Peaky Blinders will be returning to Netflix for season six soon and fans are keen to see what is in store for Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy). At the end of the last season, he was seen pointing a gun at his own head, after seeing visions of his wife Grace (Annabelle Wallis) beckoning him. Fans have taken to Reddit to discuss the idea that Grace is actually still alive.
Is Grace Shelby still alive?
Tommy and Grace went through a turbulent relationship as Grace moved to America and married another man.
She was employed at The Garrison Pub and worked as an undercover agent for the Birmingham Police.
Grace was tasked with getting close to Tommy, but it backfired as she ended up falling for him.
Tommy felt the same way and he was heartbroken when he found out she had been lying to him.
Grace left for New York, but returning in 1922, married to an American businessman.
But when she laid eyes on Tommy again, she could not deny her feelings for him.
They went on to have a son called Charles and were married in 1924 after her husband died.
Sadly, Grace was shot by a bullet that was meant for her husband, and she seemingly died.
Tommy was haunted by the death of his wife and continued to see her in visions.
However, fans are convinced it was all part of Grace’s undercover operation to double-cross Tommy.
One said on Reddit: “Why do I always get this gut feeling that somewhere Grace is alive and that in Season 6, Thomas and Grace will reunite.
“SK said that he wants to end the story with a redeemed Thomas and I don’t see anything less than Grace being alive can actually redeem Thomas Shelby looking at how he always hallucinates about her.
“Also her role as an undercover agent of the crown in S1 was too short and meaningless to give her role an important status in the life of Tommy, I believe that she is yet to complete her mission and that she is still acting as an undercover agent of the crown and she will come back to Tommy once it’s done.
“Only then her role will get an equal status to that of Tommy’s. But the only question that hampers this development is how can she, being a mother, stay away from her child for so many years and how can she not care about expected emotional trauma that Tommy will face once she is gone.
“Or is she in touch with Tommy or with someone who is constantly giving her the information about the wellbeing of her family.”
The fan went on to list reasons as to why they believe Grace was alive, including her military background and connection to the crown.
They also pointed out how there had been no funeral scene, and the gunshot wound did not seem to be in a fatal position.
Another fan added: “She’s gonna come back… my optimism is increasing after reading theories on her.
“Her return can stretch the S6 for 6 episodes otherwise after killing Oswald Mosey I don’t think Tommy has any other work to do other than making his empire go complete legit and if Grace comes back we can see some flashback, some tensions in their relationship, some love .” [Sic]
However, there are some fans who believe Grace’s return would ruin Tommy’s character development.
Another viewer said: “I’d love nothing more than for her to come back alive. I just want my baby Tommy to have some happiness in his life dammit.
“And the fact that they didn’t show me a funeral has always bothered me. From experience watching many other shows, that always means the person isn’t really dead.
“So yeah maybe like 10% of me still has hope she might be alive … That being said though, a lot of years have gone by so I think maybe too much time has gone by at this point.
“There’s definitely a few plausible ways that they could still bring her back regardless of the years that have gone by but idk, I feel like that’s a long shot.
“I really doubt Steven Knight would bring her back alive .” [Sic]
Fans will have to wait and see whether Grace will be brought back in the flash or whether she will appear in flashbacks.
Peaky Blinders seasons 1-5 are on Netflix now.
