During the latest episode of Family Guy, the Griffins became a target of criticisms after Brian’s offensive tweet became viral. He was forced to kick out of the house for the family’s safety. As a result, Brian stayed on an apartment in one of Quahog’s sketchier neighborhoods. We ended up seeing Brian living alone and sad.
According to a report by TVLine, the twist will stick through for two more episodes. The recent episode, titled “The D in Apartment 23,” is the first of Brian’s three-episode arc which will end on the December 3 episode. On the next episode, this coming November 19, Brian will work at a suicide hotline in which he will strike up a romance with his new co-worker (voiced by Kristen Bell).
This is not the first time that Brian moved out of the house for multiple episodes. During the third season, Brian left Quahog for Hollywood in which he ended up working as a porn director. Four years ago, the show temporarily killed off Brian which resulted in multiple episodes without him. He was brought back thanks to Stewie and his time machine.
The next episode, which airs this November 19, is titled “Petey IV.” On Thanksgiving weekend, Peter discovers an alternate ending in the Russian version of one of his favorite films and writes to Vladimir Putin, who comes to Quahog. The B-plot will be about the aforementioned Brian striking up a romance with his new co-worker. Bell, Iwan Rheon, and Jeff Probst will guest voice during the episode.
In the December 3 episode titled “Crimes and Meg’s Demeanor,” Peter encourages Meg to attend a high school party, where she takes up drinking, which both concerns and delights her father. Meanwhile, Brian begins spying on his neighbors and suspects Principal Shepherd of a crime. Gary Cole and Emily Osment will guest voice during the episode.
Family Guy airs every Sunday at 9:00pm ET/PT on Fox.
