What happened in the last episode of Line of Duty series six?

At the end of episode five, Kate was lured to a deserted lorry park by bent copper Jo Davidson (Kelly Macdonald).

Thinking that they were meeting to iron out some issues between the pair, Kate was instead met by Jo and Pilkington (Gregory Piper).

Pilkington pulled a gun on Kate, and soon Kate did the same.
