And here we go: the end of this arc is here when you watch Rick and Morty season 6 episode 10 online tonight. We’re curious how much this episode will tilt in the meta direction. While this series can do lore and meta at the same time, this is the Rick and Morty season 6 finale, and we sort of expect something bigger than what's been teased.

Rick and Morty season 6 episode 10 title, time and channel

Rick and Morty season 6 episode 10 "Ricktional Mortpoon's Rickmas Mortcation" is scheduled to air today (Sunday, Dec. 11) at 11 p.m. ET.
It's on Cartoon Network, during the AdultSwim block.

In the two promos for the episode we've seen, we've learn two things about the episode. First, Rick plays Santa in the family Christmas (wherein Jerry reminds us that he's boring, and Rick reminds us we don't know if Space Beth or Beth is the real Beth).

Then, there's a second clip that popped up online that showed Rick's garage lair has at least 15 floors beneath it. And one has a neat little sushi spot inside.

Rick and Morty season 6 episode 10 is titled "Ricktional Mortpoon's Rickmas Mortcation," a reference to National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. This is the final episode of the season.

So, here's everything you need to know to watch Rick and Morty season 6 episode 10 online, and check out the aforementioned preview for the new episode:
