Christa has posted a diary entry.


  • Comment number 1.

    That's a lot to say on Matt's little revelation I'll begin transcribing and will post it soon.

  • Comment number 2.

    aww, so Christa does like Adam, poor Matt

  • Comment number 3.

    i like how a werewolf is comparing the boys to dogs

  • Comment number 4.


  • Comment number 5.

    Christa is growing on me as a character I think. I just wish we saw her smile. Just once. She's always frowning or angry. :(

    On the topic of the diary entry; Me thinks she doth protest too much?

    Won't wash your hand for a week eh Christa? ;)

  • Comment number 6.

    i cant really see it can someone type it up EWAN?? thanx 2 whoever does it oh can they do it today i go on holiday tomorrow like omg no updates on the blog i will have to ask my friend to tell me whats going on and if anything is updated ahhhhh i cant doo it somebody HELP!!!

  • Comment number 7.

    aww... Christa likes Adam! Lol! I have to admit i didn't see that one coming. I don't think that Adam fancies her though. And i agree with EP number 3, haha, Good one lol! I don't think she killed Matt. I think it's good to see a different side to her, a more sympathetic, kinda guilty side as she thought that if Matt hadn't fancied her then he might not be dead. Then also the Adam kissing her hand thing. She would never let them see that side of her! The hardened 'i don't care' attitude is just a front.

    Stalked By The Dead

    So – big news! A dead kid fancies me. Aren't I just the Luckiest girl in the school?

    Gotta say, I'm not keen. And before we get into the many reasons why, can I just say this has nothing to do with weight. Even if Matt looked like Bras Pitt and had a six pack like an egg box, still not happening.

    Eggs. See, he's even got me doing it now.

    It's a basic character clash. I've got one and he hasn't. No, that's not fair. But there is a kind of basic incompatibility. I always judge a man by his Mp3 collection I once had a boyfriend who downloaded nothing but 'Best Ever' compilations of chart hits. It was a clear indication of his staggering lack of depth which I only wish I'd known before I'd snogged him. It would have saved me a hell of a lot of time figuring out that he was a dribbling idiot.

    I've heard Matt's favourite band. He made Adam play a track. It sounded like someone with laryngitis screaming in a steel mill while someone else threw a drum set down some stairs. If he'd lived Matt would have become a metal head. He's already got the build. And he's certainly cracked the 'live fast die young' thing which is not my bag. At all.

    The really weird thing about this, and something I'd not thought of before, is (crossed out i) this if Matt didn't fancy me, he'd probably still be alive. If he hadn't been staring at me that day, he wouldn't have been anywhere near those toilets and so wouldn't have died. Unless of course the killer has been stalking Matt for weeks, just waiting for the right move to strike.

    That thought makes me feel a bit better.

    If Matt were a dog, he would be a St. Bernard. Looking up at you with doleful eyes, as he slightly begs you not to to take him to be put down for peeing on the rug. Or eating your sofa. Whole. Which really isn't the kind of vibe I want in potential boyfriends.

    Where as if Adam were a dog he would be a Chihuahua. Who needed the snip. Badly. And until such time will continue to mistake your leg for another Chihuahua.

    Honestly, I could have dealt with Brandy. No problem. But oh no, he has to take advantage of the situation and 'pretend' to be my boyfriend. Which apparently involves him morphing into an octopus. I was so close to elbowing him right in the teeth, which admittedly would have slightly blown our cover. And would have projectile vomiting in his face. Which was another option I was struggling to avoid.

    The really scary thing is that Brandy believed it. She didn't look at me and go: 'You and him? No way! She is way out of your league.' She just accepted it. Me and Adam. Boyfriend and girlfriend.

    And then he kissed my hand.

    Seriously, I won't wash it for a week. To think. His lips touched my hand.

    Oh no, I mean the other thing don't I? Bleach and a wire brush until you see bone. Or simply lop it of at the wrist with a machete. Only way to be sure

  • Comment number 9.

    Checking what was caught up on during the transcribing.

    Dog references - classic werewolf mentality

    The lady doth protest to much assumptions,

    My ideas

    The fact that Christa is now hoping Matt was targeted because that would take away the chance of her being in any way to blame for Matt's death.

    The Chihuahua reference I knew it I said on the blog as a joke there should be a talking Chihuahua and we have Adam. You have to admit she knows her breads.

