013

UrsusArctos: Wait, if that's meant to happen in Nevada it's way too far north...and what in Pete's name happened to Canada???


Mr. Tines: Second Impact can handwave away some of the geographical oddities, but not all of them.

HYUGA (OFF):“Anyway, 1st Branch is okay, right?”

HYUGA (OFF):“It doesn't matter, we'll have the Magi evaluate the data discrepancies from the sensors!”

TECHIE (OFF):“Send the info from Satellite 5 immediately. It's top priority.”

TECHIE (OFF):“Just the schedule for Unit 04 is fine.”

TECHIE (OFF):“I'd like confirmation on the synchro data and the S2 engine.”

TECHIE (OFF):“We'll get rid of the noise over on our end. Just send us the originals.”

015

FUYUTSUKI:“It vanished?!”




17 C016.jpg

016

FUYUTSUKI:“You're sure the 2nd Branch just vanished?!”

AOBA (PHONE):“Yes, Sir, it's been confirmed.”




17 C017.jpg

017

AOBA (PHONE):“It vanished.”




17 C018a.jpg

17 C018b.jpg

17 C018c.jpg

018

MISATO (OFF) Oh, man...

HYUGA (OFF):“The Administration and Investigation departments are going crazy, and General Affairs is in a total panic.”

MISATO (OFF):“So what was the cause?”




17 C019a.jpg

17 C019b.jpg

17 C019c.jpg

RITSUKO (OFF):“We still don't know. Our only clues are these geosynchronous satellite photos. There's nothing else left.”

IBUKI (OFF):“10 seconds... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1 ... Contact.”

MISATO (OFF):“This is horrible.”

UrsusArctos: Nevada, of course, is home to the legendary Area 51, and it was also the location of the Wildfire Facility in the Andromeda Strain. The disappearance into a sea of red is pretty creepy looking. As a little scientific nitpick, geosynchronous satellites only ever orbit above Earth's equator, so to get a view overhead would require the services of a satellite in tundra or molniya orbit, neither of which are properly geosynchronous.




17 C020.jpg

020

IBUKI:“Evangelion Unit 04 and all related research facilities within an 89km radius have completely vanished.”

RITSUKO:“Along with several thousand people.”




17 C021.jpg

021

AOBA:“Looking at the time schedule, we believe it to be an accident during the experimental installation of the S2 engine that was restored in Germany.”

UrsusArctos: The description of the S2 engine as "restored" hints that it's the S2 from Shamshel, seen being recovered in Episode 05.




17 C022.jpg

022

IBUKI:“Potential causes range from a lack of structural integrity to a preliminary design stage error. That's 32,768 possibilities right there.”

MISATO (OFF):“And there's also the chance of sabotage.”

UrsusArctos: 32768 or 215 is the highest absolute value for a negative signed integer in computing science. Is that where this seemingly random number was chosen from?




17 C023.jpg

023

HYUGA:“But it didn't explode, it vanished, right? In other words, it disappeared.”

RITSUKO (OFF):“In all probability,”




17 C024.jpg

024

RITSUKO:“they were swallowed by a Sea of Dirac, just like Unit 01 was.”




17 C025.jpg

025

MISATO:“And the S2 engine that we finally restored?”




17 C026.jpg

026

RITSUKO:“Gone. Our dream's been shattered.”




17 C027.jpg

027

MISATO:“That's what we get for trying to push ourselves into using something we don't understand.”




17 C028a.jpg

17 C028b.jpg

028

RITSUKO (MONO):“That goes for the Evas too.”




17 C029a.jpg

17 C029b.jpg

029

MISATO:“So, what about the remaining Unit 03?”

RITSUKO:“We're going to base it here. It seems the U.S. government doesn't want to lose the 1st Branch as well.”

MISATO:“They're the ones who insisted on the right to build Units 03 and 04. And now they're foisting just the dangerous parts off on us? Talk about self-serving bastards.”

RITSUKO:“After a disaster like that, anyone would get nervous.”

MISATO:“So what are you going to do about the activation test? Will you use that dummy plug?”




17 C030a.jpg

17 C030b.jpg

030

RITSUKO:“I've still got to decide that.”




17 C031.jpg

031




17 C032.jpg

032

RITSUKO:“This is the dummy plug prototype. Rei's personal data has been loaded into it, but it's not really possible to digitize a human mind and soul. Ultimately, it's a fake, an imitation.”




17 C033.jpg

033

RITSUKO:“Just a machine that emulates a pilot's thinking process.”




17 C034a.jpg

17 C034b.jpg

034

IKARI:“It'll transmit a signal pattern to the Eva. As long as the Eva believes there's a pilot and synchronizes, that's enough. Load the data into Unit 01 and Unit 02.”

Mr. Tines: After the previous cross-synchronization experiments, doing anything with Eva-02 seems odd; and it turns out that this is a Chekov gun that didn't fire.




17 C035.jpg

035

RITSUKO:“There are still some problems with it.”

IKARI:“That's not important. As long as the Eva activates, it's sufficient.”

RITSUKO:“Yes, Sir.”




17 C036a.jpg

17 C036b.jpg

036

IKARI:“I've delegated the transportation of the Unit to the U.N. It should arrive by the end of the week. You take care of the rest.”




17 C037.jpg

037

RITSUKO:“Yes, Sir. We'll perform the modifications and activation test in Matsushiro.”

IKARI:“What about the test pilot?”

RITSUKO:“The dummy plug is still risky. Of our prospective candidates...”




17 C038.jpg

038

IKARI:“We'll select a fourth, then?”

RITSUKO:“Yes, there is one child whose core can be prepared immediately.”

UrsusArctos: Plot conveniences aside, it does raise the question of why there weren't other candidates for whom cores could be prepared at once.




17 C039a.jpg

17 C039b.jpg

17 C039c.jpg

039

IKARI (OFF):“Then I'll leave it to you.”

RITSUKO (OFF):“Yes, Sir.”

IKARI (OFF):“Rei, you can come out now.”

REI:“Yes, Sir.”

IKARI (OFF):“Let's eat.”




17 C040.jpg

040

REI (OFF):“Yes, Sir.”




17 C041a.jpg

17 C041b.jpg

041

Mr. Tines: Ritsuko looks jealous here of the attention Rei is getting.
