'Peaky Blinders' Season 5: Gina Gray's eye-lock with Oswald Mosley raises suspicion of her betrayal of the Shelbys
One scene from the fourth episode of 'Peaky Blinders' has particularly stuck with the viewers. Gina Gray (Anya Taylor-Joy) shares a mysterious glance with Mosley at the ballet party.
The fourth episode of 'Peaky Blinders' in season five was the harbinger of a death spell. Arthur Shelby (Paul Anderson) and his wife Linda (Kate Phillips) had a deadly face-off and blood was spilled. If Linda's death was not enough of a shocker, there is quite a lot of conspiracy brewing in the air. It is no secret that British politician Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) is trying to get ahead of Thomas Shelby (Cillian Murphy) despite entering into a business partnership with him. But, what really are his plans?
Amidst all the chaos, one scene has particularly stuck with the viewers. Gina Gray (Anya Taylor-Joy) shares a mysterious glance with Mosley at the ballet party. Why does Michael's (Finn Cole) wife look at the politician and what is the hidden connection between the two? The scene barely lasts for a few seconds but has managed to raise strong suspicions of an impending betrayal.
Spelling out new speculations about where the series is heading towards, several fans took to Twitter to pen down the theory. "What was that look between Gina and Mosley? I’m suspicious!" one fan wrote, while another posted, "Gina and Oswald are definitely working together somehow.” Another Twitter user added: “Swear to God if Gina & Mosley are working together, I’ll kill Michael for bringing her around.”
"Oswald and Gina thinking they can outwit Tommy f**kin Shelby?? #PeakyBlinders," another user made an observation on the micro-blogging platform. If the tweets weren't enough, several speculations on Reddit mention how Gina Gray could be the Black Cat! "I mean it's pretty much confirmed from this episode that it's Gina," a fan wrote.
Elucidating the reason behind his observation, he added, "That's why Michael held onto stocks and got fucked by the market crash. So many pieces finally come together. I'd bet a good amount of money that it's Gina and her affiliation to Mosely, there's a reason they are keeping Michael x Gina meeting and marrying in some sort of recap as a secret currently. Mosely is an enemy, and that look Gina and him gave to each other at the ballet made it all the more obvious. Or Tommy is going to end up where he wants, like come on, it's so damn obvious that Gina is the black cat, I'm surprised I haven't seen more spoiler warning posts regarding Gina as the black cat."
Whether or not Gina turns out to be the Black Cat, there is definitely more to her character than meets the eye. Another fan wrote: "In S5E04 in the scene where Gina is talking to Micheal at the party, she says, 'Tommy Shelby will be gone, and it will be Michael Gray arranging the ballet.' Could this be proof that Gina is the one after the throne for Michael or is it just their plans of getting away from the family?"
"In the ballet scene, the camera focuses on Gina looking at Tommy, so this could also be hinting, she is new to the family and only has loyalty to Michael, who wants to get away himself, but with the fact that she has a lust for money and power so it is logical for it to be her."
It is yet to be seen what Mosley is up to and it will affect the Shelbys. The fifth episode of 'Peaky Blinders' rolls out on Sunday, September 15. You have to wait till then to find out how true the fan theories turn out to be.
