Broadchurch fans were sent into a frenzy last night when Joe Miller made a reappearance.
After he was found not guilty of killing Danny Latimer at the end of series two, Joe was banished from Broadchurch and is now working in Liverpool where Mark Latimer tracked him down.
But why was he back? And will Mark attack him now he’s discovered where he is?!
Not everyone was happy to see Matthew Gravelle’s character back in the drama – especially those based in Liverpool.
Can someone please tell me WHY they sent Joe Miller to Liverpool ????#broadchurch

While others suggested Ed Burnett’s ire was better directed elsewhere…

Twitter was soon rife with theories that Joe had been covering for his son all along:
Joe Miller covered for his son. The son did it all. That's why the violence is still happening… #broadchurch

I'm sticking to my theory that Joe Miller covered for his son and that there is a rapist cult in #broadchurch. Feeling pretty confident.

And fans were anxious for Mark ahead of a potential showdown.
I hate Joe Miller with a passion but I do not want to see a good man like Mark go to jail over him #Broadchurch
