Blade Runner 2049 fan theories in this episode

Blade Runner 2049 Theory - No. 1
[2:45] Memory girl tricked the replicants into thinking she's the chosen one
This Blade Runner 2049 theory takes a very alternative view of the new Blade Runner movie, arguing that the Memory Girl tricks the replicants into thinking she is actually the chosen one. Is the Memory Girl the replicant messiah or should this Blade Runner 2049 theory be retired early?

Blade Runner 2049 Theory - No. 2
[10:30] Is Rachael Human?
This Blade Runner 2049 theory plays on one of the most famous theories from the original Blade Runner movie, the theory that Deckard is a replicant. This Bladerunner 2049 Theory turns that theory around posing the theory that instead of a human being a replicant...what if a replicant was actually a human?
This Bladerunner 2049 argues that Rachael might actually be human and that the Voight Kampff test performed in the first Bladerunner film may not have been as effective as Deckard believes it is.

Blade Runner 2049 Theory - No. 3
[19:28] Is Deckard a Replicant?
As mentioned in the last Theory, this Bladerunner theory is probably the oldest and most well-known one. There's no need to introduce this theory, as everyone knows the Bladerunner theory that Deckard is actually a replicant.

Blade Runner 2049 Theory - No. 4
[25:07] Is Blade Runner pro-Trump?
Is Blade Runner 2049 secretly a subversive message designed to inspire people to want to build a giant wall on the Mexican border?
