Okay, so is there a theory floating around here somewhere that does account for the the water at the south pole being red, or is this just one of those "because it is" sorts of situations?
What actually happened ultimately followed no one's scenario, but all that's really needed is Lance + Adam + Lilith, with possibilities for substitutes.
Which then could have quite possibly have been fulfilled in ep22 as Misato feared, yes? We've got both a clone and an offspring of Adam nearby, both the body and soul (in two or more parts), and the lance all in the same place involved in this little adventure. Yet it didn't happen, so obviously there is something else at play.
That's interesting, but ultimately tells me nothing. It might as well say (insert technical words in a random order here).
The Angels aren't omniscient. They might've sensed Lilith and mistook it for their Mother, or the same with the EVA Units.
..or we just don't know exactly what the hell they're really up to since nobody ever takes the time to ask in any of the many chances they have for such contact.
To cut the fat for NemZ, "During EoE, Adam, Lilith, and Yui are essentially omnipotent as the plot demands."
True as that seems to be, it's hardly a satisfying answer. In fact many of the answers that seem to be offered boil down to "because that's what happened, so deal with it." Excuse me if I continue to look for something a bit more concrete, because the only other option is to be left disappointed by the hand-waving thus employed.
