It’s been just over a month since audiences were treated to the April Fools’s “non-prank” season 3 premiere episode of Rick and Morty. But since then, the folks at Adult Swim have been mostly radio silent in regards to the next episodes.
Fans anticipate any news on the plot or release date for Season 3 Episode 2 of Rick and Morty, which, according to the show’s official Twitter account, is entitled “Rickmancing the Stone.”
What we also know, other than the title, is that it will air sometime in the summer. This tidbit, revealed during a promo that premiered during the April Fools episode, “The Rickshank Redemption,” can be seen here:
Fans may infer the plot of the second episode from its title. Rick and Morty typically has plots that play on the title of the movie that the episode references.
“The Rickshank Redemption,” a play on The Shawshank Redemption, explored how Rick escaped from the Galactic Prison.
“Rickmancing the Stone” is undoubtedly a play on the 1984 movie, Romancing the Stone. The action-adventure film involves searching for a sister and an important gemstone. We can infer the next episode’s plot will mimic this in some way.
How Pickle Rick plays into this is still unclear.
In the meantime, keep a lookout for the Rickmobile.
This sweet ride is part of a promotional road trip called “Don’t Even Trip Road Trip.” This truck topped with a drooling Rick on his hands and knees is driving across the country. It will make a stop in most states, carrying Rick and Morty merchandise. You can see the Rickmobile tour list here.
