We first saw Brody when Dorian, Adriana and Layla convinced him to come to Llanview to continue posing as the father to Gigi's son, Shane. Although Shane was happy to finally meet his father, Gigi was shocked to see Brody alive - after being told he'd died in the war as a Navy Seal.
Though Brody still wanted to pretend to be Shane's dad, Gigi insisted on telling Shane the truth about Rex, which led Brody into a tailspin! Suffering from the effects of the war, Brody shot Rex, thinking he was back in the war, and ended up in St. Ann's, where he took an instant bonding to Jessica Brennan.
Since their time at St. Ann's, though Brody helped Gigi by claiming to have an affair with her, to hide Stacy's blackmail, Brody fell in love with and secretly dated Jessica. However, when Bess returned, and went on the run, Brody found Bess and was determined to help her face the truth that her baby had died - and Chloe was really Starr's child!
While helping Jessica through her ordeal, Brody was accepted into the Llanview Police Academy and ultimately became a cop after helping John with a case to bust the Llanview drug ring.
Brody's next case brought him face to face with Jessica's father, Mitch Laurence, which had him doubting whether or not it was right that John covered for Natalie, who stabbed Mitch after Jared's death. Brody was able to save Jessica before Mitch raped her and fought for months to help recover Jessica's lost memories.
During this time, and feeling as though Jessica would never remember the love they shared, Brody had a one night stand with Natalie, who thought John had rejected her. Jessica's memories returned and John and Natalie reunited, only to later find out that both Jessica and Natalie were pregnant. Both girls had DNA tests. While Jessica's baby proved to be Brody's, Natalie never let on that her DNA test proved he was the father of her baby as well.
It wasn't until Brody, Jessica, Natalie and John's double wedding when it was revealed Clint had Vimal change the paternity results. Ford was really the father of Jessica's baby. Brody was also shocked to hear Natalie's son was actually his. Jessica refused to forgive Brody and Natalie for their one night stand and turned into Tess. Brody was there for Natalie and Liam and tried to get through to Tess. Though Jessica returned briefly, Brody lost her again when Tess came back.
When it was revealed that Liam was Brody's son, he and Natalie made a go of their relationship. Brody found out that Marty had changed the paternity results but never let on that John was really Liam's father. It wasn't until Brody and Natalie's wedding day when Tina appeared with the paternity results, and Brody was forced to admit he'd known the truth all along. He slipped away, kidnapped Liam and headed for the airport - with John and Natalie on his trail.
John and Natalie located Brody at his sister's house in Michigan.

At Llanfair, Natalie finds Jessica looking at photos of Ford on her laptop. Jessica promises she's okay and reflects on all of the horrible things her father has done. Natalie reminds Jessica that her father, Clint, is in the other room. Nothing will ever change that. In the living room, Viki reminds Clint that no matter what the DNA proves, he will always be Jessica's father. After they share a kiss, Clint asks Viki to open the results. Viki does and gasps. Clint grabs the results, as Jessica and Natalie appear. Viki explains that Clint has something to tell Jessica, something that will also affect Natalie. He shares what Allison told them and how he had a DNA test done. He hands Jessica the results. "Daddy?" Jessica cries. Clint nods. She rushes into his arms, happy that Mitch isn't a part of their life. She hugs her twin and tells Natalie she's the best thing that's ever happened to her. After Natalie goes to call Rex, Jessica answers the door to Brody. He was released yesterday and wanted to give Jessica his condolences for Ford. Brody might be heading back into the Navy but vows to be there if Jessica ever needs anything. Back in the living room, Clint admits to Viki he's wasted too much time. He gets down on one knee and proposes.
Over the phone, John reassures Tea about the case then questions Brody at St. Ann's. Brody apologizes again. John wants Brody to get better but warns he's been implicated in the fire at The Sun. Brody swears on Liam's life that he didn't set the fire. He did lock Vimal in but had no idea the office was going to be set on fire and begs, "Please believe me." John urges Brody to take care of himself and promises to take care of Liam. John runs into Natalie in the hallway. He wants to spend time with her and Liam. John can spend time with Liam, but Natalie can't guarantee she'll be there. She joins Brody, who apologizes for lying. "It's over," she replies. It's not for Brody. He's still in love with her. Brody knew once Natalie found out the truth about Liam things would change. Now she and John can start over. "Maybe not," Natalie says. Brody hands Natalie a note for later then whispers, "Today has to be goodbye." He can't see her anymore and needs to start over. Brody thinks Natalie and John belong together.
