It’s been five long seasons since Rick and Morty have been around. Together, grandpa and grandson have toured through different times and places in space. And somehow, all of their adventures have come out to be hilarious. The entire family has joined the two by just being associated with them. And now, the show is back for a fifth season. And it is back with much power.
Of course, Justin Roiland has come back to voice both the actors and various others and as one of the primary writers of the show and executive producer and director!
The Love-hate Relationship that Grows between Rick and Morty
Now, with the coming season, it’s been seen that Rick and Morty have had a kind of love and hate relationship. While Grandpa Rick is constantly fighting his space enemies, Morty wants to live an everyday life for once. Morty hasn’t been to a good week of school because of Rick. And now he wants things to be expected. But definitely, that is not the case. The fun of it, the 5th season, kicked off with all the explicit and uncensored animated fun.
Especially with all the other characters that have been surrounding the two. Rick and Morty both met with aliens that have had weird fetishes. They have even traveled to planets that use sexual experiences as a daily norm.
Rick and Morty are continuing for years and years to come!
For the fans who have been looking for great news, you will be glad to know that the show will not get over anytime soon. While the 5th season has already been scheduled for ten episodes only, there is still more to come. The creators making decisions at the Adult Swim studio have confirmed that there will be 50 more episodes as part of a 70-episode deal made back in 2018.
The creator Justin Roiland is a lot to offer from the shows. But, unlike any other good sitcom, this one can also go on for a more extended period.
Season 5 so far
So far, for the show, three episodes have already been released. So let us take a look at what the 5th season has offered up till now:
Episode 1: Mort Dinner Rick Andre
The episode starts with crashing Rick’s ship crash landing in an ocean. After coming back home, Morty asks a girl, Jessica, out on a date. Jessica is a girl Morty met in school. Now, there are always consequences attached to Rick’s actions. Unfortunately, when his ship crash-landed in the ocean, it caused one of Rick’s old nemeses to come back for revenge, Mr. Nimbus. Mr. Nimbus is known as King of the Ocean. Mr. Nimbus then tells Rick that he has altered the life of an alternate dimension and messed with the timeline. But for Mr. Nimbus, this is good news since he is now powerful than ever and can control cops and make them do anything. While all this is going on, Mr. Nimbus stays at their residence. Because of this, Morty is not getting to spend time with his girlfriend, Jessica.
Rick and Nimbus get into a fight to prove who is boss. It also turns out that Rick had sent Summer to discover a shell that helps him gain superhuman strength. Meanwhile, while Jessica tries to leave, Morty tries to make her stay, telling her that they will now spend time together. Meanwhile, Jerry and Beth question their sex life and how it’s meaningless now. Finally, in a post-credit scene, Jerry and Beth offer to have sex with Mr. Nimbus.
Episode 2: Mortplicity
In this episode, the family deals with multiple decoys. The episode starts with Rick, Morty, Jerry, and Beth are having breakfast, and in the middle, the alien squad interrupts their family that morning and kills them. Luckily, Rick has made decoys of the original family, and he made multiple ones. But now, the family of baits starts killing each other. And the process repeats over again and again.
It is all left to see as to who is the original family. With all this in mind, Grandpa Rick never reveals who the natural family is until the end of the episode. The real Smith family is alerted that all decoys have been killed, questioning Rick about what he is talking about.
Episode 3: A Rickconvenient Mort
The episode kicks off when Rick and Morty are standing outside somewhere, and suddenly it starts to rain acid. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a planet captain named Planetina is a superhero who stops the rain. Seeing her in action, Morty starts to fall in love with her and then abandons Rick to travel around with her in space. When Morty comes back home, he is entirely in love with Planaltina. He discovers that Planetina has four kids, and they are the very reason that he is alive. They are air, fire, dirt, and water.
On the other hand, Summer hangs out with Grandpa Rick to have meaningless sexual encounters with strangers. These are species that come from different planets across space. But on the journey, Rick falls in love with an alien named Daphne, who he thinks, loves her back. Unfortunately, it turns out that the alien turns out to be a gold digger. Summer then takes Rick into the shape, leaves the alien planet with him while Rick is still furious.
There is more to come!
After three episodes, the good news is that this season still has seven episodes left of absolute comedy. However, it may be a comedy that may not be suited for the young audience. Nonetheless, for the fans watching, it is definitely worth the time to see what happens next. If you observe, all the episodes have a particular Hollywood movie theme attached to them. The show is trying to make a mockery out of some of the biggest Hollywood names. This may come out as offensive humor, but the creators have a mutual understanding that everyone takes it in an exemplary fashion.
This season is planned to last up until August and maybe later. The final air date for the final episode has not been disclosed yet. We can only wait and find out to see how the explicit space adventures continue. Until then, it is time for you to catch up with the old and new seasons and see how life is only getting crazier for the grandpa and grandson duo. The Smith family is not going to stop. Let’s meet more of Rick’s weird space enemies!
