  1. NEON GENESIS EVANGELION
  2. EPISODE 24 "THE FINAL ANGEL" (FIRST DRAFT)
  3.  
  4.  
  5. INT. NERV HQ - CAGE
  6.        
  7. In one corner a humanoid weapon, about 5 meters in length, is submerged in coolant.
  8. On its body are the markings, "αーTYPEーEVA000."
  9. Standing on the umbilical bridge before it are Ikari Gendou and Fuyutsuki Kouzou.
  10.  
  11.         IKARI
  12.         The new Eva prototype: α Eva.
  13.  
  14.         FUYUTSUKI
  15.         The miniature Evangelion, was it? What need do we have for something like this now of all times?
  16.          
  17.         IKARI
  18.         It was created for the Human Instrumentality Project. This is the prototype.
  19.  
  20.         FUYUTSUKI
  21.         Wasn't there a need to make some arrangements [to reach] the site? There are quite a few people asking questions about the freeze on Unit 00's repairs. Professor Akagi is taking matters into her own hands to find another Eva pilot.
  22.  
  23.         IKARI
  24.         Let her keep at it a little longer. Plan E still isn't complete. According to SEELE's script, there's still one Angel remaining.
  25.  
  26.  
  27.  
  28.         THE FINAL ANGEL
  29.  
  30.  
  31. INT. NERV HQ - TEST PLUGS, CONTROL ROOM
  32.  
  33.         MISATO
  34.         How's it going?
  35.  
  36.         IBUKI
  37.         Not well. These are the worst numbers the two of them have made yet.
  38.  
  39. Asuka and Rei are shown in their test plugs on a monitor.
  40.  
  41.         MISATO
  42.         Any idea what's causing it?
  43.  
  44.         IBUKI
  45.         We don't have a clear answer yet, but the data shows that both of their sync rates tend to fluctuate. Asuka's numbers are probably a result of mental stress while Rei's are probably physical.
  46.  
  47.         MISATO
  48.         There's no way either of them could pilot an Eva like this, huh. I guess this sort of thing was unavoidable with the main pilots. This is probably why Ritsuko's been running around these past few weeks trying to find a replacement pilot.
  49.  
  50.         IBUKI
  51.         This'll be the first pilot who doesn't come from the Marduk report. I'm a little worried. I can't help but think that Professor Akagi is being a little overzealous this time. Haven't you noticed it? She's been in such a hurry lately.
  52.  
  53.         MISATO
  54.         ……
  55.  
  56.        
  57. EXT. THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOKYO-3, IN FRONT OF THE TURNSTILES OF A TRAIN STATION - AFTERNOON
  58.  
  59. A single car is parked by the station. Ritsuko and Shinji are waiting for their train.
  60. Ritsuko tries to light the cigarette in her mouth, but a sudden wind prevents her.
  61. Shinji spontaneously reaches out with his palm to block the wind.
  62.  
  63.         RITSUKO
  64.         Thanks. (She lights the cigarette.) Shinji, you're always looking out for other people, aren't you? I bet you don't even get a break at home, do you?
  65.  
  66.         SHINJI
  67.         Oh, not at all. Plus, the three of us are rarely together these days. Misato's always os busy and Asuka's doing overtime for testing so they never get back until evening.
  68.  
  69.         RITSUKO
  70.         I guess I'm the one who's been sowing the seeds of your house's ruin.
  71.  
  72.         SHINJI
  73.         It's not your fault. Work is work after all. Though, there is one thing that's been bugging me. Misato seems to be drinking more.
  74.  
  75.         RITSUKO
  76.         –––Shinji, have you ever fallen in love?
  77.  
  78.         SHINJI
  79.         Not yet…
  80.  
  81.         RITSUKO
  82.         In Misato's heart, Kaji was a physically a part of her. Now that he's gone, it's finally hit her. But, some times those painful feelings become so overwhelming, it becomes unbearable. And on those nights, sometimes [we {general}] need to rely on the power of alcohol just a bit.
  83.  
  84. A special train pulls into the platform.
  85.  
