Peaky Blinders has returned for its final outing on BBC One and the historic TV crime drama is set a few years after the previous season. Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) traveled to the island of Miquelon, where he was coldly received. He handled the situation in a surprisingly rational way despite his confrontation with an old enemy and a behavior expert told Express.co.uk he would emerge victorious due to his change in tactics.
Season six picked up immediately after the season five finale with Tommy Shelby holding a gun to his head.
However, it turned out that his brother Arthur (Paul Anderson) pulled the bullets out of the gun before he had a chance to act.
Viewers discovered that it was the Irish Republican Army who intervened to stop the assassination of Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin).
They said they had to keep Mosley alive, much to Tommy’s chagrin.
The first episode also touched on the death of Helen McCrory, who played Polly Gray.

His son Michael (Finn Cole) paid tribute to him, saying, “No matter what it takes, no matter how many lies I have to tell, I’ll get my revenge on Tommy Shelby.”
A four-year time jump placed Tommy on the island of Miquelon, French territory of Newfoundland.
Since quitting drinking alcohol, it has made Tommy a calmer and more reasonable person.
However, he was still up to his old tricks after he tipped off the police that Michael was transporting a crate of opium to Boston.
Michael went to jail in Boston, so he’ll be away from Tommy for a while.
“As a result, his body language has also evolved and his non-verbal communication has become even more stoic – almost dragon-like.
“Tommy seems calm, observing what is going on around him, waiting in the wings before no doubt planning to unleash all hell.”
He added: “They say sometimes we have to go backwards to go forward and I think that’s true for Tommy.
“Every time he takes casualties, he regroups, comes up with a new plan and moves. He displays a very strong and dominant posture with his body and always has.
“For example, he maintains strong eye contact, speaks in a calm voice, and uses silence with those he doesn’t trust in order to make them feel uncomfortable and get the answers/truths he needs. requires.
“These are all behavioral traits that exert power and control.”
History has shown that even with the odds against him, Tommy’s determination is unbeatable.
Darren said: “For Tommy, failure is not an option this time around. He is determined to do whatever it takes to ensure the Shelby family gets what they want and what Tommy thinks they want. ‘she deserves.
“He will invade other people’s personal space if he feels they have violated his code and I believe Tommy has an even stronger fire in him now to achieve his goals and he is going to make it extremely difficult for his enemies to beat him. .
“I think previous versions of Tommy maybe saw him a bit in over his head, however, based on his general behavior in the season six trailer, it looks like Tommy has found a level of much deeper conviction and belief in what he has intended.
“I don’t think Moseley’s failed assassination attempt diminished Tommy’s conviction at all, instead it sought to strengthen it.”
Viewers will have to wait and see if Tommy is able to maintain his calm, collected demeanor throughout the season.
Peaky Blinders returns to BBC One on Sunday at 9 p.m.
