LINE of Duty fans have predicted the next bent copper will be Ryan Pilkington from the Organised Crime Group.
In what appeared to be a clue about the show’s final series next year, the youngster revealed he had passed his exams and was preparing for an interview.
In a brief conversation with Ryan, OCG leader Lisa asked: “I feel terrible. I didn’t ask how your exams went?”
Ryan replied: “Yes, fine. I’ve got a date for my interview.”
Lisa then told him: “Guess you’re going to have to lie low from now on.”
He said: “S***, I’m going to miss all this fun.”
She could be referring to the fact it was Ryan who slit the throat of copper John Corbett in last week’s episode.
The bloody moment left fans stunned as they realised John’s real identity had been compromised.
After luring him into a trap, Ryan jumped out from behind and murdered him in cold blood.
Fans now think Ryan is the next caddy replacing DI Dot Cottan who was found out in series four.
One said: “Why is no one asking what exams young Ryan passed- police exams? The next caddy?!?! He lying low now remember so not dead. . Watch this space!! #LineOfDuty.”
