Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)
And as anyone who's watched Family Guy for a significant amount of time knows, the show features one-off gags but also has some ongoing storylines. I'm going to go out on a crazy limb and suggest that if Brian's death isn't a permanent development then it's at least going to be a multi-episode arc.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
