Scene 42

  • Ripley prepares to enter hypersleep with Jonesy.
  • Just then, the alien's hand moves, revealing the creature in the shuttle. Ripley runs and hides among the spacesuits and slowly slips into one.
  • Secure in the suit, she straps herself into a seat and uses the keyboard to blast the alien with gas from the pips.
  • The alien comes out spoiling for a fight, but Ripley opens the door. As the creature is blown toward space, it manages to grip the door frame. This thing does not want to die.
  • Ripley hits it with a harpoon gun sending it into the space. When the creature tries to crawl back into the ship through the engines, Ripley hits the throttle and finishes it off.
