The fifth series mainly focused on John Corbett, an undercover officer who can overcome any extent to catch the corrupt copper ‘H’ at the heart of the OCG. After some time, we realized that Corbett had connections to AC-12 chief Ted Hastings. In Northern Ireland, Anne-Marie, Corbett’s mom, was a police informer who had a relationship with Hastings. With the help of a lawyer Biggeloe, Corbett learned that Hastings was responsible for his mother’s death, and he also proved Hastings was a bent copper. But in the end, OCG found Corbett’s true identity and cut his throat.
