Directed by Jacob Hair and written by Jeff Loveness, the fifth season premiere of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's Rick and Morty left a lot on the table for viewers to process until next Sunday (you can check out our full review here). So before we start shifting our attention to next Sunday's episode, there are still a few post-series-return treats that are more than worth your time- from two unique ways to watch "Mort Dinner Rick Andre" to a look behind the scenes with the creative team; plus, we see if that Wendy's mob caught up to the pair yet.
