In "Fugitive Number One", Birch is seen calling all of the convicts (minus Earl and Carl) out of the cell when Markham and Boon arrive to meet with Carl.

In "Collateral", Birch and Crosley are seen arresting Ava on the bridge in order to deliver her to Markham, along with the stolen $10 million. When Ava learns of their intentions to deliver her to Markham, she kicks Birch in the leg but is subdued by Crosley who hits her in the leg with a nightstick. 

In "The Promise", Birch and Crosley bring Ava to Markham and plan to go look for Zachariah Randolph but Markham shoots them down and sends Boon who he can trust better. Birch is later taken hostage by Boyd who finds Ava at the Bennett drying shed and the two men exchange barbs and Markham remarks that Boyd made a poor choice for a hostage and promptly shoots and kills Birch, initiating a shootout between Boyd and Markham.
