— To Kurt Weller
In One Begets Technique, unable to stand life in Ryker's, Rich approaches the FBI, promising to help them bring in a notorious criminal banker for many terrorist organizations. However, it was in fact a ruse to steal 12 priceless black market paintings from the professor who stole them and had his boyfriend Boston Arliss Crab duplicate them so he could escape custody.
In Resolves Eleven Myths, Rich hacks the New York Office's computer, demanding that Kurt, now Assistant Director, launch a drone strike at a provided set of coordinates in exchange for him not wiping out the FBI's database. Kurt figured out that Rich had broke into his apartment, which had a secure line to the NYO, due to his comment about his own beer. Rich seemed awfully relaxed about his arrest and revealed that he really wanted the FBI's protection from an assassin called the Acadian, claiming that the assassin was sent by Kim Jong-Un, and had murdered Boston.
When the Acadian captured and poisoned Zapata and demanded that Rich be left alone for him to kill, Kurt came up with a plan for Reade and Nas to find her while Rich created a camera loop to make it seem to the Acadian that he was alone so Kurt and Jane could ambush him.
After the Acadian was killed and Zapata was cured, it was revealed while being transported to prison, Boston is revealed to be alive and driving the truck and Rich's two guards provide him the key to his cuffs. However, they are pulled over the FBI, as Patterson had figured out that Rich lied about Boston's death because he described his fake death to resemble Dobby's death in Harry Potter. Rich and his cohorts then taken into custody.
He's expected to return on episode 2.14
