Update #4 Profile of Christa

Post categories:

Adam | 14:50 UK time, Tuesday, 1 February 2011

Christa in dining hall

Adam has posted a profile of Christa.

Christa wants us to write these stupid suspect profiles, so I'm sure she won't mind that I've made her the first one. It's only seems fair...

NAME Christa Stammers

APPEARANCE Fit but unwashed. Could do with a little product. Starting with soap.

Dresses like an undercover cop at a homeless shelter. Big fan of layers. I'm guessing that by the time she gets undressed at night it's time to get up again.

ATTITUDE Unfriendly veneer covering thinly disguised raging horn for me. It's so obvious it's kind of embarrassing. Get a room. With me.

No, seriously. Let's get a room.

SOCIAL CIRCLE Emo? Goth? Outcast. Also new member of the Supernatural Monster Squad, an elite crime-fighting and lie down dance team which I just formed this very minute and which I am president of and founding member.

REASON FOR SUSPICION She's grudgingly agreed to help solve Matt's murder, which could just be a brilliant smokescreen to deflect attention from her. Also, just like most women, she turns into a monster once a month. Yes, that was a period joke.

OTHER COMMENTS I will of course do my best to work alongside her, although she is from a group that is my traditional enemy. I'm talking of course, about goths. Ha ha. Got you. You thought I was going to say emos. Which I wasn't because the first time I went to school in the 80's they hadn't been invented and as far as I can see an emo is just a goth with worse hair and crapper taste in music.

Talking of hair, hers is quite limp. She also has a sadness behind the eyes. I have a theory that the two may be connected. Perhaps she's spent years looking for some elusive shampoo and conditioner combo that will combat her specific problem of flyaway roots and split middles.

I wonder if she's tried crunching dog biscuits. I hear that they can be quite good for the coat.

Okay, okay. That was a cheap shot. In the spirit of co-operation, I am willing, in a gesture of great personal sacrifice, to drag a chicken on a string around a waterbed in a classy but surprisingly affordable motel.

Call me.


  • Comment number 1.

    Hello Christa Stammers

  • Comment number 2.

    So we see that Adam hasn't changed that much in assuming that every woman fancies him, his comments on Emo's is kind of accurate some of the more Emo music is well you get the point.

    So now there are 2 surnames now

    Matt Bolton
    Christa Stammers
    and from being human
    Adam Jacobs
    I checked on i player for his dads name.

    Quite a lot of dog jokes that if Christa ever saw I'm thinking there would be a desire to tear his head off for

    Now apart from that and she wants me jokes - I don't think in the toilet scene his eye-line that he's disinterested and comments about the cloths kids wear these days.

    There is also a suspicion that could she be the killer?

  • Comment number 3.

    It also seems that he knows about the chicken did George or Nina tell or do all vampires find it out now?

  • Comment number 4.

    ewan (2) - Maybe that's why Matt was following her around? Subconsciously he knew she killed him? Somehow I don't think she would be the killer though - I'm guessing it will be someone outside of these three.

    Also, like Annie and the Bristol house plumbing, maybe there will be an ongoing clue that will eventually reveal the truth? The only thing so far I can think of is the eggs... :/

  • Comment number 5.

    Nice to know a little more about Christa (I have been spelling it Krista..oops).

    It's weird, when I read what Adam has to say e.g. 'No, seriously. Let's get a room', I laugh out loud but when I watch it on the episode with Adam saying that kind of stuff, I just cringe like it's cheesy.

    I am intrigued as to how Adam knows about the chicken on a string thing?

  • Comment number 6.

    4 - Eggseedingly good comment there in the previous blog I pretty much dismissed the two most obvious killers as this will be going on for a while so

    not the bully
    not an accidental werewolf

    Now things I have been curious over

    the sick
    the unimportant graffiti

    both very important I'm thinking.

    small question on the previous blog and the being human one can you get past post 101 or is it just my computer?

  • Comment number 7.

    ewan (6) - Haha, thank you :) And no, I couldn't get past 101 either. It says 'next', but if I click on it, it just takes me back up to the top of the page. :S

  • Comment number 8.

    To add to #7 - I thought it only started a new page if there were over 500 comments?

  • Comment number 9.

