Plot Outline: Plot Outline:
When the Angels start attacking the planet Earth in the year 2015, only a handful of 14-year-old EVA pilots are able to stop them. The weak-minded Shinji Ikari suddenly finds himself forced to pilot EVA-01, a giant organic mecha, designed and constructed by NERV, that is the only thing that can stop the Angels.

Episode 21 "He was aware that he was still a child.""
Deputy Commander Kozo Fuyutsuki is kidnapped and interrogated by Seele, who are outraged that in its last battle Unit 01 absorbed the S² engine from an Angel into its body, so that it no longer requires an external power source and can now function indefinitely. Meanwhile, Kaji goes AWOL to try to find out the truth about Nerv. As Fuyutsuki is interrogated by Seele, he recounts in flashbacks how he first met Gendo, Yui, the dark events surrounding Second Impact, and how Nerv and the Evangelion project were born. Flashbacks also reveal the history of Misato, Ritsuko, and Rei.

Episode 22 "Don't Be."
After being defeated yet again by an Angel, Asuka's synchronization ratio continues to drop, affecting her ability to pilot Unit 02. Flashbacks reveal Asuka's tragic childhood, which shaped her current abrasive personality. A new Angel, Arael, appears in Earth orbit, well outside the range of any Earth-based weaponry, including the Evangelions. Asuka is told that she will be Rei's backup for the confrontation with the Angel. Infuriated, she launches herself and confronts Arael on her own, however Arael uses a telepathic attack which forces Asuka to relive traumatic events from her past, causing such mental distress that Asuka completely loses synchronization and Unit 02 shuts down. Gendo orders Rei to go to Terminal Dogma, retrieve the Lance of Longinus, and use it against the Angel. The Lance succeeds in penetrating Arael's AT field and destroys it, but it achieves escape velocity and enters a lunar orbit. Asuka is again angered by her defeat, worsened by her hatred of Rei.

Episode 23 "Rei III"
Following the last Angel's assault on her mind, Asuka sinks into clinical depression. The next Angel, Armisael attacks, and attempts to merge itself with Unit 00, causing it to make contact with Rei's mind, in the same cases with Shinji and Asuka. In order to save Shinji, Rei self-destructs Unit 00 in order to destroy Armisael. Rei is revealed to be recovered after a near-death experience. Misato forces Ritsuko to reveal to her, as well as Shinji, the dark secrets of Nerv and the true nature of Rei.
