You can’t blame Joi for that, appropriate? You can’t phone Joi a traitor until you may also phone Siri or Alexa a traitor. Joi does not make alternatives; she follows programming. I’ve been referring to Joi as “her” this time that is whole but “it” is probably more accurate; sex, like every thing additionally about Joi, is a construct built to charm towards the heterosexual male whom bought her. And if Joi’s “death” as a result of Luv is tragic, it is just as a companion and confidant as he plunged into the case because we bought into the fantasy designed for K, who relied on her.
To be clear: I’m basing this on my very own reading of Joi, which will be essentially the most one that is cynical. You might install a plausible situation that K’s form of Joi does indeed develop some standard of sentience, and that her insistence on K’s uniqueness—and her increasingly separate agency, damn the consequences—make her as “human” as any peoples or replicant in Blade Runner world that is 2049’s. (The Blade Runner world depends on concerns similar to this. That’s what helps it be interesting. )
