Last night, Rick and Morty returned with the first episode of the second half of Season Four. If that’s not confusing enough, the sci-fi series threw fans for a loop with “Never Ricking Morty,” an anthology episode that threw the Interdimensional Cable setup out the window in favor of a meta Story Train. Confused? So were Twitter users.

Here’s how fans responded to the return of Rick and Morty:

All the references about storytelling structure, the Bechdel test, and TV episode plotting proved too inside baseball for some viewers.

Layers upon layers of WTF were unfurled.

Jesus Christ even dropped by.

Finally, Rick and Morty left us with condemnation of capitalism and promise of a real website that totally wasn’t.
