Peaky Blinders will return to Netflix and the BBC for another series in the near future. Viewers were heartbroken when Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) lost the love of his life after she was shot. There are some fans who are convinced that Grace (Annabelle Wallis) is still alive and undercover, as she has close connections to the crown.
Is the crown responsible for ‘faking’ Grace Shelby’s death?
Right up until the season five finale, Tommy Shelby has been mourning the death of his beloved wife Grace.
She was tragically killed by a bullet that was meant for her troublemaking husband, and he has remained grief-stricken ever since.
Even long after she was gone, Tommy would have visions of his wife as she beckoned him to join her in the afterlife.
Season five ended with a deranged Tommy holding a gun up to his head, seemingly about to pull the trigger.
There has been a lot of speculation over whether Grace is actually dead, or whether she will make a surprise return.
Fans have taken to Reddit to discuss the possibility of a large-scale coverup, in which Grace’s ‘death’ was staged.
One viewer said: “If it were to be true (highly unlikely) I think she would have nothing to do with faking her own death, but maybe something being held over her by the crown, like is being held over Tommy (all his sins).
“She did kill two IRA men. Perhaps Churchill wanted her death to be ‘faked’ so he could use Tommy in the way he is (less likely to have happened if Grace were alive) and is using her own sins against her to keep her in hiding.
“There is no way otherwise she would give up Charles and Tommy like you say unless something was being held over her, like their lives or something.
“I don’t think it would be soap opera-ish though, it would be more of part of all the corrupt strategies that we know happen.”
Churchill is likely to make many appearances in the upcoming season due to the era in which it is set.
Many viewers have already suggested there is a strong link between the figurehead and the undercover officer.
Another fan said: “I loved Grace I honestly don’t think she will ever come back. However, here’s my theory- Winston Churchill and his agents faked her death to keep control of Tommy.
“They couldn’t let her remain alive and by his side and needed to keep Tommy emotionally isolated and unavailable.
“This would open him up to the Russians etc. She survived the shooting and was shipped off and kept somewhere. She was sent away under threat that if she ever returned they would kill her son.”
There is a chance someone could be holding something over Grace, which is why she has been forced to stay out of sight.
The plot twist has been discussed on plenty of other forums, with one fan reiterating the fact the crown could have faked her death.
One fan said on the Peaky Blinders Facebook group: “I also don’t think Changretta would have had anything to do with Churchill.
“Remember the event they were at was for high ranking societal people, many connected to the crown were likely there.
“It would be more like a failed Italian assassination on Tommy striking Grace, and more likely the crown faked her death because (1) Churchill knew about her from Campbell, and that Tommy may never do the deeds for the crown if Grace were ‘alive’.
“And/or (2) her family were highly connected to the crown too, and recall her uncle telling Tommy at the wedding he was still highly concerned about giving a blessing due to Tommy’s history.”
They pointed out how no one has ever visited Grace’s grave and felt this was no coincidence.
They added: “I would say this is likely because it was her family who handled her arrangements, not Tommy – he wouldn’t know what was done/not done with her body/burial necessarily.”
Fans will have to wait until season six airs to find out if Grace really is still alive and undercover.
Peaky Blinders seasons 1-5 are on Netflix now.
