Peaky Blinders made a welcome return to our screens recently, with the sixth and final series of the BBC drama beginning in February.
The new series has got off to an eventful start, with tensions among the Shelby family reaching new heights.
Fans of the hit show have been taking to social media to give their predictions on what’s to come, and the third installment, which aired on 6 March, has really got viewers talking.
The final moments of the highly anticipated episode showed Tommy Shelby’s (Cillian Murphy) daughter Ruby (Orla McDonagh) experiencing an ominous premonition involving “a man with green eyes,” and the Romani words, “Tickna mora o’beng.”

Later, Ruby tells Lizzie (Natasha O’Keefe) more about her vision, adding: “It’s the grey man. He says he’s coming for me and he’s coming for daddy as well.”
Steven Knight, creator of Peaky Blinders, has revealed Ruby’s vision is “not a good thing”, and confirmed that she is talking about the ‘devil’.
Fans have been attempting to work out who the man could be in Ruby’s vision ever since. Here we take a look through some of the suspects…
It may seem unlikely, but could Ruby actually be envisioning her own father?
A Twitter user penned: “The grey man sounds like tommy.”
Tommy doesn’t necessarily match the description of the mystery figure, with his blue eyes and pale complexion, but some believe it could potentially still be a possibility.
Could she be having a dream which has interpreted the mood of her childhood, which was filled with violence?
Or, could Ruby be connected to her father, and is therefore envisioning the grey soldier that Tommy wrestles in his office?
Tommy also tells Jack Nelson (James Frecheville) that the first person he ever killed was a “Prussian boy with green eyes”, and Ruby could have discovered this information somehow.
Captain Swing (Charlene McKenna) also doesn’t match the physical description of the mystery man, as she is a woman and doesn’t have green eyes – but is Ruby’s vision entirely accurate?
While we’re not sure Captain Swing would necessarily stoop to child endangerment, she does have a motive, should she discover that Tommy is playing her for a fool.
Series six newcomer Jack Nelson (James Frecheville) is a powerful Irish-American businessman, who is Gina Gray’s (Anna Taylor-Joy) uncle.
Viewers recently watched as Tommy attempted to do business with Jack and Michael Gray (Finn Cole), but their talks didn’t end well.
Jack could loosely match Ruby’s description, partly thanks to his grey suit, and he definitely isn’t to be underestimated.
Michael Gray could potentially be the “grey man”, and maybe Ruby simply cannot recall the name of her first cousin once removed.
She hasn’t seen him for four years, so it’s doubtful she remembers much about Michael at all.
The “green eyes” could also be symbolic, with Michael being envious of Tommy – who has previously vowed to seduce Michael’s wife Gina.
Sir Oswald Mosley
Sir Oswald Mosley ticks every box, and has even been dubbed the Devil by Tommy previously.
Ruby’s haunting drawings could as be interpreted as a villain sporting a moustache.
While Oswald currently thinks he is on the same side as Tommy, but doesn’t know that he is planning to infiltrate his political party and destabilise from within.
Could Sir Oswald Mosley be the “grey man” in Ruby’s vision?
