Why Brian Griffin Isn’t Truly Dead And Will Be Coming Back Soon

Fan of Family Guy or not, by now you’ve probably heard the news that the Griffin’s beloved dog Brian is dead..

Let’s take a moment…

And we’re back!

Here are the reasons why we believe Brian isn’t dead, at least not for good.

Clue 1:

The beginning of the episode mirrored Back to the Future.

[Spoiler Alert!] Dr. Brown doesn’t actually die

 Clue 2:

The car that hits Brian is completely opaque. Who’s the driver you may ask? I’m calling it right now, it’s the Griffin’s new unlikable dog Vinny.

Why? Vinny went through some pain himself having lost his own owner, and wanted what Brian had.

Clue 3:

In this same episode, Stewie actually tells Brian that he traveled forward in time ahead to Christmas to buy himself a toy when it came out before destroying the time machine.

The way I believe he will be brought back is mourning Stewie will go to the same toy store on Christmas and tell time traveling Stewie what happens. The rest of the episode will revolve around preventing the accident that happens to Brian. I also think we will either see that Vinny is the one who kills Brian or things will go back to normal and Stewie will pass Vinny and of course Vinny won’t recognize him but Stewie will give him a hug and thank him or something.

Clue 4:

Clue 4 isn’t even a clue, it’s the classic coke conspiracy


When Coca-Cola came out with New Coke they received a ton of negative press, in fact  had Twitter been around back then I can almost guarantee #bringbackclassic would have trended just as #bringbackbrian has.

You can’t pay for publicity like this. Killing off a beloved character and saying there is no way he’s coming back seems crazy but in fact is a genius publicity stunt. I along with many others would not be talking about Family Guy right now had they not done that. Vinny is new coke. Next season or sooner they will bring back Brian classic and receive another wave of press with fans raving in praise.

Fans may think them having #bringbackbrian trending on Twitter or buying Brian plushies, pencil sharpeners, and socks will show those Family Guy creators that they demand Brian back, but don’t be fooled my little ones he will be back regardless.
