Did you really think Family Guy was going to permanently get rid of one of the shows most beloved characters? It turns out that the death of Brian was a message from the Family Guy staff and Seth MacFarlane.
MacFarlane tweeted shortly after the new episode aired explaining the reasoning behind their decision to kill off Brian.
First, he tweeted, “And thus endeth our warm, fuzzy holiday lesson: Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash.” Next MacFarlane tweeted, “I mean, you didn’t really think we’d kill off Brian, did you? Jesus, we’d have to be fucking high.”
