Naturally, the post has led fans to discuss what might be in store for the final episode, with some fans taking it more seriously than others.

One Instagram user named transitorydreams wrote: "Is Dot alive & in witness protection & Ted has been using Dotโ€™s intel to try to take down the OCG from the inside (able to do this due to Dot) ever since series 3, or are you just two mates on a night out? Let us make a flow-chart of evidence... I donโ€™t know, but I do know youโ€™re trying to make it so none of us sleep until next Sunday! ๐Ÿ˜‚ What a ๐Ÿ˜ˆ you are!"

Another opted for one one of Ted Hastings favourite lines, exclaiming: "Jesus, Mary and Joseph".

And the responses on Twitter were just as animated, with one fan exclaiming: "Christ on a bike! Don't know how much more I can take," while another said: "told you the caddy would be back!!!"

However some fans thought they could be just shooting flash back scenes.

Meanwhile, a former undercover police officer sent tongues wagging when he turned the theory behind "H" in Line of Duty on its head.

Peter Bleksley was asked by Eamon Holmes on This Morning who he thinks 'H' could be, he completely turned the question on his head, and said: "Is it a person or is it a place?"

The star of Channel 4's Hunted added: "Cast your mind back to the flats where people were being held."One was flat B.

"Just putting it out there."
