The President of the United States meets with Nathan Petrelli.
A newspaper reports that the President has drawn fire for recent welfare comments.
The President and Nathan continuously meet in the White House as of Nathan's second month as Senator. While interpreted by the press as dealing with Homeland Security, the meetings are updates on the government's plot to kidnap and detain dangerous evolved humans.
Angela recalls that Nathan pushed her aside and went to the President because he thought his team alone could handle the capturing of evolved humans.
Danko refuses to obey Nathan's orders and free Matt and Daphne in exchange for Flight 195's security footage, saying that the President has told him that the US government will not make deals with terrorists.
The President tries to evade a possible danger on his life. Peter poses as the President and tranquilizes Sylar. Sylar is unaware of this trick up until the last second when Peter shape shifts back after tranquilizing him.
- In a blog post, Greg Beeman noted that the Dual scene in which the President makes his debut was filmed in October 2008, one month before Election Day in the United States. Beeman said that Tim Kring "really wanted to cast an African American in the role of the President, even though, at that time it was quite uncertain how the election would turn out."
