Frankie is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She was a member of the Saviors and one of Negan's former "wives". After the apparent death of Rick Grimes, she becomes a member of the Alexandria Safe-Zone and adopts a daughter.
San Francisco, California
Nothing is known about Frankie's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she was a licensed massage therapist, and lived within the San Francisco-metro area.
At some point in the apocalypse, Frankie somehow came into contact with a group named "the Saviors" which she subsequently joined.
In order to avoid working for points, she volunteered to become one of Negan's "wives".
At the Sanctuary, Frankie is seen in a well-furnished room with Sherry, Amber, Tanya, and a couple of Negan's other wives. As soon as Negan leaves the room, Frankie and the other women comfort an upset Amber. Later, Frankie stands with the other wives and witness Mark's face being ironed.
Frankie, Tanya and Amber watch Eugene as he plays video games. Tanya and Frankie sit next to him, while Amber sits away from the group, drinking. During conversation, Tanya jokingly asks if Eugene knows how to make a bomb. Eugene lists the ingredients he would need to make one. Eugene walks outside with Amber, Tanya, and Frankie. He mixes ingredients and ignites a bomb. The wives clap giddily.
Frankie and Tanya visit Eugene, seeking his help; they explain that Amber wants to commit suicide and ask if he can make some pills for her. Eugene reluctantly agrees. Tanya, Frankie, and Amber are shown in the factory floor where a crowd has gathered around the furnace. Tanya watches horrified as Negan throws Dr. Carson into the furnace and angrily leaves while Amber and Frankie comfort each other. Frankie and Tanya visit Eugene in his apartment. He correctly guesses that the pills are for Negan, not Amber, and refuses to hand them over. Tanya calls him a coward and they leave.
Frankie has been assigned to the new outpost as Eugene's servant, responsible to help with whatever he may need. She expresses interest in Eugene's work and asks him to teach her how to make bullets, but he ignores her request and instead tells her to relay his breakfast order to Tanya. When Negan arrives, Frankie takes a knee along with everyone else and witnesses a captured Gabriel being delivered to Eugene as his newest worker.
Frankie and Tanya criticize Eugene's request for a sardine and mac n' cheese dish, with Tanya stating that she can't believe garlic was wasted for that dish. She listens to Eugene's speeches about making enough bullets to aid Simon and Negan in the battle against the survivors.
Frankie walks around with Amber and Tanya at the Sanctuary as the Saviors prepare for the final assault.
After the war, Frankie is dressed in normal clothing instead of the clothes she wore as Negan's wife. She and Tanya greet Tara Chambler and Rosita Espinosa at the Sanctuary when they arrive to fix the glass that was shattered previously by the Militia.
In a flashback, Frankie enjoys a bonfire with the other Alexandrians and the children in Jocelyn's group. The next morning, she, along with Scott, Michonne, and Jonah's parents, head over to the house where Jocelyn's group was staying to pick up their kids from a sleepover. After finding the house empty and the kids missing, she and the other parents frantically search Alexandria. She checks the infirmary and finds it ransacked and informs Michonne of what she found just as they find an Alexandria resident murdered by the pantry.
The next morning, Frankie watches as Michonne and Daryl return to Alexandria with the kids. She immediately runs over to hug her daughter.
In the Kingdom, Frankie watches from the crowd as Ezekiel declares they've finally accomplished Rick, Carl, and Jesus' dreams of reuniting the communities. "Let the fair of a new beginning begin!" Ezekiel says as everyone celebrates and applauds.
In the fair, Frankie and Alice ask Henry if he is looking for someone as they notice he appears to be flustered. "I hope you find them!" Frankie tells Henry as he continues his way around the fair. Somehow, Frankie is among the residents kidnapped by Alpha and taken away to a stable in the woods.
In the stable, Frankie alongside the other tied up residents are about to be attacked by the Whisperers but are found by Ozzy, Alek, and D.J, giving the group a chance to fight back. During the fight, Frankie, her hands still bound, teams up with Adeline to take down one of the Whisperers together. In the middle of the chaos, Alpha arrives and the group is subued and then killed, only leaving Siddiq alive as a witness. Later, Alpha puts Frankie's decapitated head on one of the several pikes used for the Whisperers' border.
The next day, Daryl, Michonne, Carol, Siddiq, and Yumiko find the border and watch in horror at the victims, a reanimated Frankie being among them.
Later, in the Kingdom, Siddiq delivers the tragic news to the crowd, tells them how brave everyone was in their final moments and how they all fought back. He encourages everyone to remember the fallen as brave heroes and to honor them.
- Killed By
- Alpha (Alive, Off-Screen)
In order to mark a border between the land belonging to the Whisperers and the communities, Alpha disguises herself and infiltrates the fair to kidnap several residents. Afterward, she decapitates them and then places their heads on wooden pikes to mark the border, with Frankie being among them.
After finding the border, her zombified head is put down by either Daryl, Carol, Michonne, Siddiq, or Yumiko.
This list shows the victims Frankie has killed:
Frankie and Amber have a good relationship. They both serve as Negan's wife.
Frankie and Tanya have a good relationship as they are often seen together. They both serve as Negan's wife, and both share mutual hatred towards him.
- "That would be a tactical error on your part. They'll believe me over you for the same reason he believed Dwight over the doctor. You're replaceable to him."
- —Eugene after Frankie threatens to report him to Negan[src]
Frankie and Eugene have a rather poor relationship. At first they get along when Frankie, Tanya, and Amber keep Eugene when he first comes the Sanctuary. But then when Eugene refuses to give her and Tanya the pills to kill Negan and her threats don't work on Eugene, she cuts off any kind of friendship they have between them.
- In a deleted scene from "Wrath", Frankie is present with Amber, Tanya, and hundreds of other Saviors in the Sanctuary as they listen to Negan's speech about wiping out the survivors with Eugene's bullets.
- It is shown in "Scars" that she moved to the Alexandria Safe-Zone before the Sanctuary fell. It also revealed that she adopted a daughter.
