I've heard from a few corners - and seen the scene in question - that the Alien violated Lambert with its tail before killing her. Anyone seen the scene in question? I think it's a deleted scene, but don't hold me to that, I've not seen Alien in a while now. It does look like it does.. and with all the references to impregnation and birthing and Geiger's suggestive, sexual imagery, it's not beyond the realms of possibility. What do you think?Captain deathbeard 12:25, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
- "Remember when Yaphet Kotto (J.T. Parker) got killed? I was supposed to sneak along the wall and get into the locker-the same one the cat was in earlier. The Alien is supposed to track me down with his sensory things and ‘’I die of fright’’. Well, that’s what they told me but the next thing I knew, I was hanging from a meat hook. All I can assume is: I got raped by the Alien." (Veronica Cartwright talks about Lambert’s demise, from Starlog number 81, April 1984)
The novelization also hints at nasty stuff going down in the food locker:
"Parker looked back into the locker, went a little crazy when he saw what the alien was doing."-Alien novelization.
After killing Parker, the alien turns its attention back to Lambert, whose screams are overheard by Ripley. This leads to the cutscene where Ripley finds Dallas and Brett cocooned. I can’t recall the source right now, but I think the original alien was supposed to have a poison tipped tail. My theory?: At the very least, the alien paralyzed Lambert (with fear/poison tail), prepping her to be cocooned like Dallas and Brett. What’s great about that scene is the ambiguity, it’s the equivalent of the chainsaw-to-the-face scene in "Scarface"!---CadmiumX99 19:04, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
- Very interesting, never read that quote before. And agreed, I love it when things are left open to interpretation.Captain deathbeard 09:21, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
