'Rick and Morty' Season 4 bids farewell with a bang after confirming Beth's clone theory
What made it an exciting reveal was the fact that literally no one was expecting to know whether Beth was a clone or not
Spoilers for 'Rick and Morty' Season 4 Finale 'Star Mort Rickturn of the Jerri'
And just like that, Season 4 of Adult Swim's 'Rick and Morty' came to an end. By far the most stretched-out instalment of the hit animated series, the show had returned barely a month ago after almost five months on a hiatus. 'Star Mort Rickturn of the Jerri' brings the season to a striking conclusion that has left our minds blown.
Fans are highly impressed with the Season 4 finale episode that calls back on not only one of the most important questions about Rick's life — turning his daughter Beth (Sarah Chalke) into a clone — but also calls back on one of the most beloved characters - Birdperson, who is now Phoenixperson (Dan Harmon), thanks to an upgrade. So as it turns out, Beth really is a clone. In Season 3, when Beth is first faced with the dilemma, the audience is never shown what decision the character had made. Now, one season and almost three years later, creators reveal that she was indeed the clone.
And fans are blown away that the creators would take the show in this direction. "Ohhhh rick and morty started out with a bang." One said, "Oh s**t, the Beth clone was a thing!" while another tweeted, "THEY REALLY THOUGHT RICK AND MORTY WAS DONE WITH PLOT." Another surprised viewer added, "#rickandmorty lol just found out in the cold open that Beth DID make the choice in s3." One more tweeted, "I KNEW Beth was a clone. KNEW it in my heart. #rickandmorty." One said, "F***ing christ @RickandMorty is UNMATCHED."
Ending the season on such an enticing note has viewers feeling sore at the thought of the long wait till the next instalment. What made it an exciting reveal was the fact that literally no one was expecting to know whether Beth was a clone or not. "I'M SO GLAD I'M STAYING UP LATE FOR THIS!!!! @RickandMorty #season4finale." When the show returned from hiatus a month ago, it returned with a bang. Except for one unfulfilling episode since its return, 'Rick and Morty' has consistently wowed its audience — an audience that is now sad to say its goodbyes. "I can’t believe rick and morty season over already," tweeted one. "@RickandMorty season 4 finale. . . ALREADY? Sigh. Need more than 10 episodes!" added another. "I wanna be the first to ask: Rick and Morty Season 5 when?" We don't know yet. Till then, we shall resort to watching 'Rick and Morty' re-runs.
