For now, I'd go with the coincidence. Also, all three Reis witness Gendo's 
demise, and the last one isn't technically dead.

Possibly a loner that requires a stronger anti-atfield to be de-individualized, 
but who knows.

Keel wishes for nonexistance, so in a sense what he sees is what he's going to

The significance of Kaworu being reflected in Rei I's eyes when she dies 
is...obscure at best.
