He is first seen winning gold for Skate America, with Otabek and Guang Hong also on the podium. In China, he looks for Guang Hong to go eat hot pot with Phichit and the others, though he's mildly terrified at the sight of drunk Victor stripping in the end. At the competition day, he fanboys with Guang Hong and Phichit at Christophe and Victor. He goes fifth in the skating order for the short program at the Cup of China, skating to Still Alive. Leo's program is self-choreographed, and while none of the jumps are quads, he still manages to score high because of his PCS. He ends up in third place after the short program, after Yuuri and Christophe.
Prior to his performance, he is excited because he placed third in the short program and first in Skate America, and therefore is the closest to qualifying for the Grand Prix. However, he does not perform well in the free skate and ends up placing last. He is disappointed with the results and promises his coach that he will try harder for the U.S. Nationals.
Leo is briefly seen towards the end of the episode, calling Guang Hong to ask him if he was able to get through to the livestream of the Grand Prix Finals.
