‘Rick and Morty’, simply put, is an ineffable show. It deals with aspects of existentialism and has been touted as a detailed look at nihilism. We are introduced to characters who have to face the cosmic terror of the meaninglessness of their own existence, as they seem to live in a universe where the concept of a higher power does not exist. As a reaction to this cosmic terror, some individuals act out and go on maddening adventures, trying to fill some lack, while others remain blissfully unaware, choosing to ignore the potential enormity of cosmic terror itself.
The show, as we all know, has set new benchmarks in storytelling. After three successful seasons, that were appreciated by both critics and audiences, season 4 made its way to tv screens on November 10, 2019 (Read the review of the premiere episode right here.)

Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 1 Recap:
The first episode of ‘Rick and Morty’ Season 4 has been titled “Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Repeat”. It sees Rick and Morty off on a new adventure to collect death crystals from a distant planet. However, Rick realizes that he now needs to get Morty’s consent before dragging him off to potentially deadly adventures. The death crystals allow people to see how they will die, but their actions during their lifetime can change the outcome of the crystals. Morty sees himself dying with his beloved Jessica when he is old.
The vision possesses Morty, who is fixated upon making sure that nothing messes up the future. However, he steals one of the crystals and accidentally kills Rick, further refusing to clone his grandfather back to existence. However, Rick’s emergency protocol, ‘Operation Phoenix’, is successful in cloning Rick, but in a fascist dystopia. Rick dies a couple of times in the first episode, which lives up to the title. He keeps coming back, in a fascist shrimp-people world, and one where there are fascist teddy bears. By the fourth rebirth, he is out of the fascist nightmare and is born as wasp-people.
Meanwhile, Morty’s adventure with the crystal lands him in trouble with the law, but he beats the case. Moreover, when Jessica, in the present, invites Morty to go skinny dipping with her, he refuses, for fear it will jeopardize their future together. He is so caught up in the idea of having Jessica in the future that he does not appreciate her in the present. He also manages to transform himself into a massive entity of darkness.
Rick manages to save the day as the wasp-person, a hologram, and his original self. Finally, Rick and Morty come to an understanding that sometimes they will embark on mad adventures, while at other times, they might not do anything at all.
