* WMG/FamilyGuyLifeOfBrian



Everything that he said to hate about him is true, but the more hypocritical parts could actually imply some jealousy towards him. He calls him out on hitting on Lois when he himself has done it, but Brian has been more successful to the point of marrying her in "The Perfect Castaway" while Quagmire's attempts always seem to fail. Pointing his failure as a father to Dylsn might be because it reminds him of his own failures to many more illegitimate children, and Brian was ultimately willing to help Dylan, making him somewhat better than him. Quagmire could have kept these feelings to himself before Brian's later preachiness and atheism caused him to become just as fed up with the fans about him and tell him what they think about his inflated ego.

[[folder:Theories about [[spoiler:Brian's death]]]]
An extra set of theories about events related to "Life of Brian". A number of these are now {{jossed}} due to [[spoiler:Brian's revival in "Christmas Guy"]].

[[WMG: Vinny is a convenient reincarnation of [[spoiler: Brian.]]]]
[[spoiler: He's only pretending to be an old dog who's been around the block, but when Brian died he was reborn in the body of another puppy, only savvier and smarter and less prickly than Brian had been. This is his second chance, he's like the older and more sensible Brian before he became a mouthpiece for Seth's political views.]]

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Stewie finds a way to fix his time machine and save Brian]]]]
[[spoiler: Not much of a stretch since Brian is appearing in an [[http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/10/29/family-guy-maya-rudolph-glenn-howerton/ upcoming episode]] so obviously he gets brought back at some point. My theory is that Stewie will reverse engineer the return-pad(which he forgot to destroy along with the time machine) so he can travel back in time. He's about to use it to save Brian, but hesitates when he realizes in doing so will mean that he won't meet Vinny, Vinny convinces him to go back for Brian and says he knows he and Stewie will meet again. So Stewie travels back in time and saves Brian after some more time-travel craziness, and in the final scene , Brian and Stewie run into Vinny (with his owner Leo still alive due to Stewie changing the past) at the park and he soon befriends them both]]
** JOSSED. Stewie revives Brian not by fixing the time machine, but [[spoiler:finding his past self in the present and taking his time pad instead.]]

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Quagmire is Brian's killer.]]]]
[[spoiler: Considering that he can't stand Brian and is the only one not paying attention to his funeral, he may be the driver or paid someone to do it. If one of the Griffins discovered this, [[WhatTheHellHero they'll call him out]] [[MoralEventHorizon and stated that he went too far in-universe.]] Perhaps, [[EvenEvilHasStandards even Peter and Lois will be horrified]] and say that Quagmire's NotSoDifferent from Jeff.]]
* Alternatively (or in addition), Quagmire will become Stewie's ArchEnemy.
* At the very least, I still think they should call him out for his behaviour at the funeral.
* [[spoiler:Now that Brian's back, we might have an attempted murder, thanks to Brian being GenreSavvy to avoid it. A murder mystery will follow.]]
* Peter did kill Quagmire's cat, James, a few seasons back. So killing his dog in return may have doubled as {{revenge}}.
** An alternative theory on the same theme. Remember Quagmire's other cat, Princepessa? Last seen in "Roads to Vegas", where Brian hires a hitman to kill her off. It is possible Quagmire found out who the hitman was working for and decided to avenge the death of his cat.
* Or, after killing Jeff with his car, Quagmire developed an interest to kill more of his enemies this way, starting with Brian.
** If someone told Quagmire that he's NotSoDifferent from Jeff may trigger his BerserkButton and attack them as well.

[[WMG: Quagmire will be framed for [[spoiler:Brian's death]]]]
In a series of events similar to "Stewie Kills Lois", friends and/or Stewie will discover evidence which makes it seem Quagmire was the one who [[spoiler:ran over Brian]] and call the authorities. But Peter refuses to believe one of his closest friends would betray him like this, so he sets off to find the true killer and clear Quagmire's name.

[[WMG: If Quagmire wasn't the murderer, it was...]]
* [[spoiler:Vinny]]
** On a drunken bender, [[spoiler:provoked by grief for the recently deceased Leo.]]
** Alternatively, [[spoiler: it was because Vinny was rushing a dying Leo to the hospital.]]
* [[spoiler:Brian/Stewie from the future]]
** [[spoiler:After learning that something terrible would happen to Brian in the future, and killing him beforehand was a more humane option.]]
** [[spoiler:Alternatively, it is Brian who is responsible for the bad future (either directly, or indirectly through his existence in that time)]]
** That DID look like Brian's car.
* [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow Cleveland Brown Jr.]]
** The same person who killed [[spoiler:original Cleveland Jr.]] and planned to do the same with Tim.
* A squirrel(s)
** [[KarmicDeath Karmic retribution]] for the squirrel that Brian ran over in the second Viewer Mail episode.
* Penelope
** She threatened to kill Brian before, but was stopped by Stewie
* The owner of the dog Brian killed in "Dog Gone"
* It may just be HarsherInHindsight, but Peter Griffin was "interviewed" in ''Series/TopGear'' magazine for the month of December, just before Brian's death. The picture illustrates him reading said issue of ''Top Gear'' magazine, while driving and not looking at the road, while Hammond, Clarkson, and May look on in horror from the back seat. [[http://metro.co.uk/2013/11/04/top-gear-does-peter-griffin-jeremy-clarkson-richard-hammond-and-james-may-get-family-guy-makeovers-4172028/ The proof is here.]]
** This cannot be true, for the following incredibly complicated and obscure reason: the car is the wrong color.

