Balance of Power is the tenth episode of the second season of Meerkat Manor.


The Whiskers start the morning by preparing the burrow for the arrival of Flower and Mozart's unborn litters. After tidying up the den, the Whiskers head out to forage, leaving Yossarain to babysit Blossom, ApolloAthena, Pepper and Nutmeg. Blossom sneaks away while Youssarian isn't watching in search of adventure. At the foraging grounds Flower captures and devours a small bird. Alarmed by Flower's ferocity, Daisy moves away, only to run straight into her pregnant sister Mozart. Mozart attacks Daisy and drives her off, but Flower fails to act on Mozart's insubordination.

At the babysitting burrow, Youssarian realises that one of the pups has disappeared, He leaves to go search for Blossom. He eventually finds her and returns her to the burrow. Meanwhile, Mozart savagely attacks Daisy for a second time. Flower witnesses the attack but does nothing, so Mozart continues and evicts Daisy from the group. Daisy later tries to rejoin the family, but Mozart and some helpers attack her and chase her away again. Daisy ends up spending a night in a separate burrow with a yellow mongoose. The next morning she reappears at the edge of the Whiskers' territory. Flower ignores her and instead punishes Mozart for her insubordinate actions. Daisy is allowed to rejoin the family and Mozart resumes her position as a subordinate female.
