She describes how they first saw each other in the forest, and how Storm could easily see the love that glowed in his eyes passionately. Thunder is puzzled, asking how things are so different, comparing the supposed love in his eyes to how Clear Sky turned him away from his own camp. Storm explains that the love is still there, but Clear Sky doesn't know what to do with it. She assures Thunder that he can help Clear Sky find out how he can find a way. Thunder has a vision, in which he can see his father, his tail and head raised as he paces across the moor.

After Turtle Tail is introduced to the new kits, she and Gray Wing talk, telling him about a new cat that joined her and Bumble in their Twoleg nest. After she confirms she is staying with the moor cats, Gray Wing finds out that she is pregnant - studying her swollen belly. He asks her how it happened, and Turtle Tail replies densely that she made a mistake, saying that at first Tom was nice and friendly, but then he became cruel. She finds it necessary to tell Gray Wing that if she had kitted in the Twolegplace, then her kits would have been taken away from her as soon as they could live without her milk. Shattered Ice spots Turtle Tail, and at first, Turtle Tail assumes he would be happy to have her back, but instead, he is hostile, taking her to Tall Shadow - the moor cats' appointed leader. Tall Shadow welcomes Turtle Tail warmly, explaining what has happened since she was gone - including the story of how Jagged Peak broke his leg and was exiled from Clear Sky's group.

3. Old Friends - February 19th, 2016
They run into old friends, Wind and Gorse, who explain that hunting has been rather complicated since Clear Sky had forbidden them from hunting in the forest. They describe how they had caught prey with two rogues, named Thorn and Dew. They elaborate on how, prior to the mountain cats joining, they'd had shared in peace and harmony, but after, the two rogues had threatened to tear their fur off if they got anywhere near their prey. After Turtle Tail, Gray Wing, Gorse, Wind, and Rainswept Flower hunt, they meet a loner called River Ripple, who accepts their offer in sharing prey.

4. The Forest - February 26th, 2016
Thunder isn't actually missing - for he goes out hunting with Shattered Ice. Shattered Ice proves himself to be a more three dimensional cat, not acting as rude as he did to Turtle Tail, but instead, kindly telling Thunder he should go back with his kin to protect him from the dangers of the forest. When Thunder protests that he wants to hunt, Shattered Ice lets out a defeated sigh and starts to teach him how to hunt, giving him advice on his hunting crouch. However, the lesson is disrupted by Leaf and Petal, who are about to attack.
With luck on their side, Moon Shadow and Falling Feather appear from the bushes, fending off the possible attack. When they are asked to leave, Thunder asks why he can't see his father, and all cats are confused on the answer - feebly explaining that Clear Sky can't pick favorites, having to help every cat survive. As they start to depart, Thunder hears dogs - the same dogs that attacked Gray Wing and Turtle Tail. They spot Jagged Peak, also being pursued by the dog. They head off the dogs before they can attack Jagged Peak. As Shattered Ice goes back to camp for help, Thunder tries to protect Jagged Peak, only to have his efforts wasted as the tunnel they had taken shelter in starts to bury Jagged Peak alive. However, Wind and Gorse rescue Gray Wing's brother, saving his life.

Gray Wing is thankful to the rogues for saving Jagged Peak's life, he asks Tall Shadow if they could join the moor cats.

With worries pressing on him due to how easy the dogs had chased Jagged Peak, Gray Wing confesses his anxieties about living on the moor to Turtle Tail. Turtle Tail comments on how quickly they ran to out chase the dogs, how Thunder and Jagged Peak could have found such a good hiding place, and where the other cats could have been to come to the rescue so quick. Gray Wing realizes that she is speaking sense, and realizes that what's around him is truly his home. Shattered Ice becomes infuriated with Tall Shadow for letting Wind and Gorse leave, and he tells her to her face that she has no leadership skills - declaring that Gray Wing should be their rightful leader. However, Cloud Spots heavily disagrees, and Shattered Ice rudely insults him, leading to a fight between the two denmates. Gray Wing pulls them apart. Several cats agree that Gray Wing should be their leader, but Gray Wing has more worries on his mind as he listens to Jagged Peak putting himself down. He wonders when his brother will ever come to like himself again; or if he will.
