Yes I think we are meant to infer the AI dog bite into the face hugger, and yes all sorts of plot holes from that notion, but hey 10 minute short, they nailed it, looking forward to the next one.

What plot holes? Like the fact the dog's entire face got dissolved?

In Aliens when Ripley is in the room with the weyland and higher up people she tells them what Kane explained after he got back to the ship, like he saw thousands of eggs in there and details he never said over the radio in the derelight ship, and also could remember he was in there and that he couldnt breath and somewhat memories.

Kane says there are loads of eggs before he is Facehugged, over the radio to Dallas and Lambert. The fact that got mistranslated as "thousands" in the sequel is the fault of the second film's script. As Old One says, Kane quite definitively states he has no idea what happened to him inside the derelict afterwards.

In ripley and purvis cases theyw ere asleep when the facehugger struck. In Aliens the surviving woman in the hive seemed to know very well what had happened to her, and then we have all the expanded universe.

I'll give you Ripley, but we see the captured colonists aren't in hypersleep when they're 'hugged in Resurrection. And the woman in Aliens knew bad shit was happening because she'd presumably seen Chestbursters rip out of others while stuck to the wall down there.

Still no one can explain why the acid is white, heck its not normal for xenomorphs to have white blood, different breed of xenomorph?

The acid isn't white. That's the android gloop from the dog.

The only acid we see is the stuff that melts the floor, and that's clear.

^ All that.

Plus there needs to be a law against people using 'plot hole' for things that aren't...

Android gloop?

;D

Any kin to Augustus?

Always assumed the Gloop family would get into the food industry, not synthetic puppy manufacturing.

The facehugger isn't dripping acid it's been injured by the dog.

I'm unfamiliar with the technical term :)

Me too. I just loved what you picked!  :)

I'm no expert but "synthetic blood" may be the technical term, probably? They have artificial, synthetic organs so it probably can be referred to as blood.

For the original Alien, it's suggesting a particular sexual white fluid.

As the Alien is &
The Alien and the Android are on the same page after all.
They are both enemies of the protagonist.

Mother's Milk

In all seriousness, that would be fitting, considering all the mother imagery in Alien.

Huh, androids being another representation of motherly imagery? I might get that.

Well, I was just thinking the milk blood... but okay!

Now all we need is an Android Queen....  ;)



I don't believe it's meant to invocate that particular white fluid, but the other one.

As the Alien.

Considering all the mother imagery in Alien. The eggs. The life moving inside. The umbilical chord like tail. The pregnancy and birth. The ovarian looking room with the MU-TH-UR terminal. The fact they call it "Mother".  The milk for blood.

It can be taken both ways I think.

Violation imagery, the safe turned unsafe.

Whilst the interior appearance is safe and warm-
MUTHUR betrays the protagonist and friends, after all.
