Quahog is a purgatory and the characters are all ghosts facing punishment for sins in their lives.This is the theory, you know how Family Guy got more mean-spirited as the series went on, well this is all because the characters are dead, and they are trying to make for crimes they've commited while they were alive, here are some examples: Peter: an uncaring, neglectful bastard of a parent, could explain his behavior towards Meg, and he would also plagiarize famous works. Lois: A hooker who gave more time to earning the next buck rather then her family and friends, and once gave a homeless man suicide pills, over time she began to take an interest in Peter, and eventually they married. Meg:(Takes cover from rocks being thrown at him): A vain, snobbish, rich yet beautiful woman who'd use her money to get what she wanted, may explain why she's ugly, and why she's the butt of so many jokes. Chris: An A* level college professor who would abuse his students by bragging at them over how much more intelligent he is then they are every time one of them failed a test, Chris' punishment was to perpetually be an idiotic, childish teenager. Stewie: A Blofeld-esque super villain, even after his death, he still hasn't learnt his lesson, though he begun to form a friendship with Brian. Brian: An criminally ungenerous citizen who hated the poor, and wrote bullshit poetry, Brian is the only who made up for his past crimes, and as a result he is the one who watches over the Griffins, he has formed a friendship with Stewie.
The cast's recent behavior towards Meg is because of her behavior throughout seasons 1-5.I don't have anything against Meg or anything, but I developed a reason why Meg was treated as shit. At first I thought it was a mix of Seasonal Rot and Flanderization, but I remembered that in Seasons 1,2, & 3, she was a Bratty Teenage Daughter of massive proportions, she gets agitated of Chris just for filling her space, she uses her baby brother to gain a job to get money to buy a fancy purse that people in her school has, and she actually wants to kill herself when a video of her and Mort kissing each other became live. Everytime, and I do mean everytime, she falls for a guy she goes extreme methods to get their attention (trying to rape Brian for example), so her family thought by neglecting her, Meg would stop being spoiled. Her attempt to rape Brian however was probably the last straw, and while she didn't get arrested for it, her family likely try to get revenge on Meg by abusing her over the smallest things, telling her to shut up and stuff. Quagmire is an exception since he hates Brian, and he apparently lusts over Meg, Cleveland didn't give a damn, and Joe didn't have proof that Meg raped Brian so, being a Dirty Cop as he is, he thinks that Meg being mistreated by her family for an eternity would be a sufficient enough punishment for her. All of this make Meg's Reason You Suck Speech to her family in Seahorse Seashell Party and possibly her woobie status seem a bit iffy.
The Griffin who will be Killed Off for Real is...Right, bear with me here, this took some serious sleuthing. I'll start by listing the Griffins and how likely they are to be killed off. Peter: Could be killed in a moment of Laser-Guided Karma, possibly by Meg after crossing the Moral Event Horizon. But, given he's the main character, I doubt that he would be able to commit an act of such evil, let alone be killed for it. Lois: Could be killed by Stewie (accidentally or deliberately) which could lead to a good Character Arc for him as he now has no purpose in life. However, I don't think that could happen, as Meg: On the surface, the most likely character to be killed off, as it might give everyone else heaps of Character Development, realising how they treated her cruelly in life. However the character is liked for being The Woobie and I think she'd more deserve a happy ending. Chris: Too generic to have any proper Character Development and could be killed off very easily. Brian: Despite being one half of the show's Spotlight-Stealing Squad, his death could give Stewie some character development, as he will be depressed now that his best friend is dead. Jasper could possibly serve as his replacement, although given he's somewhat hated, I doubt they'd promote him to regular cast member. Stewie: Despite being one half of the show's Spotlight-Stealing Squad, his death could be an interesting prospect. Bonus points if he comes back as a ghost and possesses a recurring cast member... However the summary for the Simpsons crossover episode says that Peter, Lois, Meg and Stewie will still be alive for the episode. So that means the Griffin that will be killed off will be either Chris or Brian. Simples.
There will be a movie that deconstructs the entire series.The Simpsons have a movie that has Homer exiled from Springfield for dumping a silo into a lake, and it's about time Peter gets his own just desserts. To summarize, Peter will screw up so bad that his Karma Houdinis will be lampshaded and he'll be sent to jail (probably by Joe, to further show his fall from grace), for real this time. Meg will abandon her family for all the crap she had to endure. Chris' mental retardation will give him low self-esteem and will be sent to a mental hospital. Lois will call out Peter for everything he put everyone through and divorce with him to be with another man. Brian becomes a drunk loser who can't get a girlfriend, and Stewie will commit one of the biggest Moral Event Horizons in Family Guy history to prove/remind both the characters and audience that, despite all his Pet the Dog moments, at heart he is a genuine villain who only does good deeds because it benefits him.
Connie's dislike of Meg is all because of Lois.It was recently revealed that much like Connie, Lois was an Alpha Bitch during her High School days, i assume, that, back then, Connie's mom and/or dad was her most common victim, and as a result, not knowing how Meg's home situation is, she picks on Meg to get revenge on Lois for the days when Lois used to pick on her parents, all because she is Lois' daughter.
A theory on how Brian came to develop NPD.Brian started out as a reasonable dog who was only occasionally discriminated against but has presently become, by every definition of the word, a complete narcissist. One theory about how Narcissistic Personality Disorder develops is that a person subconsciously victimizes themselves more than in reality. I.E., Brian kept telling himself that dogs like him are lower-class and often treated it like racial profiling. As a defense mechanism, Brian became self-important and pretentious. Everything he does is, at the end of the day, just to get Brian more attention. He has been snapping more and more frequently and anyone who so much as offers a slightly different opinion, a classic symptom of NPD, and seems blind to other people's emotions and feelings.
Lois, at one point in her life, looked exactly like Meg.Think about it. In one Season Three cutaway, in the episode "Lethal Weapons", it is revealed that Lois, when she was a younger girl, was a hideously gargantuan, monosyllabic, violent she-hulk of a person. It's also revealed as a throwaway in one episode, that, without her makeup, she's not as beautiful as she typically is. So, we might have a Francine Smith situation- drop-dead gorgeous when she's wearing her makeup, and, without it. as hideously unkempt as Meg is made out to be.
Thelma Griffin's (Peter's mom) maiden name is actually Griffin.Therefore all of the ancestors that Peter talks about who all inexplicably look exactly like him are Thelma's ancestors, not Francis's. This would explain the family resemblance. This troper's maternal grandparents both have the same last name of Martin (grandmother from North Carolina, grandfather from Ohio), so why couldn't Thelma and Francis have had the same last name as well? It's improbable, but definitely not impossible.
Lois' brother Patrick is going to appear in a future episode.
When the whole evil clone appeared
Seth MacFarlane reads TV tropes.If you think about it, some of the complaints the show responds to are right here on this website.
The episode "Brian & Stewie" was Seth McFarlane's cry for helpIn the episode Brian say's that he has considered suicide and even goes as far as keeping a gun in a safety deposit box to kill himself if things ever got to bad also with this consider all the hatred Brian's character has gotten. Now consider that Brian has always been a Author Avatar for Seth McFarlane and this seems to get rather dark. During this time his mother was suffering from a long battle with cancer this combined with only accidentally surviving the 9/11 bombings may show that Seth is actually in a deep repressed depression which could connote suicidal thoughts
The recent political episodes are stealthily attacking atheistsThink about it. Brian is constantly taking closed-minded atheism Up to Eleven attacking and mocking any form of religious beliefs with blatant and admitted hatred. Ordinarily, this would be nothing more than a show famous for making rape jokes trying to make a serious political message, but God and Jesus are both characters in the show. Brian, the Straw Atheist, is stubbornly denying something that's right in front of his eyes. The show has actually been mocking atheism all along.
The writers are using Brian to make fun of Seth.MacFarlane himself doesn't seem to be responsible for Brian's status as perceived Author Avatar. Rather, the other writers are just using him as a medium for for taking shots at him. Or hell, they could be doing this even if Seth IS responsible for it.
Peter is a wizard/God.The world seems to bend to Peter's will, and he and others he likes to have close to him suffer no consequences for their actions. He is immortal, which could explain how he exists in just about every time period, and he can reset continuity at any time(such as grievous injuries or deaths that he suffers). Or it's all just a giant joke on the part of the writers.
The Griffins are cursedSomehow, the whole family has been cursed. Peter gets dumber and Megs gets uglier (or rather, she's cursed to be perceived as ugly). My guess is that its some sort of reality-warping machine Stewie made to take over the world, but its going out of control.
Connie D'Mico sees Meg as a threat to her popularityYou would think on why Connie would be so mean to Meg, as if to keep her in her place, as she is really quite beautiful especially if Meg got rid of the hat and glasses.
Peter used a Death Note in "Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater" to kill Aunt MaguariteA sudden heart attack and Peter dropping the "Careful what you wish for" line? He obviously did it.
Lois gets money from her father, Mr Pewterschmidt, to offset the financial crunches of Peter's schemesBecause the Hinden-Peter, the Peter-Copter, and various other schemes of his probably drained the Griffin family savings long ago. And because Carter would use the opportunity to rub it in Lois's face.
Stewie is Light YagamiTaking the above Death Note guess as truth, Stewie steals the Death Note from Peter. He doesn't use it at first; either he cannot yet read and write, or he knows that, as a baby, he could get away with killing people without the note and not get caught. Sometime after the series ends, he kills his entire family with the Death Note and then passes the death note around enough to lose his memory of the killings. Before the amnesia, he arranges with a Shinigami, probably Ryuk, to drop the note in a certain place in the future. He then uses the time machine he invented to go back in time to Japan in the mid-1980s, where he is adopted by the Yagami family. A few years down the line, a teenage Stewie picks up the Death Note with no memory of his life with the Griffins and uses it to try to conquer the world.
