When Webster encounters some ThunderClan cats, Victor brings several kittypets, including Scarlet, who Jessy points out to be the ginger she-cat behind him. A fight soon follows, and Bramblestar faces Victor and Scarlet, eyes gleaming and shoulder fur bristling. They try to thrust him to the ground, and Bramblestar lets himself go limp with the two kittypets on top of him. Scarlet calls him a coward, and thought that they could fight. Bramblestar does not reply, and then strikes out at Scarlet and Victor with his forepaws. Bramblestar lets out a second blow that catches Scarlet across her ear, and she barely stops, shaking her head to clear it, and then leaps at Bramblestar, Victor joining her.
Bramblestar struggles under Scarlet's and Victor's weight, but a moment later, Ivypool darts to slash at Scarlet from a side, while Snowpaw copies her on the other side, leaving Scarlet unsure on where to defend herself. As Bramblestar has Victor pinned to the ground, he asks if he would give in, and Scarlet, along with the other kittypets, barring Riga, who had fled prior, gather around him with threatening looks. Bramblestar informs them that they should the wild cats hunt in the forest, and Scarlet asks why. In the end, Victor agrees to let ShadowClan hunt in the forest in peace.
