- Dovewing recalls Jayfeather's new piece of information to the Three - that there is a fourth cat, and Dovewing wonders if she is good enough, and she walks into the forest, only to come on the ShadowClan border, where she sees Tigerheart, with a patrol. Tigerheart knows she is there and tells her not to worry, for he will scare of the patrol. Tigerheart tells his Clanmates, Ratscar and Rowanclaw, that there was a rabbit that escaped into ThunderClan territory. Ratscar counters him by informing him that he didn't smell any rabbit, but Rowanclaw urges Ratscar to come on, because Blackstar wants them to chase a dog running loose on the shore. Tigerheart offers to stay behind to check the border out, and the two ShadowClan cats leave.
- Tigerheart assks Dovewing if he was looking for him, and Dovewing is shocked, believing that Tigerheart must think she's a wide-eyed kit and a traitor. The two quarrel about Tigerheart sticking up for Dawnpelt, when she falsely accused Jayfeather of murdering Flametail. Tigerheart asks Dovewing if she would abandon Ivypool if she did something terrible.
