Fans will know that Dawn found out about Harriet and Malone's affair, leading to her going to the police and telling them everything about his secret undercover life.

However, Dawn took on more than she could chew, because Malone tonight vowed to get revenge by killing her.

But Malone didn't want to get his own hands dirty in the process, and instead gave recovering addict Dawn just enough heroin that would kill her.

Knowing it would make it look like Dawn had taken an overdose, Malone's sickening plan had clearly been thought through.

However, little did he know, Harriet was on to him and just as Dawn was about to take the drug against her will, Harriet rescued her at the last minute.

Raging that he was trying to kill Dawn, Harriet whacked Malone over the head, leaving him sprawled lifelessly on the floor.

While it looks like Malone might be dead, fans are convinced that it doesn't matter, because they're convinced Dawn has recorded the whole thing.

Malone on tape? 

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that at the very start of the episode Dawn set her phone down on the side after pressing some buttons.

If she has recorded the whole thing, even if Malone lives, she now has enough evidence to send him down for a very long time.

But will the recording work?

And will she need to even use it?

That whack that Harriet gave Malone was huge... could he be dead?

Either way it seems their ordeal at the hands of the corrupt officer might finally be over.