The entire family was slowly replaced with evil counterpartsThink about it. As the series went on, they all suddenly became bigger and bigger jerks. The only explanation is that the entire cast was replaced with evil duplicates. Now, it's entirely possible that Brian and Meg haven't been replaced, but have just gone mad from the sudden change in their friends and family (Brian not as much so, but to some extent). The question is why. The answer is, it's to open a gate way to allow the entire evil version of the universe through to our side; in the evil universe, no one gives a crap, and it's even worse then ours! The evil counterparts intend to replace everyone. Why wasn't Meg replaced? Remember the episode that was a Poltergeist reference? The original Meg is a gate to their world! They first sent Evil Peter as the scout because Meg must become more and more depressed to allow them all to come through. Thus, Peter was the first to go through huge changes in character! Stewie was so evil originally that his "evil counterpart" is a good counterpart (more or less). Any episode where anyone else is kind to Meg is a plot to give her hope...so they can destroy it and make her more depressed than ever.
Incest explains it allThe family is a mess of inbreeding. This is why Peter's ancestors all look the same. There's horrible incest jokes all the time...but to this family, this is normal. All but Stewie have normal shaped heads. And Brian...is just another one of the kids...but he's furry because of ten generations of a family tree that doesn't fork.
Michael Moore has become a writer on the show.Just look at the number of jabs the show's made at conservatives. Also note how the only gag made about Michael Moore is only a long fart joke instead of a jab at his beliefs.
Brian is/was a human.Two options:
Brian and his cousin Jasper carry a gene that causes their human qualitiesThe gene in question must be recessive, since Brian's mother and siblings (see Road to Rhode Island) have dog personality traits.
Seth hates Conway TwittyOr he hates us by subjecting us to a five minute-long performance.
This show, not Spongebob Squarepants, is the real life "Wacky Deli". Seth wanted to have the show end with "Lois kills Stewie", but Executives won't let him.So what does he do? Give a five minute long song (The infamous Conway Twitty), have a lot of "non-jokes" (too many to put here), and finaly, when all else fails, he uses the show to give out his own opinions (420, not all dogs go to heaven). With less and less jokes each episode.
Peter's ancestors look nothing like him or his family.Peter doesn't have a very good imagination, so instead of coming up with original faces for the characters in these stories, he just puts the faces and characteristics of people he knows.
Meg is going to beat up everyone in the last episode.We know that Seth has a history of setting up extremely long running gags, such as the chicken fights in each season. We also know he loves to have massive fights animated, especially if he can get any of the Griffins involved. Also, we know that his given explanation on why Meg has become the Butt Monkey of the series is BS (MacFarlane claims he cannot write teen girls well, yet did a decent job with Meg's run on the first series, and does well with Haley in American Dad).
Meg and Stewie will team up for revenge in the last episode.When Stewie realizes the family(sans Meg) did nothing to help his head injury (and tried to cover it up,and ran him over),it will restore his matricidal tendencies as well as create patricidal ones.The Griffins will still not have learned their lesson from when Meg did snap,causing her to snap again-only permanent.Meg shall kill Peter and Lois for Stewie,and Stewie will make another universe-traveling device. Why? They can already break the fourth wall,so they know Family Guy is a TV Show. Guess which universe and TV company they'll go to next? It wouldn't be out of the field to assume he's planning something, mainly having Meg snap and just beat up everyone in the series. When Fox cancels the series, he'll have one last episode in which (most likely) Peter insults her hat or something inauspicious like that, sending Meg into a fury and causing her to pretty much go on a rampage in Quahog for the rest of the episode.
Meg will soon cease being the ButtmonkeyThe Griffins know where this led them,and don't want to repeat it boke and tsukkomi team. Not to mention all the Ho Yay. I wouldn't be surprised if Haruhi was involved somehow...
Seth MacFarlane secretly hates Family Guy and is intentionally amping up his obnoxious political commentary to get himself out of the contractHe's deliberately trying to sabotage his work so that he doesn't have to do any more, since he's bankrupted all his good ideas and more than a few of his bad ones.
Going with the "Meg will beat everyone up in the Last Episode" Theory, the Last Episode (Arc?) will involve the cast trying to stop Meg from bringing about the End of the World as We Know ItI haven't really watched the latter half of the show, but I still saw enough to see Meg becoming the Butt Monkey of the show, so here goes: Sometime during the time corresponding to the 5th-8th seasons of Family Guy, an Eldritch Abomination somehow took interest in Quahog (and the poor treatment of Meg in particular). Although this Eldritch Abomination cannot go into the world of the Mortals, it can still influence the actions of people. Thus, it began to corrupt the Griffins until it became a living Hell for Meg To drive here to the point of Unstoppable Rage. In the near future of the show, something (what it is I cannot know) finally pushes Meg over the edge and the frustration, hatred and anger in her would finally allow her to be possessed by it. Being possessed would give her incredible strength and she would start an unstoppable rampage, destroying everything in her path. If all goes well, she would finally be stopped (possibly by being killed?). At the very worst, the negative emotions would feed the abomination to the point that Meg would be even more powerful, the end result possibly ranging from in a Type 0 Catastrophe (the destruction of the East Coast) to a class 5 Catastrophe (the annihilation of life on Earth). The episode (arc?) would involve the cast trying to stop Meg from being possessed, or if they're too late, trying to find a way to destroy the Eldritch Abomination. The episode would end with the only surviving(?) character (Who? I don't know) about to face off with the Eldritch Abomination who possessed Meg in the first place, before the show cuts to the credits. The DVD would contain an Easter Egg which consists of the two Alternate Endings:One where the Eldritch Abomination is defeated, but at a great cost to at least Quahog. In the other one, The Eldritch Abomination wins, and possessed Meg brings about the End of Days.
Brian's son is a Half-Human HybridAnd that's why he aged so fast. Brian has a son that's 13 years old, while he is only 7. "The're dog years." Which means that even though Brian's son looks fully human, he still has some of Brian's canine DNA. So he looks like a human, but ages at the rate of a dog. In human years, Brian's son is only a year old, or less.
Family Guy is the single most brilliant post-modernist reflection of societies obsession with and worship of pop culture.Making it a show so intelligent it can't be summed up without five or more long words.
Quagmire and Meg will end up sleeping together as soon as she turns eighteen (if Mayor West doesn't come of her first, of course).He's shown an interest more than once, she's treated so horribly that she'll happily latch onto anyone who shows her kindness and had no problem sleeping with older men; the only reason it hasn't already happened is that he suddenly starts caring about her being a legal adult when it comes to his best friend's daughter.
Da Boom is canonAll following episodes are schizophrenic delusions (they seemed pretty unhinged by the "Left Foot, Right Foot!" sing song) due to trauma. The period when the show was canceled was a brief period of time when the family had come to terms with their grief, however they eventually slipped back into their dream world. The Flanderization and Seasonal Rot is due to their memories of life before the blast fading away, i.e Meg's Butt Monkey status in the later seasons is the result of her exaggerated, patchy recollections of the mild Middle Child Syndrome (an alternative possibility is that she's subconsciously punishing herself some acts of brutality she committed to survive) she suffered in the early years. The constant pop culture references are their attempts to hold on to things once precious to them, and The Cleveland Show is their minds attempt to atone for their indirect responsibility for his death by giving him the ideal life. The reason they don't age is because they are trying to recapture their former lives.
Everyone will get hit with the mother of all karmic retributions in the last episodeExcept Meg, who has taken enough shit from them. In the series finale all the bad karma they've built up throughout the years is going to be unleashed. We thought they were just going to get away with all that shit, they won't.
Lois is actually British and hasn't told anyoneWhen children begin to speak they usually tend to take on their mother's language/dialect over anyone else's since they feel a stronger bond to her (one episode proves that even Stewie feels something for Lois other than an insane urge to kill). So why is it that Stewie has a British accent when everyone else has an "American accent"? It's because Lois actually has a British accent, but stopped using it many years ago in an attempt to fit in better. Somewhere along the line Stewie picked this up (possibly while still in the womb, where he could've heard her talking in her real voice while alone, which IS actually possible by the way) and ended up with her accent.
All 3 kids are adopted and all evidence contrary is fakeSomething that doesn't fit the above WMG is that Meg and Chris don't sound like either of Lois' accents. This leads to an alternate theory that Lois and Peter aren't really their parents and they aquired them through unknown means. They then told them about past incidents (complete with cut-aways) that didn't actually happen so the kids would believe that they're really Griffins.
Stewie is actually Older Than They Look: with special bonus GuessStewie has that disease that makes you look younger than you really are (do not bother pointing out that that was practically a word for word quote from The Simpsons, This Troper is well aware of that, she doesn't know the name of the exact disease and couldn't successfully find out on Google. She thinks it's called Chrones or something with a bunch of Gs and Ls in it.) and his parents (and anybody else who should logically be able to determine that he is older than One Year Old) don't pay enough attention to know that he is older than one. Something that should be a different Guess but plays along well into this one is that Bonnie's pregnancy was a Hysterical Pregnancy and she was using a pillow to pretend she was actually pregnant. At some point she actually became pregnant either while cheating on Joe or even during the episode where he regained use of his penis. And again, nobody noticed that it took her since the late 90s to give birth to a baby fathered by someone who had already been crippled for several years because everybody is an idiot.
Meg will play the Sarlacc in It's A Trap!Seems like natural progression. As she put it in Something Something, she never gets any lines. And she plays crap roles.
