The First Scroll

Rebecca Denton, Online Exec | 20:30 UK time, Sunday, 18 March 2012




If you have figured out the symbols across the first 6 pieces of the second scroll - you should be able to figure out the missing piece. What must happen?



  • Comment number 1.

    New scroll!!!

  • Comment number 2.

    YAY! We see a completed scroll!!

  • Comment number 3.

    wahay new scroll (despite the fact that I'm kinda lost now!!) :D

  • Comment number 4.

    Not New Scroll

    The Scroll - Dun Dun Der indeed.

  • Comment number 5.

    new scroll....but ouch -.- *feels a migraine coming on* does anybody know if the blog has got some of those paracetamol left?
    might be sensory overload....da*n

  • Comment number 6.

    Damn I was just about to leave when I saw this had been posted.

    What does it all mean?

  • Comment number 7.

    I don't understand what any of these scrolls mean... just what Regus said lol.

  • Comment number 8.

    Hmmm, except have already seen this in Ep 1 when FW "Eve" gets the last piece (yes I did pause it on iplayer!). Don't know how to interpret it - too many possible interpretations. So now I'm definitely getting off the blog sofa and getting ready for Making History! Byee for now!

  • Comment number 9.

    Woo hoo, new scroll...not that I'm very good at interpreting them, but this is the crucial one :P. Will be interested to see what people say.

    Oh my goodness, just signed on after a very busy afternoon, there's no way I'm going to be able to catch up with all those posts, sorry people!

  • Comment number 10.

    Aaaaaaaahhhhhh!!! *can't think of what to say....too excited*

  • Comment number 11.

    ahh got green boxed in the moment of crucial new scroll arrival!! Who wants to open the theorising? And cupcake betting?

  • Comment number 12.

    Wow, if read correctly this completed scroll will determine the fate of one or all of our characters! According to Rebecca!

  • Comment number 13.

    I reckon the last piece means that the baby (eve) who is the saviour will have to die to restore peace.

  • Comment number 14.

    time for me to be off...don't want too many spoilers, as can't see the show with all of you. bbca - next series, same day and time please!!!!!


    hope to see you for the Q&A

  • Comment number 15.

  • Comment number 17.

    *drives a camper van into the blog room* yeah, I live here now.
    So, I'm confused now. CURSES SCROLL!

  • Comment number 18.

    I think I need to know what direction to read the symbols in?!
    Popping the kettle on, caffeine needed!

  • Comment number 19.

    I havnt been following the scrolls i have no idea what any of it meens.

  • Comment number 20.

    16-@kirawalshii thx, you're a life-safe ^.^ my brain with migraine is just completely useless

    This scroll is soooo not helpful...we've been trying to make sens of that for ages -.-'

  • Comment number 21.

    Random guess - Death of the baby saviour restores balance in the world?

    God knows - & on that note I'm off

  • Comment number 22.

    Well time to go as time for the show.

    be seeing you.

  • Comment number 23.

    Don't stress guys! It's just a bit of fun. Go make a cup of tea and we'll see you on the other side!

  • Comment number 24.

  • Comment number 25.

    5 mins oh yhh so excited and there is more shirtless hal mmmm

  • Comment number 26.

    since I can't watch the show, I'll just torture myself with this scroll some more....masochist much? XD

  • Comment number 27.


  • Comment number 28.

    The sign for human baby on the bottom piece includes the sign that Regus said meant death (compare to the other one, where there's a stick figure in the belly, the bottom one has the death sign in the belly), so that must be where she got that the baby has to die. Not sure what the other 2 signs are, or why they are inside the circle

  • Comment number 29.

    vampire/ghost/trinity/death/human baby/moon symbol/saviour

    a baby made under the moon, child of the moon child of werewolves will become a saviour and will be born into the house of a ghost , raised by a trinity and will be the scourge of vampires

    in the future
    fire will be caused by a man against travellers and a arm/ armed man will not shield them
    the shield suymbol is broken ok
    eisode statrs in 3 mn
    see u all latter

  • Comment number 30.

    I really don't want anything to happen to Eve...but from watching other supernatural shows, i've found that they don't work for too long with a baby in the mix. Am wondering whether she will be killed or if she'll start to grow very quickly. The pregnancy itself wasn't a normal gestation period.

  • Comment number 31.

    Aaaaaannnnnnnndddddd ........ Breathe!

    @Damien Under your command I shall not stress. *bows*

  • Comment number 35.

    Heyyy Damien and Rebecca,

  • Comment number 36.

    So what happens if a vampire cuts himself?

  • Comment number 37.

