It was a thrilling Line of Duty last night, with the penultimate episode in the series seeing Joanne Davidson (Kelly Macdonald) taken in for an intense line of questioning by AC-12.
While Joanne had previously told Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) that she "wasn't bent", she was deliberately evasive when questioned by Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), Patricia Carmichael (Anna Maxwell-Martin) and Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar).
After responding 'no comment' to a stack of questions, an increasingly impatient Ted snapped: "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph and the wee donkey, can we just move this thing on before it drives us round the bloody bend?" much to fans' delight.
Hastings is known for his unique turns of phrase, making 'Mother of God' and 'Now we're sucking diesel' common parlance associated with the show.
However, with things looking increasingly bleak for AC-12, and with time rapidly running out in the search for H, many Line of Duty fans may have read a little more into Ted's off-the-cuff comment.
As we're desperately trying to figure out who H could be, some viewers turned armchair detectives that the mysterious 'fourth man' is Ted's 'wee donkey' in a series of Twitter gags.
"Am I right in thinking that the Wee Donkey is H?" joked one viewer, adding a gif of Donkey from Shrek for good measure.
"Is the wee Donkey H?" another person tweeted Martin Compston.
"I'm so confused right now I'm starting to think the Wee Donkey is H," a third giggled.
"Pretty sure the wee donkey is H," a fourth asserted.
Others merely laughed at the typical Tedism, with one person writing: "Ted is such a legend."
Another added: "Knight Ted Hastings!"
"Really powerful performance by Adrian Dunbar tonight," a third said. "If this is the last series we are all going to miss Ted Hastings terribly."
In other Line of Duty news, some fans believe that Marcus Thurwell isn't really dead.
In the final few minutes of Sunday night's episode, Spanish police raided the property where Marcus Thurwell, played by James Nesbitt, is alleged to have stayed - only to find two dead bodies.
However, some viewers believe that Marcus is alive and well - and actually hiding in plain sight...
Line of Duty continues Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
