According to Lance Henriksen, he based the character of Bishop on his innocent 12-year-old self. He would sometimes get lost in the role during shooting and would leave the studio to wander around London where the movie was actually being filmed. ... ...

Before the marines' final stand in Operations, their motion trackers cannot tell if the aliens are on the same level. Therefore the aliens' ability to surprise and slaughter the marines hinges entirely on character error. Ripley references the earlier scene, in which they examined the floor plans, with the possibility that the aliens came in through something they missed or was not in the plans, that being the space above the suspended ceiling vents. By this time, the stress of the situation could have caused everyone to forget this, unlike the calmer floor plan scene.
As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