  86.         SHINJI
  87.         Will I understand that sort of thing better once I've fallen in love?
  88.  
  89.         RITSUKO
  90.         When you understand it, it means you've become an adult. –––Alright. The Fifth Child is here.
  91.        
  92. The special train pulls out of the station.
  93. A young boy wearing a cute, navy sailor suit remains on the platform. (Nagisa Kaworu)
  94. Kaworu stands in the heat haze.
  95. He sparkles against the light of the setting sun, his hair the color of honey.
  96. Shinji is unconsciously bewitched by his divine beauty.
  97. Shinji meets Kaworu's gaze. His heart pounds.
  98.  
  99.  
  100. INT. GEOFRONT - LOBBY OF THE CEILING BUILDING {er, does 天井ビル have a more common translation re: Eva?}
  101.  
  102. Kaworu is meeting the three Eva pilots.
  103. Misato and Ritsuko stand next to Kaworu.
  104.  
  105.         RITSUKO
  106.         This is the fifth candidate we've selected, Nagisa Kaworu.
  107.  
  108.         KAWORU
  109.         I'm Nagisa Kaworu. Pleased to meet you.
  110.  
  111.         ASUKA
  112.         (Her eyes sparkle.) I'm Asuka. Soryuu Asuka Langley. Nice to meet 'cha.
  113.  
  114. She shakes his hand.
  115.  
  116.         RITSUKO
  117.         This is the First Child, Ayanami Rei.
  118.  
  119.         KAWORU
  120.         Pleased to meet you.
  121.  
  122.         REI
  123.         (Deadpan as always.) You too.
  124.  
  125. They shake hands and for just an instant look at each other.
  126. Misato looks over to Shinji, who looks a bit forlorn.
  127.  
  128.  
  129. INT. NERV HQ - PHOTO ROOM
  130.  
  131. Kaworu faces forward and a flash goes off.
  132.  
  133.  
  134. INT. SAME AREA, DIFFERENT ROOM
  135.  
  136. Kaworu's ID card comes off the printer.
  137.  
  138.         MISATO
  139.         (Picking it up.) Nagisa Kaworu… He's quite the beauty.
  140.  
  141.         RITSUKO
  142.         He's more than just a pretty face. Apparently he's at the top of his class and his athletic ability is prodigy-level too.
  143.  
  144.         MISATO
  145.         I hope Shinji doesn't develop an [inferiority] complex over him. He doesn't take [this kind of stress very well]. He seemed a little down today too.
  146.  
  147.         RITSUKO
  148.         (Giving Misato a sidelong glance) You worry too much…
  149.  
  150. --
  151.  
  152. EXT. CENTRAL HOSPITAL - AERIAL VIEW
  153.  
  154.         KENSUKE'S VOICE
  155.         Suuup
  156.  
  157.         TOUJI'S VOICE
  158.         Oh, that you, Kensuke? Come to visit your sick pal?
  159.  
  160.  
  161. INT. CENTRAL HOSPITAL - TOUJI'S ROOM
  162.  
  163. Touji is on the bed and Kensuke has come to visit.
  164.  
  165.         KENSUKE
  166.         I asked the receptionist, but are you really getting discharged tomorrow?
  167.  
  168.         TOUJI
  169.         Yeah. I think things'll be going pretty well for me starting next week.
  170.  
  171.         KENSUKE
  172.         When you're all better, are you going to pilot again?
  173.  
  174.         TOUJI
  175.         Nah, they decided to give me a break. They didn't really try very hard to keep me so they must not have been expecting much from me in the first place. Wahahaha. (He gives a melancholy smile.)
  176.  
  177.         KENSUKE
  178.         Oh…
  179.  
  180.         TOUJI
  181.         So, how's school been?
  182.  
  183.         KENSUKE
  184.         Well, I guess it's about as normal as it gets. Though, we did get a transfer student recently.
  185.  
  186.  
  187. INT. KENSUKE'S VIDEO
  188.  
  189. Inside the classroom, Kaworu writes his name on the blackboard.
  190.  
