To Frank R. Masi:

Misato is still crying.
She hears a sound, as if a ball of water had hit the ground.
She turns her head.
The naked Shinji lies before the red core.
>>So is the Adam embryo the real deal or is it a clone?<<
The real deal. Gendo had the embryo implanted on his hand, remember?
To Mr. Forrest:
>>They did ask to speak with her after the battle with the 16th Angel<<
Hmm? They did?
>>I doubt they would've used it like that, however I'd say we don't know as
that is never mentioned nor shown.<<
We do "know" that Lilith seemed to have been lying dormant underneath the
golf courses of Hakone, right?
>>Well, they were tampering with his ATField and core using the lance...the
lance, IIRC (feel free to correct me), zeroed his atfield and released him
in his Giant of life form. He might have then worn out, sort of like a poked
balloon, and shrunk to regain strength (Kai says it keeps regenerating
despite being in bakelite).<<
So . . . what keeps the Lance from doing the same thing with Lilith? The
fact that NERV isn't using it the same way Katsuragi's men were?
Of course, I have a theory, but . . . well, hmm. Several clues:
1) The Lance (and Lance-copies) has only demonstrated it's piercing ability
with it's "blade" side.
2) The Lance-copies were able to "identify" the direction in which the ATF
of UNIT-02 was, and morph accordingly, so that the "blade" side was pointed
in that direction.
3) The original Lance became double "bladed" upon the completion of the TI.
4) All the following reactions were different, in some way:
Lance/Lilith (blade, body, ?, slow change to LCL)
Lance/UNIT-01 (handle, core, approach/acceleration, merge to become the Tree
Lance/Adam (?, ?, ?, Second Impact)
Lance/15th Angel (blade, ?, acceleration, instant destruction?)
Lance-copy/UNIT-02 (blade, core/body, acceleration, ATF piercing)
Lance-copy/MP EVAs (blade?, core, none, Core destruction)
5) The Lance (and all copies) were single "bladed" in ATF-piercing mode
until the Third Impact.
6) In normal mode, the Lance-copies were double "bladed."
