A family of jackals led by Reirei sneaks into the Pride Lands using Reirei's son, Dogo, who pretends to need rescue by the Lion Guard. When the Lion Guard allows the pup into the Pride Lands, Dogo's family is quick to follow, and Reirei begs Kion to let her stay with her son. Though reluctant, Kion concedes and makes Reirei promise to not cause any more trouble.
After the Lion Guard departs, Reirei sings "Jackal Style" to her family, teaching them how to act like jackals. In doing so, the family angers a multitude of thieved Pridelanders, and Kion returns to sort out the situation. When confronted by the lion, Reirei pleads for another chance, and Kion reluctantly allows her to attend Kupatana.
At the celebration, Reirei and her family attack the animals, and it's up to the Lion Guard to stop them. Once they have been wrangled into the center of Mizimu Grove, Simba exiles them back to the Outlands with an earth-shaking roar.
Tamaa the drongo mimics Goigoi's voice in order to scare small animals away from their food.
