Just a quick one regarding the second part of my title, anyone noticed since the leak of the purported alien xeno mould that someone working on the film put on instagram ( looks like an alien 3 model to me) that any or most recent news has been taken down directly relating to the movie. the news item with the title xeno revealed has definitely been killed. maybe there is some substance to it??. I dont know. anyway onto my main topic...

The fate of Shaw...

Remember a while back there were leaked descriptions of artwork for the new film, well an excerpt that i read was particularly interesting, and it was this bit..

''Another Concept showed a Humanoid connected to what looked like a Wall/Machine or like a Giger inspired Mainframe similar to the Deacon Mural..."

well forgive me if this theory has been bashed out however if it hasn't i think its a good solid theory as to whats happened to the character, im also tying in this theory with an old scifi series babylon 5. 

if any of you did watch babylon 5 you may recall the great machine that was on the on the planet, if not heres a picture 

look familiar?

Ok, we all know hollywood is epically famous for rehashing old ideas that were really good and i've a sneaky feeling this is what they've done...

now, this is my theory....

Shaw is now part of  a great machine that the engineers built, for what purpose , i have no idea, maybe like in B5 the machine can see through time and space?? for that i have no idea...

howver what ads weight to this is the original description of alien covenant. the crew of the ship find a paradise world whos sole inhabitant is the android david ....

hmmm so where is shaw? 

just recently shes been added to the cast, i feel were going to be in for a surprise as to what her fate may be and i think my theory may bea good one however i may just be putting a and b together and coming up with total nonsense however id appreciate any feed back as to what you think.


is hsaw now pat of some massive biomechanical machine and she was put there by evil david? thoughts please yall?

I don't know but I like the idea.

I wouldn't be surprised if something like this turns out to be the case.  Perhaps David hooks Shaw up to the machine just to find out what it does.  Shaw then gets upgraded to Shaw 2.0 during her experience.

Daniels would eventually stumble across Shaw and free her from the device, but both Davids would argue that it might not be the best idea to unplug her.  They have no real idea what the machine is doing to her mind, or how she will behave after she wakes up.

Maybe it turns out that Shaw is secretly a spy for a religious faction known as The Order.  Yutani's Quiet Eye software picked up on Shaw's potential to be a traitor years ago, but the Company is able to confirm that she wasn't a Yutani spy.  She's something worse than that.

The visual polygraph program was fooled by Miss Shaw initially, but a number of irregularities were noted in her video calls to the company.  Unusual levels of guile and dishonesty were recorded by the Quiet Eye tech. It indicated that Miss Shaw may have had a hidden agenda.  Weyland considered not answering her calls.

Many of the crewmembers of the Prometheus had secret agendas of their own.  In my theory, the Company doesn't like to talk about what happened after Shaw was left alone with the David.  Mr. Weyland suspected that she was a member of the Order from the start but wanted a "true believer" on board.  This was a mistake.

Weyland was a superstitious old fool at the end of his life, so he put a certain amount of faith in Shaw.

Some feel that it might be a mistake to unplug her. Others feel that she is a traitor to the company.  A lot happens in between movies, and this new Shaw is no longer an employee of the company.  Her contract isn't up for renegotiation.  They can't trust her anymore.  She might start actively working against the Company. They don't know yet.  It might be safer not to unplug her, but Daniels feels she might be able to use her.

Yep, this is EXACTLY how I expect Shaw to turn up in Covenant; it'll transpire that she's the mother of all the aliens.

That rumor came from a source that a friend has...

And so it can not be considered Fact... despite many things that was said way before Alien Covenant was announced (the source passed information in March 2015 about a lot of things included when the movie would start production)  and at the time those rumors seemed a bit off....  But then as time went on, Ridley had came out with comments that seemed to match what was said.

But again i cant say 100% sure if they was telling the truth, and also have to remember the Information was based on Paglen/Green Draft and so we may end up with a lot of differences.... i.e if we compare Spaights Alien Engineers to Prometheus.

They did also say while the information was in the draft, they claimed that changes could be made afterwards.... and Prometheus was the same... there was changes to Prometheus that was not in Lindeloffs drafts.  And then further changes after and during shooting.

For example, we have 2X Engineer vs Shaw Shoots, we had 2X Fifield Hanger Shoots and i dont mean the CGI vs Non CGI.... but there was a shot with Weyland being escorted to the Rover while Fifield was attacking.

But indeed the Synopsis and information with Shaw and Covenant does seem to be similar to the Source as far as Shaw playing a minor role but she Technically does not die.

And so yes the fact Shaw is not mentioned in the Synopsis and has joined shooting late does to me maybe mean she plays a Role that is related to a Plot Device as far as the Xenomorph or Similar.

Or she is to appear as a Flash Back Scene.

I heard a fascinating defense for the idea of Shaw becoming the Alien Queen, at first it may sound ridiculous, on the other hand its a bold, deep allegorical concept, Shaw who in her youth lost her MOTHER & FATHER, and had long sought out the truth of GOD/Creator/Engineers, we learn that she being barren cannot have children, she can never be MOTHER, through the cir***stances of Prometheus and being impregnated with the trilobyte she's metaphorically a virgin Mary. Through the course of Covenant in her search for answers, finding our creator/finding GOD, David use the Engineer mutigen to transform Shaw. Her mutation has evolved her past the point of being human, she's obtained the power of a GOD/Creator She is now a MOTHER/ She is the Alien QUEEN. Quite mind blowing.

this was an earlier theory, i maybe could see a hint of the 1st and 2nd step of this illustration (based off Giger's model).

stimulating in a biomechanical web, producing endlessly, the perfect organism.  

The 3rd step of the illustration is probably unlikely. 

fun to ponder, the trailer was awesome
