Family Guy promised a significant death this fall, and Sunday, it delivered.
Sadly, and incredibly, Brian died in Family Guy Season 12 Episode 6.
Seth MacFarlane and the Fox series' writers not only went there, but they also dismantled Stewie's time machine so he can't go and rescue his friend.
Stewie even replaced poor Brian with Vinnie. It was a lot to take in.