Lois is on to Stewie, but has ulterior motives for letting it slide.In the future, she was pretty on the ball with the emergency money to send baby Stewie back to the past (present). She is also prone to feeling the rush whenever she gets a bit of power. Let's face it: whatever her plans are (perks for being the mother of the world dictator? wresting the title from his hands for herself?), she may have had a Batman Gambit set up this whole time that hinges on Stewie conquering the world and her escaping every single matricide attempt!
The final episode will be a dark Deconstruction of the entire series.It will be revealed among other things that everyone in Quahog is completely insane (and not in the humorous way that the rest of the series portrays it) and that all those cutaways and cameos are all just hallucinations of town gone mad.
The souls of Brian and Peter somehow got confused with each other before their birth.Originally, Peter's soul was supposed to be born into the body of a dog, while Brian's soul was supposed to be born into the body of a middle-class white catholic American, but by some cosmic mistake, they changed places. It would explain a lot, really.
Meg is actually Seth's favorite character.Seth loves Meg. He made Her the Butt Monkey because for every horrible thing that happens to Her]] She gains more and more fans.
Chris is Obfuscating Stupidity.Despite usually acting like an idiot, he has had some moments of intelligence such as at the end of 'Deep Throats'.
Peter is Obfuscating Stupidity.The truth is that Peter is faking his stupidity so he can get away with the worst of his misdeeds,along with other sordid acts.And he will be called out on it
Stewie is Obfuscating Stupidity and his Character Derailment is a Batman Gambit by Seth/the writers.Well at least from season 4 onwards, Stewie thinks that if he acts gay, his plans to Take Over the World would not be taken seriously and then he can attack. Think about who would the naive baby who sings showtunes as a serious threat. He'd mainly want to convince Brian because he's the only one who actually notices him since Peter and Louis are busy being evil and Meg and Chris hardly interact with Stewie anymore. The episode "Halloween on Spooner Street" was a final confirmation if Brian takes him seriously, because he might've thought that if Brian found out that he shot Diane in "And then there were fewer" he'd would've seen it coming, and everything in the Halloween episode went according to plan and Brian did believe that Stewie was a helpless baby. Maybe in a couple of seasons down the road Stewie will retun to his old self. Do you honestly believe that the writers made Stewie an helpless baby on purpose. Seth might make excuses about the taking over the world thing was "getting played out" but he, along with some of the writers planned everything about Stewie.
Lois is evilEven though what Peter did to Stewie crossed the line,it could be justified by being mentally undeveloped.Lois went along with this,and she has no justification.
At some point in the future, Stewie will kill his family. Then, he will rename himself into Arthur Mitchell.
Is Quahog based on Omelas?I was thinking of a short story I read in my Intro to Literature Class "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" in the story Omelas is basically Utopia, there are no laws, people can do anything they want and everyone is happy, however their happiness is only possible if one forsaken children remains miserable. I wonder if Seth based Quahog on this town and Meg is the forsaken children whose misery allows everyone else to be happy and Peter to get away with all of the crap he pulls off.
Quagmire and Brian are going to end up in a big fight.As we've seen in the episodes "The New Black Guy" and "Quagmire's Dad" there is definitely tension building up between them. Its a one-sided fight, because Quagmire is the one who doesn't like Brian.
Next season, Brian is going to turn the tables on Quagmire and give him a "The Reason You Suck" Speech.Considering that Quagmire's speech seemed to be taken from complaints made on this very wiki about Brian, it seems that the staff are aware of this what we have to say (including us who felt that Quagmire was the absolute worst person they could have chosen to rant at Brian). So Brian's speech will be full of our grievances about Quagmire, which means Quagmire will finally be called out for being a rapist. And it will be awesome.
Everyone is on LSDIt would explain the random, non-sequitur flashbacks, the bright colors ("sparkling"), the Negative Continuity (rewriting personal history), the dramatic personality shifts, Stewie's sudden homosexuality (change of life perspective), Peter's stupidity (brain damage); everyone in all Quahog is so ridiculously high it warps reality itself to their trips. Dude, Not Funny! moments) that is causes people to become Christian Conservatives out of spite. With Seth being too full of himself to even notice this or care.
Herbert really has a basement full of Popsicles and wants to be an Ice cream ManIt has been noted more than a few times Herbert "has popsicles" in his basement for kids, and he was once seen trying to buy an Ice cream Truck. Sure, these statements are supposed to be taken in another direction, but just picture Chris went into Herbert's basement just given a popsicle
The last episode.Everything is destroyed by attacking clouds, and Peter says, "I told you so," just before the credits roll.
The first three seasons take place in another universe than those sinceRoad to the Multiverse established that there are various parallel universe in existence. Everything we've seen since the show came back from cancellation is a much crueler alternate reality, with a dumber Peter, meaner Lois, a self-righteous Brian, Camp Gay Stewie and Butt Monkey Meg. The original universe presumably still has Cleveland and Loretta living next door, Kevin Thompson alive, and Pawtucket Pat in ownership of the brewery.
Brian is a hypocritical idiot, not an Author Avatar.That big rant against him by Quagmire? That was Seth/somebody else on the team pointing out to the Fan Dumb that he is meant to be a hypocritical anti-religious douche who constantly talks himself up.
In the Simpsons parody segment, Maggie shot Quagmire, not the other way around.Maggie packs heat, and probably has ever since she "accidentally" shot Mr. Burns.
Meg really is a transmanThat would explain a lot of her behavior.
Kevin Swanson is a robot.His Suspiciously Specific Denial in "A Hero Sits Next Door" could have been more than just a one-off gag. Joe's explanation for his absence has been noted as an Ass Pull, but maybe he was just covering up a much darker truth...
Someone on the writing staff (possibly Seth) is a closeted homosexual.
Connie doesn't really hate MegShe just fears for her own popularity. But deep down, she actually has some respect for her.
Brian is actively suicidal, and him offering both of his kidneys to Peterwas a euthanasia ploy. We've known about his alcoholism and self-doubt for years. Then the novel he was working on for years bombed and he's largely given up on writing. Then Quagmire's Reason You Suck Speech reminded him of his many flaws and destroyed much of what was left of his self-esteem. We found out about his suicide plans in Stewie and Brian, and when Peter lost the use of his kidneys, he saw a chance to end it all and save his best friend's life at the same time.
Seth, or one/more of the writers, is attracted to big girls.Just a thought, but at minimum half of the 'big girl' appearances in the show (and American Dad) aren't jokey/stereotypical, most notably, over on American Dad, Bullock's attraction and Steve's ex.
At the end of ...And Then There Were Fewer, Stewie lied.At the end of the episode Lois is about to be killed by Dianne, by Dianne is shot and killed by someone else. The camera pans up and we see it was Stewie, claiming that "If anyone's gonna take that bitch out, it's me". I think he was lying, he took out Dianne simply because he loves his mummy!
The Simpsons and Family Guy universes are merging.At some point in their history(probably during Season 3), one of Stewie's attempts at world domination went horribly wrong, resulting in the two universes beginning to combine. The Flanderization of The Simpsons is the result of this, and the show's own Flanderization is a violent reaction to the merging. The reason why Stewie isn't as evil as he once was is due to the softer, more positive traits of The Simpsons leaking in. Ultimately, they will fully merge, creating the South Park universe.
Peter's mother and step-father were related.That's why he can still claim ancestry to all his former Griffin family members, his mom and Francis were somewhat closely related.
Death really is cheap.Peter seems to survive everything, even an utterly broken neck, despite being Too Dumb to Live. This is because, as a friend of sorts to The Grim Reaper, Death decides not to act when Peter does something stupid: either because he doesn't want to lose him due to Peter's stupidity, or finds his injuries by stupidity funny.
Brian and Jasper are from a/the dog universe.There are no other anthropomorphic dogs in the main universe. However, in Road To Multiverse, they're seen everywhere in that universe where dogs and humans are role reversed. Somehow, Brian and Jasper crossed from that universe. It could've been when Brian was too young to remember, giving him no knowledge of alternate universes. As to why that universe still has a Brian, well, Brian isn't exactly an uncommon name, so it's just coincidence. Either that or Brian and Jasper are from a very similar universe. We saw plenty of universes where humans are in charge, but Human!Brian acted like the main universe was something special for having humans in charge, despite hopping universes with Poodle!Stewie. There are probably just as many dog-run universes as there are human-run universes, and Brian and Jasper are simply from there.
Brian is suicidal because he's being too human.Brian had spent a lot of time with people, paying bills, having human jobs, the stress of being human for a dog, even an intelligent dog like Brian, must be hard. He kept on suppressing his canine instincts and it came out as unhealthy human habits like smoking and drinking. If he wants to get better, he has to embrace his canine instincts at least once a while to give them a break.
Micky McFinnagan is related to Francis GriffonQuite possibly a cousin. It would also explain explains Peter looks so much like his Step-fathers family.
Stewie is not Peter's son, instead, his father is...The Ultronian Superhero, Thermoman, from My Hero (I bet half of you don't know what i'm talking about :L). It's common fact that various elements from TV, film and other media exists in the Family Guy Universe, so what about Thermoman. As seen in My Hero, Thermoman, also known by his Human of alias of George Sunday the Irish Shopkeeper, has two children who, being Ultronian, are able to talk, and have Superpowers. Six days (that's the length of Ultronian pregnancy) before Stewie was born, Thermoman met Lois and they had a one-night stand, concieving Stewie. Thermoman left right after and Lois kept Peter in the dark about it, so he thinks that he is Stewie's father. As Lois said when she dreamt of finding out Stewie was evil, she smoked pot when she was pregnant with him. This stunted his development, so he doesn't have advanced Superhero powers (e.g. flying, thermobreath), but he could still talk, walk, have super-intelligence and even the ability to slap around Human adults.
