if alien5 happens, its seemingly suggests the torch is going to be passed from ripley to newt. I think she has had her fight and killing her off is the right move but how would u have her go out? I don't think on her death bed is fitting or shot or anything so mundane. for me the xeno or a face hugger has to get her

For the record, Ripley did officially get facehugged and died in Alien 3 in a pretty touching, epic and conclusive scene.


NeomorphMember1823 XPJan-24-2017 11:46 AM

im aware of that but alien5 takes place before alien3. and hardly conclusive considering her participation in AR


FacehuggerMember316 XPJan-24-2017 11:51 AM

I would have her go out permanently.


NeomorphMember1675 XPJan-24-2017 12:06 PM

I think that they made a fine ending of Ripley in Alien 3. She had fought against the Alien and the company in two movies already and then meets her ultimate ending in A3 by throwing herself into the fire so the company won’t be able to get it and turn it back to earth (and therefore stops a potential disaster). Alien 5 isn’t needed in my opinion.


NeomorphMember1823 XPJan-24-2017 12:19 PM

im torn between A5 being made and it not. im not a huge fan of A3, it was ok but didn't give us much in the way of something else other than the quadrapedal xeno. how did the egg get into the cryo chamber? the queen is never anywhere near that area and bishop gets chopped so he couldn't have done it. id like to see how it could be done in A5, not bothered about newt but think hicks was a good character and much prefer him alive in the books and comics


PraetorianMember3073 XPJan-24-2017 12:22 PM

I think it would better for her not to be killed.They already killed her once,why do it again?

if they r planning on going farther and making more after alien5 then from foxs' persective it makes sense as weaver isn't getting any younger. I just think having the same character endlessly fighting the same battle can get a bit stale


ChestbursterMember739 XPJan-24-2017 12:32 PM


Maybe I wasn't clear enough. By conclusive I mean ending A3 and also Ripley as a human. I have nothing against that ending (canon btw) so I can't think of anything different as it was good already.

In AR, "she" is a resurrected experimental hybrid clone.

PraetorianMember3073 XPJan-24-2017 2:44 PM

I posted this in another thread in response to someone else's comment and then realized I should probably drop it in here.


"The only true glorious ending I can imagine for her at this point would be eradicating the xenos from existence (she would need to do this to one-up what she did at the end of 3). The problem with that is, you never will really know if she's destroyed all xenos in existence unless you involve extreme concepts like time travel. Such concepts that would ultimately feel like a stretch in the alien franchise."


"I will backtrack on that slightly and say I have come up with perhaps one way she could go out in style.

She would have to die protecting a new born baby (or several) from being facehugged, taking the facehugger herself.


There is the option of a similar situation (protecting human youngsters) by ripping a facehugger/xeno apart with her bare hands and dying by the bloody acidic mess that follows."

Ripley upon ultimate disaster...looks at newt and lets her enter the escape shuttle...the door closes and a glass window stands between them..newt realise rilpley didnt enter. And looks at her shocked.ripley in sorrow says.

"you have to live,you are the only one alive that knows what happened here you have to destroy weyland yutani,their agenda will eradicate our race newt and i must stay here thats the only way i know this ends"

"ripley you cant do this ,you cant die,i cant do this alone!there must be another way!dont do this!"

with admiration and pride ripley looks at newt with a tear dropping

"I remember a little girl that survived against all odds and became a hero ,you can and you will newt,im counting on you,our race depends on it, you must survive,and i will finish what i started"

"ripley dont do it! I will stay with you we will kill them together and we go together,you saved me once let me help you!"

Newt is covered in tears ,and anger with ripley sacrifice,

Ripley faces newt with a tear escaping her eye but smilling

"i dont need help to where im going , i didnt save you, you saved me newt i will kill them all , promise me you will take care of wy little girl, you will allways be my little girl" 

Comformed with ripley decision,she is now aware theres no turning back,she could see in her eyes,commitment of a true hero that will sacrifice her life for the human race,and for herself.

"i promise, you will allways be a mother to me,end this morherfukers once and for all"

ripley mans up and puts her hero face with strong conviction and rage

"i will! Take care my little girl"

Sorrow takes over as ripley  press the button sending newt in a safety shuttle

She turns around with her special suit, engineer weapon...going towards the center of the hive to activate manually the self destruction sequence to blow off the facilities in space.

As she reaches the hive destroying some xenos in the way everything looks calm, a subtle silence pairs in the zone, she looks at the dead gutted alien king(created by wy scientist as ultimate weapon for war purposes and realsed upon the hive to contain the queen)

From the shadows of a dark passage...the huge head with scars emerge...slowly...looking at ripleys eyes..step by step the huge body appears as she growls..imponent,majestically

Ripley looks at her with courage ,bravely as a true hero..

" we meet again you *****, but today i aint running away, i will kill every single one of you motherfukers!"

Ripley is dodging the attacks she gets her leg slashed but manages to gut the queen with the engineer tech gun wy made..the queen falls?.as she growls  a sos towards close drones and warriors ..ripley walks towards the button to activate the bombs..with the difficulty she sits on the ground next to it..looks at the helpless queen...

" yes call them you *****, i aint running tonight i will send you all to hell.."

xenos starting to appear surrounding she presses the button in a hero posture and all her splendor.



Newt watching the explosion and looking at a wy logo (wy vs newt spinoff).

Post credit engineer ship appearing carrying what seems to be ripley body..putting it dowm on a altar and kneeling towards it as a omage..closing in flamboyant fashion..alien 1 music starts.

People cry and go nuts applauding.

I know i would.

You should add that to the Alien Stories thread. That was great!

For her cinematic end, I think the Alien 3 death was well done.


FacehuggerMember236 XPJan-24-2017 10:29 PM
