    All it takes is five minutes on social media. BOOM - instant trauma.

    Welcome to Candy Land - Rick and Morty style.

    I can remember the last time you went somewhere with immortality insurance.

    Looks like Jerry is on the rebound.

    Like inbred Care Bear Cousins.

    Boy, Mabel Land really went to pot after Weirdmageddon.

    "Raping Muppets and eating babies." Weirdly funny line.

    The Froop never falls far from the tree.

    So was this just the warm-up hunt?

    "People who eat people are the happiest people..."

    Would you believe this is the SECOND angry crazy alien girl in the last two days?

    And his rebound was on the rebound.

    Who still uses answering machines?

    Aww, season finale? I was really hoping there were fourteen episodes this year.

    Ladies and gentlemen, we have found the rickest Beth.

    And Jerry continues to be a pathetic piece of crap.

    I got a real "I am Legend" vibe when those beasties they were hunting turned out to be innocent sentient beings.

    Didn't really care for this one, it feels like the same old same old, Jerry being a huge dumb beta wimp and Beth being a huge $%^%$ probably my least favorite episodes

    Seriously, Rick and Morty's seasons always feel like they end way too soon. And what happened to this season being 14 episodes anyway? It doesn't even look like their production process is that complicated either compared to other TV cartoons.

    I don't know, I guess I just feel like we get too little too infrequently.

    Ten episodes follows by a two year hiatus is pretty dumb and I wish Adult Swim would find some way to get these shows out faster.

    You know, I can't help but wonder whatever made everyone think Tommy's father ate him? I mean if they thought he murdered him that would've been more understandable but murdered AND ate him? Did Rick have a hand in that?

    I actually really like this one a lot because this honestly feels like the first episode we've really gotten about Beth specifically. Most other episodes even if they're about her are honestly about how she interacts with other people and her relationships there. Like with Jerry or with her kids or Rick and yeah obviously the later episode is highlighted here but this is actually about her having her walls come down and actually questioning whether or not she sees herself as a good person. Finally coming to a wall and having to make a decision and... honestly I actually like how we don't know for sure if she did. Seems like it but them not specifically spelling it out either way leaves it in the air which honestly make the decision all the more impactful. And honestly I like the idea of being cloned and saying that will be you to everyone else to pursue your own life being used as an escape in general and does go along with the sort of nihilistic ideas this series has about how one sees themselves in comparison to the universe around them. This isn't something like American Dad that used that whole "oh Jeff was killed but was cloned and brought back" just for the sake of a twist that obviously the writers don't care too much about as they always change and alter the characters to have too much consistency between each episode so even the reasoning behind that always feels different. Here the staff obviously cares about how it uses it's characters and they're journeys together so this stuff feels like it has a purpose and a deeper meaning behind it. And honestly the interplay between Beth and Rick is honestly a lot different then every other character since though there is an obvious difference between them they're simliarites like feeling it pointless to truly apologize and being able to cut through the BS (like figuring out exactly what was going on with the people in this world) was good stuff. I didn't care so much for the sub plot of this one. It felt like "The Whirly Derby Conspiracy" was actually trying to advance Jerry and I guess him wanting to be with someone else on the rebound is a different direction but eh him constantly sliding and cowardly getting out of the relationship feels like serious backtrack. I did really like Summer having him spell out how much of a failure he is and that being their help as well as him being the rebound for someone else but the subplot was not one of the better ones and a reminder of why Jerry is still the weakest character in this series. Still the A plot was solid here and again good to focus on someone we haven't really gotten it on their own character.

    And honestly I'm not too bummed of the next episode being the finale for the season. Yeah these seasons are decently short and do take awhile to be made but... it's obvious they put a lot of care and quality into each episode and that they aren't working with a super high budget animation company like with Simpsons or Faimly Guy who can nail down 20 much more interchangable and forgettable episodes together per year. Plus honestly I'm just use to this being a thing for Adult Swim half hour shows. Venture Brothers still does this and always produces solid runs so same thing here really.

    I was really looking forward to a 14-episode season.

    Go football go!

    The same president as last season. This episode just premiered and already it's dated.

    At least they missed the Reagan Soviet Memorabilia cave.

    They are so getting an angry tweet from him.

    Somebody misses them.

    Beth remembered last week?

    An ironically-named species.

    This whole thing is pretty much a swipe at the fanbase.

    Rick and Morty for president!

    JUST GIVE HIM THE SELFIE!!!

    Boy, it's like White House Dumb, am i right?

    Volcano? That movie sucked.

    Was that a moon landing set?

    So the divorce isn't happening.

    And in one episode, the damage he did to the family is undone.
