Warning: this article contains spoilers for season six of Line Of Duty.
Updated on 2 May: If you’ve been tuning in to the latest season of Line Of Duty, you’ll know the last seven weeks have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride.
But that’s part of the fun, right? Sure, most of the fan theories we’ve pondered over the last couple of weeks didn’t turn out to be true (sigh), but being able to pore over the tiniest of details and try to predict what might happen next is what makes watching this series so great.
With this in mind, what makes the series equally so great is all the memes and hilarious tweets shared by fans of the show before, during and after every episode. Particularly after the big season finale.
Here are just a few of our favourites…
Reactions to the finale were mixed, to say the least
Some thought not much happened
Others, though, were here for the burns
And many felt it was too short an episode
Everyone agreed that Chloe was the MVP
It made sense that Buckells was caught out by his sloppy spelling
And everyone was incredibly envious of Jo Davidson
But one thing we were all happy about...
As reported on 29 April: Of course, the memes were flooding in long before the finale; they’ve actually been a staple of season six since the very beginning.
With this in mind, we’ve put together a selection of our favourite memes to date, on everything from Jo Davidson’s endless ‘no comments’ to our love-hate relationship with Patricia Carmichael.
When we spent the entire first episode trying to catch up
… and started coming up with our own theories
Suddenly, everyone was a suspect
We got to know Ryan, perhaps the slimiest villain in Line Of Duty history...
... and Steve got friendly with Steph Corbett
Then there was the whole thing with Jo’s secret relative
As Jo found herself at the mercy of Ryan’s dodgy behaviour
Cue the return of Anna Maxwell Martin as the formidable Patricia Carmichael...
… who just might live a double life...
… just in time for all chaos to break lose
The penultimate episode was full of action-packed moments, from a car chase...
... to *that* interview scene
When Jo says no comment, she means NO comment – nada...
... except for the time she sassed Patricia Carmichael with her knowledge of the law
And of course, Ted came out with a line of his own
Elsewhere, Steve’s facing some of his own problems
Of course, we can’t forget Marcus Thurwell’s (lack of) presence
And those shifty prison guards who look set to cause Jo some problems
As we wait for next week’s episode, the theories about H’s true identity are hotting up
With only one episode left, there are still plenty of questions left to answer
But whatever happens, it’s been another brilliant season
