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.

Finally, Rick and Morty left us with condemnation of capitalism and promise of a real website that totally wasn’t.
Rick and Morty literally took all the meta in one episode and killed it. Then made us understand capitalism is the MOST important thing apart from understanding our own existence and purpose even our own beliefs! #rickAndMorty pic.twitter.com/EaRpZCctNp— jcvillan (@Reshnogar) May 4, 2020
