For me... the person there looks like David... It looks like he's wearing an engineer cape. Maybe he has destroyed the small ship we've seen in the trailer... Why should he do that? What are his plans? What does he want to achieve?

Is this from Assassin's Creed? J/K. It would follow that David exposed the population of the planet to black goo. I am speculating that he did so because Shaw was mistreated or earth was threatened. I'm in the "David 8's not a bad guy" camp. The brunette David is the one with the heel turn. (Pure speculation)

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!

I am pretty sure that the dead engineers in front of the temple have something to do with that... Will the scene be a flashback or not? Maybe not... In the released picture, we've seen Daniels in front of an temple with another person... and no engineers... So the action will  happen after that scene...

Fact is, we will see engineers, the space jockey chair, ampules, an gigantic engineer head and statues (as we've seen on the leaked pictures)... and David and Shaw....

and we will definitely see some cgi scenes like in Promtheus... who knows what will be in cgi...

@Myrddin365 Maybe you're right...that David has killed the engineeres to his own advantage... or to save mankind...but then why the distress call to the covenant...

Hadn't seen anything about a distress call. What I've seen implied, let's colonize this planet, oh look! It's David! So my speculation was based on that.  If he sent a distress call that is odd. He would of course know that anyone landing on the planet was doomed. A distress call would just be a trap.

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!

In the upcoming Empire magazine spread, the article states they are in route to a planet but are stopped due to that of a distress call they pick up. The Empire article is on one of the threads posted on the site here.

Who made that distress call? And how? Shaw might not be able to make a distress call, because she doesn't know how to use the engineer technology... But David does... So if it is a trap... why?

David007, thanks. Hadn't seen that one.  It might be a distress call from the engineers after David effs them up with the goo...

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!

What makes you think that David is the one who unleashed the black goo on the Engineers, if you don't mind me asking.  

The reason I ask is, Prometheus shows that Engineers had the black goo before the crew arrived on LV-223.  The Engineers are already dead on LV-223, so one could assume that it's very possible the Engineers on Paradise are already dead as well.  This may not be the case, but even still...  

I just don't see the Engineers, these supreme beings, having their downfall be because of David.  Just one Engineer smashed David to bits.  A whole planet of them?  I don't think they would ever let David close enough to cause any harm to them.

I know the black goo can spread very quickly once it is out.  But like I said, I just don't see the Engineers giving David the opportunity to to do that.  

If the Engineers were still alive when David and Shaw arrive on Paradise, it's very likely they would have killed them on sight.  

All of this makes me believe the Engineers were long gone by the time David and Shaw arrive on Paradise. 

I'm not trying to be rude, I just genuinely want to know your thought process behind your theory :)

@ dirtwolf I read in a lot of the stuff here that David would be responsible for unleashing one of the monster types. That has to be the Neos, because the Xenos are a known commodity that have been around for quite some time. 

The Neos are what killed the prometheus planet because there were clearly some head bursters and back bursters in the pile of bodies outside the big head room. 

If all the engineers are dead because of black goo when David and Shaw get there, David doesn't unleash anything. The Neos are just running around Willy Nilly. He has no agency in their propagation.

I can't think of who or what else David would innoculate with the goo. David has many faults, but acting irrationally isn't one of them. Such is the nature of speculation with incomplete information. I would prefer, personally, that David was a protagonist. So that bias does cover my assumptions


Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!
