Just finished the series and EoE. Slowpoke etc.

Turns out that Gendo is actually a big emotional coward - a badass version of Shinji.

Behind his whole cool facade, he is actually even more insecure than his son. Who no matter how pathetic he has been, his final decision is to remain an individual and to actually cope with reality.

In the end, Gendo is the one who runs away.
