Not to be outdone by the plethora of ridiculous April Fool’s Day jokes, Adult Swim decided to pull the best prank of all: show something real.
On Saturday night, Adult Swim streamed the first episode of the long-anticipated season three, just about 18 months after season two ended.
It closes out some of the previous season’s cliffhangers with a bang, to put it mildly.
In the span of 30 minutes, Rick defeated the Council of Ricks, overturned the Federation (by simply changing the value of their currency from one to zero), and finally got rid of Beth’s husband Jerry.
As big as the episode is, the last few minutes were what really stood out (before the post-credits teaser).
Last season ended on a bit of ambiguity, making us wonder who Rick really was and what he stood for.
