While reading a biography of the great Asa Buchanan, Jared first appeared on the scene, from a prison cell, as a mysterious man who stated an interest in looking up an old friend once he was released! We later found out that while Jessica was Tess, she set Jared up and sent him away to the big house!
Jared was involved in nothing but drama since the moment he arrived in Llanview! While pretending the be Asa's long lost son, he fell in love with Natalie Buchanan. Before they could come clean with his deception, Dorian Lord let the cat out of the bag, which lead to a confrontation with Nash Brennan, who later died as a result!
While attempting to rescue Natalie from being locked in Llanfair's secret room, by Tess, Jared found himself locked behind the soundproof walls as well. However, Charlie rescued them then the family pulled together to help Jessica deal with the past.
Not wanting to wait, Jared and Natalie married, and did their part to take care of Jessica's children while she was in St. Anne's. They later uncovered the fact that Jessica had switched the babies - and that Chloe was in fact Starr's baby Hope!
Just when life appeared to be calm again, after helping Jessica rebuild her life, and deal with yet another loss, Chloe, Jared and Natalie had a stalker on their hands, who was blaming them for Nash's death. Jared was even attached and beaten at Buchanan Enterprises - and made to look like the stalker!
In the end, the truth came out that Jared was being blackmailed to help stalk Jessica by Wayne Landers, through Mitch Laurence, who shot Jared in cold blood - and left Charlie feeling the guilt of Jared having covered up the fact that Charlie inadvertently killed Jared's stepfather while drunk.
Natalie Buchanan (May 13, 2009 - widowed)
Charlie Banks (father)
Jimmy (brother - deceased)
Charlie trudges through the snow, stops to look at the gun then vows that Mitch is as good as dead. When Charlie falls, Jared appears and asks, "What're you doing, Dad?" Charlie keeps saying, "You're gone," but Jared stares him in the eye and says, "A murderer… Is that who you really are?" Charlie vows to murder Mitch - for murdering any chance that he and Jared had - but Jared says, "I'll still be dead… Will you be able to accept it then?" Jared wonders if Mitch is just the middle man, saying, "Maybe you don't need him to do what you really want to do." Charlie takes out the gun, agrees that his life is worthless now - now that he's lost Jared and Viki - but vows to avenge Jared, so he can rest in peace. "That's what you want, isn't it?" Charlie asks, but Jared disappears. "I know what I have to do," Charlie says then rushes off.
At Llanfair, after Natalie looks at a photo of her and Jared, he appears and says, "Hi Sparky…" "Hi Natty," Rex says, breaking her trance, and Natalie cries about Jared - and says she wishes he would have gotten her pregnant, so she could have been left with a piece of him. Natalie urges Rex to go fight for Gigi and warns him, "Gigi is still here… Don't let her become a memory." Later, Natalie takes a pregnancy test, and when Jared reappears, she looks at it and sees she's not pregnant. Natalie cries to Jared that she has nothing left of him, but Jared assures her she'll always have memories. Natalie watches as Jared walks off into the darkness, blowing her a kiss goodbye.
