This is what I awoke to today. I haven't been watching the current season, so I missed this yesterday. I woke up to being told that Brian was killed off "Family Guy". I was not thrilled. He was my favorite character. I love how he acts like a person, but every so often you are reminded that he is actually a dog. I also love his relationship with Stewie. So When I found out they killed him, I was upset. I decided to watch the episode on Hulu. I really shouldn't have. I should preface this with the fact that my dog died earlier this year and it was completely devastating to me. I still haven't fully recovered from it, especially since I came to the realization that this will be the first holiday season without him. Anyhow, so I watched the episode. Stewie and Brian have another adventure, or misadventure, with the time machine. They fix their mistake. When they get back, Stewie decided that it would be best to destroy the time machine to avoid any further temptation to mess with time. Makes sense. He even goes so far as to crush all the pieces at the junk yard. There Brian finds a hockey net. They decided to play street hockey. Brian was setting up the net while Stewie goes back inside for his knee pads. Brian gets hit by a car. Right in front of Stewie. They take Brian to the vet, who does all he can, but unfortunately he is not going to make it. He tells the Griffins to go say goodbye. Brian wakes up briefly to say a very sweet goodbye, and then dies. What.The.Fuck. I'm thinking, no, Stewie manages to fix the time machine and goes and changes things. Nope. He can't fix it. He can't get an important part. I'm balling. To make matters worse, after a month, the Griffins go and get another dog, Vinny. Granted Vinny has a sob story, his elderly owner recently died, just before the Griffins take him home, but still, he is NOT Brian. The rest of the family is taken with him as they get over the over the loss, but Stewie isn't really having it. He misses Brian. Vinny finds him outside crying and grieving. Eventually, they bond over their own losses and it ends with Vinny sleeping in Stewie's room. But that doesn't make ME feel any better. I don't want Vinny, I want Brian. This isn't Dr. Who, you just can't kill people off like that. I think I would be more okay if it were a person, like Chris, Joe, or Quagmire, but why Brian? I guess it just hits very close to home. I lost Patches suddenly at eight years old, the same as Brian. Patches was my baby. So, the loss is still fresh. This just sucks. I have a sad. I may give Vinny a chance. We will see
