Stevens attempted to subdue Jack Bauer inside the McLennen-Forster building after seeing Jack beat down Marx and Skyer, two of his fellow guards, but was promptly knocked out himself. Jack stole Stevens' access card to enter the room with the Electromagnetic pulse bomb, but was unable to stop the device from activating. As Jack left the area, he observed the guards beginning to regain consciousness.
Shortly after 7pm, Stevens was with his boss Dave Conlon, who was trying to force Paul Raines to divulge information. Paul refused, so Conlon left him with Stevens and a second guard, James, to be beaten into submission. Stevens held Paul while James punched him and then slammed his hand in a filing cabinet drawer. They were stopped when Jack arrived and shot down a nearby guard and James. Panicked, Stevens held Paul at gunpoint and ordered Jack to stand down. Paul lowered his head suddenly, and Jack took the shot, killing Stevens.
