The introduction of Abermama Gold has been a gamechanger for the coming war between the Shelbys and the Mafia. And *spoiler alert* we now know what's coming up in the next episode.

Apparently, the Italians launch another attack on the Peaky Blinders. Tommy realises that the Shelbys need to evolve if they are to survive, but some of the family are reluctant to part with tradition.

As the strike takes hold at the Lanchester factory, Tommy pays a personal visit to Jessie Eden, but he is outmanoeuvred when she reveals something she knows about his past.

Changretta plots to continue the vendetta in the most devastating way possible. As well as identifying an enemy of the Shelby family who could help him, Luca makes direct contact with someone at the heart of the Peaky Blinders organisation.

Wowza, it's sure going to be interesting viewing.

It comes after the shocking revelation that Finn Cole, who plays the role of Michael Gray, is not the only member of his family to appear in the show.

That's because he works alongside his real life brother Joe Cole, who plays John Shelby in the series.

This isn't the first time that the brothers have starred alongside each other though, as they both made their acting debut in the 2012 film Offender.

Joe played the lead role in the thriller, which was set in a juvenile prison, whereas Finn had a smaller role in the film, credited only as 'Riot Boy'. Watch a trailer for the film below...

Finn Cole also stars in Animal Kingdom, however producers say that his role in Peaky Blinders had nothing to do with the casting.

Writer and producer Jonathan Lisco said: "While casting J, I wasn't looking at credits. We were looking for someone who could move us or break our hearts, or have some kind of riveting effect."

Lisco continued: "When I saw his tape, I didn't know that he was in Peaky Blinders. He has an inscrutable quality but doesn't come off merely as a cipher.

"J has a lot going on behind his eyes, but you didn't feel like he's thoroughly innocent. He's not some pure kid."
