Okay folks, it's time to watch Peaky Blinders season 6 episode 5 online — and we bet you can't wait. After last week's dramatics, we're sure everyone is keen to see what Tommy Shelby will do now that he's been given the worst news possible after his daughter Ruby's passing last week.

So, not only has tuberculosis taken his daughter Ruby, but blood tests in last week's episode reveal that there are tuberculoma at the base of Tommy's skull. This explains a whole lot of the "unreliable narrator" tropes, such as his hallucinations and seizures. And it's inoperable. 

And then there's the whole reveal that he only has up to 18 months left to live. Of course, Tommy's going to try to hide this news from everyone, as he lied to Lizzie, saying his appointment with Dr. Holford was about a bill he wasn't expecting. Or maybe that was just Tommy's way of smudging the truth: you could say the bill that he has to pay is for his own life. 

The other big item on the agenda is that Tommy (just like us) figured out that Mosley and Gina (Anya Taylor-Joy) have been secretly enjoying each other's company. After threatening to tell her uncle, Tommy's got Gina to agree to be the mole he needs, acting as his eyes and ears at the meeting in Berlin with the German high command.

Also, this is the penultimate episode of the season, so time's not just ticking away for Tommy, but for this final season of Peaky Blinders. A movie will follow.

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, which is why the current season isn't arriving on Netflix until June.

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 (opens in new tab) to log in to the BBC iPlayer.
