With Ghoulia's help, they manage to lure in a big audience and reach 999,999 hits. However, FrightTube chooses that moment to crash. The Fear Squad anxiously looks on as Ghoulia tries to do something about the crash. Despite her best efforts, the clock strikes 3:00 PM before she succeeds. Cleo tearfully thanks her friends for all they've done, but the mood is promptly improved when Deuce delivers the news that FrightTube crashed because of all the traffic to their video. Rather than a million hits, they've got twn million hits. Their Gloom Beach invitation follows soon after. During the ride to Gloom Beach, Frankie has a dream of becoming the captain of the Fear Squad. She awakes when the bus arrives, only to find that the Fear Squad will be staying in a decrepit cottage.

After finishing the chores, the Fear Squad relaxes at the beach while Cleo and Ghoulia work out a routine. The Fear Squad gathers at dusk to memorize the routine but they are watched by the werecats. Toralei later steals Frankie's recording of the routine and hands it to the Smogsnorts team.

Frankie joins her friends on a visit to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia to visit Lagoona's parents during Spring Break from Monster High. When a kraken destroys their ship and leaves them adrift, an eccentric salesman by the name of Bartleby Farnum, rescues them and takes them to Skull Shores, secretly under the surmise that Frankie will lure out the beast that Farnum is searching for on the island. Frankie is soon taken by said beast, only for the beast to be a young, teenage monster by the name of Andy, who becomes his monstrous, beastly self when experiencing negative emotions like anger, hate, and fear, be it from himself or another. The reason he kidnapped Frankie is because she looks so similar to a young girl Andy met a long time ago, who was not scared of him at all. He had made all the statues Frankie has seen around the island to remind him of her and keep him from assuming his beast form. When Farnum takes Frankie hostage and threatens to drain her electricity, Andy transforms and surrenders to Farnum, only for Farnum's plan to fail when Gil arrives with the kraken to sink Farnum's boat and return the students' repaired boat so they can return home. Frankie is able to convince Andy to leave Skull Shores with them and return to Monster High. However, Farnum launches another attack at the school sometime after Andy has enrolled and is still adapting to modern technology due to his isolation on Skull Shores. When Farnum pushes Andy to transform again, Frankie holds her ground to try and talk him out of it, but he takes her and climbs to the top of the school. Once there, Frankie's further attempts to help Andy fail as he once more surrenders to Farnum, only for Farnum to then be betrayed by his assistant, Kipling, leading to Farnum being tar-and-feathered, and hauled away to a psych ward by a couple of humans who he had called to capture Andy. Like with Andy, Frankie convinces Kipling to stay at Monster High as well, and when Headless Headmistress Bloodgood extends Spring Break another week to deal with repairs to the school caused by Farnum's actions, Frankie joins everyone else as they return to Skull Shores to enjoy their extended Spring Break with the Tiki.

