Agamemnon is told to stop the rout
You are still ZEUS. Briefly, moved by Agamemnon, you let the Greeks regroup - but then it's the Trojans on top again, and soon Hector has the Greeks pinned behind their wall. Suddenly you see Hera and Athena all kitted up ready to drive out of Olympus to help their darling Greeks. You blow a fuse, and send a very cross message to your daughter. You expect this sort of thing from your wife, but Athena has really enraged you. You threaten to blast her with a thunderbolt.
