You forgot a major one: Shinji saw his mother inside the Eva either when he was in the Duroc sea or when he synchronized to 400% with the Eva (I forget which, but I believe it was the former). And his continual references to feeling warm and safe in there, like in his mother's womb.
>4. I know that the dummy plugs contained Rei clones, but couldn't the Angels ALSO be feasible as somehow related to the Rei cloning?
To answer that, spoils some things. Just remember that Kaworu said that he and Rei were just alike.....
Also, DO NOT go to that Eva FAQ page someone posted earlier until after you see the movie(s). It spoils FAR too much. After you watch the movie, then you should go there to answer any questions you might still have.
