On December 25, 2011, while traveling in a limo after a fundraiser at Camp David, Connor's parents were involved in a car accident. Though Ben attempted to save Margaret, he was pulled from the car by Agent Mike Banning.
Connor witnessed the limousine plummeting to the frozen river below, killing Margaret on impact.
18 months later on July 5, 2013, Connor starts to not think about Camp David and prefers the beach for the next holidays. When the Koreans for United Freedom took over the White House, Connor hid behind the Lincoln Bedroom secret passageway, thanks to being trained by Banning and stayed there until Banning was able to find him and informed Speaker of the House Allan Trumbull, using his codename. Banning is able to get Connor to safety by getting him to a nearby air vent, which he climbs to be picked up by some Marines and it was a success. Connor is later seen next to Banning, who has been reinstated as a Secret Service agent, where his father gives out the speech in the aftermath.
Although Connor was never seen in the movie, he was mentioned by his father during the events of the movie. President Asher receives a video call from Connor and tells his agents that Connor went on his first date the night before. However, they are interrupted by news of British Prime Minister James Wilson's death and President Asher never gets to take the call.
The President later receives a joke Connor sent him and tells Mike Banning that its a daily ritual between the two of them and means the world to him. He later asks Banning to kill him if it comes down to it so he won't be executed live on TV where Connor and the whole world can see it.
Connor is a bit of an energetic boy, due to Banning training him so he could be a Secret Service agent. Connor was first seen, wearing a hat and glasses while at Camp David, but 18 months later, Connor doesn't wear glasses anymore.