6. Bumble Sting - March 11th, 2016
Turtle Tail is starting her kitting. She gives birth to three healthy kits, and she musters on how it'd be nice for them to have a father - a clear question to Gray Wing, asking him if he would like to be the father. Gray Wing, wanting to put Turtle Tail's request out of his head, dwells in sleep, and he sees Stoneteller, who warns him that he will turn his paws on a new path, commenting on how he may be the new leader of the moor cats. When Gray Wing visits Turtle Tail, he finds out that she has named her kits: Owl Eyes, Sparrow Fur, and Pebble Heart. When they take the kits out to explore, Turtle Tail runs into Bumble, who has new wounds on her. Turtle Tail is shocked, asking who gave them to her. Bumble merely replies that Tom did it, who has been bullying her ever since Turtle Tail left. Bumble begs to join Turtle Tail and her cats, but the two are uneasy, eventually deciding to take Bumble to Tall Shadow. However, Tall Shadow refuses, giving her an escort to her Twolegs. Bumble is outraged, and calls after Turtle Tail, telling her she will never forgive her.
7. The Fire: Part 1 - March 18th, 2016
Gray Wing wakes up, smelling smoke. He realizes the forest is on fire, and calls to his denmates. They realize that Clear Sky and his cats will get the worst of it, and they run to their aide. They save the cats caught in the fire, and River Ripple helps. Thunder is especially courageous in the fire - helping each cat escape and even finding a stream for the cats to soak themselves in, then to go rescue the others, despite the terrible danger they are all in. They pull through, and manage to save the forest cats. After being escorted out of the forest by River Ripple, Thunder and Gray Wing realize that they hadn't seen Clear Sky, and call for him desperately. He answers their calls, and the two brothers are overjoyed. It doesn't last long, for the forest starts to burn again, and they advise Clear Sky to safety. They escort Clear Sky and his cats to their camp, as long until the fire wears off.
8. The Son: Part 2 - March 19th, 2016
As they walk together, Gray Wing proudly tells Clear Sky about how Thunder saved his life. For the first time in ages, Clear Sky acknowledges his son - even praising him, and makes a joke that leads the other cats to laugh. However, Thunder doesn't answer, instead asks Clear Sky if he loved his mother when meeting her. Clear Sky answers yes, yet there is no time to elaborate as they must return to camp. Tall Shadow asks River Ripple if he wants to come, yet he refuses, wishing them the best of luck. After returning to the hollow, Clear Sky and Thunder go hunting together, only to be ambushed by a swarm of rats. They work together to defeat them, and Clear Sky praises him, asking if Gray Wing taught him that. Thunder denies it, and Clear Sky tells him he learned something new today. Clear Sky explains to Thunder how he decided that his cats couldn't be victims, and how he protects his family - all of his family. When they return, Gray Wing scolds the two for leaving without telling any cat. Clear Sky is shocked, not knowing he had to ask permission to hunt with his son. As he stalks away, Thunder follows him, knowing he has done nothing wrong, but wondering why he feels like he betrayed Gray Wing.
9. The Arrogant: Part 3 - March 25th, 2016
Gray Wing watches the two, accepting the fact that Thunder is Clear Sky's son, but also nothing that he meant nothing to him until now. Tall Shadow walks over to Gray Wing, and out of no where, she asks if he can take over as leader. Gray Wing is shocked, and Tall Shadow admits that she was a coward, explaining how Wnid thought it was okay for her to take over, and how she was scared behind the flames, and if it weren't for Jackdaw's Cry or Thunder, she would have been dead. She also comments on how the other cats don't want her as leader. Gray Wing tries to convince her of all the good things she has done as leader, but Tall Shadow merely refuses, saying Gray Wing should take it. She adds for him not to rub it in her nose, and Gray Wing responds that he'd never dream of hurting her. He goes over to talk to Clear Sky, who is praising his son.
