In the chapter The Petrescu's, he appears briefly with Francis as they argue over Seana, and that Francis wants to kill her before she harms one of his family members. However, Orion warns him to not interfere with anything going on, since Claire (his wife) gave him a severe warning to not interfere with anything in Celesta and Lydia's lives. He then argues with Seana about the past and how she accused him of not caring that Riley and Emila Kane were murdered and he did nothing to avenge their deaths, only she did. He then has to incapacitate Francis before he killed Seana. Then, he gives Seana a final warning to leave Lydia and Celesta be, or he would kill her himself.
