Storyline

Thomas is approached by two IRA members anxious to buy the guns, though he is careful not to commit himself. Grace, who has overheard, follows the Irishmen and ends up shooting one in self-defence though the IRA suspect the Peaky Blinders. Next day Thomas takes Grace to Cheltenham races, where he warns Kimber that the Lees are out to rob him. Arthur brings a gang who relieve the Lees of the money stolen as a result of which Kimber hires the Blinders as his security. He also tries to have his way with Grace but Thomas saves her by ungallantly claiming that she has syphilis. Ada and Freddie are married and Polly gives them money to escape Thomas's anger and leave the country but Freddie stays, bringing the arms workers out on strike and returning Thomas's money. That night Thomas dreams about how Freddie saved him during the war. Written by don @ minifie-1
