Brian Griffin Coming Back To Life On ‘Family Guy’ Christmas Episode?

Wipe your tears, ‘Family Guy’ fans! New evidence suggests we’ll be seeing Brian again in a matter of weeks.

Anyone up for a Christmas miracle? Just weeks after the controversial death of Family Guy‘s Brian Griffin, it sounds like we might be seeing America’s favorite atheist pooch again really soon! Fueling speculation that Brian’s passing was merely a publicity stunt, the official description for the Dec. 15 episode — cryptic as it may be — strongly suggests that Brian (Seth MacFarlane) will be returning to the land of the living.

On the Christmas episode, “Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas,” according to the official description from Fox. And, as pointed out by Entertainment Weekly, the network lists Brian as a character on the episode.

Another indicator that Brian will be back for good is that several episodes this season feature his name in their titles.

Did Vinny Kill Brian?

Even if Brian does return, one question remains: What’s going to happen to Vinny, the dog who quickly replaced Brian after his untimely demise? Tony Sirico, who voices the character, recently signed on to do six episodes, suggesting Vinny will be sticking around even after Brian comes back.

A popular theory floating around the internet is that Vinny, or his owner, was driving the car that hit and killed Brian. There was, after all, a time lapse between Brian’s death and Vinny’s adoption.

Regardless of whether or not that theory turns out to be true, I can’t wait to see what goes down between the two dogs once Brian returns. For Vinny’s sake, let’s hope his stay with the Griffin family ends better than “New” Brian’s did.

HollywoodLifers, are you surprised to learn that Brian will be back soon? Drop a comment with your thoughts on his death… and return.

Family Guy The Quest For Stuff Hack

Posted at 4:22 PM on May 6, 2014  

Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon
but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
