Wow. We really can't believe Family Guy would pull something so serious!
But it seems Seth MacFarlane's usually ludicrous cartoon chose heartwrenching over hilarious on Sunday night.
After eleven seasons, the writers decided to kill off a MAJOR character! Executive producer Steve Callaghan says:
"Well, this was an idea that got pitched in the writers room and it sort of caught fire, and we thought it could be a fun way to shake things up. As soon as this idea came up, we started talking about what the next couple episodes could be and we got very excited about the way this change wil affect the family dynamics and the characters."
So who was the character? SPOILER ALERT! (obvi!)
