the fight with the clone blew my expectations out of the water, because it wasnt really a fight at all. ursula digs up sam and the clone immediately sprints to her and pushes her out of the way just to bury sam again and then go back to what it was doing because thats what its designed to do. its meant to blend in with the group and act as they do before reproducing, its not trying to fight or eat, it just wants to reproduce.

Funny thing, it actually WAS shown eating, but as you said, its job is to blend in, so the only reason it even went near the food was simply because it had been watching them. This is honestly one of my favorite horror tropes - when something is exhibiting human behavior but doing so in a way that clearly lacks the intent/thought process behind said behavior because it's trying to mimic it with no understanding of it.

1. Plant pod tentacles extract blood sample from a passing victim while administering a dose of poison 2. creates a clone of victim, inside the clone is a seed of the plant pod 3. The clone tracks the victim down, buries the sickened victim 4. The clone infiltrates the victim's group, detonates itself in an acidic explosion 5. The dead from the explosion becomes fertilizer in which a new pod forest blooms.

​@@slomnim Parasitism IS a kind of symbiotic relationship, alot of people dont know that at first because it is discussed in greater detail in higher Biology levels, its quite fascinating how this planet's biosphere works, This Pod tree for example seems to employs a mimicry tactic in order to reproduce, taking genetic samples from specie that travel below its canopy, the more social the species are (herdlike) the greater successfulness of the doppelganger "fruit" it produces is able in spreading tis genes. In order to more successful integrate the doppelganger "fruit" into its group, it poisons the target organism in order to allow the doppelganger to reintegrate though this does not seem to kill the organism which is why the fruit goes as far as to bury the original. I can imagine that the genetic sample taken from the target organism is to not only create a convincing doppelganger but also as a method to horizontally integrate genes into itself allowing it to have a greater genetic variety, it also may allow it to create more effective enzymes in order to kill its hosts once the doppelganger bursts. Since it appears that a whole forest of these Pod trees can be generated from one event, it can possibly be concluded that each "tree" is genetically distinct due to horizontal gene transfer, the corrosive fluid released by the doppelganger being the "seeds" that integrate the dying host organism's genome into its own, a truly magnificent and creative concept of parasitic reproduction, some parasitic plants here on earth do something similar.

So the pods gather blood from various different hosts (2:56 and 4:33), using it as nutrients for the creature that develops inside the pod (4:08). When the creatures die, their bodies start decomposing rapidly (5:32), and tree-like structures grow in their place, which bear more pods (5:42). A complicated and horrifying way of reproduction indeed! Also, the first pod gathered a blood sample from a human host, which i think is why the 6:01 creature at the end has a human-like body shape.
@ithrilzyne4542

I think the blood is gathered to use the DNA to create a sort of clone to infiltrate herds and nests. Once the original dies from the venom the clone takes its place and when it finds a place with high enough density it explodes in a shower of acid, dissolving the nearby creatures to act as nutrients for the seeds that are also scattered.

Makes me wonder what would prey on the pods, since their main source of spread would be migratory herd animals (like the pack of Lizard things) and they spread an awful lot. Something must eat them to keep them under control or slow their spread. It would have to be a carnivore, one resistant to the poison (so they can stab and clone it all they want it'll just keep trucking, or at least not die unless OD'd) and have tasty little meat snacks in convenient stationary pods.

@@aria5614Since they are primarily sessile organisms with the only moving part of them being the pod tentacles and the "fruit" (i like to call them doppelganger fruit) im certain some organisms are capable of feeding on them or the "fruit" it generates especially considering the fact that it can mimic prey animals which would be a strange kind of frugivory. The reason why these tree pods mimic herd or at least social organisms because it has greater potential to reproduce in that manner, in another comment I argue that it may even be the primary method of genetic diversity in it's species by integrating its genome with a sampled organism in order to not only more effectively mimic them but also to increase its own genetic profile through horizontal gene transfer doing so with each successful kill, which encourages the tactic that it uses, the bigger the population within a herd species, the greater the genetic variability from one "fruit" bursting.

​​@@aria5614they might be highly susceptible to pathogens. Given how much they just stab at random creatures it's possible they pick up absolutely bizarre parasites that use their pods as incubators, "spoiling" whole crops of doppelgangers. Really they'd be the wet dream of several multistage parasites on earth, I can barely imagine the nonsense that would evolve on that planet to take advantage of them.

Something I think about is when Ursula is fighting the simulacrum it has a rose colored upper torso and beige lower torso, imitating Sam's outfit. That's not something the pods could pick up from DNA. We also see one of the creatures in the pods with its eyes open which is atypical of a creature in a womb. I guess that means that the seed pods use the eyes the simulacra its growing to watch its "prey" to make the simulacrum look the part. This would have been over some distance which means the whole colony watches and plans. Creepy.

It is so fascinating to see the full reproductive cycle of an entirely alien species. We humans often think we are the first to do certain things, such as hydraulics. Then we learned of the jumping spider which uses its blood as hydraulic fluid. Here in this example, no matter when we learn to use cloning, this species of... I want to say plantlife had already learned how to use it. Again, nature is our teacher.

Even on Earth, with disease and real threats, people downplay it. From behaviors like ""I'm going to drink liters of alcohol and then drive, it's nothing." Psychological illnesses like "so-and-so the other day tried to slit his wrists, but it's nothing, he just wants to get attention." "All the doctors talk about a pandemic, but why am I going to wear a mask? I am strong, no epidemic will reach me." Denial behavior exists on Earth, and will probably exist among people in the future, wherever they are.

I just wonder why the clone even bothers to bury the corpse? Buried cloned carcasses do not serve as fertiliser and do not grow any parasitic fungi, as we saw when Ursula dug up a dead body in the cave. Burying the carcass so that other animals don't notice it doesn't make sense either, because the infected alien bull died far away from its herd. And even if they were inteligent to notice that their mate was missing, they would also be smart enough to notice that the imitating clone was an impostor, so they need to get away from it as fast and as far as possible before it bursts into lethal cloud of spores.

Note that the plant was able to imitate a human. Something tells me this plant has needed to thrive with relatively smarter prey some creatures can recognize others by maybe scent? I imagine a duplicate appearing when the real one is close enough for the others to smell if it's not buried may result in the clone getting throttled considering the whole biome is full of parasitic threats this also doesn't take into account the creature being resistant to toxins and it's designed specifically to only approach once it sees "itself" ready to be buried. I imagine it's some messed up cross between a cordyceps fungi and a cuckoo bird. Thank God it didn't learn how to just pull a suicide bomber tactic instead cause the effectiveness of the propagating spores was wild.

@@w47765Probably a suicide bomber strategy would be less effective in the long run, as over a long enough period of time animal would learn to recognize the acid pod on legs like a predator and run. but since they don't have a uniform look the targeted creatures can't adapt as well. Maybe it can find another herd if its intended herd rejects it.

The alien pods remind me of plant reproduction on our planet taken to extremes. The pods might be sporophytes that use specialized spore capsules to absorb genetic information from a moving organism (like that poor froggy-looking fellow at the end). Horizontal gene transfer may then ensue, causing the gametophyte to be molded in the shape of the organism it absorbed from. The gametophyte then wanders to a place where its progeny can grow, possibly guided by the scent of its dying victim, and bursts, spilling gametes and digestive enzymes/acid to aide in the gametes' growth. My understanding of biology is quite limited, due to my lack of formal education, but yeah.
