Rick and Morty fans did not expect to see one certain character return in the newest episode of Season 5! The fifth season of the series has been a fairly surprising one as each episode has been dramatically different from one another. So different that beyond a few small character threads tying each adventure together, there has really been no sense of canon in the fifth season thus far. That's all changed with Episode 7, "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion" as it tied directly with the events of the fourth episode of the season.
The fourth episode of the series, "Rickdependence Spray" was the oddest in the season yet as even the writer behind the episode deemed it "disgusting and tasteless" as it ended with Morty's now alive sperm fertilizing an egg of Summer's that was blown to an explosive size by the United States government. But even with all of that said, the baby actually made a return in Episode 7.
After making several allusions to the "giant incest baby" floating around in space throughout the episode, Morty and Summer's giant child made a surprise appearance at the end of the episode. Not only is it named Naruto Smith, but it's a fun confirmation that the events of the season have all been directly linked to one another outside of the decoy episode earlier in the season.
