He was also being deliberately kept in the dark, not provided with vital information, and generally lied to by everyone around him. In his situation, I can't hold him 100% accountable for 4th Impact.

Maybe we'll get a flashback/mind train scene with Kaworu that gives us some more insight/explanation as to what he was trying to achieve in 3.0 that's led us to where Shinji is at in 3.0+1.0, hopefully.

This wasn't a question of "accountability" (something my reply didn't address in any way, if you notice...). It was a question of wishing for the exact same thing you already got in these movies, but expecting the outcome to be somehow different. :p

Which is exactly what I made him do (with balls, indeed) in my soon-to-become-history version of the ending...
