Replicants are bioengineered humans, designed

by Tyrell Corporation for use off-world.

Their enhanced strength

made them ideal slave labor

After a series of violent rebellions, their manufacture

became prohibited and Tyrell Corp went bankrupt.

The collapse of ecosystems in the mid 2020s

led to the rise of industrialist Niander Wallace,

Whose mastery of synthetic

farming averted famine

Wallace acquired the remains of Tyrell Corp

and created a new line of replicants who obey.

Many older model replicants--NEXUS 8s with open-ended

lifespans--survived. They are hunted down and "Retired"

Those that hunt them

still go by the name...

Blade Runner

I hope you dont mind me

taking the liberty.

I was careful not to...

drag in any dirt.

I dont mind the dirt.

I do mind...

unannounced visits.

You police?

Are you Sapper Morton,

Civic Number:

I'm a farmer.

I saw that.

What do you farm?

It's a protein farm...

Wallace design.

Is that what I smell?

I grow that just for me.

- Garlic.

- Garlic...

You wanna try some.

No, thank you.

I prefer to keep an empty stomach

until the hard part of the day is done.

How long you been here?

Since 2020.

But you haven't always

been a farmer, have you?

Your bag...

It's Colonial Medical use,

Military issue.

Where were you? Calantha?

Must've been brutal.

Plan on taking me in?


take a look inside.

Mr. Morton,

if taking you in is an option...

I would much prefer that

to the alternative.

I'm sure you knew,

it would be someone, in time.

I'm sorry it had to be me.

Good as any.


if you don't mind,

if you could just look up

and to the left, please.

Please don't get up.

How does it feel

killing your own kind?

I don't retire my own kind,

because we don't run.

Only you older models do.

And you new models are happy

just cleaning the sh*t.

Because you have

never seen a miracle.

Just photograph everything.

Madam, please.

Incoming LAPD recoded cache.

Youre hurt.

I'm not paying for that.

- I'll glue it.

- And?...

One of the tail-end Nexus 8s.

- He looks like he could take

your head off. - He tried.

He went AWOL after Calantha.

With a few more in his outfit,

I wouldn't mind closing out.

- Just him?

- Just him.

Come on home for your baseline.

One moment, Madam.

30 meters to maximum depth.

What is that?

I'll send a dig-team.

Come before the storm.



Officer KD6-3.7, let's begin.

- Ready?

- Yessir.

Reset your baseline.

And blood-black

nothingness began to spin

A system of cells

interlinked within cells,

interlinked within cells,

interlinked within one stem.

F*** off, skin-job!

And dreadfully distinct against

the dark, a tall white fountain played...

- Cells.

- Cells.

Have you ever

been in an institution?

- Cells.

- Cells.

Do they keep you in a cell?

- Cells.

- Cells.

When you're not performing your duties,

do they keep you in a little box?

- Cells.

- Cells.


- Interlinked.

What's it like to hold the

hand of someone you love?

- Interlinked.

- Interlinked.

Did they teach you how to

feel, finger to finger?

- Interlinked.

- Interlinked.

Do you long for having

your heart interlinked?

- Interlinked.

- Interlinked.

Do you dream about

being interlinked?


What's it like to hold

your child in your arms?


- Interlinked.

Do you feel that there's a

part of you that's missing ?

- Interlinked.

- Interlinked.

- Within cells interlinked.

- Within cells interlinked.

Why don't you say that three times:

"within cells interlinked".

Within cells interlinked.