    I was told we're all still adamant about no marriage proposals to Damien, LOL? I'll be good. :) Promise.

    The early questions I've read have really been Good so far! I don't have any questions in line but I'm really looking forward to seeing his answers to others!

  • Comment number 52.

    Only the holy trinity of Vampires, werewolves and ghost can save baby Eve from the clutches of the Old Ones and Future Eve. The circle is the completion of events. Long live the return of the Jiang Shi Brothers. Hopping White Haired Chinese Vampires everywhere. Ha ha ha!

    Alex and Hal - we didn't see THAT coming! Toby Whithouse is GENIUS!

  • Comment number 59.

    56 - Yep - Mrs Rachael Cutler.

    Tom and Cutler just having dinner at the moment - talking about Tom's future with Allison - I kid you not!


  • Comment number 60.

    @Lawchick States side here too! I'm kinda glad the bloggers that are watching are still being a bit elusive... :)

  • Comment number 61.

    was not expecting that and no hal :'(

  • Comment number 62.

    Wait What? That is so wrong. no word yet on what happened to Mrs. Cutler i assume? He is so up to no good. Please let him have a change of heart. Don't touch my Tom!

  • Comment number 63.

    Hal is complicit in what happens to tom. Pig. Tom is going to kill Alex. Poor Tom. Nasty Cutler.

  • Comment number 64.

    Hal drinking blood. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

  • Comment number 65.

    60 Jae. That's the beauty of it. We get little teasers so we don't have a heart attack when we actually watch but when we do watch the show we are still surprised, excited, shocked, etc. I am very impatient and look for spoilers every chance i get!

  • Comment number 66.

    noooooooooooooooo Hal

  • Comment number 67.

    i dont like it when people call tom stupid cuz i know im not the sharpest tools in the shed and it makes me feel sick when i cant do something or someone calls me stupid and i been biting my nails the whole episode now they hurt dam and i think hal gave cutler his wifes blood

  • Comment number 68.

    On second thoughts I dont like evil Hal. Revenge is sweet hay Cutler. Poor Alex.

  • Comment number 69.

    65 Lawchick The teasers make me want more! I'll be back in twenty or so...

    Must 'keep busy, keep sane'! LOL

  • Comment number 70.

    63 No Way! Someone mentioned that on the blog but I thought for sure that would never happen! well i still don't believe it. Is she a "human human" or baddie?

  • Comment number 71.

    yikes Hal was a nasty piece of work.

  • Comment number 72.

    This episode has to the best for a long time. I want one of Annie's cups of tea!

  • Comment number 73.

    @ Damien
    Did you put a lot of research into Hal's background and personality traits, such as his blood addiction? And do you feel that Hal ever changed, or do you believe deep down if he's the same 'man'?

  • Comment number 74.

    heres hettie

  • Comment number 75.


    Did you have singing lessons as part of your actors training? Would like to hear you sing again. :-)

  • Comment number 76.

    Hey I haven't commented before and I'm not sure if my theory (slither of a theory anyway) has been discussed, please let me know. If grown up Eve convinces Annie to kill baby Eve then baby Eve will die before becoming grown up Eve and therefore won't exist in order to convince Annie to kill her. It's a paradox. I'm not sure what that would mean as different sci fi shows have differing ideas about the nature of paradox but could that be what the circle on the scroll refers too? A kind of never ending circle of events? Of course if the woman turns out not to be Eve this is all completely irrelevant x x x

  • Comment number 77.

    Morning all!
    jeasus last night was manic! that episode was like wow, then i am not even gonna talk about q&a..... agghh cant talk about what happened for spoilers for us peeps! Sadly got to go back to the real world now D:

  • Comment number 78.

    i reckon that there should be a half blood baby from a vampire and human the yin to Eve's yang that save the world from both their kind. that is soooo going in my fanfic!

  • Comment number 79.

    If a vampire who has been recording vampires history since 400ys can misread scrolls, so can certainly a human less privy to vampires
    hence if regus can be wrong, Future Women can be wrong and is she the real War child.
    One reason to hope is that Mitchell said during season 2 that vampires and Old Ones are fater world domination and 'then nothing comes of it'
    my bet they all are posied ready to strike and then 'something happens' and LT will pull out this 'something' on sunday
    but at the cost of one character and Damien has given us a big spoiler and poor rebecca so overwhelmed has missed it
    but not the BH blog research time
    no. no. no. not us....

  • Comment number 80.

    first scroll

    top left scroll

    reading this time from left to right and up to down

    in a house which was haunted- cross in house symbol, lived a trinity and a baby
    which had been born to the moon- which had been born to werewolves
    this baby was destined to be a saviour -

    now reading from bottom up

    and be the death to all vampires on earth
    - the big circle being earth

  • Comment number 81.