Quagmire's going to have a bad time of it in Season 10, and it will directly stem from his feud with BrianThink about it. While others on the show admit that Brian is often a Jerk Ass, he still has plenty of people who love him. And Quagmire can't hold on to his visceral, violent, searing hatred of Brian for as long as he has or be as open about it as he has been without the people that care for Brian starting to resent it...especially coming from someone like Glenn Quagmire. "Tiegs For Two" has already given some hints that Peter may not appreciate Quagmire's Brian-hatred(after all..Peter said that Quagmire didn't want Brian told about the class...and Peter told him anyway )). That said, there's someone else who may not appreciate Quagmire's Brian-beatings..someone a lot more dangerous..
Lois is the reason that Meg is such a Butt Monkey.As seen in the episodes 'Stewie Kills Lois' and 'Trading Places' Meg can do quite well when it comes to domestic stuff. Lois realized this and while at first, she was only sabotaging Meg subconsciously, as the show went on and Character Derailment starting setting in she started to be more open about it.
When Lois said that Meg was the one that gave birth to Stewie, she wasn't joking.During one of the rare time that Meg had a boyfriend they had sex and as a result Meg fell pregnant with Stewie. With the help of Brian, Lois covered the whole thing up by pretending that she was the one that was pregnant and when Stewie was born, she passed him off as her son and not Meg's. The only people that know the truth are Lois, Brian and Meg. Peter is too dumb to figure it out and they could have easily convinced Chris it was something else and he would have readily believed them.
The current writing team of Family Guy are former Fox network executives who have a vendetta against Seth MacfarlaneThink about it. They take Brian, admittedly Macfarlane's own mouthpiece character, turn him into a Jerk Ass and then kick him repeatedly into the gutter at long extended periods for humiliation's sake. They attack Macfarlane's political views solely (anyone remember the last time they made fun of the other side?) And then they repeatedly tear down the remaining characters, writing less and less well-written storylines as time goes on. Suddenly it all makes sense!
Quagmire's hatred of Brian is actually some proper continuity at workIn season 7's "The Man With Two Brians", Quagmire lets Brian stay with him after he moved out because of NB, and absolutely no hostility existed between them. Quagmire tells him he's having a beautiful Puerto Rican chick coming over who happens to have a almost instantly visible disfigurement (her upper right thigh was mangled in a childhood accident). Anyway, he instructs Brian to be discrete about it. Stewie arrives to try and convince Brian to come home, and the girl shows up, looking for Glenn. Stewie shouts "Oh my god, what happened to your leg!?" and she runs off crying. Quagmire chases after her saying "Dammit, Brian!" Jump to the first interaction Brian and Quagmire have since this episode, in season 8's "Jerome Is The New Black", and Glenn's hate for Brian is full blown, likely due to the prior incident. Looks like the mantees can focus after all.
Brian suddenly being an Atheist in post-cancellation seasons isn't a continuity error, it's a plot point.The last time we see a direct reference to Brian believing in God is in the Season 3 premier, "The Thin White Line". At the end of the episode, he says the one thing he's learned from the whole ordeal is that everyone is responsible for their own actions (or something to that effect); that's when he stops believing in God.
A throwaway gag on the show was a reference to a Chinese RevolutionaryIn one episode (the Poltergeist parody episode, I think), Stewie mentions to Brian how he met Jesus, who said that his name is really Jesus Hong. In Real Life, the leader of the Taiping Rebellion, a man named Hong Xiuquan, began his attempt to take over China after visions brought on by a nervous breakdown convinced him that he was the younger brother of Jesus. Granted, Hong is a very common name in China, and this could be a coincidence, but I have to wonder if the writers were at least subconsciously thinking of this guy when they wrote that.
If they ever get around to the Prequel Trilogy, Meg will play Jar-Jar
The Griffins really do love MegPeter's alcoholism is what causes him to abuse her Lois is afraid of what would happen if she sided with Meg Chris is just following his parents' example Can't think of why Stewie and Brian would give her crap, though
The Quagmires are immortal elves.They have an allure and can whomever they want of their desired sex. Glen can attract any woman he desires. Glen's father can glamour people into not noticing the fact that she's transgendered when trying to get a mate (that's why Brian didn't notice it). There's also the fact that Quagmire is supposedly 61 and that would mean his dad would have to be his late seventies at the youngest, yet neither of them look very old at all. They could both be Really 700 Years Old, or Glen is simply young by immortals' standards. Glen's constant string of meaningless sexcapades are a result of his immortality - since he'll outlive any woman he falls in love with, he doesn't want to commit. As an airline pilot, Glen has every excuse to keep moving around after people notice that he doesn't age, but he's grown attatched to his friends at Spooner Street and can't bring himself to let go of them. Glen's elderly appearance in the future of the Stewie Griffin movie is either another glamour so that his friends don't get overly suspiscious. In that future, after Peter, Joe, and Cleveland die, Glen will drop his glamor, sneak out of the nursing home, and live a whole new life. Alternatively, because of aforementioned fondness of these friends, Glen gave up his immortality and will actually die with them. Or he got it stripped away involuntarily by unknown means.
Peter's actualy a genius and uses retardim as an excuse to get away with doing whatever the hell he wants.Peter always knows the mentaly ill thing to do, and never misses a beat on a chance to show how trully helpless he is. Coincidence, or extremly genius planning. He managed to score just below the bar on an aptitude test, and lost a thinking game to a nonliving object, There Is No Kill Like Overkill.
Stewie Griffin is homosexual or at least not fully heterosexual because....Peter griffin possesses some gayness himself. We find this out in that episode "Perfect Castaway" when Peter gets stranded on that island and has that sex oragy with his friends, and that episode where Lois slept with Bill Clinton and Peter got revenge by sleeping with the same person so that proves Peter is at least bisexual. Now you people can say gayness is a choice if you want to but gay people have different levels of testosterone and estrogen than a straight person, so a baby with a imbalance of those sexual hormones is way more likely to turn out gay than a person with the right amount of those hormones for thoses gender actually proving gayness is in genetics.Even if that's not true which it really is anyway this theory is true in the "Family Guy" universe as shown in that episode "Peter Gay". Besides Peter did those gay things before he got that gay injection anyway.What does this have to do with stewie being gay you might ask? Well the answer is simply Stewie inherited his father's gayness. Even in real life gayness if passed down in the organic gene pool.
Peter despising Meg is a giant plot hole.You'll notice when the show first came out and before it became popular that Meg wasn't the butt monkey of every joke, but one day one of the creators decided to play a mean joke on Meg and the show must got super high ratings or something, so the creaters decided to choose Meg as the butt monkey. I don't think Stewie was gay or even bisexual until later on that show. Think of it as adding some super good seasoning to the new super hit franchise. A similar situation is when Quagmire all of a sudden hated brian's guts, yet later on he is willing to joke with him and let him stay back at his house, then he goes back to hating him.
Lois faked her homosexuality.Even in real life we see stuff like this: girls pretend to be gay just turn a boy on, because they know some boys think two girls doing it is hot. In the Family Guy movie "Stewie Griffin, the Untold Story," she said she went back to men to get attention. Unlike Peter, Stewie, or that gay couple that had Bertrum, Lois has never exhibited any natrual gay tendencies. That time she kissed Meg's false lesbian girlfriend doesn't count. Let's remember that she sees Meg as competition as seen in that episode "Go Stewie Go, and she was trying to prove that she is a better kisser as Meg.
Neil Goldman will be killed offHe's spent entire seasons without as much as a mention.
Peter is mentaly regressing, back into adolescenceHe is getting stupider, in this troper's opinion, and he will eventualy become so mentaly disabled that the things he can do, he will do with less ease. Kind of like huntingtons.
In Stewie Griffin the untold story the "sexy house party" wasn't real.It was a drunken hallucination produced by Stewies intoxicated infant possibly partially hetereosexual psyche.
Bertram likes to fool people into thinking he's a genius.He has failed on every account to eradicate Stewie and at one point had all the time in the world and still mucked it up. This troper also motions that he's faking his accent to annoy people. You know a little Gilbert Gottfried like.
Stewie is a former dictatorStewie Griffin is a former dictator, or was almost a dictator. Until a wizard came along and de-aged him. That's why Stewie was so aggressive in the beginning, his old personality was still there. But as he grows, he begins to forget that former life and moves on. This explains why his mental age is so far ahead of his actual age. Also explains why he has a British accent despite nobody else in the Griffin family having one. Now, before you call Jossed where Stewie remembers his womb and his time as a sperm, remember that logically at one point Stewie was a normal baby and was born, even if it was longer ago than we're lead to believe.
Stan from American Dad! and Quagmire from Family Guy share the same father, or at least grandfather.Stan got his chin and build from their father, and Quagmire got his promiscuity, cheating, and chin from their father. Both also share the same hair color.
Another reason Quagmire hates Brian is because Quagmire was once like him.Brian's personality just keeps reminding Quagmire of his former lifestyle. Quagmire was willing to turn his life around, which he knows Brian wouldn't do, and becomes the person we all know.
Seth MacFarlane has a thing for blondes.Which is why many female characters are blondes. These include:
The "Stewie Griffin the untold story" movie is very impotent.Am I the only one who's aware of this. First of all Stewie killed Vanessa before he went to his original time and since he's evil again him killing Vanessa is obsolete unless he kills her for some other reason, and Dianne Simmons being alive is another one, or is it. In the original timeline Stewie turned good but I don't think he would make any difference in that Family Guy special "And there were fewer", so was Dianne going to let Lois live, you know what that's getting so confused it I'm just going to stop talking about that one. The most important one is Cleveland. In future Stewie's timeline Cleveland is in Quahog retirement home. Did he ever come back in the now current timeline, can someone please answer my question. Evil Stewie (current stewie) didn't have much of an impact on Cleveland's life so why would the lame Good Stewie will. Did Stewie morality make that much of a difference in everybody's lives?
