Rick and Morty season 5 episode 2 time and channel

Episode 2 of Rick and Morty season 5 — titled "Mortyplicity" — goes live at 11 p.m. today (Sunday, June 27).
It's on Cartoon Network, during the AdultSwim block.

It's time to watch Rick and Morty season 5 episode 2, continuing the rich tradition of giving us a schwifty treat before the weekend ends. Speaking of standing between things, fate and Rick continued to separate Morty from happiness last week, as a space-time gateway and Rick's visiting nemesis halted Morty from his date with Jessica. Isn't that how it always works with family?

So, how will Morty do in season 5's remaining 9 episodes, as it looks like he's getting more and more fed up with Rick's way of disrupting his life. Well, it looks like Rick's the one getting things turned on his head again, as someone seems to be hunting the world's most reckless grandfather down (or so he says). The early trailer suggests that an uninvited guest is there to make life bad for Rick.

Will this be connected to last week's war of the Hooves? Every time Morty walked into that reality, much more time had passed, to the point where an entire race seems to want Morty dead.

That said, we're more ready to expect clones. The season 5 episode 2 title "Mortyplicity" says a lot if you ask us, referencing the 1996 Michael Keaton movie where the star cloned himself to carry out all of his own obligations. Remember Space Beth? 

We wonder if there's a Space Morty who could have a message for our Morty, about how good life could be without Rick. Or maybe Morty's the one cloning himself so he can try again with Jessica.
