After two weeks worth of rage and outcries, the folks behind the popular animated series Family Guy decided to resurrect Brian Griffin, the talking dog, from the dead… sort of. During a new episode titled “Christmas Guy” shown over the weekend, Stewie Griffin, the family’s in-house evil genius, decided to travel back in time and prevent the car accident that killed Brian. The whole story arc started near Thanksgiving Day when an errant car ran Brian over during a street hockey game. The sequence of events incited anger among fans, who took to social media to express their rage (i.e. #BringBrianBack). One fan even created a petition on Change.org., which gotten more than 128,000 signatures since. Yet, the show’s creator, Seth MacFarlane, and his production team remained steadfast in their decision. It wasn’t till Sunday night that MacFarlane gave hints via Twitter of their original intent to bring Brain back in the very place.
