to have had good intentions and chose to be a hero, fighting off the tyrannical Galactic Federation, but at the cost of becoming a wanted outlaw - a criminal in the eyes of the law. She despises how - despite being infamous her name - "Beth Smith" is seen as incredibly forgettable name.

Space Beth appears to be vengeful of her father. Although she holds immense resentment to both Rick and the other Beth, her hatred seems to have toned down by the end of "Star Mort Rickturn of the Jerri", as she has returned to live with her earthly counterpart and her family, including Jerry who remarried the other Beth. Neither Beth knows or cares which of them is the clone or original, as they respect the other for being who they are and because of the mutual resentment of Rick. Another thing to note is that she still acknowledges Rick as her father, and didn't try to kill him upon returning to the family - and instead teases him, throwing punches and using blank threats. This shows that although she does feel dislike for her father, she still has a streak of decency and compassion in her not to kill him.

She also takes clear inspiration from Rick - even though she detests the fact that he kept her in the dark about potentially being a clone - as she mentions that she cosplays as Rick in his 30's. She also takes a lot of interests after him, like visiting Shoney's and going on space adventures.

Relationships

Romance

Jerry Smith

Beth was disappointed to find out that her other self remarried Jerry, but Rick pointed out that since they are the same person, she would have done the same thing. Later on, she admits that Jerry "has his moments" and is implied to have also reestablished their relationship alongside Beth.

Family

Beth Smith

Although she originally wanted to kill her, she has come to admire her. Using their traits from their respective lives, the two Beths work together to kill the aliens.

At the end, they both mutually decided not to discover who is the original and seem to regard each other as family.

Rick Sanchez

She detested her father for lying to her about cloning her. She returned to Earth to kill him but did talk peacefully with him at a diner when Rick initially told her she wasn't the clone and was pleased to see him acknowledge her endeavors as a space adventurer.

At the end, while Space Beth still resents Rick she still acknowledges him as her father and appears to have given up on killing him to settle for belittling him and pretending to punch at him.

Morty Smith

Much like her original counterpart from Earth, she has completed memories, and acknowledges Morty as a son. She also permitted him to drive her spaceship, as this saved her from giving him souvenirs. Morty calls this Beth amazing, not caring if she is his original mother.

Summer Smith

Much like her original counterpart from Earth, she has completed memories. She acknowledges Summer as a daughter.

Others

Mr. Poopybutthole

She shares the other Beth's regret of shooting Mr. Poopybutthole in the chest at the end of "Total Rickall". As she was in space, she did not keep in touch with Mr. Poopybutthole during his recovery in Season 4.

Note: Space Beth shares her memories with the Beth of the replacement dimension up until "The ABC's of Beth".

Trivia

  • This Beth was identified as "Clone Beth" in the Pocket Mortys update that accompanied the Season 4 finale, despite the episode itself not confirming that she was the clone. This name choice could have simply been to differentiate the two.
  • This Beth appears to have a better grasp at using gadgets due to her time in space.
  • Despite having a scar over her right eye, her right eyelids show no sign of scarring.
  • The blue streak in her hair might be a reference to Evil Britta from Dan Harmon's other series, Community.
  • She has an emblem shaped like a horse's head at the back of her jacket, possibly referring to the fact that she was a horse surgeon.
