Having known Frankie since she was five, Winston never thought of her as anything other than his "best friend's annoying little sister". However, when Frankie joined his club, Comic Book Society, Winston realized that they shared a common interest in comic books and that there actually was a lot he didn't know about her. It was revealed that they were mutually attracted to one another when they shared a kiss in the Hollingsworth pool, though they swore that Miles Hollingsworth III, Frankie's older brother and Winston's best friend, could never find out. The two later became a couple in Out of My Head and had a pleasant relationship for some time until Winston accidentally kissed Frankie's best friend, Lola Pacini. Winston swore Lola to secrecy, but Lola later confessed to Frankie, who in turn, broke up with Winston in Walking in My Shoes. Afterwards, the two spent time working on a musical together where Frankie fell for Winston again. The two got back together in The Kids Aren't Alright (2). After Frankie gets an internship over the summer, she develops feelings for an older boy, Logan, in Don't Look Back. Throughout this time, Frankie constantly dismisses Winston for Logan and admits to Winston she's not sure whether or not she likes Logan more than Winston. Frankie eventually finds out that Logan was just using her for her money, and she goes back to Winston asking to start their relationship over from the beginning. However, the damage was done, and Winston breaks up with Frankie. In Season 15, there are hints of the two still having feelings for one another as Frankie talks about getting back together with Winston with her friends, and Winston asks Frankie to the Snow Ball. During this time though Frankie has been interacting with Jonah Haak and decides to pursue a relationship with him instead.
In You Are Not Alone, Miles teases Winston about using his club, the Comic Book Society, to try and meet girls, stating that cute girls aren't interested in comic books.

In class, Winston notices his name was used during a game of MASH, which Frankie and Keisha had been playing. Zoë and Tristan explain to him that in the game there are four options for each category and that he was the "shack" of the future husband category.
After school, Winston goes over to the Hollingsworth home to confront Frankie about the MASH game. When Miles leaves, Frankie appears in front of Winston and takes off her robe revealing a pink bikini. Winston is stunned at the sight of her and momentarily forgets his anger.
Frankie smiles at him, and Winston backs up and accidentally falls into the pool. Frankie dives in and pulls him to safety. Winston accuses her of getting into the bikini to distract him, but Frankie says that she doesn't need an elaborate plan to make him look dumb. He says that she has been doing it all week in the club meetings and in her MASH game, where he was the loser. However, Frankie asks him, "Who said you were the loser?" Frankie reveals she meant for Winston to see the MASH game so he would know that she liked him. The two kiss in the pool, before pulling away, saying that Miles could never know about this. They then kiss again.In Enjoy the Silence, Winston is at the Hollingsworth home before school, playing a video game while waiting for Miles.

Tristan realizes that Winston actually has feelings for Frankie and isn't just messing around with her. Tristan calls out to Miles, saying that Winston knows who kissed Frankie. Winston freaks out and pegs Damon as the guy who kissed Frankie.

Keisha comments that she isn't going to let some "stupid boy" ruin the modeling audition for her. When it is Frankie's turn to walk, Winston films her as she auditions. Zoë and Keisha reassure her that she killed her audition, and Zoë comments, "Winston Chu, eat your heart out."

In Out of My Head, Frankie finds out she got added onto the list of models and is searching for why Becky chose to reverse her decision. Zoë, Keisha and the rest of the school think it's because Frankie is rich and that her mother bribed Becky with money. Frankie doesn't think her mother did, but she asks her brother about it. Miles tells her that he thinks it would definitely be something that their mother would do.Before the fashion show starts, Frankie approaches Becky, asking her if Frankie's mother paid her to give Frankie a modelling spot. Becky laughs and tells Frankie that she would never accept a bribe. Frankie confused asked then why did Becky change her mind about Frankie being a model.

Afterwards, Becky felt bad as Frankie did a really good job during the audition and that it was only right that Frankie be allowed to be a model. During the show, Frankie sees Winston and confronts him about the matter. She calls him a jerk, and he apologizes, with Frankie asking if he thought she was ugly. Winston, confused, lets her know that he thinks she's beautiful and tells her that he only didn't want to be around her because he liked her, she's his best friend's sister, and rattles off a list of excuses.

Later, Frankie sees Winston in the corridor and thinks about approaching him. Frankie considers getting back with Winston because she remembers she was happy with him, but she changes her mind when she realizes she is interested in Jonah Haak.
In #SinceWeBeinHonest, in Frankie's classroom, the door opens, and Frankie finds a goat with a note on it saying Snow Ball. Winston is there dressed in a farmer's outfit and asks Frankie to be his date to the Snow Ball. He's using a goat to ask her out because he remembers that goats are her favorite animal. Frankie agrees happily.
In #SorryNotSorry, it's the day before the Snow Ball, and Frankie still hasn't gotten a dress. Lola and Shay are mortified because if Winston and Frankie have a good time at the Snow Ball that would mean they could get back together, and Frankie's not taking it seriously. Frankie expresses that she's not even sure if she wants to be with Winston anymore, but Lola and Shay convince Frankie to just focus on getting a dress. At the Hollingsworths, Frankie can't find a dress at home and comes to the living room to ask Miles when their mom was going to be available to take her shopping. She finds Winston in the living room hanging out with Miles already dressed up for the dance. Frankie apologizes for not realizing he was here and losing track of time, but Winston tells her not to worry as she's worth waiting for. Winston uses this opportunity to give her a silver necklace. Frankie touched, says that he didn't need to buy this especially after the flowers she received earlier that day. Winston says he didn't give her flowers, and at this moment, Frankie realizes that the flowers were from Jonah. Winston asks if she likes the necklace, and Frankie says while it's beautiful she can't accept it as she can't go to the Snow Ball with Winston anymore. Winston realizes that she must be going with another guy and angrily asks who the guy is. Frankie says its not what Winston thinks, and she's not sure if it is something yet. Winston bitterly wishes whoever the guy is good luck because with Frankie he'll need it and walks away heart broken.
