Trivia

This episode marks the third time an Angel mentally connects with an Eva pilot. The first was between Shinji and Leliel in episode 16 (the young Shinji he speaks to is actually the Angel probing his mind). The second was Asuka and Arael (the infamous "mind rape" sequence) in episode 22. See more »
