Original version - which they *promised* to Tsurumaki - was to end with Rei clone #2 dying, so Rebuild of Eva 3 can focus on rounding out Rei clone #3 as a more distinct character.

Also been suggested as an Ultraman reference:
Given how often Ultraman is mentioned by Anno etc. (eg. the 2.0 CRC
specifically mentions it), and how rarely Utena is, Ultraman strikes
me as far more plausible.
