Sorry, I meant 3.0. The 2.0 CRC calls what happened "Near Third Impact" while 3.0 has Kaworu use the term...So Third Impact itself didn't fully happen, right? It was just Near Third Impact?
And Fourth Impact didn't fully happen either, with all this talk of Final Impact and Human Instrumentality Project in the 4.0 Preview?
Sorry, I was just making sure you were referring to the "Impact" (or Near Impact) that did (not) happen at the end of 2.22... The terminology is confusing, because IIRC
(going off my memory here), at first Kaworu refers to it as 3I and then says, "You Lilin guys call it NEAR 3I"... My impression is that both times the Impact was stopped short of becoming "full blown"... On the other hand, it looks like a couple of "Near Impacts" pretty much messed up the landscape beyond recognition... (I also remember a whole bunch of puny little humans flying up into the sky during Near(??) 4I... but I think the Door of Guf was closed before it became a 'full' Impact, courtesy of Mari & Kaworu...)
Confusing, I know, sorry. I don't know, maybe to Kaworu an Impact is always an Impact, but to the Lilin it is not a proper Impact if it does not wipe them all off the face of the planet completely?
:EDIT: Uuuuh, the "screw thing"... That one had me so baffled, I realized I erased it off my memory after the movie!
:EDIT~2: To make things more complicated, I just realized they made a Rei figurine on whose box it is written, in big black letters,
EVANGELION 3rd IMPACT (I won it at a sort of lottery called Ichibankuji Evangelion Shingekijouban Ha...).
