[SPOILERS] My Christa Theory: Ep. 3

posted by Fiddle Diddle on - last edited - Viewed by 476 users

I just finished a second play through today (my Doug file) and something struck me about Christa that I didn't catch before. As the episode went on, I only became more convinced. Note that I admit that this isn't exactly my theory, I searched around and other people are suggesting this too, but I just thought I'd make a place for us all to talk about it, and I apologize if there already is one.

Christa is totally in the early stages of pregnancy, and I'm willing to bet that it'll be revealed in the next episode.

There are three main reasons I believe this, but aside from those there are also certain other nuances that I think support this theory: namely, Christa is frequently very concerned with Clementine's safety and intrudes casually into Lee's parenting abilities, and these behaviors are compatible with eager, soon-to-be parents.

Okay POINT 1: The conversation we first hear between Christa and Omid as we're climbing the ladder. As Christa argues that joining the group is a bad idea, Omid begins to ask, before being hastily told to shut up, this curious question:

"But what will we do when...?"

Keep in mind, Christa and Omid are alone at this point. What imminent thing could he be referring to that could possibly require the help of strangers? One possibility is that Christa is newly pregnant, but isn't willing to share this information just yet.

POINT 2: Omid is perplexingly VERY excited to see that Clementine, a child, is part of the group. One way to explain his outburst is that maybe he is enthusiastic about becoming a father himself.

POINT 3: Omid becomes disproportionately upset when Lee saves him first instead of Christa. Again, he seems to trail off before he can finish his sentence:

"She's a woman! Don't you know that..."

His angered response could suggest that there's more at stake than just Christa alone... perhaps his unborn child was also in danger?

Anyway these are just some thoughts and I'm looking forward to seeing if I'm right. Of course, I could be totally wrong. Not bettin' on it, though :cool:

Let me know what you think!

  • Nice. Very interesting deductions you came up with.

    They seem very spot on.

    I was trying to figure out what they were talking about before I reached the top of the bridge and this seems to be a possibility.

    If that were the case, it's interesting that she doesn't want them joining groups. Wouldn't it seem logical that if you were pregnant, you would want a lot of people there to help?

  • Yeah this is actually very plausible.

    That's true, we still don't know much about Christa's motivation for wanting to be alone other than the fact that she seems to be a hardcore survivalist. We'll just have to see about that.

    BUT, if this pregnancy is fresh news for Christa and Omid, perhaps they've just avoided other survivors up until now, and the first conversation we see between them has Christa first beginning to warm up to the idea of tagging along with a group (she's arguing rather that refusing to consider it).

  • Interesting theory. I think it's definitely possible :)

  • I think you're absolutely right. And here I was thinking they were paedophiles. No seriously.

  • That are some good spots and after thinking about you might be right. Christa wasn't to nice either but she atleast said something like: "He have a bad leg" or something along the lines.

  • Great theory. It's very plausible. I'm jealous I didn't think of it!

    Very interesting and plausible theory you have there :)

    When you ask Christa what she meant by that, she tells you to mind your own business.
    If they were talking about something non-personal (like a possibly harsh winter), she might not have told you off so bluntly.

    i defo got that vibe of omid,

    'wow you got a kid with you ?! cool' creepy stare at clem..

    and christa i don't think she's pregnant, more like she's bit but on meds that slow down the infection.

    but they are obviously a couple so thats why omid was being bitchy..

    but wow for a guy with dud leg he ran past the train car fast ! so i had to save christa

    i don't like christa she seems too much like lilly...