Following an attack by two students from New Salem High, she resolves to do something and through luck and determination she finds the long lost Hall of Halloween. She attempts to re-teach the true meaning of the holiday to everyone, but gets caught up in the events being orchestrated by Lilith Van Hellscream and Cleo to keep the hostilities flaring between humans and monsters. Her first visit to New Salem results in her befriending a couple of the students, Chad and Clair, but she ends up with detention upon returning to Monster High. When Jackson Jekyll/Holt Hyde does not return with them and is still at New Salem, Frankie takes Abbey, Lagoona, and Deuce with her to try and save him. They fail as Jackson is exposed as Holt by Lilith to the New Salem Sheriff, and he plans on executing Holt with the Trick-Or-Treatment. Frankie and the others are allowed to return back to Monster High, where they are given detention once more, along with the threat of expulsion if they return to New Salem again. With Headless Headmistress Bloodgood ordered not to intervene by the Monster Elder Council in saving Holt, Frankie tries to save Holt herself by getting Cleo and Lilith to confess to the Sheriff, but he refuses to release Holt under the surmise of wanting to prove he's a capable lawman. As a result, Frankie joins forces with Lilith, Chad, and Clair, to rescue Holt, and lure the New Salem kids to the Hall of Halloween to show them the true spirit of Halloween, dressing in her Ghouls Rule attire with Cleo, Draculaura, Clawdeen, and Abbey. When the Sheriff and his officers arrive to arrest not only Holt, but Frankie and the other Monster High students as well, Lilith and the New Salem students protect them, forcing the Sheriff and his men to stand down and join the festivities.
Frankie discusses how she was able to help restore the true meaning of Halloween back to both Monster High and New Salem High, and then joins everyone in dancing before a final shot of Frankie and her friends in their Ghouls Rule attire.
Frankie stays behind at Monster High when Draculaura returns to Transylvania with Prime Minister Lord Stoker, Clawdeen, Cleo, Hoodude, and Robecca. Together with Abbey and Lagoona, they stay out of the argument between Toralei and Howleen regarding which of two actors is better than the other, until Operetta suggests settling the matter in Cute Court. It's after the court session is over that Ghoulia reveals a critical piece of information to Frankie and the others before traveling to Hauntlywood with Operetta to tell Draculaura about it. Frankie attends the debut of the latest movie by Veronica Von Vamp, really the Vampire Queen Elissabat, and celebrates with the others when Draculaura receives her full vampire powers.
Frankie finds herself struggling to find information about her family for a project for Mr. Rotter, but her parents withhold telling her anything, and she knows little about her grandfather, Victor Frankenstein. Disappointed by Frankie's pathetic presentation, Mr. Rotter assigns her to redo it. Frankie is also the narrator for a play on Monster High's history that her friends are doing for the performing arts teacher, Mr. Where, to help celebrate Monster High's Bicentennial Anniversary.
During an incident that transports her, Ghoulia, Toralei, Cleo, Draculaura, Clawdeen, Lagoona, Jinafire, Robecca, and Venus to 1814, they see Robecca's father, Hexiciah Steam, as a former professor at Monster High, and a young, intelligent student by the name of Sparky. Sparky is trying to find that critical spark to create life, but continues to fail due to his lack of patience. When Sparky follows them back to Hexiciah's lab after discovering Frankie to be what he's struggling to create, he damages the time portal they came through, causing eight of Frankie's friends to be accidentally fused together into freaky hybrids of themselves as they return to 2014. Frankie and Ghoulia are unaffected since they went through individually, but the others have become Clawvenus(Clawdeen and Venus), Dracubecca(Draculaura and Robecca), Cleolei(Cleo and Toralei), and Lagoonafire(Lagoona and Jinafire).
While Ghoulia tries to fix the portal, Frankie covers for her friends over what happened by thinking up an excuse for Mr. Where regarding their new appearances. Following the dress rehearsal for the play that proves disastrous because of Frankie's friends being unable to control their new bodies, Neighthan Rot comes forward to offer Frankie the help of the new, hybrid students that just enrolled in Monster High with getting her friends accustomed to their new forms. With the aid of Avea, Sirena, Bonita, and Neighthan, Frankie's friends gain better control of their hybrid forms, and a romantic relationship seems to develop between Frankie and Neighthan after he offers his assistance in helping out Frankie. Interesting enough, every time Frankie worries about her friends or is in a deep, emotional state, her neck bolts let off a powerful, green discharge of electricity as a result, shocking Neighthan when it happens. However, no one, not even Frankie, understands why this happens. Neighthan suggests that the discharges prove Frankie is alive because of how she felt at those moments.Tragedy strikes when during the official performance of the play, it is interrupted by Creation 4.0, the latest attempt by Sparky to create life after he was brought to 2014 by accident as well and attempted to try again using modern technology. When the monstrosity captures Frankie's freaky fused friends as it's prisoners, the overwhelming emotional reaction Frankie endures over seeing them in trouble causes the very essence of the spark of her life force to manifest physically as powerful, green electricity for her to use to electrocute Creation 4.0 and free her friends, defusing them in the process, but also taking a heavy toll on Frankie as well. Despite her suffering, she refuses to quit even after freeing Cleo, Toralei, Clawdeen, Venus, Lagoona, and Jinafire, as she uses every ounce of energy she has left to save Robecca and Draculaura, and shut down Creation 4.0 for good, but the toll it takes on her leaves her fatally drained as well. Guilty over what he's done, Sparky apologizes and reveals his true name to be Victor Frankenstein, Frankie's grandfather. Frankie dies happy at having gotten to meet her grandfather in person after all before she passed away. Everyone is devastated and heartbroken over her death. Despite the tragedy, Victor attempts to redeem himself thanks to Ghoulia's encouragement by trying to revive Frankie in a modified version of Hexiciah's rejuvenation chamber, but it takes the spark of joy that Frankie has brought to everyone at Monster High, friends and fellow students alike, that is able to bring her back from the dead, while also changing her physical appearance as well. With streaks of blue, green, and yellow in her black hair, lightning bolt earings and stitches, and a matching dress to boot, Frankie is revived, and following after Victor and Hexiciah return to 1814, Frankie's parents come clean and tell her everything about the family history, including the family photo album. Frankie even manages to finish the play on Monster High's history with her friends, both old and new, as Avea and the other hybrids are welcomed to Monster High with open arms.
Thanks to those events, Frankie's second attempt at her project for Mr. Rotter scores her an "A" for a wonderful job, and she ends with discussing what she learned from her experiences about family and what happened to all her friends from this experience.
Frankie is busy voting for one of her favorite band Casta and the Spells to perform their yearly Halloween concert at Monster High that year. When Gill, Billy, Manny and Deuce approach and tell them they do not know who Casta is, Frankie is so suprise she lets her hand loose. She proceeds to tell the guys who Casta is, by showing them an episode of Monsters of Music on Casta. Later, the vote session is cancelled and its time that Casta announces who the winner of the poll is. When her magic cauldron tells her she'll be playing at Monster High, Frankie and the other students celebrate together.