When he turns to Jagged Peak, he sneers at him, saying that he only survived, while Thunder took the lead and showed the other cats to leap over the flames. Jagged Peak tries to explain how he was responsible for looking after the camp, but Clear Sky cuts him off, scorning at how he stayed behind where it was safe. Gray Wing intervenes, saying how Jagged Peak has been very useful, and how they needed him. Clear Sky apologizes, but Jagged Peak doesn't buy it, saying that Clear Sky just thinks that he's a waste of space, saying that he'll never be good enough. Clear Sky tries to apologize again, but Jagged Peak limps away. Clear Sky turns to Gray Wing, saying he didn't mean to. Gray Wing scoffs, asking if he means anything. Clear Sky explains that he was trying to do the best, and Gray Wing counters on how he could do the best by humiliating his brother. Clear Sky says he can't help it, for it isn't his fault that Jagged Peak fell out of the tree, and that weak cats can't contribute to survival. Gray Wing tells him that they're all doing a good job of surviving, telling Clear Sky to relax. Clear Sky starts to praise Thunder more, commenting on how Storm was brave and that quality passed onto his son. He then asks if Thunder wants to join the forest cats.
10. The Departure: Part 4 - April 8th, 2016
Gray Wing is mortified. He tries to convince Thunder that he can think about this when he's older, and Thunder angrily tells him that he's not a kit. Thunder then asks if they don't know what tomorrow brings, and Clear Sky confirms. Thunder reminds Clear Sky how he left him on the moor, and if it weren't for Gray Wing, he wouldn't be alive. Clear Sky tells him he passed the test - apparently wanting to see if Thunder could survive without him. Gray Wing isn't fooled, disgusted how Clear Sky tries to twist his lies. Thunder agrees, and Clear Sky flashes Gray Wing a scorching look that challenges him, and Gray Wing isn't prepared for the challenge. Not yet. He knows that he has to prep Thunder for his departure. Tall Shadow makes the announcement to the moor cats that she is retiring from the post of a leader. When Clear Sky congratulates him, Gray Wing hesitantly suggests that their groups could be able to work together. Clear Sky merely gives him a fifty fifty, and prepares to leave with the other cats. Prior to his departure, he tells Gray Wing that he doubts they'll be seeing more of each other, preparing for what the future comes to hold. He comments that it makes no sense of who is leading his cats these days, and Gray Wing asks what he means. Clear Sky tells him that his group needs to be more organized.
Gray Wing struggles to control his temper as he is outright told what to do in his own camp, and he retorts that they were organized enough to save their lives. They quarrel more, but eventually, Clear Sky takes Thunder with him, cautiously asking Gray Wing if he would dare interfere with the bond of a father and son. When he doesn't answer, Clear Sky leaves. Gray Wing goes to say his last goodbyes with Thunder, reminding of how he raised him. He tells Thunder he knows him better than Thunder knows himself, and orders him to say goodbye to Hawk Swoop. When Clear Sky waits for Thunder, annoyed at how long it took for him to say goodbye, he leaves, and Gray Wing is left wondering if he'll ever see his nephew - the cat he could call his own son, for he raised him from birth - again. After settling in with his leadership duties, Turtle Tail joins him, with her three kits. As they curl up into sleep together, Gray Wing wonders if he and Turtle Tail were truly meant to be.
