Could you go into detail into how Q changed your view of Jo?
In Jo, Misato learns to place her trust inside the pilot of Unit 01.
In Q, Misato tells Shinji that he will do nothing.
That whole scene in Jo where Misato tells Gendo that they should trust Shinji was written specifically so that Anno could turn that around on its head in Eva Q. In fact, both Jo and Ha have scenes that are turned on their head in Eva Q . At the end of Ha, Rei says that she'll make sure that Shinji doesn't have to pilot Unit 01 anymore. Whether it all worked out exactly as she had planned is actually a preposterous question to ask (she didn't intend to be devoured by and Angel), but it did result in Shinji not piloting Unit 01, just as she had said.
