Simba and Kion are talking to Mufasa about the fact that Scar has returned. Kion admits it's his fault as what brought Scar back was his use of the Roar of the Elders. Mufasa tells his grandson that the Roar can do both good and evil. Simba asks his father how they can stop Scar. Mufasa tells his son that an Evil Lion of the Past is something he has no experience with. However, he also tells Simba that he defeated Scar before and can do it again. They just need to trust in the wisdom of the Pride Lands and themselves. Simba decides his father means that they should get advice from Kongwe, the wisest animal in the Pride Lands. He sends Fuli and Makini to bring Kongwe to him.
Fuli and Makini arrive in the area Kongwe lives and discover that she is a tortoise, to Fuli's dismay. Meanwhile, The rest of the Lion Guard saves a herd of Hyraxes from a collapsing bridge. Beshte then makes a bridge so that they can cross safely. Meanwhile, Fuli, Makini, and Kongwe are heading back to Pride Rock at Kongwe's pace. When a tree falls, they head toward the Back Lands. Meanwhile, the rest of the Lion Guard saves a herd of Elands from a fire.
Meanwhile, Fuli, Kongwe, and Makini have arrived in the Back Lands. Makuca appears and attacks the group. With Kongwe's advice, Fuli defeats Makucha and drives him off. Fuli, Makini, and Kongwe arrive at Pride rock where Kongwe learns of Scar's return. Kongwe tells them that the patient animal tastes the ripest fruit. Fuli tells him she means that they will find a way to defeat Scar if they take the time to find it.
