After wracking our brains, Tommy Hunter certainly looks like a good place to start. So could Jo be his daughter? Remind yourselves all about Tommy here... 

Tommy Hunter was the original leader of the OCG who groomed Matthew 'Dot' Cotton as a teenager while he worked as a golf caddy before joining the police on behalf of the OCG. He also has links to Ryan in season one, as Ryan originally worked for him as a juvenile delinquent.

Could Jo be related to Tommy? 

It is eventually revealed that Tommy was still carrying out his criminal organisation while in witness protection, and Lindsey arranges to have him kidnapped from their custody by his associates. However, Dot had already arranged to have him and the police travelling with him killed.

Who is Jo related to?

Should Jo be related to Tommy, it would well mean that she has had a family connection to the OCG for years - but with Tommy dead, why would she still be in the OCG's pocket? If she is indeed related to the criminal, we'll be looking forward to finding out in episode five!
