In this issue we see a return to a more fantasy orientated story line triggered by Diana’s desire to “pop home and see her mother”. In issue 179 when the Amazons left Earth for another dimension, this was described as being a final farewell for Diana, who would probably never see her mother or her Amazon sisters again. Yet she had already returned to Paradise Island in issues 183 and 184 and the fact that the Amazons were once more referred to in this story line indicated perhaps at least some reluctance on the part of Mike Sekowsky to distance Wonder Woman totally from her Marston roots.
