Fans tuning in to watch the first episode of the latest Line of Duty season have been absolutely shocked by the opener.
We've been waiting months for the next instalment of the gripping series and the premiere certainly did not disappoint.
One of the massive talking points of the first episode was DCI Joanne and Farida getting busy.

Farida and Davison... and all those locks... Kate and Davison's little hand hold :eyes: I have no idea what's going on but mother of God I love it #LineOfDuty- Steph is real tired of this :blue_heart::rainbow: (@Melancholic4Evr) March 21, 2021
Vicky McClure, Adrian Dunbar and Martin Compston were all back in their roles, however we were introduced to a new addition in the AC-12 team with Shalom Brune-Franklin.
Kelly Macdonald also debuted as guest lead Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson, the senior investigating officer on an unsolved murder case whose suspicious conduct attracts the attention of Anti-Corruption.
Everyone was also lapping up Ted Hastings' new catch phrase.
Now we have the agonising wait until next week's episode.
Episodes will air on a weekly basis on the BBC and on iPlayer, and there will be seven instalments to enjoy this time around, making it the longest series yet.
Shooting wrapped in November, with creator Jed Mercurio paying tribute to the entire crew for their efforts amid the pandemic.
He said: "#LineofDuty6 We couldn't have done it without the dedication of cast, crew and supporting artistes to rigorous CoViD safety.
"Not a single day's filming lost, and 100+ colleagues finished the shoot in good health. We looked out for each other. We followed the science."
