Spoiler alert: This post contains details about the end of the series Diseased blind: Before it debuted on Netflix on June 10 in the U.S. and other markets, Period Gangster Epic Diseased blind‘Tonight’s sixth and final season has ended with a feature-length episode on BBC One in the UK. Made by Steven Knight, who warned me before the final “to expect the unexpected” Piki Operative and went out in top and twisty form with Godfather– esque flourishes. Since its debut in 2013, and gaining a strong global fanbase, the Shelby family is ending as a TV series, however, Knight has confirmed that a movie is about to happen – and considering how it ended, there is still much to be done. Exploration
So how did this iteration wrap things up for Tommy Shelby (Celian Murphy) and the rest of Birmingham’s crew? Throughout this season, we are reminded of the words of Aunt Polly (the late Helen McCrory) who told Tommy in Season 5, “There will be a fight. And one of you will die. But I can’t say which one. ” That break was reconsidered tonight, and after a bit of a bait-and-switch, it happened – though not as much as we’d believed based on some previous releases this season.

The episode begins with the release of cousin Michael Gray (Finn Cole) from Norfolk Prison in Boston, where Tommy sent him to the season opener. And again, Michael swears, “I’ll avenge Tommy Shelby,” whom he blamed for Aunt Polly’s death at the end of Season 5.
We have Tommy’s wife Lizzie (Natasha O’Keefe) crying in the bedroom of their recently deceased daughter Ruby. Tommy announced that he was returning to Mickellon Island to collect $ 5 million owed for the opium shipment. Lizzie tells Tommy that she’s leaving him and announces, “You damn, Tommy … a curse that can never be lifted.”
In fact, in response to being diagnosed with a serious cerebral tuberculosis a few episodes ago, Tommy Shelby began to fix his issues at the company. No one else is aware of the diagnosis until Arthur (Paul Anderson) discovers the X-ray and flaps Tommy’s face, “I know, brother, I know.”
Tommy tells his siblings and WWI comrades, “We’ve been dead for a long time; At least now I have a certificate … I missed all the shots. “It’s an emotional scene because Tommy advises Arthur to keep the news to himself: Let it be. As long as people know the truth, I will leave. ” Arthur finally gets rid of the opium, can’t even sit for the first few episodes of the season, and hugs his brother in a long hug. Tommy says, “I’m still here. We have work to do. ”
Tommy’s illegitimate son Duke (Conrad Khan) is already inspiring the family. The Garrison Pub is joined by Garrison’s younger brother Finn (Harry Kirton) with whom Bookie Billy (Emmet Scanlan) had some antisocial transactions, who was present. We were waiting for the hammer to fall on Billy and it was coming soon. Tommy tells the assembled people that his family’s Man’s Arrow House has a job for them, including deleting information about people who need to dig up “more valuable than gold,” corpses, and expensive French wine that should be drunk. “It will be like a farewell party.” Embarrassed, Billy asks, “Will there be girls?”
Cut to Boston and the fabulous Art-Deco Pad where Gina (Anya Taylor-Joy) reunites with husband Michael. Ever-Steely, she tells him that Arthur will have dinner at the garrison on Sunday night, “maybe our men can drive and shoot Arthur through the glass.” Michael shows restraint as “this business is between me and Tommy,” but Gina insists, “Arthur must die too … Deeply, Arthur and Tommy want to die anyway. On Sunday, we’ll give them whatever they want.”
Go back to Tommy, sitting in the dark house of Parliament when Diana Mitford (Amber Anderson) enters and suggests that they “fuck on the bench.” Tommy: “I’ll fuck, but you have to cross the floor, because I refuse to fuck Tory on the bench.” Mitford’s fianc, fascist Oswald Mosley (Sam Clafflin) emerges from the shadows inviting Tommy to his wedding. “It’s in Berlin. We’re getting married in Fহhrer’s own presence.” Next set an important plot point.
The action is moved between different settings as the score is about to be settled. Michael arrives at Mickelon Island where a leather bag containing a bomb is being loaded into a car; Birmingham’s Blinder team goes to Arrow House; Tommy is seen returning to Aunt Polly’s prophecy; And Arthur is in the garrison.
At Arrow House, the Duke sees a showdown in the kitchen and takes control and expels Finn from the family, while Billy takes a bullet to his forehead. Tommy’s plane, meanwhile, is landing in Mikelin as IRA operative Captain Swing (Charlene McKenna) and her crew – who killed Polly – head to the garrison to take care of Arthur.
A cat-and-mouse game begins on the street outside the pub where Arthur turns the tables on the killers, using decoys, a machine gun, and poison smoke bombs – even in the Odessa Steps sequence. Battleship Potemkin. Before killing Arthur Swing, he said, “Her name was Elizabeth Gray. She was my aunt Polly, “and she shot him in the chest.
Back in Mickeln, Tommy and Michael travel to the place where the opium is stored so that Tommy can pay him $ 5 million. When Michael jumps out of the car to retrieve his cigarettes from the bar, things don’t go according to plan as the bomb switches to another car, leaving Tommy unharmed. Johnny Dogs (Paki Lee) Thank God for doing well.
Shocked Michael tells Tommy, “You kill him.” Tommy replies, “Polly has made her own choice,” to which Michael says, “No one near you likes his own, we can’t avoid you.” Tommy tells Michael, “Polly comes to see me in my dreams; she will never see me again” and then shoots Michael in the eye. “I have no limits,” says Tommy.
Back inside the bar, Alfie Solomon (Tom Hardy) appears, sharing comments on his trademark fashion. Tommy tells her, “You know, Alfie, a lot of people go to great lengths to kill me, and I’m dying anyway.” Alfie: “Is that applause?” Then, “Speaking of being dead for years, I can only sincerely recommend it.” It’s a great exchange between the two overall.
Now back in Birmingham, Tommy comes out of the Arrow House as it is blown stunningly behind him. Afterwards, he hosts an outdoor meal in the gypsy caravan for the remaining members of the Piki Blinders, “back to where we started, horses and caravans, vagrants and thieves.” Toasting his family, he suggests that Ada (Sophie Rundle) run for office one day. Ada is still unaware of Tommy’s diagnosis and is confused about his plans to go away “for a while”.
Fast-forward a month, and Tommy is living in a caravan parked in a wide open countryside. Today, the day he decides to toss his coin, he will put a bullet in his head. But after paying homage to Grace, Lizzie, Ruby, John, and Polly – and uttering the series’ familiar “In the Black Midwinter” – Ruby approaches Tommy on a visit. “Did Polly send you, or am I dead?” He asks the little girl to tell him she’s not sick. “Let the fire go out, light the fire again, and be warm, and you will see that you have to live.”
Tommy pulls out a burnt newspaper clipping with a picture of the Oswald / Mitford wedding in Berlin, and at the party he can recognize Dr. Holford (Annurin Bernard). The revelation sends him to corner the doctor at his estate. “How was the wedding in Berlin?” Tommy asks when he explains that he has found all the connections. “I’m guessing you all decided that the only person who could kill Tommy Shelby was Tommy Shelby himself,” he told Halford, adding that Tommy had become a different person, unable to kill another in cold blood. While he was about to do so, a bell rang and Tommy sighed, “Eleven hours. War. Peace at the end. Peace at the end” and sent a bullet to the ground.
The soundtrack concludes with Lisa O’Neill’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “All the Tied Horses”. Tommy, on his white horse, watches his caravan rise into the fire.
