Close to the end of The Thing (2011), Kate Lloyd burns the snow vehicle (or did she blow it up, one of the two). After that we are left to our own devices on her fate. Was this intended for us to believe that she died out there from exposure, or was this supposed to be an opening left for another movie, or did this serve some other purpose?
I didn't think that Kate blew up the snowbile. I believe she torched her boyfriend and rode off. I assumed that she survived, and was not infected. The way the movie ended though with the helicopter pilot and Lars chasing down the infected dog, was interesting.
I only use infected here to refer to not being real and as being the thing. The movie was fun and worth many a watch.
If Kate supposedly survived the Thing's existence and even made it back to civilization or another Artic Camp for help, she would be able to warn others of her experience. If she died, then the chance for a sequel would be slim. Unless...and here is your possible sequel to the prequel of the original story: All that happened during the John Carpenter film took place before she could make her way back to civilization or for "Help", and the sequel can pick up at the end of the Carpenter film with teams arriving and finding Childs and Macready either frozen or waiting in the fire. Sorry for the Rantyness...
