Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) was horrified when his plot to take down Oswald Mosley (Sam Clafin) backfired. Peaky Blinders fans were certain Michael Gray (Finn Cole) and Gina Gray (Anya Taylor Joy) were to blame but could Aunt Polly’s (Helen McCrory) son have betrayed his wife by working with Tommy after all?
Tommy organised the politician’s assignation but was betrayed and some of his close friends were caught in the crossfire.
Earlier in the BBC series, Michael and Gina had been cast aside by the Shelbys making them likely suspects as traitors.
However, one Peaky Blinders fan has theorised Michael has in fact been working with Tommy to take down Oswald.
Reddit user DEADPOOL443 said: “Michael isn’t a traitor but is working with Tommy to take down Mosley.

“Gina knew Mosley’s name before being told and couldn’t take her eyes off him while he was making the speech at the wedding, she’s a spy for Mosley.”
Someone else agreed: “I love this theory. I could also see this as part of Tommy’s plan to expand into America.
“By infiltrating the drug trade and then taking it for the Shelbys. Playing the long game.”
A third wrote: “I’m always curious about a new girl when she shows up.
“I even thought Linda would be a spy and will make a big plot twist. So of course I don’t trust Gina.
“Especially because she’s so cold and arrogant. How could Michael [have] even fallen for her.”
Another shared: “Not sure about Michael’s deal but Gina is surely up to something bad.”
Could Michael have suspected his wife was a traitor and revealed all to Tommy?

Family is everything to Tommy and if Michael showed his loyalty by betraying his wife, the Shelby leader could have trusted him with his assignation plot.
Meanwhile, Polly actress Helen has teased her character won’t be able to let her son go if forced to choose between him and Tommy.
Speaking about Michael’s late addition to the family, Helen recalled: “When Michael joins up with his true family, he’s drawn to the dark side of the Shelbys and I’ve brought him to that life.
“He was living in a lovely place with little apple trees in the garden, where he could play football.
“Then I introduce him to a mob of gun-slinging, coke-snorting maniacs – this is my family!
“So there is a dichotomy, where Polly wants him close, but she’s worried for Michael as he becomes something very different.”
“She wants to save her son from the pain she experienced herself, which is what every parent wants,” she continued.
Peaky Blinders season 1-5 are available to stream on Netflix now.
