Indoor cats escaped, now one hates the other

I have two indoor cats, Yahoo and Jinn. Yahoo is about 9 years old while the other is 9 months. They get together great and only WWF play fight. That is until recently.
They got outside when no one was looking and spent about an hour poking around. Yahoo has done it a few times, but it was Jinn's first. She was caught, cowering in the corner by the door and Yahoo was a better fight, but he lost in the end.
Now (48 hours later), Jinn hisses and wants to physically fight with Yahoo. He eventally will talk back to her, but that's as far as it goes. It's almost like she thinks hes a dog now, although she has never encountered one. I got home a few minutes ago, she was back at her hissing at the other cat. I dont see any improvement as of yet. So that's why I'm posting on here to see if anyone as encountered such a weird thing before.
Thanks for any info.

There's nothing that will make things better. Send Jinn to me.

I would put a drop of vanilla flavoring on one cat and rub them with a towel, then rub the other one with the same towel. That way, they'll smell the same. You could also try giving them treats together so they can associate being near each other with something good.

Give it time. I have two sisters, indoor cats, almost 2 years old. 2 months ago one sister (Mishi) escaped and was outside for 26 days. She finally came back home and was trapped in a Havaheart trap. Her sister, Mila, was not amused by her presence even though they had been inseparable before. She smelled different and looked different (she had lost a lot of weight). Mila hissed at her sister for a week and wouldn't accept her for several weeks after Mishi came back. It broke my heart. But now that Mishi has been back for almost 3 months, they're getting back to normal. What I would suggest is giving the cat who got out a bath if possible, or at least use some deorderizing kitty wipes on her. The other cat doesn't recognize her yet. Just give them time and be patient. Don't force anything. Try to play with them both together and feed them at the same time. they should be okay eventually. It may take weeks or even months for them to get back to normal. Don't give up hope.