11. Patrol Guards - April 15th, 2016
Thunder takes the morning patrol with his father, Clear Sky, and one of his cats, Leaf. Leaf is rather hostile to Thunder, and when Thunder misses a piece of prey, Clear Sky grumbles on how he should've brought him to the forest earlier. He orders Leaf to take care of the patrol, as he has other duties to do. Leaf turns to Thunder and scolds him, before saying that he should pay attention before he becomes leader. Thunder is puzzled, wondering if Clear Sky only brought him so he could be the heir. When they bring a squirrel and a mouse to camp, all of Clear Sky's attention is to Thunder, praising him for his catch. Thunder explains that the squirrel is Leaf's, yet he ignores him. Leaf is offended at all the attention Thunder is getting, and as Thunder listens to his father telling him how he's going to train him in the ways of the forest, Thunder can't help but miss the carefreeness of life on the moor. The next morning, Clear Sky takes him out to leap, telling him that fear is a feeling to avoid. However, Thunder isn't that skilled at climbing trees, where that is their next lesson. Clear Sky tries to explain that he brought him back because he wanted to do the best for him, yet Thunder isn't convinced. The two of them go back to their camp, and Thunder realizes that he'll show Clear Sky that he'll be fine in the forest. He runs into River Ripple and another she-cat, and Thunder gets into a brawl with a strange tom.
Clear Sky starts to chase after the tom, declaring that cats who hurt his son will be punished, and River Ripple tells him he can't keep telling cats what to do. Clear Sky is irritated by River Ripple's so called arrogance, and tells him to say it to his face, adding that he can do what he likes. Thunder starts to say something, yet Clear Sky glares at him viciously. River Ripple interrupts, saying he'd like to hear what Thunder has to say. Clear Sky informs River Ripple that Thunder doesn't have an opinion, and River Ripple himself is shocked. When he leaves, Clear Sky turns and congratulates his son on expanding the territory. Thunder tells Clear Sky he was fine back there, and he didn't have to shove the cat. Clear Sky comments on how they were in the forest, and asks how that's fine. Thunder says that they can go where they were like, as they were there before them. He then asks if he does have an opinion, and Clear Sky tells him that he does, he was just putting that cat in his place. He asks if Thunder gets it, and Thunder lies, saying that he does. He wonders if Clear Sky will spread the word of their encounter, and Thunder wishes that it had never happened.
12. Dreams - April 22nd, 2016
When Gray Wing is playing with Turtle Tail's kits, he starts to have a coughing attack. Turtle Tail's kits beg him to get better, saying that he's like a father to them. Cloud Spots treats Gray Wing, telling him he'll be fine. Cloud Spots suggests that Wind and Gorse should have names like the rest of the mountain cats. Gorse suggests that Wind's name should be Wind That Chases Rabbits Down Burrows, and Wind cuffs him, saying that he could be called Gorse Prickle Stuck In Paw. All the cats laugh, and Rainswept Flower suggests that Wind could call herself Wind Runner, due to her being extremely fast. Turtle Tail suggests Gorse Fur for Gorse, considering how the fur on the top of his head sticks out like gorse spines.
Gray Wing calls his cats, asking them if they would be with him if he were to lead. The crowd lets out yowls of approval, and Gray Wing tells Lightning Tail that this was true strength, due to Lightning Tail suggesting before that strong cats could stand up to Clear Sky. Lightning Tail dips his head, all hostility towards Gray Wing gone, as he tells him that where he leads, they will all follow. When Gray Wing wakes up the next day, he realizes that he truly loves Turtle Tail, scolding himself for turning her away earlier. When Gray Wing goes out to teach Turtle Tail's kits how to hunt, Gray Wing starts to have another coughing bout, where Pebble Heart treats him quickly and efficently. Gray Wing is impressed with his knowledge of herbs, and asks him if he ever has dreams. Pebble Heart lies to him, saying he's never had them. When the kits scamper away with Jagged Peak after reaching camp, Turtle Tail scolds him for his illness and not receiving help. Gray Wing explains that he can't look weak in front of all the cats he has to lead, and Turtle Tail asks him about next time.
