In a flashback, Misato reveals the reason why she wants the Angels dead is because she wanted revenge for her father's death despite having ambivalent feelinsg about him at best for neglecting her. The end of the episode has Gendo praising Shinji, which causes Shinji to decide he wants to pilot Eva to please his father.

What if Shinji took it differently, realizing that was all he was going to get from his father and said he would rather pilot to get Misato's approval instead? I imagine Bardiel would come across as a bigger betrayal in this hypothetical timeline, assuming Misato still doesn't tell Shinji that Touji was the pilot.
