“Spectacle over sense”: Popular Reviewer Justifies ‘Peaky Blinders’ Season 6 Finale to Be a “fair deal”

Peaky Blinders season 6 finale is almost a week old now. The finale left fans confused, to say the least. While there have been many debates and discussions about the quality of the episode as some feel the final twist was just lazy writing. A popular reviewer has finally made peace with the ending that we feel will give you solace as well.

Peaky Blinders season 6 finale was the best we could get

All those who have watched the final episode know that the news of Tommy’s illness being untrue was a huge twist that no one of us saw coming. And the beauty of it was the way it was conveyed through Ruby.

But many argue that the episode being a visual treat did now hold much on the narrative part. There was just too much going on and the writers had to sum it up in an hour-long episode. So there were some slacks; we get it.

So, to help out millions of fans throughout the world who were somewhat unsatisfied by the last episode, Rebecca Nicholson from The Guardian has provided a great solution. Just like us, Rebecca was taken aback by the “confusing last season.” 

To be honest, the last season did have a long of things going on on multiple fronts.

First, there was the IRA meeting with Tommy. Then Tommy was dealing with Alfie and helping him with his “opera.” And if this wasn’t enough Ruby was being visited by a green-eyed man who eventually took her with him.

So in the last few episodes, a lot of narrative branches were laid out that needed immediate trimming. And Steven Knight did a commendable job summing up a lot of points, while leaving just enough for the future movie.

But what Rebecca says about the final episode just makes sense. She asks fans to enjoy Peaky Blinders to its fullest; she stopped making sense of things. Instead, she enjoyed the ride while it lasted. And if you look at it from the point of view, the final episode was an amazing one.

“Let the spectacle carry me to the end,” writes Rebecca.