[[WMG: The Brian-centric titles are about Vinny.]]
[[spoiler: They'll be changed to be about Vinny, having been made to look like they're about Brian to avoid spoiling his death. Either that, or the episodes deal with the fallout of his death. (One episode could be about Dylan returning.)]]
** JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian's death was undone in "Christmas Guy".]]

[[WMG: Another character will be killed off and [[spoiler: Brian will be brought back]].]]
[[spoiler: Some of the upcoming episodes do seem to be about Brian, unless they're actually about Vinny and the titles were changed, but go with this for now. Killing Brian was a fake-out. He's not going to be dead permanently; he will be brought back and a different member of the main cast will be killed]].
* It could be Meg. Being a way too obvious choice, the only way to set us off track would be to kill someone else first. Someone nobody expected to die off (*cough* [[spoiler: Brian]]).
** Eh, personally my money's on Chris. It makes more sense from a writing and comedy standpoint. As it stands, Chris is just a younger version of Peter and doesn't bring anything new to the show. Meg is a ButtMonkey, but that's her role on the show. Treating her like crap is used as comedy.
* Partially confirmed. [[spoiler: Brian did come back to life, but no word on if someone else will die for real. Still possible---Chris and Meg are pretty much useless, and considering how much it hype it gave a show that to many, has been dead for years...]]

[[WMG: [[spoiler:Brian]] will come back as a ghost.]]
Given that supernatural elements exist in the WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy universe, it's possible. [[spoiler:Ghost Brian]] could be utilized to help people transition over to [[spoiler:Vinnie]], yet still not technically cop-out with [[spoiler:his death]] and [[AlasPoorScrappy appease the fan's desire to see him again.]] Perhaps he'll act as a spiritual advisor [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming helping Stewie deal with survivor's guilt]], and generally trying to fix the BigScrewedUpFamily that the Griffins have become. It would help redeem [[spoiler:Brian]] both [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap from whatever pieces of the scrappy heap he still stands on]] and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath turn him from a dick to a full-fledged nice guy]] [[EarnYourHappyEnding in a supernatural form of]] CharacterDevelopment. Plus there's a whole lot of FlatEarthAtheist jokes when you're a ghost. Which leads me to my next theory...
* JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian was prevented from ever dying in the Christmas Guy episode.]]

[[WMG: The next Brian and Stewie episode will take place [[spoiler:in the afterlife.]] ]]
It'll be called "Road to Heaven". The plot will be that Stewie, feeling depressed over [[spoiler:Brian's death, decides to tour throughout the afterlife to bring him back. Because let's face it, how awesome would it be to see [[EnfanteTerrible Stewie Griffin]] traverse [[RageAgainstTheHeavens Heaven]] and [[ToHellAndBack Hell?]] Bonus points if it's inspired by Literature/TheDivineComedy.]]
** JOSSED. [[spoiler: Brian's death was prevented in the Christmas Guy episode.]]

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian will return as if nothing has happened and this will be lampshaded in universe]]]]
[[spoiler: Brian will reappear in after a few episodes and Stewie will say "so we're just going to forget the fact you died, we went to your funeral and replaced you with another dog?", to which Brian will say "Yup" and the episode will end. Or at the end of the episode, Peter will turn to the camera and say "we brought Brian back."]]
* [[spoiler: The season finale "Brian the Closer" will reveal just how Stewie was able to resurrect him, who Brian's murderer was, and what happens to Vinny.]]
** JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian was saved from being hit by the car in the Christmas Guy episode.]]

[[WMG: Ernie the Giant Chicken [[spoiler: killed Brian]]]]
Think about it. The Giant Chicken got tired of losing those long battles with Peter, and was thinking of a way to get back. He then got an idea - he decided to hurt Peter not physically, but emotionally. How so? [[spoiler: By killing a member of his family]]. So the Giant Chicken watched the Griffins, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. And when that opportunity came, [[spoiler: He drove his car and deliberately ran over Brian, resulting in the latter's death. Brian's death was no accident - it was an act of revenge towards Peter.]]
* If he did [[spoiler: kill Brian]], he better get ready for [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown a serious beatdown]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge from Peter.]] [[KarmicDeath This may even kill him]].
** If Ernie is killed off, who will replace him? I know. A giant squirrel who would occasionally beat on Vinny (for [[CharacterizationMarchesOn character development]]).

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian will come back in the Christmas episode.]]]]

In the episode coming up, called "Christmas guy", the description is about [[spoiler: Stewie plotting to get the one thing he wants for Christmas, most likely Brian's revival.]] There are 2 ways this could work:

* In [[spoiler: Life of Brian, the episode where Brian dies, there was a canon cutaway gag with Stewie saying he time travelled forward in time to Christmas to get end of the year toys early.]] So, Present Stewie could wait until the Christmas guy episode and then go and find [[spoiler: his past self who travelled into the future and warn him about what would happen to Brian, so he could save him, since his time machine was still intact.]] Or.......
* Stewie could always [[spoiler: ask Santa Claus for the components required to make a new time machine, and go back in time to save Brian himself.]]
** CONFIRMED (closer to the first theory). Stewie found his past self and, with the help of Vinny, retrieved his return pad and saved Brian.

