The 6 Peaky Blinders Episodes We Will Never Forget

The sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders, for much the most beautiful series of the decade, debuts on Netflix on June 10 after a few weeks from the UK programming, followed by a previously unreleased film that will conclude the open ending with which Tommy Shelby goodbye. The stylistically perfect work of Steven Knight - who here dissects once for all his obsession with the moral concept of guilt that already runs through his filmography - is dotted with dark, violent, engaging episodes wrapped in impeccable packaging; the parable of the Birmingham gangster family, the ruthless and "limitless" Tommy, the self-destructive Arthur, the vengeful Michael and the beautiful and lamented Polly is littered with pivotal milestones, in episodes and scenes contained in those episodes that constitute milestones of the history of television.

One of the best episodes in the history of television, starts as a heist movie - with Alfie and the others involved in the jewelry scam - to become the pretext that lays bare the inner conflict of two Shelby brothers during Izabella and Tatiana's debauched party. Party with hilarious premises - the search of the naked Shelby brothers in search of hidden tattoos with a very embarrassed Arthur (but that "There you go ladies, Made in fucking Birmingham!" Redeems it in a big way) - ends up showing his psychological breakdown. Arthur gives in to sin and in despair lets himself be devoured by lust; Tommy is brought to his knees by Tatiana, who tortures him by stirring up the pain still alive at Grace's death, depriving him of control and managing to bring to the surface the feelings of a man constantly gnawed by his own inner demons and perpetually tempted by suicide.

The episode of the kidnapping of Tommy's son, the more or less conscious involvement of allies, a bomb on a train, the epochal confrontation between the peaky blinder boss and Alfie Solomon, the elusive and bloodthirsty Jewish criminal played by Tom Hardy. An episode built like a thriller, with Tommy reconstructing the moves of the kidnappers to trace the culprit, culminating in the clash between him and the Shelby, blinded by rage. The quarrel, however, takes an unexpected turn, Alfie verbally attacks Tommy reminding him which of the two is the monster who has committed the worst crimes. The recurring theme of Tommy "without limits" returns. Cornered in a verbal duel that remains one of the most engaging and thrilling moments in TV history, Tommy spares Alfie and a new relationship is created between the two. The episode also marks the end of the arc of Father Hughes, played by the great Paddy Considine, one of the vilest villains of the series.

The best episode of the early days, the one that definitively establishes the superiority of the series, culminates with Polly taking revenge on the unspeakable Chester Campbell, played by Sam Neill. Persuaded that the matriarch of peaky blinders will not have the courage to kill him in cold blood, moreover in the crowd, convinces the antagonist to try to save his life by appealing to the bond created between the two. woman against which he has used violence, he is killed with a gunshot - and a laconic "Don't fuck with the peaky blinders" - by Polly, in the most intimate and brutal way. Polly, as predicted, gets away with it, getting lost in the crowd. In the same episode, Timmy will resoundingly escape death with the help of Churchill, but this remains Polly's episode.

The end of an era. The final episode of the fourth season sees Tommy resolving more than one issue, starting with the feud with Changretta's family, who tried to exterminate his loved ones for most of the year. It is an episode full of twists and turns, of deaths that have not died real and unsuspected alliances, but also the showdown, apparently final (but we will discover that it is not) between Tommy and his old friend Alfie, who retired from business but who has betrayed and cheated Shelby several times over the years. Alfie tries to distract Tommy with a torrent of words, lying about not being armed, bragging about a deadly disease and trying to pity him by explaining that the dog Cyril will feel alone, only to shoot him treacherously. It is a very short duel, filmed on a dazzling white beach, which sees both fall but only Tommy get up.

The fourth season had begun with a diaspora: after all the Shelbys - Arthur, John, Michael and Polly - the less Tommy had come one step away from execution due to his machinations, each had taken their own path unaware that the Italian mafia was considering exterminating them. One by one, on Christmas day. The youngest of the Shelbys, One of the Shelby brothers dies in an ambush under a hail of bullets, Michael is dying, and the second episode opens with Polly's anger, out of her mind and the pain of Esme, widowed. Arthur and Tommy's visit to the morgue is heartbreaking, but this episode must be remembered for the power of words. Few series boast such insightful dialogues, monologues and jokes as Peaky Blinders and with those words, relying on mourning, that Tommy reunites the family to take revenge on Changretta & Co.

The season of politics, the one with Tommy struggling with a career that forces him to give the maximum of his intelligence, his shrewdness and his patience. Tommy is a strategist, he is a gangster, he is a man devoured by anger, guilt and demons that remind him that his limit is that he has no limits. The Nazi Oswald Mosley, rising star of politics, describes it, in a memorable comparison, as "the perfect balance between Dionysus and Apollo: irrational impetus controlled by reason and self-reflection". The focus on Tommy's nature does not stop there, the episode also shows him hallucinating - again, his dead wife - and corroded by the suicidal intentions culminating in the season finale, when the trigger of that revolver aimed at his head pulls it really.
