(Screen text: So, everybody just go and die…)

Staff (in Japanese alphabetical order)

Random women’s voices:
You don’t really know if it’s love until after the infatuation stops.
Men just want a mother figure who’ll spoil them.
Men…You doit with them once and they think they own you.
Ritsuko?
Yeah, that’s okay,too.
You’ll be sorry for that.
That’s not romantic in the least.
Men are all scum…
Don’t think I’m going to forgive you!

The End of Evangelion
Episode 25: Air/Love is destructive.
:Translated Script

OPENING SCENE
Shinji stands silently before the lake created by the explosion of
EVA-00, triggered by Rei in episode number 23, which also destroyed Tokyo-3.

SCENE: Hospital – 1st Cranial Nerve Department
Shinji in Asuka’s hospital room (No. 303), Asuka lying in bed
———————————–

Background announcement:
Sections 2 and 3 of the East Wing will close at 6 p.m. today.
Staff are requested to finish all work by 4: 30 p.m.

Shinji:
I… I’m scared of both Misato and Ayanami…
Help me… Help me, Asuka.
Hey… Wake up! Come on… Wake up!
Come on… Hey… Asuka… Asuka… ASUKA!!
Help me… Help me… Help me… Help me… Help me!
Call me an idiot like usual!
HEY!!

(Shinji shakes Asuka roughly so that she rolls onto her back…
Her hospital gown opens to reveal her naked except for her underwear…
Shinji locks the door to the sickroom and his breathing gradually becomes faster and heavier ending with a muffled grunt (off screen).
He stares down at the ejaculated fluids covering his right hand.)

I… I’m scum… ((note: The English dubbed version uses a far more harsh translation which includes the “F” word))

———————————–
TITLE SCREEN: Episode 25 – Air
———————————–

SCENE: NERV Command Center-
Makoto, Shigeru and Maya talk as they sit in the dark and drink coffee.
———————————–

Maya (off screen):
What!? Total prohibition of access to and from Headquarters!?

Makoto (off screen):
I guess we’re still at First Level Alert…

Maya (off screen):
Why? Wasn’t Kaworu* the last angel? (*Literally: “that boy”)

Shigeru:
That’s right. All the angels have been destroyed.

Makoto:
Isn’t there supposed to be peace now?

Maya:
Then, what’ll happen to NERV? and the Evas?
I wish Dr. Akagi was here…

Shigeru:
NERV will probably be disbanded, and who knows what’ll happen to us.

Makoto (off screen):
We’ll just have to stick it out until the Instrumentality Project starts.

SCENE: Misato in her car – turnout overlooking the new lake (Tokyo-3)
———————————–

Misato (to herself):
Having reached its limit as a colony of flawed and separate entities,
Humankind is to be artificially evolved into a perfect single being.
The Instrumentality Project…
An ideal world…
And to achieve this the Committee plans to use not Adam or NERV, but Eva.
Just like Kaji predicted.

SCENE: SEELE monoliths – Gendo and Fuyutsuki
———————————–

SEELE 01 (Keel):
The promised time has come.
With the Lance of Longinus now lost, complementation using Lilith is impossible.
Our only hope is to proceed with EVA-01, Lilith’s sole clone.

Gendo:
While different from SEELE’s scenario…

Fuyutsuki:
Humans have existed to create Eva. (ambiguous)

Gendo:
Humans should evolve into a new world. That is the purpose of the Eva series.

SEELE 09:
We have no intention of giving up our human forms simply to enter the Ark called Eva.

SEELE 12:
It is merely a rite of passage… To bring about the rebirth in those who are imprisoned.

SEELE 05(?):
The fate of destruction is also the joy of rebirth.

SEELE 04(?):
A sacrament to unite God, humans, and all other life forms in death.

Gendo:
Death gives birth to nothing.

SEELE 01 (Keel):
Then death is what you shall have.

(SEELE monoliths disappear)

Fuyutsuki:
Humans exist because they have the will to live…
And that is the reason she remained within Eva.

SCENE: Rei lying in bed in her apartment. She wakes up (looking surprisingly like Yui), looks out the window to see the full moon illuminating the night sky, and leaves. Gendo’s glasses lie twisted and broken on the floor behind her.
———————————–

SCENE: Shinji lying awake in his room with his headphones on
The tape counter reads 00:00:00 and the battery indicator flashes empty.
———————————–

SCENE: The new lake (The ruins of Tokyo-3)
———————————–

SCENE: NERV Computer Room
Misato hacks into the system using a laptop computer.
———————————–

Misato:
So, this is the truth behind Second Impact… (Screen flashes and alarm sounds)
Have they noticed me!?
No, that’s not it! It’s starting!

SCENE: NERV Command Center
Alarms sound… emergency indicators light…
———————————–

NERV operator (background – male):
No. 6 net – audio communications severed!
Goura ground circuit, inoperative!

Fuyutsuki (to phone):
Switch the left side over to blue emergency communications!
Use the satellites if you have to! That’s right!
What’s the situation on the right?

Person on Phone:
Negative! All outgoing network and data lines are being cut off!!

Fuyutsuki:
Are they after MAGI?

Shigeru (off screen):
Data entry from all external nodes.
(on screen)
They’re hacking the MAGI system!

Fuyutsuki:
Just as I thought. Is it coming from MAGI-2 in Matsushiro (Tokyo-2)?

Shigeru:
No, it’s at least 5 MAGI type units.
Hacking verified from Germany, China, the U.S….

Fuyutsuki:
SEELE is mustering all of their forces. 5 to 1 odds… Not good.

Shigeru (off screen):
No. 4 firewall breached!

Makoto:
Locking the main database… Negative! We can’t stop their invasion!

Maya (off screen):
It’s entering a deeper level!
(on screen) Even the back-up circuit can’t stop it!

Fuyutsuki (thinking):
This is bad… Capture the MAGI system and you capture everything.

SCENE: Ritsuko in her cell
———————————–

Background announcement:
General Quarters: Second Level Alert! Repeat – General Quarters: Second Level Alert!

(Cell door opens)

Background announcement(cont’d): All personnel report to designated posts at once.

Ritsuko:
I know… MAGI’s self-defense system.

Security staff at door:
Yes. Lt. Ibuki at the No. 2 Command Center has the details.

Ritsuko:
Even an abandoned woman has her uses… How egotistical.

SCENE: Misato approaching Command Center with phone
———————————–

Background announcement:
Second Level Alert currently in effect! All B-floor non-combat personnel evacuate at once.

Misato:
Status report?

Makoto (on phone):
Hyuga here. Tokyo-2 has just issued Special Order A-801!

Misato:
801?

Makoto (on phone):
That’s right. Abolishment of special legal protection for NERV and transfer of all command to the government of Japan.

(Elevator door closes)

(NERV Command Center – Maya and Makoto)

Makoto:
It’s an ultimatum…
Yes, and MAGI is being hacked. Things aren’t looking good.

