Peaky Blinders Fans Think Alfie Solomons Is Still Alive And Will Return For Season Finale
On Sunday night the final episode of season five of Peaky Blinders airs and fans reckon we might be in for a good one with many suggesting Alfie Solomons might be making a very welcome return.
As you'll probably remember Alfie, played by Tom Hardy, was bumped off at the end of last season by Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) - which seemed pretty final, right?
Except that a number of fans reckon they've spotted a teeny little hint that perhaps he's not brown bread after all.
At the end of last week's episode, Tommy is talking to Billy Boy leader Jimmy McCavern (Brian Gleeson).
As the pair began discussing which gangs can support fascist leader Oswald Mosley (played by Sam Claflin) in London when Tommy said: "I would suggest the most competent organiser of men in the south is Alfie Solomons."
To which Jimmy replied: "He's dead and he's Jewish - and I'd say as far as our boss is concerned him being dead would be less of an obstacle than him being Jewish."
In response Tommy keeps schtum and then changes the subject, which some fans think is significant, as he didn't confirm Alfie was dead.
They also spotted that Tommy appeared to speak about Alfie in the present tense, as though he's still very much in the land of the living.
Fan theories have gone into overdrive on social media, with one person posting: "Alfie Solomons is alive and he's gonna kill the fascist next week, I'm tellin ya [sic]."
Another posted: "So Alfie Solomons isn't dead? Thomas never confirmed it when my Billy boys said he was dead."
A third added: "Alfie Solomons is not dead they will end season five with him coming back I reckon, even if it doesn't happen it would be an awesome plot twist."
So what do you reckon? A significant clue for eagle-eyed fans to latch on to or are people reading too much into it? Thankfully, we've not got too long to find out because you can catch the final episode of season five of Peaky Blinders (and possibly the return of Alfie) on Sunday at 9pm on BBC1.
