Rick and Morty’s 7th episode from season 5 leaks early in Canada after a streaming issue with Amazon Prime caused viewers to miss episode 4.
Episode 7 of Rick and Morty‘s 5th season leaked early online in Canada. The latest season, currently airing Sunday nights on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, dives deeper into more mature themes while also testing itself with outlandish settings and plot. The guest stars, such as Jim Gaffigan as Hoovy and Alison Brie who voices Planetina, help highlight how much the Smiths have developed as characters since the series began back in 2013.
The current season is good for the series’ loyal fanbase, as well as first time watchers, because each episode is able to stand on its own while still referencing the universe the show has created. While Rick and Morty has used some similar themes that have carried on throughout different seasons, like different versions of the Smith family interacting with each other and the effect relationships can have on people, season 5 doesn’t need the context of previous seasons for the episodes to be understood. With the second half yet to be released, it is unknown how far they will continue to push themselves to meet the standard fans have set for them, in addition to the standard they have set for themselves.
The 7th episode of season 5 of Rick and Morty, entitled “Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion,” was leaked early in Canada. Viewers, such as The sweet speed, shared the news via Twitter that Amazon Prime had aired part of the 7th episode, as opposed to the episode intended to air, “Rickdependence Spray.” The news was later confirmed by CN News/Schedules on Twitter. Check out the tweet below:

The 7th episode of the show appears to feature the Smith’s forming a massive Voltron-esque robot composed of a series of differently colored robotic ferrets or weasels. The series continues its trend of parodying ’80s pop culture, which it has done in the past with characters such as Scary Terry, Rick copying Inspector Gadget, and most notable example, the title characters themselves being parodies of Doc. Brown and Marty from Back to the Future. The reinvention of classic icons is undoubtable a staple of the series, with some, like the decoy Smith families featured in the season 5’s “Mortiplicity,” being more successful than others.
Having received a 70 episode order back in 2018, Rick and Morty has time to see how far they can go with whatever ideas they choose to focus on. They have proven that the series can manage more than anyone initially thought, and yet they have avoided becoming too complacent with their success. Whether an action episode about giant sperm set on destroying life as people know it, or a short reminiscent of Eli Roth’s Hostel, the Smiths are not pinned down to one concept. As the season continues, it will be thrilling to see how the writers choose to change and enhance what is already an iconic franchise.
