'In this video I wanna talk about one crazy easter egg in Alien Covenant that can change everything about the story.'
'If you slow down the video, you can actually notice Shaw’s face. and for some reason, her month is open and the head positioned in a very weird manner. In fact, the image in the transmission is extremely similar to what is left from Shaw’s head in David’s lab.'
My opinion: It's not similar, but the same!
Well this was clear from the 13th of may when I saw the movie, even though I did not notice the hologram peculiarities.
Interesting and plausible. It may have played out differently if they would have listened to Daniels and stay on course. Then David would have been stuck. Thanks for sharing- I didn't notice these subtleties before. Question- can we go by what is in deleted scenes? If so, that brings up frustration of cutting material for time's sake in the first place.
I didn't watch the video yet as I'm at work, but is this saying that David made "Shaw's" transmission after she died, like a puppet so that she looked alive?
drucea - Exactly. I made two stills from the video, in the first one you can see Shaw with her mouth open, the second one shows her as she is seen vivisected in the movie.
These stills are from the movie, of course, they are in the space scene when T receives the transmission in his helmet.
Look at the mouth and the nose in these stills. I think it is obvious that the we see the vivisected body's head in the transmission in the helmet scene when T is shown in space.

Still from the helmet scene:
Ati - I'd say that's dead on for a match. The transmission in T's helmet has Shaw's head tilted back and her eye's closed. The first in-helmet image you posted is pretty creepy looking, look's like her mouth is wide open, but still has closed or dark eye sockets. Great catch. I wonder if they will do more viral videos from David prior to releasing the next installment. Maybe this time David will explain/flashback to more of "The Crossing" video and go into Shaw's transmission.
drucea - Yes! I know it was discussed in a previous thread that the scene in question reveals Shaw's face in the helmet, but we thought that the image in the helmet had been taken from the record seen in the pilot room. The new thing is that we were wrong.
The images I added show Shaw in David's lab.
