Templeton supports Mac by remaining at the White House but it becomes evident that he and Mac think differently on certain stands on leadership, determining how having Templeton in power might lead to a very different conclusion to the situation. After an intensive round of negotiation with the North Korean regime, Mac was able to secure China’s help in order to use deep-sea rescue facilities to save the trapped sailors. After all of the sailors were rescued, Mac greeted them via a video link, the scene was subsequently broadcast to the nation. After this incident, Mac won over the support and respect of the Military, also the trust of the North Korean regime to a certain degree.
