Hey all :)


What is everyones take on what happened to Shaw? The pictures Daniel's was looking through seemed that David had carried out experiments on her, so did she birth the eggs? is Shaws DNA part of the Xenopmorph? and where David get the Facehugger embryo's from that he put into storage on the Convenant at the end, sorry more than one question there! went down the hole without realising.

or alien eggs...

Some of those drawings that David had done looked very disturbing, wonder if he kept her alive for a bit during the experiments? maybe she died in egg birth.

Maybe those drawing were early cloned experiments. Burying the bodies under tombstone. The one on the table was his latest clone, each one different as he ha been experimenting.


then again he doesnt seem to have the necessary equipment in that prehistoric lab

Is there an agenda the mods are not telling us about? ;)

Looking at the Movie and the pictures Daniels was going through as far as what parts of these images we could see.

1) David infects her Black Goo maybe, or someway he creates a Face Hugger related Organism... and this then implants a Embryo inside Shaw.  David removes this..

2) He then infects her with the Spores so she then has a Throat Burster like Hallet.

3) Finally he removed her Reproductive Organs to experiment on her Eggs.

This is what the Body of Shaw, and Two Pictures of her seem to indicate to me.

Clones would certainly add up to why there are Human Baby Skulls and the other Concept Work for Shaw... But we see no way David could do this... but then how does he even conduct half the experiments he does with Tools that are from the 18th Century etc.

The Source i had who claimed to have knowledge of Prometheus 2 from 2014, said Shaw was attached to a Bio-Mechanical like Device, Cruciform like the Superman 3 Robot Girl Meets HR Giger.

They claimed there was like Pods like from the Matrix where Humanoid Babies where being Grown...

If this information was correct... this means Paradise at that Draft had very HR Giger/Bio-Mechanical Technololgy like we see with the LV-223 Engineers, that are used to Create Clones.

This could certainly had been Awesome if Technology like this was shown... i think with Alien Covenant.. Logan and Harper and Ridley Scott dropped the Ball on this.

What happened to Shaw is obviously shown near the end of the film.

But that facehugger-embryo-vomit scene makes me giggle.

Does that mean David is now a Xeno-Queen, then when i remember right only queens can produce eggs.

And what David spat out was some form of egg in an early development state.

Idk seems ridiclious, but we have probably go now this way if this is supposed to be canon.

She died because they didn't want to continue the story fully, so they made it obvious (from their point of view) that she died somehow and David screwed around with her body.

 Then they displayed her in ways that reference Giger artwork to make us look and be amazed.

They may or may not continue her story based on all the reviews and such, and just leave it ambiguous. Thats my opinion.

I'm pretty sure David coughing up the facehugger embryos is just meant to imply he stowed them away inside him, not that he produced them like a queen.


MemberOvomorphJun-02-2017 10:54 AM

@Gralen David just swallowed those to get them them on the ship I think. Maybe they originated from Shaw? I also think he managed to somehow create the eggs (more like incubators) but eggs without embryos, maybe that is where Shaw came in. Also think there is a kind of vegetative look to the eggs, it was very wet and humid like when Kane found the original's.

Talking of clones, I do think the 223 Engineers are clones. Would have been great to see the technology if the case.


MemberOvomorphJun-02-2017 10:57 PM

I like to think that she was alive and conscious when David forced those eggs into her stomach... and felt all the pain when he started dissecting/experimenting on her. Makes David seem all the more sick.


MemberOvomorphJun-03-2017 3:20 AM

He is definitely sick :)

She dies in the engineer sleep chamber succumbing to pathogen infected Holloway sperm thus developing an egg before death. Then David experiments with her and that egg all while going nuts. These are just props that have been included as Easter eggs. 


MemberOvomorphJun-03-2017 3:58 AM

David said he kept her alive for a bit until necessity took over, so don't know if she died or he killed her in the name of science, does make sense about Holloway. I did think Shaw planted the corn?
