After a long two year wait, Line of Duty came back with a bang last night and it contained even more twists than we were expecting.
But, while it's great to have AC-12 back our screens with Ted Hastings at the helm of the best anti-corruption team in the business, we have been left with some questions.
The last time we tuned in with the officers, they'd managed to lock up DCI Roz Huntley and it felt like they'd finally exposed ACC Hilton as the elusive 'H', but as the look from Hastings confirmed, the masked men were still at large.
Since the finale of season four, Steve Arnott has recovered from being thrown down the stairs, Kate Flemming is still battling to balance work and home life and Hastings' personal life has taken a turn for the worst as he's kicked out his home and forced to live in a cheap hotel he's struggling to pay for.
Last night we finally saw Maneet Bindra getting caught feeding information about her colleagues to Hilton, just two months after returning to work following the birth of her first child. Maneet was thrown off the force, before she turned to the Balaclava Men to help her imprisoned cousin.
Needless to say, it didn't go to well as Stephen Graham's new character John Corbett found her and the last we saw, she'd had her throat slashed as she lay bleeding on the docks. This is when we found out Corbett had been playing both the Balaclava Men and us by posing as an undercover copper himself.
But if the masked men are still at large then who on earth is H? The cliffhanger episode did nothing to confirm or deny theories that Hastings is in fact H - and therefore the most bent copper in the history of Line of Duty.
However, Adrian Dunbar has confirmed that while there's no answers at the moment, they're coming.
"At the end of the last series there's couple of strange looks between myself and Vicky [McClure] which would suggest there is something going on with Hastings, and that will be explored this series," he told Metro.
"His personal life comes into focus again and he'll find himself under scrutiny and that's another part of the storyline that's running alongside the gang crime stuff."
Line of Duty continues next Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
