About this Episode

At last, we reach the divisive and frustrating climax of Neon Genesis Evangelion. In a pair of avant-garde episodes, the show abandons its sci-fi action premise entirely and leans all the way into the psychedelic clip show mania of its “Angel Interrogation” sequences. Joseph and Ian break this cavalcade of images and references down as best they can, and recap the well-publicized but little-understood production issues that led to these episodes. Sure, they’re odd, but do they abandon the plot and disregard the audience? Either way, it just wouldn’t be Eva without them but according to your hosts, the finale of the show is better than you remember.
