The discovery is alarming to both K and his superior at the LAPD, Lieutenant Joshi ( Robin Wright), for it was previously inconceivable that a female replicant could procreate.
K is ordered by Joshi to destroy all evidence related to the case and to elimintate "the child".
Unlike older V-K testing, the new system is rather crude and impersonal.
Excerpts from Vladimir Nabokov's Pale Fire are heavily utilized; the quotes from the novel were selected by K himself for use in the examination.
Ultimately, K is able to fend of Sapper and, returning to the kitchen area, get a hold of his gun.
At gunpoint, Sapper reveals that K is in fact a replicant ( a Nexus-9 Replicant model though not explicitly mentioned) and that he "has never seen a miracle" moments before K fires twice, killing him.
Many older model replicants -- Nexus 8's with open-ended lifespans -- survived. Officer K, a Nexus-9 Rplicant model, works as a "Blade Runner" for the LAPD, hunting down and "retiring" outdated Nexus-8 Model replicants with open-ended lifespans rushed into production by the Tyrell Corporation in 2020 following the death of it's founder, Dr. K lives with his Wallace designed and produced "Joi", who keeps him company in his apartment as a holographic projection.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new Blade Runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos.
K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard, a former LAPD Blade Runner who has been missing for 30 years.
Back at the LAPD Headquarters, forensic analysis initially reveal that the contents inside the box, a complete skeleton and a lock of hair, belong to a female who died as the result of complications from an emergency caesarian section.
Upon closer inspection, K discovers a serial number on inscripted on the bone.
