In a flashback, Frank was a Vietnam veteran who came home from the war traumatized. He became estranged from Carol and eventually got a job as a security guard for a military lab. Inside the lab was a woman who was strapped to a table and repeatedly cut open and screaming in pain. Horrified, he tried to rescue her. The lead scientist, Dr. Lawrence Sinclair, intercepted their escape attempt and claimed the woman isn't human, and their research on her will achieve miracles. Frank declared him a madman and fought him. Sinclair accidentally shot an oxygen tank that blew up the building. Frank and the woman barely escaped and assumed everyone else was killed. The woman introduced herself as Laura. While on the run, the two shared a romantic and sexual relationship. Eventually, the two went their separate ways, then Frank reconciled with Carol and had Danny.
