There is a new girl with her and as introductions happen, including to Steve, a monster appears that only Diana can see. She leaps at it and knocks the new girl, “nifty” over. She’s upset but Steve covers telling her Diana saw the ghost of a spy. Diana says it must have been a spot on her glasses and takes them off to clean them. Etta looks at her and tells her how much she looks like Wonder Woman without her glasses. She brushes the comment off and takes her leave. Steve and Etta are concerned about Diana but Nifty is still upset. The weird ghost seems to take over Nifty. At headquarters, Diana tells Darnell about the professor’s breakthrough.