Maya:
Ibuki here.
Dr. Akagi has just begun protective countermeasures.

(Misato appears on elevator)

Misato:
Ritsuko!?

(Ritsuko inside MAGI)

Ritsuko:
(thinking) Am I acting foolish? Men and women are so illogical…
(speaking) Isn’t that right? (reaches up to Casper) Mother…

(NERV Command Center)

NERV operator (male):
Goura ground circuit recovery rate up to 0.2%

Misato:
How much longer?

NERV operator (female):
No. 3 cable, Hakone back-up circuit still inoperative.

Makoto (off screen):
We should just make it.
Dr. Akagi is amazing, one more minute to the end of page 120…
And only two-and-a-half more minutes until deployment of a primary firewall.

Misato (thinking):
Just hacking MAGI? They’re not going to let us off that easy… probably.

Fuyutsuki:
MAGI is only the first skirmish.
The bastards’ objective is the direct take-over of headquarters and the two remaining Eva units.

Gendo:
Yes. With not only Lilith, but even Adam in our hands….

Fuyutsuki:
No wonder the old men are so worried.

(MAGI displays turn green)

Maya:
Hacking against MAGI has been stopped.
(off screen) A Danang Type-B defense screen has been deployed.
External access is impossible for the next 62 hours.

(Ritsuko emerges from MAGI)

Ritsuko:
See you in a bit, mother.

SCENE: SEELE monoliths
———————————–

SEELE 06:
Ikari has executed a Type-666 protection program on the MAGI system.
It won’t be easy to breach.

SEELE 07:
It appears that we will have to forego acquisition of MAGI.

SEELE 01:
I had hoped to solve this peacefully, but that is not possible now.
Take over the entire headquarters directly, at once!!

SCENE: Road by the lake – JSSDF officer with military phone
———————————–

JSSDF officer:
Commence operations as planned.

(Soldiers pop up… aircraft fly… tanks and missiles fire… all hell breaks loose)

SCENE: NERV Command Center
Alarms sound… Screens go blank…
———————————–

NERV operator (female):
Radar sites 8 to 17 have gone dead!

Shigeru (off screen):
JSSDF tech battalion advancing through Goura defense perimeter!

Makoto (off screen):
Two battalions approaching from Gotemba!

NERV operators (background):
Three air squadrons confirmed approaching from Mishima.
Close down Futagoyama and Komagatake routes at once!
Invasion through Goura 2nd defense perimeter point A… Currently engaging enemy.

Fuyutsuki:
It seems that man’s ultimate enemy is also man.

Gendo:
General quarters. Go to First Level Battle Stations.

Maya:
Battle Stations!?
(whispered) But the enemy isn’t an Angel… They’re human like us.

Makoto (whispered):
But they don’t think that way.

SCENE: Outside NERV
War scenes… NERV guard stabbed in back… Gates open and alarm sounds
———————————–

NERV Soldier:
Hey, what’s going on? Hello!?

NERV Lieutenant:
What’s going on?

NERV Soldier:
The south hub-station…

(Truck explodes… Black suited troops move in.)

SCENE: NERV Command Center – More alarms…
———————————–

NERV operators (male):
Daigatake tunnel cut off!
Fire at West No. 5 freight entrance!
Invading forces have entered Level 1!
(female): South hub station off-line!

Misato:
The forces attacking the west side are a decoy!
If their real target is the Evas, they’ll be going after the pilots!
Have Shinji stand by at EVA-01, quickly!

Makoto:
Affirmative!

Misato:
Where’s Asuka?

Shigeru:
In sickroom 303.

(Shot of Asuka lying in bed)

Misato (off screen):
Put her into EVA-02 anyway.

Maya:
But her synchronization with Eva hasn’t recovered yet.

Misato:
Yes, but she’ll definitely be killed if she stays there.
The best place to hide her is inside EVA-02.

Maya:
Affirmative!
(to headset) Stop medication to pilot. Prepare for launch!

Misato:
As soon as Asuka is inside EVA-02, hide it in the underground lake.
It’ll be found almost immediately, but it’s better than leaving it in the cage.
Where’s Rei?

Shigeru:
Whereabouts unknown… Unable to locate!

Misato:
She’ll be killed. Find her, quickly!

(Rei floating in LCL tank)

(EVA-02 launch)

Makoto:
EVA-02 launched via No. 8 route.
Stabilize at a depth of 70 meters.

Misato:
Launch EVA-01 next! Deploy it inside the Geofront!

Shigeru:
Negative! The pilot hasn’t arrived yet!

Misato:
What!? (Shinji verified on monitor screen) Oh, no….!

Background announcement:
Closing all Central Dogma barricades up to Level 2.
All non-combat personnel, evacuate via route 87.

(Shots of gates and barricades closing throughout NERV)

(NERV Command Center)

Shigeru (off screen):
No. 3 underground barricade destroyed! Enemy Forces invading Level 2!

Fuyutsuki:
The JSSDF have committed almost an entire division…
It’s only a matter of time before they take us over completely.

Gendo:
Dr. Fuyutsuki, take care of things here.

Fuyutsuki:
I understand. Give my regards to Yui.

(Shots of fighting and mayhem)

(NERV Command Center)

NERV operators (male):
No response from Group 2!
Communication with No. 77 Computer Room negative.

Shigeru:
No. 52 monorail destroyed!

Background announcement:
Explosion confirmed at No. 3 hub-station. Numerous dead. Damage unknown.

Makoto:
This is terrible. Even Angels would be better.

Misato (thinking):
It’s no surprise… We’re not used to killing other humans.

(More shots of death and destruction- female NERV officer drags the body of her comrade down a passage way, only to be struck down by a barrage of bullets from an invading JSSDF soldier)

JSSDF officer:
Cut the cables starting with the red ones…

(NERV Command Center)

NERV operator (male):
Level 3 Block B invaded! Defense impossible!

Shigeru (off screen):
Enemy also confirmed in Block F! Main Bypass under crossfire!

Misato:
Abandon Levels 1 to 3! Combat teams, retreat!
Release Bakelite into all passages and pipes up to Section 803!

Shigeru:
Affirmative!

(Shot of Bakelite being released)

Background announcement:
Commence Bakelite injection from Section 703. 30 seconds to completion.
Commence Bakelite injection from Section 737. 30 seconds to completion… (continues)

Misato:
This should slow them down a bit.

Makoto:
Major Katsuragi! No. 47 route has been cut off… Group 3 is unable to advance!
If this continues Shinji will be…!

(Shot of Shinji hiding)

(NERV Command Center)

Misato (off screen):
All non-combat personnel avoid close combat.
(Misato takes out and loads her pistol)
(on screen) The enemy are professionals…
If you can’t fall back to the Dogma, it’s better to surrender.
(whispered to Makoto) Sorry, take care of things here.

Makoto:
Sure.

