The Billy Boys Announce Their Arrival On Peaky Blinders In Brutal Fashion
*** WARNING - THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM THE SECOND EPISODE OF PEAKY BLINDERS SEASON FIVE ***
So, the second episode of the fifth season of Peaky Blinders has just finished - and it's probably for the best, as many viewers seemed like they were struggling to cope with the intensity.
The episode represented a significant ramping up of the drama, with arguably the most shocking scene coming with the arrival of the Billy Boys from Glasgow.
The gang sent a very gory message to Tommy Shelby, shooting Aberama Gold in the shoulder before beating his son Bonnie, strapping him to a crucifix and shooting him dead.
Safe to say, people were thoroughly gripped - though perhaps less convinced by the Glaswegian accents:

The Billy Boys weren't the only source of drama though, with the opening scene - in which Tommy walks through a field littered with landmines - getting people on the edge of their seats from the off:

By the sounds of it, the third episode of the series, 'Strategy', will have us taking up residency on the edge of our seats once again.
The synopsis reads: "Tommy gathers the Peaky Blinders to discuss recent tragic events and to give his orders. The Shelby boys travel to London to meet Mosley, and it's soon revealed who has the upper hand.
"At Arrow House, Linda visits Lizzie to ask her advice, and Polly visits Aberama to pass on Tommy's instructions. Meanwhile, Tommy learns that one of the Peaky Blinders is in danger and sends Arthur and Johnny Dogs on an urgent mission to intervene."
'Strategy' will air on BBC One at 9pm next Sunday.
