- If you look at the operators, they wear veils over their mouths while speaking to their androids in the field. The only YoRHa member who doesn’t wear either a blindfold or a veil over her mouth is the Commander. So, the operators must (unknowingly) lie to the androids - "Speak no evil". The soldiers must be blinded to the truth, so they wear blindfolds - "See no evil". Whenever 2B and 9S have their blindfolds removed or torn off, it’s usually during significant reveals or scenes that impact them emotionally. It’s not a coincidence that the few times 2B has her blindfold removed is when she’s at her most emotional— this is the real 2B, not the “mask” or persona she puts on for others.
