The Lion Guard are helping Bupu, whose antler's are stuck in a tree branch. They also discover the tree branch he's stuck in is Nyuni's home. Zazu comes along and helps the Guard come up with a compromise: Bapu keeps the branch on his head after he gets out so Nyuni so he can continue living on it. After Zazu leaves, Fuli notes that Zazu makes everyone's business his business. Kion tells her that that's because it's his job. He also tells Fuli about how Zazu rescued him and Bunga when they were younger from Makuu.
Meanwhile, Zazu gets ambushed by Janja, Cheezi, and Chungu. The three Hyenas, per Scar's orders, take him back to the Outlands and imprison him inside a rib cage. Janja then goes to Scar. Scar tells him to interrogate him for knowledge about Simba so Scar's Collective can take over the Pride Lands. He also warns Janja to hurry as the Lion Guard will come looking for him.
Sure enough, the Lion Guard learns from Simba that Zazu is missing and they go looking for them. Meanwhile, Janja interrogates Zazu but he doesn't tell him anything useful. The Lion Guard then shows up to rescue Zazu. At one point, Fuli finds herself cornered at the edge of a cliff over lava by Nne And Tano. Seeing this, Zazu knocks the two hyenas away, but falls towards the lava in the process. Kion then uses The Roar of the Elders to make a clear spot for Zazu to land, saving him. The hyenas then retreat, presumably to face Scar's wrath once again. The lion guard then take Zazu back to Pride Rock where he gives the Morning Report, even though it's night.
