Rick dives into his memory lane and recalls some of his past decisions, and the show kicks off with the return of Birdperson. Birdperson last appeared in the Season 4 finale, where he had huge fight with Rick. Also, Rick decides to fix his former best friend, now turned a foe. Rick even manages to rebuilt Birdperson’s body, but finds his memories missing. He then enters Birdperson’s conscious to get the memory, and then he goes on different memories to restore his best friend’s memory.
Fans are hoping for another canon in the special one-hour season finale and reintroduce evil Morty. In the next episode, there is a high possibility that a major character from the past makes their return. Like in the movie that the title is referencing, Rick and Morty may find a familiar face in their new adventure, much to each other’s surprise.