    Well what do I make of it - Judging boys by their Mp3 downloads - God that makes me feel old gone are the days of CD collections.

    I could have taken care of Brandy, that statement could have been with words as well as being true.

    and another thought on the we've been so stupid. it seems as if the sky outside is quite dark.

    Adam wouldn't care about the full moon much assuming it's the werewolf's concern.

    Some will see what I did there others can be told.

    Christa is still denying what she is and if as I suspect she has only changed once.

    My hopes and dreams for the next episode might be coming true and we get to see.


  • Comment number 10.

    3, EP: Yeah, I agree too, lol.

    So Matt is a St Bernard and Adam is a Chihuahua, I can't draw anything from those comparisons other than what we've been presented with so far and how Christa would come to this conclusion.

    I'm interested in the ex she mentioned. Is it the same one that Brandy referred to and if he is the one who made her a W/W is the pop song thing a clue?

  • Comment number 11.

    Ah nice! At least we know how she feels about the situation she is now in. Sympathetic aswell bringing out another side to her.
    Also the fact she did have a boyfriend before...

    3.I find it's ironic actully. Guessing she's finally coming to terms with the whole supernatural stuff.

  • Comment number 12.

    ok TBH I dont think this entry gave us much new info to go on, certainly not with the who-dunnit.

    so christa likes adam... we got that much from the start. Lets face it she is pretty good on the whole denial thing. Her thoughts in EP1 admitted her condition, and yet she denies it repeatedly. She knows what she is and yet cant face telling anyone else.... Just like her and Adam now.

    It can't help having the whole WW and vampire thing on top of all the other teenage angst and low self confidence.

    Anyway I have alot more questions about christa that still need answering.

    1 - Her changer ( who changed her? my money is on Tom from Being Human, I'm also betting he is the mysterious ex that Brandy mentioned).

    2 - Phasing (where is she changing?, has someone taught her the chicken in the woods trick? or is she doing an early george and shutting herself in somewhere?.. if so who is letting her out?, if not is she just out killing indiscriminatly?)

    3 - Mentor (does she have one?, If so who? she didnt recognise adam and matt for what they were immediatly, which suggests noone has taught her anything)

    Just a few things Ive been pondering lol

  • Comment number 13.

    The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

  • Comment number 14.

    hmmm just seen on the beinghuman wiki a pic of christa transforming in the school sports hall....... thoughts???

  • Comment number 15.

    There are still 4 episods left so i think the murderer might not even be a character that has appeared yet. This leads me to assume that it could be steve (Matts friend) or even someone like Brandy's mum or Matt's Dad. We haven't seen him yet have we.
    Also Brandy can't be a vampire cause she has a reflection.

  • Comment number 16.

    She's saying she likes Adam. And then she's denying it in that panicky way when you accidently say something like a sercret that you weren't supposed to.
    I am so confused about this now.

    8 - the thing on the "we've been so stupid" I noticed that it is sunset in the background so she will be concerned with the full moon, but do you think she will mention it to the boys?

  • Comment number 17.

    14 - Yeah I think that too. It does make sense, no-one is around at that time and no-one will be close enough to hear screams or growls and if someone hears a howl they may just assume it's just a neighbor's dog (my dog howls every now and then).

  • Comment number 18.

    it does make sense and it doesnt. Remember the scratch marks and the total trashing george gave the house in bristol?, not to mention the scratch marks on the walls of the old isolation unit he used to use. If she transforms in there with all that wood flooring, climbing frames, sports equipment etc then she will trash the place too... it cant be her regular spot (does she even have a regular spot?).

  • Comment number 19.

    16 - What I'm hoping for is yes the transformation at the end of the episode.

  • Comment number 20.

    I'm pretty sure she was being sarcastic about the whole not washing her hand for a month...

  • Comment number 21.

    20 - Do you think all female werewolves are sarcastic? After all Nina can be when she's relaxed enough.

  • Comment number 22.

    I agree with Ewan as far as the lady doth protest too much, but I think there are plenty of clues, when this series started she was surprised when Adam told her she was a werewolf, so I think she hasnt transformed yet, I think, after seeing someone spying she went to find out who, and she found a werewolf who had just attacked and killed matt (eaten? hence no corpse?) and who then scratched her, turning her into a werewolf, but explaining why she wouldnt know that. it answers all the questions, why no body, why she didnt know she was a wolf, and why he was in the loo.