  191.         KENSUKE'S VOICE
  192.         His name is Nagisa Kaworu. I guess he's what you'd call a pretty-boy.
  193.  
  194.         TOUJI'S VOICE
  195.         He pales in comparison to me though.
  196.  
  197. Finished writing, Kaworu turns around.
  198.  
  199.         KENSUKE'S VOICE
  200.         Check out the girls' reactions.
  201.  
  202. The girls being excited.
  203.  
  204.         TOUJI'S VOICE
  205.         So the bitches are showing their true colors. {'bitches' sounds a bit harsh even for Touji but he's using メス which is pretty damn rude, I don't remember if he uses it in the series though}
  206.  
  207. Lunch time. A bunch of girls are chatting with Kaworu in the courtyard.
  208.  
  209.         KENSUKE'S VOICE
  210.         He's only just transferred in and he already has a fan club. I wouldn't be surprised if every girl at school was in it. Save a very tiny fraction.
  211.  
  212. Rei rests her chin on her hands, disinterested.
  213.  
  214.         TOUJI'S VOICE
  215.         Well, she's always like that.
  216.  
  217. The camera pans over to Asuka, looking dejected.
  218.  
  219.         KENSUKE'S VOICE
  220.         Soryuu looks pretty down, doesn't she? And she's usually the most energetic person in class.
  221.  
  222.         In the morning she was screwing around with everyone like usual, but, now, the transfer student came, and apparently he's going to be an Eva pilot too. I bet Soryuu sees him as a rival. Apparently her sync tests with Unit 02 haven't been going well lately.
  223.  
  224. When Asuka notices the camera focused on her, she throws something at it.
  225. Followed by video noise.
  226.  
  227. INT. TOUJI'S HOSPITAL ROOM AGAIN
  228.  
  229. Kensuke closes the video screen.
  230.  
  231.         KENSUKE
  232.         So, this new transfer student's already being called the Prince of the class after just three days.
  233.  
  234.         TOUJI
  235.         I dunno anything about princes, but I don't like this guy.
  236.  
  237.         KENSUKE
  238.         Suzuhara, you're always like that with the newcomers. I think you hated all the transfer students. Even Shinji, if I recall correctly!
  239.  
  240.         TOUJI
  241.         How is that Shinji kid doing anyway?
  242.  
  243. ---
  244.  
  245. INT. SCHOOL, CLASSROOM 2-A - AFTER SCHOOL
  246.  
  247. Shinji is sitting at his seat, burying his face between his arms on his desk.
  248. No one else is in the room but him.
  249. We hear piano playing coming from somewhere.
  250. Hikari comes in to get her bag.
  251.  
  252.         HIKARI
  253.         Oh, Ikari, you're here?
  254.  
  255.         SHINJI
  256.         (Lifts his head.) Yeah……
  257.  
  258.         HIKARI
  259.         I thought you'd gone with Aida to visit Susuhara in the hospital.
  260.  
  261.         SHINJI
  262.         It's…. complicated.
  263.  
  264.         HIKARI
  265.         (Noticing the piano.) Nagisa's playing. He's really good, isn't he? –––Well, I'm off.
  266.  
  267.         SHINJI
  268.         Bye.
  269.  
  270. Alone again, Shinji listens to the piano in his deep melancholy.
  271.  
  272.  
  273. EXT. SHINJI'S MEMORY - THE STATION
  274.  
  275. He meets Kaworu's gaze and smiles.
  276.  
  277.         KAWORU
  278.         Pleased to meet you.
  279.  
  280.         SHINJI
  281.         (Stuttering) S-Same here.
  282.

  292.  
  293. The piano piece ends at a sort of unnatural point.
  294.  
  295.         SHINJI
  296.         ……
  297.  
  298. INT. SCHOOL - MUSIC ROOM
  299.  
  300. Shinji ever so timidly opens the door.
  301. ––No one's inside.
  302. We hear footsteps going down stairs.
  303.  
  304.  
  305. INT. SCHOOL - STAIRS
  306.  