The Family Guy universe and the American Dad universe exist as one.The part when Stan Smith meeting Stewie Griffin might be non-canon since it took place in a simulator but what about that episode when Stan was talking about his favorite dogs and Brian Griffin made a short appearance.
Meg Griffin canonically has no middle name.Wouldn't be out of place for the issue to be brought up in-universe, which leads to Peter or Lois saying that they just didn't bother giving Meg a middle name.
Meg was stolen from the hospital by Peter and Lois back when they used to do drugsIn the episode where Brian was going to go to jail, he stated who Meg's real father was, and the whole family is difrent than her asides from hair color.
Lois is a chubby chaserEvery one in the family, except for the ones who can think for themselves, is heavy set.
Stewie will not let him self become fat, and when he did Lois had virtually no problem with it.
Brian is as athletic as any unathletic dog, therefore he has no chance with lois ever.
An explanation for Stewie becoming an anti-hero.Stewie Griffin, evil baby extroadinare, was trying to figure out how he would sucsessfully take over the world and kill Lois. To learn this, he attempted to find a way of understanding his enemies. Creating a mind-altering machine, he altered his brain chemistry so he can better understand and think like the adults. This sucseeded beyond his wishes, giving us the Camp Gay antihero.
"Stewie Kills Lois" wasn't a simulation.Stewie did indeed take over the world. Every episode after this is part of Stewie's simulation, used by Lois to see what would happen if the two-parter never happened. The ending of "Lois Kills Stewie" is Stewie's Dying Dream, which is why it cuts to black.
Seth MacFarlane is a closet homosexualThink about it. MacFarlane claims to be a proponent of gay rights, yet he uses every gay stereotype in the book. My theory is that Seth is doing this because he's having trouble accepting his own homosexuality, and so in an attempt to distance himself from it, he told the writers that all gay people on the show should be Camp Gay and promiscuous, because, despite being gay, he is, of course, nothing like this whatsoever. Also note how, post-cancellation, the main female cast consists of a Butt Monkey of extreme proportions, and a sociopathic Bitch in Sheep's Clothing who's prepared to commit rape.
If Meg ever lashes out like she did in "Dial Meg for Murder" again, the family will immediately strike back and brush it off before an episode would develop such a plot.Just going by a screenshot◊ of a TBA episode for this one. She's moreso trying to tell them down instead of beat the crap out of them, but as one can see, they are looking, but Peter, Lois, and Chris are far from interested. If she does get to that level, though... well, results will be predictably bad...
Meg will kill her family and become Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way.Thus explaining Ebony's knowledge of American goth pop culture. And after all the shit Meg's been through, no wonder she gets depressed. Perhaps one day she developed magic powers and reversed the flow of the universe, making everyone love her. Then she used Avada Kedavra (or one of the many mispellings), changed her name, robbed a Hot Topic, flew to England and went to Hogwarts as a 7th year, where she met Draco, made friends with Willow, B'loody Mary, Vampire, Diabolo, Dracola, Darkness, Crabbe and Goyle, and Professor Sinister/Trevolry. She hates the preps, aka Britney, because they bring back dark memories of her high school. She hates Snap and Loopin because they remind her of Hebert. She hates the Mystery of Magic, aka Cornelia Fuck and Doris Rumbridge, because they remind her of her ex-boyfriend Mayor Adam West. And now I wonder what I've been smoking.
Quahog's hatred of atheists in "Not All Dogs Go to Heaven" was Brian's exaggeration. He is just an Unreliable Narrator.Quahog doesn't really hate atheists, it just so happens that most of the people in town believe in some religion. The way the episode presents the issue, it seems Brian is the only atheist in Quahog. However, in "Love, Blactually" he met an atheist in Quahog with similar ideals. Also in "Excellence in Broadcasting", Lois points out Brian tends to change his opinion on matters just so he can look like the underdog. He thought by making Quahog look like religious bigots he could be the underdog, and show everybody how wrong they are (in Brian's eyes). In "Boys Do Cry", the family escapes to Texas, and in the Family Guy universe Texas is a place filled with bigots, regardless of its status in real life. Since then, Brian took these living stereotypes and applied it to Quahog so he could look like a hero, especially because the negative descriptions of Quahog only started beginning the next season.
Brian's son Dylan is a werewolf.I mean, his mother is a human, his father is a dog. Think about it. The reason he left so suddenly was not to care for his mom, but because it was approaching the middle of the month and he had to get to his safehouse where he could transform without hurting anyone.
Joe's accident humbled him.The story where the Grinch crippled him was not true. Joe used to be an arrogant cop until some people beat him up which humbled him. The reason why he has anger issues is that his former personality creeps in sometimes.
In Connie D'Amico's next appearance, she's gonna get back at Meg for what happened in "Dial Meg for Murder".At this point, Connie's friends have gotten tired of picking on Meg, but Connie will have none of that. Connie's payback will end up getting herself killed.
Stewie is an evil twin.When Stewie was born, it wasn't him. They took the good twin and left Lois with the evil one. The reason why Stewie became docile is that the good twin found his way into the Griffin's house and killed the evil twin.
Quagmire has so many diseases that he's immune to all of them.This actually exist in the real world, organisms such as monkeys and people who live in third world countries possess this ability. In The Simpsons Mr. Burns has so many diseases that he's immune because they are all trying to attack his vitallity at once but can't because "they are like a whole bunch of people trying to squeeze into a little hole at once". Quagmire's body is like Mr. Burns's body or he'd probably built up a super high resistance to his illness just like monkeys did to aids, but the only differnce is Quagmire's built a super high resistance or an immunity to ALL the numerous diseases he has. Talk about a super human feat. Just because he is insusceptible to all the diseases he has doesn't mean he can't pass them on just like a monkey can give a human aids. Quagmires ailments don't negatively affect him one whit but he can give them to someone else, and they will take their full toll on whoever catches it from Quagmire. What can really support this theory is that halloween episode when Peter, Joe and Cleveland injected Quagmire with every disease known to man and he didn't get affected by it, as if he was immune to it or he built an immunity to all those diseases known to man.
The human farmer who owned biscuit is Bryan Griffin's real father.Super country farmers do like to get a little freaky, I'm not saying that they all do but most ill southerners don't always have interfamily relationships, some are known to screw their own animals(pigs, chickens even horses etc.) behind closed doors of course, that's why you never hear about stuff like that. Biscuit's owner is pretty old meaning that his wife is pretty old too and most likely starting to peak out. Despite the farmer being old of age he wasn't losing his sexual stride, so he goes and sleeps with other women. No, because his old dried up menopause wife would catch him. Farmers are renoun for their rescourcefulness in any situation. So what does biscuit's owner do? have sex with her. If two animals mate with the same female it's possible for the female to have both of their babies. I know that they have to have the same kind of DNA and in reality a human can't make a baby with a dog, but this is family guy we're talking about here. Brian knocked up a dirty old whore so it's possible for a human to get a dog pregnant. When Brian states "he gets it from his father or grandfather" he is actually referring to someone in that farmers ancestor's. Brian inherited his attraction to human females from his father, his human father. It's possible that he also inherited his heavy drinking from his father just like Peter inherited his drunkeness from his father.
Stewie's crush on Brian caused his Heel-Face Turn.Think about it, Stewie's loss of evil occured around the same time his attraction to Brian started so it's possible that between seasons 4&5 Stewie after falling in love with Brian but he realised that Brian would never fall for somone as evil as himself so he decided to act nice in order to improve his chances with Brian and eventually became the mask. At somepoint in time Brian also mentioned off screen that he hates british accents causing Stewie to lose the accent
Peter can only create retarded children or super genius's with his sperm.When it comes to sense Meg is normal,but Meg is canoncially not Peter's child so she doesn't count. Chris is a complete retard who can't see what's infront of him while on the other hand Stewie & Bertrum are the two smartest organisms on Earth.
Meg isn't Peter's biological daughterIn a few episodes they make reference to her not being his, and in the episode where Stewie Kills Lois, Peter is jealous of the Captain's story and begins to tell the tale of how they almost didn't have Meg due to abortion. We all know Lois gets around and Peter must have suspected that she wasn't his and decide on the abortion, but after seeing the abortionist was one handed they decided on keep her.
In "There were fewer" Stewie was aware of everything the whole time.Hence why both he and Dianne Simmons didn't get surprised when the murders occured. Stewie had a birds eye view of everything including what Dianne was doing. When there was a murderer in the house Stewie didn't get scared, unlike everyone else who didn't know about the murder. Off screen Stewie snuck around and saw everything, but when Dianne was about to kill Lois she crossed the line.
The reason the Griffin Family hates Meg.I remember in an early episode there was a throwaway gag of Chris remembering Meg killed their little sister, his parents said it was a dream, and when Chris started to ask more about they stated angrily "It was a dream!" Simply put, I think that Meg DID end up killing their younger sister, how or why I couldn't guess besides some jealousy. Due to the trauma, Meg has forgotten the incident. Peter and Lois were never able to forgive her, and instead of deciding to send her to a mental institution, or see a therapist, they decided to punish her by constantly causing her physical and emotional harm. Chris only hurts Meg like Peter does because he's learned the bad behavior from his father's actions. Why they're being so sadistic? Beats me, but additional theroies would be appreciated.
Brian's son isn't actually his.His ex just wanted to rid herself of the unruly brat, and Brian was the first guy dumb enough to not demand a DNA test. This would explain why the kid has no canine features at all, among other things.
