Badger and Mole arrive at Rat's house, muddy and disheveled. Badger tells them about a secret tunnel that leads into Toad Hall, which they can use it as part of a sneak attack to drive out the invaders. Badger also tells them that the weasels are throwing a big banquet in Toad Hall the next night. Early the next morning, Mole goes to Toad Hall in disguise and spreads a rumor to the stoats that there will be a huge attack on Toad Hall that night. Toad thinks Mole has spoiled their plan, but Badger praises Mole for his clever actions.
