WARNING: This article contains spoilers about Line of Duty
At the beginning of Line of Duty season six, AC-12 was given the green light to launch an investigation into DCI Jo Davidson (Kelly MacDonald).
DCI Jo Davidson is leading the investigation into the Gail Vella (Andi Osho) murder case but has raised eyebrows over her conduct.
Jo Davidson is not the only problem facing AC-12, the identity of H, the fourth bent copper within the police force has still not been uncovered.
The identity of H has been on the minds of viewers and AC-12 since season four of Line of Duty in 2017.

As corrupt officer Matthew ‘Dot’ Cotton (Craig Parkinson) lay dying, he tapped his left hand out four times, which in morse code represents the letter H.
For years, AC-12 have suspected H was the letter of a first name or surname, such as Hastings, Huntley or Hilton.
It was not until the end of series five it was uncovered there are, or potentially were, four people working as ‘H’ and so far, only three have been caught – Dot Cottan, Gill Biggeloe (Polly Walker), and Derek Hilton (Paul Higgins).
Now the loveable DS Steve Arnott has come under suspicion as being H due to events in season six, episode one.
Steve, who works for AC-12, is leading the investigation into Jo Davidson, which may mean, like Dot Cottan, he is in a good position to thwart it and allow the Organised Crime Group to operate.
He is also looking for a way out of AC-12, which may suggest he has something to hide.
Steve is also sharing information with Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) who has left AC-12 and is working as a part of Jo Davidon’s murder investigation team.
It is not looking good for Steve as at the moment, some fans suspect Kate is also H.
In episode one of season six, Steve arranged to collect Kate for a discussion about AC-12’s investigation.
Signalling to Kate he had arrived, Steve flashed his car lights four times.
Line of Duty fans will remember in morse code, the number four represents the letter H in morse code.
Is Steve really H? fans will have to wait and find out.

Speaking to Express.co.uk and other press, without giving any spoilers about the new series, Jed Mecurio reflected on Dot Cotton’s signal.
He said: “I think what you get from the trailer is that this [H] is still a ghost haunting AC-12 but it haunts the characters in different ways.
“If you’re chasing something that is tormented you there are some people who are going to redouble their efforts and there are some who maybe want to drift away from that particular endeavour. Maybe it’s time to give up.”
Whether H will be revealed this season or will ever be revealed will be up to creator Jed Mecurio.
When asked if he knew already how the H storyline will conclude, Mercurio simply said “Yes.”
Speaking about fan theories online which suggest he is actually H, Mercurio said: “You know what? I think that one of the challenges with the H storyline is to stop it from being anticlimactic.
“And I think if it would be me, that would be the biggest anticlimax of all.”