In the series finale, some possibilities for plot synopsis' would be...
The Flanderization is all due to the machinations of the Cult of SkaroAlright, this might need some explanation, the characters of Family Guy universe, along with The Simpsons and South Park are being manipulated by the Cult of Skaro, who are making the characters behave in a way they wouldn't do normally, allowing the characters to help them proceed to their ultimate goal; reality itself being conquered. They are using different tactics with each universe; with this one, Sec is using the characters' natural stupidity to trick them into serving him. Brian and Stewie? Deliberately working with Sec and are currently manipulating the Griffins into helping them. In Stewie's case, it's because he knows that Sec will need people "on the inside" in each universe or Sec told him We Can Rule Together (which will ultimately revealed to be Sec lying to him). In Brian's case, it's because he genuinely believes (or knows) that working with Sec will make his universe a better place, making him a Well-Intentioned Extremist who believes Utopia Justifies the Means.
Meg really is transgenderedIt's not just some one-off joke or has been retconned by the series lack of continuity. Either she's in the closet or just hasn't realized it yet.
—Not acording to this. She's all woman.
Kevin Swanson will come back in a future episode.In one episode, it is briefly mentioned that he died in Iraq after going years without being seen on the show. The creators of the show said they killed him off because they couldn't think of anything to do with him, that he was a boring character. However, having him come back somehow could make a good plot.
James Woods will return as a ghost.He's back to being a jerkass again, because he found out Diane Simmons tricked him into becoming a newborn Christian and orchestrated his death.
Susie Swanson isn't Joe's daughter.He has to use a prosthetic penis to have sex (or possibly "what Joe calls sex") with Bonnie, and had been paralyzed for fifteen years in one episode while Bonnie had been pregnant for six years (or less than nine months) in another, within a couple of years of each instance. She's also blonde, while Joe has light brown hair and Bonnie has black hair, but it's possible that Joe has dark blond hair of the type that darkens with age or he and Bonnie carried recessive genes for blondness. Pet Sematary (along with his lucky cat's foot), and he Came Back Wrong. They also both have the name of a biblical apostle, but that's probably just a meaningless coincidence (in- or out-of-universe).
Peter makes up relatives whenever he feels like itRemember Peter's cousin Peter the Pig, his "broster", his great uncle Peter Hitler, Peter's great grandfather Huck Griffin, and Peter's great-great-uncle Jabba the Griffin? Well apparently they seem very improbable to exist. They mostly appear in cutaway gags and most of the cutaway gags they appear in are Peter's. Stewie seems to do this as well with his cousins Stewie Cruise and Quark Griffin. Why Peter does this is unknown or if he really has a bizarre family tree. But the one thing that grinds this troper's gears is the ambiguous existence of Peter's evil twin brother Thaddeus Griffin. Now despite saying he is Peter's twin brother, in the episode ""Padre de Familia", Peter was born alone, with Thaddeus nowhere to be seen and in "Brothers & Sisters", Peter states that he doesn't have a brother or a sister, but instead a broster, half-brother, half-sister. Now this is something that doesn't add up.
There will be another multiverse episode, and it will include...
There will be another Family Guy View Mail episode.
The entire series is actually Peter Griffin's final memories.
There will be a "Road to Arkham" episode....because that would be awesome.
Meg's dorky glasses and stupid hat are surpressing her super hotness for the stability of those around her.Meg is seen without her hat and especially her dumb glasses few times in the series. The few times she is seen with one of them or luckily both of them she seems a lot less bland and noticably more "hotter" as one might say and the characters on the show seem to feel the same. Just like their is an unknown source that gives Stewie his intelligence their is an anonomous source that conceals all of Meg's hotness(most likely that repulsive hat and glasses of hers). In that episode where Meg got that makeover into a hot blond, what really caused everyone else to like her was the loss of the hat and glasses not the hot pop-star makeover. Whenever Meg goes into her hot mode(having her glasses and Jewish looking hat removed especially at the same time) the balance of the universe as one might say goes out of wack. This ties into the canon lightnening rod theory from "Seahore Seashell Party".
Quagmire doesn't really hate Brian.He just blames Brian for not getting his own spin-off. He is releasing all his rage about it onto Brian. Kinda makes sense too. Seeing as Brian is Seth McFarlane's Author Avatar.
Since Brian & Stewie (And a little before it), Brian has been trying to be nicer to some peopleThe big example I can think of? Meg. Peter, Lois and Chris abuse her a bit, but all Brian does usually is verbal, and usually its just slight gags. Remember, he wrote a whole article about her in a magazine that convinced her to go back to her normal self, so something Heartwarming must've been done. Before the ep, it was because he was actually considering using his gun soon. Afterwards, its him trying to get a new lease on life, Fridge Horror means that Arnold and Stewie, both football heads, are related so Herbert is attracted to a blood nephew, Stewie's brother Chris!
Carter Pewterschmidt is a Captain Ersatz of Wade Gustafson from Fargo.Apart from the hair, they are alike in every single way. Think about it.
Meg is a beauty queen in nerd's clothing.Self explanotory.
Brian and Jasper are an evolutionary step in dogs.Which is why there are so few of them so far. It's a recent evolutionary step so they still hold several dog instincts and behaviors that aren't necessary for their survival. While there are only a few they are well-known which is why no one is shocked to see talking dogs.
The Next Chicken Fight.It will be either A. in a Family Guy movie, and the fight will be in 3D. Or B. a fight that lasts an entire 20 minute episode, ending with the Giant Chicken being Killed Off for Real.
Chris Griffin's biological father isn't Peter.Chris is blonde, yet none of his parents, nor his grandparents, are blond-haired. Plus Lois isn't exactly faithful. I can imagine an episode where Peter puts two and two together([13 years is enough time for him), and is enraged. It will end up with Peter turning his attention to Meg, which will get Chris riled up. Chris will search for his biological father. At the end of the episode, it'll be revealed that it's one of the members of KISS. Being a KISS fanboy, Peter will reconcile, and love the fact that his "son" was made by Lois doing KISS.
The series is caused by Meg's delusionsEarly on we are shown Meg writing articles and keeping a diary, so we know she can write, and she's probably creative enough to make up stories to entertain herself. She started Family Guy either out of boredom or a writing assignment from school. As time went on, though, she turned herself into the Butt Monkey in her own story out of low self-esteem/self-loathing and the overall tone of her stories became darker, more twisted, and less humorous as she slides into mental instability (alternately, she's growing up, becoming more cynical, and getting bored with Family Guy to account for the shift in tone).
Brian's ex Julian is part dogJulian has a necklace that looks like Brian's collar and she's of subpar human intelligence. Going by the theory that Brian and Peter are trapped in each other's bodies, this makes perfect sense.
Chris is a LeviathanStewie said so, in "The Story on Page One"!
Stewie is going to grow up like his fatherand he is going to have similar friends
Stewie is somewhat related to Numbuh 1They're both geniuses, have British accents and their head shapes are almost similar. The only reason that Stewie is evil is because—remember that episode in the Kids Next Door when Numbuh 1 found out that Father was actually his uncle? Stewie must have gotten that from him.
Connie D'Amico is related to Joyce Kinney.
King Stewart III(The tyrant stewie was in a past life) was really Compensatingfor Something.Confirmed in the very same episode when someone asked "why does he act like that" and Brian replied "because he has a really small penis". So he's compensating for his small penis with something abstract and that would be his huge phallic(dick) like attitude.
the Reason 'Meg' is now being treated like shit is because....Someone else here mentioned that Chris may have been right when he offhandedly mentions that Meg killed her twin sister. That is a good theory, but doesn't explain why she wasn't treated like crap before. (Ruleof Funny and Flanderization aside) I have a theory. In the original family guy, Meg Griffin is voiced by Lacey Chabert; during her time, her character was a Bratty Teenage Daughter whose parents did in fact love her, and wasn't treated like crap. Maybe, the 'Meg' voiced by Mila Kunis killed the original Meg, and afterwords, suffered a mental breakdown and believed herself to be the real Meg. The family is too afraid to bring this up, but torture her for this endlessly. Same with the rest of the town/world. The boys who shot their brother, or burned themselves alive, etc instead of going to prom with her (and the camera man who did the same) did it out of fear, rather than disgust. After she gets a make-over (temporarily) she is (generally) treated better because most do not recognize her. Connie and the rest of the school are too vapid to care that she's still the same person, explaining why she became popular.
Angela is Meg in the futureThink about it. Meg is considered to be ugly as sin by everyone, even across multiple universes. Angela is seen as disgusting by Peter and even Quagmire refused to sleep with her. Both Meg and Angela aren't ugly, but are just very plain looking (OK, Angela's breasts were shown to sag heavily in the "Baby You Knock Me Out" episode, but still) and are harassed by everyone else for not being smoking hot. With Meg being treated like crap for so long, it would not surprise me to see Meg become extremely bitter and desperate for love when she reaches her 40s or 50s.
My interpretation of Meg's Wham Line to Peter in "Seahorse Seashell Party"Maybe it's just me.... but one line really is shocking if you interpret it: "Take a look at yourself, Peter Griffin. You're a waste of a man!". Read that line again. That's the writers admitting that...
Susie Swanson is a CIA avatar occupied by Avery Bullock."Susie Swanson" could be an avatar either implanted in Bonnie's uterus by the CIA or swapped out with her real daughter at the hospital. This would explain Susie's internal voice: Bullock has been shown to occupy infant avatars in the American Dad! episode "Virtual In-Stanity." Additionally, the enhanced physical strength of the avatars provides plausibility to a very young Susie's ability to beat up Stewie in "Stew-Roids."
