A duel resulted in Alfie being shot in the face, killing him off during the last few moments of the fourth season.
However, season five surprised fans with Alfie’s return, shocking viewers and Tommy alike.
Alive and living in Margate, Alfie says to Tommy: “How soon did you realise I was not dead?”
Tommy replied: “You wrote me a letter, Alfie.”
Alfie responds: “Did I? They gave me a lot of drugs at first. I was laying out there, the tide came in and woke me up.
“I remember looking around and thinking, if this is hell, it looks a lot like Margate.”
