Fast-forward two years and the Blinders’ business in Birmingham is a booming success. Two characters posing as mothers push their prams rigged with explosives up to The Garrison Pub, which goes up in dust. Meanwhile, the Shelby family are at Freddie's funeral, who has succumbed to an illness sometime before the beginning of the series.
In an effort to find out who blew up his pub, Thomas heads over to the Black Lion. There, he’s taken into a back room and threatened by an IRA woman named Irene O’Donnell and another man into a proposition for him to murder another Irishman.
While the boys are on their way south to London, Polly meanwhile visits a medium seeking news of the children who were taken from her by the Parish in infancy, although Esme warns her that the woman is a charlatan who simply tells people what they already believe.
In London, Thomas, Arthur and John go to a jazz club run by Darby Sabini, who controls half of the southern race courses, where they are anything but welcome. Their raid gains the attention of the other faction in London, the Jews, who invite him to a sit down. However, Thomas is set upon by Sabini and his thugs, who slice the inside of Thomas’s mouth with the sharp end of a razor, while his sister Ada is also accosted. Thomas is only saved by the reappearance of Chester Campbell.
