The souls are the red orbs. If you notice, they all return to Earth when
Lillith/Adam dies. They bleed from Lillith/Adam and LEAVE Unit 01. I just
rewatched it. You should too.

But you can't say "Shinji and Asuka have to be Adam and Eve, because of the
symbolism!" Yui flat out says that everyone else can return to normal, and
return their bodies to normal. You're going against the series!
And state one moment when there is Adam/Eve symbolism. Rei and Kaworu have
that imagery, but not Shinji and Asuka.

Anno just had Shinji/Asuka return first, so that they could have that last
moment alone. Everyone else WILL return to normal.
MugenHunter! "Why else would that big speech about life be there!"
