Tommy whispers something to Duke in season finale

After recovering from the intense season finale of Peaky Blinders on Sunday (3 April), viewers are all asking the same question- what did Tommy whisper to Duke?

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

During one of the final scenes of the episode, Tommy has gathered his family for a dinner in the forest as a final goodbye before he ‘goes away’.

At one point, he approaches his newly discovered son, Duke, and bends down to whisper something in his ear.

Now viewers are going crazy trying to understand what he could be saying.

Some took to Reddit to share their theories, with one person writing: “The first couple of words was “I want you..” and then it was inaudible. Maybe he said I want you to take over the business, but he could have said anything tbf”.

Another replied: “Yeah the way he gave him the lead in killing Billy and testing Finn definitely alluded to the fact that Tommy saw Duke as his heir to lead the family / carry on the legacy. So it was probably orders / words of advice to lead the family.”

Others pointed out that in that scene, Duke now had the Peaky Blinders haircut marking his place in the family.

While some went crazy trying to figure out what was said, others noticed the rather cold look on Charlie Shelby’s face when he saw his father whisper something to Duke.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “That shot of Charles’ face when Tommy Whispers to Duke sets up so much for the movie! It’s going to be superb! #PeakyBlinders”.

Another said: “Little Charlie Shelby throwing an evil stare across the table as his father Tommy whispers into the ear of his step brother Duke Shelby. A sibling rivalry spin off set a few years in the future anyone??? Perhaps even with Finn Shelby as the new antagonist!!? #PeakyBlinders

Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight has previously confirmed that Tommy Shelby will feature in the upcoming film in some way, but not many other cast members have been confirmed.

We may have a while to wait to find out as production on the film is expected to begin at the beginning of 2023, so it is likely the film won’t arrive in cinemas until at least the end of 2024.
