First Look At Line Of Duty Episode 6 Sees Steve Arnott Look Tense After Shoot Out

If you're obsessed with Line Of Duty like we are, then you are counting down the seconds to find out the result of last week's cliff-hanger.

The final few minutes of the episode saw Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) take aim at bent copper and OCG member Ryan Pilkington (Gregory Piper), who was also preparing to fire in a tense shoot out.

In hugely frustrating scenes, the screen went black as two bullets were fired - leaving the audience literally in the dark about who was killed.

And now, we can show you a sneak peek at what's about to happen in the aftermath, with two first look images from episode six.

The pictures show AC-12 arriving at the abandoned lorry park where sketchy cop Joanne Davidson (Kelly Macdonald) lured Kate in a bid to trap her.

Things are looking tense for the team, with Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), Chloe Bishop (Shalom Brune-Franklin) , Patricia Carmichael (Anna Maxwelll Martin) and Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) having all arrived on the scene.

And with Steve putting on forensic gloves as he walks towards where the shoot-out took place, with a shocked expression on his face, we can't say it's particularly good news for Kate.

While there are numerous theories about who survived the shoot-out doing the rounds online (you can read some of the most convincing theories here), it's looking increasingly likely Kate died to serial cop killer Ryan's gun.

Some eagle-eyed fans have spotted in the credits for the upcoming sixth episode of Line Of Duty, which are on the BBC website, both Vicky McClure and Jo Davidson's names are missing - as well as Gregory Piper's.

Vicky herself has teased this may be the end of Kate in the Obsessed With Line Of Duty podcast series.

Speaking to former Line of Duty star Craig Parkinson, who played 'the Caddy' Matthew 'Dot' Cottan, Vicky seemed to hint that her character could be about to kick the bucket.

Suggesting that he thought it was Steve who was going to meet his maker, Craig said: "I have put my chips on poor old Steve, up until this week... And as we know as actors, nobody is safe.

"When you started reading the script, how did you feel, how did Vicky feel when you were turning the page?"

Vicky replied: "Well listen, every episode of Line of Duty history is terrifying and [writer] Jed [Mercurio] is always there to serve the story - it is exactly what happened with Dot.

"Dot's time came when it was right to serve the story and that is what Jed will always do.

"I don't want to put everything out there but Jed serves the story."

We're going to have to wait what happens on Sunday night...

Line of Duty continues Sundays at 9pm on BBC One.
