Help! Cat intro and averse reactions!

Ok We began using baby gates today so the my two resident 7 mos could meet my 8yr old "new comer" (I had this cat before I got the other 2 but hadn't brought her to my apt yet). Immediately as the door was opened all three cats went to the holes of the gate and started sniffing each other. They all seemed very curious. Out of absolutely NO where, the youngest kitten freaked! she hissed and took off like a crazy kitty. This put my 8 yr old on guard and caused her to back away from the gate and start posturing, hissing, and growling (something i had expected to occur anyways). Now the youngest is hissing at her other kitten companion and won't let her near her. This is really scary bc these cats are inseparable! The sleep together everyday and refuse to be in separate rooms. The elder kitten keeps stalking her and trying to test her boundaries. She seems kinda upset that the little kitten is yelling at her. But she is still trying to get near her i think to comfort her. I wasnt expecting this intro to be without stress but this is horrible! Im worried I may have ruined their deep sisterly bond. Any advice???

Ok well the youngest doesnt seem as upset anymore. She's starting to calm down and let the elder kitten by her. It seems she just needed a little space...?

You posted this in your other thread on introductions, having it in two places will be confusing so I'm locking this one.
