One part, for me anyway, that stuck out was the crucifixion by the Mass-Production EVA Units of EVA Unit 01 in The End of Evangelion. I just can't see the reason why EVA Unit 01 was crucified when Third Impact occurred. What was hoped to be gained by crucifying a mech of all things?
What was the reason for EVA Unit 01's crucifixion? Was it to start Third Impact?
I have not read the manga behind Evangelion, so I know I am missing something.