  307. Shinji runs down the stairs.
  308. But he can't seem to catch up with the footsteps.
  309. At which point the PA system comes on and the string piece "Winter" from Vivaldi's Four Seasons plays over the speakers.
  310.  
  311.         ANNOUNCER
  312.         It's time to go home. Any students left on campus, please prepare to head home immediately.
  313.  
  314.  
  315. EXT. SCHOOL YARD - DUSK
  316.  
  317. The end-of-the-school-day broadcast echos throughout the yard.
  318. The various athletic club students [stream by] as their practices end.
  319. Shinji looks around as he leaves the building, but Kaworu is nowhere to be seen.
  320. As the athletic club members are cleaning up, they all look up at the sky at once.
  321. –––It's started raining.
  322. Even though the sun is still shining, large drops of rain fall from the sky. {I thought it was supposed to be dusk already!}
  323. The students rush into the school building.
  324. Shinji is enveloped by the golden rain.
  325.  
  326.  
  327. EXT. THE ROAD HOME
  328.  
  329. Kaworu walks home alone with an umbrella in the sun shower.
  330. Someone comes running from behind him and overtakes him.
  331. It's Shinji, completely soaked.
  332. When Shinji notices Kaworu, he stops in his tracks.
  333. Kaworu raises his umbrella a bit and smiles.
  334.  
  335.         SHINJI
  336.         ––
  337.  
  338. Kaworu raises his umbrella again.
  339. Shinji hesitates a bit before joining Kaworu under the umbrella.
  340.  
  341.         KAWORU
  342.         Heading to Nerv?
  343.  
  344.         SHINJI
  345.         Yeah……
  346.  
  347.         KAWORU
  348.         Let's go together then.
  349.  
  350. The two walk together.
  351.  
  352.  
  353. INT. REI'S ROOM
  354.        
  355. Rei is drying herself off when something catches her eye and she looks out the window.
  356. There's a vivid rainbow over Tokyo-3.

  364.  
  365.         ASUKA
  366.         Alright, I wonder if both me and Unit 02 are in good condition today.
  367.  
  368.         RITSUKO'S VOICE
  369.         (Over the PA) Wait a second. I'm sorry, but Asuka you're on standby.
  370.  
  371.         ASUKA
  372.         Standby…
  373.  
  374.         RITSUKO'S VOICE
  375.         The Fifth Child will be taking Unit 02 today.
  376.  
  377. We see Shinji and Kaworu in their plugsuits on an upper landing.
  378.  
  379.         KAWORU
  380.         I thought you hated me, Shinji.
  381.  
  382.         SHINJI
  383.         Why……?
  384.  
  385.         KAWORU
  386.         I kinda got the feeling you were avoiding me.
  387.  
  388.         SHINJI
  389.         I wasn't trying to.
  390.  
  391.         KAWORU
  392.         Really?
  393.  
  394.         SHINJI

  406.         RITSUKO
  407.         How's the Fifth Chid doing?
  408.  
  409.         IBUKI
  410.         His sync is quite high. This is far beyond Asuka's personal best.
  411.  
  412.         MISATO
  413.         So, this means he's confirmed as the replacement pilot now?
  414.  
  415.         RITSUKO
  416.         Only after we get the results of Unit 02's startup test.
  417.  
  418.  
  419. INT. SCHOOL, CLASSROOM (THE NEXT DAY)
  420.  
  421. Kaworu and Shinji are having fun talking to each other.
  422. Several female students watch from a distance. {this is so retro shoji it burns, also side note: they're -sama'ing Kaworu in this}
  423.  
  424.         GIRL A
  425.         That Ikari's such a leech. He's just hanging all over our dear Kaworu.
  426.  
  427.         GIRL B
  428.         They even shared an umbrella home yesterday.
  429.  
  430.         GIRL C
  431.         (To Asuka who's next to her) Hey, Soryuu, don't you have suspicions about Kaworu and Ikari?
  432.  
  433.         ASUKA
  434.         Well, I mean, they are an item after all.
  435.  
