Connors is the father of Jake Hanson, who had been separated from Jake for most of Jake's life. Jake visits him in Season 3 but is greeted with a frosty reception and Jake learned that he'd been conceived via a one-night stand, and that the happily married Vince wasn't interested in spending much time with him. Eventually, an angered Jake opt to leave the town, but Vince—moved by Jake's words of disappointment—eventually caught up to him. Vince then produced a picture of Jake as a teenager, revealing that he'd kept it for years, and stated that he cared about him deep down. The two men then hugged and parted ways.
