The Ending Of
Peaky Blinders
Season 6
Explained
By PAULI POISUO
THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR "Peaky Blinders" Season 6.

SPOILER WARNING!

A significant portion of Season 6 is devoted to Tommy Shelby's impending death, however, he realizes through a vision that the doctor who diagnosed him works with Oswald Mosley, and made up his fatal condition to keep him occupied. It's a neat way to keep the main character alive and allow him to say goodbyes to everyone.
Goodbye Tommy
The devastating death of Helen McCrory in 2021 meant that Polly Gray is largely absent from the final season of "Peaky Blinders.” She is killed in the first episode by the IRA but her presence is felt until the very last episode of the show as the Peaky Blinders get their revenge in the finale.
Aunt Polly
Horses have been an important feature of "Peaky Blinders," both as plot points and as metaphors for Tommy's inner turmoil. The show’s first episode opens with Tommy riding in the streets of Birmingham and it ends with him riding away, free of his material possessions and old life's responsibilities... and, for once, his steed is white.
Tommy Rides
The second horse-themed detail is that the guy who saves Tommy's life by returning Michael's car bomb back to the sender is none other than Johnny Dogs (Packy Lee). You might remember him as the man who gifted Tommy the fateful horse in Season 1.
