Rick And Morty Leaked Episode Confirms What Fans Secretly Feared

Contains spoilers for "Rick and Morty" Season 5, Episodes 4 and 7

The fifth season of "Rick and Morty" has mostly been popular with fans, but a few recent episodes don't seem to live up to the quality of the others, according to some. This includes the fourth episode of the season, "Rickdependence Spray," which many thought was a little too gross even for "Rick and Morty" standards.

If you haven't seen these episodes yet, here's what the controversial storyline entails: it all starts with Morty (Justin Roiland) masturbating into a horse semen collector, with Rick (Roiland), unaware of his grandson's dirty deed, using the semen to develop a bioweapon. However, since it contains human DNA, it blows up, creating giant, sentient, man-eating sperm that threatens to take over the planet. Still unaware the sperm is Morty's, the U.S. government takes an egg from his sister, Summer (Spencer Grammer), and makes it giant, hoping to lure the sperm for an attack. Rick and Morty save the day, but shortly after, one sperm makes it to the egg, creating a giant "incest baby" which is then hurtled into space.

Hey — we did say it was gross. However, since most "Rick and Morty" episodes tend to be self-contained, it was reasonable to think that the gross implications of the "Rickdependence Spray," especially its ending, wouldn't ever come up in the show again. Sadly, thanks to a recent leak, we now know that isn't true.

An upcoming episode of Rick and Morty will see the return of Morty and Summer's 'incest baby'

As reported by Cinema Blend, Amazon Prime Video in Canada made a blunder, accidentally releasing episode 7, "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion," when it should have released episode four. The service quickly rectified the mistake, but of course, the Internet worked faster, and the episode leaked online.

The episode, parodied after the cult classic anime "Neon Genesis Evangelion," sees the Smith family pilot giant mechs to dispel some threat. However, it also sees the return of the same incest baby from episode 4, which won't be welcome to fans who were grossed out by the concept and wanted to move on from it. According to Cinema Blend, the baby will be named Naruto, carrying on the anime theme of the episode. Whether we like it or not, it does seem that we'll have to contend with the fact that the biological child of Morty and Summer could be a recurring character.

New episodes of "Rick and Morty" air Sundays at 11pm on Adult Swim.
