In short: Shinji killed Tabris (Nagisa Kaworo) and that leaved only 3 angesl and a semi-angel: the 3 angels are Adam, Lilith and LilimÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Lilim is usÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ we are basically angels, but since our AT Shield is very weak and we separated from god we are unknown to this.
After that, the mass series of Eva (developed by USA, germany, italy, china and i dont remember what other country) go and attack NERV, trying to get back the Adam embryo, Gendou actually knew of Seele's plan and went to the Terminal dogma (where lilith is held) and planed to fuse himself with Rei and lilith, but Rei literally gouged the embryo from Gendou's hand and fused herself with lilith, after that, when shinji gave up on saving the humans, she reverted back all the humans (except shinji) to LCL.
After She reforges Asuka, shini tries to strangle her to ''welcome her Eve'', ReiÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
if ya dont know, Lilith was the first woman of Adam, but since she was independant Adam didnt accepted herÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Asuka is lilith in this new begining, by strangling Askua, shinji tried to get Rei into the new world (Rei being Eve, sumisive and very doll-like), but in the end, he forgives asuka and plans to give her another chance.
