After more than two years of waiting, Rick and Morty returns to Adult Swim for its fourth season on Sunday, November 10th. Since its premiere in 2013, the animated comedy has captivated fans with its hilarious dialogue and crazy adventures. But there are also a few moments that will haunt Rick and Morty fans forever, including whether Beth is a clone or not. Now that the release date for Season 4 is coming, everyone is wondering if the question will ever be resolved. And it seems that creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have finally answered the call – or that fans have ruthlessly teased with an unconfirmed spoiler. Your choice.
[Spoilers for Rick and Morty Seasons 3-5 coming!]
Why do fans think Beth is a clone of Rick and Morty?
For those of you who may not remember "ABC's of Beth" in Rick and Morty Season 3, Rick proposes to create an exact copy of Beth, memories and all. In the end, the clone would give Beth the freedom to go on her own adventures to "wander the infinite cosmos". In the meantime, the clone Beth would stay home and live her everyday, mundane life with her family.
At the end of the episode, the fans are not 100% on Beth's decision. The matriarch Smith apparently returns to his family with open arms. However, she frantically calls Rick at the end of the episode and asks her if she is the clone. Rick says that's the real deal.
However, Beth wonders if Rick would tell her if she was Beth's copy. And Rick does not say exactly no. He says that she is "very much" her daughter. But once Beth is reassured, Rick asks her if she is just pretending to be convinced, because if she becomes aware of herself, he should fire her. Yuck.
Is Beth a clone of 'Rick and Morty'?
Whatever the case may be, the Adult Swim series continues and fans have formulated their own theories. But now, as Rick and Morty The season 4 begins, the subject was again approached by actors and actors of the series.
Spencer Grammer [Summer's voice] and Sarah Chalke [Beth's voice] joined Harmony and Roiland to talk about what would happen in the fourth season. And more specifically, the last episode of the season.
"The final of season 4 is really good," said Roiland. "We become canonical, we get serial publications."
Meanwhile, Grammer hinted that something big would come for Beth in the Rick and Morty Season 4 finale. "Yes, she had good characters," Gammer said, hitting Chalke's leg.
"Hey, it's easy there. You have said too much, warns Roiland.
And just when you thought you were done, Harmon intervened. "Beth is a clone", the Rick and Morty creator says. But was Harmon hanging out? The world might never know it.

It does not matter what happens to Beth Rick and Morty, the fourth season seems to organize quite well. Always in conversation with Variety, actors and creators of the series confirmed "more Poopy Butthole" and a "tribute" to the film. Extraterrestrial. They also delved into Glootie, which was introduced to Rick and MortyThe Comic-Con panel in July.
According to Harmon, Glootie was born when the network "needed the name of a character" for Comic-Con. However, Glootie can be more important than it seems.
"Jerry, against Rick's instructions, decides to develop an app with Glootie and all hell breaks loose in this episode," Roiland said. "Glootie is a very important character. He is an intern from Rick who really wants to develop an application. "
Harmon added, "Glootie comes from an alien species that looks like a post-application species. They have mastered the art of the application and use it to enslave … "
Roiland then cut Harmon, noting that his co-creator was revealing too much. However, Roiland also hinted that Glootie would be operated by Rick – just like a real trainee.
"You can sort of say that Rick somehow exploits this little character," Roiland said. "He knows the most important game, you know," as long as I do not develop his app, I ask a guy to make copies, prepare me to eat and bring my syrup. "
Actors and creators refer to Rick and Morty, season 5
In May 2018, Rick and Morty has been renewed for another 70 episodes. Of course, this leaves the creators with the space they need to plan.
"I think it's liberating because we have so many ideas and bleed every season," Roiland told Entertainment Tonight Canada.
And there seems to be solid plans for Rick and Morty Season 5 is already in place. In the interview with Variety, Harmon spoiled the upcoming season will incorporate Star Trek in a way. Meanwhile, Grammer and Roiland alluded to a "tag" in season 4 that will lead to something big in season 5.
"I'm obsessed with this tag. I can not literally stop thinking about this tag that you do not know, "said Grammer. "It may be my favorite speech. It's so good. Because then the answer … it's so good.
"We have a tag in Season 4 that will tease some sh * t in Season 5," added Roiland.
Although all the spoilers of the fifth season are exciting, we still have to get through Rick and Morty Season 4. But frankly, it will not be a problem. Do not forget to tie yourself for the ride.
"I'll say it," Roiland said. "Season 4 of Rick and Morty is the only season to experience thrills in a roller coaster. "