Lois is related to the HeavyThis is judging by her using a minigun and a shotgun in "Lois Kills Stewie." This could also mean that Stewie is either related to or will grow up to be the Pyro.
"My Black Son" is canonAlso, he's a ninja.
There is a chemical in Quahog's water that causes stupidity and aggression.The water is shown to be VERY polluted in one episode. It's possible that one of the chemicals in it causes brain damage over time. However, you have to have a few years' worth of it in your system before there are any effects, and the number of years varies for each person. Some people (such as Meg) are immune, or at least aren't affected as badly. Peter, Lois and Chris all became evil, but Stewie was so evil that it had the opposite affect on him, making him more docile. The story we see is told through Brian's eyes, and while Brian didn't become evil, he did become extremely hateful to anyone who disagreed with him, and as the brain damage sets in is actually wrong most the time but re-imagines things to make himself right. The numerous cutaway gags are actually hallucinations caused by said brain damage. Eventually, Quahog will be a total wasteland, filled with people whose only thought is to kill, and will be abandoned by anyone who still sane-ish.
Talking dogs like Brian have human ancestry.It's established in the show that dogs and humans can produce offspring. Talking dogs like Brian are mostly dog but have some human ancestor, so they can sometimes be born with human traits like sentience and the ability to dog. These talking dogs tend to be highly prone to depression, (as evidenced partially in the bank vault episode) because they're human in mind but in the body of dogs, and they're living in a world made for humans. Brian's character decay is the result of the increasing depression, combined with his alcoholism, which has caused him to become increasingly bitter and intolerant.
Lois and Peter, as well as Chris, treat Meg like crap because they're jealous.Meg is the only one in the family (besides Stewie, but he's only a baby) who isn't a moron. She's shown to make good grades and she's shown to have good potential. In the episode "Seashore Seashell Party", Lois and Peter admit that they're horrible people, especially to Meg, but seem to have been repressing those thoughts all those years. Meg thinks it's because Peter and Lois are inherently vile people who need to take their anger out on something, but it's really because they're jealous. Peter is a drunk idiot who works a crappy and unstimulating office job, and due to his idiocy he's never going to move up in life. He has no goals and nothing to work for. Peter can see that Meg has the potential to make something of her life, but he feels that as the father he needs to be superior to his children so he always tries to bring her down. Chris is also a complete moron and he's like Peter in many ways, and he knows that he's probably going to end up in the same life situation as Peter. He's jealous of Meg for the same reasons as Peter, he's upset that Meg is better than him despite being his sibling. Lois was a very rich and popular girl and could've done anything she wanted, but she gave it all up to be the housewife to a fat, stupid drunk. She believes it's too late to do anything more with her life, and since her quality of life lies with her husband and the career decisions he makes, she knows she probably won't move up in life either. She's strongly jealous of Meg because Meg has potential, she can still do what she wants in her life. Lois is tied down by Peter but Meg is still young and free, and seeing that fills Lois with regret and shame for her decisions. So, like Peter, she treats Meg like crap to bring her down.
Handi-Quacks was meant to be awful.You know, the show where Peter and the kids try to make up a new show, but Peter and Chris came up with awful ideas? The show was meant to be hilariously bad and stupid, a-la My Immortal. Peter and Chris got the joke, and their frustrations with Meg were because she just couldn't understand the joke and was taking the ridiculous premise too seriously.
A future season will invoke South Park's "You're Getting Old" to explain Peter's shenanigans.an insane libido, somehow gets women despite having a giant jaw and jerky behaviour, and can be a beacon of compassion and a dangerous rapist all at the same time. Quagmire is the son of a succubus, inheriting his mother's power over sex. His behaviour comes from being the scion of a sex demon, which likely gives him a very confused moral code when it comes to sex. This may go to explain why his mom was fine having a threeway with him: being a succubus, she would lack any moral compunction around sex. Quagmire is older than he looks because he inherited his mother's longevity-it's unclear how long he'll live, but it'll probably be a lot. The strange proportions could've also been a result of this interbreeding. This would also go to explain why he can carry every disease known to man-since when would a demon, especially one that feeds on sex, ever suffer from an STD, or any disease anyway? In fact, they may thrive off it.
Everything is a story Brian is telling.The series started out as a humorous chronicle of Brian's daily life for a book he was writing, but his alcoholism got worse and he was drunk while writing everything after season three. The nonsensical Plot Holes, the increasingly mean-spirited tone, the hamfisted and problematic aesops, and the way the story bends over backwards to make Brian right - he's no longer censoring or refining his work, so the story has become basically his personal fantasy and a way for him to vent, with no regard for quality as he no longer cares.
Meg being Transsexual will come back in a future episodeShe'll begin to transition. Hopefully they'll learn their lesson from Quagmire's Dad.
The hurricane in the 3-part crossover special was Hurricane SandyBecause why not?
Stewie's character change is just him getting olderEven if he hasn't aged, he's at least lived some time. He now knows that his mom isn't the anti-Christ and has calmed down on his evil schemes. His surroundings have begun to shape his personality. Alternatively they're doing a Baby Geniuses route and he forgets his babyhood traits as he ages into childhood.
Meg and Stewie are the highest paid members of the show.Meg is being paid to be the butt monkey. After the episode Fifteen Minutes of Shame Meg, fed up with the way she was being treated, threatened to leave the show if she wasn't given a pay raise. Mc Farlene obliged. The reason the family's bullying of Meg gets worse as the series progresses is because the rest of the cast are jealous. Stewie's being paid so much because he's the most popular.
In the series finale...The show will end with one of the characters attempting to catch the FOX logo in hopes of the show being renewed only for the logo to be snatched away ending the show.
Brian turned to atheism to cope with his breakup with Jillian
Going off a previous WMG, Lois hates Meg because at one point in her life she was a lot like Meg and Lois despises her because it takes her back to undesireable parts of her past.This is also what could of caused Lois to become such a slut during her youth. Her self esteem was so low at one point that she would give it away for almost free, instead of sucking up her misery like Meg she became a big whore to get "IN. That's what actually led to her promiscuity instead of the fact that she was young as she would try to get everyone to believe. She hates Meg because instead of throwing herself away like her mother, she's staying true to herself and she's jealous of Meg because of that, Lois feel's Meg's mocking her with her spiritual resillience. Sure Meg's no virgin or at least since very earlier in the series and she does have her fair share of boyfriends, however at least she isn't a complete tramp like her mother was. Come on guy let's be realistic here, Lois isn't that attractive and Quagmire's butt ugly so add two and two and you'll see how Quagmires and Lois hypothetical children came out so ugly. Despite Ana Lee being Quagmire's daughter she's attractive or at least average looking despite being Quagmire's offspring. In "Tales of a Third Grade Nothing" it's shown that Quagmire's offspring physically resemble him strongly and that's not a good thing in the looks department, so in order for Quagmire to have a too the very least a half way descent attractive child he's going to have to impregnate a super hottie. Also taking into account who Quagmire is he could easily get one.
Stewie is just an ordinary baby and the whole entire series is part of his baby imagination.Well it would be one hell of a surprise, even bigger than the one in the end of "Lois kills Stewie".
Brian sleeping with all his exes will make Quagmire hate him even more.
Never in his entire 61-year life has Quagmire been a Batman fanIn "And Then There Were Fewer" he clearly says "hot chicks are never crazy". Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, and (Depending on the Writer) Catwoman are living contradictions (so-to-speak).
Brian will decide he's had enough, and ask Stewie to make him a regular dog.Tired of being second in Butt Monkey status only to Meg, he decides he can't take it anymore. Stewie refuses and instead throws a surprise appreciation party, and even Quagmire briefly admits Brian is a nice guy (then adding "for a douche")
Peter and Lois did have another daughter.Remember when Chris mention his "other sister" in Let's Go to the Hop?" She was'' real. Not only that, she was a Child Prodigy. She was the center of attention and everyone absolutely adored her. Meg was overly jealous, and it did not help matters that the sister often rubbed her success in her face when no one was around.
Stewie is homosexual, and heteroromantic.This explains why, despite numerous jokes, hints, etc about him having a sexual attraction towards other males, his only romantic interests have been female. His crush on Brain could be either a case of If It's You, It's Okay, or perhaps he is biromantic or panromantic. The only evidence contrary to this, to the extent of my own knowledge, is him experiencing arousal whilst spying on the cheerleaders changing in the locker room (which could be explained by him getting off on the thrill of it) and his touching the baby-sitter's breast (which could also be explained that he, from watching his parents, see this as a way of showing affection, and when he does it while she's unconscious, it was probably more of a Take That, I can do whatever I want to!) if anyone has any contrary evidence, they are welcome to come forth with them.
Jack Harkness is Quagmire's real father.Think about it-they're both Older Than They Look(in Jack's case, by a large factor), have enormous sexual appetites and are lust magnets(though Quagmire's magnet is well-hidden.) Since Quagmire is 61, his real father should look much older. In reality, Jack Harkness conceived Quagmire and Glenda was married later because his mom wanted to seem respectful(Quagmire's just trying to convince himself that Glenda was his father), and happened to share her massive chin(maybe related, maybe not.) Glenn Quagmire inherited Harkness' charm and his resistance to ST Ds(it was part of the parcel when the Time Vortex made him immortal), along with his Extreme Omnisexual nature. His mother seems to have a really messed up relationship with him which meant Quagmire didn't inherit his restrain, and due to a combination of Values Dissonance when he grew up along with a lack of aliens, Quagmire focuses on women and things that aren't human(and since he hasn't met Roger, this only means the animal kingdom.) For added fun, Quagmire's descendants carry these horny/casanova genes, leading to the 51st century and Jack Harkness. The reason why the world of Family Guy is thematically unlike Doctor Who is because we're seeing it for the perspective of Quahog.
