Deleted Scene: Burke Cocooned (SD, 1:31): Carter Burke's fate revealed !
This is of course the legendary lost scene from Aliens, where Ripley in her search for Newt discovers Weyland-Yutani company man Carter Burke cocooned and incubating an unborn alien. Burke begs Ripley for help, who in turn hands him a grenade, and then moves on to find Newt...
For a long time, I thought this scene was created on set but not filmed - in terms of continuity the scene doesn't work (Burke simply could not have been inpregnated that fast!), but the presence of the sequence as a Deleted scene on the new BR suggests it was indeed shot.

I haven't got my hands on the Anthology yet but I'm really looking forward to seeing how this scene plays out. If anyone has seen it, let us know what you think !