  436.         GIRL A
  437.         You mean, they're…… you know?
  438.  
  439.         GIRL B
  440.         Huh, I don't believe it.
  441.  
  442. The rumor spreads through the girls' whispers.
  443. Asuka seems to feel a little bad about it, but just sticks out her tongue and feigns ignorance.
  444.  
  445.  
  446. INT. SCHOOL, HALLWAY - AFTER SCHOOL
  447.  
  448. Kensuke stops Shinji as he's about to head home.

  452.  
  453.         SHINJI
  454.         What?
  455.        
  456.         KENSUKE
  457.         I was thinking about throwing Touji a party to celebrate getting out of the hospital, so–
  458.  
  459.         SHINJI
  460.         Sorry. I can't today, I have a prior engagement…
  461.  
  462.         KENSUKE
  463.         Oh, well that's too bad.
  464.  
  465.         SHINJI
  466.         Well, later then… {dick move Shinji!}
  467.  
  468. As Shinji hurries off, we see Kensuke, watching him leave, looking dejected.
  469.  
  470. ---
  471.  
  472. EXT. OLD TOWN (NEAR ODAWARA)
  473.  
  474. A townscape that was submerged 15 years ago.
  475. Ruins of buildings stick out of the ocean in clusters.
  476. Shinji and Kaworu gaze at the scene from the breakwater.
  477.  
  478.         KAWORU
  479.         It's like Bruges in the play, 'Die tote Stadt.' Beautiful and desolate.
  480.  
  481.         SHINJI
  482.         What's that?
  483.  
  484.         KAWORU
  485.         It's the story of a man who closes himself away in a house in the City of Death, not wanting to forget his young wife who died. The man calls one of the rooms, 'The Temple of Memories,' which he carefully fills with his late wife's belongings to maintain her memory. But, a dancer who looks just like his wife appears and throws his heart into confusion. He learns that life and death are different things, and finally resolves to leave the City of Death.
  486.  
  487.         SHINJI
  488.         Huh…

  490.         KAWORU
  491.         Hey, how about a swim?
  492.  
  493.         SHINJI
  494.         A swim? Here?
  495.  
  496.         KAWORU
  497.         Yeah.
  498.  
  499.         SHINJI
  500.         But I didn't bring a swimsuit.
  501.  
  502.         KAWORU
  503.         We can just swim in the nude. No one else is here after all.
  504.  
  505.         SHINJI
  506.         But……
  507.  
  508.         KAWORU
  509.         There's nothing to be embarrassed about. We're both boys.
  510.  
  511.         SHINJI
  512.         Yeah, but…
  513.  
  514.         KAWORU
  515.         Let's go.
  516.  
  517. He says as he heads for the water, stripping off his sailor suit.
  518.  
  519. Shinji follows after him, unbuttoning his clothes.
  520.  
  521.  
  522. EXT. SEA
  523.  
  524. At a shore between the buildings stands Kaworu, without a shred of clothing on.
  525. Shinji follows a bit later.
  526. Kaworu's supple limbs float to the surface of the sparkling water.
  527. Shinji is unconsciously fascinated by his figure.
  528. Kaworu gradually heads deeper into the water but Shinji stops.
  529.  
  530.         KAWORU
  531.         (Turning around) Come over here.
  532.  
  533.         SHINJI
  534.         I can't go any further…. I can't swim……
  535.  
  536.         KAWORU
  537.         It'll be alright. Just hold on to me.
  538.  
  539. Shinji enters the deeper water as if drawn to Kaworu.
  540. But, Kaworu doesn't take his hand and Shinji nearly drowns.
  541. Kaworu embraces Shinji.
  542. Shinji clings to him.
  543.  
  544.         KAWORU
  545.         Hahaha. You really can't swim, can you?
  546.  
  547.         SHINJI
  548.         You're so mean. I trusted you……
  549.  
  550. Shinji bursts out into tears and buries his face into Kaworu's shoulder, sobbing without hesitation.
  551.  
  552. INT. ROOM IN AN ABANDONED BUILDING - AFTER SUNSET
  553.  
