Did You Spot This Essential 'Line Of Duty' Detail On Fleming's Computer?

The second episode of Season 6 of Line Of Duty was aired last night on BBC, and it was clear by the end of it that LOD was properly back. Unlike the slow-burning series premiere, this episode packed so many Ted Hastings haymakers, it's hard to know where to begin. From his iconic meeting with his superiors where he dropped the 'BENT COPPERS' catchphrase like a Randy 'Macho Man' Savage elbow drop from the top rope to his grilling of a hapless of DCI Davidson, this episode delivered punch after punch after punch.

Last night wasn't just about fan service, however. There is a case to crack. The role of DI Kate Fleming continues to intrigue. As the investigation into the murder of journalist Gail Vella ramps up, it's clear Kate is stuck in a no-man's land, given her past work with AC-12 and her current position under Davidson. 'I'm damned if I do, damned if I don't,' is her familiar retort. Kate's ultimate allegiance will play a massive role in determining the outcome of this season. When Kate gave Davidson wind of the imminent AC-12 investigation into their activities in Episode 1, it seemed that like Fleming had fully moved on from being an ally of Hastings, Arnott and the gang at AC-12. However there is a cohort of LOD fans online who believe that Fleming is actually working undercover for the AC-12.

One blink-and-you-missed-it moment spotted by Twitter folk during last night's episode would certainly make you think twice about Kate's allegiances.

There on Kate's computer screen is a file on PC Ryan Pilkington, a copper who is proven to be bent by the end of the episode. Kate had spent the episode trying to recall Ryan's face and seems to sense there's something amiss with him.

Ryan's background in crime goes back to Season 1, of course, when he worked for Tommy Hunter. Buckells - ostensibly now his boss - opted not to take action against his criminal activity.

By the end of the episode, there was plenty of evidence to prove that both Davidson and Ryan are bent coppers.  All of the strands are coming together for an epic blow-up this season. How Kate positions herself amongst this crowd will prove very interesting indeed.
