It has been quite a long time since we saw the fifth season of Peaky Blinders, and now finally, Peaky Blinders Season 6 Episode 1 is here.

With the incoming of this new episode, the audience is given a taste of whatever is about to happen with the Shelby family in the upcoming times. All of us indeed have in mind the loss of Helen McCroy, who played the character of Aunty Polly Gray.

Helen McCroy had cancer, and she has passed away in the previous year. We would all be waiting to see how the show and the Shelby family pay their last tributes and respect to Aunt Polly.

If we go back to the show’s fifth season, we will see that Tommy Shelby’s attempt to kill Oswald Mosley, the tyrant politician, had gone to waste. Being too frustrated, he pointed a gun at his head.

When Peake Blinders Season 6 Episode 1 starts, we see Tommy trying to kill himself with the gun. He would have if Arthur did not empty the bullets.

As the new season’s first episode comes up, we see Tommy Shelby determined to shoot himself at his head with his gun. This determination led him to do the act.

This would have been the end of Thomas Shelby in the show if his brother Arthur had not stepped into the scene earlier to empty the bullets in the gun. We see the head of the family at his lowest of times, but he is still alive. This is enough for the show’s fans to understand that there is a lot left in the show for Tommy.

On the other hand, if we look at Cosmo Jarvis’ character, Barney Thompson, he does not have a good ending. He had been sent to finish work against Oswald Mosley, but he ended up in a bad patch.

The Irish Republican Army is currently protecting Oswald Mosley. The soldiers in the IRA have come from three different brigades, all belonging to Dublin.

The Shelby family has significantly been affected by the deaths of Aberma and Barney Thompson. Both of them had a significant role in killing Oswald Mosley. However, the death of Polly Gray has had the most effect on Tommy’s mind and all the others of the Shelby family.

Throughout the seasons of Peaky Blinders, we have seen Helen McCrory pulling off the character as the leading lady in the family. As we all know, she passed away after suffering from cancer for a long time, back in 2021.

As we reach towards the ending of Peaky Blinders Season 6 Episode 1, we get to see that Ruby, Tommy’s daughter, has fallen ill. While she was sleeping, she saw a dream. In her dream, the words “Tickna mora o’beng” went on repeating again and again.

These are gipsy words as Lizzie talks about it to Tommy. Tommy starts panicking on hearing this, and he tells Lizzie, his sister, to keep a close eye on Ruby. We also know that Ruby sees a man with green eyes in her dream.

Out of concern, Ruby is barred from going to school. She is kept at home and, most importantly, away from the river. Ruby is also prevented from either riding or even going near a horse or even the stables.

Esmeralda, a gypsy, will be consulted as a doctor for Ruby. They will also put a Black Madonna around Ruby’s neck which will protect her from having such dreams or any such negative outcome.

If you think about what is Ruby actually seeing in her dream, then in simple words, according to Steven Knight, the creator, it is the Devil. Thus we can surely understand that whatever is happening is not good.

Now with Aunt Polly dead, Tommy is at his emptiest. However, he believes that every downfall in one’s path brings in more significant opportunities in the upcoming times. The Shelbys are now friends with Winston Churchill. This is a huge plus point on their part.

With this huge support, Tommy can exchange his illegal supply of gin and whisky to the United States in exchange for opium. He will be making Michel Gray do this job.

Tommy has made up his plan to use Michael Gray as a pawn. Through him, Tommy will be able to reach his target, Uncle Jack- Jack Nelson. This character has actually been derived from Joseph Kennedy Sr., a politician and businessman from Boston.

As we reach towards the end of the episode, we see that Michael is very disgusted with the fact that Tommy is currently working with the people who had killed Polly. Being Polly’s son, Michael would surely demand revenge against them, and Tommy knows about it very well. Thus Tommy has tactfully imprisoned him to carry on with his business.
