What happens to Shaw after Prometheus in Alien: Covenant - Fan Theory0 Upvotes122 RepliesUpvoteAdd A Reply
What was a common theme throughout Prometheus which echoed personally with the character Shaw? The ability to create life. Originally thought to be infertile, when exposed the Alien matter on LV-223, by means of impregnation by Holloway, we learned Shaw was able to overcome her infertility and give birth to what became the Trilobite.
The key theme here is Shaw and her ability to create life, a trait only women posses.
My theory is this: Shaw is manipulated and used by David as a means to give birth and spawn a new Alien. A female reproductive system is required to complete a specific process by which David can create a new Organism. Not necessarily a Xenomorph, but something that has the ability to create life itself.
You'll notice, Holloway never gave birth to an Alien (despite doing so in early drafts of the script). It was Shaw, who gave birth to a Facehugger-like creature. Something capable of creating new life by means of "seeding" a host.
The only other crew infected by any Alien matter on LV-223 were male and they merely transformed into zombie-like monsters.
It is my theory (of many) that David uses Shaw, whether by means of infecting her with new Alien matter or by using her as a missing puzzle piece, to set in motion a chain of events which eventually lead to the birth / creation of the Xenomorph.
Building off of my last topic, this could explain why Shaw isn't in Alien: Covenant. Maybe what we see of Shaw isn't actually "Shaw" at all, anymore, but something else.
It's a far fetched theory, but anything is possible. What do you think?
Well its going to be interesting to find out.
I have pieced together what the Source had leaked, thats assuming it was TRUE
All seems to be similar to as if David ended up destroying Mankind, but Mankind had created other life and this other life in thousands of years came to try and meet their Human Makers but only came across David, a previous creation of his creators prior to the new ones.
Maybe thats hard to explain... ok, stupid analogy lol.
Basically it could be that Mankind hoped to meet its creators but instead we just meet another race created by the creators (Engineers) we hope to meet God, but we end up meeting his earlier creation... think Angels but only the Fallen Ones Remain... as they have rebelled and replaced their creators.
Engineers just servant race for a purpose, prior to rebellion and thus Engineers are to their creators, what David is to Mankind.
Heaven/Paradise is thus now Hell/Pandemonium
This is what maybe the route they are going for, well was prior to John Logan Re-write.
David is basically the bottom of the ladder of Parental Hierarchy He is a creation of Man who was a Creation of the Engineers, who where a Creation of Etc Etc.
David like Lucifer, sees himself as superior to Man/God and now David is Free, and knows the Engineers are Mortal and not God, he is interested in finding out what the Hierarchy is all about and if they are all gone, or are Mortal and Flawed, then with their Technology he can become God.
And Shaw may just be a Pawn in Davids Agenda.
It seemed that Shaw would be taken to get Answers, but they are not what she was hopping for and when she found out that Engineers played a role in our creation and Not GOD, and they are also Mortal and created Horrific Bio-Weapons intended for Earth.
What does she hope to find when she gets to Paradise, the Engineers Creators being more like her God and giving a reason for our Creation and that maybe these Gods are Benevolent?
But what she gets is further from what she seeks... she expects Paradise but finds Pandemonium.
Is what i am drawn to by the supposed information on Micheal Greens Re-write of Paglens Draft.
