"I would be careful criticizing me this much," Athena said.

5. Athena Sends a Warning to Petra:

After Athena showed up late to the team's first preseason game and then struggled during the squad's photo shoot, she has a meeting with Petra.

"Athena was late for the first game, and she screwed up the photo shoot," Petra says. "Both instances are unacceptable and this really pisses me off."

The two talk about Athena's mistakes and Petra tells Athena that she doesn't want to "regret" her decision to make her co-captain.

So how does Athena react?

She says, "I don't think that there's someone that could do the job better than I'm doing, so I would be careful criticizing me this much."

During their meeting, Petra tells Athena that she has to "step up."

At the end of the episode, Petra watches Athena lead practice and she's impressed!

"Finally I saw some true leadership there," Petra says. "And I think that she is strong enough to pull this team through as a co-captain."

Petra then tells Athena that she did "such a good job."
