The snakescale means that Zhora must have been in Leon's apartment and that raises the questions...

Are they partners or just helping eachother out ??

Maybe it's nothing but I came to think about it the other night

I always just assumed that Leon and Zhora were lovers, just like Batty and Pris were lovers.

Might explain why Leon is so pissed when Deckard kills her. Laughing

Then again maybe Zhora has a thing for taking showers everywhere she happens to go. Rolling Eyes

I'd think the scale would've gotten dislodged from the snake & stuck to her skin somehow ("Watch her take zee pleasurez from zee serpent..."), & then she washed it off, along with the sequins, after a performance.

I just assumed they met up because they were fugatives. She needed somewhere to keep the snake, so she left it in the bathtub and all the gunk in there is remnants from it's last meal. lol!

What's funny is that "real" snakes don't shed individual scales--guess Tyrell doesn't make them "more snake than snake" Wink

Just one of the many beloved inconsistencies with this masterpiece. And the motto is more HUMAN than HUMAN.

But were they fugitives before the lot of them hijacked the shuttle & headed for Earth?

And do they ever show any replicants (humanoid or other) eating (OTHER THAN DECKARD (omg repliCAN)? I can't recall off the top of my head.

Maybe Ben Abdul Hassan made his snakes by altering Fish genes, because Snakes were extinct.

Wasn't there a brief shot where Pris was eating something?
It was in Sebastian's apartment right after Roy showed up. I'm pretty sure she puts something in her mouth.

Do replicants need to eat to live? Or are they just going through the motions because this is what humans do?
