The last ever episode of Peaky Blinders aired on Sunday night after six series on the air.
The final scene in the hotly anticipated episode caught the attention of fans because it references the first episode of the Brummie drama.
Watch the clip below:
Viewers first met Tommy riding a black horse through the muddy streets of Birmingham in 1919. In a very clear reference to the first episode, which aired in September 2013, fans bid adieu to the gangster and his cropped 'do as he rides away on a white horse.
Fans have shared their reactions to the reference in the finale and what it could mean.
"#PeakyBlinders tommy entering riding a black horse at the beginning and leaving riding a white horse at the end oh i cant breathe," one fan said on Twitter.
One viewer shared pictures from the first episode and the series finale and wrote: "It all ended as it started, but now tommy is on a white horse... #PeakyBlinders".
"From on a black horse to a white horse. What a journey! #PeakyBlinders," another fan declared.
While someone else gave their hot take on what the horse references could mean for Tommy's character. "Started on a black horse foreshadowing tommy in season 1 finished on a white horse foreshadowing the new tommy shelby #PeakyBlinders".
And another excited fan praised series creator Steven Knight, writing: "BACK WHERE IT ALL BEGAN ON A HORSE STEVEN KNIGHT I F***ING LOVE YOU THE ENDING WAS PERFECTION #PeakyBlinders."
Fans showered the final scene with praise on social media, with one Twitter user writing: "Tommy riding off on a white horse was the most perfect ending #PeakyBlinders."
While someone else helmed the last episode "an end of an era" and said: "He rode in on a black horse leaves on a white horse, the finale was nothing more [than] a masterpiece acting brilliant, twist was perfect."
