    A model that advanced 230-something years before Call.

    Alllllright.

    Gives a whole new meaning to what all that milky white fluid in Ash and Bishop could be, doesn't it? :D

    I've also considered the idea of Shaw being a robot. The one person that we expect to be human turning out to be a robot would be a "Sixth Sense" type of shocker to many people. If she does give birth to something that takes on her traits, then maybe that's where the "mechanical" in our Bio-mechanical Xenos originate from. The mating of organic and robotic life forms.

    That would only be logical if artificial components, like metal and plastic, had DNA.

    They don't. :)

    I think I just swooned in my cubicle.

    Also, childhood flashbacks are one of the laziest plot devices out there. I hope Riddles does it right.

    True. I think - I hope - that this appears when she is in hypersleep. I suspect that shot of David in the yellow goggles is when he's accessing the sleeper's dreams (which would be a nice nod to Alan Dean Foster's novelizations) and he sees Shaw dreaming about her childhood.

    If she worked on set with Fassbender, maybe its because they were filming different scenes on the same day...

    Or maybe Shaw has a dream of David8 with her as a child in the dream.

    The TWIST could be...Shaw is the android, and her quest for the origins of life, the creator of life comes from some inherent programming. She may have memories of being a young girl and she dreams of said memories, but they aren't real, they're some one else's memories.

    An android heroine...that has so much potential.
    ...uh, if Shaw's an android, how the hell does she become infected and give birth via C-section to squid baby?

    You peeplz is gettin' crazy :P


    Getting??

    Too late   ::)

    I don't think the twist is the android idea...but some one we believe is absolutely the most human (Shaw?) discovering that they are not human. It's like the real boy discovering he's actually a Pinocchio. That's some heavy shit full of philosophical implications.

    Didn't all the androids in Blade runner lose their parents at young age and were implemented with fake memories and given old photos?

    Just question.
    They never had parents; they were artificial. Some collected photographs because they represent memories and personal history. Replicants like Rachael were given fake memories to fool her into thinking she was human. A form of control.

    That is what I am talking about the flashbacks might be jsut implemented memories, like the unicorn dream Deckard had. Otherwise why bother with childhood flashbacks?

    aw she's adorable!

    i kind of hope that "explains some of her motivations" doesn't mean Shaw loses her parents at a young age or something, because that would be cheesy as fuq

    You think she might travel through a wormhole and meet a hologram of her dad on a beach? Wasn't that in one of those bogus scripts... :-\
    wasn't there a movie with humanity building a sphere with instructions from aliens. then the pilot who was a woman and i can't remember the actress name gets to an alien planet sitting on the beach and she sees her father?
