"there’s a half-crazed mention of 'this virus' in the post-credits scene of the episode marking Rick and Morty season four’s return to Adult Swim, though it was at least partially completed before a global pandemic shut us all into self-quarantines," says Melissa Leon of last night's midseason premiere. "...Call it clairvoyant then or call it coincidence, but 'Never Ricking Morty' manages to articulate the surreality of life these days with a kind of madman’s precision. Like, you ever wonder what it’d be like to be stuck indoors on a train moving in perpetually circular motion with no engine, no endpoint destination, and the creeping suspicion that we all exist in a simulation authored by the most obvious writer in Hollywood? Welcome aboard the Story Train. Tickets, please."