SCENE: Outside NERV
———————————–

Background:
Mt. Futagoyama under control – Seal off Nagao Pass at once!
*afirmitive*
Visual confirmation of No. 1 Command Center explosion…

JSSDF Division Commander:
This is more difficult than expected.

Sub Commander:
We never get the easy jobs.

SCENE: NERV Command Center
Makoto and Shigeru take out and ready small arms.
———————————–

Makoto:
This is bad… We were never equipped with full-scale anti-personnel defense systems.

Shigeru:
Yeah. Only counter-terrorist measures at best.

Makoto:
If the JSSDF mounts a serious attack, we don’t stand a chance.

Shigeru:
Come to think of it, the reductions in funding for anti-personnel defense measures probably had this in mind from the beginning.

Makoto:
That’s entirely possible…

(Explosion in Command Center… Attacking forces move in…)

Background:
No. 2 Command Center – Invaders on lower left floor.

Shigeru:
(Handing pistol to Maya) Release the safety.

Maya:
I… I can’t shoot.

Shigeru:
Of course you can! Just pretend this is training!

Maya:
But I wasn’t shooting at people, then!

Shigeru:
Idiot! Shoot, or we’re going to die!

———————————–
TITLE SCREEN – THE END OF EVANGELION
EPISODE 25′ – Love is destructive
———————————–

SCENE: Rei, staring into the tank containing the remains of her destroyed counterparts
———————————–

Gendo (off screen):
Rei… I thought you’d be here.
(on screen)
The promised time has come.
Let’s go.

SCENE: Dead NERV personnel litter the passageway
———————————–

1st soldier (off screen):
Level 2 completely secured, over.

2nd soldier (on radio):
No. 2 Command Center – Still unable to secure original MAGI system.
Currently engaging enemy on lower left floor.

JSSDF officer (on radio):
Commence heat dissipation procedures on the fifth Malbolgia at once.

(NERV officer raises arms in surrender – JSSDF officer fires a round into his head, places his foot on the body, and fires two more shots.)

JSSDF officer (female):
Eva pilots are to be terminated on sight.
Unconditional execution of non-combat personnel authorized.

JSSDF officer (on radio):
Yanagihara and Shinjo squads, enter lower levels immediately.

(Shinji hiding… and found by three JSSDF soldiers)

Soldier:
3rd pilot found – will proceed to eliminate.
(Places barrel of gun against Shinji’s forehead)
Nothing personal, kid.

(Misato charges in firing to the rescue)

Misato (cynically):
Nothing personal here either… (Shoots soldier)
Come on… Let’s get to EVA-01.

SCENE: Misato and Shinji in parking lot- Misato listening to enemy movements on a dead soldier’s radio
———————————–

JSSDF radio:
Yamagishi squad at No. 7 cage, report your status, over.
Purple unit secured.
No problems with Bakelite infusion.
Red unit appears to have been launched…
Currently searching for launch route used.

Misato:
Damn! They’re trying to prevent physical contact between Shinji and EVA-01.
There’s no time to lose…
Quick, Shinji… (pause) Do you want to run away, or go to Eva? – Pick one!
(Shinji says nothing)
-If we stay here we’ll die for nothing!

Shinji (whispering):
Help me, Asuka… Help me…

Misato (exasperated):
Hiding behind a girl at a time like this!?
Running from reality… Lying to yourself!?
Doing things half-assed is the worst thing you can do!
So, stand up! Stand up!!

Shinji (whispering):
No… Let me die. I don’t want to do anything.

Misato (angry):
Stop talking like a spoiled brat!
You’re still alive, aren’t you?
So, do all you can to keep yourself alive, and then die afterwards!

SCENE: NERV Command Center
The battle continues…
———————————–

Fuyutsuki:
Forget about here! Give top priority to isolating the Terminal Dogma!

Makoto:
Everything else has been destroyed…
Why don’t they just blow up the Command Center, too?

Shigeru:
I’m sure they’d like to take us out in a single blow, but the original MAGI system is right below us.

Makoto:
They want the MAGI system intact, huh?

Shigeru:
But we’re defenseless against BC (biological and chemical) weaponry.
If they use those, we’re in trouble.

Makoto:
N2 weapons, too…

(As if by coincidence, an N2 warhead drops, opening up the Geofront)

Shigeru:
Speak of the devil!

Makoto:
Isn’t that a bit extreme!?

Fuyutsuki (smirking):
Playing a bit rough, aren’t we?

(Numerous missiles strike the Geofront directly)

Maya:
Why do they want the Evas so badly!?

SCENE: Misato and Shinji in Misato’s car – Scrapped Eva prototypes.
———————————–

Misato:
They plan to initiate Third Impact – not with Angels, but by using the Eva series.
15 years ago, Second Impact was caused by humans on purpose.
(Flashed shot: Second Impact)
But that was in order to minimize the damage by returning Adam (flashed image: Giant of Light) to an embryonic state (flashed image: Embryo in attache case) before the other Angels awoke.
(flashed image: graves)
Shinji, we humans were born from a being called Lilith, who is the source of life just like Adam. We are the 18th Angel. (flashed image: DNA) The other Angels are possibilities of what we might have become – humans that gave up human form. (flashed image: Kaworu – Rei)
Sadly, we had to reject each other – even though we’re all human…
Listen, Shinji… You must destroy all of the Eva series. It’s the only
way to stay alive.

SCENE: Office of the Prime Minister of Japan
(Sounds of construction in the background)
———————————–

Prime Minister:
The phone lines have gone dead.

(Screen text: Nagano Prefecture, New Tokyo-2
Prime Minister’s Residence, No. 3 State Office)

Secretary:
Yes, sir. Ballistic warhead impact was confirmed three minutes ago.

Prime Minister:
The Instrumentality Project that NERV was secretly researching…
Initiating Third Impact to annihilate mankind…
The mere thought sends shivers down my spine.

Secretary:
Humans must be the only creatures able to despise their own kind.

Prime Minister:
All that’s left is to take care of the NERV headquarters facilities.

Secretary:
Do you want Germany or China to undertake the re-development?

Prime Minister:
No – We won’t be taken advantage of.
Seal it up for 20 years, just like old Tokyo.

SCENE: Outside in the Geofront.
———————————–

1st soldier (on radio):
Surface heat receding.
High-pressure steam discharges have also subsided.

2nd soldier (on radio):
Initial location of all units completed.

JSSDF Sub Commander::
Dogma Level 3 and the purple unit have been secured.

JSSDF Commander::
And the red unit?

Intelligence officer:
Found in the underground lake at a depth of 70 meters. The pilot’s status is unknown.

