But he miraculously survived the assassination attempt and has been laying low in Margate ever since.
Tommy Shelby – Cillian Murphy – sought him out to buy some of his men to help kill fascist politician Oswald Moseley.
Coming face to face with his old business partner, Alfie asked: “How soon did you know I was not dead?”
He replied: “You wrote me a letter Alfie.”
“I was on a lot of drugs,” said the reclusive figure.

Revealing what happened after the gun was fired, Alfie said: “I was lying out there when the tide came in woke me up. I was looking around thinking f**k, if this is hell it looks a lot like Margate.”
The pair then negotiate a price for Alfie’s men to join the Blinders in fascism as they go after Moseley, settling on a fee of £25,000.
While Alfie survived his shootout with Tommy, he looked in a bad way; a huge scar covering a large part of his face.
Blinders viewers have been speculating about the shocking return for some time – despite Alfie’s shooting.

After Tommy confronted him on the beach for betraying him, Alfie revealed he was dying of skin cancer and didn’t have long left.
He then asked Tommy to shoot him and end his misery but Tommy was reluctant.
