Family Guy Season 12 Episode 7, the FOX series' first installment since the shocking death of Brian, left little doubt that the beloved canine is gone for good.
Brian was even replaced in the opening credits. Gasp.
Family Guy Season 12 Episode 7 opened with Peter and Lois playing the show’s theme song in their living room, along with Chris, Meg and Stewie.
The Griffins' new dog, Vinny, then joined them.
By and large, this installment took on a much lighter tone than the previous one, as Peter and Quagmire became a successful musical duo ... obviously.
