The resuscitated skeleton of the Third Angel escapes its confinement and tries to break out of NERV's Arctic Bethany Base, but Makinami Mari Illustrious, a new pilot, launches Evangelion Provisional Unit-05 and destroys the Angel by self-destructing the EVA and safely ejecting at the last moment.
Meanwhile, Ikari Shinji and his father Gendou visit Yui's grave. Shortly after, the Seventh Angel attacks, but is quickly dispatched by the newly arrived Unit-02 and its headstrong pilot, Shikinami Asuka Langley. Kaji Ryouji delivers to Gendou a suitcase containing the mysterious "Key of Nebuchadnezzar" and notes that the destruction of Unit-05 went as planned.
Gendou and Fuyutsuki Kouzou then visit NERV's lunar compound, Tabgha Base, to view the construction of Evangelion Mark.06, which is noted as being different from the other EVAs. They are denied permission to land, but briefly see Nagisa Kaworu sitting in space without a space suit. During Gendou's absence, the Eighth Angel attacks Tokyo-3. Shinji, Asuka, and Rei kill it in an improvised plan devised by Katsuragi Misato. Both Unit-00 and Unit-01 are damaged. Gendou returns and asks to have them both repaired, but SEELE only allows the repair of Unit-01...
