In recent weeks, the fourth season of Peaky Blinders has left viewers at home on the edge of their seats with its killer final scenes.
But the plot twist of episode three left fans reeling with full-on horror as Aunt Polly appeared to betray Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy).
Polly made vendetta-driven mobster Luca Changretta (Adrien Brody) a deal in the explosive finale, offering up Tommy's life in exchange for the safety of the rest of the family.

In heart-racing scenes, Polly met up with Luca at the bar and promised to sacrifice Tommy in exchange for the lives of Michael, Arthur and Finn.
She drawled: 'Arthur tries... Tommy's different. You take Tommy - spare the rest.'
Luca replied smiling: 'You know, my mother used to say this about you: She said: "You know, that Polly, that child never lets go of a grievance.'?

The don was told that the mother of the young boy Arthur killed in the boxing ring in series two is willing to help him kill Tommy.??
During the exchange, it also emerged that the Shelbys and the Changrettas have a shared history - as Polly's mother knew Luca's mother, who Tommy wanted dead.?
She was spared by John and Arthur when they were younger, but Luca pointed out that Tommy's 'ruthlessness was justified' as his mother gave him key knowledge on the Shelby family.

Polly's betrayal could be planning to set Luca up, especially as she was integral in?getting the don and his mobsters onto Aberama Gold's (Aidan Gillen) radar.
However, a subtle closing line 'I don't dance anymore' / 'That's a shame...because you're dancing with me') hinted that Luca might know what she was up to.
Peaky Blinders continues next Wednesday (December 6) at 9pm on BBC Two.
