Brian Lives! (Spoilers)

So as most fans were speculating, Seth MacFarlane did not keep Brian Griffin dead in case you missed last night’s episode of Family Guy entitled “Christmas Guy.” There were many conspiracy theories going around about if Brian would return and how it would happen. Well many fans guessed Brian’s return would have something to do with Stewie’s time machine. If you were one of the people who made this guess initially then congratulations, you were right.

In last night’s Christmas Guy episode of Family Guy, Stewie told a mall Santa Claus that his best friend Brian back for Christmas. Stewie burst into tears, and Santa was confused because he thought that Stewie wanted him to put a dead dog under his Christmas tree. Vinny the Dog winds up taking Stewie shopping for toys at the mall to cheer him up. While at the mall Stewie spots his past self, who traveled to the future to buy a Christmas toy. Stewie realizes that his time machine is in his past self’s backpack, so he has Vinny steal the backpack. Stewie then uses the time machine to travel to the past and saves Brian before he get hits by a car.

Seems like pretty predictable way to bring a character back (by using a time machine) but I guess that’s the good thing about animated TV shows. The most interesting part about all this is that Mr. Seth MacFarlane himself had a message for all the Family guy fans. After the episode aired he took to his twitter account and wrote the following message; “And thus endeth our warm, fuzzy holiday lesson: Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash.” A good lesson indeed especially in light of recent events of Paul Walker’s untimely death.
