It's body is knocked back a few feet, stopping right in front of -- Grid and a pack of Aliens. The sled begins to move as Lex and Scar leap on to it. Even with the weight of Scar and Lex, the sled is still much lighter than when loaded with equipment. The result -- instead of a slow, steady rise to the surface, the sled takes off like an Express Elevator out of Hell.
It literally snatches Scar and Lex from the clutches of Grid who rushes the sled. A quick cut to the Sacrificial Chamber and we see the wrist computer bomb, the final seconds of the bomb tick away. Ignition, the screen whites out and then an enormous explosion. From outside the pyramid we see hundreds of pin holes of light. Then the entire upper portion of the pyramid blasts outward.
The remaining Aliens scramble, but it's futile as they are consumed. In the tunnel, the speed with which Scar and Lex ascend is incredible. The breath is knocked out of them. Behind them a fireball is quickly closing in on them. The sled jettisons from the tunnel as a fiery mushroom of explosion erupts from the tunnel entrance. Scar and Lex are thrown clear.
Whaling Station: On the surface, the katabatic storm has blown itself out to be replaced by a heavy sea mist. The mist reduces visibility to no more than a hundred and fifty feet. The dark buildings of the whaling station loom menacingly out of the gloom. Scar and Lex get to their feet and run through the whaling station.
The massive fireball sweeps across the whaling station, setting buildings alight and throwing a rain of flaming debris into the night sky. A giant shockwave shudders through the snow, and then the ground begins to give way. The ice cave and Pyramid beneath Razorback Point have started to collapse, taking a huge chunk of the mountain range with it.
The mountain peak directly above the pyramid is sucked down into the bowels of the Earth. The collapse of Razorback Point is spreading outward, like ripples in a pond. It is starting to consume the whaling station. Building after building is sucked into the abyss. The drilling rigs, the base camp, are all quickly swallowed from view.
The snow and ice at their feet starts to crack and give way. No matter how fast they run however, the cracks are already spreading ahead of them. Then the very ground beneath their feet begins to give way. Scar and Lex make one last desperate jump as the earth literally disappears beneath them. Lex rolls over to see -- She and Scar are on the very edge of a giant crater.
At the edge of the crater, huge chunks of ice stick into the air like shattered teeth. Apart from a handful of burning buildings, the entire whaling station is gone. All that remains are smashed timbers, the iced-over harbor and the Separator -- the giant vat for boiling whale blubber. It's hard to see the full expanse of the crater through the mist, but it's vast. Far below lie the wrecked timbers of the whaling station.
Scar stands beside Lex. Through the ordeal Lex managed to keep her Barb Tail spear and Alien shield. Lex is still dazed, and it takes a moment for her to realize what is happening.
Scar slowly removes his faceplate revealing his face. He lets out a savage growl. Lex is repulsed but holds it together. Scar pulls a trophy Alien finger from his belt.
He holds it, still dripping acid blood, right in front of her face. She nods. Lex tenses in pain, but makes no sound, as the Predator begins to "blood" her.
Burning the distinctive Predator warrior scar into Lex's forehead with the acid blood of a dead Alien. She has earned the mark of a warrior. The two look at each other, he gives her a silent nod of respect.
Suddenly behind them, the Alien Queen bursts from the ground ice. None of her brood have survived, but the mother lives, and she's out for blood. Lex and Scar are showered with chunks of ice and snow.
Scar reacts with lightning speed, cocking his wrist gaurd and firing two sharp blades into the Queen's neck. A second later he flings the last of his throwing discs at the Queen. The disc cuts through her throat, opening a gaping wound.
He catches the disc and throws again. Chopping a chunk of the Queen's crown off. Scar reaches out to catch the disc, but at the last second -- the Alien Queen's tail whips around, smashing into Scar, flinging him into the remnants of a wooden structure. Scar survives the impact and falls to the ground. He tries to rise, but a further blow from the Queen's tail drives him back to the ground.
The Alien Queen closes in on Scar to finish him off. Her tail hovers above Scar's prone body, ready for the killer blow. Lex charges the Queen, driving the tip of her Alien spear into the Queen's neck. Into the very wound that Scar had opened with his throwing disc. The Queen screams in pain as Lex twists the blade, opening the wound still further.
Lex is showered with acid blood, but it rolls off her shield fashioned from an Alien head. The Queen whips suddenly to one side. Lex keeps a hold of her spear for a moment, and is lifted off the ground. But her grip can't hold and Lex is flung away. She lands hard, losing her shield. The Queen struggles furiously with the spear still embedded in her neck.
In her frenzy, the Queen loses balance, crashing into a still burning building. Lex removes her harness, which is quickly dissolving from the acid blood. The Queen rises from the flames. Finally the Queen pulls the spear loose, furious and ready for vengeance. Lex shelters behind the giant skeleton of a whale. Around her a striking landscape of bleached whalebones loom from the thick mist.
The Queen is moving through the mist, on the hunt for Lex. The sound of her giant footsteps echo all around. It's creepy as hell. The Queen's footsteps are getting closer. Without warning, the Queen is now looming right above Lex. Lex running frantically, but the Queen is right behind her. Lex sprints the length of a whale's skeleton, the bones curving around her like a giant cage.