  554. The sun has disappeared past the horizon, but the sky is dyed emerald green.
  555. Shinji and Kaworu gaze at it as they dress themselves.
  556.  
  557.         KAWORU
  558.         Wow…… An emerald sunset.
  559.  
  560.         SHINJI
  561.         It's so beautiful.
  562.  
  563. As Kaworu buttons the sleeve of his sailor suit, Shinji notices several lines of scars on Kaworu's wrist.
  564.  
  565.         KAWORU
  566.         Hey. Why were you crying earlier? Are you scared of the ocean?
  567.  
  568.         SHINJI
  569.         I don't know….. I-I don't know. I just thought I'd like to sink into the ocean and die.
  570.  
  571.         KAWORU
  572.         Why……?
  573.  
  574.         SHINJI
  575.         To tell you the truth, I was avoiding you. Next to you, I'm such a pathetic excuse for a person…… I feel like I'm going to go crazy when I'm with you, but, when I can't see you…… I feel so, so anxious…… And when I thought about how you shouldn't spend your life with someone as pathetic as me…… I just felt like dying……
  576.  
  577. The sky is dark, their figures are in complete silhouette now.
  578.  
  579.         SHINJI
  580.         I can't see your face now……. Kaworu, I……
  581.  
  582.         KAWORU
  583.         (Interrupting him) I'm sorry……. I don't feel that way about you.
  584.  
  585.         SHINJI
  586.         –––
  587.  
  588.         KAWORU
  589.         Let's go home separately. I don't want to hurt you any more.
  590.  
  591. Kaworu leaves by himself.
  592. Shinji stands there in a sea of despair.

  600.  
  601.         ASUKA
  602.         Shinji's not eating?
  603.  
  604.         MISATO
  605.         Yeah, not one bite. I wonder what's wrong. He doesn't have a fever or anything. I wonder if I need to take him to the hospital for a checkup.
  606.  
  607.         ASUKA
  608.         That wouldn't do anything.
  609.  
  610.         MISATO
  611.         Why?
  612.  
  613.         ASUKA
  614.         You know, it's one of those things, "neither doctors nor a soak in the Kusatsu springs" can solve. {not sure what a good English idiom to this effect would be, the full line is more like "love sickness cannot be cured by doctors or a soak in the Kusatsu springs"}
  615.  
  616.         MISATO
  617.         Huh……      
  618.        
  619.         ASUKA
  620.         I'm sure that idiot is crying into his pillow about being spurned by the object of his affections.
  621.  
  622.         MISATO
  623.         Object of his affections…
  624.  
  625.         ASUKA
  626.         Yeah, it's the Fifth Child. (Standing up) ––Well, I guess I'll go try to cheer him up.
  627.  
  628. INT. SHINJI'S ROOM
  629.  
  630. The door opens and Asuka enters.

  634.         Shinji. I don't know what happened, but you can't lie around like this forever.
  635.  
  636. Shinji doesn't respond.
  637.  
  638.         ASUKA
  639.         (Poking Shinji's cheek) Hey, Shinji, say something. Shin-chan.
  640.  
  641.         SHINJI
  642.         (Coldly pushing her hand away) Don't touch me with your filthy hands…
  643.  
  644.         ASUKA
  645.         –––
  646.  
  647.         SHINJI
  648.         Funny hearing this from you. You're the one who started that disgusting rumor. I don't want to see your face, get out.
  649.  
  650. Asuka angrily storms out of the room.

  668.         Shinji [has a crush] on Kaworu!?
  669.  
  670.         MISATO
  671.         For a boy to end up like that over another boy, I made a bit miscalculation.
  672.  
  673.         RITSUKO
  674.         So, what of Shinji now?
  675.

  685. INT. NERV HQ - BACK IN THE CONTROL ROOM
  686.  
  687.         MISATO
  688.         To be honest, I had a bit of a bad feeling when I first met Kaworu. But to think it'd end up like this. I'm really at a loss.
  689.  
