After what felt like an age for fans of the show, Line of Duty was back tonight (March 26) with new cast members, a new gripping storyline and a new batch of six episodes to keep us all hooked on its move over to BBC One.
There was plenty to keep viewers entertained in tonight's episode, and that last crazy twist had plenty of those watching at home gawking and reaching for social media to let off some steam.
Once gaping mouths were returned to resting positions, here's what people had to say about this week's rollercoaster of an episode:
Plenty of fans were evidently really rather excited about the start of Season 4:

Line of Duty is one of the best shows the BBC makes. Perhaps THE best. #LineofDuty- Suhail Mohammed (@shadowwraiths) March 26, 2017
And more than just a few people were gripped from the first few moments:

Then the classic twists started...:
And some thought they knew what was going down:
I’m worried for Jason Watkins now. He clearly hasn’t seen Westworld and doesn’t know what Thandie Newton’s capable of. #lineofduty- Caroline Hooton (@carolinehooton) March 26, 2017
Spoiler: they didn't, and the first episode had quite the shock ending that left viewers a little shell-shocked:
