We’ve known for a while that Noomi Rapace was likely to return in some capacity in her Prometheus role of Elizabeth Shaw for Alien: Covenant. However, we just didn’t know how she would be back. Until now.

Last night, 20th Century Fox released a new promo for Ridley Scott’s new Alien movie. While the 40-second promo didn’t reveal anything new (it’s the same footage seen in the trailers), a backward hashtag, #EMOHEMEKAT — which reads “take me home” when turned around — appeared at the end of the TV spot.

Looking it up on Instagram, it unveils a longer trailer that teases the return of Elizabeth Shaw, and from this extended version of the promo, it looks like Noomi Rapace’s character could make her return as a hologram. Which ... yeah. Makes sense since David (Michael Fassbender) is found alone on that planet.

The scene reveals the crew of the Covenant making their way inside the Juggernaut, the ship used by Shaw and a body-less David to reach the Engineers’ home world at the end of Prometheus, and finding Shaw’s dog tags before discovering the disturbing hologram which hints at Shaw's fate. Check it out:

Alien: Covenant will burst into movie theaters on May 19.
