Spoilers ahead (obviously)
In Season 3, Episode 4 of Rick and Morty ("Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender"), Rick, Morty, and the remaining two Vindicators reach Rick's last challenge: to figure out what the one part of the Vindicators is that has any value to Rick. Furthermore, if they guess wrong, the planet or maybe even the solar system would explode because he "kind of eyeballed the neutrino bombs on this one."
After some debate and at Rick's suggestion, Morty goes up to the stand and presumably thinks that the answer is himself, or at least the effect that the Vindicators have on Morty.
This turns out to not incorrect, as apparently Rick actually only values Noob Noob, as he alone laughed at Rick's jokes the previous day.
My question is as follows: when Morty guessed wrong, why didn't the neutrino bombs kill everyone? Are we supposed to just accept that they're duds (as Morty mentioned there was a 40% chance of happening)? Because that feels a little unsatisfying to me. Additionally, if the bombs were just duds, why would the hatch have opened up and taken Morty through Rick's little excursion? - one would think that would only happen if the correct answer was given.
