Peaky Blinders Season 6: Plot Details
Season 5 of Peaky Blinders left the audience in a massive turmoil. The fifth season ended with Tommy Shelby screaming at his dead wife, Grace. Not just this, he was at a gunpoint before the show cut out to black. Now, the fans are curious how Tommy will sum up to the entire situation? Will he give up (that is not the case for Tommy) or will stand against the one who betrayed him?
Although, as mentioned in the podcast, Obsessed with Peaky Blinders, the audience should already be able to find out who did all this. Moreover, as per the chronology, the plot is approaching close to World War 2. Therefore, things would definitely get heated up in the Birmingham city, with Oswald Mosley getting more grip on overall power. Stay tuned for more updates on Peaky Blinders Season 6.
