Rick and Morty has been powering through Season 6 of the series over the last month, and now fans have gotten the first look at what to expect next with the trailer for Episode 5 of the season! Season 6 has been exploring a new status quo for Rick and the Smith Family as now that he no longer can travel through portals and across dimensions with ease, Rick has been forced to stay put and go on more adventures with his family. This has led to some fun explorations into each member of the family, and an expansion of Rick's dynamic with them.
This seems to be the most apparent in how Rick acts with Jerry as it is with a much gentler type of nudge than seen in the first five seasons of the series. Season 6 has been teasing that Rick and Jerry have had a much different dynamic than seen in the series before, but it seems like we'll get to see that tested for sure as they team up for the next episode with Jerry working as Rick's "assistant." You can check out the trailer for Rick and Morty Season 6 Episode 5, "Final Desmithtation" below as spotted by @swimpedia on Twitter:
The trailer for "Final Desmithtation" sees Rick and Jerry infiltrating a generic Fortune 500 company, but it's unclear as to what the purpose could be. This ties into some of the previous trailers that showcased a Jerry in Morty's outfit that had been teaming with Rick (and revealed that Rick has fashioned his body with all sorts of upgraded technology, such as the scoping eye he uses at the beginning of the episode preview), but as seen with the other episodes so far, this is likely hiding the bigger twist of the episode until it airs.
Thankfully it won't be too much longer as "Final Desmithtation" is scheduled to premiere on Sunday, October 2nd at 11:00PM EST on Adult Swim. You can find the first seasons of Rick and Morty now streaming with Hulu and HBO Max, and can catch up with Season 6's episodes so far on Adult Swim's official website with a cable subscription. But you can also find the Season 6 premiere completely for free on YouTube for a little while longer.
