After her passing, he takes on her responsibilities to keep the pack united. When given the opportunity to help the Evil Queen hunt down Snow White, Adair agrees on two conditions—the pack gains freedom from human violence and they control the silver mines. On the journey to the mines, Red Riding Hood causes a disturbance with the Queen. Adair attempts to kill her out of revenge for Anita's death, but she escapes unscathed. The Huntsman flees as well, but Adair and the pack do not chase after him due to wanting to remain focused on obtaining the mines. That night, they seize the mines and terrorize villagers during their search for Snow White, who is found at Lake Onondaga in the company of the Huntsman and Red Riding Hood. On the Queen's command, Adair goes after her only to be slashed aside. As he skids across the ice, it cracks and causes both Snow White and Red Riding Hood to fall in the lake. The Huntsman follows them in, and though Adair believes the trio are dead, the Queen senses they are still alive. The next morning, Adair requests the Queen's help to heal a pack member, Adalyn, who has been poisoned by a silver arrow. She refuses, and when Adair questions her judgement, she harshly rebukes him. The Huntsman, Red Riding Hood and Snow White catch Adair by surprise; attempting to explain that aligning with the Queen will not give the pack freedom. Instead of listening, he alerts the wolves. Menacing the Queen, the Huntsman threatens Adair's life, but she incinerates the man herself. Angered at the Queen's actions, the pack turn against her; believing she denied Adair an honorable death.