Stan Thompson will appearFor those of you who don't understand, watch "Screwed the Pooch."
The cutaway gags are all in the characters' headsThink about it: the ridiculous exaggerations, the lack of continuity (like the ones about Stewie's birth) and remember this one from "Family Goy"?
Brian and all other talking animals in The Macfarlaneverse (sans Klaus) are Annunaki DescendantsYou gotta admit when you use this theory it makes Brian, Jasper and the other talking animals in the Macfarlaneverse a lot more cool, and it makes as much sense as anything else in these shows. Brian and every other talking animal in The Macfarlaneverse are the descendants of the original Annunaki vessels, which explains why Talking Animals are so common among the 3 series.
Cleveland will move back in the Season 12 premiereThe Cleveland Show's cancelled, so why not? Maybe he could even bring his new family back to his old house, only to find out that the Smiths from American Dad! are living there. Peter, Quagmire and Joe then all help him get rid of them. That would be an interesting plot. Of course, American Dad! probably couldn't air a new episode on the same day as this.
The later seasons come before the pre-cancellation onesStewie realizes that no one helped him when he was in a coma, creating homicidal feelings towards his family. This, combined with Meg's snapping in "Dial Meg For Murder" and "Seahorse Seashell Party", causes Lois and Peter to develop a conscience and become better parents. It comes a little bit more naturally for Lois than it does for Peter. Meg, however, has endured too much to just let it go now, and becomes the Bratty Teenage Daughter seen in Seasons 1-3. Brian obsessively tries to reconcile his atheism with having met both God and Jesus, but ultimately fails. Joe Swanson at some point gains the Griffin's respect when he saves Christmas from the Grinch, but is forced to move away for whatever reason. He is eventually able to come back, leading to his Season 1 introduction, though Peter has totally forgotten about him.
Meg didn't get a real parole in "Dial Meg for Murder". She escaped prison.This troper has a theory and believes that when you're in prison, you're SUPPOSE to wait for someone to pick you up or something like that. However, to my belief, Meg probably gained more lines in her sentence and at the end of her original patrol, when her parole was denied, Meg snapped and killed the parole people, stealing some outside clothing, and running from the cops to hide back in the family that had neglected her. This is what I think anyway.
A member of the Griffin Family will be killed off during Season 12.Only question is who...
There'll be an episode which Connie pushed Meg too far and they end up fighting each other.The episode will have some drama like "Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q". Connie ends up getting killed, but by her own fault.
There'll be another one-hour episode, this time about all the previous characters who've died coming back as ghosts or zombies.Perhaps due to one of Stewie's inventions gone horribly wrong. The characters would include:
Quagmire is a "cat person".He was ridiculously endeared to James and doted over him endlessly. In contrast, he has an on off resentment towards Brian, and even when losing his memory and convinced he owned him, he was somewhat repulsed by his dog habits and treated him like a second class citizen. It would make sense his dislike for Brian is only further fueled by him not being a "dog person", let alone to a "filthy mongrel" that pulls off a civilized front and tries to imply he is actually smarter than humans despite it all.
Quagmire is racist towards Middle-Easterns.In "Thanksgiving", he was among those who were unhappy with Kevin's decision to go AWOL from the war in Iraq just because he was sympathetic towards them. When Kevin said Iraq had nothing to due with 9/11, Quagmire said "I guess those moments of silence we had at those sporting events mean nothing to you." And in "Turban Cowboy", Quagmire was quick to judge him before he was revealed to be a terrorist. Though he was right, it was mostly for the wrong reason.
Going off of the end of the third Laugh It Up, Fuzzball special and Cleveland's family moving back to Quahog...If there was to be a parody of The Phantom Menace, the episode will start with the Griffins watching television when the blackout occurs again, but this time Peter gloats because he got a backup generator in case it ever happened again. Cut to the Brown family sitting in the dark in their own house, with Cleveland being forced to tell the story of The Phantom Menace.
Peter and Ernie the Giant Chicken are actually dead and have been replaced by clonesDuring this fight they got cloned, with an explosion destroying the whole laboratory and kill all the clones while throwing away the cloning chamber with them inside. Who knows the actual Peter and Ernie had not already exited the chamber and a pair of clones had not entered it during the mess? Rule of Funny and Comic Book Time are. The Griffins are naturally partial AU versions of The Simpsons, with For Want of a Nail creating a different legacy:
Eventually, someone will call Chris out on that unjustified bullsh*t he gave Brian in "Living On A Prayer"Because a pudgy little masturbation-addicted moron has no right criticizing the guy who isn't afraid to make his opinion knows.
Chris will die in Season 12.
...Or it will be MegBecause Mila Kunis isn't getting any less busy with her film career. And it'll be easy for the show to return to normal without everyone having to grieve for ages since everyone hates her.
...OR we're just being trolledNo one's gonna die. Seth Macfarlane has (not so) secretly wanted the show to end for at least two years, so he wants to get our attention with this, so that Family Guy gets extremely high ratings, then when it turns out no one's gonna die then everyone will boycott the show in rage, the ratings will plummet like crazy, and the show will have to end!
Eventually there will be a scene where Peter will lip-synch with Lois's naggingBecause even Peter isn't too dumb to know that Lois says "For God's sake, Peter, blah blah blah, more time with your family, blah blah blah, all the work I do, blah blah blah" at least Once an Episode.
Stewie is a demon.He has mind-warping powers, which explains why no one seems to notice his schemes and interprets his machines as toys. He's immortal (or at least very, very long lived) and ages far slower than humans; that's why he acts so much older than he looks.
Meg is a child prodigy.She is gifted with mastery at little effort of the arts and great intelligence at the cost of being hated by almost everyone.
Meg will become emo in a future episode(s).She's had plenty of depression/suicidal tendencies, has been known to cut herself at times (like in "Stew-Roids"), and almost nothing goes her way. It's sure to happen eventually.
Vinny is a convenient reincarnation of Brian.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.
Stewie finds a way to fix his time machine and save BrianNot much of a stretch since Brian is appearing in an 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 Vinnie, Vinnie 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 Vinnie(with his owner Leo still alive due to Stewie changing the past) at the park and he soon befriends them both
Brenda was aware that Quagmire and the others murdered JeffMaybe a little out of place considering the breaking news about Brian´s death, but please stick with me on this one: while rewatching Screams of Silence, it occurred to me that Brenda KNEW about Quagmire´s plans to murder Jeff. She knew that her brother would never invite Jeff for a hunting trip. In fact she thought that there was no better excuse to take Jeff to a isolated place where no one would be able to witness it. So she in the end was crying because she was hurt that it had to end this way, but deep down knew there was no other way out.
Quagmire is Brian's killer.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, they'll call him out and stated that he went too far in-universe. Perhaps, even Peter and Lois will be horrified and say that Quagmire's Not So Different from Jeff.
Quagmire will be framed for Brian's deathIn 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 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.
If it wasn't Quagmire, the car which ran over Brianwas driven by… Vinny
The Brian-centric titles are about Vinnie.They'll be changed to be about Vinnie, 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.)
Another character will be killed off and Brian will be brought back. Some of the upcoming episodes do seem to be about Brian, unless they're actually about Vinnie 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.
Brianwill come back as a ghost. Given that supernatural elements exist in the Family Guy universe, it's possible. Ghost Brian could be utilized to help people transition over to Vinnie, yet still not technically cop-out with his death and appease the fan's desire to see him again. Perhaps he'll act as a spiritual advisor helping Stewie deal with survivor's guilt, and generally trying to fix the Big Screwed-Up Family that the Griffins have become. It would help redeem Brian both from whatever pieces of the scrappy heap he still stands on and turn him from a dick to a full-fledged nice guy in a supernatural form of Character Development. Plus there's a whole lot of Flat Earth Atheist jokes when you're a ghost. Which leads me to my next theory...
The next Brian and Stewie episode will take place in the afterlife.It'll be called "Road to Heaven". The plot will be that Stewie, feeling depressed over 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 Stewie Griffin traverse Heaven and Hell? Bonus points if it's inspired by the Divine Comedy.
Brian will return as if nothing has happened and this will be lampshaded in universeBrian 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."
Ernie the Giant Chicken killed BrianThink 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? 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, 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.
Vinny will later become Cleveland's petUpon Brian's return, Vinny will likely be forced to find a new home. Who else but the Brown/Tubbs family to take him in? Especially to make up for their previous dog that Cleveland ran over back in Stoolbend. Imagine what hilarity could come out of a Vinny-Rallo relationship.
Brian will come back in the Christmas episode.In the episode coming up, called "Christmas guy", the description is about Stewie plotting to get the one thing he wants for Christmas, most likely Brian's revival. There are 2 ways this could work:
Brian killed himself.No idea why, but if you watch the now infamous scene where he's hit by the car, notice the type of car it is. It's a prius, just like the car Brian himself owns.
Snoopy killed BrianWhy 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 Logan's Run.
Brian's return will be gradual.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 Walk the Earth, popping up for important episodes, while Vinny remains the main family dog. Then, after several seasons, the Status Quo will be returned.
Grief over Brian's deathwill 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. With Brian gone, Stewie will have a Start of Darkness when he tracks down and brutally kills the driver. Followed by one of the most epic scenes in television history.
Brian's deathwill turn out to be All Just a Dream. I'm kind of surprised nobody's pointed this out yet but the circumstances of Brian's death are remarkably similar to the "death" of Bobby Ewing on 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 The Reveal the same way Dallas did, essentially doing one of the longest Shout Outs in television history.
