As the Vice President of the United States and former director of the CIA, William Walden sees rescued POW Nicholas Brody as a political goldmine. Brody accepted Walden's offer to run for the U.S. House of Representatives, and now Walden is considering him for an even greater role in the upcoming election. Their wives have become friends, but Congressman Brody doesn't harbor such close feelings for the VP, since Walden played a key part in the drone strikes that killed Abu Nazir's son (and Brody's beloved young charge).
