The fifth season of Rick and Morty begins with Beth and Jerry in a surprisingly good time, “a place of positive sex”, as Chris Parnell tells Digital Spy. “It’s fun to see the relationship change, evolve and grow,” he continues, and that’s true, but maybe even die-hard fans couldn’t have accurately predicted how Jerry in particular would “grow” this season.
‘Mort Dinner Rick Andre’ presents us with a much more sexual version of the couple than we have seen before, to the chagrin of their children. So when Mr. Nimbus, aka The King of the Ocean, asks if they’re up for a threesome, Beth and Jerry really consider it.
Even the potential “death by orgasm” cited by the starfish paperwork doesn’t scare them for long. And while Morty’s story ends up taking center stage, Beth and Jerry briefly return at the end discussing safe words near Nimbus, ready to get schwifties.
