Everyone was shocked. How to continue the series? And why they made him die? Here, something is wrong,and shows 2 oddities.
WEIRDNESS 1) THE CAR
First point, it popped out from the blue.
Second point, the car looks a lot like Brian's one. Stewie had the Prius involved in an accident, it is possible that Brian changed it, while choosing another similar (Lexus?)
Third, it faced the curve with too much frenzy. As if it was being chased by someone. But there was no one else, apart from that car, on that road. Nobody behind it. Ok, it might have been a reckless/drunk driver, but ...
Fourth (and most important)point :The windows were tinted! As if they DID NOT want us to see who was driving!
Last point: ok, there are people who hit and do not stop, but the driver did not hesitate to pull under Brian even a second. And there was no darkness, or fog.
Neither Brian crossed the road suddenly.
I found this part very disturbing, but also mortally charming, full of questions.
SECOND WEIRDNESS) BRIAN AND STEWIE
Here starts the more subtle part.
Brian noticed the car that was coming only the last moments, maybe he did not even have time to realize;however, in his eyes, no emotion.
Astonish, fear, surprise. None of these. As if he was gone, ineluctable and resigned, to his fate. As if he was waiting it for him though.
And before, he seemed very sorry for 's Time Machine Stewie, his flagship through inventions. Maybe Stewie would not really make it out, maybe it was a gesture dictated by anger, which then repent, maybe ...
He COULD have make him REBUILD IT. IN DESPERATE TIMES...
Maybe I am a little carried away, but think about it. A Time Machine ... It gives immense power.
A huge mess to destroy it.
