Summary Edit

The episode opens with the opening of the Grace Shelby Institute for Orphaned Children. After giving a short speech, Thomas goes into the hall where a portrait of Grace is stood up. Father Hughes comes by joking about his lost invitation and tells Thomas that his office is only 2 doors away. He tells Thomas not to deviate from the original plan in the next 24 hours. As Father Hughes escorts the children out, Michael walks by and he cannot keep his eyes off Hughes as he invites Thomas in for tea.

Through the festivities, Thomas is distracted as he takes a photo with a few ladies and hands his son, Charles, off to a nanny. After the photo is taken, he finds that Charles in no longer in the room anymore and has been taken by someone and out of the building into a car.

Thomas is soon lead to a car with Father Hughes who tells him he has his child. Hughes tells Thomas to blow up the train himself and that there must be casualties. He also tells Thomas he's found out about the tunnel digging, and that all of the jewels including the Faberge Egg will be given to Hughes.

Thomas starts accusing everyone in his immediate family (Ada, John, Polly, Arthur) that someone leaked the information out as they were the only ones he told about the Faberge Egg. Thomas in the end tells Polly it must be Reuben Oliver, her new lover, as she must've leaked it when she was drunk. Polly in her anger takes a knife and tears her portrait painting to shreds.

Thomas then meets with Alfie asking for names of people who would buy a Faberge Egg. When Alfie gives him a list, Thomas's suspicions are confirmed as Alfie has excluded a name. Thomas had also asked for the same list from his jewelers. Thomas tells Alfie that Alfie's been working with the Oddfellows and Alfie says that he wanted to the gold and he knew that Charles would be taken and that he did not care. As Thomas tackles Alfie, Alfie's bodyguard comes to wrench him off but is shot by the sudden appearance of Michael.

Michael tells Thomas not to shoot Alfie as it would be bad for business. As the heated argument continue, Alfie tells Thomas to shoot him like an honorable man. Thomas tells Michael to get the inspector. As Michael leaves, Alfie confides in Thomas that he actually did not know about the taking of Charles.

Reuben Oliver comes to find Polly only to find a torn up painting and a gun at his head. When Polly asks why he didn't come sooner, Reuben says he wasn't sure if he was ready to enter that life but now he was. Polly tells him that the painting was wrong and that the woman there was too sure of herself and she wanted a life with Reuben.

Meanwhile, Arthur and John, with the help of the police, find the man that was missing from Alfie's list and demand the location of Charles.

Thomas goes over to Johnny Dogs' where the tunnel is being dug and goes in to help and speed up the process. Thomas is able to place an explosive and get into the underground stronghold where the jewels are kept and manages to steal two pouches worth before leaving.

Michael finds Father Hughes with Charles and points a gun to his head. However, due to hesitation, Hughes catches him off guard and knocks the gun out of his hand and starts punching him. Michael takes out a knife and slashes his eye and as he has Hughes pinned down, the two Peaky Blinders (who Michael told to stay in the car) come in to shoot Hughes. Michael stops them and says he has to do it himself. Michael plunges the knife into Hughes' neck and kills him. Michael brings Charles home where Polly sees the blood stains on his face.

Arthur is hesitating to set off the explosives on the train, but when John offers to do it for him, Arthur refuses and says that he will complete the task Thomas set him to do. Just as he is about to, Finn comes running behind the train to say that Charlie is safe. However it is too late, and the train blows into pieces. They then proceed to burn off any remaining pieces of evidence.

Thomas goes out to meet Tatiana and a jeweler and exchanges the stolen jewelry for money. He pays her back 5000 pounds for the sex upon Tatiana's request. As Thomas leaves, Tatiana shoots the jeweler dead.

Back at the mansion, Thomas starts handing out the cash promised to everyone at the beginning of the season. He is annoyed that he has dragged everyone into this mission and has told himself that no matter how legitimate the company becomes, the higher ranking people will never accept them because of who they are and where they're from. As he hands Michael his money, Polly steps in and says that she has a different view of what the company future could be. Linda tells Arthur they have a train to catch to the ferry to New York.

Thomas suddenly tells Arthur that he won't get far as the police have issued warrants for the arrests of Arthur, John, Michael and Polly. This was ordered by their enemies who also have ties with the police. Thomas tells them he has a plan and he has arranged something with people even more powerful than their enemies, but the whole room is still in disarray. Thomas tells Lizzie to take and put away the money for later distribution. The final scene cuts with Thomas watching the trucks taking away his family.
