Rick and Morty Season 4 Preview: There's Nothing Duct Tape Can't Do

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's dimension-hopping duo kicked-off their midseason return with an episode of Rick and Morty that still has us debating what's canon, what's not canon, where the show's heading from this point forward and if any of us really know who we are anymore. Let's just say that "Never Ricking Morty" dumped us in a boiling vat of "meta" that left us counting broken walls, questioning the endless storyline cycle that is Life, appreciating the disturbing nature of the phrase "c**-gutters", and disappointed that the website in the end credits scene wasn't legit.

So with that Morty-experiencing-perfect-balance-and-then-stepping-off feeling still with us, we have a new look at this Sunday's episode "Promortyus". From the start, we can tell that we're in store for some nice takes on the Alien franchise (hopefully, they're bigger fans of the film than they are of heist films or anthologies). While there's a lot to take away from the preview below (ex: childbirth sucks), the thing that impressed us the most? There really isn't anything duct tape can't fix:

Here's a look at the original preview for this Sunday's episode, which gives Morty the chance to turn the tables on Rick. As much as Rick got on Morty about not listening to him and staying in the ship, Morty gets to return some of that in-kind because clearly Rick didn't heed his concerns about overly wet eggs (not some kind of sick innuendo this time, we promise).

Harmon, Roiland, and Adult Swim released an episode titles announcement video that gave a nice "wink-and-a-nod" to The Terminator before revealing the following loaded episode names (with loglines included). Beginning with return episode "Never Ricking Morty," we have "Promortyus" (Get off my face, broth), "The Vat of Acid Episode" (The one with the acid vat, broth), "Childrick of Mort" (Miracle of life, broth. Whole family in this one, broh.), and "Star Mort Rickturn of the Jerri" (Parenting is crazy, broh. Stuff straight disappearin in this one).
