    Seance of Terror

    Spiritualism on Wonder Woman. Diana is a believer in magic whilst Steve is the skeptic. Suprising considering he's seen what Wonder Woman can do and there's no rational explanation for that. Great scene where Diana manages to spin into Wonder Woman by rolling off the conveyer belt but by the time she's recovered the villains are gone, defies your expectations. Psychic photography was all the rage in the late 70s and also during the Victorian era, no less than Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle a believer. Does Diana ever pick up an object that doesn't knock her out? (TWICE!) Steve actually takes Diana off the case and tells her to have a holiday, their argument about it all quite heated. That's one BAD wig Lynda wears in her merry widow role. Unusual to have an episode of a show with such a large kids following dealing with the occult, nowadays you think the Christian right would be outraged. Once again this is another storyline used in The New Avengers, a lot of similarities between the 2 series. If Mathew's power is real why does his guardian need to rip people off, surely his kid's powers are amazing enough to make money from anyway? At the end of the ep Steve makes Diana take a holiday, does she go back to Paradise Island to visit her family?

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The flute music played in the background during the séance is the same music played by Hamlin Rule to hypnotize his victims in the episode "The Pied Piper" from Season 2.

    • Diana Prince is dropped from a very high elevation in an attempt to kill her and yet, she survives without a scratch. As she hits the ground and starts rolling, the rolling apparently is enough to transform her in Wonder Woman.

    • Goof: The first ambassador is handed three photographs and drops one outside the car. In the car, he still has three photographs in long shots but only two in close-ups.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • (Steve Trevor takes Diana off the assignment and removes her clearance to access data from IRA. Ira gives her data anyway because...)
      IRA: Major Trevor said nothing about clearance for Wonder Woman.

  • NOTES (2)

    • When Wonder Woman jumps up through the trap door, the shot is nothing more than footage of her jumping down through the door and then reversed. If you watch how her hair moves, it's quite obvious.

    • Adam Ageli (Bakru) was credited as a guest star, but shown in the end credits.
