First, the set-up:

Well, she wasn't in suspended animation anymore. Her oRgAn went ballistic because they were screwing around with her. But, that aside, it's, yes, the suggestion that the Team caused 2I by doing some weird thing with the Spear to "minimize the damage" (LOL MINIMIZE GET IT?), e.g. prevent an even bigger and badder 2I (as alluded to with frustratingly opaque Nihongo in CI), that is rather sloppy.
Also confusing is the part about "before the other Angels awakened". I mean, yeah, that lets us know that they already existed at least, but forwarding THAT as the specific reason why the Team attempted to use Spear Magic on Adam -- uh, what? Shouldn't the instantaneous annihilation of every last LDO on Earth be a bigger concern than the smaller detail of the 14 1/2 Apostles getting souls and hatching after a prolonged incubation*? I mean, as long as they could manage to put Adam back to sleep, they could deal with the Apostles even if she gave them souls.
* Assuming that's what they mean by "waking up", anyway, since I can't figure on anything else.
And the whole retroversion thing makes no real sense to me. Why not just use the Spear to subdue her like it had been doing all along? "HEY GUYS LET'S NOT DO WHAT WE KNOW WORKS, LET'S DO SOMETHING REALLY WEIRD LIKE REVERT HER TO AN EARLIER FORM OF DEVELOPMENT INSTEAD." Unless this weirdness was the Inexplicable Will of the Spear, but that doesn't fit with "that was in order to minimize the damage by returning Adam to an egg".
OH WAIT the CI says they were using the Spear in an attempt to "reseal her" LOL. So who is right? And the CI also ascribes the prevention of the bigger and badder 2I to the bousou S2, not any actions taken by the Team. Something smells funny.
And I still don't understand how Adam "blew apart" and retroverted into an egg/embryo/whatever at the same time.
And how did contact with Dr. Ka--, er, the donor spur all of this crap on, anyway?
LOL, thanks for nothing.
