Jack Bauer learned that Chevensky would be somehow involved with the terrorists through a note that David Palmer left on his computer. This note, "Chevensky - 16 Transport Way", listed Chevensky's name and office number on a page of his memoirs.
Chevensky possessed a key card which was to open a sealed transport crate containing 20 canisters of Sentox nerve gas. It was planned that Chevensky would take his counterparts to the canisters while the hostage situation erupted. That plan, however, was spoiled when Jack showed up. When confronted by Jack, Chevensky swallowed a suicide capsule and died while Jack's attention was drawn away. One of Beresch's men, Achmed, later found his body, and retrieved the key card from the location where he had said it would be hidden.
Despite Jack's interruption, the key card was still passed on to a sleeper terrorist among the hostages, Ivan Erwich, and the nerve gas canisters were successfully removed from the airport by Erwich and his men.
Background information and notes
- Exactly what line of inquiry Palmer started that led to him noting Chevensky is unknown. Considering how Palmer's concern was the Sentox nerve gas conspiracy, it is likely that Chevensky, like Beresch himself, was communicating with an operative of the conspiracy.
- If Jack tortured Chevensky, he could've very well ended up torturing the wrong man; it was the Sentox nerve gas conspiracy, not the Dawn Brigade, that was responsible for Palmer's death (they killed Palmer to ensure that he couldn't expose the conspiracy's plan to manipulate the brigade). Therefore, it is entirely feasible that Chevensky was not privy to information on Palmer's death.
