Thomas cons Solomons into giving a share of his export business as well as getting the murder charge against Arthur withdrawn, freeing his brother As Derby day arrives he writes a letter to be opened in the event of his death - stating that Campbell has forced him to kill Field Marshal Russell, so that the culprits appear to be the IRA, undermining Home Rule. With his gypsy allies he plans to take over Sabini's race track licences, explaining that he will be creating a diversion to distract the police. At Epsom he bids a cryptic goodbye to May though somewhat incongruously Grace arrives, pregnant by and claiming to love him. Helped by his secretary, ex-prostitute Lizzie, Thomas kills Russell whilst the Blinders destroy Sabini's gaming licences in the knowledge that, thanks to May, they will revert to Shelby. Polly gets her revenge on Campbell but Thomas is abducted by members of the Ulster Voluntary Force on Campbell's orders and taken away to be shot.