Gray Wing tells her all he needed was air, and there won't be a next time. They get chased by dogs all of a sudden, but being two intelligent cats, they successfully run them off. Gray Wing thanks Turtle Tail for agreeing not to tell his secret, and Turtle Tail gruffly replies that she never agreed to say anything. Gray Wing warns the moor cats of the possible danger, saying that for the rest of the day they should all keep together and stay close to the hollow before the dogs come home. When Pebble Heart has a vivid dream that keeps him moving, he explains one of the dreams he's had very often to Gray Wing after he guesses that he'd had it, and several like them before. He says that he was walking down a long, dark tunnel, and there was a glittering light at the end, as if a star was shining underground. Gray Wing asked if it scared him, yet Pebble Heart denies it, saying that he was excited by it, wanting to get to the end of the tunnel. He says that he could hear other cats, feeling as if they were trying to tell him something. But he never gets to figure it out, for he wakes up before he can reach the end of the tunnel. He tells Gray Wing what happens in this dream, explaining that he saw a very big fight where cats were screeching and clawing one another, adding that he thinks he saw Clear Sky in that dream. He confirms that he's dreamed it before, and Gray Wing wonders if it is some kind of warning. He assures Pebble Heart to not tell any cat, for he must be kept safe if he's this important. When he is cut off by a cry of grief, he realizes that Moon Shadow, sick from his wounds, had died when the other cats were asleep. They bury Moon Shadow, and Gray Wing makes sure that no cat will ever forget him.
13. Owl Eyes - April 29th, 2016
Owl Eyes goes missing, and several cats go to him track him down, including Gray Wing and Tall Shadow, who is determined to not see a cat buried again. Gray Wing tries to rescue Owl Eyes, and finds that the only solution is to hide under a tunnel. But rain starts to pour heavily down, and Gray Wing's chest is too tight for him to escape with the other cats. As they try to escape, they run into a badger's nest, and they get attacked. Owl Eyes is scratched, but they manage to escape with no terrible wounds. Turtle Tail is outraged at Gray Wing when she finds out what he had done, and Gray Wing tries to defend himself, but his chest is tightening again, leaving him not to breathe. Turtle Tail realizes that he's seriously ill, and declares that he needs time to recover and that he could not lead the group of cats. When Thunder is out patrolling the borders, he sees Bumble. Bumble updates Thunder on the news about how she isn't a kittypet anymore, and is a wild cat now. Petal and Frost are with him, and they tell Bumble she is trespassing. Bumble defiantly tells them that she can go where she wants, and Frost and Petal chase her out. Thunder tries to explain that Petal and Frost could've been kinder, but Petal tells him that she's been lonely ever since she was a kit, and she owes Clear Sky for bringing her in. They go back to camp, for Clear Sky has scheduled a meeting. When Frost and Petal talk about what he may do, they suggest that he could give certain cats responsibilities, yet scorn on the possible cats. Thunder is shocked by the way they go about their denmates. Frost explains that in the forest, every cat's place depends on how much Clear Sky likes them, for his word is the law.
14. Misty - May 6th, 2016
Thunder is confused, and Petal tells Frost that Thunder doesn't need explaining, ruefully saying that he goes to the top due to his relationship with Clear Sky. They encounter Wind Runner, who is apparently hunting in their territory. Frost and Petal attack her, yet Thunder doesn't, aware of his relationship with the moor cat. When they finish, they instantly scold Thunder, questioning why he's on patrol if he doesn't even defend the borders. When they return to camp, they realize that Clear Sky's announcement is about adjusting the territory lines, saying that if he let his cats go hungry, he'd never forgive himself. He explains that he wants to expand them, and calls Thunder on one of the patrols to expand them. Thunder is torn - between loyalty to his father and what he knows his right. He marks the new border, and they approach a rogue cat, who turned down Petal in her time of need, explaining her hatred towards her. When the two she-cats fight, Petal ends up killing Misty, despite Thunder's attempts to have Petal let her go.
