  6.  
  7. Misato stands before Ikari and Fuyutsuki.
  8.  
  9.         MISATO
  10.         (Looking shocked) The Fifth Child…… really!?
  11.  
  12.         IKARI
  13.         Yes, the fifth candidate will be arriving shortly. Overwrite Second's personal data in Unit 02 with the Fifth's.
  14.  
  15.         MISATO
  16.         But, what about Asuka……?
  17.  
  18.         IKARI
  19.         We can't keep useless items lying around forever. Send her back to Germany when you have an opportunity. That is all.
  20.  
  21.         MISATO
  22.         ……
  23.  
  24.         IKARI
  25.         Do you have something to say to me?
  26.  
  27.         MISATO
  28.         No…… Excuse me.
  29.  
  30.         FUYUTSUKI
  31.         The Fifth Child. He's probably a SEELE spy.
  32.  
  33.         IKARI  
  34.         He's coming here directly, bypassing the Marduk mechanism.
  35.  
  36.         FUYUTSUKI
  37.         They seem to be quite impatient now.
  38.  
  39.         IKARI
  40.         Let's watch and wait for a bit. According to the Dead Sea Scrolls there's still one Angel left.
  41.  
  42.  
  43.  
  44.         THE LAST ANGEL
  45.

  48. A WESTERN-QIN STYLE PAINTING OF A RURAL EUROPEAN LANDSCAPE (ASUKA'S DREAM)
  49.  
  50. Asuka on her way home from school (age 12), her eyes light up as she runs home.
  51.  
  52. INT. HOME
  53.  
  54. Asuka bursts in, a big smile on her face.
  55.  
  56.         ASUKA
  57.         Mama! I was chosen! I was chosen as an elite pilot to protect humanity! To protect the world!
  58.  
  59. She says, placing her bag on the sofa and walking about the house.
  60.  
  61.         ASUKA
  62.         It's a secret. But can tell you Mama! Everyone's so nice to me. So it won't be lonely.
  63.  
  64. But Asuka's mother doesn't respond.
  65. We just hear the voices coming from the TV.
  66.  
  67.         ASUKA
  68.         (With a slightly anxious expression) So, it doesn't matter that Papa's not here. We won't be lonely.
  69.  
  70. Asuka's mother is nowhere to be seen.
  71.  
  72.         ASUKA
  73.         Hey, Mama, where are you? Mama! Mama!
  74.  
  75. Suddenly a THUMP THUMP THUMP! Comes a knock at the door.
  76.  
  77.         MISATO
  78.         Asuka! Asuka!
  79.  
  80.  
  81. INT. NERV HQ, GEOFRONT, RESIDENTIAL SECTOR ASUKA's ROOM
  82.  
  83. The door opens with a BAM! Misato crashes in with emergency medical personnel.
  84.  
  85.         MISATO
  86.         Asuka……!
  87.  
  88. Asuka is curled up in a corner of the room, hugging her knees. Her eyes are blank and sunken, her cheeks are hollow, her lips pale. She barely resembles herself.
  89. A male paramedic checks her eyes and tongue with a pen light.
  90.  
  91.         PARAMEDIC
  92.         It doesn't seem like she's been eating or drinking. She's very dehydrated. She needs to be hospitalized immediately.
  93.  
  94.         MISATO
  95.         Asuka! Do you want to die or something!?
  96.  
  97.         ASUKA
  98.         (Crackely) There's no reason for me to be here anymore…… There's no reason for me to go on living……
  99.  
  100.         MISATO
  101.         ––
  102.  
  103. A stretcher is brought in and Asuka is put on it.
  104.  
  105.  
  106. INT. NERV HQ - HALLWAY
  107.  
  108. The stretcher with Asuka on it comes out of room #02.
  109. A bit after, Misato follows.
  110. Misato notices Shinji standing in the hall.
  111.  
  112.         SHINJI
  113.         What's wrong?
  114.  
  115.         MISATO
  116.         Nothing. Asuka's just not feeling very well. She'll be okay.
  117.  
  118.         SHINJI
  119.         Oh……
  120.  
  121.         MISATO
  122.         Bye––
  123.  
  124. And Misato leaves, following the stretcher.
  125.  
  126.  
  127. INT. CAGE
  128.  
  129. Unit 01 submerged in coolant.
  130.  
  131.  
  132. INT. UNIT 01 - ENTRY PLUG
  133.  
