Yeah, the 9th Angel incident made it pretty clear that Shinji cared about Asuka -- he just couldn't express it in a healthy way given the force of his hatred for his father. And the end of Q brought the two of them back together in a mutual survival situation that starts with Asuka saving him from rotting in his plug until he's coreified or something. The beginning of Shin will involve their relationship changing and growing in some way, I would hope for the better. All so that the story drama can rip out our hearts later, of course.

Mari's importance couldn't be foreshadowed much more obviously. The end of Shin Avant 1 had her channel Kaworu's "I'm going to stare into the distance and think about you fondly, even though you have no idea who I am" moments. Maybe completely unlike Kaworu, Shinji will actually get to learn from Mari in plain words how she already knows him and why he's important to her.

I'd be down for that. And I will definitely be down for the tons of "told you so"s we can dish out to people who refused to believe that Mari was any more than cheap fanservice
Why don't you save the Princess next time instead of being such a baby? She would love it and maybe you could get a sweet kiss. ~ sadly not Mari in Q (Joseki)

What about titty-ten? ~ Reichu

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

Oh, Mari was always integral to the world-building of the new movies. But she’s also the most fun character in the series, and Eva fans who came to see everyone sad again weren’t expecting that, and reacted extremely one way or the other to it. I just don’t think that her death would be a narrative gut-punch enough to mean anything to Shinji.

Asuka already had a near death experience, so making her die in Shin Eva would be like Trinity dying in Matrix Revolutions. Misato hasn’t had that yet in these movies, so I think that her death is more likely.

But, this is assuming that EVERYONE doesn’t die in this movie. If a Full Impact occurs in Shin Eva, I would believe that all bets would be off when it comes to “Who Dies?”
