'Peaky Blinders' Season 6: After Aberama Gold's death, will Polly Gray be heartbroken or just move on?

It looks like Polly Gray (Helen McCrory) and Aberama Gold's (Aidan Gillen) relationship ended in 'Peaky Blinders' as soon as it started. The two exchanged rings after a dreamy proposal by Gold at the ballet party. However, as the sixth episode marked the end of the fifth season, the tables were suddenly turned and the ending marked too many major deaths.

Among them was Aberama Gold who was torturously stabbed to death by an unknown assailant during the assassination ambush. Turning over a new lead, Polly had just handed over her resignation to Thomas as she wanted to start afresh and lead a peaceful life with her son Michael (Finn Cole) and his wife Gina Gray (Anya Taylor-Joy). But, now with the sudden death of Aberama Gold, will she be in ruins?

Knowing Polly Gray, it is quite clear that she would not be saddened by death or doom. However, since she had just exchanged rings over a romantic proposal with him, she could be frantic over the mess and might cut ties with Tommy and Arthur (Paul Anderson). There is also a strong chance that Polly might go against the Shelby family and betray them along with her son to overthrow Tommy for Michael as his successor.

Reflecting on that thought, one user posted on Twitter: "Now that they killed Aberama, Polly will 100% side with Michael and OH MY GOD there will be a Gray vs Shelby on s6 please wake me up from this nightmare." Another user tweeted, "Steven Knight really likes hurting POLLY GRAY. THE NERVE," and one tweet read, "PLOT TWIST.....it’s Polly Gray...she chose Michael over Tommy hence she resigned and don’t think she ever wanted to marry Aberama Gold."

"I just wanted Aberama Gold to avenge his son and for Polly Gray to be happy but apparently not," one user posted, and another wrote: "But what if it’s a woman... Polly Gray... chosen her son over Tommy and never wanted to marry Aberama...#BigTwist #PeakyBlinders." As the new season rolls out, it will be interesting to see the changing dynamics of Polly's relationship with Tommy. Viewers will also have to wait and watch if the shoes of Gold are filled by a new man in Polly's life!