    Well it's a good thing that it's not my computer but still it is making it very awkward.

    Not to mention the fact that my analysis has disappeared from the blog - unimportant personal gripe

  • Comment number 10.

    Ewan I was about to ask the same thing glad it's not just me.
    And i agree that adam seems more knowledgable on this than he did on BH

  • Comment number 11.

    5 - At least you didn't spell it Christie.

    As this is a Christa blog I thought I'd note some of her characteristics or comments made in the show.

    She mentions her scars so we know how she caught it
    "I'll wake up and there will be no scars"

    Also her sense of smell - or just the stink of the toilets
    "I can smell every lad since school first opened"

    these are the we know comments.

    Over all she is in denial or just hasn't changed yet - Not to sure about that theory after all in under a month she has come back from the attack changed cloths become disruptive enough to get the P.E teachers attention so I am thinking she's changed at least once.

    As to whether that's the case I am defiantly looking forwards to the conversations on the full moon episode.

  • Comment number 12.

    Ha ha it's taken me a while to warm to Adam, a lifetime of teenage sexual frustraion or not you would think after 46 years the teenage boy humour and comments would have got a bit old... But his concept of Emos may have just swayed me in his favour :D

    I don't think Christa did it, that would be much too obvious but I guess she had to be a suspect at least to begin with, what with being a werewolf and all... So when she 'sees' Adam has made a profile of her I hope we get to see her profile of him next because that has to be hilarious... I think Matt chose to follow her because she could see him and was reacting to him, even though she was creeped out at least she wasn't looking straight through him!

    A quick thought, all this talk of whodunnit - of course it may not have been a murder at all? Presumably someone else was involved/saw it happen/knows more than they're saying about Matt's death but that doesn't necessarily mean he was murdered, it could have been some kind of freak accident or something else - he doesn't remember anything and his body hasn't been found yet... All we know for sure is he has some unfinished business that's stopping him from moving on, which presumably has something to do with his death - In Annie's case that was finding out about her murder but I think we know the writers are better than playing the same card twice? I think it's safe to assume that all is not as it seems...

    As for the chicken on a string I thought that was Tully's thing but Tom was doing it too, either Tom and McNair must have met Tully at some point, which isn't impossible (don't think they'd have liked him much though!) or it's a generally known tactic that George had just previously missed out on... In which case Christa may do it too but it's unlikely she'd have told Adam anything as she's still in denial so he must have asked George or Nina about it...

    Oops didn't mean to write an essay there haha, I think too much!

  • Comment number 13.

    Hay! Whats wrong with emos? I like there music! But then again he has a point: she is very hot (dont worry i'm not a creep, well i'm not a pedo at least, i'm 16). Also i got a feeling (woooooo, whooooo) that she killed him or knows more than shes letting on.

  • Comment number 14.

    12 - Have you seen some of my posts essays are always welcome they give us all something to digest and comment on.

    His side of the conversation the asking George and Nina for tips, he could have done that after he met her,

    - Guys it's me
    - no I haven't killed any one it's this girl at school she's a werewolf I think she's - new are there any tips
    - because if I help her she might see me as a hero and well

  • Comment number 15.

    Small note as the sites gone a bit mental will be back after a long re-watch

  • Comment number 16.

    Hooray, regular blog updates! I like the idea of it being written from Adam's point of view, I hope we get stuff by the other two as well. I'd rule out Crista for obvious reasons, unless she did it while transformed but I doubt that.

    I wonder where she transforms? Indoors or outdoors?

  • Comment number 17.

    Just some thoughts about christas attitude change. As mentioned before she talks about her scars, and also mentions that she'll 'wake up and be into boys and ponies again' perhaps this gothic look occured before she was attacked and that the new look and getting in with the wrong crowd ultimately led to her condition.

    I still think she is somehow connected to Matt's death, although Matt following her because she reacts to him is gar more plausible.

  • Comment number 18.

    Okay I can't help it, I just want to give Adam a serious clip round the ear! Just what were his parents doing with him for 46 years? they must have kept him away from everyone or he would have been severely put in his place by now.

    The denial from Christa about being a werewolf makes it sound like she hasn't even been through a full moon yet but she has 'scars' not 'wounds' which implies healing.....not sure Christa is quite who she appears to be.

