At first I thought this was recap episode. They also show the Angels and their names. Though I’m too lazy to research if their names mean anything. I think also that names like ‘Drilling Angel’ are easier to remember than a name like ‘Ramiel’. But what I’m more interested in would be what that Seele scenario is.
I still can’t understand however why Rei thinks the elder Ikari is comfortable like water. The things she thinks about while inside Unit 01 are mind-boggling to me right now. I don’t know what to make of them, yet. On the outside she seems to be more calm and collected than Shinji.
So the reason Rei can sychronize with Unit 01 is that she has the same personality as Shinji. They are both introverts, whereas Asuka, an extrovert, well, they don’t even try to get her to synchronize with the other Evas. And wow, Unit 00 seems to be one ‘messed up’ up Eva.
This episode seems to leave me with a lot of questions. What happened to Rei in the past? What was Unit 00 trying to do? Why does Misato think it’s trying to kill Rei? Why does Ritsuko think it was trying to kill her? Who is Seele? And what is Longinus Lance?
Looks like I’ll have to watch more to find out. @_@