SCENE: Asuka curled up in the fetal position inside EVA-02 Entry Plug
———————————–

Asuka:
…I’m alive…

(Shots of depth charges firing and exploding around EVA-02)

Asuka:
(Whispered at first then repeated growing louder and stronger)
I don’t want to die… I don’t want to die… I don’t want to die…

(Another voice mixes with Asuka’s)

I don’t want to die… (You’re still alive) I don’t want to die… (You mustn’t die yet) I don’t want to die… (You must live) I don’t want to die… (I won’t let you die) I don’t want to die… (Don’t kill me) I don’t want to die… (You’re still alive) I don’t want to die… (I won’t let you die yet) I don’t want to die… (You must keep living) I don’t want to die… (Die for me!) I don’t want to die… (You mustn’t die yet!) I don’t want to die… (Die!) I don’t want to die… (You’re alive!)
I don’t want to die… I don’t want to DIE!!

(Flashback to Asuka as a child with mother)

Child-Asuka:
Mama… So this is where you’ve been? Mama!

(Asuka clasps her mother’s hand and EVA-02 awakens.)

SCENE: Geofront lake -> Giant cross-shaped explosion
———————————–

1st soldier:
What the!?

2nd soldier:
Did we get it!?

(EVA-02 emerges and starts fighting)

Asuka (thinking):
Mama… Mama!
I understand now… The meaning of the AT Field.
It’s always protecting me! Always watching over me!
(speaking) Always… always together!
Mama!

(Misato and Shinji in Misato’s car)

Maya (on radio):
EVA-02 has activated!
Asuka’s okay! She’s alive!

Misato:
Asuka!?

(Asuka fighting)

JSSDF officer:
The cable! That thing’s power cable!
Concentrate all fire power on the cable!

(Cable is severed)

Asuka:
Shit!!
Even without the cable…
I still have 12,000 plates of special armor… and my AT Field!
I can’t lose! Not against you!!

(JSSDF forces are easily beaten by Eva-02 and Asuka)

SCENE: SEELE monoliths
———————————–

SEELE 01:
The loathsome Evangelion…
Do they stand in our way yet again?
It seems that one must fight fire with fire.

SCENE: EVA-05 to -13 released -> Asuka
———————————–

Asuka:
The Eva series!?
They’ve been completed?

(NERV Command Center)

Fuyutsuki:
Deployment of all nine units equipped with the S2 system!?
Isn’t that a bit excessive?
Or, do they plan to initiate it here!!?

(Eva series land)

Misato (on phone):
Listen Asuka. You must destroy all of the EVA series.
I’ll have Shinji there to help assist you soon. Do your best.
(changes lines – to Makoto) We can get to EVA-01 via emergency route No. 20, right?

Makoto (on phone):
Affirmative. We’ve secured three seperate power sources just in case.
As long as you enter within three minutes, you can reach the No. 7 cage directly.

(Misato starts dragging Shinji)

(Asuka in EVA-02)

Asuka:
I have to destroy them all?
Is she forgetting she’s talking to a convalescent?
Nine units in three and a half minutes…
That works out to only 20 seconds apiece!

(Asuka attacks)

Asuka:
Erst! (German: “That’s one!”)

SCENE: Misato and Shinji – Emergency Elevator R-10-20
———————————–

Misato:
Here it is.

(Shots fire… Misato is hit, but they enter the shaft and the door closes)

1st soldier:
They got away…

2nd soldier (to radio):
Unable to terminate target.
Standing by for orders to pursue…

JSSDF officer (on radio):
Negative. That area is scheduled for demolition.
Pull back immediately.

2nd soldier:
Yes, sir.

(Misato and Shinji in passageway)

Misato (slumped against wall – labored breathing):
Th… That should hold them off… for a while.
I’m okay… It’s not as serious… as it looks.
(staggers to feet and opens gate)
There’s still power – We can make it.

(Misato pins Shinji against gate)

-Shinji… from here out you’re on your own.
You have to make the decisions by yourself – without anyone’s help.

Shinji:
I… I can’t do it. I just can’t…
I can’t pilot Eva if it means I’m going to hurt or even kill other people.
I have no right to do that.
I thought that piloting Eva was my only choice…
But I was just fooling myself.
I don’t understand anything – I’m not worthy to pilot Eva.
There’s nothing that I can do for other people!
I’ve done terrible things to Asuka, and even killed Kaworu…
There isn’t a shred of kindness in me!
Only dishonesty and cowardice…
If I can only hurt people, then I’d rather not do anything at all!

Misato (angrily):
I’m not going to feel sorry for you.
If you don’t want to be hurt, then just die without doing anything at all!

(Shinji starts crying)

-Crying won’t help you now!

(Misato’s tone becomes gentler)

-You hate yourself, right?
That’s why you hurt other people…
Because you know that hurting other people is more painful than hurting yourself.
But, no matter what happens, remember that it was your decision.
And that makes it worthwhile, Shinji – Because you decided by yourself!
So stop lying to yourself… Think about what you can do… And then live with your decisions.

Shinji:
But you’re… you’re not me!
You don’t understand anything about ME!!

(Misato slams Shinji against the gate)

Misato (harshly):
So what if I’m not you!? ((*note again that the English dub uses the “F” word here))
Are you just going to give up now!?
If you stay here and do nothing, I won’t forgive you!
I’ll NEVER forgive you!!

(Misato’s tone changes to desperation)

-Nobody’s perfect.
You realize that you’ve made a mistake, and then regret it…
That’s all I’ve ever known.
Nothing but empty happiness and hating myself.
But… I feel like I always grew from the experience!

Misato (gently):
Listen, Shinji. Pilot Eva once more and find yourself.
Pilot Eva to face the questions “Why did you come here?”
“Why are you here?”
Find your own answers.
And then… after finding yourself… come back to me.

(Misato places her cross in Shinji’s hand)

Misato:
It’s a promise.
Now, go.

(Misato kisses Shinji deeply)

Misato(sultry voice):
That’s a grownup kiss.
We’ll do the rest when you get back…

(Misato pushes the stunned Shinji into the elevator and then collapses)

Misato (weakly):
If I knew it would end this way…
I would’ve done like Asuka said…
And changed the carpet…
Right, Pen-pen?
Kaji… did I do all right?

(A ghostly Rei stands above Misato, then an explosion -> Shinji crying in elevator. Looking at Misato’s blood spattered cross and tasting her blood in his mouth, Shinji slides into the corner, sobbing.)

SCENE: Asuka fighting Eva series
———————————–

(Shinji standing in front of EVA-01 encased in solidified Bakelite)

Asuka (on speaker):
Jeeez! Don’t they ever stop!?
And I can’t even count on that idiot Shinji!!

SCENE: Terminal Dogma – Gendo, Rei and Lilith – Ritsuko sitting at edge of LCL pool
———————————–

Ritsuko:
I’ve been waiting for you.

(Ritsuko stands and draws a gun… Asuka fighting… Back to Ritsuko)

Ritsuko:
I’m sorry… I secretly altered MAGI’s program earlier.
A daughter’s final request…
Mother… die with me.

(Ritsuko presses something in her pocket, but nothing happens.)