  134. Shinji appears to be in low spirits.
  135.  
  136.         SHINJI
  137.         (MONO) Nothing…… huh. Misato didn't tell me the truth. I wonder what happened to Asuka. And Ayanami……
  138.  
  139. Insert –– The Reis in the test tube all look toward us at once.
  140.  
  141.         SHINJI
  142.         (Sighing) Mom, what is Dad doing?
  143.  
  144. Unit 01 doesn't answer.
  145.  
  146.  
  147. INT. SPECIAL SOLITARY CELL
  148.  
  149. Ritsuko is bound in a small room of iron bars.
  150. She's bound by several leather straps, her once commanding expression is nowhere to be seen. It's almost like her soul has left her body.
  151. Thunk, thunk, thunk…… Eventually we hear footsteps coming from the hall.
  152. Ikari's figure appears in the faint light.
  153.  
  154.         RITSUKO
  155.         (Still blankly) My cat died…… The one I left in my grandmother's care…… I never really took care of it, but…… all of a sudden…… I'll never see it again.
  156.  
  157.         IKARI
  158.         Professor Akagi, why did you destroy the dummy plug?
  159.  
  160. Ritsuko doesn't respond, she just looks ahead, with a faint smile on her lips.
  161.  
  162.         IKARI
  163.         I'll ask again. Why?
  164.  
  165.         RITSUKO
  166.         Because you're a shitty lay. Plus, I didn't destroy the dummy system. I destroyed Rei……
  167.  
  168.         IKARI
  169.         What?
  170.  
  171.         RITSUKO
  172.         Those things aren't human. They're just human shaped objects. So they didn't die. They were destroyed. Rei is just your plaything. I never could became your plaything though……
  173.  
  174.         IKARI
  175.         ––
  176.  
  177.         RITSUKO
  178.         I wonder, Commander, did you come here because your new toy isn't working out so well? Since a familiar toy is here. Just do what you will. I'll do whatever. But, I'm sure I can't compete with the playful spirit of that doll of yours.
  179.  
  180.         IKARI
  181.         You're a disappointment.
  182.  
  183.         RITSUKO
  184.         Disappointment……?
  185.  
  186. Ritsuko suddenly bursts into raucous laughter.
  187.  
  188.         RITSUKO
  189.         You never wanted anything to begin with! You wanted nothing from me! Nothing!
  190.  
  191. Tears spill out, and her laughter suddenly turns into sobs.
  192. Ikari stands there silently.
  193. Gashann! The door closes and the sound of Ritsuko's sobs are cut off.
  194.  
  195.  
  196. INT. HALL - DREAM
  197.  
  198. Shinji stands in front of the elevator.
  199. The door opens.
  200. Rei is inside.
  201. Countless Reis are reflected in the stainless steel.
  202. Shinji and Rei's eyes meet and Shinji is petrified.
  203.  
  204.  
  205. INT. SHINJI'S ROOM
  206.  
  207. Shinji throws himself onto his bed.
  208.  
  209.         SHINJI
  210.         ……
  211.  
  212. ---
  213.  
  214. EXT. AERIAL VIEW OF TOKYO-3
  215.  
  216. The city is in ruins from Unit 00's suicide attack during the previous battle.
  217. Shinji wanders about the abandoned city, a strong wind blowing through as he stumbles over the rubble.
  218.  
  219. EXT. ANOTHER AREA
  220.  
  221. Shinji is walking about, he hears a piano coming from somewhere.
  222.  
  223.  
  224. EXT. SCHOOL
  225.  
  226. The blast has turned the building to ruins.
  227.  
  228.  
  229. INT. SCHOOL - GYMNASIUM
  230.  
  231. A lone boy innocently plays the piano.
  232. He has a shockingly beautiful face.
  233. The boy notices Shinji's gaze and stops playing
  234.  
  235.         BOY
  236.         Oh, is someone there?
  237.  
  238.         SHINJI
  239.         Who are……? You're not a student of this school are you?
  240.  
  241.         BOY
  242.         I'm a transfer student.
  243.  
  244.         SHINJI
  245.         Transfer student?
  246.  
  247.         BOY
  248.         I brought my transfer papers where the school was supposed to be, but as I suspected, not a soul is here.
  249.  
  250.         SHINJI
  251.         Everyone was sent away to Tokyo-2. Both the teachers and students.
  252.  
  253.         BOY
  254.         Why are you still here?
  255.  
  256.         SHINJI
  257.         I was left behind.
  258.  
