It most likely IS Lillith's head as it exploded in tandem with the body.
In a quite freaky-looking manner, too.
It's not even unlikely that one of the many interim-Reis merged with her or the cable angel, explaining the sudden Rei heads. The eyes as holes in the angel goo were so creepy, even ReiQ of all people was freaked out.
Also, I watched it with my sister now. I told her to bring tissues, but she just shrugged it off - which isn't that unsusual for her, she has her lovely sides but she's mainly an already thoroughly currupted, mean-spirited little thing.
The way she saw all the mayor plot twists comming made me feel downright silly.
*Unit 02 can be seen swimming past the Wunder's window*
Isabel: Hm... I wonder just how many years in the future we are.
*EVA 09 shows up*
Isabel: That better not be the a fresh clone, damnit.
*Shinji finds ReiQ in her room thingy*
Isabel: You perv! Check if she's wearing clothes before barging in!
ReiQ: *butt naked*
Isabel: This is the next clone, isn't it. Scheißdreck. *RS fan* DAMN and I was hoping for Rei and Yui interacting...
Shinji: Nerv HQ really changed a lot, didn't it?
Isabel: Of course, you blew it up.
(She didn't expect the destruction to have gona far beyond east Asia, though.
IsabeL: ...So... what's left, anyway?
Me: Well, obviously Misato and the others, and there might few a few survivors here and there, but the planet is basically inhabitable.
Isabel: Wow. So do those flowers earlier mean its slowly getting habitable again)
*Kaworu takes DSS choker*
Isabel: Why did he do that right now?
Me: Shinji's been given that thing in case he gets too emotional inside the EVA and makes is go all shiny again, like in the last movie, since that made the world go poof. - My theory is that he used its full power for a while, but couldn't control it for long and the moment he got all relieved, "Oh, Rei, I finally got you back!", he wasn't concentrating on stuff and that apocalypse machine thingy was still returning to its "true form"... Basically, if that happens again and one of them has to be blown up to stop it, Kaworu wants it to be him.
Isabel: But that's totally useless! If Kaworu gets blown up, Shinji's still in there and he will obviously be very emotional!
Me: Damnit, that's exactly what happens....
Other notable reactions were:
*early in the movie*
Isabel: WTf is going on, why are they in space? Wasn't the last thing we saw the endf of thr world going on and stuff?
Me: If I don't answer, assume that you're supposed to be confused.
Shinji: What's going on? It's all so confusing of all sudden!
Isabel and me: Don't worry, we too.
And somehow she found having it explicitly stated that Rei is cloned from Yui a lot squickier than having it implied, which baffled me a litte.
Isabel: You poor little incestually-inclined sucker... *in a sympathetic way*
Me: He wasn't raised with her, so no westermarck effect *explains what it is* This is actually quite frequent in real life.
Isabel: But he must find it squicky NOW, right?
Me: He can't exactly turn of his feelings with a button. But what's the matter, you know this was the same in the original series, do you?
Isabel: Yeah but... That ass-face [Gendo] brought them together for his plans. Now That's fucked up.
Me: Yeah, it probably is.
But she's still team blue. That's just what she's like...
You'd think that she has more of an Asuka-personality, but noooo...
Isabel: What did she just say? *occassionally needs help with the English*
Me: She said "You didn't do it for me/ to save me, you were only thinking of yourself etc"
Isabel: Maaan, and I was finally starting to like her in 2.0.
Me: Wait until you see what she does now.
Asuka *uses catatonic 14 year old as football*
Isabel: *relatively unfazed*
Apparently, she found Asuka's "You suck speech" much worse than the kick... Now that I look at it it is horrible, but it didn't hit me that much, I mean, this is Asuka, half her lines are like this...
Isabel: So much for our hopes of a happier ending this time... *sigh*
Me: So, are you traumatized?
Isabel: Not really. D-man gray desensibilized me in that respect, you won't believe what happens to the poor protagonist *elaborates a little*
Me: Shinji's still in one piece, but he probably wishes he were cut to bits.
Isabel: And now we'll have to wait 10000 years for the fourth movie...
