Recently, Frankie revealed to Jesse that he made an error in judgment during his tour of duty in Iraq, and that error allowed a 15 year old Iraqi to kill three of Frankie's fellow soldiers in a suicide attack.
Just weeks after his return to Pine Valley, Frankie meets Randi Morgan.
Calling himself simply "Frank", he returns to Pine Valley to fulfill his internship at Pine Valley Hospital.
Mia had the child in secret and vowed never to let him find out, with the help of Trey Kenyon.
Since losing Mia, Frankie managed to turn his life around.
Jesse and Angie reconcile and once Jesse finds out he has a son, they kidnap the child and flee.
The saga has a happy ending once a judge restores custody back to them.It also leads to the re-emergence of Jesse, who—despite evidence to the contrary—is very much alive (He was abducted and his captors faked his death).