  690.         RITSUKO
  691.         You're jealous of Kaworu. He stole Shinji from you.
  692.  
  693.         MISATO
  694.         What are you saying. I'm his guardian, it's my job to worry about him.
  695.  
  696.         RITSUKO
  697.         I know you're not as strong as you look. A lot of things have happened these last few months. I think you might have been able to hold it all together because you've been living with Shinji.

  706.         That's strange. I'm sure I gave him the right time….
  707.  
  708.         MISATO
  709.         I wonder if he got lost. He's still not used to this place.

  723.         A suspicious person has trespassed quite a ways into the underground structure. They're heading for Central Dogma.
  724.  
  725.         HYUGA
  726.         We have ID data on the subject. They seem to be using Professor Akagi's card.
  727.  
  728.         RITSUKO
  729.         What!?
  730.  
  731.         MISATO

  734.         AOBA
  735.         I've got a visual on the target through the cameras in P-block.
  736.  
  737. An image of the underground facility appears on the main screen.
  738. Kaworu is walking around.
  739.  
  740.         RITSUKO
  741.         (Into the microphone) What are you doing there? You're not supposed to be in that place.
  742.  
  743. On the screen, Kaworu looks a bit troubled.
  744.  
  745.         KAWORU

  1011.         Ayanami, are you okay?
  1012.  
  1013.         REI
  1014.         Yeah.
  1015.  
  1016.  
  1017. INT. CENTRAL DOGMA
  1018.  
  1019. At some point, the Angel made it to the catwalk overlooking Adam. {how the fuck did Kaworu get here}
  1020. The Angel stares at Adam, not moving a muscle.
  1021. Ikari's voice comes over the PA system.
  1022.  
  1023.         IKARI
  1024.         Angel. Why do you not advance any further?
  1025.  
  1026.         KAWORU
  1027.         Commander Ikari, I presume?
  1028.  
  1029.         IKARI
  1030.         Indeed.
  1031.  
  1032.         KAWORU
  1033.         This is your 'Temple of Memories' isn't it?
  1034.        
  1035. ---
  1036.  
  1037. INT. PA SYSTEM LOCATION {?}
  1038.  
  1039.         IKARI
  1040.         Why do you make no attempt to make contact with Adam? Could it be that you pity humanity?
  1041.  
  1042.         KAWORU
  1043.         I'm the one who deserves your sympathy. Because continuing to live is so difficult.
  1044.  
  1045.         IKARI
  1046.         You chose death?
  1047.  
  1048.  
  1049. INT. CENTRAL DOGMA
  1050.  
  1051.         KAWORU
  1052.         Death is the single act of free will I have. The only way to defy my maker.
  1053.  
  1054.         IKARI
  1055.         But that's contrary to the basic principle of life.
  1056.  
  1057.         KAWORU
  1058.         Angels are creatures that constantly evolve. We have no predetermined form. And death is but another part of life.
  1059.  
  1060. We hear Shinji's voice coming from Unit 01.
  1061.  
  1062.         SHINJI
  1063.         Kaworu……
  1064.  
  1065.         KAWORU
  1066.         Shinji. I knew it would come to this, so I'm glad we had a chance to swim in the ocean together.
  1067.  
  1068.  
  1069. INT. UNIT 01 - ENTRY PLUG
  1070.  
  1071.         SHINJI
  1072.         You deceived me? You used me?
  1073.  
  1074.         KAWORU
  1075.         That's not quite right. I had so much fun spending those days with you. You're the only one who can end my life. If it's by your hand, nothing could bring me greater joy, even death.
  1076.  
  1077.         SHINJI
  1078.         (Sobbing) How am I supposed to be able to do that!
  1079.  
  1080.  
  1081. INT. CENTRAL DOGMA
  1082.  
  1083.         KAWORU
  1084.         Hurry. I can feel something stirring inside me. I think it's my instinct. Right now, I feel like you did before, I don't even know myself. {er, he's mirroring Shinji's line about not knowing why he's crying}
  1085.  
  1086.  
