In "The I of the Storm", Pruitt is seen insulting Boyd for being a murderer but he is shooed away by Kyle.
In "Cottonmouth", Kyle lays out the heist plan to Boyd: Boyd will take packets down to the splinter shaft, Kyle, Marcus, and Pruitt will transfer the cash to the truck, and Boyd will kill Shelby Parlow, the security agent and they will frame him for the robbery, being viewed as heroes for stopping the heist. Boyd calls Ava's house from his cell phone, and pretends to talk to Ava, and overhears Kyle and Marcus saying that Boyd is to die as well in the mine explosion, along with Shelby. Boyd, Kyle and cronies are readying for their big heist. Boyd pulls the gang aside and demands their cell phones, explaining that he is about to set an explosive charge and can't risk someone's phone interfering with the signal. They rob the money and Kyle sets off the detonator once Shelby and Boyd are in the mine, but the truck explodes instead. Unbeknowst to Kyle, Boyd was well aware of the plan to kill him and set the explosives in the truck outside. Kyle and Pruitt are immediately killed in the explosion.