  • Comment number 23.

    19 - I hope so too, the transformations are one of my favourite things in this

    Anyone gonna take a guess when the gore is gonna kick in?

  • Comment number 24.

    22. I like your thinking... but then... who and where is the werewolf that turned Christa?

  • Comment number 25.

    22. but Christa had the scars before Matt died because he saw them when he was looking at her get changed. I think she has been through at least 1 or 2 transformations.

    I don't think that the killer is supernatural either and if it was then i would be a bit annoyed, it would feel like a bit of a . i think it s a character that has been in it (or mentioned in it) from the beginning. A lot of people have been talking about steve McKenna and i think that he has been mentioned way to much to be irrelevant, after all, if mat had had no friends then we would feel a lot more sorry for him. also, i think (and i have already said this) that Mr Swan could be the killer because there's just something really suspicious about him.

  • Comment number 26.

    20. I'm with you on the sarcasm... she certainly comes across that way!

  • Comment number 27.

    * a bit of a sell out and i wouldn't be satisfied with that ending

  • Comment number 28.

    Do we actually know if it was a full moon when Matt disappeared? If it wasn't we are all barking up the wrong tree with the werewolf theories (pardon the pun) lol

  • Comment number 29.

    28. No we don't and it would have been to early to be a werewolf attack anyway because Matt remembers trying to talk to students leaving school just after he died, which would have been around 4 o'clock, far too early for a transformation, which usually happens around 8.

  • Comment number 30.

    You're right 29! So that leaves vampire attack (no body or blood anywhere), human attack (Matt's a big lad, so who moved the body - more than one person involved?) or some other supernatural being... we already have a ghost, a vampire and a werewolf involved, my theory at the moment is that it could have been something/one else... I'm refusing to go along with the 'janitor did it' theories. That's too scoobydoo for me!

  • Comment number 31.

    29 - Even though I agree with you that it's too early for it to be a werewolf and honestly if Crista has only recently (1 week at the most my guess) followed around by Matt then that is FAR to recent for it to be full moon time BUT it really does depend on what time of year because around winter the full moon rises at around 6 or 7 o' clock but at the same time the latest a school gets out wither there is something afterwards or not is about 5 o' clock so yeah you're probably right

    30 - Yeah even though I like the janitor idea it is really scoobydoo and it doesn't have it's own feel to it BUT if he didn't do it I think he had a part in it as in the getting the body out of the building thing not so much the killing

  • Comment number 32.

    Thinking about it the Janitor could be a sort of clue, A janitors closet has trolleys and such like helpful things that aid the fellow in the movement of heavy or awkward objects around the school.

    The Janitor is not the killer merely another clue.

  • Comment number 33.

    So if the janitor has the means, if not necessarily the motive for a killing in this scenario, he could have been helping someone else? Teacher for example? The PE teacher seems a bit of an arse so maybe he is involved (last seen alive in PE block afterall)... hates fat kids maybe?

  • Comment number 34.

    Ok I did mention before about the trolleys but in my head I'm imagining the janitor taking something out of a store cupboard then walking away without closing it and the killer sneaking in to take a trolley to use it to move the body that has been stashed in a box or a locker or something like that

    Anyone else imagine something like that?

  • Comment number 35.

    34 - Great minds

  • Comment number 36.

    14: where did you see this pic? I can't seem to find it!

  • Comment number 37.

    35 - I'm just happy I'm replying to the famous Ewan and you are making sense from it :D
    Looks like we have worked out (kind of) where the janitor fits in if he didn't do it himself

    Someone mentioned before that the pictures are staged. But remember even though they are staged they are supposed to look "realistic" so it would make sense in a school for a janitor to appear everywhere

  • Comment number 38.

    How odd would it be if it was Steve and the Steve guy liked Brandy or Christa and was defending her or something?
    I suppose we don't know enough about Steve, but even if we did, my theory is extremely unlikely...

  • Comment number 39.

  • Comment number 40.

    38 - hmm the defending thing would only go as far as beating him up not as far as drowning him

    I think all we know about steve McKenna is that he is allergic to egg, he collects pencil sharpenings in a bag and he was Matt's only friend I think that's all we know

    He is just mentioned quite a lot

  • Comment number 41.