[[WMG: Brian [[spoiler:killed himself.]]]]
No idea why, but if you watch the now infamous scene where [[spoiler:he's hit by the car, notice the type of car it is. It's a prius, just like the car Brian himself owns.]]
* [[spoiler:Perhaps he was killed by a Brian from another time.]]
* [[spoiler:Or the machine that cloned an evil Stewie also cloned an evil Brian.]]
* [[spoiler: I figure the same thing, since it's very odd that they didn't reveal the killer or use a generic car model. Maybe he has to kill himself to prevent a time paradox.]]
* Brian used time travel [[spoiler:to kill himself in order to make sure he'd stay dead]]. After "Brian and Stewie", Stewie knows Brian has suicidal thoughts and even planned for this. He could easily stop Brian from a normal headshot, or time-travel. Solution? Plan an elaborate enough murder/suicide(murdercide?) that it would leave Stewie OutGambitted. The lack of the material to make a new time machine? Brian got that guy arrested for drawing Mohammed, or got him to draw it(probably in some dare). Brian didn't just plan to have sex with a Native American woman, but tell her and the rest on how to use the guns. Thus, it would motivate Stewie to destroy the time machine. "Back to the Pilot" was an aborted suicide plan; Brian likely was trying to enrage the EnfanteTerrible Pilot!Stewie to kill him. He changed his mind because he just realised "hey, I can do something much better like ''stop 9/11'' and make America a better place!". Stewie saving Brian made Brian happy because the sheer skill used in rescuing him showed people cared about his life."

[[WMG: [[Main/{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]] [[spoiler:killed Brian]]]]
Why you may ask? Because he didn't take too kindly on Brian having a similar appearance to him, tried to publish a book just like him, and there was also the fact they he dressed up like him once. He also tried to have him shot as a "Runner" in ''LogansRun''.

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian's return will be gradual.]]]]
[[spoiler: Obviously, he has to come back. However, to give his death some meaning, he'll spend some time as a recurring character (think of Agent Mulder in the latter seasons of the X-Files), having decided to WalkTheEarth, popping up for important episodes, while Vinny remains the main family dog. Then, after several seasons, the Status Quo will be returned.]]
* JOSSED. [[spoiler:He returns just two episodes after "Life of Brian"]].

[[WMG: Grief over [[spoiler: Brian's death]]]]

Will cause Stewie to go back to his original evil persona. A running theory is that Brian's friendship was part of what mellowed Stewie out. [[spoiler: With Brian gone]], Stewie will have a StartOfDarkness when he tracks down and ''brutally'' kills the driver. Followed by [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome one of the most epic scenes in television history.]]
-->'''Stewie:''' (''In a stoic tone'') Victory is '''mine'''.
** Somewhat true. Stewie's grief causes him to blow up half the neighbourhood, but he doesn't even realize what it's over.

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian's death]] will turn out to be AllJustADream.]]
I'm kind of surprised nobody's pointed this out yet but [[spoiler: the circumstances of Brian's death are remarkably similar to the "death" of Bobby Ewing on ''{{Series/Dallas}}'' (both of them getting hit by a car, then dying in the hospital after telling their families they love them). It seems pretty likely that they'll keep Vinnie around for a few episodes (or possibly even an entire season) before pulling TheReveal the same way ''Dallas'' did, essentially doing one of the longest [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] in television history.]]
** Somewhat JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian returned in the Christmas Guy episode]], but there's a theory the whole season could turn out to be a dream.

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian's killer will [[KarmaHoudini never be caught]]]]]]
Considering how GenreSavvy the characters are, they'll probably BreakTheFourthWall, [[HandWave saying that audience would stop]] caring about it.

[[WMG: Mayor West was killed off along with [[spoiler:Brian]]]]
During [[spoiler:Brian]]'s funeral, Mayor West said to everyone "''None of you people came to my funeral.''" before revealing he was a ghost by fading away. And he hasn't been seen again until "Mom's the Word" [[note]]except in the anthology episode "Grimm Job"[[/note]].
* A new theory: Mayor West was the one who ran over Brian (no idea why), followed by a crash which would lead to his own demise. Everyone found out he was the murderer and that's why they didn't come to his funeral.
* Even if "Christmas Guy" undid these deaths, it is possible that Stewie also somehow saved Mayor West by saving Brian.


[[WMG: Brian isn't dead, HesJustHiding]]
Some fans debate that Brian somehow faked his death and claim seeing him at his own funeral (although it was actually Jasper).
* But still, maybe Brian decided to pursue a new dream, which could only be accomplished if he were to leave the Griffins. So he swapped himself with a duplicate (like a clone or a Brian from another dimension), who would later [[spoiler:be hit by that car]], in fact driven by our own Brian. After this act, he would change his identity to further diminish the chances of anyone finding him.
* It makes sense. Being a dog, he couldn't just run away, otherwise they would put up Lost Dog posters and search for him.
** JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian's death was retconned in the Christmas Guy episode.]]

[[WMG: Death will eventually come to collect another member of the family, prompting [[spoiler:Brian to make a HeroicSacrifice]]]]
Stewie's prevention of [[spoiler:Brian's death]] will require an invoking of BalancingDeathsBooks in an upcoming episode. Bonus points if ''Stewie'' is the one Death tries to take with him, instead of Chris or Peter.

[[WMG: The car that killed Brian will return]]
It seems that whoever was driving that car was deliberately trying to kill America's favourite Martini-sipping pooch. To add more drama, we never got to see the driver. It only makes sense that in another episode (perhaps "Brian the Closer"), the car will come back to kill Brian or try, finally revealing who the driver is and the reason for this heinous act.

