WARNING: Spoilers for ‘Alien: Covenant’ ahead! Head to the next article if you don’t want to know what happens in the film!
With all of the new clips and footage being released from ‘Alien: Covenant,’ a lot of people are asking where exactly is Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw. Last seen in ‘Prometheus’ aboard the Juggernaut with David the android on their way to the Engineer homeworld, many fans surmised something must have happened to her along the way, especially when the clip of David the android (with a full body once again) landing the ship on the Engineer homeworld and unleashing the black goo bombs to slaughter the Engineer race surfaced last week and did not include Shaw. now we might have some hints as to what happened to her.
It has been rumored for some time that David will be the villain for ‘Alien: Covenant,’ having stayed on the Engineer homeworld and experimenting on the black goo and the Xenomorphs. According to a new TV Spot, his experiments may have been with Shaw herself, who appears in holographic image form with her arms splayed out to her sides and with her wrists bound to some unclear device behind her, potentially the first subject of David’s experiments. As Comicbook points out, since ‘Prometheus’ was full of religious imagery, there is a good chance Shaw’s pose is meant to evoke religious meaning, being similar to Jesus on the cross, but what it means in the scheme of the film we will have to wait and see.
Check out the new TV spot, titled, ‘Take Me Home’ below to see the brief shot of Shaw, and feel free to share your thoughts on ‘Covenant’ and what could be going on in the comments section below!
Director Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
