Screaming Javelins Am I missing something? Who's this Mariposa guy and when did he meet Diana before? Why is he skydiving and why did Diana think he'd drowned in the North Sea? To judge by his comments he is the monarch of a non-existent country and owns a fleet of submarines. A great performance nevertheless from Henry Gibson, homicidally deranged yet somehow charming. His exit is actually pretty creepy but at the same time he seems to have a thing for Diana/WW with the flowers and chocolates. And to judge by her expression when she examines the flower he left her and his suit maybe she's at least intrigued by him. Guest starring Rick Springfield who would go on to have a huge hit with Glee favourite 'Jessie's Girl' and would play Apollo's brother Zac in the original BSG (has the notoriety of being the first person to die in the series). Note Diana thinks that the roses are from Steve, hmmmm? Of course they're not and she get's chloroformed, again! Maybe I'm trying to find logic in the actions of a madman but surely the authorities would disqualify WW from the Olympics as they'd consider her magic belt and bracelets cheating?

This ep of course played on the excitement to the build up towards the 1980 Moscow Olympics, the irony being that the US would boycott them in protest at the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan. Interestingly at the end WW tells the athletes they can compete for whichever country they want, which may be a subtle dig at the Warsaw Pact's restrictions on their athletes due to their habit of defecting whilst visiting the West. 7/10, pretty interesting