Ritsuko:
It didn’t activate? Why!?
(Pulls portable terminal from pocket – Casper-3: Rejected)

(gasp) Betrayed by Casper!
How could you, Mother? Choosing your man over your own daughter…

(Gendo draws his gun)

Gendo:
Ritsuko Akagi, I truly… (Gendo’s lips move, but you can’t hear him.)

Ritsuko (surprised, but then smiles):
… Liar….

(Gendo shoots Ritsuko, who falls back into the pool of LCL before a ghostly Rei.)

SCENE: NERV Command Center
The battle rages on – Maya monitors EVA-02 via laptop computer
———————————–

Makoto:
What’s happening outside?

Maya:
Less than a minute before EVA-02 reaches its operational limit!
At this rate, Asuka will…!

(Asuka fighting the Eva series)

Asuka:
I can’t lose!

(Shinji sitting in front of EVA-01)

Asuka (on speaker):
Not with Mama watching me!

Shinji:
Mama… Mother?

(Back to Asuka fighting)

Asuka:
These are the last ones!

(As Asuka finishes off the last Evas, one of the Eva series’ swords comes flying at her… She stops it with her AT Field, but it turns into the Lance of Longinus)

Asuka:
The Lance of Longinus!?

(The Lance pierces the AT Field, then EVA-02’s head… Asuka shrieks and EVA-02 powers down… Asuka clutches futilely at the controls)

(NERV Command Center)

Maya:
Internal power source depleted… Operational limit reached. EVA-02… down.
What!? The destroyed… Eva series!?

(Eva series reactivates)

Maya:
The Eva series have reactivated!

Shigeru:
Are they’re going to finish her off!?

(Eva series flock over EVA-02 and rip it apart like carrion birds)

Makoto:
What’s happening?

Maya:
(gagging) I can’t look! I… I can’t watch anymore!

(Maya’s laptop shows EVA-02’s body display blanking out piece by piece.)

Makoto:
This is…? EVA-02!?

(Geofront, where EVA-02 is being ripped apart)

Asuka (snarling):
I’ll kill you… Kill… kill… kill you… Kill… I’ll kill you… I’ll kill you all… (repeated)

(EVA-02 attempts to reactivate)

(NERV Command Center)

Makoto:
Berserker?

Maya:
Asuka! Stop!!

Asuka:
Kill you all… I’ll kill you… I’ll kill you all… (repeated)

(Asuka’s arm splits in two as a Lance of Longinus splits EVA-02’s arm
– Eva series impale EVA-02 with their lances)

(Maya gasps – Shinji sitting in front of EVA-01)

Maya (on speaker – screaming):
Shinji!! EVA-02! Asuka! Asuka… she’s…!

Shinji:
But I can’t pilot Eva… There’s nothing I can do…

(EVA-01 breaks free from the Bakelite and clutches at Shinji)

Shinji:
Mother!?

(Terminal Dogma – Rei and Gendo)

Gendo:
Has EVA-01 finally awakened?

(NERV headquarters pyramid explodes upwards in a giant cross which turns into wings – EVA-01 appears howling in the Geofront with a demon’s face and a set of wings)

JSSDF Sub Commander:
Evangelion Unit One?

JSSDF Commander:
It’s the devil himself!!

(Shinji subdued inside EVA-01 entry plug)

Shinji:
Asuka…

(Shinji sees the mangled remains of EVA-02 and screams)

Shinji: AHHHHHH!!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

SCENE: Terminal Dogma – Gendo and Rei before Lilith
———————————–

Gendo:
Adam and I are now as one… For this is the only way to be with Yui again.
The forbidden joining of Adam and Lilith.

(Rei’s arm falls off)

There’s no time… Your AT Field can no longer hold your shape.
Let’s begin, Rei.
Release your AT Field, the barrier of your heart.
Complement your imperfect heart, leave your useless body…
Merge all souls into one.
And then, take me to Yui’s side.

(Gendo places his hand on Rei’s left breast and begins to merge with her)

(Rei cringes as waves of pleasure course through her body, a small gasp escapes her lips.)

Shinji: AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHH!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

(Terminal Dogma – Gendo and Rei)

Rei (startled = unspoken):
Ikari…!

(EVA-01 bursts free of its restraining plates and its wings form into a cross)

(The Lance of Longinus pulls free of the moon and flies toward earth as if drawn by EVA-01)

JSSDF Intelligence Officer:
Unidentified object approaching at high-speed from the outer atmosphere.

JSSDF Commander:
What!?

(NERV Command Center)

Fuyutsuki:
No!… Not the Lance of Longinus!?

(The Lance of Longinus stops just short of EVA-01’s throat.)

SCENE: SEELE monoliths
———————————–

SEELE 01:
At long last our hopes are to be realized.

SEELE 04:
The original Lance of Longinus has returned as well.

SEELE 09:
While somewhat fewer than planned, it will have to do.

ALL (chanting):
Return the Eva series to its rightful form.
Evangelize humankind and restore us to our true form.
With indiscriminate death and prayers, we return to our original state.

SEELE 01:
And let all souls find peace.
Now, let the sacrament begin!

(EVA-01 is crucified by the Eva series and lifted upwards)

SCENE: NERV Command Center
———————————–

Makoto:
EVA-01 has been captured!

Shigeru:
Altitude 12,000 meters! …and rising!

Fuyutsuki:
SEELE bastards… Do they plan to use EVA-01 as the well of souls!? ¹

(Eva series release EVA-01… Shinji in entry plug with marks on palms)

SCENE: SEELE monoliths
———————————–

SEELE 09?:
EVA-01 has been marked with the stigmata (sacred insignia).

All (chanting):
To restore the Tree of Life!

SEELE 01:
Our servants, the Eva series…

(Keel appears) Their existence has all been for this one moment.

(Eva series move to the positions of the Sephroticum and shine in circles around the cross of EVA-01)

SCENE: NERV Command Center)
———————————–

Shigeru (off screen):
The Eva series have opened up their S2 systems!

Makoto (off screen):
Dimensional values inverting! They’re going negative!
Measurement impossible… Numerical expression invalid!

Fuyutsuki:
An anti-AT Field…

(Eva series form into the Sephiroticum (Tree of Life))

Maya:
All the data are just like 15 years ago!
Then… this really is… The prelude to Third Impact!

SCENE: Outside NERV
———————————–

1st soldier:
S2 system level critical!

Background:
Abort operations! All units pull back at once!

2nd soldier:
We… We can’t maintain molecular attraction any longer!

JSSDF Commander:
Mission… failed…

(A massive explosion envelopes the Geofront)

SCENE: NERV Command Center shaking from the force of the explosion
———————————–

Shigeru:
Direct impact! Surface layers melting!

Makoto:
Second wave excavating the headquarters periphery! It’s exposing the outer hull!

Background:
Main JSSDF force annihilated!

Fuyutsuki:
They’re just physical shock waves!
Set the absorbers to maximum level – It should hold!

