* Now for the allegations about Shamshel and Leliel: note their shapes and manner of death. Shamshel is, let's be honest here, [[FreudWasRight a giant penis]], and dies when Shinji, another male, stabs him in the Core (i.e. castrates him). Leliel is somewhat more subtle in shape, more blatant in death: she is a black hole in the ground, ending at a mostly zebra-striped ball in the sky, i.e. a womb. She dies when Shinji, here a child, [[{{Gorn}} rips his way out of her in a horrifying parody of c-section.]] Again, ''he'' is the Angel of Day, ''she'' is the Angel of Night. Their forms and manner of death are complementary, something most people miss because of the episode gap, which only exists because Israfel couldn't resist the ShoutOut.

* The entry plug/Eva relationship: once you figure out that [[spoiler: Eva-01 contain Yui's soul]], it's hard to avoid the idea that, by piloting an Eva, Shinji is living out a giant [[FreudWasRight Oedipal metaphor]]. This becomes even more obvious when, during his introspective experiences, Shinji decides that he pilots an Eva because only piloting makes him feel needed.

** Speaking of Cruel Angel's Thesis, if you freezeframe through the latter half of the opening, you will clearly see an image of Kaworu. Yes, you can see this even in the first episode. The guy was in the anime since the beginning.

*A lighter example, but in 2.0 Kaji takes the children to an aquarium to see what the oceans looked like before second impact. Unfortunately, this involves going through decontamination, which involves getting blasted with hot/cold air (whether it was hot or cold I'm not sure), washed silly with a high-pressure shower, and plunged into an icy tank of water...3 times! Now this sounds like torture...until you realize that in episode 13, Asuka states that she went through decontamination 17 times! If decontamination was anything like it was in 2.0, that means that Shinji, Asuka, and Rei must have nerves and lungs of steel.

** A catholic priest explained to you the difference between love and desire? [[{{Squick}} ...And how did this come up?]]
*** As someone who learned to hate the Church from going at a catholic high school, I can confirm it's not ''necessarily'' squicky because it's what they're supposed to do: love everybody equally and explain (and ''show'') people how to recognize it from desire and infatuations. The {{Squick}} comes out only when they don't understand (or don't care of) the difference between love and desire.

** Ignoring all that, it wasn't the only Angel killed by mundane weapons (remember Gaghiel got exploded by a couple of battleships in its mouth), and one was killed without any Eva involvement (Ireul). It isn't that Evas are necessary to kill Angels, its just that they are the only things that could do it reliably. The AT field can take a lot of punishment, but they aren't invincible.

** The [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Rebuild movies]] are shaping up to be a [[StealthSequel full-blown continuation]] of the original series after ''The End''. The ''very first shot'' of 1.0 is of a red sea not unlike [=EoE's=] sea of LCL. The moon has a blood-red streak not unlike the one Lilith sprayed in [=EoE=]. If Kaworu's line "this time" is anything more than a simple MythologyGag, the title ''Rebuild'' may very well be literal. The final movie's titles ''3.0+1.0'' and '':||'' imply that Alpha and Omega are to come full circle, and repeat to the beginning where it all ends. Stay tuned for MindScrew come the final episode.

* The ending to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is [[GainaxEnding so weird that you might not get it at first]]. But when you do... [[spoiler: AssimilationPlot was originally called {{Instrumentality}}.]]