  259.         BOY
  260.         Haha. Poor thing.
  261.  
  262. An ominous sound fills the building.
  263.  
  264.         SHINJI
  265.         The wind……
  266.  
  267.         BOY
  268.         I thought it might have been the sound of spirit voices.
  269.  
  270.         SHINJI
  271.         Spirit voices?
  272.  
  273.         BOY
  274.         Didn't you know? In the dead of night in the school gymnasium, you can hear voices making merry.
  275.  
  276.         SHINJI
  277.         No.
  278.  
  279.         BOY
  280.         They say that the spirits of children who aren't done playing leave their bodies as they sleep, and gather in these places.
  281.  
  282.         SHINJI
  283.         Huh.
  284.  
  285.         BOY
  286.         In the Heian period, they called this flitting out of spirits, "akugaru" which has now become the word "akogareru." {I'm stumped on a good English rendition for this, "akugaru" is like Kaworu says, that whole spirit leaving the body thing, but I guess the fundamental idea here is one's soul being drawn out by some strong desire. The modern word which allegedly derives from it is "akogareru" or "to yearn for" (or admire, but I think yearning fits most here)}
  287.  
  288. The ominous sound fills the building again.
  289. Shinji looks up at the ceiling, frightened.
  290. It almost seems like we can hear the voices of those children in the sound.
  291. Shinji comes back to his senses and notices that the boy is gone.
  292.  
  293.         SHINJI
  294.         (Looking around) ––Hey! Where'd you go!
  295.  
  296. But the boy doesn't respond.
  297.  
  298.         SHINJI
  299.         ……
  300.  
  301. INT. GEOFRONT, LOBBY OF THE CEILING BUILDING {天井ビル again, whatever that is}
  302.  
  303. Rei has been awaiting orders.
  304. Shinji comes a bit later, and stands next to her.
  305.  
  306.         REI
  307.         ––What?
  308.  
  309.         SHINJI
  310.         Uh……
  311.  
  312.         REI
  313.         You seem startled. You were looking at me in the elevator.
  314.  
  315.         SHINJI
  316.         Not really……
  317.  
  318.         REI
  319.         Oh.
  320.  
  321. And that's when Misato comes in, with someone else in tow.
  322.  
  323.         MISATO
  324.         Alright you two, everyone's here. Let me introduce you. This is a new pilot candidate, Nagisa Kaworu.
  325.  
  326.         SHINJI
  327.         The Fifth Child……?
  328.  
  329. Shinji is shocked when he sees him.
  330. He's the boy he saw in the gymnasium playing piano.
  331.  
  332.         MISATO
  333.         This is the pilot of Eva Unit 01, Ikari Shinji. And formerly Unit 00's pilot, Ayanami Rei.
  334.  
  335.         KAWORU
  336.         Pleased to meet you. I look forward to working together.
  337.  
  338.         REI
  339.         (Expressionlessly) Same here.
  340.  
  341.         MISATO
  342.         (To Kaworu) If there's anything you need to know about living here, just ask Shinji.
  343.  
  344.         KAWORU
  345.         (Holding out his hand). Pleased to meet you, Ikari Shinji.
  346.  
  347. As they shake hands, he looks intently at Shinji's eyes.
  348. Shinji looks away.
  349. Kaworu smiles when he sees this.
  350.  
  351.  
  352. ---
  353.  
  354. INT. NERV HQ - PLUG TEST ROOM
  355.  
  356. Three test plugs are submerged in liquid.
  357. Rei, Kaworu and Shinji have their eyes closed.
  358. Slowly and quietly they sink into the interior.
  359.  
  360.  
  361. INT. NERV HQ - CONTROL ROOM
  362.  
  363. The three of them are on the monitors.
  364.  
  365.         IBUKI
  366.         #0 is nearing the contamination limit. That's as far as she can go. #1 and #5 can go a bit further.
  367.  
  368.         MISATO
  369.         You mean his harmonics are better than Rei's?
  370.  
  371.         IBUKI
  372.         They're way beyond Shinji's numbers from before when that happened.
  373.  
  374. Kaworu's wave pattern comes up on the screen.
  375.  
  376.         IBUKI
  377.         Take a look at #5's personal pattern! He shouldn't be compatible with Unit 02, but they're so similar.
  378.  
  379.         MISATO
  380.         So he can sync with Unit 01!?
  381.  
