(Needless to say, I don't think the apparent concurrence of these two images is a coincidence; it is the point of this whole post that the obvious resemblence, not merely in the expression on her face, but the fact that her face is framed and lit in exactly the same way, is deliberate, and is designed to indicate that she is going back in her mind to what SEELE told her in ep23'.)
You entire argument hinges on this connection between _Liar09.jpg and the same exact face in the interrogation. I agree with you that the animation absolutely implies a connection. But what is the connection? She makes that face when she finds out Gendo sailed her up the river to Seele. (At least in her mind). It seems to me you could say that she is remembering this moment, and nothing more. The mystery then remains since we don't know how to interpret this connection.
