Well, I just saw the cut piece there, so I'll change my advice, and my optometrist.

Yeah, break it out as previously mentioned and replace it.

Thanks for your recommendations. I will attempt to remove the tile. I will start with the middle shelf one as that is only like a 2" tile as opposed to the other two that have a 5" tile. That way I can reevaluate after the first one to see if it is worth continuing on the other two.

I don't have anymore hydro ban and can't get anymore for a few days. Can I get the red gard or mapei aqua defense from home Depot or Lowe's to patch the little hole? Will it play nice with the hydro ban ? It looks like mapei and hydro ban have same ingredients according to SDS info....zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.

I think it will work. I wouldn't think twice about just leaving it as is either. The amount of water migration you'll have in that area of the shower for the next hundred years, as far as can tell, won't cause any problems with that little ol bitty area of hardi not waterproofed.

Very tedious...I used a punch to crack tile and then used a tiny chisel to peck away at the layer of thinset in between the tile and waterproofing membrane. Mostly good definitely some tears in the waterproofing that I took a razor knife and scored clean lines to maybe give new waterproofing membrane something to bond to. Thinset had a very good bond to tile and waterproofing.

Tile and grout is complete. I caulked corners and shelf with TEC matching standard white silicone caulk to go with the powergrout 550 standard white I used. It has been 48 hrs and still looks really dark and more grey. Anyone else have problems with color not matching for TEC products. I used GE silicone in between the tub and tile because that will match good with tub.

That's a bummer Nick. Otherwise your job is A game. That's why I just grout and don't caulk. I prefer to chance a minor crack vs a racing stripe.
