** What's even worse is what's finally confirmed in that very episode; the whole reason Asuka is JerkAss and the whole reason she uses "doll" like it's an epithet on par with the n-word [[spoiler:is because part of her mother Kyouko's soul was sucked into Unit-02, leaving poor Kyouko clinically insane and incapable of loving her own daughter, treating a little rag doll like the actual Asuka. Kyouko then hangs herself on the very day that Asuka is chosen to be the pilot of the very robot that, without her knowing, drove her mother insane; she enters the hospital room while happily babbling about how she will save the world in the EVA 02, only to find that Kyouko has hung herself.]]

* Kaji's final message to Misato is utterly heart-wrenching.
--> '''Kaji:''' Katsuragi, it's me. I've probably put you through a lot of trouble by the time you're listening to this. I'm sorry. Tell Ritchan I said I'm sorry too. Also, since I've troubled you so much anyway, there's this flower I've been growing... It'd make me happy if you'd water it for me. Shinji knows where it is. Katsuragi, the truth is with you. Go forward without any hesitation. If I ever get to see you again, [[CanNotSpitItOut I'll say the words I wasn't able to say eight years ago]]. Bye.
** Even more poignant is one fan-theory that the words he wanted to say weren't just "I Love You" but asking her to marry him.

** One of the unused endings "Last B" is further depressing: Shinji is lying on the beach holding onto someone's white arm. He says "I'll never see them again. It's better to think of it this way. I'm still alive, so I'll keep on living." [[HopeSpot He squeezes the hand harder and then sees Rei]] (like in the episode and Last A). We eventually see that there is nobody lying near Shinji, just a white arm without the rest of the body. There [[LastOfHisKind is no one around]] for the possibility to make him feel a sense of worth to someone. This ending ultimately turns the series into a full-on ShootTheShaggyDog ending, even when compared to the existing ending.

** Episode 4 seems to be one that's ignored. After at least a ''week or so'' after enduring psychological trauma of piloting Unit 01 and the fact [[spoiler: he had been suffering SanitySlippage after being roughed up by Toji and having to disobey Misato in order to defeat the Fourth Angel, Shinji runs off and is later on found by NERV officials where he's confronted by Misato over whether or not he wants to pilot Unit 01 ''despite'' showing reluctance over it]]. While [[spoiler: Shinji gives a reasonable reason that he has to out of feeling he's the only one that can't, Misato calls him out on it and tells him if he doesn't want to pilot it, he can leave]]. ''Ouch''.
*** Worse is the [[spoiler: frustrated groan Mistato gives after saying that. Was she saying it out of frustration at Shinji...or saying it out not knowing what to say to him? Or worse, is it because she felt horrible for what she said to him?]]

* Misato bidding farewell to Pen-Pen was not exactly a Tear Jerker, but it was sad to [[ShooOutTheClowns see the resident comic relief penguin go]]. And then, depending on which finale (original 25-26 or ''End'') you believe is the true ending, things either got worse or near-infinitely worse.
