Let’s Talk about Peaky Blinder season 5 Plot
Tommy Shelby has got more power as he is elected as MP for Birmingham South. His clan is going to make the most from this power. Politics will become a family affair for Shelby since Paul Anderson made it clear that Arthur is gaining political connections.
In the upcoming season, Shelby might run for the Prime Minister. According to showrunner, Shelby has a plan to use his newly found power to manipulate his surroundings even more.
Anderson explained Metro that, “What it gives Arthur and his family is more power. Tommy is in a position of power, and he can only get stronger in that position. We’ll all have more cover, more opportunity, and more protection.
“Becoming an MP is just Tommy expanding his empire – his ambition is to have power in a lot of areas, and that’s just another extension of his power.”
Tommy is facing a mental break. In Peaky Blinders Season 4, we saw that Tommy was forced to come out of his psychological setback and handle his family issues. Now the question is whether he is confronting post-traumatic stress due to all the experience he had in the First world war. Would he come back to his senses or his mental health would deteriorate in the upcoming season?
In an interview with the Birmingham Mail, Steven Knight creator of the show explained, “There is so much stuff happening as we are going into the ’30s. The depression and the rise of fascism form part of the storyline. It is setting those things up.”
