    I was wondering about this. 3 of 6 this week.

    Yeah, that's a thing...

    I got quite excited when I spotted that 'definitely' was misspelt on the text from H. Sadly, it didn't seem to go anywhere...

    Also wondering if Kate's family might be another target, allowing her to go full on Rambo again.

    Still don’t think it’s going to be Hastings although he’s obviously got something to hide on his laptop - something to do with the dodgy Irish property dealings possibly

    Is the laptop not something to do with the woman he was in the hotel room?

    If she’s been sending him mucky pictures?

    I still think the scouse copper is clean.

    Did he not take over after DCI Gates?

    Could be fiddling money to get that 100k

    She was excellent in Rome and BBC's Prisoners' Wives a few years ago.

    Hargreaves was obviously a plant otherwise the last three episodes will be a bit shit.

    Loads pointing towards Ted but that is still too obvious, the laptop is something to do with his property or his mrs I think.

    Most likely is that H has nothing to do with the bent coppers name, I can’t remember anyone actually saying for definite that was the case, just AC12’s working hypothesis

    I’m still thinking that the lass in the gang is his undercover officer and the bloke in that image is him going to meet her. He got rid of the laptop as it had all the conversations between him and her and she’s not authorised to be undercover or something.

    Or it could be to do with the Irish property deal somehow.
  15. Well you learn something new every day!
  16. Must admit it blew my mind when I found out.

    A bit like when Top Cat turned into Boss Cat.

    How thick is Ted's missus though? A copper's wife for years and yet when Corbett came to her door posing as Arnott she leaves the door open by the chain before going inside. Maybe a long-shot but Corbett seemed adamant he didn't aim for Hargreaves when shooting - could someone else have shot him. Agree on the 'definately' spelling - there's a clue in there somewhere.

    I thought that might be a clue too
  19. Biometrics is going to play a part. When Hargreaves walked away before being shot he couldn't stop a pig in a passageway. Looked like he'd shat himself. There's going to be some CCTV footage from somewhere that everyone assumes is him then they'll prove that his gait was totally different. Probably.

    It's definitely been dumbed down this series where they keep on explaining basic regulations to each other. "Preservation of life" etc.
    Sick of hearing them say "OCG". Why did the one who skidded off the road say that the men with guns and balaclavas were OCG? Why did they take DNA from his hands and if they had, why did he look surprised when they discovered the oil traces?
    It's still canny but standards have slipped.

    That’ll just be a plot device for later in the series imo. One of them - probably Steve - will be on the wrong end of a gun and Kate will have to choose between preserving his life or arresting the bad guy.
