"And Then There Were Fewer", the season opener, is a murder mystery that ends with Lois held at gunpoint by the killer, news reporter Diane Simmons. Peter walks in, completely oblivious as to what's going on, asking his wife where his Hot Wheels firetruck is. Lois, looking to tip Peter off by acting unconventionally, but not enough to tip off Simmons, refers to her husband as "Pete', something she's never done in their 20 years of marriage. Peter, being Peter, misses this completely.
"German Guy" features a man calling himself "Franz Gutentag" posing as a puppeteer who turns out to be a former Nazi concentration camp official actually named Franz Schlechtnacht . Upon being discovered, Franz leads Peter and Chris to his basement to murder them. Chris takes the gun from Franz, but inexplicably faced with the dilemma as to whether or not he should shoot his father or Franz, questioning which one is his "real father", despite the fact that Peter and Franz look nothing alike. As a test, Chris asks them when is his birthday; when Peter (Chris' own father!)fails to give the correct answer but Franz does not, Chris shoots Peter, causing Franz to reclaim the gun retake the two as hostages.
