So after seeing the prologue "THE CROSSING" footage on alien day, what made my mind start wondering was why all of the sudden did the Black goo go from a Chemical to a "PATHOGEN" because for those who don't remember or don't know a pathogen is a disease which is often communicable or capable of spreading from person to person and as we saw in Prometheus something happened to Dr. Shaw that caused the trilobite to occur and if people are right that it happened from Dr. Shaw and Dr. Holloway having intercourse then regardless of how it infects, she is infected and as we see in the footage as well Dr. Shaw is sweating profusely and doesn't necessarily look to be in the best health and if this is true and DAVID views Dr. Shaw as a mother of sorts after all the pain he caused her she still displays compassion and care towards DAVID and if she were to die it would push him over the edge believing it to be the Engineers doing even if not directly and it would support Chris' theory. what do you guys think?

Look upon my works, you mighty, and despair

Exactly, in the footage she has the engineer cloak on in a lot of shots but is very visably sweating.

My bad, I was rather miffed about it back then and thought I wasn't revealing too much but letting people know what to look forward to.

I will begin my second viewing in a week or so and I'm hoping that much like it did with Prometheus it will reveal some bits that I missed the first time or perhaps some scrap of hope of what to look forward to in the future. Unfortunately for now though I will continue to wallow~

Bit of a Spoiler there Jen we have to remember others have yet to see the movie yet.

As far as this Topic... some good replied i wished i replied to... maybe i can but it will be hard as i have seen the movie, so its hard to do this in past-tense.

so i wont cover some stuff yet...

But as far as Shaw being infected and knowing what is to come, again i think its shown she must have survived any ill effects at least 6 Months after Prometheus due to her Hair Growth and she looks not well due to most likely lack of enough nutrition from limited liquids and food.  Rather than the Black Goo.

When she goes into Cryo-sleep i have the feeling that it seemed she genuinely thinks she would make it to Paradise, so she is not aware she is very ill... if indeed she is.

As far the Prologue and David, well the movie explains his intentions... thats all i am saying.  As i dont think we should be doing spoilers in this post...

But sure its fine in a New Topics labeled as Spoilers.
