So it’s Asuka’s turn for a ride in the mental rollercoaster in the Eva. But I’m far more interested in her mother. What was her research about? Why did she end up the way she did?
And what in the world is that Lange of Longinus? Who made it and why does it have such an effect on Angels? And why are they keeping Adam alive? (It must be, but I like asking questions now, this will record my ignorance lol. But don’t post major spoilers hehehe.) On the other hand, Asuka’s (mental and emotional) condition further deteriorated with her latest failure, and the fact that Rei saved her.
Now I get how dummy plugs were described as immoral. I actually thought that a dummy plug was a kind of AI or program, because I didn’t see what was inside. But they’re actually copies of Rei. I don’t know if it’s cloning as I know it. And how do those ‘Reis’ know how to pilot an Eva? But more importantly was the Rei who survived real or did the one who piloted the Eva die? The entry plug was very damaged when Ritsuko found it. And then the survivor Rei was saying she was probably the Third Child.
Anyway it’s a great and revealing episode. I’m really enjoying this series so far. I wonder what happens to Asuka next.