  1087. INT. UNIT 01 - ENTRY PLUG
  1088.  
  1089.         SHINJI
  1090.         ……
  1091.  
  1092.         KAWORU
  1093.         Hurry!
  1094.  
  1095.  
  1096. INT. CENTRAL DOGMA
  1097.  
  1098. Kaworu suddenly turn around and jumps, diving toward Adam.
  1099.  
  1100.         REI
  1101.         Ikari!
  1102.  
  1103.  
  1104. INT. UNIT 01 - ENTRY PLUG
  1105.  
  1106.         SHINJI
  1107.         –––!
  1108.  
  1109.  
  1110. INT. CENTRAL DOGMA
  1111.  
  1112. Unit 01 reaches out and grabs the Angel just before it makes contact with Adam.
  1113. Crunch.
  1114. With that sound, we see a faint grimace on Rei's face.
  1115. Blood flows from Unit 01's hand, trickling down.
  1116. Finally, Shinji's screams fill the huge room.
  1117.  
  1118. (FADE OUT)
  1119.  
  1120.  
  1121. INT. CAGE - SOME TIME HAS PASSED
  1122.  
  1123. Unit 01 in the coolant.
  1124. Shinji is in a corner washing his hands at a sink.
  1125. Misato comes over.
  1126.  
  1127.         MISATO
  1128.         Shinji…
  1129.  
  1130.         SHINJI
  1131.         (Without turning around) The scent of his blood is gone. But, I can still feel it in my hands……
  1132.  
  1133.         MISATO
  1134.         Shinji, you admired him didn't you?
  1135.  
  1136.         SHINJI
  1137.         He had everything I didn't. He should have survived.
  1138.  
  1139.         MISATO
  1140.         That's not true. Only those who desire to live survive.
  1141.  
  1142. Shinji doesn't say a word and intently washes his hands.
  1143.  
  1144.  
  1145. INT. LOCKER ROOM
  1146.  
  1147. Asuka stands there alone.
  1148. The door of the locker in front of her is covered in dents like someone punched it over and over.
  1149.  
  1150.         ASUKA
  1151.         –––
  1152.  
  1153.  
  1154. INT. HALL
  1155.  
  1156. We hear the clanging of Asuka beating on her locker from the locker room.
  1157. Rei leans against the wall, as if dizzy.
  1158. She eventually ends up lying on the ground.
  1159.  
  1160.  
  1161. INT. RITSUKO'S LAB
  1162.  
  1163. Ritsuko, alone, thinking about something intently.
  1164. Several MPs enter the room without knocking.
  1165.  
  1166.         MAN A
  1167.         (Holding out a warrant) Akagi Ritsuko. You are under arrest. I'm sure you know all too well what the charges are, Professor, would you care to hear them?
  1168.  
  1169.         RITSUKO
  1170.         No, no need. It'd just be a waste of time.
  1171.  
  1172. Ritsuko is taken away.
  1173.  
  1174.  
  1175. INT. SOMEWHERE - HUMAN INSTRUMENTALITY PROJECT
  1176.  
  1177. The committee is gathered.
  1178.  
  1179.         KEEL
  1180.         We have just confirmed the elimination of the final Angel as predicted in the scenario. Now there are no barriers to the Human Instrumentality Project.
  1181.  
  1182.         MEMBER A
  1183.         But we have a new problem. Ikari Gendou and Unit 01.
  1184.  
  1185.         MEMBER B
  1186.         Nerv is of no use to us now.
  1187.  
  1188.         MEMBER C
  1189.         He's been using his position as commander to turn Nerv into his personal property.
  1190.  
  1191.         MEMBER D
  1192.         Our investigation up until now makes it painfully clear that Ikari has been plotting to turn Unit 01 into a "god" and keep it to himself.
  1193.  
  1194.         KEEL
  1195.         As head of SEELE, I think we should dissolve Nerv.
  1196.  
  1197. INT. NERV HQ - MAIN COMMAND CENTER
  1198.  
  1199. Fuyutsuki and Ikari plotting something.
  1200.
