We're now well into the second half of Rick and Morty season 6 and, so far, we've been treated to a meta take on Full Metal Jacket and a classy send-up of 1990s goofball villains. This week's episode 9 – A Rick in King Mortur's Mort – promises yet more madcap antics. 

No spoilers, of course, but the makers of the show have released an intriguing episode 9 synopsis: "If Rick tells you not to do something, don't do it. Morty receives a gift from a random stranger on the street." Will episode 9 be the stuff of (Arthurian) legend? Tune in for more warped Rick and Morty adventures to find out!
