Episode 2: Unfamiliar Ceiling / The
Shinji is looking outside the Hospital. He left his bed and is now standing in the corridor, looking outside. He looks at his arm. Unlike the feeling he had earlier, it seems to be in perfect shape. He doesn’t really understand what happened. This is also mentioned by Ritsuko, when she informs Misato about Shinji’s condition. They are both downtown, where cranes are transporting huge guns through the city. Although Shinji’s mind is a bit messed up by the stress, his physical condition is alright.
Not much later Misato comes to pick up
Shinji. When they want to get on an elevator, they walk into Gendo. Shinji
doesn’t even want to look at his father; the elevator then closes and
continues to a higher floor.
After dinner, Misato suggests that
Shinji take a bath, since it’s good for cleaning both body and soul.
Shinji kind agrees he could use a bath, and after getting undressed,
he opens the door to the bathing room, to have his first run in with
Pen-Pen, Misato’s pet penguin. Shinji didn’t expect anything like
this, and butt-naked he runs into the living room, and after Misato
tells him what Pen-Pen is (and notifies Shinji of the fan-service
his currently giving away), Pen-pen goes into his fridge and Shinji
goes into the bathing room.
At NERV headquarters, Ritsuko is talking
with Gendo about Rei Ayanami, and Evangelion unit 00. Both Rei and the
Evangelion will be active within 20 days, according Gendo. Ritsuko says she
feels sorry for the children. Gendo however says that the children are the
only ones capable of piloting the Evangelions. Later that evening, Misato
talks to Ritsuko. She doubts Shinji will ever pilot the Evangelion again,
after all he’s been through. She’s afraid she can’t handle Shinji. Ritsuko
tells her it was Misato’s own idea to take Shinji in. Misato screams she
knows that, and slams the phone down. She thinks to herself: “I was thinking
of Shinji as a tool, I’m as shameless as Ritsuko. We destroyed the Angel…
Why can’t I be happy about it?”
This is not something that would stop a
berserker in its tracks, and the Evangelion runs towards the angel again.
Fuyutski comments that it looks like they’ve won, but then the angel throws
up its AT-Field. Misato says that, as long as the angel keeps that field up,
the Evangelion won’t be able to come near it. The Evangelion seems to have
something else in mind though, and after restoring its arm that was broken
earlier, it expands an AT-Field of its own, eroding the angels AT-Field.
With a swift movement the Eva tears the
Angels AT-Field apart. The angel tries to blast the Evangelion, but it’s no
use. The unit grabs the angel’s arms, and twists so they both break. After
that, it kicks the angel back, jumps on top of it, and starts bashing the
Angel’s red Core. After hitting it a few times, the core starts to crack. It
seems the Angel had enough of it. With a loud cry, it jumps up and engulfs
the Evangelion. The core lights up, and a few seconds later both the Angel
and the Eva disappear in a huge explosion. It seems that in a desperation
attack, the angel self destructed in an attempt to destroy its opponent.