    She was shocked that Brandy didn't question the idea so my guess is she was being sarcastic about the non hand washing as she promptly puts her machete it off to be safe line in. Though he may be growing on her in a way. lol

  • Comment number 42.

    still thinking she hasn't been through a change so my guess is she doesn't have a spot, although I think she saw the one who attacked her change (yeah the boy mentioned) so maybe like Nina is waiting to see.

  • Comment number 43.

    37 - We will find out in the next four weeks.

    Well for now it's time to ponder things - collecting pencil sharpening suggests that SM is very neat or at least obsessive if pushed outside his comfort zone I don't know how he'd react but as pointed out we've yet to meat him - that should be a fun episode.

    I also think if we don't get a scene with the Janitor quite a lot of Us will feel a little robbed. even if it's a Have you come to steal my supplies or where's my trolley?

    now the question of the wall or the moon what is the reason for stupidity. will references be made in the diary. or in a coming Christa vid.

    two more suspects and a transformation to go by my calculations.
    episode order goes
    talk together get a suspect
    question suspect
    and repeat.

    Now with a transformation promised in the middle of all this I have a theory.
    The last week will be a multiple suspect reveal and an longer episode to end everything on. after the blog has been filled to capacity over that final week..

  • Comment number 44.

    I do love that Christa girl! Don't know why but I do..I think I like all the teen supernaturals actually. But Christa is my fave....maybe I have a thing for werepeople...George is my favorite on BH...scratch that there's one I can't stand..lol

    Anyway, she has a way with words that one. Wouldn't Christa have to have had at least one change? That is if the timeline for BCH is the same as BH anyway? I saw someone questioning the whether or not she changed. I would really like to see it though.

    I'm on team his friend Steve did it! Which I may change with new evidence. lol

  • Comment number 45.

    Maybe Matt was killed by a vampire?! It could be someone Brandy knows as she had the bite marks. Maybe a relative, friend or boyfriend? That would mean that she knows who killed Matt. She could still be behind it even though she didn't actually kill him. And i don't trust anything Matt says so there could be a whole scene between the toilet and the car park! Maybe he knows who the killer is!

    But if it were a vampire wouldn't things be messy and they don't normally tidy up after themselves. What do you think??

  • Comment number 46.

    Oh I love Christa, she's so witty ^_^
    I think she's just not used to letting people get close to her, hence the protests about the Adam thing. I think she does kind of fancy him though, she just won't admit it to herself

    45. I don't think those are bite marks, that actress just has two moles on her neck: https://www.soapbabes.co.uk/2008/11/20/emma-rigby-hollyoaks-screengrabs-4th-nov-2008/ (sorry the website's a bit weird,. that was the clearest picture I could find :S)
    I do think we'll be seeing more of Brandy though, she's interesting.

  • Comment number 47.

    I love Christa too. I don't think Christa fancies Adam though. Sometimes when someone says something they actually mean it. It doesn't always have to have a double meaning.

  • Comment number 48.

    Number 46 - Keirawwr, i do agree with you about Christa not wanting to admit she might fancy Adam. Oh i see about the moles on her neck but in episode four we get two close ups of them. They could have used the other side of her neck if it was just about Adam seeing her blood. So they might be relevant. :)

  • Comment number 49.

    47-ziggy0 I agree sometimes when things are said they are actually meant. I don't think she is as she was kinda creeped out by his age and found him a bit of a perve. But, I could be wrong.

  • Comment number 50.

    yeah but Christa must have changed at least once, or she wouldnt believe what Adam says, even if you did fancy him, if a random boy cam up to you at school and said, "look i know what you are, im not like that" bla bla bla and then confesses to being a vampire and tells you, your a weirwolf being stalked by a ghost you wouldnt believe him unless you'd changed before...

  • Comment number 51.

    I don't think Christa murdered Matt, because since she's a werewolf she would have ripped him to shreds and eaten him ,but he told them that he drowned. My bets are still on Steve McKenna.

  • Comment number 52.

    I've been thinking about the fact that Christa said the person watching them was in the wall. So obviously there's access between the walls for whatever reason and probs not used often if Matt thought it was a good place to do some peeping from. If someone else knew how to get between the walls it would be a good place to stuff a body.

