It's fair to say that Line of Duty has turned viewers into armchair detectives as we all try to figure out what happened to Gail Vella. On Sunday's episode, something rather unexpected caught the attention of viewers and it all revolves around almond croissants.
Fans were shook after spotting the text messages sent by DCI Jo Davidson and DI Kate Fleming, with many viewers pausing to see if there were any juicy details or spoilers. We actually learned what Jo's favourite pastry is.
As seen in the texts, Kate says she's grabbing a coffee and does the polite thing by asking Jo if she'd like anything. Jo replied: "Cappuccino would be great!" with a thumbs-up emoji.
Going one step further, Kate asks: "Pastry?"
Jo - who seemed to be a slightly on the fence about indulging on more than a cappuccino - replied: "Go on then :P almond croissant if they've got it."
Even the most seasoned detectives need snacks.
"Thinking about Jo asking Kate for an almond croissant," on fan wrote on Twitter.
Another viewer added: "Get you a girl who texts you if you want a pastry on her way to work."
Some fans were caught off-guard by Jo's use of emojis. "Not Jo sending a ':P'" a Twitter user joked.
Line of Duty is known for packing lots of hints into each episode thanks to writer and creator Jed Mercurio and one Twitter user celebrated this attention to detail. "This is great stuff. Really annoys me in some things when you see someone texting and there's zero previous chat between the characters."
And that's not all - viewers also managed to identify the meme Kate sent to DI Steve Arnott.
A lot more unfolded during Sunday's episode apart from Jo's choice of pastry. Viewers were left shook as episode five concluded with a shooting but it's not clear who was shot. Some fans have speculated the victim might be PC Ryan Pilkington or DI Kate Fleming, who faced off in an intense shoot-out.
One fan took to Reddit after unearthing a clip from the season 6 we have all seen before but never knew its importance until now, which may give us some hints about who was shot and what has happened to Kate.
And now Adrian Dunbar has revealed during an interview on Monday's episode of Good Morning Britain that "there is a clue out there about what happens next and the Line of Duty fans know".
We are already counting down to Sunday's episode!