  • Comment number 19.

    I think Christa seems a bit like George when we first met him, he didn't want to bring 'th wolf' into everyday life and wanted to escape it. Christa seems to be doing the same, not wanting others to find out by avoiding people and getting close to them.

  • Comment number 20.

    For the knowing not accepting argument.

    "It's like he knew"

    also the problem she had with the word werewolf.

    If she is linked to Matt's Death did the same werewolf that scratched he attack Matt?

    The point I think that wounds and scars would require hospital or at least a doctor and as that wasn't mentioned by the P.E teacher then must have been a while ago.

    So if it was a werewolf on the full moon she was attacked before he disappeared. Not a week which is when - according to the paper He was last seen. Whether that was a full moon or not.

  • Comment number 21.

    Could Christa be a shifter, but not a wolf?

  • Comment number 22.

    she said scars whcich would be more wereolf. And he said she is a werewolf, they can tell

  • Comment number 23.

    Hmm, Suppose. Just a thought :)

  • Comment number 24.

    maybe a different type of wolf to George and nina

  • Comment number 25.

    Because she's also a teenager perhaps hormonally she's different from Nina. would this mean when she transformed it was different?

  • Comment number 26.

    I think someone mentioned this in one of the above comments, but I'm starting to wonder whether Matt was actually murdered at all. That's just the theory Adam immediately came up with. Perhaps Matt knows a bit more than he's letting on...?

    Plus, there's definitely some significance in the eggs...! ;)

  • Comment number 27.

    I love the idea that egg's are involved!

  • Comment number 28.

    I think Adam's never grown up mentally because his parents never had to see him grow up physically so he ended up like Timothy in Sorry only nobody really notices because despite the fact that he hasn't matured in 30 years his personality suits his physicality.

    Regarding the whole wound/scar thing, young people heal faster than old and I'm fairly certain werewolf dna is likely to boost your immunity and ability to heal.

    Perhaps Matt was the werewolf (which would explain his appetite) but for some reason forgot and maybe the hex is still on him even after death and that's why he's still around

  • Comment number 29.

    28 - Okay the Matt a werewolf idea that is just an Awesome crazy theory I think I like you

  • Comment number 30.

    Would vamps be able to identify ghost weres? Do they stay weres after death? Annie commented about not missing her "time of the month"...

  • Comment number 31.

    Matt is a werewolf?! So would he stille change even as a ghost?

  • Comment number 32.

    or still we're not talking in olde english

  • Comment number 33.

    Hmm a lot of interesting theories here
    I like the idea that Crista is perhaps a different type of werewolf it's an interesting concept
    I really agree with the giving Adam what he deserves he's a little p***k and I'd love to give him a good slap around the head but that would be a smidge suicidal
    I hope there are eggs involved with his death it sounds fun :L

  • Comment number 34.

    Adam, stay away from this Christa girl. She probably killed Matt and you might be next. Don't say I didn't warn you.

  • Comment number 35.

    Crista seems like a nice girl and a bit like myself (minus the scars) so perhaps the changes are'nt so much scar related as she is just finding herself. Something that is very human and normal I guess you could say but it will be interesting to see how this story unfolds as we see more of the young (kinda) trio

  • Comment number 36.


  • Comment number 37.

    I reckon Robson Green dunnit.....noticed he's gone a bit quiet this week and I've heard he's not so ....hesitant in accepting his new self ;)x

  • Comment number 38.

    Okay there are 4 free days and 2 more main character profiles So I think we'll have another day at least to mull over who Christa is.

    Me starting with the opening tracking shot. we see her navigate past the dancers. - My thoughts were this is new to her trying to find her footing.

    I am of the theory she has changed once - despite the rings on her fingers. The cord around her wrist however does that have meaning?

    Now When Nina first got scratched most of her cloths were overly long so as to hide her arms is that why the Layers that Adam comments on?

    Her comments as she leaves Adam with a definition of the teenage male to think about she does say

    It's like he knew.
    What's possible and what's impossible thing is under review right now.

    both phrases that suggests at least one change.

    Now the reaction when she gets called a werewolf is to go quiet No looking at Adam like he's a loony and the whole speaking to the dead still unsure.