(The explosion expands outward from the Geofront, revealing the egg of Lilith: the Black Moon)

SCENE: SEELE monoliths
———————————–

SEELE 08/09:
With the Purification of the Red Earth…
That bespeaks time eternal…

SEELE 11:
First, return the Geofront…

Keel:
To its true form.

(Pull-back shot of the Earth and Lilith’s Egg)

Fuyutsuki (off screen):
The egg of Lilith… the genesis of human life… the Black Moon…
We have no desire to return to that empty shell,
(on screen) But even that depends on the will of Lilith.

SCENE: Terminal Dogma
———————————–

Gendo:
It seems to have begun…
Rei, take me to Yui’s side.

(Rei’s abdomen tightens around Gendo’s hand)

Gendo: What!?

(Rei absorbs Adam’s embryo along with Gendo’s right arm, and rejects Gendo)

Rei:
I’m not your doll.

Gendo:
Why!?

Rei:
Because I’m not you.

(Rei’s arm reforms)

Gendo (strained):
Rei…!
Please!
Wait… Rei!

Rei:
No. Ikari is calling me.

Gendo:
Rei!

(Rei ascends to Lilith)

Rei:
I’m home…

(Screen text: Welcome back.)

(Rei is absorbed into Lilith… Lilith’s heart starts beating… Her legs reform and she descends from the cross… The mask of SEELE falls off and Lillith takes Rei’s form)

Gendo:
Rei…

SCENE: NERV Command Center
———————————–

Shigeru:
Unidentified high-energy source approaching rapidly from Terminal Dogma!

Makoto:
AT Field verified! Analysis pattern blue!!

Maya:
It’s not… an Angel!?

Makoto:
No! It’s… a person!? It’s human!

(Lilith-Rei rises through the Command Center… Lilith-Rei’s hand passes through Maya, who shrieks in terror)

(Shinji inside the suspended EVA-01)

Shinji:
Damn… Damn… Damn… Damn!

(Lilith-Rei appears)

Shinji:
Ayanami…? Rei…!?

(Shinji screams as Lilith-Rei focuses on EVA-01 and cups it in her hands)

Shinji: AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! AHHHH!!!

SCENE: SEELE monoliths
———————————–

All (chanting):
Evangelion Unit 01’s pilot…
Complement humankind with your imperfect ego.

Keel:
The moment of the Third Retribution has come.

(Eva series form into pattern)

SCENE: NERV Command Center
———————————–

Shigeru:
The Eva series’ AT Fields are resonating!

Makoto:
And amplifying further!

Fuyutsuki:
Has the assimilation with Rei begun?

(Eva series take Rei’s laughing faces… Shinji/EVA-01 scream and EVA-01’s core is exposed… Shinji clutches futilely at the controls)

Shinji: AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! ASUKA!!! AHHHHHH!!!

Shigeru:
Psychograph signal down!

Makoto:
Destrado materializing!

Fuyutsuki:
Surely the pilot’s ego can’t take much more…

SCENE: Shinji, curled into a ball within Eva-01’s entry plug
———————————–

Shinji (whimpering):
No… No… No… No… No… No…!

Kaworu (off screen):
Do you want it to stop?

(Lilith-Kaworu appears)

Shinji:
Is that where you’ve been? Kaworu?

(Shinji resigns himself to Kaworu’s outstretched hands… The Lance of Longinus approaches EVA-01’s core)

SCENE: NERV Command Center
———————————–

Shigeru:
Solenoid graph inverting! ego barrier weakening!

Makoto:
AT Field shifting to pattern red!

Fuyutsuki:
The Fruit of Life possessed by Angels,
And the Fruit of Wisdom possessed by humans…

(The Lance penetrates the core and merges with EVA-01 into the Tree of Life)

Fuyutsuki (off screen):
Having obtained them both, EVA-01 has become like a God.
And now it has been restored to the propagule of souls… the Tree of Life.
Will it become the Ark to save humankind from the nothingness of Third Impact?
Or the demon that destroys us all?
Our future lies in the hands of Ikari’s son.

Maya (clutching at Shigeru’s sleeve):
Did… Did we do the right thing?

Shigeru:
How should I know!?

(Lilith-Kaworu transforms into Lilith-Rei with hands cupped around EVA-01)

Yui (voice):
This Rei is your heart… Your very hopes and dreams…

Rei (voice):
What do you wish for?

SCENE: Inside Shinji’s Mind
(In a park – Shinji as a child)
———————————–

Shinji (voice):
I see… It’s just like when I started the cello.
I thought that if I came here, I could find something…

Child A:
Come on, Shinji!

Child B:
Let’s build a castle!

Child-Shinji (smiling):
Okay.

Child A:
Oh, here comes Mama!

Child B:
We have to go home now!

Child A:
Bye-bye!

Child A and B (laughing):
Mama… Mama!

(Shinji builds a pyramid (NERV headquarters) alone, and then destroys it… Crying, he starts to build again)

(Random thought sequence – inside Shinji’s mind)

Asuka:
Jeeez! I get so pissed off whenever I look at you!

Shinji:
Because I’m like you…?

Child-Asuka (crying):
Mama!

Asuka (sleep-talking):
Ma… ma…

Shinji (staring at Misato’s cross):
Mama…?

Misato (voice):
I wasn’t able to become Shinji’s mother after all…

(Kaji’s and Misato’s college apartment)

Misato:
Mmmm, let’s do it.

Kaji:
Again? Aren’t you supposed to meet your friend at school today?

Misato:
Hmm? Oh yeah, Ritsuko. It’s okay, we still have time…

Kaji:
We’ve been cooped up here for a week now…

Misato:
Yeah, but I think I’m getting the hang of it… so come on…

(The lovemaking begins and continues in the background)

Misato:
I probably just did this to prove that I existed.

Asuka:
How idiotic! It’s just two lonely adults comforting each other.

Ritsuko (precisely):
We want to feel needed, even if it’s only physical.

Misato:
I feel wanted, and that makes me happy.

Asuka:
It’s just an easy way for you feel that you’re worth something.

Shinji (disgusted = thinking):
This is Misato? She does… this?

Misato:
Yes, this is also me… The melting into one another’s hearts…
The me that Shinji doesn’t know.
Reality does involve pain, but you just have to accept it.

Asuka:
Aaahh… I wonder if I’ll act like Misato when I grow up?

(Shinji and Asuka in Misato’s apartment)

Asuka:
Say… wanna kiss?..

Misato:
You mustn’t!

Asuka:
Or are you afraid?

Misato:
It’s not something kids should do.

Asuka:
Okay, here goes…

Asuka:
You don’t understand anything! Stay away from me!

Shinji:
(Hand twitching) … I do understand.

Asuka:
No you don’t, you IDIOT!
(Asuka kicks Shinji – Shinji’s hand convulses)
You really think you understand me!? You think that you can help me?
That is so ARROGANT! You couldn’t possibly understand me!!

