Peaky Blinders fans shocked as Tom Hardy makes surprise return in series finale

Back from the dead!

Peaky Blinders fans were amazed during the series five finale last night (22.9.19) when a fan favourite seemingly came back from the dead.

Jewish gangster Alfie Solomons (played by Tom Hardy) was found by Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) alive and well, even though the Brummie gang leader had shot him in the face at the end of series four.

Alfie was presumed dead, but miraculously he survived.

Found by Tommy living in a plush coastal apartment in Margate, Alfie explained to Tommy that he now passed the days shooting at ships and seagulls from his window.

But Tommy had other things on his mind: he wanted Alfie's help in assassinating fascist leader, Oswald Mosley, in order to instigate a riot.

The pair negotiated a £25,000 fee to do the deed in a tense scene.

Alfie, with his face scarred and without the use of his left eye, promptly c-bombed as he agreed to sort out some men to carry out Tommy's request.

Fans then proceeded to break the internet with their responses to Alfie coming back from the dead.

Alfie is alive. All hail Tom Hardy.