  382.         IBUKI
  383.         It should be impossible.
  384.  
  385.         MISATO
  386.         Did you hear that from Ritsuko…… Professor Akagi?
  387.  
  388.         IBUKI
  389.         No…… I was informed about the Fifth's existence though.
  390.  
  391.         MISATO
  392.         Estimate his sync rate with Unit 02.
  393.  
  394.         IBUKI
  395.         (Calculating) 270%!
  396.  
  397.         MISATO
  398.         Could that happen in Unit 02 too……!?
  399.  
  400.         IBUKI
  401.         No way, I don't believe it!
  402.  
  403.         MISATO
  404.         But it is true. We've gotta accept it, find out the cause.
  405.  
  406.  
  407. INT. NERV HQ - TEST SITE
  408.  
  409. The plug hatches open after the test ends.
  410. After Shinji gets out, he hurries to leave.
  411. Kaworu watches him from behind.
  412.  
  413.  
  414. INT. NERV HQ - PUBLIC BATH
  415.  
  416. Shinji taking a bath.
  417. We hear the door open and close.
  418. Kaworu's slender figure appears out of the steam.
  419.  
  420.         KAWORU
  421.         You always head off before everyone.
  422.  
  423. Shinji averts his eyes from Kaworu's naked body.
  424.  
  425.         KAWORU
  426.         I wonder, are you avoiding me?
  427.  
  428.         SHINJI
  429.         I'm not avoiding you or anything.
  430.  
  431.         KAWORU
  432.         You're such a liar. You totally are.
  433.  
  434.         SHINJI
  435.         You should have told me you were the Fifth Child.
  436.  
  437.         KAWORU
  438.         That's my line. I didn't know you were the Third. ––Are you mad about that?
  439.  
  440.         SHINJI
  441.         Not really.
  442.  
  443.         KAWORU
  444.         Is it always like this? Like, kinda tense?
  445.  
  446.         SHINJI
  447.         Tense?
  448.  
  449.         KAWORU
  450.         Both Lieutenant Katsuragi and you.
  451.  
  452.         SHINJI
  453.         A lot of stuff has happened. Before you came, Mr. Kaji and Ayanami, they……
  454.  
  455.         KAWORU
  456.         What happened to the First?
  457.  
  458.         SHINJI
  459.         Uh…… Nevermind.
  460.  
  461.         KAWORU
  462.         Tell me.
  463.  
  464.         SHINJI
  465.         I don't want to talk about it.
  466.  
  467.         KAWORU
  468.         Oh, so it's confidential.
  469.  
  470.         SHINJI
  471.         ……
  472.  
  473. Kaworu enters the water.
  474.  
  475.         KAWORU
  476.         But, it's made you pretty timid when it comes to human contact.
  477.  
  478.         SHINJI
  479.         I've always been like this. If I don't know someone, we can't betray or hurt each other.
  480.  
  481.         KAWORU
  482.         But isn't that kind of lonesome?
  483.  
  484.         SHINJI
  485.         That's just how it is. I was born this way. I can't change. I hate that about myself so much. To be honest, I want to scream and run away from myself.
  486.  
  487.         KAWORU
  488.         But I always hear you saying that you mustn't run away.
  489.  
  490.         SHINJI
  491.         I figure, if I'll get reborn as a new person when I die, I don't mind if I do.
  492.  
  493.         KAWORU
  494.         I dunno about that. You seem to be a person who values yourself above all else.
  495.  
  496.         SHINJI
  497.         ……
  498.  
  499.         KAWORU
  500.         (Abruptly) Let me see your hand.
  501.  
  502.         SHINJI
  503.         Huh……?
  504.  
  505.         KAWORU
  506.         Your left hand.
  507.  
  508. Kaworu takes Shinji's left hand and examines his palm.
  509. Shinji is startled when he notices several scars on Kaworu's wrist.
  510.  
  511.         KAWORU
  512.         You have callouses on your finger tips.
  513.  
  514.         SHINJI
  515.         It's from playing cello.
  516.  
  517.         KAWORU
  518.         Cello?
  519.  
  520.         SHINJI
  521.         I play a little.
  522.  
  523.         KAWORU
  524.         How lovely.
  525.  
  526. Kaworu gripping his left hand.
  527. Skin touching skin……
  528. Badump, badump, Shinji's heart pounds wildly.
  529.  
  530.         SHINJI
  531.         Sorry…… I need to get out……
  532.  
