Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 5 release date, time, plot, cast, and trailer for Adult Swim’s sci-fi show

The Night Family retired so it’s time to leap into the season’s second half for more surreal fun.

We’ve reached the midway point of Rick and Morty Season 6, and while there’s been plenty of hijinks, the series has been light on any canon-heavy moments. Will we ever see Evil Morty again? What about Rick Prime? Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 5 could provide an answer — or just offer absurdly weird adventure.

Here’s everything you need to know about Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 5. But first...

What happened in Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 5?

Terrors in the night were the focus of last week’s installment as Rick’s Somnambulator machine created nocturnal versions of himself and the Smith family with some seriously creepy results.

Highlighted by strains of eerie music to set the old-fashioned mood, the “Night Family” bit was a perfect transition towards Halloween with its homage to classic horror B-movies featuring lumbering zombies, doppelgangers, and all things that do boring chores in the dark.

But enslaving their Night Selves to perform tasks while their real bodies are snoozing has undesired consequences. As things quickly unravel between the two family factions, it becomes a battle of the wills to see which side will dominate the household. With the tables turned, Day serves the Night when Night Summer takes control which leads to a hyperactive car chase finale featuring security robots, tranquilizer darts, an exploding Adderall truck, and a gasoline factory built beside a dynamite museum and dry leaf storage. Don’t forget to rinse those dishes!
