Nowhere to run and seemingly nowhere to hide, Katherine Waterston's character Daniels is pictured below in the second official image from Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, which is currently filming in Sydney, Australia's Fox Studio. Daniels is expected to be a fairly pivotal character in the Prometheus sequel and will likely be one of the few remaining survivors of the doomed COVENANT mission to Paradise. What's more interesting is Daniels' overall look in the photo below, her attire, haircut and general expression reminds us a lot of Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley from Scott's original 1979 Alien.
Given what we already know about Daniels, it would seem that the photo above depicts a scene which takes place later on in the film. The seemingly damaged walls reveal open wires and the common area in the background seems to be on fire. Waterston's skin also looks glossy, which would suggest she's been sweating - likely trying to avoid whatever Alien monstrosity has been let loose on the Covenant vessel. The caption associated with the photo, released by Fox's official Alien: Anthology Twitter account, read "Nowhere to hide.", which further leads us to believe that the scene above is not one of Daniels relaxing, but trying desperately to survive.