  533. He says, letting go of Kaworu's hand and leaving the bath.
  534.  
  535. Shinji's heart pounds even harder.
  536. He staggers to his feet.
  537. Shinji faints.

  548.         KAWORU
  549.         You awake?
  550.  
  551.         SHINJI
  552.         ……
  553.  
  554.         KAWORU
  555.         You passed out. You really scared me when you collapsed.
  556.  
  557.         SHINJI
  558.         Sorry…… for being such a bother.
  559.  
  560.         KAWORU
  561.         You must be tired. I'm sure. So much has happened.
  562.  
  563.         SHINJI
  564.         Yeah. A lot has happened……
  565.  
  566. Kaworu notices the cello in the corner of the room.
  567.  
  568.         KAWORU
  569.         Is that yours?
  570.  
  571.         SHINJI
  572.         Yeah.
  573.  
  574.         KAWORU
  575.         It's a nice cello.
  576.  
  577.         SHINJI
  578.         It was my mother's.
  579.  
  580.         KAWORU
  581.         Oh, I know. We should play together. You on cello, me on piano. I'm sure it'll calm you down. It must be suffocating being trapped underground, just doing Eva tests all day.
  582.  
  583.         SHINJI
  584.         But, I don't think my cello playing is as good as your piano. I'm embarrassed.
  585.  
  586.         KAWORU
  587.         It'll just be for fun. Plus, what do we have to be embarrassed about at this point?
  588.        
  589. Shinji remembers his disgraceful behavior, and his pale face turns bright red again.
  590.  
  591.         KAWORU
  592.         Is there a piano somewhere around here?
  593.  
  594.         SHINJI
  595.         I think there should be one in the lounge.
  596.  
  597.         KAWORU
  598.         I have a startup test with Unit 02 tomorrow. Let's go tomorrow after that. Promise?
  599.  
  600.         SHINJI
  601.         Okay.
  602.  
  603.         KAWORU
  604.         Well, I should be going.
  605.  
  606.         SHINJI
  607.         Good night.
  608.

  612. Kaworu's face slides toward Shinji's.
  613. Kaworu gives Shinji a kiss.

  622.  
  623.         MISATO
  624.         (Looking up from some papers) ––Dead Sea Scrolls!?
  625.  
  626.         HYUGA
  627.         Yeah. I tried investigating the Fifth like you said, Ms. Katsuragi, but as I was digging, I found something strange in an unexpected place.
  628.  
  629.         MISATO
  630.         So you're saying the Angels are mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls?
  631.  
  632.         HYUGA
  633.         Not just the Angels. But Adam, the Second Impact and the Human Instrumentality Project even.
  634.  
  635.         MISATO
  636.         (Scanning over the end of the document) So there's one Angel left……?
  637.  
  638.         HYUGA
  639.         It seems like the higher ups knew already.
  640.  
  641.         MISATO
  642.         The commander?
  643.  
  644.         HYUGA
  645.         Not just him, but the assistant commander and even Professor Akagi too. Nerv's predecessor organization, Gehrin seems to have been based on the scenario detailed in these Dead Sea Scrolls.
  646.  
  647.         MISATO
  648.         ……
  649.  
  650.         HYUGA
  651.         Seems like we both got ourselves tangled up in some ridiculous organization, huh?
  652.  
  653. Hyuga hands Misato some more documents.
  654.  
  655.         HYUGA
  656.         Here's my research on the Fifth Child. There's nothing suspicious in his history. Before he came, he had some contact with the committee, but  there are no traces of it being organized. It seems like a lot has happened in his family life. Well, I guess he's just a pretty boy who's experienced much misfortune.
  657.  
  658.         MISATO
  659.         Just your type, huh. {whaa, Hyuga's a homo?}
  660.  
  661.         HYUGA
  662.         Jeez……
  663.  
  664. Misato flips through the pages of the documents and her face grows dim when she sees something.
  665.  
  666.         HYUGA
  667.         What is it?
  668.  
  669.         MISATO
  670.         His birthday……
  671.  
  672.         HYUGA
  673.         (Looking over at the document) ––?
  674.

  699.         KAWORU
  700.         Thank you.
  701.  
  702. Rei and Kaworu's fingers touch ever so slightly as he takes it from her.
  703. Their expressions change as if they've both realized something.
  704.  
  705.         KAWORU
  706.         So that's what Ikari meant……
  707.

  714.         REI
  715.         Just who, are you……?
