Reichu wrote:This is only hinted at vaguely, but Yui's future career choices were either to (A) become the soul of EVA-01 or (B) get shot in the back by one of SEELE's grunts. Her conversation with Fuyutsuki seems to imply that Yui herself was targeted for elimination due to having goals contrary to those of SEELE, so uniting with the Eva was actually the best possible thing to do. SEELE could not dispose of EVA-01 like they could Yui herself, and, as the Eva, Yui would still have a chance to prevent SEELE's scenario for Third Impact.
Also, the limited amount of time available to Yui nicely explains why she carried out her EVA-01 Contact Experiment before the Eva had finished growing and was still attached to Lilith.
Reichu, you are a genius! You have managed to make sense of what I always considered one of the most enigmatic conversations in the entire series!
Episode 21 - Yui/Fuyutsuki under a tree with baby Shinji
[telop:_ 2003 AD]
[telop:_ Hakone - Lake Ashinoko levee]
The same weather day after day... The disappearance of autumn from this country is sad beyond words._ According to the scenario in SEELE's Secret Dead Sea Scrolls, Third Impact will definitely occur in a little over ten years.
SEELE and Gehirn - organizations for preventing the final tragedy.
I support your intentions - Not SEELE's.
Professor Fuyutsuki, it would be terribly dangerous to break that seal onto the world.
I've given all the materials to Ikari._ It's not something one can do alone._ (pause)
We won't repeat what happened last time.
Oh, and I've also been given a warning -
It seems that it would be no trouble at all for them to erase me.
And those who survived as well._ It's easy to exterminate people.
Still, that's no reason for you to become a test subject.
Everything happens as it must._ That is why I am with SEELE - for Shinji's sake...
This makes a whole lot of things fall into place...
I think it should be obvious now why this was one of the DC scenes considered significant enough to be retained on the Death (True)^2 cut of D&R...
