In Tokyo-3, a NERV operation headed by Misato and Ritsuko cleans up the city and recovers the EVA after the prior day's battle. Misato notices how the government has already gotten the media to cover up the event. While the cleanup and "sanitation" occurs, Gendou holds a holographic meeting with NERV's benefactors: the Human Instrumentality Committee, a somewhat clandestine group headed by a Chairman Keel Lorenz, operating under the United Nations. The whole group discusses the reappearance of the Angels fifteen years after Second Impact and expresses their concerns toward the economic costs of the operation (as well as its publicity). Keel rebukes the appearance of the Angels as an excuse for letting the Human Instrumentality Project fall behind schedule, and orders Gendou to treat it as his highest priority. The Committee excuses Gendou from the rest of the meeting so it can privately consider NERV's appeal for more funding, but Keel takes a moment to let Gendou know "there can be no turning back", to which Gendou replies that he knows mankind has no time left.

As the two of them sit down for what amounts to dinner in her home, Misato opens a beer and completely drops her professional attitude. She berates Shinji for his withdrawn attitude, then tells him that he's fine the way he is, which only furthers the boy's confusion. After distributing house chores via rock-paper-scissors (with Shinji losing more than winning), Misato suggests Shinji should take a bath to relax a bit. Inside the bathroom, Shinji is surprised by discovering a penguin in the bathtub...which causes him to panic, run into the kitchen completely naked, and babble about the thing he saw in the bathroom. As the penguin waddles past Shinji, Misato introduces the creature as Pen-Pen, the third occupant of the apartment. Shinji can only stand dumbfounded as he watches Pen-Pen move through the room and enter the large refrigerator, which looks like a miniature apartment on the inside. Misato turns back to Shinji and tells him that he should really consider putting on some pants. When Shinji realizes he doesn't have any clothes on, he blushes all over and retreats to the bathroom. This prompts Misato to wonder if she's acting too flamboyant.

At the hospital, Shinji wanders around in a daze, confused about the previous day's events. Another patient is wheeled past him; he notices that it is Rei, who stares blankly back at him, before she disappears down the corridor. As Misato and Ritsuko drive back to the Geofront, the latter gets a phone call about Shinji's awakening. Misato asks about his well-being; while she receives assurance about Shinji's physical health, she worries about what impact the last day will have on his psyche. As Ritsuko drops Misato off, the latter says that humanity might stand a chance against the Angels. "You're always such an optimist," says Ritsuko. "Your attitude does make me feel a little more at ease."

"You're always such an optimist," says Ritsuko. "Your attitude does make me feel "You plan on defeating the Angels? As optimistic as ever," Ritusko tells her. "Hey, sometimes you need a little more at ease."
wishful thinking just to keep on living," answers Misato. Ritsuko admits to Misato that her optimism is pretty refreshing, before driving off.

* SceneryCensor: As Shinji runs into the kitchen naked after being surprised by Pen-Pen in the bathroom, his "naughty bits" are hidden by a beer can on the table in the foreground. During the conversation that ensues, Misato picks up the can, revealing that Shinji's modesty is still defended by a much smaller container clearly labeled "toothpicks".

The episode starts where the previous one ended: Shinji, inside Unit-01, faces the attacking Angel in the streets of Tokyo-3. Unsure of what to do, Misato tells Shinji that the EVA will perform the actions he thinks of, so he should start off with the simple act of walking. He manages to take a feeble, yet successful, first step -- but when goes for another, he loses his balance. Unit-01 trips and lands face-first; before Shinji can get the EVA on its feet, the Angel advances. Frozen with fear, Shinji fails to resist as the creature picks Unit-01 up by the head and breaks its left arm. This act somehow transfers an immense pain to Shinji's own arm, and he panics as a result. The Angel starts pounding on the EVA's head with a unique energy attack; Shinji again feels the pain of every single blow. The Angel's attack eventually penetrates the EVA's casing and sends it reeling backwards, the biomechanical being losing blood at a significant rate. Shinji loses consciousness, all readings on him go blank, and a panicked Misato calls out his name.

When NERV re-establishes contact to the cockpit, they confirm Shinji as both alive and conscious. He looks around in a state of shock and disbelief -- and notices the reflection of Unit-01 in a nearby building. The EVA's damaged helmet slides off and reveals the injured head underneath. Unit-01's spontaneously regenerates in front of Shinji's eyes, and a large green eye looks back at him. The sight makes him scream in terror.