[[WMG: Brian will be killed again, but it will be different.]]
Thanks to Future Stewie having SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, Brian knows that he was hit by a car. While he doesn't know if it was intentional, Brian doesn't want to risk it. His solution? [[GenreSavvy Plan methods of resurrecting him!]] For example, he could put down all the times Stewie has travelled into the future, so when Present Stewie and Past Stewie interact, Present Stewie can warn him. This could lead to, as some suspect, they figure out that they have a murder case on their hands, and plan to go back in time to catch the criminal when planning it. As others suggest, Quagmire is the likeliest culprit. Having him as the murderer would help [[TakeThatScrappy get rid of him]] and possibly even making Quagmire Stewie's new arch-enemy.

[[WMG: Vinny will reintroduced into the cast]]
His time as the Griffin's dog was just to test the waters so to speak. He'll become the pet for Cleveland's family instead.
** Second theory JOSSED. The Browns are back in Quahog and Vinny isn't their pet.
*** NOT YET, at least.

[[WMG: Vinny [[spoiler:was hired by Quagmire to kill Brian]]]]
Quagmire probably hates Brian enough for him to die, but didn't want to do the job himself, seeing as it may risk the trust that the Griffins place in him. So he hires a hitman ([[spoiler:Vinny]]) to run Brian over. Then he pays Vinny to convince the Griffins into adopting him, so as to fill the void left by Brian's death and to help them move on.
* When Vinny first meets the Griffins, he is somehow aware that they are looking for a new dog. In "Christmas Guy", Vinny also says that he knows several things about Brian and even managed to pull off his famous "''whose leg do I have to hump to get a martini''" quote. This suggests he isn't what he seems.
** Given how Vinny helps [[spoiler:save]] Brian, this is either jossed or Vinny regretting what he did.
** The second theory isn't entirely impossible.

[[WMG: Dog Stewie from "Road the the Multiverse" [[spoiler:killed Brian]]]]
Following the death of Human Brian (also a hit-and-run), a broken-hearted Dog Stewie wanted to return the favour. The first attempt [[spoiler:to run over Brian]] was foiled when Stewie saved Brian from his fate. So it is obvious that Stewie will become a target to get to Brian (it could involve Brian making a HeroicSacrifice to save Stewie from the incoming car).

[[WMG: Creator/SethMacFarlane [[spoiler:killed Brian]]]]
* He somehow got into the Family Guy universe and [[spoiler:murdered Brian]] so that his show could have the highest publicity and possibly get an Emmy for the episode's dramatic scenes.
** He will return to [[spoiler:try to kill him again]], and the episode will be heavily hyped up with claims that [[spoiler:someone will actually be killed off forever and ever this time and will never, ever, EVER come back]]. He will be mortally wounded, his identity will be unmasked, he will cryptically explain his actions in his dying moments and the brief video memorial moment that reveals his name will include a request to the viewers to stop clapping.

[[WMG: Brian will die again, this time permanently]]
Ever since his revival, fans have complained that Brian has become an even bigger douche than before (in moments such as taking advantage of his son, and knowingly giving herpes to an oblivious Stewie and Chris). This is being done to make Brian as unlikeable as possible; so fans will [[TheScrappy lose every bit of sympathy left for him]]. So it won't be a big deal when he is killed off again. A number of fans are even starting to miss [[ReplacementScrappy Vinny]] too.
* And maybe Stewie will kill him. After reminding him that the only reason Brian is alive is because of him, Brian will continue to douche it up until Stewie decides that he doesn't deserve to live, and kills him quick and clean. Just to hammer it in, he'll then work out how to make the missing part of his time machine, then go back in time and stop himself from rescuing Brian to get rid of his and Chris' herpes.

[[WMG: Brian's death [[ManipulativeBastard was more insidious than we thought.]] ]]
Contrary to the above theory where they're making Brian unlikeable to kill him off, they killed him into the first place ''to get away with it!'' By killing off Brian in a brutal fashion, [[AlasPoorScrappy they'd make us sad that he's gone]] and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap we'd want them back]], especially by adding [[ReplacementScrappy Vinny.]] Their thought process was to abuse our concern and thus we'd tolerate Brian being a dick. There's a possibility this might go back further than we thought: ever since the TheReasonYouSuckSpeech delivered by Quagmire, they've been [[TakeThatScrappy beating Brian down]]. What if that's part of trying to make the jerky, glorified Brian [[CreatorsPet they adore]] seem like the lesser evil-and everything since "Jerome is the New Black" was part of this plan. This gives [[FridgeHorror a rather chilling and cynical view on the writers:]] they either honestly [[ObliviouslyEvil don't get]] or don't care about our complaints, and think they can buy us with an ultimatum. Why do you think they YankTheDogsChain in "Seahorse Seashell Party?" [[AesopAmnesia If this theory is correct, it's because they never learn just why we complain.]] Which means that their plan was faulty from the start, since they forgot a vital part of storytelling: [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy If both of our choices suck, we won't want to choose.]] Note that this is mainly the idea of the "Life of Brian" review by WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter.
* [[CaptainObvious Well, duh!]]

[[WMG: If Brian were to die a second time, it will correlate to "Stewie Is Enceinte"]]
The episode in question is slated to be about Stewie being pregnant with Brian's baby. Assuming the baby will be a puppy, he will be Brian's replacement when his father dies (most likely in an episode afterwards).

[[WMG: Brian's death, revival and they hype surrounding it was a thinly veiled cry for help from Seth MacFarlane.]]
As stated above, there are a few theories pointing to the possibility of MacFarlane having some form of clinical depression as evidenced with his AuthorAvatar showing occasional suicidal tendencies. In "Life Of Brian," said character is brutally killed in an effort to wring the viewer for every drop of empathy they might have left for him, and his revival comes with [[AnAesop the moral "Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash"]], [[FridgeHorror which could just as easily be interpreted as "You'll all be sorry when I'm gone!"]]