Clear Sky is unsympathetic, calling Misty a stupid furball. Clear Sky turns to Thunder, telling him he sees so much of him in his son. Thunder finds Misty's kits, realizing that's why she fought so fiercely - to defend them. Clear Sky suggests killing them so they don't suffer, but Thunder rejects it. Petal suggests that she can look after them, but Clear Sky reminds her that Misty was the cat that refused her help. Petal assures Clear Sky that Misty is dead, and the kits haven't done anything to her. Thunder is surprised at Petal's sudden turn of character - she is much more sympathetic and caring, and Thunder instantly offers to help her take care of them. But before they go back to camp, Thunder takes a look at Misty's body, realizing she didn't have to die. He knows that Clear Sky didn't need all this territory, and if they didn't come there, none of it would happen. He wonders if Clear Sky truly would have killed the kits if Petal hadn't offered to take care of them, and horror fills Thunder as he realizes he cannot answer that question.
15. Death of Bumble - May 13th, 2016
Pebble Heart reports of another dream - that something awful has happened at the edge of the forest. Wind Runner comes to the camp before Gray Wing can call cats to investigate, and Turtle Tail gives her a hard stare as she calls for a meeting. Gray Wing inwardly begs for Turtle Tail not to cause a scene, for although Wind Runner is pushy, it seems as if she has something important to say. When Tall Shadow refuses to acknowledge her position as a leader, Gray Wing realizes that he has to, declaring to himself that he won't let a rogue cat push herself to the top when Gray Wing has worked hard to achieve it. Wind Runner tells the cats about how she ran into Clear Sky's patrol, talking about how they viciously attacked her and how Thunder was apart of it. Gray Wing comes to a chilling conclusion that Thunder is one of them, and remembers the fight between him and Fox - which had torn Gray Wing and Clear Sky's relationship apart. Turtle Tail asks if Wind Runner is sure, and Wind Runner tells her that she can see where she had buried Misty, the cat who had died with Clear Sky and Thunder's scent markers on her. She mentions the fact that there were kits, but they couldn't find them. Jackdaw's Cry calls out, saying they need a leader. At that moment, Gray Wing knows he has to take control, and organizes the patrols. When they set off towards the edge of the forest, they realize that a cat is crying in pain - and they find Bumble, dying, with the reek of fox all over her. As she dies, with her wounds so fatal even Cloud Spots can't do anything, the cats realize that there is a stench of Clear Sky there, as well. Bumble tries to utter out her last words as Turtle Tail yells at Gray Wing for defending his brother, and Clear Sky leaps from the bushes, insisting that he only tried to warn her. Gray Wing demands if he killed Bumble, and Wind Runner joins in, asking if he killed Misty's kits.
Clear Sky shows some horror to the sights surrounding him, yet he greets Gray Wing cooly, his eyes almost accusing him of betrayal. When he is accused of killing Bumble, Clear Sky asks if they think he's capable of it. Gray Wing doesn't think he is, but he and Turtle Tail are two different sides of the same fresh-kill, for she believes Clear Sky could, saying that he is powermad, doesn't care about who he hurts as long as he get whats he want, and declares that she is an apology for a cat. Wind Runner glares scornfully at Gray Wing, asking him what they do now. Gray Wing tells Clear Sky to leave, and he asks him if he believes he's innocent. Gray Wing asks that if he didn't harm Bumble, then who did? Clear Sky explains that he gave her a warning, just a little cuff around her ear. She faints, weak from hunger, and he says that he left, but hearing a fox bark in the distance. He says he was going to get help, but Turtle Tail accuses him of lying. Clear Sky declares he won't be spoken to like that, and he looks at Gray Wing, as if expecting him to stand up for him. When Gray Wing doesn't respond, Clear Sky deems that he knows where he stands, and parts.
16. Outrage - May 20th, 2016
They return to the moor cats, explaining what happened. With hisses of outrage and supporting meows, they come to a conclusion that Tall Shadow and Gray Wing should join forces and be joint leaders. Tall Shadow decides to formally welcome Wind Runner and Gorse Fur in their group. When Gray Wing talks to Turtle Tail, he believes that some cat has to get to the bottom of all the issues - the hunting, the expansion of territory, but most importantly, Clear Sky's head. Turtle Tail asks if the cat has to be him, and Gray Wing meekly replies that it couldn't be anyone else.
