10. “The Rickshank Rickdemption” — Season 3, Episode 1
Season 2 ended with a pretty big cliff-hanger after Rick was sent to inter-galactic prison, seemingly without a plan on how he was going to escape this time. We were all waiting to find out what would happen next, when suddenly the episode unexpectedly — without announcement — dropped in mid March of 2017.
The surprise factor wasn’t the only reason we loved “The Rickshank Rickdemption.” Keeping true to Rick and Morty spirit, the episode featured twist after twist, only to reveal that Rick was really behind everything and had a plan the whole time. And let’s be real — who didn’t want to go out and try Szechuan Sauce after the way the episode ended.