[[WMG: Brian would've/will die prematurely anyway.]]
The movie showed Brian in Heaven after getting into garbage and eating some chocolate. While it could just be how Heaven works, Brian isn't any older looking there than now-and if he ate chocolate, it wouldn't be a natural death. All getting run over did was shave off a year or so-[[FridgeHorror so Death's statement of seeing them very soon is still very accurate.]]

[[WMG: [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad Stan Smith]] killed Brian.]]
He's had an experience with time travel, and the CIA has a time machine. At some point they became aware of Brian and Stewie screwing around with time travel, especially after "Back to the Pilot." To prevent history from being changed, the CIA first framed Stewie's supplier with a drawing of Mohammed. They would've just gone to Brian's house and smash the machine, but Stewie managed to do it for them. Finally, to prevent them ever trying to rebuild a time machine, they hired Stan to run Brian over. Why? Stan has experience with the field of time travel, and admits that his favourite dog is Brian Griffin, so there's plausible deniability.

So why wasn't Stewie targeted? Simply put, they didn't think a baby was responsible for building a time machine. Having brain-switching technology, Brian's intellect and personality could be explained as a consequence of brain-switching tech instead of the actual reason([[RuleOfFunny being part of an animated sitcom.]]) There hasn't been any example of brain switching with babies, so they never noticed. "Stewie" could just be Brian's code name. Once they found where he lived, they decided that the opinionated ultra-liberal was the most likely to not only invent a time machine, but use it against them. So they ran him over.

[[WMG: If they ever spoof the prequels, Jar-Jar will be killed off moments after appearing.]]
Because every possible joke about how much Jar-Jar sucks has been told. So, they'll just cut him out of the story.

[[http://metro.co.uk/2013/11/04/top-gear-does-peter-griffin-jeremy-clarkson-richard-hammond-and-james-may-get-family-guy-makeovers-4172028/ The proof is here.]]
** This cannot be true, for the following incredibly complicated and obscure reason: the car is the wrong color.

[[WMG: The Brian-centric titles are about Vinny.]]
[[spoiler: They'll be changed to be about Vinny, having been made to look like they're about Brian to avoid spoiling his death. Either that, or the episodes deal with the fallout of his death. (One episode could be about Dylan returning.)]]
** JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian's death was undone in "Christmas Guy".]]

[[WMG: Another character will be killed off and [[spoiler: Brian will be brought back]].]]
[[spoiler: Some of the upcoming episodes do seem to be about Brian, unless they're actually about Vinny and the titles were changed, but go with this for now. Killing Brian was a fake-out. He's not going to be dead permanently; he will be brought back and a different member of the main cast will be killed]].
* It could be Meg. Being a way too obvious choice, the only way to set us off track would be to kill someone else first. Someone nobody expected to die off (*cough* [[spoiler: Brian]]).
** Eh, personally my money's on Chris. It makes more sense from a writing and comedy standpoint. As it stands, Chris is just a younger version of Peter and doesn't bring anything new to the show. Meg is a ButtMonkey, but that's her role on the show. Treating her like crap is used as comedy.
* Partially confirmed. [[spoiler: Brian did come back to life, but no word on if someone else will die for real. Still possible---Chris and Meg are pretty much useless, and considering how much it hype it gave a show that to many, has been dead for years...]]

[[WMG: [[spoiler:Brian]] will come back as a ghost.]]
Given that supernatural elements exist in the WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy universe, it's possible. [[spoiler:Ghost Brian]] could be utilized to help people transition over to [[spoiler:Vinnie]], yet still not technically cop-out with [[spoiler:his death]] and [[AlasPoorScrappy appease the fan's desire to see him again.]] Perhaps he'll act as a spiritual advisor [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming helping Stewie deal with survivor's guilt]], and generally trying to fix the BigScrewedUpFamily that the Griffins have become. It would help redeem [[spoiler:Brian]] both [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap from whatever pieces of the scrappy heap he still stands on]] and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath turn him from a dick to a full-fledged nice guy]] [[EarnYourHappyEnding in a supernatural form of]] CharacterDevelopment. Plus there's a whole lot of FlatEarthAtheist jokes when you're a ghost. Which leads me to my next theory...
* JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian was prevented from ever dying in the Christmas Guy episode.]]

[[WMG: The next Brian and Stewie episode will take place [[spoiler:in the afterlife.]] ]]
It'll be called "Road to Heaven". The plot will be that Stewie, feeling depressed over [[spoiler:Brian's death, decides to tour throughout the afterlife to bring him back. Because let's face it, how awesome would it be to see [[EnfanteTerrible Stewie Griffin]] traverse [[RageAgainstTheHeavens Heaven]] and [[ToHellAndBack Hell?]] Bonus points if it's inspired by Literature/TheDivineComedy.]]
** JOSSED. [[spoiler: Brian's death was prevented in the Christmas Guy episode.]]

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian will return as if nothing has happened and this will be lampshaded in universe]]]]
[[spoiler: Brian will reappear in after a few episodes and Stewie will say "so we're just going to forget the fact you died, we went to your funeral and replaced you with another dog?", to which Brian will say "Yup" and the episode will end. Or at the end of the episode, Peter will turn to the camera and say "we brought Brian back."]]
* [[spoiler: The season finale "Brian the Closer" will reveal just how Stewie was able to resurrect him, who Brian's murderer was, and what happens to Vinny.]]
** JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian was saved from
clue being hit by the car in the Christmas Guy episode.]]

