I used to think Gaff might be a rep!

But only the first couple of times before I really got into the movie properly.

My thinking was something along the lines of..

1. Wouldn't it be a surprising twist if one of the 'human' characters turned out to be a replicant?

2. EJO was wearing those spooky blue contacts which made his eyes seem kind of strange and unnatural.

3. Gaff's eyes seemed to be so strongly emphasized that I could help but make a connection between him and Chew.

5. Gaff is one of the most mysterious characters in the whole movie, even without the spooky blues.

4. Perhaps Chew made Gaff's eyes?

Naturally, the glowing eyes of the replicants sailed past me completely unnoticed, but I suppose that was because I was watching a ratty old VHS copy and I was probably mashed at the time as well.

It took a while to dawn on me the possibility that Deckard was one. Put that down to my being confused about the differences between the Theatrical and Director's cut and the unicorn not being in the Theatrical to ram the point home.

Now I know better of course :)
It's my heart. It feels like an alligator.
