Line of Duty has had viewers on the edge of their seats since it came back for series 4 back in March, and episode 4 tonight (April 16) was just as seat-edgy as ever.
There was the nail-biting answer to whether DS Steve Arnott would survive after last week's rather nasty fall, some serious manipulation of just about everyone by Roz Huntley and a whole lot of tension
Warning: This article obviously contains spoilers for Line of Duty series 4, episode 4 – you have been warned.
After last week's shock twist ending that left Steve in a pool of his own blood at the bottom of a staircase, viewers were understandably relieved to see him alive – if not well.
Yay, he's alive (ish) #LineofDuty it's been a long week waiting for that!- sam shepherd (@socksinhell) April 16, 2017

In fact, some Steve Arnott fans thought it must be an Easter miracle.
This is the day Jesus rose from the dead. Steve Arnott will do it too #LineofDuty- becky rehill (@missbickybecks) April 16, 2017
There was a lot of discussion of Hastings' ever-increasing use of the word "fella".
Seeing as I'm working and can't watch can someone do a "fella" tally from #LineofDuty for me please? I'm guessing 18- Louise Robertson (@LouMRobertson) April 16, 2017
No-one was exactly shocked that Roz chose to lie to her husband Nick about what she was up to on the night of Infield's murder. (Reminder: killing him).
"I want the truth." No, Nick. You really don't. #lineofduty- Shortcrust Pie (@shortcrustpie) April 16, 2017
Probably for the best, lie about having an affair to your husband rather than tell him you murdered someone #LineOfDuty- Kelly (@DHPLover) April 16, 2017
Oh shit husband thinks she was cheating and she is playing along 🤦🏾♀️ #LineofDuty- Arewa 🇳🇬 (@Omalichanwa17) April 16, 2017
But viewers were pretty shocked when she went as far as to slap him later in the episode.
#LineofDuty Roz is going to fuck up her husband. She's a maniac....- Steph Allman (@Melancholic4Evr) April 16, 2017
What on earth! On top of everything, she abuses her husband. This woman is INSANE #LineofDuty- Sanoobar Patel (@Sanoobar) April 16, 2017
#LineofDuty now now Roz, that is not on! I mean, neither is committing murder, but we do not hit!- Sara Brown (@Sara_Brown21) April 16, 2017
Fans got a dark kick out of Roz turning on Kate and Co in the lengthy interrogation scene.
And, in the final twist of the evening, PC Maneet Bindra turned on her usual reliable character and betrayed the AC-12 gang – leaving viewers really bloody confused.
So, to sum it up neatly:
Line of Duty continues April 23 at 9pm on BBC One.
