Peaky Blinders Fans Will Love The Return Of Key Character In Latest Episode

*WARNING - CONTAINS SPOILERS*

With season six of the hit British crime drama well underway, a beloved character has made his return to Peaky Blinders in episode two, which aired on Sunday (6 March).

As the first episode ended last week, we learnt that Thomas Shelby is getting more and more involved with the fascist party, in a quest to infiltrate the group with attempts to eventually take it down.

However, at the same time, the mischievous gangster wants to expand his empire and is transitioning from the post-prohibition era, to now selling opium, a very addictive drug in those days.

In typical Tommy fashion, he tries to kill two birds with one stone and decides to set up a meeting with Jack Nelson a.k.a, Uncle Jack (James Frecheville) who is the leader of the Boston gangsters - it's also hinted that he's a supporter of fascism. Uncle Jack happens to be uncle of Michael Gray's (Finn Cole) American girlfriend, Gina Gray’s (Anya Taylor-Joy).

In episode one, Tommy decides to frame his cousin Michael and put in jail while he tries to arrange a meeting with Nelson.

It's important to note that Michael still blames Tommy for the death of his mum (Aunt Polly) and wants to kill him.

Anyway, with the hopes of meeting the Boston gang leader, Cillian Murphy's character decided to get in touch with an old ally from Camden, who has a common interest.

The Jewish gangster who somehow escaped death in season four after getting shot in the head - Alfie Solomons (Tom Hardy) - made a return in episode two of the new season.

Although he's now blind in his left eye, thanks to Tommy, Alfie is acutely aware of the rise of the fascist Oswald Mosley, as well as Tommy's career in politics.

This time, Tommy wants Solomon to go in with him to sell opium abroad to help 'shift the balance of power in Boston back in favour of the Solomon family', rather that of Jack Nelson.

As we learn later on in the episode, Nelson, who eventually has a meeting with Tommy, wants to meet Mosley to discuss politics, one would assume.

The official synopsis for season two reads: "Tommy gets involved in a power game with fascists, freedom-fighters and Boston gangsters.

"As the players plan to double cross him, Tommy visits an old ally in Camden."

The next episode of Peaky Blinders will air on Sunday 13 March on BBC One and will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

We can't wait.
