At the gathering, Dragonstar reports that one of their clan's warriors, Bleedinglove, was found dead in the camp the previous day, bleeding from his throat. He says they don't know what happened, but he believes Lilyblossom killed him. All of the clans 'boo' at the sound of Lilyblossom's name. A cat asks if they wont have anything to worry about now that Lilyblossom's gone. Dragonstar says "I guess", and then lets the cats talk under the sacred truce of StarClan.
It is later revealed that it was not Lillyblossom who killed Bleedinglove, but a badger. While a group of badgers are conspiring to take over the clan territories, one of the badgers tells their leader they are greatly outnumbered by the cats. Their leader replies that judging by how the cats reacted when the badgers killed one of their warriors, they will not last long because they will be too scared.
