That opening scene was actually a rejected scene from the original Blade Runner. Pretty cool scene actually, it would have been nice if they could have fit it in. If you watch the 3 part documentary about it, Hampton Fancher talks about it, and they show storyboards of what that scene would have looked like.
Essentially, what happens is the Blade Runner goes to a farm house, no one is there. He sits down in a chair, and waits. We don’t know for what. The sun moves. Finally, the door opens, and a farmer walks in. “What can I help you with?” He walks into the kitchen and puts on some tea. The Blade Runner follows past him, and shoots him, not saying a word. He reaches into the guy’s mouth, and pulls out his jaw. It’s a piece of machinery. He looks at the serial number on it, then puts it in his pocket and walks out, while the tea kettle boils. He walks back to his spinner, with the dog outside yipping at his heels, as the spinner takes off into the background.
