Why did Kaji confuse Lilith and Adam in this scene?

He retrieved the Adam embrion earlier so he should had known the difference, right?

Adam was Adam during the writing of this episode. Fuyutsuki calls the thing underground Adam a few episodes back. It's only until episode 17 or 18 do they retcon Adam into Lilith. Any other questions?
>>
>>121008569
He thought it had grown up, maybe,
>>
>>121008569
>Why did Kaji confuse Lilith and Adam in this scene?
NERV fed him misinformation about what they did with the embryo. So that, among other things, he'd feed misinformation to SEELE.

I don't think SEELE was aware Lilith was being grown at all, or they would have sent in the UN a lot sooner.
>>
Because EVA's pretense at a plot is shit and Anno didn't have a clue what he was doing with it.
>>
>>121008569
>He retrieved the Adam embrion earlier so he should had known the difference, right?
Not necessarily. Gendou may have misled Kaji about what happened with Adam once he delivered it.

>retcon
Or, you know, it could have been that characters were misinformed to begin with.
>>
Do we have any news on the BD? I'm really hyped for them.
>>
>>121008569
When I saw this the first time, I thought that they had censored the blood.

It wasn't after EoE that I realized it was tang.
>>

Or, you know, Fuyutsuki says its Adam in the basement in Episode 13.
>>
>>121008749
>>121008828
So Kaji thought the embryo had grown and wasn't aware of the existence of Lilith?

Makes sense, thanks.

Fuyutsuki is not necessarily in possession of all of the facts.
>>
>>121008911
No it's september
>>
the misinformation agents are in this very thread
>>
>>121008915
He was talking to Gendo. And what makes you think say Fuyutsuki isn't in possession of all of the facts? That's horseshit, there's nothing that implies that in the show.
>>
>>121008927
No it's August 8th.
>>
>>121008856
Gendo references Adam in that episode, and it's in proximity to the Prinbow Box, which isn't necessarily in the basement (though it's hard to tell, since that basement has pretty much everything in it).
>>
>>121008569
so just how many things were retconned? Did the FAR actually exist in anyone's mind when the series was first produced?
>>
>>121009086
He's talking about Lilith. Why is it so hard to admit that Anno is a hack and didn't have everything planned out before hand?
>>
>>121008910
Everything's speculation, mind you. If the writers had attempted to explain every single thread running in the background of the show, there wouldn't have been time for anything.

And yes, that's a combination of laziness plus the fact that they wrote as they went along. But better that they didn't try to force an explicit explanation for everything--they would have fucked up.

So we can have Red or Blue threads, a Jet Alone thread, a Ritsuko thread, a Misato thread, a Kaworu thread and a Shinji thread but no Based Husbando thread?
>>
>>121009122
I assume that part of the scenario would have included the hypothetical origins of the angels, but they probably decided pretty early on that their origins wouldn't really be plot-relevant and better left ambiguous in the series itself.

Since the angels are really just acting on their nature and not on malevolent intent from an external influence, whoever compelled that intent isn't really important.


Since eva obviously borrowed a lot of its aesthetic from biblical texts, you can think of it like how God's influence in a lot of bible stories is obvious and plain as day, but he rarely if ever appears as an actual character, and almost always speaks through a proxy.

It adds to the mystique if you know the angels are harbingers of some unknowable entity.
>>
>>121009003
The fact that everyone's keeping secrets from everyone else and lying their arses off about various things. Fuyutsuki not being aware of exactly what being was nailed to the cross in their basement could be an instance of that.

Or maybe it is a retcon. Personally I wouldn't jump to "lolretcon" as the default answer for something that initially seems like a contradiction, though...

Because Kaiji always makes the wrong assumptions
>>
>>121009286
It's not the first time they retconned something so that should be your default answer in a case like this. Its better than assuming what characters know anyway.

He's not dead.

Pointless infodump. He'll probably die somehow, give Misato more grief and reason to hate everything.

If he's not he will be.

Forcing Shinji into involuntary servitude in his new watermelon farm.

>>121008569
He didn't, Anno changed his mind at the last minute and decided that it should be Lilith instead of Adam.
>>
>>121008569
Retcon. Though if you want to justify it you can say Kaji thought that the embryo he stole was growing inside the basement.
>>
>>121009473
>Kaji grows watermelons
>His friend is a nigger
Is it a fluke of something more?
>>
>>121010101

Why is Misato surprised to learn what's in Terminal Dogma, but when she later talks about the effects of the Spear of Longinus during the battle against Armisael everyone knows what she's talking about, even the bridge bunnies?
>>
>>121010411
Dammit, meant Arael, not Armisael.
>>
>>121010411
After Kaji shows her Adam, she thinks they're keeping it down there because it will start an impact. She realizes this is wrong after Gendo makes Rei throw the lance in episode 23.
>>
>>121010508
But Misato, head of the Tactical Division, initially has no idea there's even an Angel/Seed of Life down there, but come ep 23 it seems every generic mook already knows.
>>
>>121010915
What do you mean every generic mook knew? No one knew except Gendo and Fuytsuki.
>>
>>121010915
They could have known about the Lance without knowing about Lilith. It could have just been debriefed as a generic AT field piercing weapon only to be used in the most dire of situations.
>>
>>121009003
>there's nothing that implies that in the show.
except for the fact that it's lilith in the basement and not adam

that's a pretty definitive implication

If Fuyutsuki was in possession of all of the facts, then he would have all the facts. That's what 'in possession of all the facts' means.
>>
>>121011881
If it was a retcon, and it was, then Fuyutsuki saying its Adam in the basement would be him 'in possession of all the facts'.
>>
>>121008569
I guess he expected Gendo to grow the embryo.
>>
>>121012048
I think your brain might not be working.

It was NOT Adam in the basement, it was Lilith.

So if he thinks it's Adam, he is wrong. Which means he is not in possession of the facts.
>>
>>121011881
So I see you missed the entire point of that discussion.
>>
>>121012269
I see you think there was a point to that discussion.
