Tala is working in her mystic workshop to remove the Annihilator's vulnerability. Felix Faust, trapped in a mirror, watches and taunts her. Her efforts fail and Faust notes that she rescued his soul from Hades only to capture it, and he offers a solution. She recites the incantation but nothing happens with the Annihilator. However, it does free Faust, who banishes her to the mirror. He then merges his essence with the Annhilator and leaves...

Episode Quotes
Felix Faust: Still, it's hard to believe you can't solve your Annihilator problem. The answer is simplicity itself.
Tala: Are you going to tell me, or just keep tormenting me?!?

Tala: This is really bad, isn't it?
Felix Faust: You have no idea...

Flash: I always thought the reason you two don't get along is that you're so much alike.
Shayera and Wonder Woman: Like her?!?

Flash: You could at least talk to each other.
Shayera: The pasta's good.
Wonder Woman: It's the sauce.
Shayera: This isn't going to work, is it?
Wonder Woman: Not a chance.

Flash: I had dinner with two women at the same time...cuz I'm a stud.

Wonder Woman: Flash?!?
Hermes: No, no - it's the original speedster.

Hermes: I've got something for you. It's pretty important – (Zeus) paid for overnight service. Here it is.
Wonder Woman: (reading scroll) "For a good time, call Podemanus..."
Hermes: Whoa. Wrong scroll. I think I got a shot. It's her cell number.

Hermes: By decree of Zeus, Father of Olympus, it is so ordered that Diana of Themyscyira will travel to Tartarus and set right that which has been disturbed.
Wonder Woman: He's telling me to go to...?
Hermes: Basically.

Hermes: Felix Faust is on the loose again.
Wonder Woman: Felix Faust is dead.
Hermes: Yes, and pretty upset about it, too.

Wonder Woman: As far as I'm concerned, they deserve each other. Why should I care about this?
Hermes: You mean, other then the "direct order from the gods" thing?

Wonder Woman: You're doing this because you want to prove yourself to me, aren't you? Well, you don't have to. I forgave you a long time ago.
Shayera: Did I ever ask you for your forgiveness?

Hippolyta: Diana! You know you're not supposed to step foot on this island. The gods have decreed that...
Shayera: The gods are decreeing stuff all the time around here... (Hippolyta glares at her)'am.

Hippolyta: Bring my daughter back to me.
Shayera: Nothing to worry about. She's almost as good at kicking butt as I am.

Shayera: (to attacking demons) That's right – I'm an angel. You can mess with me if you want to, but I don't think you want to mess with the boss. (the demons flee) If we're lucky, they'll all be that dumb.

Shayera: Where's Faust?
Abnegazar: Let me think... oh, yeah, he's over there! No, wait, he's over there! No, there.
Shayera: One more answer and it better be the right one.
Abnegazar: Or what, you'll kill me? Gosh, I might end up suffering eternal torment as punishment for my sins... oh wait, I already am!

Abnegazar: Now could you please take this rope off of me? I'm a demon. The truth hurts.

Felix Faust: (in Hades' library) I'm in Heaven--figuratively speaking.
Shayera: We're revoking your library card.

Shayera: Aren't you cold in that outfit?
Wonder Woman: Not really.
Shayera: Of course not--the Princess doesn't get cold. The Princess doesn't even sweat in the Fire Pits of Tartarus.
Wonder Woman: I do too sweat.
Shayera: Please-–you glow. I wouldn't be surprised if you never have to...

Shayera: My mace disrupts magic. What's that tin suit run on again?

Wonder Woman: What about us – are we good?
Shayera: Like oil and vinegar. We go together but we don't mix.
Wonder Woman: Works for me.
