Punters Suspect Ted Hastings Could Be Outed as ‘H’ in Line of Duty Finale. What’s the odds?

Plot Twist for AC-12 Chief Backed Down to 7/1 from 10/1

A long-standing riddle could finally be solved this weekend as Line of Duty fans continue to back some hot suspects to be outed as ‘H’ in the highly anticipated season finale. Trailers for Sunday’s episode have teased the possible identification of the infamous ‘fourth man,’ who has been pulling the strings and evading detection from Ted Hastings and his anti-corruption unit.

Line of Duty, concludes on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer

But Hastings himself has been the subject of speculation this week that he will be revealed as the mystery character, seeing his odds clipped into 7/1 from 10/1 with BoyleSports. However, several theories including Morse Code clues and suspicious anagrams make smug villain DCI Patricia Carmichael the 5/2 favourite to provide Line of Duty series 6 with a stunning final twist.

It cannot be Arnott can it?

Chief Constable Phillip Osborne is also a prominent suspect at 7/2, while Kate Fleming is rated a much more likely candidate at 16/1 than her sidekick Steve Arnott, who is a 100/1 outsider.

Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “The trailers for Sunday’s episode are building up the suspense and punters are divided on which way things are going to go. Patricia Carmichael and Chief Constable Osborne are prime suspects, but Ted Hastings is under suspicion too according to some speculative wagers this week, so we’re making it a 7/1 shot from 10/1 that he was ‘H’ all along.”
