Did he see it and remember that they (Humans/Romans) just "nailed him to a cross" (in RS's words). Did she have it on then? If not, then my theory is buggered... Also, is it a female issue? Are there none on the engineers planet...

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-14-2012 5:40 PMThe Engineer realised that Dr Shaw was flowing with Alien DNA. Remember her fighting, performing caesarian - not an abortion as she didn't care whether it lived or died as long as it was not inside her - in a male MedPod, no debilitating pain after the op, no care about nudity, fighting, jumping, running, prescence of mind to launch her full grown new born on the Engineer and, to cap it all, saying that she wants to pay the Engineers' home planet a visit to ask them why they want to destroy humanity! If you knew a gang that wanted to kill you, would you knock on their door and ask them why? So the Engineer launched his killing spree once he saw Shaw thumped. He knew their lethal work was perfected in Shaw. He later wanted to subdue and capture her to deliver her to Earth as one deadly lady. Nope. Sorry but this doctor has changed like Dr Jekyll as the Alien DNA spread throughout her body and brain. She's Pandora whom the gods sent to punish mankind for receiving stolen goods from Prometheus. What did the ancient Pandora do? She opened her urn, not box and all the evils spewed out. Still, hope remained.

OvomorphMember0 XPNov-25-2012 12:51 PM"..has changed like Dr Jekyll as the Alien DNA spread throughout her body and brain..." Yes I can see that all of the alien DNA was not all removes with the actions od Shaw removed the alien. How has this DNA affected not only Shaws decision making but but biology? She cound be trasformed to a 'Queen" who somehow populates a planet with more xenos? This is probably more of a subject for the Prometheus 2 site but the connection here is with the Prometheus movie as we see it. Her cross may not help her in the new world. She has changed in out movie especially when the goo starts to do it's magic. So she is evolving but into what charactor? Somehow David is involved with Shaw's transformation and is leading her to the Engineer's world. After the needed repairs are made ot David's body Shaw could be subject to David's new inner directive,,and she might be the testing subject.

OvomorphMember0 XPJan-21-2013 9:45 PMI have given some additional thought to the raging Engineer and Shaw. I think he was a little bit in the dark about females..especially aggressive females. In Shaw he knew she was different, may have some extra alien DNA floating around. In order to impress her as many guys do he strarts up the Juggernaut and figures that would be quite impressive and maybe Shaw would say yes to date, not unlike guys driving fancy cars to impress the ladies.
