Luther returned to the nest after the others made an acquisition of a traveling couple. Once he eyed them over and found the woman to be "interesting", he gave the order that she was to live and the man was to be locked up with other gathered prey. After a second thought, he decided the group could "treat themselves" to the man and laughed as his nest-mates devoured the man as the woman watched on helplessly, then started making out with Kate.
Later, as the rest of the nest were sleeping, he and Kate graduated from making out in front of the female hostage to stripping in front of the female hostage. When stripping began to include groping, he noticed the woman's terrified, fleeting glances and then watched as he had Kate feed the woman her blood, turning her into a vampire. In the day as the vampires slept, the Winchesters snuck into the nest to both free the hostages and to retrieve the Colt with as little collateral damage as possible. When the newly turned vampire (mistaken as still being human) alerted the nest to their intruders, Luther awoke and managed to prevent John from getting the Colt. The hunters fled, with the vampires reluctant to pursue due to it still being daylight.
That night, he sent Kate and another vampire after the Winchesters, only for Kate to be captured and the other vampire killed. When John lured him away from the nest by using Kate as bait (so Dean and Sam could go in for the hostages again), Luther agreed to exchange the Colt for his mate. When Kate broke free of her bonds prematurely, she and Luther got the upper hand on John by knocking him unconscious. As they were about to kill him, Dean and Sam arrived and a small scuffle ensued, resulting in a stalemate of Luther threatening to snap Sam's neck if Dean didn't disarm himself of his machete. As he begins to talk about what monster hunters were, a re-awakened John surprised the vampire and shot him the head with the Colt, killing him.
Luther was the leader of his group of vampires. Because head vampires are usually the eldest of the group, this may also apply to him, and he may or may not have turned all the members of his group into vampires as well, similar to way that Dixon and Boris built their nests. Like many nest leaders, Luther believed in enjoying eternal life, but also in keeping a low profile to avoid attracting hunters, as evidenced by the fact that he hadn't taken his own revenge against Daniel Elkins for what was done to his family and the way he became upset with Kate for doing so.
