Peter Griffin is always cracking jokes, but we can’t help but be worried about this one: Stewie is dead! Yes, that’s what he said on the Nov. 16 episode. Could he really be serious?! Plus, are Peter and Lois getting divorced?
The Nov. 16 episode of Family Guy ended on a shocking note. In the episode’s final moments, Peter Griffin said that Stewie died! Given the immense popularity of Stewie’s character, we’re in awe that the show would go there. However, they have killed off a popular character before, and revived him. But could this death be permanent?!
‘Family Guy’: Is Stewie Dead?
“Four years later, Lois and I got divorced and Stewie died,” Peter said during the episode. “Goodnight!”
Goodnight?! You don’t just end on a note like that, Peter Griffin!

During Thanksgiving dinner, the turkey exploded and the family started laughing uncontrollably. That’s when Peter’s voiceover started to deliver the shocking news. Granted, it was just a premonition, but we know how those go down. (Remember Final Destination?!)
Will Stewie really be leaving in Family Guy future?! Let’s hope not!
Brian Griffin: Brought Back From The Dead After Backlash
One of the main reasons why we’re so scared that Peter’s premonition might be true is because the show has killed off a major character before in previous episodes.
Brian was hit by a car and Stewie was unable to save him.
Fans completely lost it after the episode. Due to fan backlash, Brian was revived!
Creator and star Seth MacFarlane revealed in an interview that he would never kill again after the intense fan outrage. “Would I do it again? No,” Seth said. “We already did it.”
Whew. That’s a big relief. However, could he go back on his word? This would be epic in terms of shock factor.
We’ll just have to tune in to next week’s episode to (possibly) find out! Family Guy airs Sundays at 9/8c.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Stewie is really dead!? Let us know!