    But then I thought about the fact that it would have started smelling by know, enough for the humans to detect never mind Adam and Christa, so bang went that theory.

    I was just wondering if anyone else had considered this.

  • Comment number 53.

    Being a reasonably sarcastic person myself, I absolutely love Crista's blog entries. xD

  • Comment number 54.

    i don't think the janitor did it.hes probably there to make us think he did it, but i do think that he had something to do with it, but not the killing part.
    i dont think happened when Christa got scratched either because matt saw the scars when he was peeping on her

  • Comment number 55.

    53 - Haha same im quite sarcastic myself

    54 - Yeah i think you're right and that the janitor didn't do it but had a part in it indirectly.

  • Comment number 56.

    We have to think of a school here.
    What hiding places are there?
    There is a clue from Matt when he says he was in the car park, so where is the car park? Maybe near a maths block or a science block etc.
    Another clue is the toilets. Where are the toilets? If we find out the answers to these questions we can find out who hangs near there...
    I don't think itwas Steve because he is too obvious, the Janitor doesn't seem to stick with me for the moment.

  • Comment number 57.

    56 - The hidding places you would need to think where would they not be noticed and a smell wouldn't be unusual so not in the building but perhaps near it
    The car park is near the PE building
    The PE department probably has toilets in it since thats the way it works in my school

  • Comment number 58.

    we need a map of the school.

  • Comment number 59.

    christa + adam. poor matt! :( do u blame christa though? wonder where it will go from here? this is my favorite show. next week looks good slightly confusing though.

    i wish they would screen it mid-week it is so boring in the week. just watching the episodes over and over.:( oh well i like the double at the weekend.

  • Comment number 60.

    15- someone could have attempted but failed to change her. Something's up with her family maybe

  • Comment number 61.

    #59 Agreed. This should be on on a Thursday to whet our appetites for BH. Releasing it the same day is so stupid it hurts.. What a waste of potential week-round blog-buzz.

    Also I agree with #20 Christa's 'I wont wash my hand' statement is definitely being said in that heavily sarcastic tone of hers... but I think she's also taking the opportunity to make the sarcastic joke so that she can at least put the idea of having feelings for Adam in her diary, even if she doesn't want to admit it to herself. It is very much a case of the lady doth protest too much now...

  • Comment number 62.

    christa and adam sitting in a tree... :)

  • Comment number 63.

    i like Adam and Christa they would be funny together

  • Comment number 64.

    "We've been so stupid" - pretty sure that was just a reference to their failure to have noticed the security camera, and realise they could have looked at the footage for the day he disappeared to see who went into the toilet after Matt.

  • Comment number 65.

    Agreed that the Janitor shots have a relevance, but it's too obvious to be him. I suspect one of them will simply notice him hovering about pushing a cleaning trolley/ bin and have a eureka moment as to how Matt's body could have been moved.

    Who might the killer be? Dunno, but the murder happened so shortly after the 'peeper' was spotted, I think there is probably a connection. So it could be someone who was being protective of Christa (or Brandi, since she made most fuss and it seems to have been assumed the culprit was spying on her), and clocked Matt running away and into the loo, and so realised he was the peeper.

    My first suspicion was that whoever 'turned' Christa might be looking out for her and punished Matt - but if there was another WW regularly in the school Adam would know, just as he recognised Christa straight away.

    My other thoughts are mainly that the gym connection may be at the bottom of this. Brandi's father is also into martial arts, and the local school would be a natural venue for public classes after hours. Her brother has drug connections - so perhaps her family are using the place to deal steroids (or other substances) there? Her dad seems to have the pumped up musculature and aggression that would go with steroid abuse. All that info we got about her family's history seemed a bit pointed and overly detailed if they were just establishing they were violent criminals to throw suspicion on her. If the PE teacher is involved in some way (he does seem keen to get the toilets bleached now, the most effective way of removing forensic evidence), they could have concerns Matt might have seen something relating to whatever they're up to at some point, that would threaten them, whilst he was attempting to spy on the girls.

    (Though that said, it was hard to tell, but the hand that pushed Matt's head under the toilet water looked to me either feminine or that of a teenage boy).

  • Comment number 66.

    Anyone made note that her ex has been made reference to twice now i think?? could he be something to do with it? Brandy did say something about her recovering from him right??
