    I cut this out of the episode, but I'm seeing this question show up in the comments, so let me clarify:

    - The clock in the garage is ALWAYS stuck at that time in every scene you see it, at least in this episode. So the time it reads can't be used as a part of putting together an accurate timeline of events. Good job looking out for it, though!

    Was beth always a clone from the start of the show how can we know if she is or isn't the "real beth"

                            Hi so I have a theory maybe she was acting strange and affectionate was because the clone wasn’t done yet, so she was just been sweet and loving because she was about to leave her family

                                        unless beth was cloned way before and rick anticipated it hence his travel pitch

                                                      This is a solid theory but you didnt take into account that there is a box labeled "time travel stuff" in on his shelves in the garage. This shows that rick is fully capable of altering time. Even in the clip of an interview you used at 6:46 the idea of time travel has been proven to be in their thoughts. Therefore they could introduce time travel into the new season coming November 2019.

                                                        That's the joke I think, the idea of time travel has literally been shelved.

                                                      At 18:17 in the actual episode Beth and rick are talking about cloning her, behind the cloning chamber it shows a clock that says its 2 o'clock, so if they cloned her, it would only be 5 o'clock.

                                                          Beth is clone as she doesn't remember her decision to become a clone or not. Granted Rick can erase memory's he wouldn't waste the time on clearing a clones memory if it only left a open ended question Meaning "work". The real Beth asked for Rick to remove her answer to ensure her clone would take the time to verify her place in her family. Trust but verify to entrust operations are covered correctly. Its a managers tool after all.

                                                              I've never doubted that she's the same Beth as the beginning of the episode.
                                                              I question if she's a clone of another Beth who caught the same offer and TOOK IT!

                                                                              • Joseph Camp

                                                                                • Rocket Point

If rick has the power to manipulate memories (which we know he has becouse of the previous episode) why would he leave the memory of the choice of wanting to leave/stay also he said it has 0% chance of going blade runner so she is definitly not a clone or the writers didnt really think this one through

                                                                                      • Mir Allan Dogan