[[WMG: Ernie the Giant Chicken [[spoiler: killed Brian]]]]
Think about it. The Giant Chicken got tired
beginning of losing those long battles with Peter, and was thinking of a way to get back. He then got an idea - he decided to hurt Peter not physically, but emotionally. How so? [[spoiler: By killing a member of his family]]. So the Giant Chicken watched the Griffins, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. And when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rB_VUVUA_QI this trailer]]. Also, Seth MacFarlane replied on Twitter that opportunity came, [[spoiler: He drove his car and deliberately ran over Brian, resulting in the latter's death. Brian's death was no accident - it was an act of revenge towards Peter.]]
* If he did [[spoiler: kill Brian]], he better get ready for [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown a serious beatdown]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge from Peter.]] [[KarmicDeath This may even kill him]].
** If Ernie is killed off, who will replace him? I know. A giant squirrel who would occasionally beat on Vinny (for [[CharacterizationMarchesOn character development]]).

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian will come back in the Christmas episode.]]]]

In the episode coming up, called "Christmas guy", the description is about [[spoiler: Stewie plotting to get the one thing he wants for Christmas, most likely Brian's revival.]] There are 2 ways this could work:

* In [[spoiler: Life of Brian, the episode where Brian dies, there was a canon cutaway gag with Stewie saying he time travelled forward in time to Christmas to get end of the year toys early.]] So, Present Stewie could wait until the Christmas guy episode and then go and find [[spoiler: his past self who travelled into the future and warn him about what would happen to Brian, so he could save him, since his time machine was still intact.]] Or.......
* Stewie could always [[spoiler: ask Santa Claus for the components required to make a new time machine, and go back in time to save Brian himself.]]
** CONFIRMED (closer to the first theory). Stewie found his past self and, with the help of Vinny, retrieved his return pad and saved Brian.

[[WMG: Brian [[spoiler:killed himself.]]]]
No idea why, but if you watch the now infamous scene where [[spoiler:he's hit by the car, notice the type of car it is. It's a prius, just like the car Brian himself owns.]]
* [[spoiler:Perhaps he was killed by a Brian from another time.]]
* [[spoiler:Or the machine that cloned an evil Stewie also cloned an evil Brian.]]
* [[spoiler: I figure the same thing, since it's very odd that they didn't reveal the killer or use a generic car model. Maybe he has to kill himself to prevent a time paradox.]]
* Brian used time travel [[spoiler:to kill himself in order to make sure he'd stay dead]]. After "Brian and Stewie", Stewie knows Brian has suicidal thoughts and even planned for this. He could easily stop Brian from a normal headshot, or time-travel. Solution? Plan an elaborate enough murder/suicide(murdercide?) that it would leave Stewie OutGambitted. The lack of the material to make a new time machine? Brian got that guy arrested for drawing Mohammed, or got him to draw it(probably in some dare). Brian didn't just plan to have sex with a Native American woman, but tell her and the rest on how to use the guns. Thus, it would motivate Stewie to destroy the time machine. "Back to the Pilot" was an aborted suicide plan; Brian likely was trying to enrage the EnfanteTerrible Pilot!Stewie to kill him. He changed his mind because he just realised "hey, I can do something much better like ''stop 9/11'' and make America a better place!". Stewie saving Brian made Brian happy because the sheer skill used in rescuing him showed people cared about his life."

[[WMG: [[Main/{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]] [[spoiler:killed Brian]]]]
Why you may ask? Because he didn't take too kindly on Brian having a similar appearance to him, tried to publish a book just like him, and there was also the fact they he dressed up like him once. He also tried to have him shot as a "Runner" in ''LogansRun''.

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian's return will be gradual.]]]]
[[spoiler: Obviously, he has to come back. However, to give his death some meaning, he'll spend some time as a recurring character (think of Agent Mulder in the latter seasons of the X-Files), having decided to WalkTheEarth, popping up for important episodes, while Vinny remains the main family dog. Then, after several seasons, the Status Quo will be returned.]]
* JOSSED. [[spoiler:He returns just two episodes after "Life of Brian"]].

[[WMG: Grief over [[spoiler: Brian's death]]]]

Will cause Stewie to go back to his original evil persona. A running theory is that Brian's friendship was part of what mellowed Stewie out. [[spoiler: With Brian gone]], Stewie will have a StartOfDarkness when he tracks down and ''brutally'' kills the driver. Followed by [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome one of the most epic scenes in television history.]]
-->'''Stewie:''' (''In a stoic tone'') Victory is '''mine'''.
** Somewhat true. Stewie's grief causes him to blow up half the neighbourhood, but he doesn't even realize what it's over.

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian's death]] will turn out to be AllJustADream.]]
I'm kind of surprised nobody's pointed this out yet but [[spoiler: the circumstances of Brian's death are remarkably similar to the "death" of Bobby Ewing on ''{{Series/Dallas}}'' (both of them getting hit by a car, then dying in the hospital after telling their families they love them). It seems pretty likely that they'll keep Vinnie around for a few episodes (or possibly even an entire season) before pulling TheReveal the same way ''Dallas'' did, essentially doing one of the longest [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] in television history.]]
** Somewhat JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian returned in the Christmas Guy episode]], but there's a theory the whole season could turn out to be a dream.

