"Archer Vice: On The Carpet"[]

Slater first appears as an arms dealer who deals in cocaine in exchange for weapons. He shot Sterling Archer with a beanbag gun, not knowing who was in the airplane that was delivering his cocaine to him. He then acts as if he knows Archer, by saying, "Classic Rando!" Rando was the disguise name that Archer picked when he introduced himself to Slater. 

"Archer Vice: Filibuster"[]

Slater reappears with Agent Hawley in San Marcos, revealed to be a CIA agent and part of an elaborate scheme to deplete the CIA's annual budget by monetizing President Gustavo Calderon's cocaine supply in exchange for weapons to fight his civil war. He is shocked when he sees Rando (Archer), confused until Hawley tells him that Rando is actually Sterling Archer.

"Archer Vice: Arrival/Departure"[]

Although he attempts to escape, Slater is held at gunpoint by a panicked Lana, who is in the middle of labour. He is detained until the escape from San Marcos, assisting Ray Gillette in flying the plane back to the United States.
