Since the broadcast of the final season of season 5 of Peaky blinders, fans are still wondering who could have betrayed Tommy Shelby. And for good reason, the identity of the “black cat” having dashed his hopes of getting rid of Oswald Mosley has still not been revealed. And while all suspicion is on the couple formed by Michael and Gina Gray, could it be that another person just as close to the Shelby clan is responsible? In any case, what this amazing fan theory relayed by the site reveals Esquire. Indeed, it may well be that the culprit is none other than Esme Shelby (Aimee-Ffion Edwards), the former wife of John Shelby, the brother of Thomas who died at the start of season 4.
And for good reason, as Aberama Gold pointed out to Tommy, only Johnny Dogs was aware of the whereabouts of the father and his son when the Billy Boys attacked them. However, if Johnny Dogs seems far too loyal to the Shelby clan leader to betray the latter, Esme by its origins gypsies and its old affiliation with the clan Lee (which does not carry besides the clan Gold in its heart) could very well have discovered this information. Besides the young woman also knew the location of Tommy’s mansion, handy for positioning the mines in his field. A rather plausible theory especially when you know how much the young woman hated Tommy Shelby whom she had also cursed shortly after the death of her husband John Shelby. So, truth or fabrication? Only the next coming episodes can tell us! Also discover this crazy theory about the final season of Peaky blinders that could change everything.