[[WMG: [[spoiler: Brian's killer will [[KarmaHoudini never be caught]]]]]]
Considering how GenreSavvy the characters are, they'll probably BreakTheFourthWall, [[HandWave saying that audience would stop]] caring about it.

[[WMG: Mayor West was killed off along with [[spoiler:Brian]]]]
During [[spoiler:Brian]]'s funeral, Mayor West said to everyone "''None of you people came to my funeral.''" before revealing he was a ghost by fading away. And he hasn't been seen again until "Mom's the Word" [[note]]except in the anthology episode "Grimm Job"[[/note]].
* A new theory: Mayor West was the one who ran over Brian (no idea why), followed by a crash which would lead to his own demise. Everyone found out he was the murderer and that's why they didn't come to his funeral.
* Even if "Christmas Guy" undid these deaths, it is possible that Stewie also somehow saved Mayor West by saving Brian.


[[WMG: Brian isn't dead, HesJustHiding]]
Some fans debate that Brian somehow faked his death and claim seeing him at his own funeral (although it was actually Jasper).
* But still, maybe Brian decided to pursue a new dream, which could only be accomplished if he were to leave the Griffins. So he swapped himself with a duplicate (like a clone or a Brian from another dimension), who would later [[spoiler:be hit by that car]], in fact driven by our own Brian. After this act, he would change his identity to further diminish the chances of anyone finding him.
* It makes sense. Being a dog, he couldn't just run away, otherwise they would put up Lost Dog posters and search for him.
** JOSSED. [[spoiler:Brian's death was retconned in the Christmas Guy episode.]]

[[WMG: Death will eventually come to collect another member of the family, prompting [[spoiler:Brian to make a HeroicSacrifice]]]]
Stewie's prevention of [[spoiler:Brian's death]] will require an invoking of BalancingDeathsBooks in an upcoming episode. Bonus points if ''Stewie'' is the one Death tries to take with him, instead of Chris or Peter.

[[WMG: The car that killed Brian will return]]
It seems that whoever was driving that car was deliberately trying to kill America's favourite Martini-sipping pooch. To add more drama, we never got to see the driver. It only makes sense that in another episode (perhaps "Brian the Closer"), the car will come back to kill Brian or try, finally revealing who the driver is and the reason for this heinous act.

[[WMG: Brian will be killed again, but it will be different.]]
Thanks to Future Stewie having SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, Brian knows that he was hit by a car. While he doesn't know if it was intentional, Brian doesn't want to risk it. His solution? [[GenreSavvy Plan methods of resurrecting him!]] For example, he could put down all the times Stewie has travelled into the future, so when Present Stewie and Past Stewie interact, Present Stewie can warn him. This could lead to, as some suspect, they figure out that they have a murder case on their hands, and plan to go back in time to catch the criminal when planning it. As others suggest, Quagmire is the likeliest culprit. Having him as the murderer would help [[TakeThatScrappy get rid of him]] and possibly even making Quagmire Stewie's new arch-enemy.

[[WMG: Vinny will reintroduced into the cast]]
His time as the Griffin's dog was just to test the waters so to speak. He'll become the pet for Cleveland's family instead.
** Second theory JOSSED. The Browns are back in Quahog and Vinny isn't their pet.
*** NOT YET, at least.

[[WMG: Vinny [[spoiler:was hired by Quagmire to kill Brian]]]]
Quagmire probably hates Brian enough for him to die, but didn't want to do the job himself, seeing as it may risk the trust that the Griffins place in him. So he hires a hitman ([[spoiler:Vinny]]) to run Brian over. Then he pays Vinny to convince the Griffins into adopting him, so as to fill the void left by Brian's death and to help them move on.
* When Vinny first meets the Griffins, he is somehow aware that they are looking for a new dog. In "Christmas Guy", Vinny also says that he knows several things about Brian and even managed to pull off his famous "''whose leg do I have to hump to get a martini''" quote. This suggests he isn't what he seems.
** Given how Vinny helps [[spoiler:save]] Brian, this is either jossed or Vinny regretting what he did.
** The second theory isn't entirely impossible.

[[WMG: Dog Stewie from "Road the the Multiverse" [[spoiler:killed Brian]]]]
Following the death of Human Brian (also a hit-and-run), a broken-hearted Dog Stewie wanted to return the favour. The first attempt [[spoiler:to run over Brian]] was foiled when Stewie saved Brian from his fate. So it is obvious that Stewie will become a target to get to Brian (it could involve Brian making a HeroicSacrifice to save Stewie from the incoming car).

[[WMG: Creator/SethMacFarlane [[spoiler:killed Brian]]]]
* He somehow got into
the Family Guy universe and [[spoiler:murdered Brian]] so that his show could have the highest publicity and possibly get an Emmy for the episode's dramatic scenes.
** He will return to [[spoiler:try to kill him again]], and the episode will be heavily hyped up with claims that [[spoiler:someone will actually be killed off forever and ever this time and will never, ever, EVER come back]]. He will be mortally wounded, his identity will be unmasked, he will cryptically explain his actions in his dying moments and the brief video memorial moment that reveals his name will include a request to the viewers to stop clapping.

