  • Ripley uses an elevator to go down many floors and reach the alien hive. She sees no aliens around and drops flares to find her way back to the elevator. In a deleted scene, she catches up with a cocooned Burke who tells her to kill him. She finds Newt’s tracker device and suspects that she has been killed. Just then, Newt, now trapped in alien resin, sees an Alien Egg open and Ripley hears Newt’s cries for help nearby. Ripley kills the Facehugger and frees Newt. They are about to escape when they enter another section where they find lots of alien eggs and an Alien Queen laying the eggs. Some xenomorphs were about to attack Ripley and Newt but the Queen directs them to back off when it realises Ripley is threatening to destroy the alien eggs with her flamethrower. Ripley backs away and destroys the alien eggs, the xenomorphs and fires grenades into the Queen Alien’s egg sack. The Queen tore free from the egg sack and chased after Ripley and Newt.

  • Waking up from a cryogenic sleep 57 years after the destruction of her crew and ship thanks to the series’ titular creature, Ripley faces a world where her authority is no longer respected and where, despite not having aged a day since she first entered her sleeping chamber, her once 11-year-old daughter continued to live on to the end of her life, without a mother. With no family and no crew, Ripley’s role as caretaker is usurped from her, and, like an old spinster, she seemingly has nothing left, save for Jones, — the previous film’s cat and only other creature left alive Ripley can relate to.

    The film, which is set 200 years after the preceding installment Alien 3, Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is cloned and an Alien queen is surgically removed from her body. The United Systems Military hopes to breed Aliens to study and research on the spaceship USM Auriga, using human hosts kidnapped and delivered to them by a group of mercenaries. The Aliens escape their enclosures, while Ripley and the mercenaries attempt to escape and destroy the Auriga before it reaches its destination, Earth. Ripley is taken to the Alien nest, where the Queen gives birth to a Newborn, a Xenomorph with human traits. The hybrid Alien recognizes Ripley as its mother and kills the queen Alien. Ripley finds her way onto the ship and manages to push the Newborn through a hole due to decompression. The survivors escape with another ship, "The Betty". The Auriga collides with Earth, causing a large explosion. Call and Ripley look down at Earth, and when Call asks what Ripley wants to do next, she says, "I'm a stranger here myself." In an alternate ending that is used in some extended adaptions, the Betty lands in a ruined Paris.

  • The conservative re-appropriation of the Ripley icon through the Alien franchise has been shaped in a multitude of ways. The most significant, though, lies in how Ripley and the monster are situated (always in relation to motherhood) to one another throughout the films. In Alien, the protagonist and the monster are depicted as polar opposites, linked solely by their shared statuses as lone survivors. The monstrous alien embodies the male gaze and represents destructive sexuality, while Ripley is established as a pillar of female liberation and legitimacy. The two formerly diametric characters become inextricably linked beginning in Aliens, as they share the primary motivation of protecting their “children.” This relationship becomes even more clearly illustrated in Alien3, as Ripley proves to be not only the one human in the prison that the monster won’t harm but also the object of protection by it as the mother of the future queen. In such a way, the trajectory of the franchise establishes a relationship between the alien and Ripley that revolves around them being kindred spirits rather than nemeses.
