Howdy Hicks! I guess traffic is a little slow with the holidays, but I had a listen to Podcast 31. I think you, Ridgetop and Xenomorphine did a fine job covering the salient points. As is the case with Prometheus, I want to be optimistic about Covenant. I want it to be a great movie, and a great Alien movie. But because of Prometheus, I'm waiting to see. It wouldn't surprise me at all to find out David 8 created the Xenomorph as we know it, any more than it would surprise me to learn that Shaw is actually the space jockey on the derelict on LV-426. Unfortunately, these sorts of cheap, easy answers tie everything up into a nice, neat package with a big red bow on top. And that seems to be the goal of all this.