[[WMG: Brian will die again, this time permanently]]
Ever since his revival, fans have complained that Brian has become an even bigger douche than before (in moments such as taking advantage of his son, and knowingly giving herpes to an oblivious Stewie and Chris). This is being done to make Brian as unlikeable as possible; so fans will [[TheScrappy lose every bit of sympathy left for him]]. So it won't be a big deal when he is killed off again. A number of fans are even starting to miss [[ReplacementScrappy Vinny]] too.
* And maybe Stewie will kill him. After reminding him that the only reason Brian is alive is because of him, Brian will continue to douche it up until Stewie decides that he doesn't deserve to live, and kills him quick and clean. Just to hammer it in, he'll then work out how to make the missing part of his time machine, then go back in time and stop himself from rescuing Brian to get rid of his and Chris' herpes.

[[WMG: Brian's death [[ManipulativeBastard was more insidious than we thought.]] ]]
Contrary to the above theory where they're making Brian unlikeable to kill him off, they killed him into the first place ''to get away with it!'' By killing off Brian in a brutal fashion, [[AlasPoorScrappy they'd make us sad that he's gone]] and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap we'd want them back]], especially by adding [[ReplacementScrappy Vinny.]] Their thought process was to abuse our concern and thus we'd tolerate Brian being a dick. There's a possibility this might go back further than we thought: ever since the TheReasonYouSuckSpeech delivered by Quagmire, they've been [[TakeThatScrappy beating Brian down]]. What if that's part of trying to make the jerky, glorified Brian [[CreatorsPet they adore]] seem like the lesser evil-and everything since "Jerome is the New Black" was part of this plan. This gives [[FridgeHorror a rather chilling and cynical view on the writers:]] they either honestly [[ObliviouslyEvil don't get]] or don't care about our complaints, and think they can buy us with an ultimatum. Why do you think they YankTheDogsChain in "Seahorse Seashell Party?" [[AesopAmnesia If this theory is correct, it's because they never learn just why we complain.]] Which means that their plan was faulty from the start, since they forgot a vital part of storytelling: [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy If both of our choices suck, we won't want to choose.]] Note that this is mainly the idea of the "Life of Brian" review by WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter.
* [[CaptainObvious Well, duh!]]

[[WMG: If Brian were to die a second time, it will correlate to "Stewie Is Enceinte"]]
The episode in question is slated to be about Stewie being pregnant with Brian's baby. Assuming the baby will be a puppy, he will be Brian's replacement when his father dies (most likely in an episode afterwards).

[[WMG: Brian's death, revival and they hype surrounding it was a thinly veiled cry for help from Seth MacFarlane.]]
As stated above, there are a few theories pointing to the possibility of MacFarlane having some form of clinical depression as evidenced with his AuthorAvatar showing occasional suicidal tendencies. In "Life Of Brian," said character is brutally killed in an effort to wring the viewer for every drop of empathy they might have left for him, and his revival comes with [[AnAesop the moral "Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash"]], [[FridgeHorror which could just as easily be interpreted as "You'll all be sorry when I'm gone!"]]

[[WMG: Brian would've/will die prematurely anyway.]]
The
movie showed Brian in Heaven after getting into garbage and eating some chocolate. While it could just would be how Heaven works, Brian isn't any older looking there than now-and if he ate chocolate, it wouldn't be a natural death. All getting run over did was shave off a year or so-[[FridgeHorror so Death's statement of seeing them very soon is still very accurate.]]

[[WMG: [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad Stan Smith]] killed Brian.]]
He's had an experience with time travel, and the CIA has a time machine. At some point they became aware of Brian and Stewie screwing around with time travel, especially after "Back to the Pilot." To prevent history from being changed, the CIA first framed Stewie's supplier with a drawing of Mohammed. They would've just gone to Brian's house and smash the machine, but Stewie managed to do it for them. Finally, to prevent them ever trying to rebuild a time machine, they hired Stan to run Brian over. Why? Stan has experience with the field of time travel, and admits that his favourite dog is Brian Griffin, so there's plausible deniability.

So why wasn't Stewie targeted? Simply put, they didn't think a baby was responsible for building a time machine. Having brain-switching technology, Brian's intellect and personality could be explained as a consequence of brain-switching tech instead of the actual reason([[RuleOfFunny being part of an animated sitcom.]]) There hasn't been any example of brain switching with babies, so they never noticed. "Stewie" could just be Brian's code name. Once they found where he lived, they decided that the opinionated ultra-liberal was the most likely to not only invent a time machine, but use it against them. So they ran him over.

[[WMG: If they ever spoof the prequels, Jar-Jar will be killed off moments after appearing.]]
Because every possible joke about how much Jar-Jar sucks has been told. So, they'll just cut him out of the story.

**Another possible reason besides what he already established: Quagmire might also have secretly figured out that ''he'' stole the trophy all those years ago. Sure it was out of some kind of instinct, but it still caused a lot of trouble.

[[WMG: Quagmire is also jealous of Brian (at least in some areas).]]
Everything that he said to hate about him is true, but the more hypocritical parts could actually imply some jealousy towards him. He calls him out on hitting on Lois when he himself has done it, but Brian has been more successful to the point of marrying her in "The Perfect Castaway" while Quagmire's attempts always seem to fail. Pointing his failure as a father to Dylsn might be because it reminds him of his own failures to many more illegitimate children, and Brian was ultimately willing to help Dylan, making him somewhat better than him. Quagmire could have kept these feelings to himself before Brian's later preachiness and atheism caused him to become just as fed up with the fans about him and tell him what they think about his inflated ego.

Due to making news about how Lois was in a porno Joyce Kinney will be fired after airing her expose on Lois because not only was her news story lacking of news value but due to the fact that it was also meant to only humiliate and embarrass someone whom she had a grudge against it would expose Quahog 5 News to a huge libel lawsuit to boot.
