Rick and Morty is back with season five where the grandson-and-grandfather duo is once again up to no good. The Adult Swim and E4 animated sci-fi sitcom returned this week for series five, episode three, A Rickconvient Mort. In this episode, Morty found himself a new girlfriend in Planetina.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Rick and Morty.
How was A Rickconvenient Mort originally going to end?
Morty met superheroine Planetina after she was created by the Tina-Teers using the four elemental rings of Fire, Water, Dirt and Air.
He quickly fell head over heels for her and the feelings were mutual so when they were asked about how they knew one another on a live news channel, Morty said they were a couple.
The pair went on romantic dates and things seemed to be going well until she took a dark turn.
Rather than a superhero, Planetina became a villain and murdered 300 people by burning down mines with workers inside.
Morty watched on in horror, helpless and fearful of his new girlfriend.
He came to the decision that they should no longer be together and Morty broke up with her.
Planetina flew away upset and he was left heartbroken, being comforted by his mum Beth in a touching moment.
According to the show’s creators, there was an alternative ending originally planned for this episode.
Following Rick and Morty airing its latest episode on Adult Swim, Inside The Episode was released, giving fans more of an insight into its creation.
Writer Rob Schrab said: “At first it was going to be Morty getting his heart broken for the first time.
“But it wasn’t until Dan [Harmon] said ‘no, this is a story about Morty breaking somebody’s heart’.
Harmon explained: “I thought it would be the biggest mistake in the world to end an episode like that with her dumping him.”

Rick and Morty’s co-creator continued: “Yes love ends in tragedy but it would have been too easy to be cynical and ‘oh love isn’t real’.
Director Juan Meza-Leon added: “Morty was going through a growth and a loss.
“And we tried to capture that in trying to treat it as an actual dramatic story”.
But going by the description for episode four, it will be back to the duo’s normal weird and wonderful adventures.
Season five, episode four is going to be called Rickdependence Spray.
The episode will air on Sunday, July 11, on Adult Swim and Monday, July 12, on E4 for those in the UK.
The synopsis reads: “A failed experiment by Rick creates monsters that threaten the entire country as well as himself.”
Rick and Morty is available to watch on Adult Swim.