After telling her that if they can distract her she'll be ab

While doing so, Toralei steals Frankie's VIM pass, as well as the other passes, and when she goes backstage again she is stopped by the security guard.

She is later with Neighthan, showing their relationship still going strong, and joins everyone at the party to celebrate the new unity between Monster High and Haunted High, being taught how to sound and act like a pirate by Vandala Doubloons with Cleo and Ghoulia.
Frankie is part of the group being trained by Toralei for an upcoming dance recital. However, when Lagoona is discovered to be well-skilled with dancing, but seizes up in stage fright when performing in front of a crowd, Frankie tries to help her out with overcoming it. After Toralei humiliates Lagoona by posting her paralyzed expression on the Web, when Lagoona confronts Toralei about it, Frankie ends up being among the friends who are sucked into the Monster High school pool and transported back to Lagoona's home of the Great Scarrier Reef, with Frankie being given a mermaid form based off the electric eel, allowing her to utilize her electrical powers while in that state. They soon meet Posea, daughter of Poseidon, who brought Lagoona back to help overcome her fear, and then return to Lagoona's home to meet her former friend, now arch-rival, Kala Mer'ri, and her ally, the sisters Peri and Pearl Serpentine, along with Lagoona's father and younger siblings. Frankie acts as a pillar of support for Lagoona during their time at the Great Scarrier Reef, all the way up to when they perform in the Siren of the Sea competition, where Lagoona suffers another of her panic attacks, but before Kala can lead the crowd in laughing and jeering at her, Frankie comes to her aid and encourages the crowd to cheer Lagoona on for taking the stage again, despite her stage fright. Kala, enraged, summons her father, the Kraken, and pursues Frankie and the others back to Posea's garden, where Posea reluctantly sends them back to Monster High, returning Frankie to her normal appearance, but also accidentally sending Kala and her father there as well. As Frankie and the others rally the rest of the students to try and save their school from the Kraken's siege, Lagoona is able to confront Kala and convince her to stop her father's rampage as she would be welcomed to Monster High and not be ridiculed like back in the Great Scarrier Reef. Frankie joins everyone in the celebration that follows at the Monster High pool.
Frankie introduces herself to us: she tells us about how her family created her at the power station, and how they needed to have places to hide away from the humans. She talks about how fate brought her to the power station and how the door was locked, but then says that anyone who knows her knows she never gives up. She also talks about how the station was the perfect place for a "ghoul" (girl) brought to life by electricity. She says thankfully, there was someone who loved to read who left books behind for her, but laments she soon read all the books at the station. She then perks up about how one day, Draculaura brought her to Monster High, where she can never stop learning. The result of her experiment is revealed to be popcorn. After eating some, she states she loves science, before realizing she needs to get it upstairs for "Ghouls' Night" (girls' night). She then dashes upstairs and wishes us a good night.
Frankie is first seen watching Draculaura from a window, while the latter is having flying lessons. After this, she follows her back to her house, proving her monsterdom on sight by her stitches and green skin. When inside, Frankie relates her life story to Dracula to try and convince him to let her stay (while Draculaura makes sure he's convinced with her cute face). From then on, the two become fast friends: they plan a school and village, and secretly go off in search of other monsters to join the school. Frankie decides to head to the moors despite Draculaura's worries, deducing (correctly) that a secluded place is ideal for a monster to hide. That monster turns out to be Clawdeen, whose fearsome wolf form almost convinces Draculaura to flee before Frankie notices the crescent amulet normal wolves wouldn't have. After Frankie relates to Clawdeen that she and Draculaura are monsters who come in peace and their plans for a monster-friendly world, the werewolf immediately softens up to them and shifts into her werebeast form. The three then seek out other monsters.
