Contrary to the grim prognosis that loomed over Tommy Shelby throughout the season, the finale takes a surprising turn. Initially diagnosed with tuberculoma and given a death sentence, Tommy discovers that his illness was fabricated. His doctor revealed to be a follower of fascist leader Oswald Mosley, had orchestrated the false diagnosis in an attempt to drive Tommy to suicide. This revelation comes to Tommy through an unexpected source – a vision of his deceased daughter, Ruby.

The supernatural element, which has been a recurring theme in the series, is finally confirmed as real. Ruby’s apparition leads Tommy to crucial information that exposes the plot against him. This twist not only saves Tommy’s life but also reaffirms his faith in his own methods and perceived immortality.

Despite the efforts of his enemies, Tommy emerges alive, having outsmarted them once again. He steps away from his criminal empire, leaving it in the hands of his son Duke, and brother Arthur. The final shot of Tommy riding away on horseback symbolizes his newfound freedom, albeit with the lingering question of whether he can truly escape his past.

While Tommy’s immediate fate is resolved, the finale plants seeds for future conflicts. The Shelby family, though seemingly united at Tommy’s final supper, faces potential internal strife. Finn Shelby’s banishment from the family and his vow of revenge against Duke sets the stage for a dramatic showdown.

Additionally, the contrasting characters of Duke and Charlie, Tommy’s sons, hint at a possible struggle for their father’s legacy. Duke is positioned as Tommy’s true heir in the shadier aspects of the family business, while Charlie represents the legitimate side.
