So, I only just noticed it, but its gots to have some kind of meaning. The rejected evangelions appear to have 3 eye holes. GNR also has a 'third' eye during 3rd impact. Ya know the part where the tree on life comes down, and a thrid eye opens up out her forhead. Well do you reckong theres any meaning to this?

The rejected Evas having three eyes may just be a coincidence. The skulls shown in the End of Evangelion's graveyard are shown as having up to seven eyes, so it stands to reason that a few would have three.

If I remember, some eastern mythologies/religions use a third eye as a symbol of spiritual enlightenment, or moving to the next stage of spiritual existence. Considering what GNR is doing, it seems like her third eye could be a reference to that. Or it could just be freaky imagery :P

As well as casual allusion to mystical notions of a third eye and its associations, it is, as skikes notes, another of Giant Naked Rei's many vulvae.

Third eye = unexpected avenue of vision = seeing differently, mystically, etc. = enlightenment/divinity. Which is also why I think that even if Unit 08 isn't literally Unit 01, they're meant to be somehow associated.
Nothing is so valuable that it need not be started afresh, nothing is so rich that it need not be enriched constantly.

Ha ha, reminds me of the first time I watched 2.0. I was also pretty drunk, having come home from the bar, so I was just sitting there going "Holy shit..."
