There are mentions to how the shelby father abandoned his kids ten years earlier. it is shown that they suffered from it, the father returns in this episode. Later the father abandoned again his oldest son (now an 30 yo adult who chose to believe in him). I guess that counts as such

YES. Horse servitude is a common theme throughout the series. Racing, riding, and carriage/“working” horses in the background are a common sight. Many scenes where the horses are made to walk through chaotic sets, showing clear signs of distress.

Spoiler!!! Do not go on if you don’t want it spoiled. There is a scene season 2 ep 6 where Tommy is to dig his own grave. I would have watched it had I known it doesn’t get to completion, but because it seemed like he was going to be forced to burry himself alive, it gave me great anxiety. Not to worry tho, watch it as it is a satisfying scene.

Slight spoilers in here! The Peaky Blinders often cuts eyes out with razor blades, the first time this happens is in Season 1 Episode 2. However, those scenes are shown but not into gruesome detail.

The only black character has dreads, missing teeth, and is a fraudulent preacher in league with the gangs, if that counts.

And there is PLENTY of shitty tropes about romani people as criminal gangs and untrustworthy.

Probably the most out of any episode so far. There's also an orgy scene.

Tommy claims his partner as “his property” verbally to her in the later seasons and there are scenes with prostitution in them throughout the series depicting men treating the sex workers unfairly and harsh

tw suicide

A character is mocked extensively for being so grief-stricken that they attempt suicide. I figure that qualifies.

It’s a series and not yet done. In general the seasons turn out good in the end.

A car explodes as a result of a bomb being planted in it, killing two (one child) and injuring 2 other children. Not sure if that counts as a crash but oh well

One of the bloodier episodes of the show as several scenes take place in a kitchen where animals are being butchered. A violent scene takes place here and there is blood literally everywhere.

There is a discussion about a man who drowned in a river off-screen before the show's events, and in season 5 a man is drowned in paint.
