Tom Hardy – Is He a Friend or a Foe?

Adrien Brody and Tom Hardy meet Eye-to-Eye

Fri, December 15th, 2017

So far, Season 4 has been one of the most intense Peaky Blinders seasons. Why? Well, the series started their first episode with the death of one of the main characters and one of the three much-loved brothers, John. Now, with one episode left, could it be Alfie (Tom Hardy) that betrays Tommy? 


Could other Peaky Blinders members leave the show

John is gone and at some points, we thought that the same fate might be possible for Michael and Arthur. Luca Changretti (Adrien Brody) had his pistol on Michael’s head and we all thought that it was the end for Michale, but as it seemed, Polly struck a deal with Luca, and he wanted to show her what would happen if she doesn’t honour the deal. As it turned out, Polly was working with Tommy (Cillian Murphy) from the beginning, which was a large relief for fans because it meant that the family still stands their ground united.


The meeting – Alfie Solomons and Luca Changretta

As it seems, Alfie is out to betray Tommy Shelby. The last scene shows Alfie following Tommy on the boxing match between ‘David and Goliath’. Prior to the boxing match, Luca Changretta had a meeting with Alfie where they discussed their wishes and possible cooperation. The scene was intense and might become legendary since it is bound to be one of the best scenes in Peaky Blinders Season 4 so far. The acting portrayed by Tom Hardy and Adrien Brody was astonishing with both humour, intensity, spike, and lunacy. Tom Hardy remained with his eyes closed during the first part of the scene, talking about supporting the ones who are blind whilst Luca Changretta and his companion looked at him like a madman. Maybe it is Luca Changretta who is blind since he is thinking that Alfie shall betray Tommy. We’ll soon find out.

The Intensity and Brilliance

One can only marvel at the sheer brilliance of the Peaky Blinders series and the crafting of characters. Of course, the right pick of actors contributed a lot to the success of the show. Tom Hardy’s portrayal of the mad and calculated Jewish kingpin has become one of the trademarks of the series. The two Italians talk in their mother language in between communication with Alfie, all the while thinking that Alfie can’t understand them. At some point, Luca’s main guy said to him: “They say this is how he is. We need him.”


After giving them the list and calling them “wops” and similar, Alfie says he’ll get them in but that they have to circumcise their men because Peaky Blinders shall check whether they are Jewish. Adrien Brody was in a state of shock with Tom Hardy smiling to their faces whilst demanding circumcision. In his own words: “I have a list of costs for an assassination of a dear friend.”


What is going to happen?

So what do you think? Did Alfie truly betray Tommy? It is possible that Thomas, as always, has a hidden plan and Alfie could be the bait. We are left to wait for one more week and after that, it will be one more year of waiting for all you Peaky Blinders fans. But, there are many new series that are about to air on UK TV Channels in December and January. We will be posting an article about upcoming shows pretty soon.