Shinji:
How can I understand… If you don’t say anything?
You don’t say anything… You don’t talk to me…
How can I understand you? It’s IMPOSSIBLE!!

Rei:
Ikari, did you try to understand?

Shinji (sulking):
I tried…

(blue image of Shinji in Asuka’s sickroom from ‘Air’)

Asuka:
Idiot! I ‘know’ about your jerk-off fantasies of me.
Do it again like usual… I’ll even stand here and watch.

(Rei, Asuka and Shinji inside an empty train – Asuka standing over Shinji)

Asuka:
If you can’t be all mine, then I don’t need you!

Shinji:
Then, be nice to me…

Asuka/Misato/Rei:
We are nice to you.

Shinji:
LIARS!! You’re all just hiding behind a smile!
You just want to keep things ambiguous!

Rei:
Because the truth hurts us all… Because it’s very, very distressing.

Shinji:
But ambiguity only makes me insecure.³

Rei:
That’s just an excuse…

Shinji:
But it makes me afraid… Afraid that I won’t be needed again someday.
It makes me uneasy! It worries me! Let me hear your voice!
Interact with me!!
Care about me!!!

(Shinji and Asuka in Misato’s apartment – Asuka sitting dejectedly at table)

Shinji:
I want to help you in some way… and to be with you forever.

Asuka:
Then, don’t do anything.
Don’t come near me anymore… Because all you ever do is hurt me.

Shinji:
Asuka, help me! You’re… you’re the only one that can!

Asuka:
Liar…
(Shinji cringes)
To you, anybody will do!
(Asuka gets up from table and backs Shinji up against the wall)
You’re afraid of Misato and the First… and of your mother and father, too!

Shinji: Asuka…

Asuka(cont’d):
You’re only using me as an escape – because that’s the easiest way not to get hurt!

Shinji:
Asuka, help me!

Asuka:
Because that’s the easiest way not to get hurt!

Shinji (desperately):
Please, help me!

Asuka (angrily):
You’ve never really liked anyone!

(Asuka shoves Shinji, who crumples to the floor, taking the coffee pot with him)

Asuka (angrily):
You’re all you have! But you’ve never even learned to like yourself!!
(staring disdainfully down at Shinji lying helplessly amidst the spilt coffee)
How pathetic…

Shinji (weakly – getting to his feet):
Help me… Somebody… Somebody help me…
Help me… Help me… Me… Help ME!!
(throws the table aside)
Don’t leave me alone! Don’t abandon me! Don’t kill me!
(picks up a chair and throws it at Asuka’s feet)

Asuka (coldly):
… No…

(Shinji strangles Asuka – Komm Susser Tod (Come Sweet Death) begins to play)

SCENE: Third Impact
(Psychological scene – Flashing, random shots: crayon drawings of death, fish in a bucket under the sun, a dog lying dead on a street, fish head in a jar…)
(Flashing screen text: “Evangelism”, “Dead Sea Scrolls”, “Shito”, Various episode titles from the TV series, etc.)
———————————–

Shinji:
Nobody understands me.

Rei:
You didn’t understand anything.

Shinji:
I thought it was supposed to be a world without unpleasantness… without uncertainity.

Rei:
Because you thought that everyone else was like you.

Shinji:
Betrayed! You’ve betrayed my feelings!!

Rei:
You’ve misunderstood from the start. You simply assumed without asking.

Shinji:
Nobody wants me. So, everybody just die.

Rei:
Then, what are those hands for?

Shinji:
Nobody cares whether I exist or not… Nothing will change.
So, everybody just die.

Rei:
Then, what is that heart for?

Shinji:
It’d be better if I wasn’t here either. So I should just die, too.

Rei:
Then, why are you here?

(Shinji as a child, crying with a large travel bag next to him)

Shinji:
Is it okay for me to be here?

(Screen text: “Silence”)

Shinji (screaming):
NOOOOOOOOOOO!!

———————————–
SCENE: NERV Command Center
———————————–

Makoto:
Pilot’s response has infinitely approached zero!

Shigeru:
Eva series and Geofront passing through the E layer! -And still rising!

(Shot of Black Moon rising)

MAGI announcement:
Current altitude 220,000 km. Entering F layer.

Makoto:
All Eva units – still active!

Shigeru:
The Anti-AT Field from Lilith… it’s expanding further! It’s materializing!

(The earth’s surface under the Black Moon turns white spreading outwards and Lilith-Rei emerges, cupping the Black Moon in her hands)

Makoto:
Anti-AT Field critical limit exceeded!

Shigeru:
No…! If this continues, individual life-forms will be unable to maintain their separate entities!

(Lilith-Rei spreads her wings)

Fuyutsuki:
The Chamber of Guf (Hall of Souls) has been unsealed…
Has the door to the world’s beginning and end finally opened?

(Souls begin to gather around the Black Moon)

(Countless Reis begin to turn people into LCL)

Rei(s):
The world is overflowing with sadness.
People are surrounded by emptiness… And loneliness has filled their hearts.

(In the Command Center, Makoto is dissolved into LCL by a smiling apparition of Misato… Shigeru dissolves while cowering under the console trying to escape from multiple Reis)

Fuyutsuki (smiling at Yui floating above him like an angel):
Ikari, did you finally meet Yui, too? (dissolves into LCL)

Maya (hands trembling over keyboard):
AT Fields… Everyone’s AT Fields are disappearing.
Is this the answer? Is this what I was searching for?
(Ritsuko appears- quickly types on Maya’s laptop)
(gasp) Dr. Akagi…!?

Ritsuko:
Maya…

Maya:
Ritsuko! Ritsuko! Ritsuko! Ritsuko! Ahh!

(Maya dissolves into LCL – as her dismembered hand flies across the screen, the words “I need you.” are visible on the PC display)

SCENE: SEELE monoliths vanish one after another
———————————–

SEELE 01:
The beginning and the end are as one.
Good… Everything is as it should be…

(Keel appears… and then dissolves into LCL, leaving behind the mechanical remains of his lower body)

SCENE: Gendo lying on floor in Terminal Dogma
———————————–

Gendo:
I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long… To finally be with you again, Yui.
When I’m with Shinji, I only hurt him. So, it’s better that I do nothing.

Yui:
So, you were afraid of Shinji.

Gendo:
I don’t believe that I can be loved by others… I’m not worthy of love.

Kaworu:
You’re just running away. You simply reject the world before you get hurt.

Yui:
Afraid of the shapeless, invisible barriers that separate people…

Rei:
You just closed your heart to others.

Gendo:
So, this is my retribution. Forgive me… Shinji.

(Demon-like EVA-01 bites Gendo in half… Rei II picks up Gendo’s fallen glasses. The three clones of Rei stand together.)

