Jesse Hubbard and Angie Baxters’s relationship was finally on track.
But, the loving couple had issues with intimacy. Angie had long decided
to keep herself until marriage. But Jesse could not wait. He proposed
to Angie, who in the rush of the marriage accepted. They quickly eloped,
and shared their first night of passion together.
Things became estranged between husband and wife. Angie asked Jesse for
a quickie divorce. Soon, he would learn Angie had left him because she
was pregnant. He wanted to raise their son together, but Angie’s
father, Les Baxter, had already arranged for the child to be adopted.
Angie and Jesse teamed up to find their son. They kidnapped the boy from
his adoptive family and waited in Sea City for things to blow over. Jesse
named his son Frank Hubbard, after his late uncle. Angie and Jessie remarried
in front of the Justice of the Peace. But marital bliss was not to be,
as the couple was wanted on kidnapping charges.
1988: Jesse was shot dead while pursuing a robber, John
Remington, while working for the Pine Valley Police Department.
1991: Angie decided to leave Pine Valley for California.
Frankie and Angie moved back to Pennsylvania, this time to nearby Corinth.
Angie was not ready to return to Pine Valley because of all the reminders
of Jesse. Not having a father affected Frankie. He began spending time
with the wrong crowd in Corinth.
A drunk Cooper Alden accidentally hit Frankie with his car. Though only
sustaining minor injuries, Frankie began blackmailing the Cooper for his
fortune. Frankie had Cooper pay off a man who had accused Frankie of assaulting
Frankie found an outlet for his rebellion in film. His propensity to film
everything compromised an ongoing FBI investigation. Charles Harrison
was in Corinth to protect Clay Alden. Frank had filmed a private conversation
that compromised Clay's safety. The situation brought Angie and Charles
together. After a brief romance, Angie and Charles married.
Frankie began seeing Bree Hawkins, not knowing she was Charles' daughter
with Lorraine Hawkins. Angie and Charles' marriage hit the rocks when
Jacob Foster arrived in Corinth. Jacob was a dead ringer for Jesse. Jacob
made Angie realize her heart was still broken. She made plans to move
to New York with Jesse. Frankie was admitted to Film School in New York
City, and made the move with his mother.
Frankie quickly realized New York City was very different from the small
towns he grew up in. Frankie and Angie were targeted by a white supremacist
group after she took in a white foster daughter, Kayla. Frankie had his
own reservations towards Kayla's adoption, believing there were as many
if not more African American foster children in need of a good home. Frankie
had begun to embrace the "Back to Africa" movement. Explosives
went off in Angie's Front Street Clinic. Before the Hubbards could react,
Frankie fell victim to another intentional bombing at the City Bar.
It would be Jacob who helped the Hubbards get through the trying time.
After a long period of recovery, Frankie decided to move back to California
to pursue a career in film. He and Jacob drove to California together.
He gave Jacob and Angie his blessing. Later that year, he returned to
New York City to surprise his mother at her wedding to Jacob. Frankie
was again dating Bree in California.
Jacob and Angie adopted a baby girl, Cassandra Foster.
Frank spent most of his adolescence in New York where Angie operated her
own clinic. After a failed attempt at becoming a director, Frank left
film school for medical school. Joe Martin offered Frank an internship
at Pine Valley Hospital, just like his mother. After all these years,
Frank was ready to come home.
Frank met Simone Torres after she was admitted to the hospital after a
night of binge drinking. Frank reached out to Simone. He helped arrange
for her to move into the Fargate Boarding House with him. They began to
see each other romantically.
Frank saw Simone’s insecurities stemmed from her father, Dr. Zeke
McMillian’s, harsh treatment. Simone confided that Anthony had resented
Simone since her brother, Anthony McMillian, overdosed. Frank knew that
name was familiar. Frank realized Anthony was a subject in one of his
documentaries of life on the New York streets. Frank filmed Anthony’s
last moments instead of calling for help. Seeing Anthony died was what
made him want to become a doctor. When he admitted the truth to Simone,
she broke things off.
ran into his first love Mia Saunders who was also working at the hospital.
Mia was very cold towards Frank. Mia eventually revealed that they had
shared a child, William, which she had put up for adoption. Frank was
infuriated and insisted in tracking him down. Mia begged Frank to leave
William alone with his adoptive family. With Liza Colby’s help,
Frank realized how much damage he could cause by dropping this bombshell
Frank decided to leave Pine Valley to complete his internship elsewhere.
Frank spent the last few years on the front lines in Iraq. Upon returning
to the United States, he took residence in the woods not far out of Pine
Valley. He stumbled across Aidan Devane in his search for the missing
Greenlee duPres and Zach Slater. Since Frank knew the layout of the woods,
he agreed to help Aidan. To keep his identity a secret, he told Aidan
his name was Quinten.
Frank was rushed to Pine Valley Hospital. He had ingested a toxin that
made it hard to breathe. When Joe saw Frank, he called Angie to consult
on his case. Angie and Frank had been estranged since he enlisted in the
army. The ordeal brought son and mother together. The ordeal also brought
another person back to Pine Valley: Jesse. Frank’s father had spent
the last two decades in hiding from a crime lord called the Papel. After
reuniting with his family, Jesse decided he was going to put an end to
the Papel for once and for all. Frank and Colby Chandler were kidnapped
by the Papel. Tad Martin and Jesse were able to rescue them before either
could be hurt. Frank tried to keep Colby at arms length. She had a crush
on the much older doctor.
The Papel turned out to be Robert Gardner. He chose the night of Angie
and Jesse’s wedding to strike again. With Frankie’s help,
Jesse took down his long time tormentor. Along with his sister Cassandra,
the Hubbards settled down in Pine Valley. Both Angie and Frank rejoined
the staff at Pine Valley Hospital.
Frank became close to one of his patients, Randi Morgan. Randi was a prostitue.
Her pimp, Fletcher, was very abusive to her. Randi became a frequent visitor
at the hospital. Frank tried to help Randi, but she pushed him away. Frankie
came to an agreement with Fletcher, seemingly paying for Randi’s
freedom. But Fetcher continued to torment Randi. His reign of terror came
to an end when Frankie’s former army comrade Taylor Thompson caught
Fletcher assaulting Randi. Taylor snapped Fletcher’s neck with her
came to Pine Valley to deliver Frankie’s silver heart. Frankie wanted
to forget about his time in Iraq. Frankie was called back into duty. In
a pre-deployment celebration, Frankie had too much to drink and was caught
drunk driving. His arrest suspended him from active service temporarily.
Another face fom Frankie’s time in Iraq came to Pine Valley. Brot
Monroe was in Frankie’s unit, and was Taylor’s fiance. He
had seemingly perished in a bombing. Frankie caught Brot at the hospital.
Brot had been AWOL. He did not want anyone to know he was alive, especially
Frankie took the opportunity to focus on his relationship with Randi.
Randi had trouble with intimacy because of her years as a prostitute.