    Hi all! There was so much to think about in that episode, I barely slept last night. I'm like a zombie at work today.

    I just wondered if perhaps the third scroll doesn't mean that Eve must die to save the world. Instead, I think it means

    The human child of death will be the saviour of the world

    The baby symbol with the death symbol within could be referring to the fact that Eve is the "daughter" of Annie...a ghost and therefore broadly speaking, death. They made a big deal of having Eve call Annie "Mum" throughout the episode and I still think it will be of vital importance in Ep 8.

    I'm probably desperately clutching at straws because I don't want to see Annie leave as she would never in a million years abandon that baby or allow it to cross to the other side alone.

  • Comment number 82.

    time as in future, but as is also infinite
    in the future, or time and time over again and again
    a human will travel ... to bring fire? with his arm? and protect
    we have not discussed yet the 2 disjointed bars

    a time traveller will bring fire to protect??? the saviour???

    the result being in the third scroll

    the saviour will be a dead human???

    very christic one could say of any saviour
    'I am doing this because I love you'

    and some bloggers have been suspecting that the yin/yang things is a love symbol- because of given love

    I wonder if the real saviour is not hidden very well since the very beginning

  • Comment number 83.


    ah I recognize you as a soul sister
    yes the scrolls and the answers is in it

    time and time again vampires will try to kill the saviour but a human will travel forth and shield it using fire , protecting the saviour

    saviours are generally not found in the obvious
    saviours are not going to be kings and glorious
    saviours are well hidden and atypical

    what if the saviour was human indeed but not the woman we think

    Eve would protect the real saviour, would shield the real saviour , would deflect from the real saviour

    Griffin and Cutler going after the baby-baby. while the real baby saviour is somewhere else since the very beginning under the radar

    because if it comes to a dead woman
    we have Eve, Annie and Alex who fit the description

    and if losing one's wife can drive a man albeit a vampire to total madness, see Cutler, losing Alex - have you noticed the red shadows of make up under damien eyes since he has drunk blood... could drive Hal back to Lord Harry.

  • Comment number 84.

    76 Yeah, you're right in that it depends on the show's own thoughts on crossing your own time line. I'm struggling to word this so it makes sense, but if you think of Future Eve being in another timeline/dimension that branched off from the point where Annie chose to save her (instead of let her die) then it's fine for her to be alive when baby Eve dies, since it's in another timeline. She's just simply crossed them to get her message to Annie and other naughty stuff she's been doing!

  • Comment number 85.

    Good afternoon all (I think I put morning on the other blog - I'm off work sick so I think I should be let off).

    So we finally have the full scroll and we should be able to read it. The only thing I'm still not sure of is the bottom right symbol, yin-yang in a cup?

  • Comment number 86.

    "Eve" in episode 1 is Eve the baby? going back to the past to kill herself?

  • Comment number 87.

    After all the madness last night of the blog and that AMAZING episode, I can settle down now and try figure this bad boy out! :D

    (1) I think we're pretty sure on the first one(on the left) which tells of the birth of a human baby in a house with a supernatural trinity (even though there's no symbol there for a ghost so a little bit of doubt there) under the symbol for the moon(so born to werewolves) Then the godhead symbol with the symbols for vampire and death on the other side - so she brings death to the vamps.

    (2) If I'm reading in the right direction the next one is the bottom scroll. This scroll I think is the most confusing! Because there's that weird symbol on the right :S But that's definitely a Godhead/saviour symbol and the other one some kind of baby... A death symbol in the belly bit ... maybe it means abortion?! or a baby that brings death (which would be our baby eve). It all hinges on whatever that weird ying-yang like symbol means! It could mean ghost(Annie) or the "ring of steel!" which has meant humanity's downfall...
    But if it tells of the stage we're at now, of how baby eve will cause the death of humanity by being kept alive, surely someone would have guessed in the 400 odd years it's been studied?! Unless they think it means she must be protected to prevent death... I have no idea! XD

    (3) I think the third scroll(right hand side) is the one Regus explained to Annie, about the nemesis. Maybe the symbol that looks a bit like the symbol for travel means "nemesis" because the other symbols are Human, Arm, Fire and Time/eternity which maybe is what makes the fire mean past-tense "burnt". But the symbol for time and that one that's so similar to "travel" makes me think it's about our time travelling Future Eve...

    That's all my thoughts so far ... that unknown symbol on the bottom scroll is driving me batty, I'd love to know what it means - Rebecca if you're reading this, maybe another symbols-key soon please?! :D

  • Comment number 88.

