Rick and Morty is now halfway through the fifth season with the fifth episode premiering on Adult Swim! The fifth season of the Adult Swim animated series was one of the strangest in the series yet, and that was especially true for the fourth installment of the series which shared a story about space sperm, incest space babies, and a race of horse people underground. So all eyes were on the fifth episode to see how it would follow everything up as each new episode so far differs dramatically from each other.
The first look at the fifth episode of the series teased that Rick and Jerry would have a special “boys night” only to reveal that Rick used Jerry as part of a deal with the show’s take on the series. Hellraiser‘s Cenobites. Hilariously, this was just the first of many big scenes we would get throughout the episode. Read on for a full rundown of everything that happened in Episode 5, “Amortycan Grickfitti”!
- Rick reveals that he and Jerry are going on a “Guys Night”, much to Beth’s chagrin, while she is caring for an emergency at an equine hospital. Meanwhile, Morty and Summer decide to team up to impress the new transfer student who hangs out with Morty, Bruce Chutback, before he learns they are losers. As for Jerry, it’s been revealed that Rick is only using his lameness to fulfill a debt to Cenobites who feed on that awkwardness and suffering.
- Bruce Chutback arrives and gets a hilarious intro because he hasn’t done anything to embarrass himself yet. Morty tries to show him Interdimensional Cable, but he is only impressed by Rick’s spaceship, so Morty and Summer do their best to keep him interested, but the ship refuses to cooperate without Rick. They tell the ship that Rick is in trouble, go offline and go on a joyride.
- Meanwhile, Jerry does karaoke while Morty and Summer take Chutback on a joyride. Beth arrives to interrupt the boys’ night and insults the Cenobites, and she ends up drinking the essence of the cenobites’ hell. Meanwhile, the car learns that Morty and Summer have lied to him and blackmails them into doing whatever he wants, including killing a version of Marvel’s Galactus and flirting with “Changeformers,” a spoof of Transformers.
- The car and Bruce Chutback begin to bond, and the car decides to keep their secret as they all help him lose his virginity. Meanwhile, Jerry hears the Cenobites ridicule him while Beth makes his suffering even more prominent. Meanwhile, Rick’s car also makes a Changeformer and approaches the others from back in the day, but does not bond with them when they discover that she is not one of them.
- Rick’s car then burns them all alive. Meanwhile, Jerry fights back against the Cenobites and they soon decide to take matters into their own hands and kidnap Jerry to take him to Hell because Beth is ruining his taste. After this, Rick and Beth sneak into Hell and disguise themselves as Cenobites, but it’s revealed that Beth and Rick were actually their true target.
- The Cenobites then explain that Beth and Rick think they are so cool, which is what makes them so weak, and thus more attractive to them. Meanwhile, Morty and Summer decide to pin everything on Bruce Chutback when they are captured after the car’s joyride, but soon the car decides to save them and blow everything up anyway.
- Meanwhile, Rick decides to kill the Cenobites with sheer sincerity and then apologizes to Jerry for cheating on him in the first place. This works and fills a minigun allowing Rick to kill all Cenobites with positive energy. Rick then apologizes to Jerry again, and they head back home. Meanwhile, the car continues to destroy things in space and Morty, Bruce and Summer soon head home before Rick, Jerry and Beth do.
- Though they can get away with anything, Bruce Chutback decides to be alone and understand the school hierarchy before committing. So all of Morty and Summer’s adventures by car to impress him were ultimately for nothing. Chutback is fooled the next day for wearing the same pants a second day in a row.
