SCENE: Misato and Shinji in parking lot- Misato
listening to enemy movements on a dead soldier's 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.
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!
Help me, Asuka... Help me...
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!!
No... Let me die. I don't want to do anything.
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...
Forget about here! Give top priority to isolating the Terminal Dogma!
Everything else has been destroyed...
Why don't they just blow up the Command Center, too?
I'm sure they'd like to take us out in a single blow, but the original MAGI system is
right below us.
They want the MAGI system intact, huh?
But we're defenseless against BC (biological and chemical) weaponry.
If they use those, we're in trouble.
N2 weapons, too...
(As if by coincidence, an N2 warhead drops, opening up the
Speak of the devil!
Isn't that a bit extreme!?
Playing a bit rough, aren't we?
(Numerous missiles strike the Geofront directly)
Why do they want the Evas so badly!?
SCENE: Misato and Shinji in Misato's car - Scrapped
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)
The phone lines have gone dead.
(Screen text: Nagano Prefecture, New Tokyo-2
Prime Minister's Residence, No. 3 State Office)
Yes, sir. Ballistic warhead impact was confirmed three minutes ago.
The Instrumentality Project that NERV was secretly researching...
Initiating Third Impact to annihilate mankind...
The mere thought sends shivers down my spine.
Humans must be the only creatures able to despise their own kind.
All that's left is to take care of the NERV headquarters facilities.
Do you want Germany or China to undertake the re-development?
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.
And the red unit?
Found in the underground lake at a depth of 70 meters. The pilot's status is
SCENE: Asuka curled up in the fetal position inside
EVA-02 Entry Plug
(Shots of depth charges firing and exploding around
(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
I don't want to die... I don't want to DIE!!
(Flashback to Asuka as a child with mother)
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
Did we get it!?
(EVA-02 emerges and starts fighting)
I understand now... The meaning of the AT Field.
It's always protecting me! Always watching over me!
(speaking) Always... always together!
(Misato and Shinji in Misato's car)
Maya (on radio):
EVA-02 has activated!
Asuka's okay! She's alive!
The cable! That thing's power cable!
Concentrate all fire power on the cable!
(Cable is severed)
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
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
The Eva series!?
They've been completed?
(NERV Command Center)
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)
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!
Erst! (German: "That's one!")
SCENE: Misato and Shinji - Emergency Elevator
Here it is.
(Shots fire... Misato is hit, but they enter the shaft and
the door closes)
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.
(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.
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!
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
But you're... you're not me!
You don't understand anything about ME!!
(Misato slams Shinji against the gate)
So what if I'm not you!?
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)
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!
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)
It's a promise.
(Misato kisses Shinji deeply)
That's a grownup kiss.
We'll do the rest when you get back...
(Misato pushes the stunned Shinji into the elevator and
If I knew it would end this way...
I would've done like Asuka said...
And changed the carpet...
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
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
I've been waiting for you.
(Ritsuko stands and draws a gun... Asuka fighting... Back
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
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)
Ritsuko Akagi, I truly... (Gendo's lips move, but you can't hear him.)
Ritsuko (surprised, but then smiles):
(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
What's happening outside?
Less than a minute before EVA-02 reaches its operational limit!
At this rate, Asuka will...!
(Asuka fighting the Eva series)
I can't lose!
(Shinji sitting in front of EVA-01)
Asuka (on speaker):
Not with Mama watching me!
(Back to Asuka fighting)
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)
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)
Internal power source depleted... Operational limit reached. EVA-02... down.
What!? The destroyed... Eva series!?
(Eva series reactivates)
The Eva series have reactivated!
Are they're going to finish her off!?
(Eva series flock over EVA-02 and rip it apart like
(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.)
This is...? EVA-02!?
(Geofront, where EVA-02 is being ripped apart)
I'll kill you... Kill... kill... kill you... Kill... I'll kill you... I'll kill you all...
(EVA-02 attempts to reactivate)
(NERV Command Center)
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 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...!
But I can't pilot Eva... There's nothing I can do...
(EVA-01 breaks free from the Bakelite and clutches at
(Terminal Dogma - Rei and 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?
It's the devil himself!!
(Shinji subdued inside EVA-01 entry plug)
(Shinji sees the mangled remains of EVA-02 and screams)
Shinji: AHHHHHH!!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
