Rick has plentiful enemies to fight this episode.

After over four months, the long wait for the second half of Rick and Morty's fourth season is over. Arriving during lockdown, the new episode, titled Never Ricking Morty, https://ecosystem.fi/wiki/Cristiano_Ronaldo_apos;s_Girlfriend_Braids_His_Hair_After_Football_Return actually references the coronavirus, joining the first wave of TV shows to reflect the current social distancing reality.

The episode, spoofing NeverEnding Story's title, is set on a train -- in space. The setting, as Rick notes, represents a literal story device, charting us on course for a breakneck-paced self-referential anthology episode.

Warning: This recap contains all the spoilers.

Rick's enemies

The episode begins on the space-train, where two travelers meet at the bar. One of them, who looks like an alien version of Wolverine, details how he fought Rick on his planet Ramamama (it sounds like it's spelled that way).


Everyone wants to kill Rick on the space-train.

The comic book hero-looking traveler is on the train in search of Rick to kill him. Everyone on the train, he says, is there to kill Rick. The other Clint Eastwood-looking traveler, who wears one of those short Wild West capes, questions this "weird leap in logic."

Visiting another section of the Rick-obsessed train, the space-cowboy encounters aliens who describe stories revealing how Rick saved "space-Christmas."

However, one involves Rick disappointing new character Goomby, a little, purple alien friend who helps Rick deliver presents to Morty and the Smith family but ultimately isn't invited to their festivities, instead left out in the freezing cold.

All of this is peeling back the layers on how personal this storyline is to Rick -- and how meta it is for the show.
