'Rick and Morty' Season 4 Episode 8: The duo return to their old bickering vindictive selves and fans love it
Spoilers for 'Rick and Morty' Season 4 Episode 8 'The Vat of Acid Episode'
Fans cannot stop raving at the latest episode of 'Rick and Morty'. In the 'The Vat of Acid Episode', the duo goes on a simple exchange, but after it starts going downhill, Rick and Morty jump into the same vat of acid. However, the idea seems silly to Morty who berates it in front of Rick, then questions him about his own idea of a video game remote that would give one the option of "redoing" after dying. "Wait is Morty over Ricks shit?" tweeted a fan. "Morty had had enough of the BS from Rick lol," said another.
What follows is a hilarious episode of Rick teaching Morty a lesson — going back to its roots of bickering and revenge. It took no time to become a fan favorite this season. "Only minutes into tonight's rick and morty episode and it's already the best one this season," said one fan. "This feels back to the roots. Not that the others are bad. But this is you boys in the zone," added another. "That might have been my favorite #rickandmorty episode," said one.
Some fans satisfactorily compared it to previous episodes. "Past two episodes were fucking garbage, this episode finally feels like the real rick and morty." Another said, "Finally, a good Rick and Morty episode from the second half of season 4!" One went on to say, "OMFG RICK IS SUCH AN A*****E!!! XDDD But Morty so are you hahaha!!! #RickandMortyseason4 #RickandMorty"
But for many, it brought back the criticisms of Rick's selfish, manipulative and harshly vindictive behaviour. "LMFAOOOO bro I love rick and morty omfg that was f**king weak rick is so extra, he said what ur not gonna do it call MY idea dumb," said one. "Wow, this new rick and morty sucked. Rick is such an awful character. Like, season 1 and 2 Rick was a character who was an a*****e, who had heart. You know he at least SOMEWHAT cared. But this. He's an irredeemable piece of s**t. Same with morty. Both are pieces of s**t now," said a fan. 'Rick and Morty' Season 4 airs Sundays at 11.30 pm EST on Adult Swim.