The Queen is seconds behind her, crashing through the giant bones, sending them flying like toothpicks. The Queen is right on top of Lex, her jaws snapping. Lex dives underneath the only shelter she can find - the Separator. It sits on the edge of the steep cliffs overlooking the harbor. A giant metal vat, the Separator is held aloft by a complex web of metal and wood supports.
The Queen impacts with the structure, almost ripping it from the ground. The Separator teeters on the edge of the harbor, threatening to topple any second into the pack ice far below. The Alien Queen starts smashing through the remaining supports using her claws and tail. Lex is narrowly avoiding the tail smashing in and out of the Separator.
The Alien Queen smashes another support beam, weakening the Separator still more. Now hopelessly overbalanced, the Separator begins to tip over, sliding further and further over the cliffs. And the further it slides, the more it exposes Lex to the Queen. Lex is left defenseless and without shelter. The Queen rears up, ready to strike. Lex is dead for sure.
Flying through the air in a giant Predator leap, Scar drives his spear clean through the side of the Queen's head and lands in the snow beside Lex in full Samurai pose. Ready for battle. The Queen howls in pain, and for a moment, she is too distracted to fight any further. Lex sees that many of the restraints that had held the Alien Queen prisoner are still attached to her body.
Lex grabs one of the long chains still attached to the Alien Queen and attempts to hook it onto the Separator - still teetering on the edge of the cliffs. Her plan is clear. The Separator will fall at any moment, dragging the Queen with it into the harbor.
She attemps to wrap the chain around a large valve on the Separator, but there is not enough slack and nearly not enough strength to pull the massive Alien Queen closer. The Predator appears beside Lex, helping her pull the chain and hook it onto the Separator. For a glorious moment he and Lex work side-by-side.
But suddenly Scar convulses as the tail of the Alien Queen punches clean through his chest. He is hoisted off the ground, the vengeful Queen looming above him. The final remaining leg of the Separator finally gives way and the Separator tumbles but freezes, lodged in the rock, keeping it from going over the cliff. Lex grabs a shovel to used as leverage to pry loose a bolt from the Separator's support base.
The Alien Queen is about to deliver the fatal piercing into Scar with it's inner jaw, when the bolt finally breaks loose. The Separator tumbles over the cliff. The chain pulls tight and drags the Alien Queen with it. Scar is flung free from the Queen's tail. The Separator hits the harbor, punching a hole in the pack ice covering. The Alien Queen is dragged to the edge of the cliffs but mangages to hang on.
Lex is just a few feet away from the Queen. The Alien Queen makes one last lunge for Lex, like a dog on a chain. Her jaws come within an inch of Lex, who is backed up against the torn remnants of a building, with nowhere to run. The Queen strains at the end of her chain, her inner mouth shooting out, snapping right in front of Lex's face, threatening to tear it clean off.
The giant metal vat is sucked into the water below, pulling the Queen straining at the other end of her chain. The Queen finally loses her grip on the edge. Dragging the Alien Queen away from Lex, the Alien Queen screams in protest, but there is nothing she can do as she is dragged into the harbor by three tons of solid iron. The Alien Queen is dragged through the gaping hole made by the Separator.
Underwater, beneath the pack ice everything is silent. Ghostly. The Separator hurtles past the camera, like a giant anchor headed straight to the bottom. It is followed by the length of chain and then the Alien Queen. The Alien Queen is dragged down into the abyss. Eventually disappearing completely from view. Scar lies in the snow. A fallen warrior. Bloodied and broken, but dying with honor. And then Scar dies.
Suddenly the Predator spacecraft uncloaks near the remnants of the whaling station. On a low rise overlooking the battleground stand several Predator Elders. They had seen everything. Four Predators pick up Scar's body and carry him toward a long ramp leading up to the belly of the spacecraft. Lex stares at the group of Predators. There is a tense standoff.
A Predator Elder stares at the Human Woman. He sees the distinctive Predator war scar on her forehead. The same scar that he and all the others wear. As the rest of the Predators file back onto the Spacecraft, the Predator Elder hands Lex his Spear. The gesture has the feeling of ancient ceremony about it. The message is clear. Lex has become a hunter. Lex takes the spear. And the Predator Elder turns back to the Spaceship.
As he turns, the main thrusters of the Predator Craft are starting to fire up. Lex, holding the warrior's spear and marked with the Predator warrior scar, Lex has never looked more formidable. She seems more Predator than Human. She watches the Spacecraft as it rises into the heavens. The Predator Spacecraft heads away from Earth.
In the Predator ship, Scar's dead body has been laid to rest in a place of honor. Scar's faceplate is off, displaying the Predator warrior scar. He died a warrior's death. Some kind of religious ceremony has just finished. The last of the Predator Elders is filing out of the room. Scar's body is left alone in the silent chamber.
Scar's chest begins to convulse. Tearing its way out of Scar's dead body is an Alien chest burster. The Alien that develops inside a Predator is bigger and more frightening than anything we've ever seen. A hybrid between Alien and Predator. An unstoppable killing machine. The Alien/Predator hybrid as it bursts free is covered in Predator blood. Razor sharp teeth catching the light.
