"Other Women" Edit

Leah attends Serena Joy's baby shower alongside Naomi and several other Wives.

"Seeds" Edit

Leah attends the Prayvaganza in which numerous Guardian, including Nick, are issued with Econowives. She is seated with Serena Joy, Naomi, and various other Wives.

"The Last Ceremony" Edit

Leah attends to Serena Joy while she acts out the expected birth of her Handmaid June's child; ultimately, however, the birth does not occur, since June is experiencing false labour.


Leah's presence at Commander Waterford's welcoming meeting for the Mexican ambassador implies that she is the Wife of Commander Chambers, since four Commanders (Chambers, Deeds, Waterford, and Putnam) and four Wives (Serena Joy, Naomi, Leah, and one unnamed Wife) are seen during the meeting.[2]
