Nick immediately throws down his bottle, then rummages behind the back seat to find a revolver and a knife. Kevin, who thought this was over, asks what he's doing. "Going after them," Nick says. He figures, "We get rid of him, we're right back in business with her." Quietly, Kevin tells his violent, moronic partner that they got more than they came for, and they shouldn't push their luck. "We're done, okay? Got me?" And then, like an idiot, he turns his back on Nick. So Nick grabs him and stabs him in the chest, then throws him face-down on the floor. Wow, between Dana and Nick, Kevin sure has stellar taste in friends, doesn't he?
Outside, on their way back to the van, Dana is too busy thanking Cole for what he did (not even counting the part where he's now an accessory after the fact to Kevin and Nick's robbery and assault) to notice the sound of the van door sliding open behind them. I don't know what Cole's excuse is for not hearing it, unless it's the same voluntary deafness that's helping him shut Dana out right now. Nick is behind them, getting closer. Kevin, still alive somehow, manages to struggle to the open van door and scream out, "Jenny!" Nick barely glances back before opening fire on Cole. Cole pushes Dana down behind the CTUmobile, then pops up from behind it and downs Nick with one blast from Nick's own shotgun. Lucky for him Nick had it loaded. Cole goes to check the body while Dana runs past them to where Kevin is dying in the van's doorway. She lets him fall out into her lap as he gasps out his last words: "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have come back." YOU THINK!? Cole stands over them both as Kevin expires, and good riddance. It's 1:00:00.
