Peaky Blinders season five ended on a cliffhanger, leaving concerned for Tommy Shelby’s (played by Cillian Murphy) wellbeing. After a plan to assassinate MP Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) failed, Tommy grew frustrated by the outcome and was last seen screaming and pointing a gun at his head. Viewers of the BBC One drama will have to wait until season six to find out if he actually did pull the trigger on himself.

In season three, Italian mob boss Vicente Changretta (Kenneth Colley) met with Arthur (Paul Anderson) and John Shelby (Joe Cole) after they got his son Angel Changretta’s (Pedro Caxade) restaurant burnt down.
This was because he had an interest in Lizzie Stark (Natasha O’Keeffe), because of her close connections to the Shelby family and they didn’t want her to have anything to do with him.
Vicente wanted an explanation which he did not get from the Shelbys and started publicly boasting how he was going to kill John.
To get him to be quiet, John brutally beat up his son Angel but this leads to Vicente getting his revenge on the family.

Rather than attacking John directly, he took out his anger on his son Tommy and his wife Grace Shelby (Annabelle Wallis).
At the Shelby Charity Foundation Dinner, a hit man, hired by Vicente, caused mayhem when he pulled out a gun and shot Grace in the chest.
Heartbroken and filled with rage following the death of his wife, Tommy had both Vicente and his son Angel killed, which he thought would end the feud.
But Vicente’s other son Luca Changretta (Adrien Brody) was not willing to let this go.
What happened to Adrien Brody’s character Luca Changretta in Peaky Blinders?
Luca appeared at the beginning of the fourth season of Peaky Blinders, when he first arrived in Birmingham.
He set up a meeting with Tommy at his factory and gave him a false name so he wouldn’t know who he was related to.
But Tommy already knew exactly who he was and Luca soon dropped the act, admitting the only reason he was in Birmingham was to take down the entire Shelby family.
The two agreed they would fight with honour, not harming any children and police would not be used which Tommy soon decided against.

Luca and Tommy had started fighting but it was soon called off when the police arrived and broke it up.
Tommy had called the police to ensure this happened as he didn’t want to fight Luca straight away, before knowing what else he had in store.
The Brummie gangster later found out Luca and his mother wanted Tommy to either live or leave him to die last after murdering the rest of his family.
After hearing this, Tommy knew he had to get rid of Luca for good.

The pair once again got into another fist fight in the street but this time Tommy was more prepared.
In episode five of season four, Tommy repeatedly smashed Luca’s head into broken glass before enlisting the help of his brother.
After violently beating up Luca, Arthur shot Luca in the head, finally putting an end to the families’ rivalry for good.