    The toilet scene some have commented on her knowing who Eggward Woodward is. all it shows is she knows his name.

  • Comment number 39.

    Yeah, references don't mean much, Got all of the references, and I'm still a teenager.

  • Comment number 40.

    I just wondered is there any way that werewolves can recognise the one that gave them the curse?

  • Comment number 41.

    40 - I think it's not that easy for them remember Tully had to out and out say it to George so who knows.

  • Comment number 42.

    I don't think so since, like ewan just said, Tully had to say to George and if they are in wolf form when it happens how can they recognise them?
    Unless, like Nina, they saw them transform
    And George didn't even know he scratched Nina and he wasn't aware of it but then again he never really tried I guess?

  • Comment number 43.

    Is it clear how much time has passed between Adam leaving Nina and George and where we see him know? I reckon its longer than it seems - a bit of time to settle, decide what his plan is, get 'clean'. So he may be in touch with Nina or George or Mitchell for a bit of advice and help over this time therefore knows more than he did in BH. Stuff like the chicken etc. Loving how Adam is a perpetual teen not just to look at but in personality too.

  • Comment number 44.

    Possible connections between Christa and Matt:

    1. Christa killed Matt during her first full moon. Neither realise this as of yet.

    2. Christa and Matt were both attacked on the same night. Christa survives and becomes werewolf.

    ewan, care to add? :)

    I still personally think she isn't involved... It's the eggs I'm tellin' you! ;)

  • Comment number 45.

    I think this is supposed to follow pretty closely time line wise with being human. So not that much. I think that things are going to happen quickly relatively any way in being human less time passing.

    After all they have two bands of vampires.
    Cage fighters
    Racist and latex
    Who might not like them

    A Father and Son werewolf to meet

    a Zombie


    So there is a chance that both shows will keep a very close time line.

    as for the chicken and string comment 12 and 14 explored the idea of how he would know.

  • Comment number 46.

    44 - I still think she knows and has changed but is still saying that she hasn't* As I pointed out in 38 quite a lot of things scream that she has

    Good point about the egg he could have swallowed it whole puked a bit chocking and died.

    * admittedly it might come from my theory that werewolves aren't fully werewolves till they change for the first time.

    Another thought will they have a moment where they meet Matt's mother?

  • Comment number 47.

    44 - That is an interesting theory about one being killed and the other only scared a bit like George's story

  • Comment number 48.

    The moments always hit as I try to get some sleep

    being human the names on the wall

    Cunis (a bad spelling of Curtis) - Danny Curtis the bully? They are talking to in the next episode preview

    Minsy - maybe another misspelt name in a later episode?

    Fatboy - Matt? or another suspect?

    In my defence it is late I am tired but interesting to me at the moment

  • Comment number 49.

    To the peeps wondering how Adam knows about the chicken on a string thing, when he firsts talks to Nina, he calls her Goldie (sp?), like the Blue Peter dog, so he obviously knows right from the start what she is. So maybe he's met others before. True, he has stuck with his parents until now, but they had control over him and probably treated him like a regular son other than the obvious blood treatment. It's just a suggestion. But maybe George and Nina talked about such things before he departed from them.

  • Comment number 50.

    If u ask me I think Christa is in denial just the same as george was when being human began about the whole werewolf thing. If Christa did kill matt she probably wouldn't remeber becase she probibly was a wolf when she did it but i dont think she did kill matt who did kill him well we will just have to wait and find out.

  • Comment number 51.

    right before anyone asks or says its like adam knew about christa being a werewolf he is a vampire and vampires can smell werewolfs a mile off

  • Comment number 52.

    49 - we thought of the chicken in 12 and 14

  • Comment number 53.

