Cartoon Network still has not revealed the release date for season 3 of the hit “Rick and Morty” cartoon series. However, rumors surrounding its second episode already flood the internet.

One if the show’s main characters, Rick, will reportedly meet his true love. This is rumored to happen when season 3 debuts, according to a report from Korea Portal. The upcoming season’s second episode is titled “Rickmacing the Stone.”  With this, fans are speculating that it would involve the mad scientist finding his love ala the 1984 film “Romancing the Stone.”

The film, starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, saw the two main characters eventually fall in love with each other. Taking from the clue of the upcoming episode’s title, Rick could possibly meet someone who will have a romantic relationship with him. It could also be possible that some scenes from the film could be given homage in episode 2, Inverse reported.

In the past, “Rick and Morty” already used the same approach when it comes to some episode titles. The creators already used “The Lawnmower Dog” from Stephen King’s “Lawnmower Man” and “The Rickshank Redemption” based on the American drama film from 1994.

Furthermore, some speculate that Rick and Morty could get involved in some sort of conflict. This involvement could lead to a fight. This stems from a scene from season 3’s pilot episode, released last April 1, where Morty shot Rick in the head. In it, he also realized that the gun that he used was fake. Moreover, there are speculations saying Rick has not yet earned Morty’s complete trust

Meanwhile, the “Rick and Morty”-inspired mobile shop Rickmobile visited Newberry Street in Boston over the weekend. The mobile carries various kinds of merchandise based on the popular cartoon series on Adult Swim. These collectibles include shirts, hats, posters, and aluminum spaceships.

Its next stop is Philadelphia on May 23, Baltimore on May 24, and Falls Church on May 25.
