How I Think Alien Resurrection Should Have Ended

I’m not crazy about Alien Resurrection, but I hate Alien3 more. This is what I think should’ve happened at the end of the movie. Let’s take out that stupid Newborn thing, that was an abomination. This is what I had in mind.

Ripley #8 is taken by the Aliens into the nest. She awakens to see herself surrounded by Aliens and the Queen at her egg sack. She also finds Dr. Gediman strapped to the wall. But the Aliens don’t attack, they just stand there. One Alien gets close to her and rubs its head against her forehead. Gediman explains that since she carries their blood they consider her one of them. Ripley starts to pet one of them like it were a dog. It extends its tongue, she grabs it and rips it out saying that she is not one of them, that she chooses to hold onto her humanity. The Aliens begin to attack, when she pulls out a grenade and presses the button, if she lets go they all go up. She backs away, walks over to Gediman, puts it in his hand telling him “don’t let go”, and she takes off running. Then Gediman lets go of the grenade and it explodes. The Queen gets pissed and escapes.

Ripley makes it to the Betty, but she couldn’t close the hatch, she tells them that she couldn’t close the hatch so Call goes back to close, only to run into the Queen. I know, it’s been done, but it sure is better than the Newborn. The Queen closes the hatch and tries to kill Call. When Distephano comes in and the Queen bites his head off, which a Queen has never done before in the Alien franchise. As the Betty flies into the atmosphere, the Queen is about to kill Call, when Ripley arrives, the Queen is hypnotized by her, because Ripley gave birth to her. Then Ripley does the thing where she burns a hole in the window and the Queen gets sucked out.

I think I would’ve been cooler. I like the idea that Ripley chooses between her instincts and her humanity.
