UK news Line of Duty: Top cop revealed as 'H' as AC-12 get their man at last last news

PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! ""All this time we've been chasing shadows. If this is right, he's been under our noses from the very beginning." So now we know. After six weeks of white-knuckle television that's gripped the nation, it all comes down to this - H stands for halfwit. The last man standing, the elusive lynchpin of organised crime and corruption has finally been revealed - the bumbling, blundering DS Ian Buckells; he of the "crap suits and dad cars".Hands up, how many Line of Duty fans had Buckells as the brains behind the murky goings-on of the OCG? As far as criminal masterminds go, he's 'definately' no Moriarty - the man can't even spell.To be fair, he doesn't claim to be an evil genius; just the man who "passed things on".When asked by Superintendent Ted Hastings: "Have you no remorse for all the suffering you've caused?", Buckells replies: "I didn't plan it or nothing, did I? They just kept asking me to sort bigger and bigger stuff."Some viewers will be disappointed at the denouement. But bringing the H plot-line to a conclusion was always going to be a tricky task. Had it turned out to be one of the holy trinity of AC-12, Hastings, DI Steve Arnott or DI Kate Fleming, we might have had a riot on our hands. Many viewers would have liked to see the smugness wiped off DCS Patricia Carmichael's face or Chief Constable Philip Osborne cut down to size. But you can't please all the people all the time.I'm still not totally buying it about Buckells though, but maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part. I want to believe that there's another H still out there and that AC-12 will ride again, with Hastings reinstated at the reins. But even if that happens - Mother of God, let it be so - show creator Jed Mercurio will probably begin a fresh story arc.Back to the action, and a strongbox found beneath the OCG's workshop floor contains crucial evidence that links Carl Banks to the murder of investigative journalist Gail Vella. Knives stained with the blood of murdered cops Maneet Bindra and John Corbett are also discovered, linking their deaths to Ryan Pilkington. A third knife is stained with Jackie Laverty's blood, the mistress of police officer Tony Gates from series one. The OCG framed Gates for her murder. Case closed.Acting DSI Joanne Davidson, remanded in custody in HMP Brentiss, is told she's being transferred to MIT headquarters for interview but it's a ploy by OCG to bump her off.Digital communications routed via Spain, where retired cop, Marcus Thurwell, had been living, show Davidson's life is in danger and AC-12 discover a production order was falsified to move her out of jail.AC-12 intercept the abduction and Davidson is saved. She reveals to AC-12 that the man she believed to be her father was Patrick Fairbank, former Chief Superintendent, currently incarcerated in Blackthorn Prison for child sex abuse and corruption.Now we get down to some good old fashioned detective work as the cyber crime team discovers Spain was a mere decoy and the digital communications originated in the UK. As AC-12 close in on their man, DC Chloe Bishop unearths damning evidence against Buckells; handwritten notes containing the misspelled 'definately'.

. All roads lead to Buckells now and under interrogation, he comes clean.The "mundane, basest motive" for his corruption is "plain simple greed" and Hastings furiously tells him: "You rose through the ranks alright, leaving a trail of blunder behind you. "How some people can fail upwards beggars belief."Buckells replies: "I've made total mugs out of you lot" and refuses to cooperate any further. Before he's returned to prison, Hastings tells him: "No one makes mugs out of AC-12" - except they do Ted. I've sipped tea from one.The Gaffer finally comes clean too and admits to Arnott and Fleming that he paid John Corbett's widow £50,000 as atonement after telling OCG man Lee Banks that Corbett was an undercover cop. He says he thought Corbett would 'come in' if he knew the OCG believed there was a rat in their ranks.Arnott and Fleming believe him, but Hastings clearly has some soul-searching to do.With Arnott under medical review, he and Fleming head off to the pub. I can't be the only one who detected hints of romance here.When Arnott tells her: "I'm not on my own mate, I've got you" and Fleming later tells the medical officer that she would be lost without her colleague, I felt that.Maybe the mates have realised they're more than mates and will head off into the sunset to mate. Imagine their babies - waistcoat-clad with piercing eyes and killer cheekbones.As for Hastings, well, he decides to do the right thing and tells Carmichael that Corbett was murdered because of his actions, but not before delivering one of the stand-out speeches of the series."None of this (police corruption) could have happened without the wilful blindness of those in power and those in power should be held to account."It devastates me that we have stopped standing up for accountability and we have stopped caring about truth and integrity."As we approach the end, the photographs of the six guest leads and police officers under investigation are removed from AC-12's board. There's something so final about that scene. The golden trio step into the elevator and go down, perhaps a metaphor for their unit.Viewers are told that Buckells may be immune from prosecution and if so, no evidence relating to institutionalised corruption will be heard in court.We're left with the parting words: "AC-12's powers to curb wrong-doings in public office have never been weaker."That can't be right. He's Hastings, like the battle! It can't end like that. Just let him win, if only to give us hope that sometimes, just sometimes, good can triumph over corruption and incompetency."
