Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo Recap

Evangelion’s plot has escalated dramatically in this rebuild. Humanity is barely there, and Tokyo-3 is in ruins.

Evangelion 3.0 exhibits the happenings 14 years after the Third Impact, a worldwide cataclysm. Shinji, the cause of the Impact, was retrieved from the entrapment of Eva Unit 01 floating in space by Asuka and Mari.  

No one wanted him to control another mech. Therefore, Shinji was brought to WILLE, a military faction led by Misato Katsuragi, plotting against NERV. He was strapped by a collar that may kill him if ever he controls another Eva. 

Rei, however, rescues Shinji from WILLE, bringing him to the headquarters of NERV. He then met his father, Gendo, tasking him to pilot Unit 13 with Kaworu. 

Gendo planned to trigger a mass extinction, so was Shinji’s mother with Rei and her other clones. Together with Kaworu, he embarked on a mission to undo the Third Impact using the Spears of Cassius and Longinus. 

The events led up to the awakening of Unit 13, about to start another cataclysm, the Fourth Impact. Mari prevents this by ejecting Shinji’s cockpit from Unit 13. Kaworu, also, stabs the unit with spears leading to his own death. Asuka, however, rescues Shinji from the cockpit.