    84 yeh that's a good point. Of course it could be that we're desperately over thinking it and that Eve has already saved the world by sending Hal to Annie and Tom and she doesn't know it yet x x x

  • Comment number 89.

    Ok I've got two theories, let me know what you think and correct all my errors lol:

    1. Annie will have to somehow accompany baby Eve to the other side thus fufilling her purpose so her door will open too. This connects to the idea that the old neighbour ghost introduced that your crossing over act doesn't necessarily have to be a good thing, just something you have to do. So baby Eve goes, Horrific future predicted by future Eve avoided and (unfortunately) Annie passes over BUT with Alex to replace her if we get to Series 5. Downsides to this tho are that it's quite simplistic and I don't really want Annie to go!!

    2. Future Eve told us that she tried to chnage things, sending Kirby to kill baby Eve but crucially arranging for Hal live at the house. She knows eveil blood fuelled Lord Harry and assumes he will immediately kill baby Eve. But what she has forgotten is that when Hal is with good people (Leo & Pearl, Annie & Tom), has his routines and he is not drinking blood he is NOT the sadistic killer she knows. Future Eve herself says the only Hal she knew was as Lord Harry while Annie points out Hal has often 'changed her nappy' so clearly future Eve has already changed things. In sending Hal to the house she has done the opposite of what she intended - she has made him more human and less killer. Hal will not become Lord Harry, he wll stand and fight with Tom and Annie (we hope) and Annie just needs to have faith and not let baby Eve die!!

    I like the second option much better - any thoughs?? Please share, I need something to keep me going til Sunday!!

  • Comment number 90.

    My attitude to scroll is thus: other, cleverer people work them out and post their theories and then I use these to create theories of my own.

    The theory I'm sticking to is the the nemesis will be a 'time-travelling human with a burnt arm' i.e. future Eve!
    She is both nemesis and saviour - but not in the way she thinks.
    She is the nemesis because she is trying to kill the baby which would allow the vampires to take over the world.
    She is the saviour because she sent Hal to live with Annie and Tom which has been the deciding factor.

    I'm sticking by this because little things like "Tom once killed some humans by mistake and never got over it"
    I think this refers to the club. If Hal hadn't gone to live at HH, then the Alex thing wouldn't have happened and Hal probably wouldn't have been at the club at all, thus the humans wouldn't have got out like they did. So Future Eve has already changed the past so Tom, Hal and Annie will work together to defeat OOs unless Annie guves in and kills the baby!

    I so desperately want one of my being human theories to be right but the writing is always too amazing and intricate for me to EVER guess right! :(

  • Comment number 91.

    First sorry for repitions but put it on what i now is is not the right blog this one is

    •Comment number 492.At 12:48 22nd Mar 2012, You wrote:
    •415 onwards @EdwardGeorge
    I like what you say over all the idea about Annie using prugatory to change her time lines is a good one (and does put a rather big spanner in the works) all ghosts could do that then! or why don't they? but I wonder if we are missing a trick here about alternate time lines,
    (as i posted sunday episode blog)
    (I loved being human the original, I really did, and BH the Next generation is entertaining but why do we have to bring Time travel into this (even in purgatory))

    Eve said that the minute that she appeared to Pearl,Hal and Leo, she changed thier reality and it splintered off, well Annie was in that reality, so now that she has shown Annie the 'Future' at a differnet point doesn't that also mean Annie's reality has again split off from Hals and Tom's?


    Hal in Eve's future was a monster BUT that was a future without having met Annie and Tom so could this not take him on this path where he is NOT Lord Hal. In Ghost 'EvE's' future he had no one I am guessing because he would have lost Leo and Pearl(poss.) and so fallen out of his OCD routines and maybe fallen back into killing? but this one he has met Annie and Tom and Alex.............so Maybe this will all be different.

    Maybe by doing this Eve will with the help of Hal , Tom, Annie and Alex beable to for fill the prophecy, and stop the Vampires.

    I've got a sneaky feeling that if TW has written this Next episode that something is going to happen to Annie......

    Annie has Killed 2 living people Kemp, and the old man and killed Curby, what makes her killings any different from vampires.... They all kill for survival....

    Vamps for blood...
    Annie to save her friends or baby eve...

    As for the Prophecy about the Burnt arm evil, what if ghost Eve is actually that evil and she is tricking Annie into killing Baby Eve?

    Oh and werewolf blood is toxic we how hear (funny how they beat up WW for fun and get blood on them before now) Anyhoot what if Eve's Blood is what will kill the O.O.? and that's why she has to die?
