On the podcast you said, they changed the name of the vice president from Marlin to Warner. You mean, they changed it on the show that aired? I don’t think so. In ep. 7×07 Elizabeth calls him Ralph and during his speech at the War Memorial the captioning addresses him as “Warner” while he’s speaking off screen. No “Marlin” during the whole season.

On the CBS press site he was identified as “Vice President Marlin,” which is why we thought he was Marlin, not Warner. 

So, perhaps not an inconsistency in the show, but at least one with their press material (which is just so weird if you think about it). 

If the moral of this story is for me to follow my own advice and not put any stock into Showtime/CBS PR, then that sounds about right.
