With less than just three weeks left, the hype train sure is choo-choo’ing away for a critically acclaimed animated television show "Rick and Morty". The promotions have not only been staggeringly vast for the past couple of months but strangely well-timed as well. This, added to the fact that the radio silence from Adult Swim and co-creator Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon prior to all the announcements helped in gathering a horde of new fans to the show. This ever-growing fandom has more reasons to cheer now, and right in time for Halloween too.

The naming ceremony

Just hours ago, the Twitterati was pleasantly surprised by official Adult Swim, revealing the titles for the first five episodes of the upcoming fourth season. A video was posted showing the names of the episodes in the following order: "Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Repeat", "The Old Man and the Seat", "One Crew Over the Crewcoo’s Morty", "Claw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim’s Morty", and "Rattlestar Ricklactica".

What one can immediately take away from this, aside from uncontrollable excitement, of course, is the titles are puns of titles and household names of popular culture as we’ve seen and enjoyed in the past seasons of "Rick and Morty".

The video revealing the episode itself takes a friendly jab at critically acclaimed Netflix show, "Stranger Things", as the latter has shown the trend of making public announcements on social media in such fashion.

Rick And Morty

References one can spot from the episode names are to the titles "Edge of Tomorrow/Live Die Repeat" of Tom Cruise, "The Old Man and the Sea" by Ernest Hemmingway, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest" of Jack Nicholson, "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," and of course, "Battlestar Galactica".

Fortune telling

Airing on November 10 at 11:30 PM, the return of the show promises fans a total of five out of the ten episodes for now.

The latter half of season four has been speculated to air next year. With the tea-party of cliffhangers that season three was, it is too early to know if the five announced episodes will provide resolve to any.

Questions lingering on everyone's minds as to Rick’s true nature, his cybernetic modding on self going too far, what Evil Morty will bring to the table, and most of all, what kind of transformation is Morty going through and where will this all lead him?

Notice how there is no mention of Jerry, until now, of course. Jerry is someone we all love to hate and is one of the most important characters of the show, so rest assured that he'll be there in this season too, albeit missing from the trailers.

Grab onto your treats and let's contemplate on the tricks that await us. Until then, Wubba-lubba-dub-dub.
