Rick And Morty S5 Episode 8: Release Date And Speculation

Rick And Morty Season 5 Episode 8 will either see Rick lonely or more experimental. Recently on the show, we did see how experimental he can get all over again. Morty saw this coming all the way but not the family.

Especially Summer, who got lost in all excitement with Rick’s new experiment. So did Beth and Jerry. The family supported Rick in his big GoTron experiment in the making. Meanwhile, Morty was left out and felt really bad, but by the end of the day, he turned out to be right.

There was indeed a bigger mess coming in.

Rick and Morty Season 5 Episode 8 Speculations

‘Rick and Morty’ season 5 episode 8 is titled ‘Rickternal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort.’ The title is a reference to 2004’s hit romantic sci-fi film ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.’

In the episode, the Smiths will be heading out for a fun family activity away from the usual shenanigans that Rick’s space-faring antics get them into.

Therefore, it will be a nice change of pace to see the family doing normal stuff. Meanwhile, Rick will be staying behind to work on one of his super-secret projects.

Given the episode’s title, it is likely that Rick will be trying to help a friend. That friend could be Birdperson.

As fans might recall, Rick tried to restore Birdperson/Phoenixperson in the fourth season finale, but his attempts are rebuffed. Birdperson has been Rick’s closest friend, and his reemergence could signal an emotionally heavy tone for the new episode.

We might see a more vulnerable side of Rick, and more about his past could also be revealed. The episode could also set up a three-way conflict between Rick, Birdperson, and Mr. Nimbus, Rick’s former friend turned adversary.

Here’s a promo for episode 8!

It revolves around Rick’s obsession with mechanical robot ferrets, which combine to form a giant mecha robot known as Gotron. Rick enlists the help of alternate versions of his family to run a large-scale Gotron operation with Summer as his right hand.

As Rick and Summer’s power and influence grow, they begin to become blind to the feelings of their family in a way that mirrors 80s crime movies revolving around mafia empires.

In the end, with the help of Naruto (the giant incest baby from season 5 episode 4), the family is able to save Rick from getting killed, and things return to normal.
