Screenshots Cut # Description/Dialogue Commentary
Shinji in front. Reflecting in the glass of the building is the Eva's true face.
Reichu: Well, finally! Hopefully there will be no more beating around the bush as to what constitutes Eva's actual face/head in the script from this point on…

Shinji apparently has actual control over the Eva now, since when he turns his head, Sho turns her head as well. This will pose an interesting question in a moment, though.

All things considered, I would have expected EVA-01's injuries face to involve slightly more than an empty eye socket. Where's all the gore? And the lance penetrated her skull, didn't it?

The Eva's head morphology here necessitates much ranting on my part, but, sadly, this will wait until I begin work on an extended treatise on the Evas, which will provide thorough coverage of anatomical matters. BTW, for those who haven't taken notice, EVA-01's forehead should look rather familiar.

Keisuke-kun: Interesting how there are pipes going into EVA-01's head. What are they for?

Reichu: My best guess is that they penetrate the skull and are used to monitor the brain. Violating the Evas like this is one of Nerv's pastimes, after all.