    I've only had time to skim all these comments so sorry if this has been said but I think it's pretty obvious that Christa must have transformed at least once, probably more and is well aware of what has happened to her/what she is. That teacher said about her attitude changing, which is presumably as a result of being turned, but he didn't mention her recently coming back from time off sick, which she surely would have if she had been attacked and injured. So it must have been some time ago. She has scars so her wounds have had time to heal. I don't think she's denying it because she hasn't realised what she is yet, but it's not exactly the sort of thing you'd chat freely about and admit to the first person who asks, especially if it was someone a bit creepy and weird like Adam appears to her. George would deny it too, he's denied it in the past when vampires have noticed. And he's had ages to come to terms with it and knows exactly what happened to him, he knew before he ever met Mitchell and had dealt with it on his own for months before that. Christa as a teenage girl would probably see it as a personal private problem that is no one else's business! So having Adam show up and knowing what she is, would probably throw her a bit. I'm sure after a few more episodes or when the full moon hits she won't be denying it anymore.

  • Comment number 54.

    29. - Thanks ewan
    The ghost as previous werewolf idea strikes me because I've written were stories before and were beings are often killed off after infecting another. I reckon ghosts don't smell so Adam and Christa wouldn't know. Perhaps Matt's hex hasn't been lifted because there hasn't been a proper ceremony.

    Another idea is that perhaps Matt ate a dodgy 'egg' and was eaten alive by the thing inside?

  • Comment number 55.

    glad to see Adam hasnt changed he really fancies Christa or is it females in general lol
    Intresting theories guys i personally can't wait to see how it pans out lol

  • Comment number 56.

    I must say that I did want knock Adam's block off at the start of the BH episode for his mouth by the time George and his plant rescued him I kinda just accepted he's a grown man stuck in a teenage body and this is how he's coping. 46 year old Virgin!

    I too think Christa has changed at least once but much like George is in denial. I don't think she had anything to do with Matt's murder either. He just hangs around her as she can see him. Even if she only hurls insults at him, it is communication.

    Maybe his mum's eggybread killed him?

  • Comment number 57.

    i think christa has changed two or three time i dont think matt is a werewolf or was killed by one (including christa) and i was wondering where is adam staying right he cant get a good paying job as he is only "16" or thats what people think and who would sell a house to a "16" year old 48. i saw that to the first time i saw BH but i think what you think is a n is a r and a very small rushed t i dont think the danny did it becuse it would be over to quickly
    just something you can ponder about
    well we are just going to find out what happend to matt

  • Comment number 58.

    It's not Christa...too obvious.

    Probably not the bully either...but then I've not had a chance to see this weeks episode.

    What if...somehow Matt choked to death on an egg...and that's all it was, an accident. That said, his unfinished business is clearly with the bully...but to what end?

    Oh and Annie...do the lads know you're checking up on Adam?

  • Comment number 59.

    I Cant Wait to find out more about Christa i find her very intriguing as i cant work out if shes transformed or not... shes constantly in denial about what she is..yet still gives werewolfy refrences such as the bathroom scene where she said she could smell all the boys that had been in there since School started.... EXCITING

  • Comment number 60.

    Are we absolutely sure she's a werewolf? (as others have hinted at)

    Evidence for:
    Adam thinks she is - he could be wrong; he's a bit of a fool
    She can see ghosts - so can various other Types
    She has a good sense of smell - hmm. dunno.
    She has scars - lots of teenage girls have scars, particularly if they self-harm
    She has changed recently - that basically defines the teenager imho; one minute it's all fairies and pink and ponies, the next minute it's mascara and "whatever" and doom.

    Maybe the reason she can see Matt (and that Adam thinks she's different) is that something awful has happened to her (abuse?) which has changed her somehow.

  • Comment number 61.

    I love how they are so bitchy towards each other right now. Personally I don't think it was Crista who killed Matt - the eggs have to be significant somehow, surely? Maybe he had a bad case of salmonella, hence the throwing up in the loo?

  • Comment number 62.

    Eggs seem to be a big clue...who's Matt's only spa who's allergic to the offending chicken poop?

  • Comment number 63.

    Haven't watched this yet! totally will!
    Haha Yay! Another werewolf! :D
    NEED TO WATCH!!!!!! IT WAS FILMED BY MY SCHOOL...not in my school though...

  • Comment number 64.

    so eggs is a recurring theme and "egg rolls" only friend is allergic to eggs, could it be him?

  • Comment number 65.

    if i was her i prob would have broken his nose before turning all wolf and eating him alive

  • Comment number 66.

    60. urm sorry to burst your bubble but in the advert you clearly see her change

  • Comment number 67.

    66- what advert
