So what if Mari is actually related to Asuka somehow?

I still stand by my 'everyone is a clone' theory,and think that if they all actually know this it explains quite a bit about their personalities.

Rei - It doesn't matter what I want...
Asuka - I'll prove I'm a real, unique person!
Mari - Oh well, might as well enjoy life while I can.

Couldn't that apply to the original series as well? (Minus Mari of course.)

Everything we know about Eva says "It HAS to be the mother", and it's unlikely they moved the maternal part of Kyoko around from Eva-02 to Eva-05 for one time to Eva-02 to Eva-03... I mean, I refuse to believe she gets around that much.

Asuka's personal problems are already explained in explicit detail, so... no.

Are we really talking about Eva piloting anymore? Theories about the -nami conspiracy should go somewhere else, IMO.

Are you talking about NGE, or Rebuild? Where in Rebuild do they explicitly hint at any of the native souls aside from 01's, or that we have a "kids piloting their moms" thing going on?

Even sisters don't have to have the same mom, you know.

Maybe Mari is just a Hacker/spy from another Nerv branch that knows back doors and such to piloting Eva's that allows her to pilot any Eva she is able to hack into? That couldn't be too insane of a theory could it?
Why in God's name would I wanna keep writing about characters whose central preoccupation are weed and dick and fart jokes? I mean, ya gotta grow man. Don't you ever want anything more for yourself? I know this poor hapless son of a bitch does. I look into his sorry doe eyes and I just, I see a man crying out. He's crying out, "When Lord? When the fuck can your servant ditch this foul-mouthed little chucklehead to whom I am a constant victim of his folly, so much so that it prevents him from ever getting to kiss a girl! Fuck! When, Lord when? WHENS GONNA BE MY TIME?

He was suggesting something from the original NGE paradigm, I was countering under its logic.
