** In this troper's interpretation, the reason is that in the original ending, you hear a nasty ''*CRUNCH*'' sound as the shot switches to Seymour, and in the alternate ending, the sound is changed to something less harmful like Audrey II trapping Audrey on its mouth. Both aftermaths are similar, you have Audrey with bite-marks all over her body and she faints. The big difference in the alternate ending is that Audrey II didn't manage to eat Audrey, but consumed enough blood to grow and attack Seymour, thus making it vulnerable to be destroyed. Also, in the alternate ending, they removed the shots Seymour fired at Audrey II, so it can be assumed that's what they were intending to imply when they remade the ending. As for why doesn't Audrey II stop Seymour from eating Audrey, it can fall under ForTheEvulz territory.

*** Considering it's the loudest Audrey II laughs, it's a case of "Too late, sucker! ''I win!''"

** Supporting the theory he's just as selfish as the antagonists is his first wish during ''Feed Me (Git It)''. It's not for Audrey's love but a desire to be seen as a hot shot just like Orin ("Gee, I would like a Harley machine / fooling around like I was James Dean / making all of the guys on the corner turn green"). The ''only'' time Audrey is mentioned is when Twoey brings her up ("Come on, kid, what will it be? Money? Girls? One particular girl? How about that Audrey?")

This adds a new layer to why Seymour is interested in Audrey in the first place. He doesn't love her for her personality but because Orin (everything he wants to be) has her.



* Some productions start out with plenty of extras playing hobos on Skid Row. After ''Feed Me (Git It)'', the number slowly dwindles until the Finale where the few leads are left. [[NightmareFuel Where else do you think they went in a musical about a man eating plant?]]

** It's not actually that weird, since without Audrey's death, Audrey II isn't powerful enough to do anything but manipulate small or lightweight objects like the phone, the gun, and Seymour's pants. It starts rattling the building because its roots have grown into the floor and it's uprooting itself as it aims to break free, but Seymour is able to kill it at that point because it's not as powerful as it would have been, if it had eaten Audrey: it wasn't strong enough to pull him out of the rubble and eat him.

** It's also a variation of the [[DealWithTheDevil Faust legend]], of a man who makes a deal with a shady and malevolent character and loses everything in the end.

* What is the significance of Seymour naming the plant after the woman he's secretly in love with? He behaves the way he does because (he justifies) of the chance Audrey would love him if he did, only to focus more on the plant until it destroys them? What else does this echo? That's right, [[DealWithTheDevil The legend of Faust]], made famous by Goethe and Marlowe.

*** However, it's not the real ending of the film to begin with. The film was supposed to be faithful to the play. It's a FocusGroupEnding.

** It's not a secret that ''Little Shop'' is played as Greek Tragedy. Look at the murders by Seymour: enemy, father, love, himself, in that order.
