It looks like for the first time in a while, the fans will see the Smiths doing the normal family stuff. As they are about to go out on a picnic. The title of Rick and Morty Season 5 Episode 8 is “Rickternal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort.” It is a reference to the 2004 blockbuster film titled “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” However, Rick won’t join them as he will be staying at home to work on his super-secret mission.
It is the exact opposite of what he has been trying to do in the past seven episodes. He wanted to spend more time with his family, but this time he will separate himself intentionally. So, it is likely that he is working on something really important. The next episode of the series will answer everything, so here are all the latest details.
Rick And Morty Season 5 Episode 8: Preview & Plot Details!
The logline of Rickternal Friendshine of the Spotless Mort reads, “Friendship is hard. It’s like a journey of the mind, broh.” Both the title and its logline are indicating that the next episode will revolve around Rick’s friend. The promo is also showing that Rick denies Morty’s offer to come along on the picnic. Rick said that he has a lot of important things to do at home. It is one of the super-secret missions in which he will try to help his friend.
This friend of Rick might turn out to be Birdperson. Rick already tried to store him in the fourth season finale, but he wasn’t successful. Also, before the fifth season’s premiere, the makers teased that it will feature some major canonical plays. However, it didn’t take place in the previous episodes, so the possibility is high that it might take place in the last three episodes. If this happens, then the eights episode will certainly bring something very different to the table.
