Davina asks Leon if he would escort her and Danielle into the city and he agrees to it. They come across Elijah while walking in the city. Elijah thanks Leon for his hard work. Later, when arriving at the record shop, Danielle questions Leon on how much longer is he going to keep following them around and he tells her until she is done for the day. She says she doesn't need a babysitter and Leon tells her that he isn't her babysitter, he's her bodyguard. Davina tells Danielle to cut Leon a break and thanks him then the girls go into the record store while Leon waits outside. Eventually, Oliver and a few other werewolves walk into the record store. After a few minutes, Leon saves Danielle from Oliver attacking her and tells him to leave before he kills him. Davina questions Leon on why he just standing out there when he knew there was trouble. Leon wanted to give Danielle a break as he already knows how powerful she is but it will be the first and last time that he stands by and tells Danielle to let him do his job of protecting her.
During the night, Danielle and Davina's dinner is interrupted when they are attacked by werewolves. They are eventually outnumbered until Leon saves them. Mikael eventually shows up, surprising Danielle and he attacks the three of them. Leon, trying to protect the girls, is killed by Mikael, devastating Danielle and Davina. Eventually, Elijah and Marcel show up in time and Mikael makes his escape. Danielle learns from Elijah that Leon will come back to life as he has Elijah's vampire blood in his system. Later, Leon wakes up and Danielle is angry with him for making that kind of decision. Leon states that is was his choice to make as he would do anything to keep her safe, even putting his own life on the line for her. They continue to argue with each other, until he learns from her that she blames herself for his death. He tells her to get used to having a bodyguard because he's not going anywhere and he won't die. She pulls him into an dark alleyway and gets him to feed off of her.
Leon is seen in a flashback from Danielle, Davina, and his travels in The Voodoo. While in a club in Paris, they meet Sophia's vampire (type unknown) older brother, Damien. Even though Leon was on vervain, Damien was unable to break through it and compel Leon to go over to the bar while Damien will stay to talk to Danielle.
Leon begins to embrace his vampirism with Danielle's help in Mother and Son. Leon is first seen taking a morning run and stops when he sees Danielle nearby. He approaches her and she asks him not to guard her for the night as she is going to a family dinner that Esther is holding. As Leon begins to refuse, Danielle gives him an offer to help him with his vampirism if he agrees to her plea. He agrees and they head to the tallest building in the city and is informed that he is going to jump off of the building. She wants him to embrace his life as a vampire and to see all the new possibilities that come with it. See the world that he wasn't able to see as a human and combine with the new life that he has now. However, he only jumps off the building when carrying Danielle in his arms and she demands he put her down. After landing on the ground and their bickering at each other, she calms down and he puts her down but only to receive a slap from her. He wants her to loosen up as she does not need to keep her guard up twenty-four seven since that is his job as her bodyguard. He then questions her if she thinks that he can't protect her and she tells her guard stays up regardless and leaves.
When the family dinner begins, Leon shows up having received an invitation from Finn Mikaelson. During the family dinner, things start to get chaotic and out of control. Danielle finds out she has an older twin sister which her mother kept secret from her a thousand years. Esther shows up and the family feud continues.
