Alright folks, it's time to watch Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 2 online and decode the words of children's nightmares. But now that the new season is here, we've got spoilers to talk about from last week!  The good news, though, is that you'll be able to stream Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 2 from BBC iPlayer no matter where you are.

Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 2 start time, channel

Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 2 date: Today (Sunday, March 6) at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. GMT
Schedule: New episodes of Peaky Blinders season 6 arrive on Sundays at the above time.
Where to stream: BBC iPlayer (free)
How to watch from anywhere: Use ExpressVPN (100% risk-free)

So, let's kick right off with what we saw last week. Tommy (Cillian Murphy) survived his attempted suicide because his gun was empty, as Arthur (Paul Anderson) had removed all the bullets. 

Then, we got our next reveal, as to how Polly Gray (played by Helen McCrory, who passed away from cancer during the pandemic) was written off the show. Tommy picked up a phone call from an Irishwoman, who told him that not only is she a part of the group that saved Sir Oswald Mosley (which she said was performed by soldiers of the Irish Republican Army), but her organization also restructured his. 

Specifically, they removed the 'crutch' that Tommy's lent on, and blamed him, saying "the deaths of your people are your own responsibility because you consistently fail to understand your own limitations." And so when Tommy was visibly emotionally gutted while opening bodybags delivered to his house, we knew that one had to be Aunt Polly. This doesn't quite answer the Black Cat question, so who knows what's going on there with the betrayal of Tommy Shelby.

Then, the series jumped to Dec. 5, 1933, where we've got a sober Tommy (who is still ready to threaten violence) dealing with the opium trade. Then, Tommy's betrayed Michael (and gotten him sent to prison), and Michael's wife Gina is plenty angry. It all ended, though, with word that young Ruby's speaking in Gypsy phrases in her sleep. 

And that phrase, "Tikna Mora O Beng?" Ruby's talking about a devil, which sends Tommy home to Birmingham. (Of course, jump ahead to our Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 5 preview if you're caught up)

When does Peaky Blinders season 6 come out?

The BBC airs Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 2 on March 6, while the Peaky Blinders season 6 Netflix release is not confirmed (but we have good ideas).

Thankfully, you don't need Netflix for this. Yes, while Netflix may be the place to watch Peaky Blinders in America, it's not going to have Peaky Blinders season 6 as early as the BBC. The new season has to end on BBC before it goes to Netflix, so do not expect it prior to the 4th of April. 

Of course, those in the U.S. who want to watch it live with our friends in the U.K. will need a VPN service such as ExpressVPN to log in to the BBC iPlayer.

As for what is scheduled to debut in America, we've got all the details on how to watch Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty online. Also check out why our streaming editor says he'd cancel Netflix, Disney Plus and Hulu this month.

Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 2 trailer

The Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 2 trailer teases the return of Alfie (Tom Hardy), while showing that all of the aforementioned "organization changes" are not being taken happily. Tommy, soaked in red light at the end of the clip, is still under metaphorical threat of death.