(Eva series impale their cores on the Lance replicas with gasps of ecstasy… Countless crosses spring up as a red wave speeds across the earth’s surface… Souls flow from the Earth to the Black Moon and then into Lilith-Rei’s hands… An eye appears in Lilith-Rei’s forehead into which the EVA-01/Lance cross plunges itself and disappears…)

SCENE: Inside Lilith-Rei – Shinji hears laughing voices and sees countless spirit-Reis flowing towards a red core
———————————–

Shinji:
(gasp)Ayanami… Rei?

(Inside Shinji’s mind – Flashing psychological scenes)

Random voices (Asuka, Misato, etc.):
I hate you. I wouldn’t be caught dead with you! Don’t get me wrong… Do you really think I could ever like you? You have nothing to do with my life anymore. Get away from me! … and don’t call me anymore! Stubborn bastard… Don’t follow me around anymore. Your type makes me sick! I’m sorry… (laughter) We’re nothing more than friends. Annoying bastard… Why don’t you learn to give up? There’s no way I’d ever go back to you. I HATE YOU! Go away! (laughter) It’d be better if you’d never been born. Dammit, get away from me! I hate you!
You’re a pain in the ass! (laughter)

(Asuka’s voice) Wimp…

(Shinji, lying on his back)

Misato (over Shinji):
If it’s that painful, you can stop.

Rei (over Shinji):
If you really don’t like it, you can run away.

Misato (voice):
Do you want to be at ease? To feel at peace?
Do you want to become one with me?
To have our bodies and souls… become one.

Asuka (voice):
But, if I have to be with you, I’d rather die!

(Empty theater – Jesus Bleibet Meine Freude (Jesus, Joy of Man’s Desiring) begins to play… Real-life scenes of urban Tokyo)

Shinji (voice):
Hey…

Misato (voice):
What?

Shinji (voice):
What are dreams?

Misato (voice):
Dreams?

Rei:
Yes, dreams.

(Packed theater)

(Screen text: Do you feel good?)

(Three girls standing still in crowd)

Shinji (voice):
I don’t understand… I don’t really understand reality.

Rei (voice):
So, you can’t understand the gap between other’s reality and your own truth.

Shinji (voice):
I don’t know where to find happiness.

Rei (voice):
So, you can only find happiness in your dreams.

(Crowded street- camera focuses on three individuals; dressed as Misato, Rei, and Asuka)

Shinji (voice):
Then, this isn’t reality… Because no one is here.

Rei (voice):
Yes, it’s a dream.

Shinji (voice):
So, I’m not here either.

Rei (voice):
You were trying to remake reality with convenient fantasies.

Shinji (voice):
Is that wrong?

Rei (voice):
You were using fabrications to escape from reality.

Shinji (voice):
Can’t I dream alone?

Rei (voice):
That would not be a dream. It would just be compensating for reality.

(Packed theater -> empty theater)

Shinji (voice):
Then… where is my dream?

Rei (voice):
It is the continuation of reality.

Shinji (voice):
Where is… my reality?

Rei (voice):
It is at the end of your dream.

(

SCENE: Blood/LCL gushes from Lilith-Rei’s neck as she leans backwards
Shinji and Rei merged together in the sea of LCL
———————————–

Shinji:
Ayanami… where are we?

Rei:
This is the sea of LCL… The primordial soup of life.
A world without AT Fields… without your own shape.
An ambiguous world where it is impossible to tell where you end and other people start.
A fragile world where you exist everywhere, and thus exist nowhere.

Shinji:
Have I died?

Rei:
No, everything has just been joined into one.
This is the world you have been hoping for… your world.

Shinji (releasing Misato’s cross from his left hand):
But… this isn’t right. I don’t think this is right.

Rei:
If you wish once more for the existence of others, the barriers of the heart will separate everyone once more… And the fear of other people will begin again.

Shinji:
That’s all right…
(disengages Rei from him and clasps her hand)
Thank you.

(Shinji and Rei, Shinji’s head lying in Rei’s lap)

Shinji:
I feel that there were only hateful things there.
So I’m sure it was okay to run away.
But there was nothing good in the place I ran to, either.
After all, I didn’t exist there… which is the same as no one existing.

Kaworu:
Is it okay for AT Fields to hurt you and others once more?

Shinji:
I don’t mind. But, what are you two within my heart?

Rei:
Hope. The hope that people might be able to understand one another.

Kaworu:
And the words ‘I love you’.

Shinji:
But that’s just pretending – a self-intoxicating belief… like a prayer.
It can’t possibly last forever.
Sooner or later I’ll be betrayed… And they’ll leave me.
Still… I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real.

SCENE: Shinji rejects Human Instrumentality, Lilith-Rei collapses backwards and her wings vanish… EVA-01 breaks out from Lilith-Rei’s eye and grows wings… The Black Moon divides into sections and explodes, showering Lilith-Rei with LCL which falls to Earth and spreads outward…)

Kaworu:
Reality is in an unfamiliar place, and dreams are within reality.

Rei:
And the truth is within your heart.

(Lilith-Rei’s body begins to fall apart)

Kaworu:
For it is the hearts of people that create their appearance.

Rei:
And new images will change peoples’ hearts and appearances.
Images… the power of imagination… The power to create your own future, and to make time flow.

Kaworu:
But people must act of their own free will, or nothing will change at all.

Rei:
So you must find your lost self on your own…
Even if you lose your own words, or become lost in others’ words.

(EVA-01 grasps and splits the Lance of Longinus… The Lances impaling the Eva series burst and disappear)

Rei:
Anyone can return to human form as long as they can imagine themselves
in their own heart.

(The Eva series go silent and fall to Earth… Crosses rise into the heavens)

Yui (voice):
Don’t worry.
All living things have the ability to return to their original form… and the heart to go on living.
Anywhere can be heaven as long as you have the will to live.
After all, you’re alive… and you can find the chance to achieve happiness anywhere.

(Rei appears before the now silent EVA-01… EVA-01, the Lance, and millions of crosses continue to ascend into space)

Yui (voice):
As long as the Sun, the Moon and the Earth exist, everything will be all right.

SCENE: Water drop- Yui caressing Shinji’s cheek
———————————–

Yui:
So, you’ll be okay now?

Shinji:
I still don’t know where to find happiness…
But I’ll continue to think about whether it’s good to be here… whether it was good to have been born.
But in the end, it’s just realizing the obvious over and over again.
Because I am myself.

(Shinji emerges from the sea of LCL… Lilith-Rei’s head splits)

Shinji:
But mother… what will you do?

(Flashback to 13 years ago – Fuyutsuki, Yui and infant-Shinji)

Fuyutsuki:
Humans create Evangelion to copy God… Is this our true goal?

Yui:
Yes. Humans can only live on this planet, but Evangelion can live forever… together with the human soul that dwells within it.

(EVA-01 and the Lance of Longinus float in space)

Even after 5 billion years, when the Earth, the Moon, and even the Sun have disappeared, it will still exist as long as even one person still lives. It will be very lonely, but as long as that one person still lives…

Fuyutsuki:
It will be the eternal proof that humankind has existed…

Shinji:
Good-bye, mother.
