Kaji begins to make clandestine investigations into Nerv's dark secrets, after which he, Misato, and Ritsuko attend a wedding. Meanwhile, Rei and Shinji stay after class to clean up while Asuka goes on a blind date. Shinji meets Gendo at his mother's grave. Later that night, at Misato's apartment, Asuka kisses Shinji out of boredom, nearly suffocating him. Misato finds out that Kaji is a spy, but he shows her that Nerv is hiding things from her. He shows her what he believes to be Adam, the first Angel, which is being kept in Nerv headquarters.
