The girls are back from competing in France and Payson is not up to going to the Rock since her petition to be back on the National Team was denied. Sasha informs Payson that she has to reinvent herself as an artistic gymnast, but Payson is having little faith in her ability to do so.
After hearing the reason for Emily's suspension in France, Sasha gives Kaylie a speech about leadership and keeping the girls focused. Kaylie decides to give Payson and Emily promise rings to remind them of their Olympic goal and reinforce their promise to forsake their biggest distraction- boys. And as if the timing couldn't be worse, Austin, the bad boy Olympic Gold Medalist the girls met in France arrives ready to train at the Rock. Austin begins arranging for his training equipment to be set up in the gym.
Steve Tanner's mother, Gram comes for a visit and Lauren immediately makes plans to sabotage her dad and Chloe's relationship by making Chloe look bad in front of Gram. Lauren's plan backfires and Gram expresses disappointment in Lauren. Kaylie and Austin continue to argue over equipment space at the Rock and they decide to battle it out, boys against girls, with the boys performing on the girls' apparatuses and vice versa.
