Holy shit how brain dead
I talked about their hands because hands have meaning in NGE/EoE (In Rebuild too)
To give you a few examples: Shinji watches his hand covered in blood, his relation to Rei; His hand covered in semen, his relation to Asuka; He rejects Misato's hand but he accepts Kaworu's. Shinji uses his (the Eva's) hand to kill Kaworu
When he imagines his mom (that looks like Misato) she has her hands on his face, when he sees Yui for the last time she puts her hand on his face.
Asuka and Shinji's hands do not connect in the end. Shinji uses his hands to choke Asuka, trying to kill her.
Asuka's hand on his face later reminds him of his mom and how much he fucked up
