Yes. He did it automatically. As in, he anticipated someone being there, only to remember someone was not. The end.

Same with me, and I was completely lost and confused, as can be expected. But hey, it didn't ruin the series for me, and that's what counts.

Oh no, I mean the armor shifted on its own in EoE (though we're unsure of whether this was Yui's will or otherwise). I was wondering if Shinji could have popped out of the core in episode 20 if the armor hadn't been forcibly removed in battle prior to the operation, and if that w...

Ohh, I rather like that idea! But wouldn't that mean they couldn't hope to use Reis I or II in Third Impact? I mean unless you can get away with sticking half a soul into Lilith's body, they'd have to bring the two together at some point, and if part was indeed in Eva 00 then it woul...

It may not have been Yui's will at that point though, but rather her part in Third Impact. Of course she wanted it to happen so she would have done nothing to stop it, but that doesn't necessarily mean it was her conscious will to expose the core like that. This is just hypothetical anyway, ...

I don't recall any Rei II/Eva 00 fusion at any point. She does make contact with the soul within the Eva in episode 23, but they're never FUSED, plus that's likely to be part of Rei I's soul she was communicating with (and we've already seen how part of a soul can reside with...

could Yui leave Eva-01 AND effectively "neutralize" it at the same time? If we're talking leaving the same way Shinji was spat out of the core, is it possible that the chest armor of the Eva is preventing her from doing that? I mean, I'm sure if she REALLY wanted to she could do i...

I always liked to think Rei I was a result of the CE between Yui and Eva 01. We've all see the images of Lilith connected to Eva 01, what if that were taking place at the same time as the CE? Yui goes in, her soul remains in the Eva, but out pops a little Rei a la Shinji in Ep. 20, though contai...

Misato's car is taken to the Geofront via train, containing Shinji. Throughout the entire series, trains are repeatedly used as a symbol for both physical and mental transportation. They show transition, be it in day to day life, or more often as the series progresses, Instrumentality. Point A t...

See that the Adam in Terminal Dogma is labeled "Generally Recognized Information", like what Kaji and Misato thought. A bit off-topic, but why did Kaji mistake Lilith for Adam when he'd seen and delivered Adam to Gendo himself? I was never clear on that. And to keep things topic-relav...

Isn't that identical to the position we see Asuka in during the mind rape scene, only with a blue background instead of white? It could just be recycled.

Director's cuts: cut for a reason?

One of the greatest apparent plot holes in the series is the whole why-was-Kaworu-surprised-to-see-Lilith issue, but is it possible that the scene in 24' that shows that Kaworu knows Gendo possesses Adam's body was cut in order to alleviate potential confusion? In other words, is it possible...

I don't think use of the phrase "being intimate" necessarily refers to sex at all. For someone like Misato, to whom sex is an escape and distraction, sex may not require any emotional attachment at all, as Hyuga suggests with his "you'll be with anyone" comment. If she do...

A fifteen year hurry, you mean.

The only way that can be true is if up until NERV recieved the Spear, Lilith was regenerating her arm rather than her legs (the one we saw shriveling as Eva 01 was created), and really I don't think that was made clear enough in the show for it to be true.

Yeah, I was sold on the retardation theory for a while myself, until it was pointed out that the Spear wasn't even delivered to Central Dogma until way later than originally thought. If retarding Lilith's growth is not its function there, which I now suspect it's not, then there's no...

If the SoL wasn't meant to stop/retard Lilith's regeneration, then why stick it in her chest at all?
