Aloe vera sprouting something strange

Aloe vera    Argentina

I live in Buenos Aires and I have a couple of Aloe veras on my balcony. I care for them appropriately but one of them has sprouted something strange!
I have not found any information on the web about this specifically.
I am mostly interested out of curiosity, I love studying plants and I have never seen anything like this.

I think it may be sending up a flower spike.

Sorry Charlie, just noticed your comment - I think you might be right

My best guess is that it is a flower stalk beginning to grow but I have never seen it happen first hand so I'm not sure. Have any of them flowered before? Some of the protrusions do look like parts of the flower
