We really don't have the elements to make any conclusions.
We don't know if the planet is really Paradise.
We know almost nothing about engineers. Race in decline? Secluded sect? Fallen angels? Terraformists?...
Who are the gods? The engineers ? The Hall Of Heads represents gods??
We don't know why David does this!
We don't know what happened to Shaw.
Too early to see where Scott wants to go!
I just think that franchise takes a great direction
Prometheus opened a new door for the Alien universe, and Covenant will extend it.
And if a script is already written for the sequel, then there must be a lot of things to develop!
