The extremely spacious commander’s office
Misato stands by herself.
FUYUTSUKI (OFF):“An ultra long distance shot directly at the enemy from outside its range, you say?”
ath: Gendo's office looks different here from all the other times we see it in the series, starting just as soon as next episode. Were did all these lamps go? There's a good thread on the topic (OVERANALYSIS WARNING!), complete with "moving office" theories and Galileo quotes.
Kendrix: Either Gendo, Fuyutsuki or Anno & co noticed that it would look much cooler/more surreal without the lamps and quickly removed them, hoping that no one would notice. Or maybe the office, like the infamous B-Wing, was not finished yet when the angels attacked, and the reflective surfaces with the symbols had yet to be placed there? Perhaps the lights remained beneath them and serve to illuminate the symbols.
