Peaky Blinders first look as Tommy Shelby gets close to Gina
How will Tommy react after episode 3's shocking ending?
Contains spoilers for Peaky Blinders season 6 episodes 1-3.
Peaky Blinders is nearing its endgame now and Tommy Shelby might never have been quite as unpredictable as he is now.
After the devastating death of his daughter Ruby at the end of the last episode, it's hard to say just what Cillian Murphy's character will do next or how his mental state is.
Now we have some first-look images of the hotly-anticipated fourth episode of the final season, and it seems that Tommy may be getting close to Michael's wife Gina, played by Anya Taylor-Joy.
Gina and Tommy have had a less than friendly relationship so far, so it will be interesting to see just how this cosy-looking encounter pans out.
Elsewhere in the episode, we can expect to see more of Stephen Graham's Hayden Stagg, as Tommy appears to be facing off with the union conveyor.
The fourth episode is called Sapphire, and the official plot synopsis states: "Tommy establishes a connection between crime and political power that could alter the course of history. He also receives life-changing news from an unexpected source."
Fans had mixed reactions to episode 3 after it aired, with some in tears following the shock ending and praising Graham's introduction, while others called the episode "dull".
The cast list for next week's episode highlights the continued presence of Esme as she aids Tommy, while the episode will also see further scheming from the show's fascist villains Sir Oswald Mosley and Lady Diana Mitford.
Whatever happens next, it's going to be dramatic – with Amber Anderson telling RadioTimes.com that her character Diana Mitford is set to "shock people".
"I think people are going to be quite shocked," she predicted. "I don't think that the show has seen a character like her before because she's not using violence or force to get what she wants.
"And I think it's that ability to sit in situations and say these extremely problematic things, but so calmly and so casually, and I think that's what makes people very uncomfortable."
If you are wondering what all the fuss was about with curses, a sapphire and Esme's return, then we have you covered.
Peaky Blinders season 6 also stars Natasha O'Keeffe, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle, Finn Cole, Packy Lee, Ned Dennehy, Harry Kirton, Charlene McKenna, Neil Maskell, James Frecheville, and Tom Hardy.
