In Alien covenant there is a fight between two synthetics after which David impersonates Walter and deceves Tanesse and Daniels. There are a few questions left unanswered, whether or nor not David killed Walter and how exactly David assumed Walter’s identity. There are two main theoris on this, David simply removed his hand and changed clothes or maybe David downloaded his conscioucness into Walter body. Although both of these theories may be plausible, there are a few blatant clues in the movie that make only one of these two logicaly possible. In this video I’m gonna talk about how David impersonated Walter and if Walter is still alive which may be totaly possible given some details about Alien Awakening.
Before we discuss if Walter is in fact dead, let’s figure out how David assumed is identity. We know that David poseses a level of strengh above human, so it wouldn’t be hard for him to remove his hand and get in Walter clothers. His hand apeared melted which wouldn’t be easy to do with a knife that David probably used to stab Walter. However there was a dead neomorph nearby and David could have used alien blood to melt off his hand. It doesn’t seem that David would have enough time to do it but in the original script of the film before boarding the cargo ship Daniels and lope spend quite a bit of time fighting the second xenomorph and this scenes wasn’t included in the film. So with that fact in mind David realistically could have enough time to beat Walter, remove his hand and get the new clothers. I think this is actually what happened and although a theory of downloading David’s consciousness into Walter is elegant and creative it strongly contradicts to the following clues.
We observed that Walter is able to self-regenerate after being stabed in a neck with a flute, however his hand doesn’t grow back suggesting that he can only heal himself from minor injuries.
When David gets on the Covenant ship he has a few scars on his face that don’t seem to heal and even after several hours when the mother wakes up the crew, the scars are still present on his face. If he downloaded his mind into Walter, his body would have an ability to regenrate and thus the scrars would disapear. He would also have Walter memories inclding the one about the cabin in the woods. But in the film David has no clue about it thus suggesting that it is in fact David in David’s body.
Now I think it’s pretty much obvious that Walter alive or dead was left on the Paradise planet. The look on David’s face when he leaves the temple suggests that he made something terrible that he might regret.
Honestly I knew that it was David from the moment when he responded to Lope on the cargo ship 'it's fine'. On the Covenant, the audinece gets a few
blatant clue that it is in fact David not Walter but suprisingly Daniels miss them al and thinks that it is Walter until the ending. I think it was done on purpose that
the audience knows more than Daniels and Tenesse to make viewers care more about the characters.
In the movie itself we don’t get any information on what actually happened to Walter after the fight with David, however from the recent interview with Ridley Scott we learn that in Alien Awakening, Engineers would visit the Paradise planet and discover that their creation were destroyed. I think it possible that there gonna find Walter maybe even talk to him. Most likely they are gonna blame him and we’ll probably see another android getting his head riped off. Just because its would be interesting if Engineers would find Walter on the Paradise, he might be alive. On the top of that in the Alien Covenant novel, it is explicitly stated that Walter is alive and that David purposely left him alone on the Paradise.
I know it's a little bit of a stretch but there is a theory that Walter will become the space jokey that we saw in the original Alien movie. Considering that Ridley Scott starts to focuse more on androids in alien franchise rather than aliens , this theory does not seem that terrible
However it is far more likely that David will be the space jokey by sacrificing him self to complete the design of a perfect organism similarly to the Engineer
sacrificed in Prometheus. That would create kinda of a circle of creation which the form of the Jugernaut sumbolizes.
It is also foreshadowed many times that David is perfect so in a way the original xenomorphs would not be perfect without some kind of David's involvment.
