Jasiri reunites with her friend, Kion

The Lion Guard defends the Pride Lands from a three-way attack by Janja's clan, Kiburi's float, and Reirei's pack. During the attack, Bunga attempts a complicated move with a stick, but performs it incorrectly and injures himself.

Eventually, the Guard defeats the Outlanders, who retreat to the Outlands. Bunga struggles to walk from his injury, and the rest of the team encourages him to visit Rafiki. However, Bunga refuses, insisting that he is fine.

Jasiri inspires her clan in the "Kwetu Ni Kwetu" musical sequence

Just then, Jasiri tackles Kion to the ground, having been watching the skirmish. She comments on how strange it is that all the Outlanders have been banding together, and Kion explains that they are all fighting under Scar's banner. He offers Jasiri and her clan a place in the Pride Lands for protection, but she insists that they must protect their turf. She then gets an idea.

Jasiri returns to her clan and persuades them to start a Hyena Resistance against the Army of Scar ("Kwetu Ni Kwetu").

Rafiki trains Bunga in fighting techniques with a stick

Later, Bunga visits Rafiki and receives instruction on how to fight with a stick. Each of Bunga's attempts ends in failure, but Rafiki encourages Bunga to keep practicing regardless.

Back in the Outlands, Jasiri overhears Janja plotting with his clan to take over Mizimu Grove with Kiburi and Reirei's groups. She sends Madoa to warn the Lion Guard, while she and the rest of the clan intercept Janja's clan. The plan works, with the Lion Guard defeating Kiburi and Reirei in Mizimu Grove, and Jasiri and her clan blocking Janja's access to the Pride Lands with a rock slide.

The Hyena Resistance causes a rockslide, blocking Janja and his clan's access to the Pride Lands

Janja returns to the volcano and informs Scar of what has happened. A displeased Scar plans another attack, this time on Big Springs, with Kiburi leading. Once again, the Hyena Resistance is able to thwart the attack. Scar orders another attack under Reirei's leadership, but the Hyena Resistance thwarts this attack as well.

After the three failed attacks, Jasiri celebrates the Hyena Resistance's success with Kion on the border of the Outlands and the Pride Lands. Unbeknownst to them, Njano and Shupavu overhear the conversation and report back to Scar. Scar questions Janja on Jasiri's status, as Janja had previously reported that Jasiri had fallen into a lava pit. Janja then confesses that the Lion Guard had come to save her. Scar orders Janja to lay a false trail for the Lion Guard and then attack Jasiri's clan.

The Hyena Resistance is surrounded by the Army of Scar

Madoa informs the Lion Guard that Scar is planning their biggest attack yet on Mizimu Grove, unaware that it is a trap. She returns to Jasiri, only for the clan to be set upon by Janja, Kiburi, and Reirei.

Across the Pride Lands, the Lion Guard wonders why the attack is taking so long. Ono scouts the Outlands and catches sight of Jasiri's clan being attacked. The Lion Guard rushes to their aid and defeats the three groups.

Jasiri saves Janja from a lava pit

In the commotion, Janja is knocked into a lava pit, and Jasiri saves him. Janja is stunned at her willingness to save him, and Jasiri explains that he could join the Hyena Resistance instead of allying with Scar. After a moment of hesitation, Janja refuses. However, Njano and Shupavu note his hesitation and vow to inform Scar.

After the battle, Jasiri and Kion solidify their alliance in overthrowing Scar.
