RICK AND MORTY Is Officially Halfway Over After Revealing Rick's Backstory In Season Five's Two-Episode Finale
The shocking Season 5 finale of Rick and Morty finally revealed the truth about Rick's tragic backstory as the first half of the series came to an end in last night's shocking double-episode cliffhanger.
Fans of Rick and Morty often spend more time theorizing and breaking down the series than they do watch it. This is due in part to the immense amount of detail packed into every adventure and the multiple storylines that have been teased with questions left unanswered.
Last night saw Season 5 come to an end in a jaw-dropping double-episode season finale that officially marks the halfway point of the ten-season Adult Swim show. With the multiple live-action promotions featuring Christopher Lloyd as the irresponsible grandfather released leading up to it, it was always clear that this would be a doozy of a finale.
Rick and Morty tackled two of the biggest unanswered questions in one swoop - Evil Morty and Rick's true and tragic backstory. There is far too much packed in for us to spoil for you here, but we highly recommend that anyone who likes the series immediately view the episodes before getting spoilers.
We will have a spoiler-filled breakdown for you soon, but in the meantime, you can view our exclusive chat with Summer Smith voice actress Spencer Grammer below!
Spencer Grammer is in the house! The actress and voice performer behind Rick & Morty's Summer Smith stops by the show to talk about the character now that she's voiced her for a decade! We dig deep into Summer's character arc and how a mixture of her own personality and the writing helped lend to that growth.
Discussing which characters she'd like to see re-visit the show, we shared plenty of laughs about Bucket Head, Snowball, Summer's ex, and more. We joke about a potential crossover where she finds her ex-boyfriend in the Solar Opposites wall and what dimension Summer would choose to visit with Rick's portal gun - The Neverending Story.
Talk turns to her father, Frasier and X-Men star Kelsey Grammer, and we discuss why he doesn't watch Rick and Morty, and we even cook up a jestful scheme that would see the actor play Summer's father from a different dimension, as Frasier. Spencer shares tidbits about her decade of experience with the show and makes it clear that she has no plans to leave the character of Summer behind, as well as talking to us about a few of her other projects.
Rick and Morty Season 5 is now available to stream on the Adult Swim app.
