It's time (Literally: "Let's go")... Come, child of Adam, and servant of Lilim.
(Kaworu steps off the bridge and floats mid-air)
(EVA-02's eyes light and it activates, breaking free from the cage)
(Command Center - warning indicators light and alarms sound)
EVA-02 has activated!
(Monitor shows Asuka in sickroom)
Confirmed in hospital room 303.
Then who is...?
It's unmanned! An entry plug is not inserted!
Unmanned? It isn't the Fifth Child?
(Monitor display: A.T. Field generating)
A.T. Field generation detected in Central Dogma!
(Monitor display: 17th Angel - Identified)
No, pattern Blue! Unmistakably an Angel!
(EVA-02 and Kaworu descend down the Central Dogma shaft)
Misato (in disbelief):
An Angel!? That boy?
Target passing Level 4... and still descending.
No good! We can't cut off the power to the linear elevator!
Target passing Level 5.
Close all bulkheads throughout Central Dogma! Do anything possible to gain time!
(Shots of bulkheads closing)
(??) All personnel - evacuate. All personnel - evacuate.
Fuyutsuki (to Gendo):
Who would have thought that SEELE would send one directly to us.
The old men are trying to advance their schedule - by our hands.
People forget their foolishness and repeat the same mistakes.
People will not change if they perform their own atonement.
We will not rely on Adam or the Angels...
We must advance into the future by our own means. EVA-01 - fulfill your duty.
EVA-02 has broken through the armored bulkheads!
Target passing the No. 2 Cocytus!
Have EVA-01 pursue!
Use any and all means to prevent the target from entering Terminal Dogma!
(EVA-02 and Kaworu still descending)
But, why would an Angel use EVA-02?
Fuyutsuki (to Gendo):
Does it plan to join with EVA-02?
Or to use it to bring about destruction.
(Shinji inside EVA-01 entry plug)
No! NO! NO!! Kaworu? an Angel? It must be a LIE!!
Misato (on radio):
It's true - accept it. Now deploy, okay?
(Kaworu still descending - looking upward)
What's keeping you, Shinji?
(EVA-01 descending through Central Dogma shaft)
Operator: EVA-01, descending via No. 2 route in pursuit of target.
(Inside entry plug)
You betrayed me!
You betrayed my feelings!
You betrayed me just like my father!!
EVA-01 has reached Level 4 and is approaching target!
(Central Dogma shaft)
(EVA-02 and Kaworu look upward to see EVA-01)
I've been waiting for you, Shinji.
(the EVA units lock grips)
(EVA-01 and 02 draw their prog knives - Kaworu looks on coldly/sadly)
The Eva series, born of Adam, and a loathsome existence to humans.
Why the Lilim would use 'that' in order to survive - I can't understand.
(EVA-02 lunges at EVA-01's head, but EVA-01 parries the blow with its prog knife - Sparks fly from the contacting blades)
Kaworu - STOP! Why are you doing this!?
Eva and I have the same body - For I am also born of Adam.
I would be able to join with EVA-02, if I did not have a soul. (vague)
Because the soul of this unit has shut itself away.
(Deflected, EVA-01's prog knife thrusts toward Kaworu - but is stopped by an A.T. Field)
An A.T. Field!
Yes. That is what you Lilim call it.
A sacred province inviolate to anyone - the light of soul.
You Lilim are aware of that, aren't you?
That the A.T. Field is the barrier of heart that everyone has.
I don't understand! Kaworu!
(EVA-02 thrusts it's prog knife into EVA-01's left chest - Shinji screams in pain and plunges EVA-01's prog knife into EVA-02's neck)
Both Eva units have reached the bottom level.
20 seconds before target reaches Terminal Dogma.
Misato (to Makoto):
If EVA-01's signal disappears, and another change occurs in the A.T. Field...
I understand... Self-destruct the entire place, right? It's better than letting Third Impact occur.
It's all right - as long as I can die with you...
(EVA units locked in death struggle)
Is this people's fate? People's hopes are bound with sadness. (Closes eyes)
(Command Center shakes violently)
An A.T. Field! -The strongest yet detected!
(Displays: A.T. Field generation and monitoring LOST)
All light waves, electromagnetic waves and even particles have been shut out. We can't monitor anything!
A complete barrier!
Target, EVA-01 and EVA-02, all lost! Contact with pilot impossible!
(EVA units fall from hole in red ceiling into lake with salt pillars)
(Kaworu looks back sadly over shoulder, then proceeds onward)
(EVA-02 clutches at EVA-01's ankle... Kaworu unlocks "Heaven's Door")
Final safety system released!
Heaven's Door is opening!
So an Angel finally reached Adam...
(Makoto nods silently)
(EVA units square off against each other - surroundings shake violently again)
(Command Center - Monitors: A.T. Field generation detected - Analyzing)
It's an A.T. Field!
Another A.T. Field, similar to the first, has been generated near the barrier around Terminal Dogma!
It's entering the barrier!
Not - a new Angel!?
Negative! Unable to confirm!
(Monitors go blank)
W - What!? It's vanished!
Vanished? An Angel?
(Rei appears, standing on a ledge in Terminal Dogma)
(Kaworu, floating before Lilith)
Adam, progenitor (Literally: "mother") ours. Must those born from Adam return to Adam, even at the annihilation of humanity?
No! This is... Lilith!? I see... I understand now, Lilim.
(The nuclear self-destruct unit and deactivated EVA-02 crash into the chamber, followed by EVA-01, which grasps Kaworu with its right hand)
Thank you, Shinji.
I hoped you would stop EVA-02. Otherwise, I might have gone on living with her.
It is my destiny to go on living, even if that means the end of humanity.
But I can also die here - Life and death are of equal value to me.
My own death - that is my only absolute liberty.
What!? Kaworu? I don't understand what you're saying! Kaworu...
My final testament.
Now, erase me - Or you will all be erased.
Only one form of life can escape the time of annihilation - and obtain a future.
And, you are the one who should not die.
(Kaworu looks upward and smiles at Rei, who looks on coldly. Kaworu smiles)
All of you need a future.
(EVA-01's hand tenses slightly)
Thank you. I am happy to have met you.
(Prolonged stillness. Then...)
OMAKE - from EVANGELION ORIGINAL III, Episode 24, P. 24-38 and 39
All the Angels born of Adam have now been destroyed, making humanity the last remaining Angel. The promised time has come - The time to invest a soul in Lilith and cleanse this impure world.
Fuyutsuki: Time has run its course...
Gendo: Yes. Everything is finished, and thus everything begins.
