Countered by the show: such a property is also diplayed by the
positron rifle and, through the added use of an ATField, by
Progressive Knives as well.

We do not know whether the Lance pierces the ATField through any
special property or just sheer energy. Actually, that is beside the
point of the show and therefore left unexplained. In any event, it
just doesn't make much sense per se that she is bandaged since
everybody has 'died' and has therefore been turned into blob at one
point in the movie. It only makes sense in terms of aesthetics and, as
I said, "ends meeting". Visually speaking, it adds drama. We're
talking about a show where, when Asuka jumps with her Eva, her hair is
influenced by some imaginary air resistance that just isn't there.
