When faced with the recent dreary Christmas horror offerings of the past year or two, we felt nothing but apathy. Which is a terrible position to be in when you’re looking for a holiday episode idea.
But fear not! Or rather—Fear No Mort—the season seven finale of Rick and Morty is pretty great.
It sticks the landing on an overall decent season that could’ve been much worse. But it’s smart, funny and brings up a lot of themes that we’ve spent years covering: the nature of fear, creativity in mass entertainment, hypersanity, really all of the hits.
So sit back, and enjoy the last few days of 2023 with your favorite parasocial conversationalists.
