Rick and Morty Episode 4: Release Date and Speculation

Adult Swim developed the fifth season of the animated television series Rick and Morty.

Rickdependence Spray will be the 45th episode of the show and is set to release soon. But when is its release date, and what time will it be available to watch? Here’s all you need to know.

Fifty more episodes have been confirmed as part of a deal at Adult Swim that renewed the series for 70 additional episodes in May 2018.

1. Rick and Morty Episode 4 Speculations

The fourth episode of ‘Rick and Morty’ season 5 is titled ‘Rickdependence Spray’ and references the hit 90s action film ‘Independence Day.’ The episode will focus on Beth and Morty spending some quality time together but not necessarily through mutual agreement.

Morty is likely to get bored at Beth’s workplace, and his curiosity about the place might lead to hilarious and embarrassing moments. Meanwhile, Rick is likely to stir up his usual scientific genius shenanigans and will end up creating some monsters in his lab.

The monsters are likely to escape Rick’s custody and cause mass destruction across the country. This will likely bring into the picture Rick’s frenemy, the President of the United States. The two might have to work together to neutralize the threat of the monsters.

The President might receive some heroic moments as an homage to Bill Pullman’s character President Thomas J. Whitmore, in the film as mentioned above. The new episode is likely to be high on patriotism and political themes.

It might also feature some tense emotional moments juxtaposed against a war backdrop.

A promo clip for the new episode doesn’t give much away, with it showing Morty visiting Beth at work in the horse hospital. Morty’s eyes widen when he sees the horses’ breeding pump, which is presumably going to have some gross-out consequences:

It remains to be seen if Planetina will return in this latest episode or if Rick and Morty will move on without the character. Given its synopsis, it seems likely that it will be the latter option.
