There was a point in this week's episode where it felt like they'd decided to hell with the 4th wall. 

When Kate and Davidson are together, the reference the "everytime someone says OCG", which is a common twitter line of duty drinking game.

Yes, exactly!

Similar in last week's episode when Ted was meeting Wise: "There's only one thing I'm interested in..." - and then a pause before he delivered the punchline, as if to give you a chance to get your drink ready. He might even have been looking straight to camera when he said "Bent coppers!"

Does anyone know if series 7 is happening? If it isn't, then this is going to have to wrap it all up, including the whole Laverty in a freezer thing.

As I understand it, they only had a deal to go up to 6 series. However, I'm sure they would have no problem commissioning a 7th if all involved wanted it. So who knows?!

Is it just me or is it all just a bit "Line of Duty's Greatest Hits Tour"? At least Ted managed to come up with a new variant on his "like the battle" line.

Well, they're damned if they do and damned if they don't! Ted has said "Like the battle", "BENT COPPERS!" and "MOTHER OF GOD!" in every series so far, so why stop just because people have noticed it?

As for the latest episode - we don't seem to have learned much, although the characters obvioulsy have. I suppose we'll find out just how involved Buckles is. Possibly he's so inept that he's working for the OCG without even realising it. A total patsy...
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

Did I fail an observation test, or did they not reveal who Jo is related to?

Damn cliff hangers...

And someone needs to explain to Ted what "rhetorical" means.

I think the writing has really gone downhill in this series, but I’m still enjoying it.

That headshot too... you’ve got to laugh.

The only thing that bugging me, is why DCI JD's seemingly superhuman powers of observation in spotting the getaway van parked up down a side street has been forgotten about?  It's been queried, and the fact remains...

So the shots fired at the end? The others turned up just in time and Steve used his new found Bondesque marksman skills again?

We discussed that possibility but I reckon Steve & co can't possibly have had enough time to get there. Not that they would allow such questions of plausibility to stop them, if previous events in this series are anything to go by.

Talking of "Bondesque", I enjoyed Ryan's "No, DI Fleming, I expect you to die" speech. His normal MO is shoot first, ask questions later.
