The penetrating part I can totally imagine happening, the slicing part not so much.

Quote from: Building Better Worlds on Jun 28, 2022, 09:43:38 AMI've always thought of the tail penetrating her and slicing her in two vertically. Her weird groans over the intercom always conjure up the idea of her being diced to me.

But that quantifiably isn't what happens in the film.

I don't get people's obsession - Tristan Jones included - with something overly gory happening to her. It's supposed to be horrible, yes, but the preoccupation with being split open is a bit odd.

There's just something very appealing about someone's belly being cut open

The 'coconut treatment' could be the reason for the blood-stained legs.

Everyone else that was killed by it (except Kane, and Dallas was taken alive) received it. No reason to think she didn't get the same - after it did what it did to her.

Personally it doesn't seem like it fits the Alien Profile to rape a human, I mean I'm not an alien but it's like a reptile or insect raping a person with it's tail. Seems very very unlikely. Maybe Big Chap just so happens to be the only Alien that's ever done that or ever will but my money is just on it being happenstance, it just appears to look that way.

It fits with the themes of violation in the first film, although I'm of the opinion it's more of a sadistic curiosity, like a kid pulling legs off a bug, than what humans would consider rape, in its intent.

That makes sense. Xenomorphs are extremely intelligent, they are instinctually driven to some extent but a creature that goes from knowing nothing to being able to strategize and understanding our technology enough to cut the power out in span of a few weeks is very impressive, it makes me wonder what they could accomplish if given time to live long enough?

I always thought they were smart enough to do those kind of things.

If you're replying to BB, they are, and he was saying he's impressed that something days or weeks old can figure out that kind of cause and effect.

I agree. I think Big Chap was more into tormenting Lambart, he knew she was afraid and taunts her when Parker tries to interfere. I think Chap played with her, feeding on her fear till it ended her life. Whither it used its tail as prob, that is  is possible, we see the Second Xeno in Alien Covenant stick its tail up the lady in the shower's behind.

I like that interpretation. Big chap sensing fear and despair is not far fetched, and wanting to toy with his prey neither.
