What happened to Steph Corbett before the Line of Duty finale?
Fans believe Steph Corbett has a role to play in the finale, which will air on Sunday night.
Steph cultivated a close friendship with DI Steve Arnott and even a touch of romance throughout this series.
However, she is also the recipient of the seedy £ 50,000 CS that Ted Hastings gave her at the end of the fifth series.
Steve, knowing the money is seedy, is in a difficult place.
